Again you ignore the fact that at least in America, guns have statistically been shown to save more innocent lives than to take lives, in terms of defensive deployment vs murders; and you can argue with statistics all day in order to legitimize your agenda but the facts remain.

Obviously nobody in this forum is going to be swayed to change sides so really it's a pointless debate.

But I hope some of you can at least open your minds to all of the aspects surrounding this discussion, and to at least realize that the majority of gun owners are good decent people who truly love to go hunting, target shooting, and love the piece of mind that if they had to defend their family from a bad guy in the middle of the night that they can.

Many of you will never know how important that is to some people until you or someone you love has been killed or almost killed and literally had no way to defend yourselves.

Most of you don't know and hopefully will never know how long it actually feels like to wait for the police or the ambulance to arrive to your indefinite rescue. This is my last post on this topic but just want to leave you with a few things to consider.
