So your answer is to do nothing and give them an easy means to commit an atrocity?
For every Timothy McVey who is willing to plan for months, how many gun deaths are committed in the heat of the moment would be eliminated?
While I respect to your right to hold any opinion you like, opinions are not facts. The significantly lower rate of gun deaths and guns used in crimes in countries with gun restrictions is a fact.
Frankly the need for every drunk, jealous ex-husband to find a Mexican smuggler would be an excellent deterrent.
So you want freedoms to be subjective? You want the vast majority to be restricted because of the sick minority? If there were no guns, the jealous husband can more easily get a knife out of his kitchen. Guns are not the problem, the person is. People that argue against guns have blinders on and still fail to see that criminal is criminal. Take away one tool, they find another. This is how it is and pointing the fingers at a gun is a weak excuse.
For Edge and the comment about an old slip of paper, I have no respect for anything you post because you have no respect for this country.
