with guns we are citizens, without them we are defenseless sheep. i fully support reasonable gun control laws but i do not support those who, out of ignorance or fear, would try to take away the right to conceal and carry from law abiding citizens.

there's a reason that unstable people choose gun free zones, easy targets and less chances of a confrontation. gun control, quite simply, should be wielded by the person that has a gun in their hand, and not by the government.

keep in mind that no law can keep people safe. strict gun control laws do not deter criminals who will always have them and use them against innocent people. who wants only the government and criminals to have access to guns?

good people who are well-armed are the counter to well-armed bad people and we cannot count on the police who are normally notified after a crime has been committed.

while not everyone should have access to guns, people should be encouraged to learn defensive tactics and many others should learn basic firearm safety. crimes and massacres can be stopped if well-armed and well-trained people are vigilant in defending themselves and others.
