    I voted for it. I am a great believer and champion of freedom so i am not for banning guns, rather a bit of control. I have heard the arguement about the need for ak47s for "home defense" as the criminals have them but i do feel that this has a lot to do with the fact that the guns were so accessable in the first place.
    Criminals will get guns...fact... this is not going to change from stricter gun controls but perhaps we could reduce the number of columbines or irate sacked postal worker incidents with tighter controls.
    As i said i don't want to ban the guns even though it would be nice to have less of them....all i would like to see is tighter background checks and perhaps introduce random inspections to see if people that do have guns are following the terms of the permit.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I am against control on the principle that you will never stop the use of guns. I think that the right to defend youself, by whatever means, is sacrosanct.

    Boab and I have achieved (momentarily, at least) perfect alignment.

    Please don't feel bad, Boab!

    Boab is quite right.

    I personally have a small stock pile of thermo-nuclear devices - as I am convinced criminal elements have access to these.

    i think it would be fairr to use livefire arms at a gun club and keep replicas that cant fire bullets at home.


    however i think oppinions should shift with the state of society. i dont feel i need a gun to protect myself. but as it apparently gets easier to get guns maybe i will feel the need to protect myself, to fight fire with fire as it were

    i think it's funny that many of the NRA members are conservatives... the very people that admired Reagan, who was credited with the USA part in the historic reduction of Arms treaty with the soviet union . Yet it seems they support the domestic arms race we have today

    It's pretty hard to get a gun here, I guess our system is an example of how proper gun control would look.

    I have to say that a lot less people, even percentage-wise, get shot around these parts.

    Otherwise...

    More Gun Control?

    Use both hands!

    As they say.
