    I don't currently own a gun, but grew up with guns (used to hunt game). Shooting is fun! But shooting people is not fun.

    Even when people are trained to use it, kids misuse them. Sadly it happens. Either parents are negligent or just ignorant.

    So are we saying we should bring a gun to work? To school? To restaurants? What about abroad? Should we be allowed to take guns abroad to protect ourselves from what might be irrational individuals?

    Crazy world

    Seeing people walk into schools and other places of public assembly with open carry is creepy and unnerving to me.

    I am for restricting the types of guns that a citizen can own with a permit / registration.

    Gun control, in general, has not been politically popular -- and its popularity has been declining lately.

    Gun owner here. Dad was a gunsmith, brother a 1950's NRA champion.

    The guns I own are collector's item antiques. They interesting. I grew up on a ranch and in an area where everyone hunted for food, and on a ranch, a gun is a tool: badly wounded deer (during hunting season), rattle snakes, porcupines (kill cattle and trees).

    Later I was with the US Biathlon team

    No one I know has ever shot anyone. Target shooting and hunting are legitimate activities.

    With respect:

    "I do not agree with gun ownership." What does that mean?

    "no good will ever come out of a gun." Too simplistic.

    I'm all for stringent gun control, but it really does have to be both realistic and rational.

    Jindal's a moron. The things you mention are moronic. It really amazes me, the depth of fear people buy into, and the idiotic lengths they go to to "protect" themselves.

    No but I plan to be someday

    I think drugs and guns are in the same boat almost. They both do harm to people and in the wrong hands cause major destruction. In responsible hands, they are relatively safe. Meaning the owners don't let children get them and they aren't over using it. You can say "soft" drugs are acceptable as well as handguns and pistols and hunting weapons. Whereas "hard" drugs and assault rifles, etc are not acceptable and unnecessary.

    We can ban them and control them but the people will still find a way to get them. We can regulate them like we do now and just allow criminals to be charged for using them inappropriately.

    Either way, the issue with all these things is not the product but the lack of consistent quality mental health. Lack of morals and values and education is what is killing this country, not guns. What drives people to use hard drugs and shoot places up? That's what we need to get to, not banning and suppressing an entire nation for a few men's acts.

    http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/ex-air-force-officer-gun-laws-not-gun-free-zones-are-the-real-problem

    .So-called “gun-free zones” do not make people more vulnerable to gun violence. The fact is, 86% of mass shootings – which the FBI defines as four or more murders – occur elsewhere, such as at home, in the streets, or in workplaces, according to research by Everytown for Gun Safety. Many of these shootings relate to domestic violence, and more than half the victims of mass shootings are women. Many of these mass shootings never grab national headlines. You may not know this, but a mass shooting that killed two adults and two teenagers, and left an eight-year-old boy fighting for his life, happened just this month in a private home in Holly Hill, South Carolina.

    I do own three guns.
    Not that I would ever use them. They just found their way into the box into my attic. The only reason they are there is because I don't know where to dispose of them without legal drama.

    For me I would never try to find safety in holding weapons.
    I'm pretty good at judo but how are you even going to start that with a meth head at 3 am?

    I feel quite secure living somewhere with low crime rate and pursuing a life without conflict.
    Still, if you want to take my TV, bitch please...just go ahead.

    "Hello? Burglar person? If you are looking for a snack I like the anchovis on rye toast with cottage cheese but if it's worth you are after...there's a safe under the basement stairs. I put paper and a pen on the steps?
    Ok, it's 946...735.
    Ok?

    I put put two twenties and a prepaid so you can score your meth quickly. You're welcome!
    G'night!"

    I don't know how anyone would go all high noon over shit you have insurance for.

    Are you assuming we won World War II with rainbows and puppies?

    Guns can be used for self-defense. Unfortunately, a small minority of gun owners use them for lawless and violent purposes.

    This is not a Second Amendment issue. These are just idiots that think they're actually protecting military recruiters. Total circus.

    The sad thing about that picture is not the neckbeard with the cammie kilt. It's the guy in the middle. He's supposedly an Iraq War vet. That's his therapy dog next to him. The chick on the right, I think she just got lost on her way to Comicon.
