Liberals.

California in a nutshell. They have this law that requires handguns to be white-listed to be sold there. That might seem reasonable, since, after all, the law was passed in the name of safety. In reality, the law almost bans handguns entirely, since there are a finite number allowed, and it only shrinks as those guns become discontinued, with no new ones added for a long time.

If you are not a citizen of the US, you probably have even worse gun laws. My sympathies if you have any wish to defend yourself, hunt, or shoot for sport.

If you are a liberal who supports the Second Amendment, then I apologize for offending you, which is seldom the reason I apologize to anyone.

NEW Liberal-
Approved Handguns!

Thank you for the apology in the description. Most people wouldn't be kind enough to do that.

That's a head of lettuce.

"States with lax gun laws had higher rates of handgun killings, fatal shootings of police officers, and sales of weapons that were used in crimes in other states, according to a study underwritten by a group of more than 300 U.S. mayors."

http://www.guncite.com/journals/dkjgc.html - A nice article about gun crimes in Japan, the country with probably the strictest laws regarding weaponry. If you don't feel like reading it, I'll just let you know that gun crime is almost non-existent in that country.

You may say that these laws are bad, but they seem to be working pretty well and having a good effect to me.

Now, I'm not sure how closely you've read the second amendment, but I have to say I disagree with your interpretation. I take it to mean that people have been given the right to bear arms as militia members, but not just to play around with.

Furthermore, would you say it would be okay for your neighbor to have a missile in his back yard ready to launch? I mean, a missile is an arm in the same sense a gun is.

Also, hand guns aren't very good for home defense due to the extensive training necessary to use them safely and properly in a situation that calls for it. This is especially true if you have children who you have to keep the gun locked away from. Then you'd have to go and get it in the dark while your adrenaline is pumping and you've just been woken up before the criminal, assuming they're violent, comes for you.

Also, how often are handguns actually USED when hunting? I know a lot of people carry them, but how often are they actually used?

And, how much actual sport shooting is done with handguns? I mean, skeet shooting is usually done with a rifle of some sort, so I don't think you'd really be missing out in that respect.

I'm really curious as to what you make of this as a gun advocate. I don't expect to change your mind, but at least consider it.

You aremicans should feel lucky. I mean, most of why people get killed so often from guns, are because of the major paranoia inducing newscasting. Sure, the gun laws are kinda liberal, and over here in Norway, the laws are very strict what regarding guns.

But then again, we have very few deaths by guns, or news corporations only covering killings, and gun cases.

I'm not saying it's not possible. Black market.

But it is however, proven, that the media in the US cover cases that has the highest 'shock' value, and hence the term 'sensationalism.' When this is th eonly thing people see in the news, they're frightened, and turn to guns.

Another thing is, tha we have a more peacfull mentality about crimes, and we also have support structures in place to help those who have strayed, or have need for help.

To a sad, lonely, suicidal person in the US, the best option is suicide, but to be remembered, you gotta do something horrible.

ABB wanted to be remembered as a horrible person. And all the attention he got, was just what he wanted.

i'm liberal, i approve of guns, just not for stupid assholes who try to find loopholes in the law and kill someone (not "he was in my house i was defending myself" cause there actually is no argument there, but i mean the kind of person that calls the cops, says they will kill someone, are told by the cops to wait for police to get there, but kill that other person anyway), it's not the weapon, it's the person

I live in Canada, love guns, and everything about them, such as mechanisms and so on. However, I'm not sure how to get a gun licence, or what guns are legal to own, and i can imagine that they would be limited to hunting rifles, shotguns, etc. I am hoping to maybe get a few handguns and an assault rifle, but I'm not sure where to get them or if they are even legal. Anyone from Canada know the gun laws well?
