Re: [humanism-174] Presidential Politics

As much as I hate guns, I am not for the general disarmament of citizens. Many "gun people" seem to have a knee-jerk reaction at ANY talk of any sort of gun control.
That evil Cho character purchased his guns perfectly legally... also, I wish I would have started collecting newspaper articles years ago- the ones that read something like, "Man shoots family dead, then turns gun on himself". I'm sure I'd have hundreds by now. A guy I worked with lost it with a gun, but thankfully he only killed himself (although in front of his family).
I must add the Columbine kids... certain faction's pathetic attempts to blame the tragedy on "Goth" music & such, instead of blaming the false but deadly power certain people have when they have a gun in their hands.
 
These are just a few reasons for SOME gun control.

I think the anti-gun thing is ridiculous. Those who are for disarmament of citizens are seeming to forget that the government will have all of the guns then. And those who break the law will still have them, because they won't turn them in. Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin and Mao were anti-gun advocates you may want to read up on.
