Just trying to point out, that if a criminal wants to commit a crime, using a weapon, he will find one, so what good does it do to keep responsible citizens from having access to the same weapons, for self-defense.
There's nothing the criminal element would like to see more, than to have all weapons made illegal.
All that does, is give the criminal, the advantage.
I don't consider that, a level playing field.
I feel safer with only an odd criminal to worry about,than every "Tom, Dick and Harry"playing Rambo.
assumes that every individual, that handles a weapon, is some kind of a nut, on a power trip.
I also believe that children should not be allowed to posses stun guns/tasers.
Most, do not have the maturity necessary, or the training, to be given that kind of responsibility.
I would be stupid to think you could keep weapons out of the hands of criminals.
I didn't figure you thought that, DSTM
You don't strike me as a "stupid" person.
I was just getting a little bored at 1 AM this morning, saw this thread getting a little one sided, and thought I'd stir things up, a bit.
