    @MortyForTyrant

    Am I correct that you live in Germany having been born there? I am operating on that assumption so please correct me if I am wrong.

    Here are some interesting facts on gun laws in Germany.

    http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/germany

    The rate of private gun ownership in Germany is 30.31 firearms per 100 people

    Unlawfully held guns cannot be counted, but in Germany there are estimated to be 17,000,0005

    Your regulations are not that different from laws already on the books here in the USA. (state and federal)

    Germany is number 4 in the world for gun ownership.

    Just some information Morty. So why don’t you ban all guns in Germany first and then worry about the ones in the USA. Lead by example.

    Israel has tighter gun controls than the U.S., as does Switzerland, yet lots of people have guns.

    First no one is saying ban guns. The right wing and the NRA won’t even allow the ATF to computerize gun records to make crime searches more up to date. The gun laws need to be modernized but the right wing nuts scream ‘their coming to take my guns away!’

    @Rad-ish

    Yes they are saying ban all guns. The current legislation is a compromise on that position.

    @Bruce4671

    There is always some paranoid plot about banning all guns but we both know this won’t happen. Get off the program and think for yourself.

    @omQ Release the Desaparecidos

    Good one. I know why, do you? But I suppose it is good that you point out the fact this is an “opinion piece”.

    The original intent – of course – was for the population of a region – city, town county – would be available to band together under the direction of some “authority” and mount a defense of that area. The need for the individual to be prepared made it necessary for them to own and maintain a weapon and appropriate supplies in what we call a “ready bag” today. I even have a list of what was expected (and have my ready bag all ….(hehehe) ready.

    But a good article. Thanks.

    Dude, you are not paranoid if they really are out to get you.

    I bet there are a bunch of people that have said the same thing about some other problem only to wake up one day dead.

    You really should take your own advice. Think.

    You’re welcome, thought you’d appreciate it.

    Tigger, poor thing, unable to read and analyze again. Israel, despite “neighbor problems” has a very low homicide and suicide rate, same for Switzerland. The very POINT is that NRA is full of it, as strict REGULATIONS DO make “gun ownership” a MUCH SAFER “proposition”!

    @DrCanuck

    Sure, if it make s you feel better, I’ll agree that t is a possibility.

    It isn’t the weapon that kills – no matter what weapon is chosen. If you eliminate every gun on the planet do you think that violent crime will end?

    @DrCanuck

    No. The reason is that I have to defend myself and my family with a kitchen knife while the criminal that is STILL able to find and buy an AK or AR is blasting me with 7.62’s or .223’s 30 to the magazine.

    So am I being “selfish”? Yes. Too bad. I have the obligation to protect my family and the right (so far anyway) to have the proper tools to do so.

    I’m sure you have no problems in Canada that the Mounties can’t solve…..given time.

    Doc: From the head of my drive, I can look over the hill at night and see the lights of a minimum security prison, less than a mile away. I don’t bother to lock my doors when going into town for the day, but do if gone for several days and my “attack dachshund” isn’t at home. I own guns, and they are locked in a gun safe most of the time.


    Now the interesting thing relative to the ’toon is: Most of the prisoners in that prison are there for marijuana related crimes (most were more users than dealers) and many were convicted of “sex crimes”. Now some of those “sex crimes” are just VIEWING PORN ON A COMPUTER! Those guys will be on felony conviction “criminal” lists for the rest of their lives, and NOT be able to buy a gun because of background checks. Now, the other interesting thing is; the guys in there for armed robbery finishing out there sentences here, WILL be able to get off that “convicted” list upon release, and buy guns again!


    So, thanks to “conservative fears”, a guy looking at pictures on a computer, is of course more dangerous, for life, than a guy with a MAC 10 holding up a 7/11.

    I’m sure.

    What is the population where you live?
