    A criminal’s paradise.

    Then why do the European countries that have far less guns also have far less crime?

    I will however admit that it might just be too late for the US, as we already have at least one gun for every American, and that includes our considerable criminal element. And I sadly have to admit that it might just no longer even be possible to even start to head in any other direction!!

    If you have any practical non ultra conservative answers, I for one, would be glad to hear them.

    One such thing that I would like to see is a total and enforced ban or military style high capacity semi automatic assault guns. And if the criminal element has and uses such weaponry then that is why we should have more police trained tactical assault teams with those very weapons, to say nothing of the ultimate back up to them in the US military itself.

    Doing this in no way infringes upon the honest citizens ability to own normal hand guns, rifles and shot guns. A right in itself that most reasonable Americans still fully support!

    @Robert Landers

    PS: I have posted this before where I also state that I am perfectly happy with certain gun clubs and ranges having such weaponry available for those people that have to just go out and shoot them. But those places should be very highly controlled so such weaponry does not get our to the criminal elements or even the mentally deranged.

    Heck, I would even be happy to see the NRA actually do something useful in teaching gun safety and monitoring such places for compliance with the kinds of strict methods to prevent these weapons from falling into the wrong hands!

    Such places could even be set up to allow those with a real itch for such activities to blow away old steel barrels, old cars, and other such objects with fully automatic weapons, as long as it was done safely and the weaponry monitored to keep it out of the hands of the wrong people!

    Chicago. Regulation and laws don’t work.
    Please stop comparing America to other countries. We are unique.
    Abortion kills hundreds of thousands, people kill hundreds with guns. That’s the irony, progressives actually promote the killing of children yet say they want to protect us all from the evil of inanimate objects.
    The inconsistencies of liberalism.

    In the first place states are the source of funding for abortions as the federal government is forbidden to do so except in the case of the direct health of the potential mother, rape, or incest, by the Hyde Amendment (look it up).

    And many states forbid the procedure in the third trimester of pregnancy (after 6 months of pregnancy). And before that the fetus is not even considered viable outside of the womb of the mother, and so is not even a baby, let alone a child.

    So it is either at best a misunderstanding that children themselves are being aborted, or an out and out lie. If all such abortion procedures are outlawed are you and all the other “narrowminded” ultra conservatives on here going to happily see an increase of enormous proportions (with a consequent increase in taxes) in welfare to make sure that all of those “children” are not then raised in misery and abject poverty as most of the potential mothers are relatively poor and usually on their own (the childcare costs while the mother works would be staggering alone)?

    If so, then you are indeed an unusual ultra conservative, and a good Christian example of a true compassionate conservative. If you are indeed that honest, then I salute you!!

    We as a country have the highest death by car ratio in the world and their the No.1 killer of children so why don’t we require background checks for car purchases or a permit to purchase (you don’t even need a license to buy one nor is their an age limit), put governors on the engines and restrict the size of the vehicles and out law the loaning of a car to another person.

    I would also point out that according to the FBI more people are killed with hammers and clubs than rifles or shotguns and we aren’t even talking about banning those implements of destruction.

    safe legal abortion SAVES lives.

    most people, the constitution and the bible do not consider sperm, eggs, zygotes, embryo’s and fetuses to be “people”.

    Crazy people shouldn’t be flaying about with guns or hammers, or cars or broken bottles or razor blades or box cutters… The question is how to keep weapons out of the hands of people who aren’t qualified to use them properly. Airlines do it. Court houses do it. Departments of Motor Vehicles do it. Why can’t yer local gun purveyor do it too? Come on, America. Solve the problem. Stop kicking the bloody can.

    Being pro-choice is about letting a woman make decisions about her own body. Germany and The Netherlands have incredibly lax abortion regulations, yet also have incredibly low rates…mainly because they also provide support for children and families. Conservatives want you to have the kid, but also don’t want to give the kid any kind of help (welfare, tax breaks, food stamps, Head Start, school lunches, Medicaid, and all that good stuff). Nor do they want women to have easy access to birth control so they don’t get pregnant in the first place.
    The inconsistencies of conservatism.

    But the trouble is that this kind of burglary – the kind most likely to go “wrong” – is now the norm in Britain. In America, it’s called a “hot” burglary – a burglary that takes place when the homeowners are present – or a “home invasion”, which is a much more accurate term. Just over 10 per cent of US burglaries are “hot” burglaries, and in my part of the world it’s statistically insignificant: there is virtually zero chance of a New Hampshire home being broken into while the family are present. But in England and Wales it’s more than 50 per cent and climbing. Which is hardly surprising given the police’s petty, well-publicised pursuit of those citizens who have the impertinence to resist criminals.

    When the criminals know there is little chance that the homeowner is armed it makes all of us an easy target. Even if you don’t own a gun you should be happy that so many Americans do. Many criminals might be dumb, but they are smart enough to know that a TV or a computer isn’t worth being shot or killed.

    In England and other No Gun countries you just need a couple big guys to knock a door down and terrorize your defenseless victims.

    No thanks.

    You know what’s funny is that I can (generally) agree with this argument. But then some people follow it up with “…which is why I need ten semiautomatic rifles, a hundred 30-round magazines and ten thousand rounds of ammunition.”
