RIPBiker13 Call 911 = 20min

Shoot them = .88sec

timberspirit04 A gun is the only thing I can think of that will put a 80 year old person on the same playing field as a 200 pound 18 year old attacker. If there were no guns in the world a young man or woman in the best shape they could be in would able to inflict much more damage to another than your 80 year old grandmother. Just my 2 cents.

Jaxs1stJeep Do you know when your life is put in danger?

Could you tell when your Mother's, Father's, Brother's, Sister's, Wife's, Husband's, Child's life was in danger?

I bet you could.

If the threat was from another person threatening your or their lives'; would you want to yell at them and say you're calling 911?

Or would you rather have a gun on your hip, be able to draw it, and stop the person?

The only one that can be there 24/7 365 is you. Your mother can not protect you, The cops can not protect you. The government can not protect you and it's a dangerous world out there.

I wish they'd do some friggin' thing instead of warehouse these losers.

ccain Yeah... Nothing will be solved by the implementation of nationwide gun control. In fact, things will probably get worse. It will only open a venue for people from outside the country to make even more money from illegal firearms! And more violent crime to help pay for the guns.


How about taking the money from useless programs and using it to hire, equip and train police officers and implement stiffer penalties for criminals? Use the death penalty.

Joe Dirt People fall into one of three categories; wolves (the preditors), sheep (the victims) and sheepdogs (the protectors). Pick which one you want to be or the wolves will pick for you. I'm a LEO in CA. Our gun laws are tuff. Despite this, we have huge numbers of gun related crimes. Gun control only keeps law abiding citizens from getting guns.

KicknJeep me I'm all for gun control.......

RIPBiker13 Ok yeah, he did cut them off, but that was excuse to act like that. they were still wrong.
02-19-2008 11:02 PM
Dare2BSquare But he cut them off.

You guys know the people who drive european cars are all uppity uppity schmucks. They should have stood up to him and seen if he had the balls to use the gun.
02-19-2008 10:59 PM
RIPBiker13 That was AWESOME! Good for him! He tried to get away from the guys and they harassed him and followed him. However, he was wrong to take the camera, he should have just taken the tape as evidence. But he was justified in drawing a weapon on the guy with the bat. Had that man not had a gun, things might have been VERY bad for them.

What would be your arguments for and for not being able to carry firearms or be in the possession of firearms (LEO officers exempt).

Again, let me reiterate, I am no for or against gun control. I am just curious. This wont be the only If this, than that thread.
Um - the real world is dangerous. People try to victimize and kill each other with surprising regularity. Personally owned firerarms are about the best insurance from victimization you can have. The police and military cannot protect most of the people most of the time - I know. Trust me. Your personal protection is your personal responsibility, and your personal right. No government should think they "give" that right to you, or have the ability to take it away (as long as you are playing nice within our society). It's pretty simple. If bad guys can get guns (and they can), then good guys should have them.

X2!

Even if guns were banned, I can assure I would still have at least one hidden somewhere ready and waiting.

Our founding fathers knew this and that is why it does exist and why we should make sure it continues to exist.
