Strollin' Johnny BS: Gun control (297* d) RE: BS: Gun control 29 Apr 07

No problem Kendall - I have occasionally been known to over-react myself! LOL!

I truly do understand the arguments for allowing guns, and I can see that there's a certain comfort-blanket value to having one, I just believe that being 'safer' packing a gun is a matter of perception rather than fact - 12,000 homicides by shooting per annum are pretty strong proof of that. In truth, EVERYBODY (that's emphasis, not shouting BTW!) would be far 'safer' if there were NO guns.

And yes, I'm sure you're right that the bad-guys will hold on to their weapons while the good-guys hand 'em in, but I just can't help feeling that 'we have to start somewhere'. It's difficult but, if people in days gone by had allowed difficulty to prevent them taking great steps, Columbus would never have discovered America, and man would not have walked on the moon! :-)

Cheers fella, and good wishes to your lady.
