You call those "liberal Democrat" intentions.....I'd call allot of that common sense. "distance from schools laws".....should we allow hunting in school yards?....."gun range zoning and property taxing,"......Should profit making gun ranges be tax exempt?...Should there be no zoning restrictions? (how about setting up a firing range shooting across a major interstate highway, for the fun of it?)

There are plenty of criminals walking the streets as it is. That they exist in our society is a fact. Giving them easier access to firearms than they already have is not something I want to do.

Why are thay walking around in society? isn't that a problem that needs to be fixed?

I don't care if a guy is walking down the hallway in a school with a 15 shot 9MM if it's in his holster.After all wouldn,t most cops in a school be armed and we trust them.Shouldn't a government trust it's people ?

So am I Paul. I only argue against those who refuse to admit or just don't understand what the NRA really is. They are a gun lobby for the firearms industry. Nothing wrong with that any more than the Insurance industry's lobby, or the Morticians lobby, or the Flower Grower's lobby's watching out for the interests of their industry's in Congress & occasionally providing a public service through education as well. What I argue against is the idea, that many people have, that the NRA is really a Constitutional Rights organization, MAINLY interested in fighting for us gun owners to keep our rights!! They aren't........They are there to make sure that we keep buying products made by & for the firearms industry. You & I understand that Paul, but not everyone does.

Absolutely!! But we also have a few other problems to fix:
1. People need to be kind to each other
2. No more cheating
3. Let's stop all lying
4. No J-walking
5. No more over-eating!
6. Less garbage & more flowers in the world

That's the twist - "crowded" is a relative term. Metro NYC, yes, crowded, difficult to get possession permit. My friends in Iowa (town pop. 3200, one stoplight) have no problem getting ownership permit if they pass background check. Concealed carry requires extra paperwork but it's not flat *out of the question*.

What makes a legally owned gun (or owner) more dangerous in NYC than in Iowa?

Devil505 wrote:So what we do as a society is weigh the usefulness of the "potentially dangerous" thing against it's usefulness to us as a society. The car obviously has a much greater usefulness than danger to us & so does the baseball bat as a sporting device. What is the societal usefulness of a flame thrower, armor piercing ammo or the like??


That's the same as the "needs" argument. The usefulness of guns has nothing to do with owning one; the person holding a gun determines its use, lawful or unlawful. It looks like this is where we disagree.

Legally owned, properly secured, firearms in the hands of a properly trained individual pose no threat to a free society. You can argue the "owner goes nuts" case but that may be a price of living in a free society. If a gun was involved in the "goes nuts" case it only made it _easier_ not avoidable.

Devil505 wrote:When you argue that a flame thrower would be fine in Times Square, you are entitled to your opinion, but WE citizens are entitled to disagree with you & band together & make it illegal to do so.


Conceptual question, conceptual answer. Flame throwers and nukes had nothing to do with the topic of this thread.

This thread has diverged, but it started with "the anti gun lobby is trying to pass a revamped Assault weapons ban". Which is simply not true. No one has citied a specific bill in either house that is doing such.

I actually bought a gun today. The last gun I bought went like this. " Take the gun home and try it. If you like it come back and pay me ". Not so today.

I don't think any of what you just mentioned constitutes a danger to society.Just like ANY firearm,knife,bat,stick,rock or any other thing that can be used as a weapon is a danger to society.But if someone is a danger to society I don't want him or her among us.Period !

The sooner we realize that people(bad people) are the problem and not the weapon the better off we'll be.And the sooner we get those people out of society the safer we'll be.

If we took ALL the guns away from all the honest people the criminals would still get weapons even if they had to make them or steal them from another country.

The problem has always been and will always be bad people and it is NEVER the bullet,gun,bat,stick,rock or knifes fault.It's really that simple.
