    Many, many more. And more than that, even, if you keep trying to take them.

    Yep. Those mean nasty terrible awful wicked evil guns just killed another innocent victim—unless, of course, the actual killer was yet another criminal who's been paroled and put on probation time after time.

    Bets, anyone?

    I wonder how the author would explain the fact that in Maine, for example, you may carry a weapon without a permit, and that particular state has one of the lowest crime rates in the country. At the same time, in Washington D.C. it is illegal to own a weapon and it has one of (excuse me, THE) highest rate of murder in the country.

    Where's the author? I'd like to ask him that question.

    WOT!!??? Come on now! If indeed he meant spent bullets then the guys shooting were doing gun owners no favors - would have to be fair on that point.

    But oh my - the classic anti's rhetoric makes up most of the snivelling content. He forgets as do most - the guns are in bad guy's hands when things go wrong - if he can find a way to specifically target those then he might be achieving something.

    Until such time - he'd better remember that he is citing minority instances and totally forgetting about the monster majority of sane responsible folks - who both have a constitutional right to have their guns and who have their right to an ability to self defence - not that he'd think that counted for anything.

    Oh well - gut emotions once more rule the day and logic takes another step backward. :(

    Dear Mr. Rouse:

    Regarding your article: How many more will die before guns are controlled?

    There is probably little point in persuading you to read the original writings of our Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. Even less, I suspect, of the history of arms, wars, governments and democracy. Your ignorance is worn like a badge you seem to be proud of.

    Your love affair with controlling your neighbor is sick, sick, sick.
    Okay, dunno if he's talking about empty cases, or bullets (didn't the Army teach you the difference between a "spent cartridge" and a bullet?). If they were putting rounds into a residential area, I doubt the police would have simply told them to leave.
    Different strokes for different folks. It's called freedom.
    You're crying to us about all the violence in the US, then you're crying there is no reason for anybody to have defensive tools. :rolleyes:
    Yes, they are crazy ideas. They are completely unfounded in reality, and demonstrate an irrational opinion of Republicans and Christians. Furthermore, I guess you haven't been paying attention to the CCW trend across the nation for the last few years. Your crazy fears have been repeatedly spouted by like minded fools, and repeatedly discredited by the reality of responsible carry, as all the states with conceal carry have discovered.
    So why the hell did you come back?

    What a load of BS.

    Molon labe.

    But I doubt he has the stones to try it. Like all other Marxist tyrants he would rather delegate the actual fighting and pillaging to rank and file wage slaves, while comfortably sitting in his living room sipping wine.

    He should be sent to Cuba. To the nice vacation resort built on federal property where every tourist gets a koran, froot loops for breakfast, and complimentary lap dances, rap music, and free panties.

    It should be his socialist version of utopia. No firearms except in the hands of government, free health care, free housing, free food, and he can play naked twister with other men and not be called names for it.

    What a Maroon!

    A maroon not even worth the fine arguments for RKBA espoused here on THR.

    Someone should probably check the tension on that ejection spring. You'll put an eye out at 1000 yards... :D

    I'd hate to see what this guy has to say about cars and trucks that hold auto accidents at first place for cause of death in America. This guy is sick sick sick.
    Perhaps he wants to ban guns so only real criminals will own, carry and deal them on our streets while doing and dealing drugs. We have a right to protect our selves from these criminals he gives examples of. There are crazies out there .

    Ignorant, irrational bedwetter.

    Why bother replying? To do so seems to be somewhere in the realm of teaching pigs to sing.


    (For those who don't know - it only frustrates you and annoys the pig)

    Don't you know that the "right" to an abortion was written into the Constitution by the founding fathers? Where have you been? :rolleyes:

    But firearms? There's definatly no mention of owning them in the Constitution. Not like the language specifically, explicitly, and plainly spelling out the "right" to abortion.

    Hi All-
    Why bother trying to have an intelligent conversation about FACTS with someone who won't even bother to check their spelling on simple words like "nostrils" in their stories?
