I mean I know everyone who owns guns legally is 100% responsible at all times, with the wisdom of Confucius and Ghandi rolled up into one.... but is this really a good idea?

I don't see the big deal.

If someone wants to cause trouble, they will still be able too, gun law or not so I don't understand the big uproar.

The NJ senator is just having a knee jerk reaction...

If someone wants to cause trouble, I'd feel one heck of a lot safer if they didn't have a gun.

It's a great idea to let citizens protect themselves, how many of you have a cop in your hip pocket, the rest of us don't, so that's why self-protection is a necessity.

Everybody's a law-abiding citizen, until the one day they snap.

No guns in airports, schools, athletic events, concerts or bars.

Sorry Mattie, guns are already allowed there. Last time checked this was still the USA and the Constitution is still in effect.

Hmm..funny how the constitution is allowed to change. Maybe they shouldn't be allowed in said places. Like this last push to allow guns on college campuses - are you f****ng kidding me? A place where you should feel safe to voice your opinion and engage in heated discussions, yeah that sounds like a great place for someone to be packin' heat. Give me a break, this is not the 18th century anymore. Sorry but the Constitution was not some sacred document sent here from the heavens. It is not a perfect document.

Are you f***in kidding ME! You said it exactly right, a place where you should feel safe. Why should you feel any safer on a campus than any other place. You sound like another confused quiche eating liberal. Everyone has the right to keep themself safe. That means carying a firearm if they choose. IF a person uses one in an unlawful manner, deal with him. But don't prevent the rest of the citizenry from the ability to defend themselves. You gonna wave your "I should feel safe here" flag at a criminal next time you get robbed. Oh, wait, you can call the police, that's right, they're right over your shoulder, arent they. Wake up.
