You talk about banning guns as if it's some untested and radical move that will completely destroy the country along with all of our freedoms. What you are totally ignoring is that the vast majority of the developed world has guns control and just as much freedom as we have, and in most cases they have a much safer society.

We are losing rights everyday, and your little guns are doing nothing to stop that. If all guns were banned today, very little would change in this country. People would just find less deadly weapons to use, and life would go on. In the long run, we might become a little bit safer country.

But there were guns on the campus at Columbine. Two cops with guns were on the campus, and they exchanged gunfire with the killers, but they were unsuccessful, in stopping them. Two trained professional with guns couldn't stop the massacre. But you think a bunch of less trained amateurs would have had better luck.

They would absolutely have a better chance than un-armed amateurs.

Yeah, right your little guns are preventing that.

Nope, I'm a future criminal because I refuse to abide by these unjust, illegal and unconstitutional laws.

I will not give my children a background check to inherit my firearms. I. WILL. NOT. Do you understand that?

And funny, I own several 30 round magazines, and you know what? I've never killed anyone, nor do I intend to. Contrary to popular belief, they have more than a use to turn you into some kind of cold blooded killing maching.
