go read the scotus arguements. the cops are there for the general protection of the public. they do not have to stop crime for any individual at all.

I believe only certain people should have guns too.

every person who is not in the civilian arms of the state and federal government, no LEOs and no FLEAs at all should be allowed to have and use any firearms at all.

better that the people protect themselves, than having to have a cop nearby and just stand there. because cops do not have to answer any 911 call or protect any person at all.

You are approx 10,000 X more likely to save your child's life by learning CPR and the Heimlich maneuver than you are by having a gun in the house.

Your child is approx 5000X more likely to be killed by your gun than they are to be protected by it.

My daughter knows not to touch my guns. She has her own.


I guess it is all about parenting and how your raised. Some are not meant to have guns, because their parents have handicapped them physiologically and with ignorance.

This is a tired and dried out argument. My son has been shooting since he was old enough to operate a weapon unassisted. He has been shooting competitively since he was 10. At 17, now, he is a Grand Master class shooter, and I can't beat him. Neither can a lot of other seasoned competitors. A friend of his shoots for Team Smith &Wesson. She is 16, is maybe 5'you tall and 90I #s soaking wet in work boots. And she is perfectly polished, and a real treat to watch on the range. There are a lot more kids like this, out here, than I think you care to know about. It blows your argument out of the water.
Oh! And wonder, of wonders, these kids use AR 15s , shotguns, and hi cap handguns to compete. Funny, how these vicious weapons have not turned on them yet. . Once again, this narrow and biased view of the shooting community makes statements like your look VERY foolish. Educate yourself. Go see a competition. Talk to the folks. See what the shooting community is REALLY like. Tben get back to me.

This "Refresh1" person is clearly a troll who is deliberately playing dumb, mouthing the most ignorant-sounding absurdities he can think up, maybe to get incredulous reactions (like the ones he's getting). He throws in random misspellings to heighten the illusion of a terminally dumb bunny.

I wasn't sure for a while. But nobody could possibly be as ignorant and unthinking as "Refresh1" is portraying here.

Interesting act. But what's the point?
I believe that only certain people should have guns. Not that guns are bad. The right people with certain beliefs should have them.
I rest my case.

I'm pretty sure I know where you pulled those numbers out of.
