I am way more concerned about the millions of people, actually having guns at their hips or in their homes all the time ..... as I would be scared by bears in their habitat.

Well, that is silly. Many folks hunt and many folks feel they need a gun to protect their family, pets and/or livestock.

If you aren't into guns, don't buy one but for those of us who enjoy hunting and/or target practice, your attitude is unfounded.

I have a friend who was very fortunate, indeed, to have staved off a coyote attack on her dog due to having a shotgun at her disposal.

I am sure, there are many folks, who need guns for that. but I am also convinced, the majority of gun owners have them 'just for fun'.

in my neighborhood every second family owns some kind of gun - and all we have (here in flat delaware) are bunny rabbits.

nothing wrong with guns, if you need the to protect family and property. that's not what I meant

Here's another one that's scared of two pounds of steel being in someones home. If that's the case.. then you really must be totally petrified to death of 2,000 pounds of automobile, let alone a bus or big truck!

My two pounds of steel has NEVER injured/killed anyone. Can't say the same for Senator Kennedy's 2,000 pound automobile though!
