    I have a CCW and several fire arms that I carry (not at the same time!). With proper training and education, a person that owns a gun is a lot more safe than most anybody behind the wheel of a car.

    In case anybody is interested, I carry a glock 36 (.45 sub compact baby!) or a 26 (9mm sub compact). I use generic walmart ammo for practice and hydra shok ammo for when I carry.

    I'm referring to properly trained and competent gun owners per the beginning part of my post. A car is a more dangerous weapon was my point

    it's a lot easier for something to go wrong in a car than a gun. Keep finger off the trigger until you're ready to fire and no accidents.

    Moving on though :)

    Fully automatic weapons are illegal, but you can get a special permit for them and it is expensive. You also have to go through an extensive background check.

    I am for concealed weapons and the right to carry firearms.

    BUT...I do think that to carry a concelaed weapon, you must take a gun safety course and carry a license (like a drivers license). Even though I don't carry a weapon with me (other than my multitool), it makes me feel safer ko=nowing that somebody around me is carrying. And the first thing I will do after I buy/rent my first residence will be to go to the store to buy myself a gun.

    My mother is anti-gun because she thinks that if they pass the concealed weapon law, that more crazies are going to get a hold of weapons. I believe that if congress wrote the law correctly, there shouldn't be more psychos with guns. I think there would be less.

    Having the proper permits, an education and stable mind while owning and carrying a gun make me less weary about people owning guns. It's the gangsters, violence addicts, kids trying to look cool, guy/girl who inherited granddads gun and has shot it that one time way back when, that I have a problem with. Insisting that you need a gun simply because you're afraid of the mentally unstable out there who are involved in crime is not totally valid in my eyes unless you take every absolute precaution when aquiring, carrying and owning your gun.

    Agreed. The good thing about gangsters with guns is they can't shoot for crap because they're more interested in holding the gun super cool than aiming. God bless them for that. I'd rather hear about drive bye where nobody got hurt than the latter.
