    I'm curious how people with mental issues (and by that I mean they are under doctor supervision, not someone going PMS ) manage to get guns REGISTERED on their name. Isn't there a rule you have to provide the proof you are stable and all? I may be wrong, just from what I read while back.

    KV - That varies from state to state. In ND there is no waiting period to get a gun. As long as you have IDs you can buy one and take it home with you that day. Major, major hunting state here. We, personally, own more guns than there are people in the house. And that is including our children.

    Wow, just wow.

    As a fifteen year veteran cop, I find this comment almost too offensive to risk commenting on. I have spent too many hours breaking up violent fights, separating violent domestic violence combatants, tackling drug dealers, for ANYONE to tell me we don't protect anyone. I got between a man stabbing another at great risk to myself. Even so, the victim had two stab wounds. He lived, but without my intervention he would have been DRT (dead right there).

    Hitler created modern gun control and registration schemes. Get all the guns registered to make the sheep safe, of course that made it easy just to go round up everyone. Gun control worked well for the Jews.
    I like owning many weapons, but I have all of mine registered. You can rant all you want but there are a LOT of people I don't want to see owning guns.

    I very proudly own guns. I will allways own guns. When I turn 21 I will have a concealed license.

    The as long as there are people there will be weapons. And there will be criminals. I pray I never have to use a gun on a person, but when it comes down to me, a female, being home alone and someone breaks in I want to be able to have a chance at protecting myself.

    In most cases a gun will scare an intruder away. If not the sight, then tbe soumd of a warning shot. If he is still persiztant, then disabling him with a shot to the leg is next best.

    Now if I didnt have a gun in that situation what would happen? Woild I be robbed? Raped? Murdered?

    I'd rather not find out.

    There are bad people here just like there are everywhere. We have gangs that come in all shapes, sizes and colors. That's about it, as far as what your visual reminds me of, Spyder. To say that's how America looks to you in general is pretty dilusional, I don't see that at all. Yes, I am a citizen and I do own a gun, but not owning one is not going to make this world a better place. Maybe if we all had the same idea at the same time and actually followed through on it. But how realistic is that?

    I don't know a single person, other than the police, that carries a gun around on a daily basis for protection. Our country is not THAT dangerous. As far as protecting my children in MY home if some psycho randomly chooses my house to rob, or me or my children to rape, you better believe I'm proud to own that gun.

    Not owning a gun just because the world SHOULDN'T be as violent as it IS, really doesn't do you a whole lot of good. That's crazy Obama talk right there.

    I own 7 guns. They are used for hunting, skeet shooting, getting rid of groundhogs & coyotes. My favorite gun activity is shooting clays off of my horse with my 20 gauge Benelli semi-auto (ear plugs for both of us of course)

    Don't have any plans to ever aim or fire at another person but if it was to protect my life or that of my family, I'd not hesitate.

    I have no problem with private citizens owning guns but I also have no problem with stricter gun control. Simply because I don't think everyone should own one.

    Oh, I see. I was told you have to apply for license and all, but the person who said so probably just meant MD. I never applied/bought, so don't know the whole procedure.

    I owned police pepper spray when I was living in NYC. Does it count as "gun" or at least "weapon"?

    If guns were illegal then only the criminals would have them.

    It wasn't but a couple months ago that a neighbor's home was broken into and the wife was at home. Thankfully they were a good gun toting family and she was able to meet them at gun point. They ran and the cops caught them after that. But what would have happened if she didn't have her gun?

    A lot of people carry around here but you don't even know it because its conceal carry. Its not like folks are walking around the streets waving their guns around in everyone's face. Likely hood is you will never need to use it to defend yourself, but I would much rather have one and not need it then not have one and need it.

    I love to shoot skeet but off your horse?! Now that sounds like a good time
