Response to sarisataka (Reply #31)

95. Betcha shot a lot of deer though.

I realize I didn't make my point very well.

My point was that there are many guns designed for hunting and civilians that hunt and eat what they hunt, I don't have a problem with.
Of course there is the potential for killing people with it too but that isn't what the device is designed for.

But many guns, and rifles of course, are designed for war or law enforcement.
These are designed specifically to kill people but they are used in the protection of others by people, like yourself, who have been professionally trained.

When used in the protection of others they are necessary but I don't think it wise for this type of weapon to be freely available to the general public.

By the way, I hate war but I realize the necessity of protection so I have nothing but respect for both our Armed Forces and Law Enforcement when they are honorable and do their job properly as in most cases I'm sure they do.
