    I hate when people are so gung-ho about one certain value, and so gung-ho about a completely contradictory value as well.

    While I certainly don’t agree that pro-gun = pro-murder, the perspective I always take is that guns precipitate violence. Using the aforementioned joked as an example, if the husband comes home early and all that’s lying around is a baseball bat, it’s unlikely anyone’s going to die. If there’s a handgun readily available, the chances of death increase dramatically.

    A fancy club it may be when unloaded, but my biggest concern is that it’s not altogether too difficult to acquire bullets or the club itself. I don’t think guns should be completely outlawed, but excessively tight restrictions would be nice at least.

    Dan,

    I can see your point. I don’t think just anybody should be able to walk into the store and purchase a gun. And I don’t know enough to go into the policy that should be behind who can and can’t purchase guns.

    You get the idea. A gun isn’t going to walk up to anybody and shoot them. No, that takes another person.

    I make no secret that I’m vehemently opposed to abortion. Yet I don’t advocate banning the possession of vacuum cleaners.

    Alex takes his (or her) politics at about the depth of a bumper sticker, no more.

    If someone is quick enough to anger to consider using a firearm in a situation that does not warrant it chances are they are going to go to the extreme using a “non-lethal” weapon such as a bat. Great Britain is having a huge problem with knife violence. As for purchasing a firearm it depends on the state as far as waiting periods and such go. Felons are automatically dis-qualified. In most states you must be 21 years of age or older to purchase a handgun, and most states require a 5 day or greater wait period unless you have your CPL (concealed pistol license) But you hit the nail on the head with this post K.
