Virginia Tech

There’s about to be a big debate, so here’s my two cents worth.

“What is the militia?  It is the whole people.  To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” – George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights)

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” – Thomas Jefferson

You’ve probably seen the bumper sticker that says “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns”.  Now you have proof that the framers had that opinion too.

    Although what you say does make some sense, I think more stringent psychological screening by professionals ahead of issuing of the right to purchase the gun may prevent more killers like Cho from mass murder.

    Prolonging a mandatory delay to screen the applicant by the police and mental health experts is a better way than just allowing anyone to get a lethal weapon.

    [Privatestock says: Thanks for commenting, Tech. Cho bought his first gun 5 weeks before he used it to kill people. The waiting period is stupid. And making it harder for responsible people to get guns won’t make the situation better. People who use guns for murder often didn’t get the gun legally.

    If you want illegal drugs, they’re pretty easy to get. If you want to enter the country illegally, that’s pretty easy too. What makes anyone think people won’t be able to get guns if they’re illegal? All gun laws do is stop the good guys from being able to defend themselves. If one other person in that building had had a gun, a lot less people would have died.]

    by means of him as nobody else recognise such distinct approximately
    my difficulty. You’re wonderful! Thanks!
