The fact of the matter – we HAVE gun control laws – we need to ENFORCE the ones we have!
…and I agree, there are loopholes that need to be closed and things that need to change, but there are a lot of responsible gun owners that shouldn’t be punished because of a few irresponsible or ill intentioned ones

ct2015: 100% agree. We need to enforce the gun control laws that we already have.

Mrs.MilitaryBee: Being in the Army is what actually made me feel the need for stronger gun control. I was on a range once where Soldier accidently shot themselves in the foot with an M16. They of course had all the training, back ground checks and practice and it still happened. Any person off the steet can purchase an AR-15, that doesn’t pass the common sense test.

There are so many of us who are very neutral now in order to avoid upsetting anybody, so I applaud you for being a proud gun owner.

Mrs.MilitaryBee: I am guessing that your FB friend’s comment about the “racial divide” was meant to suggest that crime in your area may be committed disproportionally by minorities. I think she’s claiming that arming yourself against that threat is only going to fan the flames and perpetuate an “us vs. them” mentality.
I’m not a supporter of unrestricted gun rights, in fact the opposite, but I think her comment was borderline racist. There is risk to having guns in the home, but that’s not it.
