quote:Why should anyone, even a stable person, have to own a gun? There are two main reasons to own a gun (and a sexually perverted one ): shooting at cans, target practice etc, and threatening or actually shooting people. The target practice can be done on a shooting range, were there's supervision and professionals checking everything. Outside that range, you shouldn't be allowed to carry a gun! It's very simple!
reason one, I live in a sparsly populated area, The nearest big city is over 300 miles away. 75% of the people in my area depend on hunting for their food supply. I myself am not a hunter. I do however own guns. And I do have concealed weapons permit, because I go on business trips to not so clean areas sometimes. If some guy tried to rape me, I would use my gun. Sure we can all wish that there were no guns but c'mon this is the real world. If they banned guns it wouldn't make a diffrence one bit. Drugs are illegal and they are a bigger problem over all than guns are. I'm no nra activist, but being a woman, I do have the right to protect myself from the scum of society.
