Firearms are not dangerous; only the loose nut behind he trigger is dangerous. I own a few handguns. Will I shoot you with one? Sure, if you threaten me, my family, or my property; two in the chest, one in the head, and dead men tell no tales. Act like you're supposed to, and you`ll have no problem with me, or my firearms. A gun is no more dangerous than any other tool; its all in the manner in which it is used.

tuapui-[quote]should be allowed to have whatever dangerous poo they want but must be licensed and certified fit to operate them. Like cars for instance.[/quote] Uh, you do not have to be licensed or certified to purchase/own a car.
SmagBoy1-[quote]NO ONE bitches about people trying to make them safer. [/quote] Is there any need to make a screwdriver safer? A firearm is about as simplistic as you can get. And yes, research continues to make both firearms, and ammunition, safer.
patchouly-[quote]don`t listen to things objectively [/quote] When a liberal shows up to a debate with no facts, no data and no clue, there is no need be objective to call BS. This guy was typical lib: `Feels` over facts.

HumanAction, my apologies. I left this thread and didn't come back last night. On my own analogy, I suppose I`m wrong in that, sure, you can have car keys and no car. So it`s certainly not perfect. However, it`s kind of silly to have car keys and not a car. Car keys don`t do anything without a car, they`re not made to do anything other than in context of a car, they`re not dangerous outside of use with a car. Cars are constantly being analyzed for safety, they`re constantly being upgraded for safety, research is done on them constantly and NO ONE bitches about people trying to make them safer. Also, when people prove they can`t be trusted with cars, their licenses are taken away and then, if they try to get around THAT, they go to jail.
As for the comma, yes, *some* constitutional scholars say it separates the clauses--the same scholars who assert that the 2nd is about guns and not militias.

bah who cares. my country has a ban on firearms and it is working because we have airtight borders. my perspective is that people should be allowed to have whatever dangerous poo they want but must be licensed and certified fit to operate them. Like cars for instance. People die more often from motor accidents than shootings. At least people respect guns enough to not text while shooting.
