@AJ: Mexican drug cartels get their guns from border states like Texas.

@Prussia'sFool Not true (excepting, of course, the ones that Eric Holder sold them in a pernicious attempt to promote violence and murder of innocent Mexicans so as to justify further restricting our rights under the 2nd Amendment). Most of the guns used by criminals in Mexico come up through Central America.

Just out of interest, does anybody know of a serious politician or pressure group seeking to ban all privately held guns?

Yes, a many elected Democrats would love to ban private gun ownership. However, they know they can't actually do it in one fell swoop, so they push their agenda incrementally.

First they want registration of handguns, and then all firearms. Next they want to ban private sales, and then start putting licensed dealers out of business. Next they will ban so-called assault rifles (ugly guns), then semi-automatic pistols, then semi-auto rifles and shotguns, then all handguns, then any firearm that doesn't have a "sporting purpose," (as if the 2nd amendment was adopted to guarantee our right to keep and bear sporting goods), and finally they'll confiscate all firearms -- at least all those that people were stupid enough to register.

Just don't expect them to have the intellectual honesty to tell you that up front.

ive asked twice and got no response. if there is a gun ban and all the law abiding citizens turn in their guns, how do they protect themselves from criminals still in possession of handguns?

They don't.

Hey, at least you got a response.

This is one of them many more if you look. Politicians know they can do it outright all at once so they go about it laws by law until they get what they want.

Just out of interest, does anybody know of a serious politician or pressure group seeking to ban all privately held guns? Or, vice versa, seeking to remove all regulation?

If not then surely the debate is about the details of gun control, not the principle

That sheriff shot back at them and bought alot of people time not making a good case on that one.

Well, 10 people were already dead when he finally got there, and since he wasn't wearing his glasses he couldn't hit a barn door with his gun. He did manage to buy one injured student time to get away, but he only fired 4 shots before the shooter went back inside. To say he bought many time to escape is incorrect.

There was also a sheriff at Columbine the day Klebold and Harris carried out their massacre.

Notice not one source of this story mentions the legality of the gun used. MSN was pushing this down peoples throats all weekend and they're going to keep doing it everytime something with a gun happens. Nope that's not an agenda there.....

Yet, overall murders by guns are at their lowest point in 10+ years.

@FoolsPrussia Yet the guns they get are illegal in the US. Your point?

@MattPrince

Actually it still kind of is. AMD, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Apple, and Google are all very heavy driving forces behind the tech industry.

@Listypoos People need to realize it's the same story with the 'assault rifles' too. The AR15 has been on the market since the 60s, I believe.

Alright, these shootings become more and more frequent, and there has been no change in gun regulation recently. I think it's time I grab my tinfoil hat.

There were over 19,000 deaths by accidental drug overdose in 2004. The majority of these deaths were from prescription drugs, not illegal drugs. Banning prescription drugs makes as much sense as banning guns

According to Dr. Gary Kleck, criminologist at Florida State University in Tallahassee and author of "Point Blank: Guns and Violence in America," a book used by many in the gun debate, 800,000-2,500,000 crimes are stopped by guns each year.

@Fools: fair point, but can you please address my earlier question? "So lets assume we ban all guns, only law abiding citizens will abide by the law; therefore, law abiding citizens will be defenseless and criminals will be the only ones left with guns. Who is in control now?"

"A random hostage situation does not a downfall make. "

Agreed, my point was that, despite being involved at some point with all the processes and hardware involved in this posting, the USA is no longer essential to it.

Interesting opportunity to brush up on the history of electrical power distribution. Tesla was certainly pivotal.

@wzntme1776: The gun free zone argument is ridiculous. There was a private citizen with a gun at the Giffords shooting, and he was unable to stop Loughner. There was also a sheriff at Columbine the day Klebold and Harris carried out their massacre.

@Fools: You just confirmed the point that just because you make them illegal doesnt mean criminals wont find a way to get them, i.e. meth, cocaine, heroine, alcohol during prohibition, et al.

'Gun Free Zones' (like they have at schools) only serve to tell criminals, "Hey, if you come in with a gun there is nothing we can do to stop you!"
