Now here is something that bothers me and I know has been discussed a few times. I have a problem with gun control and all these liberal politicians and how they plan on getting tougher on guns and gun laws.
Here is my major problem, when you toughen up on gun control all you really do is take gun's out of the honest citizens hands. Do liberals really think that criminals walk in to your local gun shop and attempt to legally obtain a handgun? As a polic officer in the state of New Jersey it took me 11 weeks to be approved to buy my off duty weapon even though I already carry a department issued weapon. Now if I'm a criminal all I have to do is know someone who knows someone and bang I have a gun.
I guess what I'm asking from the liberal base on this board is to explain to me why you believe so heavily in taking gun's out of the honest citizens hands when the criminal element will always have same day access to a gun. On a whole where gun control isn't as strict(i.e. Texas) violent crime is lower. On the flipside in states where control is tight there is much mre gun related violence(i.e Cali, NY and NJ).
