Im bran new to the site, first of all its a nice change of pace to the usuall internet communities (i.e. facebook) im obviously conservative, and I belive in gun and gun carry rights, I have personally had to pull my weapon 3 times in the past year and half, I work in a enviroment that puts me in situations to make very bad people very angry and there have been times I come into contact off the job. Of those three times 2 were close to home - within a hundred feet or so- I dont belive that a politican should take that ability to protect myself, my family, and the general public when the worst situation they have ever been in was that there was nothing on tv one day, boo hoo. I have been to astraila and great britain and witness how there great gun control is coming, I still have a paper form branbury where there was a shooting and home invasion on the back page, im no road scholar but seeing how we still run things of that sort on the front over here it would seem that gun violence is more prevalent and thus more of a problem over there, if you do the math on the reports of gun violence and then figure half of crimes go unreported and convert the number to percent based on population so as to eleminate the fact that there are 12 times as many people over here then you would find there are much more issues in these "gunless" contries than our own, I mean if the police arnt even armed how detured would you be to go rob a bank or settle an old score.
Now that im done ranting, good evening to you all and be safe out there.
Im just doin what I can with what I got.- burt gummer
