    If Obama and Reid and all the clowns in Congress and Government get to protect themselves, their property, their families, and stand their ground, armed to the teeth, than so should you and I have that ability.

    That is a good argument for most handguns and shotguns, but it doesn't address military style weapons with high capacity magazines. I am not a gun control nut, but I wonder if some reasonable middle ground exists?

    If people in the Government can protect themselves with high capacity magazines and automatic weapons, so should I.

    Besides that, having a Government that kills innocent people (children) with bombs on the regular tell me that I am too irresponsible to have a gun is the peak of hypocrisy.

    Yes. I think that if someone has paid their punishment in prison or restitution or whatever the agreement was that they should retain the full rights of a human being when they are released. Plus, even if I said no, if they want a weapon they will get one anyway. Laws only hamper the law abiding citizens, criminals live as if the law didn't exist already.

    Yes. Even Nukes. Listen, most people, like myself, aren't going to be using napalm on folks. Granted there are some people who will, many of which you probably voted for at one point or another, but that doesn't mean we need to keep it out of everyone's hands and only in the hands of people proven to use things like napalm and nuclear weapons. I can look up how to make either of those right now and if I had the means acquire the weapons and make them. My point is that you a) aren't stopping criminals and b) are letting proven murderers keep their arsenal and finally c) restricting all people's liberty isn't going to fix the morality problems of some

    I was just gonna ask the same thing. Gun owners go along with banning guns to some criminals but not others. Martha Stewart is a felon while most convicted drunk drivers are not. And yet which showed more disregard for human life.
