The Goofballs in the anti-gun lobby really need to get a grip on some thing besides their privates. The right of gun ownership is written into the Constitution. Its purporse is dual. In the parlous times in which the Constitution was written, weapons in the hands of the citizenry provided a ready source of men-at-arms in the event of a foreign power invading the U.S. It also provided the citizenry the means of discouraging a government bent on stripping U.S. citizens of their rights. The Goofballs on both sides of the issue seem to have forgotten that with freedom comes responsibility. Guns ownership and use, because of the potentially deadly consequences of gun use, entails a heavy resposnsibility. If one is unable to bear that responsibility they have no business owning, let alone using, a gun. The Goofballs in the pro-gun lobby need to get over their fascination with automatic weapons. You don't need to use an AK-47 on full auto to take down a deer. I've taken my fair share of big game with a Remington Model 700 .270 rifle. With a 180grain Winchester Silver-tip it's one shot...one kill. Besides you ventilate the deer too much you just ruin the meat. And an Ingram MAC-10 is useless for squirrel hunting, especially if you want to eat it after you kill it. Guns don't kill people. Idiots with guns in their hands do. These blanket lawsuits against gun manufacturers miss the mark. It ignores the responsiblity of the individuals who use guns in the commission of crimes. By the same token, ballistic fingerprints of guns do not infringe on the right to keep and bear arms. It does make it easier to follow the chain of custody for weapons used in the commision of a crime, and to the perpetrator of those crimes.
