    100,000 people shot in the USA every year. How many were by a good guy with a gun saving lives?

    So you want legislation? OK, give us something you think will work besides turning your home into a fortress.

    A good start would be enforcing the laws already on the books.

    Of course, no matter what I post, you will just drag the goal post a little further.

    I am glad you dragged it close: good on you.

    What other laws are needed, if any, iyo?

    None, unless and until the laws ALREADY ON THE BOOKS are enforced.

    Then you have no further credibility and will be ignored here by me.

    You don't respect or defend freedom you advocate the removal of rights you don't like because you are afraid and a coward. I and every American have a CONSTITUTIONAL protected RIGHT to own possess and carry firearms. You want that right removed because a fraction of a fraction of the population abuse that right. Meanwhile you ignore others that abuse their rights in greater numbers because you don't care about freedom you just want to take away rights you disagree with. Well I am sorry but until you pass an amendment the 2nd IS in fact the LAW of the land and all your whining and prattling on does not change that.
