General Off-Topic Board / Re: Second Amendment Debate- What does the "right to bear arms" really mean?« on: March 19, 2008, 05:06:08 PM »
A lot of people seem to be missing the point about the gun control debate.Agreed but we must also consider the criminal minded who will purchase weapons to commit violations of law, and that is where my interpretation may help.
First, I don't buy guns to defend my house from criminals I buy guns because I love to hunt, and I love to shoot guns. I'm a good guy. Don't take away my recreation, please!
Second, enforcement should be the key issue. Drugs are illegal, and because they are illegal BAD people sell them. If Guns are Illegal BAD people will sell them. Honestly, would a law abiding citizen really go buy a gun in a back alley from a gang member if they can just go down to a sporting goods store?
Make guns illegal and it will create a huge black market for weapons. Gun dealers will go from retail store employees with background checks, to rapists and murders who throw in a case of hollow-point shells when you buy a piece from the trunk of their 1985 cadillac.
