You guys just don't get it.

Freedom isn't Free.

If guns are banned, only criminals will have guns.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is for a good guy to have a gun.

Passing more laws is stupid, criminals don't obey laws.

We need guns to defend against the tyranny of our own government.

Just try to take my guns, go ahead, make my day.

"Cell phones and texting are more dangerous than ANY of my guns.. How about waking up to that fact.?"

How many people have been intentionally killed by cell phones and texting?

Self preservation screws with peoples heads, no matter how well trained, from hitting the target if they think the target is actively shooting back at them with the intent to kill.

35 gun deaths in the UK last year

12,000 in the US

Guns are outlawed in the UK

End of debate - for those of us capable of debating.

Yes there is always going to be a gunfight somewhere

1: Be somewhere else

2: Have a gun. A gun that works and you know how to use.

3: A rifle is better than a pistol

4: Bring a friend, have him bring his rifle.

5: Know the difference between cover and concealment

6: Stay behind cover as much as possible.

7: First guy to die, looses.

An effective regulation/law prevents or reduces crime rather than generates a new way to prosecute criminals (although those can be helpful too).

The point of background checks is not to detect and prosecute criminals stupid enough to apply using their real identity. Universal background checks eliminate the simplest way for criminals to get guns. I suspect the next simplest is straw purchases, and while universal background checks won't stop that they would remove the "I sold all ten of them to some dude I met in a bar" defense.

After that, allow prosecutions for negligence when a lost or stolen gun is used in a crime. Rights come with responsibilities, and unless your guns are stolen at gunpoint (impossible, since a good guy with a gun will always stop the bad guy, right?), you were irresponsible. Prosecute a couple of irresponsible owners, buy stock in gun safes and eliminate another easy way for criminals to get guns, all the while not infringing on anyone's right to self defense, or even their imaginary right to plot treason.

Once again, where do you Gun Nuts think criminals get their guns?

When you get angry enough, grab your rifle and run outside. If you're the only one there, it's not time yet.....

TradEddie, thanks for the thoughtful, intelligent response.

Looks like they're closing in.
An officer told The Associated Press it's believed Dorner committed a residential burglary of a cabin and had a couple tied up inside. One person was able to get away and make a call.
If only they were armed this would already be over!
