It would be nice if there were no guns, but there are. Criminals will not obey laws. There is no way to stop guns fro being used by criminals or being obtained by them. Illegal drugs get here and guns will get here the same way. LAWs don't work on people that ignore LAW! The right to keep and bear arms must be protected for all people and ownership must have requirement of training. As an elderly Veteran I can say that the comment that the person with a gun is looking to use it is wrong for most, but not wrong for people with a mental problem. After having served in the military, I have no desire to use a weapon, but I support the 2nd Amendment Right. I'm elderly and disabled and cannot afford the expensive hobby of guns since I like eating better. I believe that all my American Legion friends are worthy of and responsible with that right. There are many criminals that abuse the right and are worthy of nothing. Laws will not affect the criminals, only those that might save you or your children if they are armed.
