My belief on gun laws was best expressed by Archie Bunker. When his daughter pointed out how many people had been killed by guns in the last year, Archie's response was "Would it make you feel any better if they'd been pushed out of windows?" classic

Agree that we have foundational problems inhibiting utopia. There's blame to go around everywhere - starts with the family and values....or lack thereof as fertile ground for crime.

@dantesdad..thanks for your comment..I feel that's about 100 Bitstrips worth of material there...just trying to cover one topic at a time...I love the discussions...stay tuned.

The real issue is crime. The real solution is jobs, education and a healthier economy. It's all well and good to protect the right to bear arms, but if you turn a blind eye to the underlying societal problems that affect the level of violent crime, you aren't really helping to make a better America, now are you? Conservative governance can't reasonably be put forth as a way to raise up the lower classes and give them jobs and hope for the future... Heck - conservative governance has made us the world leader at incarcerating our own citizens!

@dwf..ha ha....yes..I'm all about the permits, training, gun safes..and don't mix with alcohol! Go music teacher! Save some innocent lives!

Metal Detectors. Why, so that kids can get used to the fact that they can be strip-searched at any time? The truth is, I think responsible people ABSOLUTELY should get the permits to carry. Troubled Johnny can try going on a school rampage then! Wait'll he finds out his music teacher isn't afraid to put a cap in his @$$!

@dwf..that would be a nice fantasy..to get rid of all guns..but reality..they're there! I also wanted to say..in Gun Free Zones..I am COOL with it IF there are metal detectors!! IE..in schools...let's see the metal detectors!! Gun free..means gun free..lets make sure of it!

What's the point? The point is guns are inherently EVIL! Don't you see that?! Why, in the few days that a handgun has been available on Bitstrips, Uzi alone has been killed at least a dozen times. It's just. so. sad. I say, melt down all the guns and make smiley pins out of them :-)

@Vi - having trouble following your logic. What she's talking about has nothing to do with suicide. The cause of a "justifiable homicide" is a thwarted murder - thus "justified". I don't call that a tradeoff. If someone tried to kill you would you want the option to defend yourself "justifiably"?

On the other hand, 50% of handgun deaths are suicides. How many of the others are justifiable homicides? How many robberies or rapes are prevented, compared to these deaths? Everything involves trade-offs.

Of course I believe get your permit, take a class, get a gun safe..then you're good to go:).

I agree. If you want to break the law you will. The law should support those that want to follow the law. I prefer to have those that want to carry get a permit and carry. I can then be prepared if I need to cap a bad guy!
