How has this discussion about guns devolved into a debate about smoking? I don't know about you but I haven't killed anyone with my second hand bullets! The problem here is that criminals don't respect gun laws. The only thing you accomplish by banning guns is that lawful people can no longer obtain them. I haven't met one single person who had a felony that obtained their guns legally. I live in the most violent city in the United States (FBI statistics 2011) and personally I would be terrified to live where I live without a gun nearby! An armed criminal just robbed a store not even a quarter mile from me today. He wasn't apprehended and was last seen in my neighborhood. I would be personally terrified if I weren't sitting here armed right now! But anyways that is just my opinion of things from where I stand.
