    I think they're about right. Determined individuals will not be deterred by "laws" and I don't think it's fair to restrict what the majority is allowed to do based on a few impulsive people who don't think things through. That's like denying me my McD's chocolate shake because there are some obese people who can't say no.

    I think that because each state has different laws some of them are good others need some revamping but over all I think that they are doing an ok job but I do think the penalty for gun crimes needs to be harsher

    I think that "debate" has been abandoned. Damn you for bringing reason into a debate

    It's so much easier to blame suicide on the tool than the person though! Don't ruin it Linds!

    Razorblades are lethal too then. Shall we start regulating those better because some people use them to cut or slit wrists?

    Cars kill more people than guns in the US every year don't they?

    Considering I just got a call this morning that a lady I used to work with was killed by her husband, I think the laws can always be stricter.
