This got me thinking.
I don't usually like to start political discussions on here, but this is one i feel rather strongly about.
Guns are cool. They are loud and go band and i'd love to go to a firing range and blast a few rounds off. But i don't want one for myself, and i frankly i don't want ones for anyone else.
war games are fun, but i'm rational enough to recognize they are just games. maybe that should qualify me to own a gun. someone recently asked me if i was going to get one "now that i have a family." i was a little appalled.
it's been my experience that the people i know that own guns, or a least want them, and the ones who need them the least. that is to say, they are poor candidates for gun ownership- rash, irresponsible, stupid.
so what do we say? i lean very liberal here- i feel gun laws should be even more stringent, and don't necessarily feel the 2nd amendment is appros for the modern world. what say you?
