    I think there should be tighter dr. control

    A loaded dr. is a dangerous thing

    Gun control is being able to hit your target.

    Guns kill people... that is what they are for.
    Guns kill animals....that is what they are for.

    Guns are used in crime.....threats.....to defend property (with the threat to kill or do serious harm) ....... . that is what they are for.

    That however, is my opinion. I work in a setting where, on occasion I see gunshot wounds, which is not too often, considering where I live, but I do see them. It is a nasty thing to see.

    Please, OH PLEASE, do not drag out that old argument about knives, cars and rope and how they can be used to kill people too! PLEASE, give us more credit than that. I beg you!

    Doctors are people, who make mistakes, but as far as I know, doctors where not DESIGNED or CREATED to kill.

    Hmmmm... must be something wrong with my guns, they have never done any of the above mentioned things.



    in the USA is alive and well.

    Now let's move on to something equally polarizing...abortion or the breastfeeding of 8 year olds.

    Guns are designed to do the things I mentioned, in my opinion.
    The fact yours have not DONE those things, does not mean they won't. I was only pointing out design..... not necessarily intention.

    I have noted in the past, this type of discussion tends to make some people nervous and anxious.

    If you wish to start a debate on the things mentioned, why not start a new thread?

    I am with 2nd careerRN on this one! I would love to tell you some nice hunting stories of places we have been, but maybe another time!! P.S. All of our 23 guns, and 3 handguns have not killed anyone either! Gun safe, double locked and every trigger is locked also.
