Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
Steve... I do know 'there are millions of responsible gun owners out there'. I also know that under certain circumstances, it can be reasonable for some of the 'responsible' ones to own 'some' types of weapons. But even you no doubt realize that everyone in YOUR area is either NOT responsible, or, if they ARE honest, law-abiding folks, are not all competent to own and use firearms. Even *I*, living where I do, know that there are dangerous people in my neighborhood....but I can't see how my having a gun or two would make me safer.
   We need ways to sort out this situation. YOU can't go riding about, protecting all those who can't be trusted with a gun..... how do we solve this? It's not just philosophical needs a practical solution.
