Very Touchy Subject I see. I can't resist tossing my 2 cents in.
Having done my Army service and as a continued gun owner after that service I feel ALL citizens Male and Female NO exceptions. Should serve in their respective countries military. Said service does 2 things. Instills a basic respect for your country and it's just something I feel each citizen needs to fulfill. Second it makes you familiar with Weapons in all shapes and sizes and the respect all weapons are due. Safe handling of, Cleaning, Storage, That alone will do away with all the namby pamby bullshit we currently see from people to stupid to know what end the flipping bullets come from.
I truly wish this was a carry state as it would have prevented the last few massacres like the one in San Bernardino California last year if just one gun toting citizen had been armed and could have fired back at the perp.
I've talked about this with my friends in carry states like Arizona and he says it'll would not happen there as the perp would only get off a couple of shots before 6 armed members of the law abiding public blew him out the back wall with their own guns. Simply to many nut cases and not enough armed folks. As we pack more people onto this small rock we all get a little more crazy. They get cases like that but it never makes national or international news as it's not sensational enough to have 6 members of the public shoot a nut case holding up a liquor store. Slanted the wrong way for..... Never mind. I'm old and I've live long enough to tell when the wool is being pulled.
Now this state wants me to surrender my (high capacity gun magazine clips) What you'll permit single shot bolt action long guns only next and then no guns at all ?? Yepp FU !! Where have I seen this scenario before?
Do you really trust your government further then you can throw it ?
I'll put my soap box away now. LOL
