It's nice to have a plagarist as a friend. They don't mind so much when you rip them off.

Omega,I assure you the ifnromation I've given you on Obama is correct. There is a lot of misinformation out there that might lead one to believe that he supports the 2nd.For example-A group called the American Sportsmen and Hunters Association say Obama is for the 2nd. This group is a known front group associated with the Brady foundation. You've probably even heard their radio commercial.You should be very wary of anyone that proposes or supports any type of registration or licensing. It's a slippery slope and many many groups of people throughout history have learned that lesson the hard, tragic way. You as a history teacher know that well, many groups of people have suffered when the means to defend themselves was restricted or taken away. A prime example is the Jewish people living in Germany just prior to and during WWII.As to only police officers having guns that in itself would be incredibly dangerous. While there are many great cops in the world and I know a lot of them, there are also some very corrupt cops (a statement on human nature, not law enforcement). You don't have to travel to many third world countries to see good examples of state police terrorizing unarmed citizens. Even a total ban and confiscation of firearms world wide would only result in the following:The use of other weapons to defend life and property or in the criminal's case to commit crimes. I'm thinking here of weapons like knives, machetes, BOWS (such as the one you own Omega), spears, clubs, etc. etc.The eventual resurgence of firearms as people began to make them in efforts to hold superior firepower over weapons like bows, crossbows, etc.The fact of the matter is that when it all boils down and no matter how cliche it may sound, an armed society is a polite society.The way to keep stupid people from using guns to commit crime is to let them know that we've gotten smart and armed ourselves and are willing to defend ourselves, our wives and children, and our homes.One more thought-On the subject of children and firearms.True story, when I was about 7 one of my best buddies from Sunday School was killed by his older brother. It was an accident and I'll never forget the morning I found out about it. As a 7yr old that had already been taught to handle (only with dad around) and respect firearms, To this day I can not fathom that a father would not teach his children what I had been taught. I could tell you where every rifle, shotgun, and pistol was in our home but I wouldn't dare touch one of them because I knew the consequences. I carried that mindset everywhere I went. If I were at a friends and they wanted to show me their dad's gun I knew what the consequences could be. I'm not talking about the belt, even though I was scared of it. I was worried about another buddy, or me, dying.Many parents think that if they don't have guns in there home their child will be okay. Even if you don't want firearms in your home please take your child somewhere and let them learn safety practices and experience shooting a firearm- show them that guns are real and not the toys they see in cartoons and video games. If you prepare them they'll handle the situation well.
