    • Austin Craig: Rialto, guns are not the problem. People are the problem. I could just as easily argue that we need to ban Subway trains b/c people

    • Austin Craig: keep being pushed off the tracks. Cars kill as well. The issue is not the object that kills but rather the person.
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: Any object can be used for good or evil. Taking away good mens weapons in order to empower criminals is not the solution.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Please, do not support your local gun dealer. (which btw outnumber McDonalds). Think of them as just another Monsanto. (Agent Orange, GMO's)

    • Perkins Cove: The line got crossed at Sandy Hook. Let's get real. Please.
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: Rialto, I always support freedom giving my background in the Military. Gun dealers are no more evil than the guy at sears who sells you
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: various tools. Tools that can be used for good or evil purposes. In fact they empower freedom and liberty. I will however agree with you on

    • Austin Craig: GMO, can't say I am a big fan of genetically modified food. Personally I would ban it but at the very min. I want it on labels so i can
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: know exactly what I am putting in my body. Of course the GMO companies are less than thrilled about such laws passing.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Austin, so we can agree on GMO's. Good. And i have never seen a gun that could pull it's own trigger. You are right, it is a tool.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: But we have too many of the wrong tools, and too few of the right ones. I feel we should not support the gun manufacture's with our dollars.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: ....anymore than we should support Monsanto, "Monsatan" as Dr Kris calls them.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Gun owner here, one rifle, older than me. I vote for freedom from fear....especially from some nut with an AR-15

    • rvclark: @Rialto: Question that you might answer...What caliber of "knife" was Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman murdered with?
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: rvclark, I agree with Austin that a gun is just a tool. I have such a tool. And I have a knife. But I see no need to own a Bushmaster AR-15
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Someday....we should be able to come to an agreement as to which tools we need. And when those tools should be used. Agreed?

    • Perkins Cove: This human race on earth is struggling. With itself. And the money complicates things.

    • Perkins Cove: Austin, you said "with due respect" on my comment to your article linked above. I pay it back...now. Together we could fix this......cheers

    • Perkins Cove: Austin...Oh S**T...I just looked at your bio. X Army!....even better. Big fan of the military here....sorry about Schwarzkopf.

    • z28gator: Great article, Austin!
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Austin, sorry for the rant. Actually, thank you for the opportunity to rant. I needed that. Together we could work this out. Think Swiss...
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: I really do not mind talking to people who are anti gun as long as the reasons are logical and it can be civil. I will admit I feel very
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: strongly about the subject. Personally I view the .223 as a very poor choice. Its basically just a .22 that shoots extremely fast.
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: I would much rather see people pack more weapons in order to be secure against criminals and a hostile government (think Hitler vs Jews).
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: "Hitler vs Jews" Whoa...now your getting into heavy stuff. And ya...it's not about caliber.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: For me it's more about keeping guns out off the hands of crazies. And our social systems can't do that. We have a flaw.....us. We love guns.
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: I would love to keep them out of the hands of crazies but lets say you ban all weapons. Could they not use use something else? I think so.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: No, banning all weapons (for other than military/law enforcement0 ain't it.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: But could we cut it down to a limit of rounds in say, a hunting rifle? Like 7? Do you know how long it takes me to reload my .303 savage?
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: ...and do you know anywhere i can get .303 Savage cartridges? Just kidding...I have 7 rounds left. And no, they are NOT loaded.....grin
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: So then as a bad guy I just adapt and instead of engaging at close range (where a concealed permit holder could engage back) they move
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Point being.....we need to get to a better place. A place where military/law enforcment are not outgunned. And our schools do not become....
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: to a longer distance away. Say 400 meters. DC snipers would be a great example of this. I just think your going to have an impossible time
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: ....armed camps. Otherwise Hitler was right. I choose we find a better course
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: stopping kiling by taking away peoples guns. The problem in my opinion is a society that lacks morals and some are just bonkers.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Austin, your right. it's not about taking away guns. I have one. I get it. The keepers of the loony bin are way behind the curve.
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: In the meantime, can we just cut down on the leathel effectiveness of firearms not in the hands of authorities? Grant us that?
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: I could twist your words here and agree that yes, we can cut down on the lethal effectiveness by asking teachers to be trained and pack heat
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: Or more people could legally pack a concealed weapon. :)
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Austin....got kids? What do you really want for them. Namasta
      12/28/12
    • Austin Craig: Yes I have kids. They are quite safe. What is Namasta?
      12/28/12
    • Perkins Cove: Look it up. It's your homework for the weekend........over and out......grin
