Re: Where did I say I oppose laws regulating guns?
The gun control fanatics do all the wrong things and end up giving the criminals free rein. That's what taking guns away from the good guys has done in Australia and the UK, and even restricting where they can be carried as has been done here has had the same effect.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion, but I happen to be a life-long citizen of the UK, and I feel much safer for the fact that ownership of guns is strictly controlled here.

You could take the guns out of the hands of honest people

This reminds me of Slender's remark in 'The Merry Wives of Windsor': 'if I be drunk I'll be drunk with those that have the fear of God, and not with drunken knaves'.

Re: Guns kill 1,300 US children every year, study finds
We just had a republican congressman get shot by a Bernie supporter whose life was saved ... by the defensive use of guns

Whose life was saved? The republican congressman's or the Bernie supporter's?
