Obviously, he knew where she kept her guns. Were they locked? Did he have the combo? I don't know. What I do know is that the guns were not his, they were stolen. Regardless of who owned them, they were stolen.

How would you feel if that psycho made his way into your place of employment and shot you up before you had time to defend yourself? (Oh, that's right, you carry so you'd be able to wild west shoot him up before he ever got to you right?)"]We all take a risk fo some physco going nuts. But, if it were to happen, I would rather "someone" at our place of employment be armed rather than all of us being totally vulnerable

Yeah, you're right, everyone should be able to buy whatever they want and it should be no matter if they proved they were competent to own the gun, or drive the car, or anything else it should just be a free for all right? Right to own the gun? In most cases, people have to pass a background check right now. IMO, protecting my family is one of the most important roles I have as a father/ head of household.

News flash, you may have been born when the constitution was written, sorry, not that far back [/COLOR]but if you haven't noticed things have changed a bit. [COLOR="rgb(221, 160, 221)"]No, I don't think they have. We had tragedies and mass murders long before either of us was born. Do you know that the biggest mass murder in Michigan was not with a gun? It was with a bomb back in the 1920's. So, no, things have not changed all that much. Rather, there is more media attention and quite frankly, more of us.[/COLOR] Adaptations of our rights isn't a terrible thing as long as they are not being taken away.correct[/COLOR]

There is no reason to take our rights away, but if someone gets his hands on your guns because you aren't being a responsible gun owner by all fucking means that should be trackable and you should be responsible for it.[COLOR="rgb(221, 160, 221)"]Nope, if they are stolen, they are stolen. Period. You take something from me without my permission, you are a low down thief. Don't blame someone else's wrong doing on me when they violated me.[/COLOR]

This kind of attitude in my opinion is what is wrong with this country and its extremism of the two parties recently and why nothing can be accomplished. Maybe if we went back to spanking our kids and teaching them right from wrong instead of hugging them and saying "it's OK Johnny, you are a good boy", things would not be so bad.

Your thought is its my right and I'm not changing even if we have a criminal problem with guns.
The lefts thought is take all guns away.

How about the left says we'll let you keep any and all guns you want to buy if you allow some regulation, and the right says, hey, we'll make you a deal, we'll increase the regulations on guns, but we still get to buy whatever we want so long as we do a better job of making sure those guns don't get into the wrong hands, and if they do we will increase the penalties for the guns owner so people act more responsibly with their guns and how they store them when they are not around Nope, I don't agree. I will not take responsibility for a thief.......wow look we comprimised and no one lost any rights, we enhanced everyones safety from psycho's, and we all still get to buy whatever guns we want.
