I am a Christian, 9-12er, Three Precent'er and a Fellow Texan! I can't speak much on politics because of my job, but I do propose a question.

What good will gun control do? Is it to try to disarm the criminals or to disarm the good law abiding citizens? In my line of work I seen criminals use weapons on innocent unarmed individuals; and I can tell you if the good guy was armed then the chalk line wouldn't been drawn around him, but around the bad guy instead. I'm not promoting killing the bad guy, I promote the right of defense of self and others!

If you are trying to disarm the criminals good luck because that WILL NEVER happen! They get their weapons and drugs in many ways. I have never picked up a weapon off the street that you find a Gun Store. They don't walk into a store and buy them. So controlling the sale of firearms WOULD NOT be controlling the criminals! Instead it would helping them commit crimes against persons, because good guys weren't allowed a chance to defend themselves due to the fact they couldn't own a gun!

I believe that law abiding citizens have the right and should own and carry firearms for the safety of themselves and their loved ones. An armed society is a polite society! Meaning if we all were armed then there would be less crimes against persons committed!

I carry a gun for a living and everyday when I put it on I tell myself that today might be the day I have to use it. And if I happen to die in the process, then I would of died happy because I would died protecting the rights and the freedom of the citizens' in my community. I don't ever want to kill someone, but I will do everything necessary to come home at the end of my shift! Even if that means that I have to! And I will make sure my partners can go home at the end of there shift too!

What is this I hear about personal ownership of Tanks and Nukes?? One word for that... BOGUS! (I had two words but bogus was politer and I wish to be civil) I can understand about Tanks, but Nukes is just ridiculous! I know of people who own some old WWII Tanks, but they are used for historical and educational uses such as Re-Enactments. Just like people who own old Military Aircraft such as the great B-17 and the B-29. So whenever you talk about the 2nd Amendment, be reasonable and leave out the Tanks and Nuclear Weapons.

Oh, by the way go ask Hitler how gun control worked. It was going pretty good for him and his Nazi party! Wow, I wonder what this world would be like if there wasn't a WAR to stop HITLER and his NAZI party! I'm really glad my fathers and uncles before me fought in that Great War to stop a Sick Minded Evil person as he!

"...He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one." -- Jesus Christ, Luke 22:36

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference. When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." --George Washington

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety " -- Ben Franklin

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms " -- Thomas Jefferson

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government " -- Thomas Jefferson

"A gun is a tool. No better, no worse than any other tool. An axe, a shovel, or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that" -- Unknown (This means Guns don't kill People, People kill People. Just like a baseball bat, the bat didn't jump up and bash the guys brains out, but the person swinging the bat did!)

"The Lord is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me, they will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident." -- PSALM 27:1-3

(If that offends you I'm not sorry! But I am sorry for when the time of judgment comes its gonna be to late for you!)
