I have been reading gun control studies as I said I would. I have to admit that the statistics are surprisingly low considering all the debate. In Canada?s challenge for gun control, most of which I believe is already in affect in America. There was a drastic difference in gun deaths in Alberta where guns were not required to be registered. Nearly 30%, this number unfortunately includes suicide also. Personally I don?t feel that is relevant to add suicide in the numbers. The nearly 30% represents 2 tenth of 1%. I recognize that gun control is an emotional issue for many people for many reasons. But to pursue this matter any more just is not logical. All agree that even if guns were completely banned and the public disarmed, gun violence would still exist. Lets say that number would grow to ½ of 1%. Let?s all remember that the real reason for the second amendment is to protect the citizens from the government becoming oppressive or tyrannical. It would not be logical to jeopardize the strength or security of a heard for ½ of 1%. Now there are great emotional contacts with that statement, especially if you or someone you know has been involved in some way with gun violence. Or if you attended Columbine High School or Virginia Tech. Logic prevails for shepherds, it has to, if this country makes it past the next 50 years it may stand for a few hundred or thousand more. I know that there is no way our government would ever conduct itself in a tyrannical manor, that is why it is building walls to separate the population of Iraq. I appreciate the debate, I read only pro gun control reports and did not even look into the encyclopedia of info I?m sure the NRA has, it is over as far as I?m concerned.
