Seriously, folks - it's called Snopes, and, unlike guns, it saves lives:

It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montanaand Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke throughthe front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room andgrabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun. Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be thefirst to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old'sknee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals. When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to theleft shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to deathbefore medical help could arrive. It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim,50-year-old David Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to thechest. Ever wonder why good stuff never makesNBC, CBS,PBS,MSNBC, CNN, orABC news.... Now that is Gun Control!

Re: AST (After Sean Taylor)-To gun or not to gun?

Not picking sides here, but for every story like this is a story of some kid who accidently killed a buddy while playing with dad's gun. Or, some kid who took dad's gun to school...

And why was an 11-year old left home alone?

yup.

I'm very pro-gun, but very pro-gun control. I don't understand why people have to take a test in order to drive a car, but anyone over a certain age with no felonies can buy a handgun. Policies banning certain setups are definitely the wrong approach in my opinion. Better screening for intelligence and mental health is the way to go, with the cost getting passed on to the people purchasing...

again just my opinion...

I guess people just skip over posts.

Sounded a little too good to be true, for sure.

Re: AST (After Sean Taylor)-To gun or not to gun?

I still don't quite understand the logic, "To combat the threat of guns, we need to give everyone guns." It's akin to the U.S. arguing in the Cold War, "to combat the threat of nuclear arms, we need to proliferate nukes." Gun-advocates view gun-control proponents as naive, but I'm not sure that people who believe 99% of people can handle guns are themselves entirely in touch with reality.

Re: AST (After Sean Taylor)-To gun or not to gun?

Both sides (I'm neither for nor against guns btw) seem to only consider their perspective when arguing their case. I guess that's logical, but there are countless stories as to why someone wants or does not want to own a gun. If you have a specific and personal reason for owning a gun then you should be able to own one. If guns make you uncomfortable then don't have one in your home. Right now the laws seem pretty fair for both sides.

If I had one opinion on the matter it would be guns should be used for home defense and recreation not to be carried around in public places.

That it's a false story. The guns comment is (quite obviously) commentary.

F that someone comes into my house at night they are getting blasted. Even if they kill me they're going down with me. I didn't need ST to die to know that.

that's because that statement represents 2 extreme points of view.

#1 that guns themselves pose a threat to anything

#2 that everyone should have them.

Neither of these statements is remotely accurate, so if you put them together obviously it's going to sound absurd... there is no logic to that statement, and I find it difficult to believe anyone is arguing that.

Good post, I agree.
I have a .45 next to bed, but I keep a bullet out of the chamber just to avoid accidental firings.
I firmly think all honest people should have a gun, if intruders were shot and killed every time they broke into a house, I guarantee the amount of break ins would decrease by a substantial margin. You should always protect yourself and your family, but learn / educate yourself on how to use it, and of course, go to a gun range and learn how to shoot it too. No point in having it if you're just going to shoot the wall. Practice makes perfect.

Re: AST (After Sean Taylor)-To gun or not to gun?

I'm not really an advocate for guns personally and unless I end up being some Dr. Making XXX,XXX+ amounts of money, I hope I'll never have a need for one. But I believe that when you live in a nice neighborhood or a well known person making a hell of a lot of money. You NEED a gun.

... Or a REALLY big bodyguard.

In the case of athletes I do advocate them carrying guns.
