"Gun registration, permits to purchase, license to own, and license to carry are very important safety precautions. States like New Jersey require all of these, depending on specific uses of the weapon. Vermont, however, requires none, and the minimum age is 16. ...

"Are people expecting incidents in their frontyards? No, but people are starting to think things are possible that they never thought were possible before." The majority of first-timers seeking guns and permits are women, said area gun store owners.

This sociology professor tells us that we're only hurting ourselves in the long run, because having "these types of objects around the house" just reminds us how fearful we are. And what kind of message does it send the CHILDREN??

"With passage of this legislation, the Senate has taken a significant step toward ensuring that law enforcement has the tools needed to investigate and deter terrorist attacks. But there is one glaring omission - nothing in this bill will close the gaps in our federal firearm laws that allow terrorists to amass their deadly arsenals. The House should address this failure when it takes up the legislation today." --Sarah Brady
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Without freedom there will be no firearms among the people; without firearms among the people there will not long be freedom. Certainly there are examples of countries where the people remain relatively free after the people have been disarmed, but there are no examples of a totalitarian state being created or existing where the people have personal arms.
