Thread Name: Guns, to my friends here at Mudcat
Subject: RE: Guns, to my friends here at Mudcat
LEJ, Well, they DO have special lisc. for buses and school bus drivers. Still school busses have gone off roads and killed kids. Other school busses have interfaced with trains.

I have no problem with taking proper training for gun ownership. But after the training, I want the privlage of carring a handgun if I feel the need to do so. Perhaps if there were more armed citizens, there would be less shootings in places like MacDonalds, etc. Perhaps even less muggings. What do you suppose muggers would do if they knew about 1/4 of the people on the street were armed and trained to use said arms? How many house break ins are there in Swistzerland?

I had to take special training to fly an airplane. I wish drivers (cars) had to take the same training that aircraft pilots do. Let's see, every two years you have to hire a driving instructor, to make sure that you know how to change lanes, park, etc. I have to do that with my pilots lisc.

Getting all excited when ever the word 'gun' is mentioned isn't going to help. Unless you just want high blood pressure.

BTW, a few years ago, this nut took an AK47 and shot up some school children. So why did some judge up in Oregon let this piece of trash out of jail. They had him in jail, and could have put him away for years and years. Instead they just let him go, and told him. "By the way, if you feel like comming back, we will put you on trial". (side note to that, a woman was driving drunk and hit a group of five or six kids waiting for their school bus. She killed a couple of the kids. The cops wern't even sure if they were going to charger her with more than invountary manslaughter! The news media dropped it like a hot potato, and pushed the gun story.

So everybody decided to get rid of assult guns (What ever that is, nobody can seem to define it.) instead of doing anything to the dumb judge that let this dirtbag go.

So lets register judges!
