    Good morning from central Ohio

    I am here in central Ohio, and considering a concealed carry license. I don't own a gun so it seems a little silly but I'd like to understand guns more. I am very much a second amendment supporter but we have 6 young children. Some might say it is a good reason to have a gun to protect us and our stuff. But at this time I don't feel comfortable having one in the house. I know there are safes, but if you have it locked up what good does it do if you have to fumble around in the dark?

    The reason I decided to come to this forum is to learn more about the firearms themselves. In light of the event that occurred in CT, I want to try to do something to help be safer. I think laws need reformed, but not the gun laws. Gun free zones are horrible, they just make people sitting ducks. Targets for bad people. But you all know that:). I just hope there is a way to change the minds of our elected officials. I don't know if stricter background checks would have prevented the school tragedies, so I don't know if it is a good suggestion. One idea is to place armed security in every school...hire veterans. They are sworn to protect the US, so why not employ them in schools? I don't know how that would be instituted but we pay enough taxes and I don't think that's a waste of money.



    I just got here and only read a few things. I did see someone putting together a letter to senators. Unfortunately one of our senators is Sherrod Brown...not sure how far a letter about not making stricter gun control would go, but I guess I could point out Chicago gun laws and say how well that is working, or the insane guy in Norway who shot those kids. Norway has a very strict gun law....criminals don't care. So I guess sending letters and calling is a place to start.

    Sorry for rambling, I know this in an intro thread, but I have a lot of thoughts right now. And I keep hearing the more gun control argument and it isn't the answer. The assault weapon debate is goofy to me because couldn't anything be an assault weapon? A car, a knife, a fork...a bat or anything like that could be used to assault someone. So should we ban those things? It is a silly argument to me. Prohibition didn't work. Why would eliminating all the "bad" firearms work?



    Thanks for reading.:)

    Thank you to all. I do hope to learn more. I would like to educate my boys. One asked for a BB gun for Christmas. Lol. We live in a suburb, and there isn't really a place to target shoot. Too many houses, people, dogs...although deer roam through, I don't think people would appreciate BB holes in their siding, or in their eye. ;). So for now we will just have to go to a facility and practice there.

    Welcome!!

    I don't think we should try to change the minds of elected officials; we should change the elected officials. JMHO.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
