    The bravery is almost overwhelming, pulling out guns in a McDonalds. Now that is a real man.
    It would be nice to try to infiltrate these gangs and get the illegal guns off the street, or to have a war on illegal guns. There used to be (?) a war on drugs, I don't know if you recall that. But maybe sometime when the politicians don't have much to do and police chiefs are not backlogged, maybe they could sit around and sort of talk about a War on Illegal Handguns. Or, maybe not:) No real urgency about it, judging from all the news articles posted daily on the forums. It seemed kind of urgent to me.

    That would cause just as many problems and waste just as much money as the "war on drugs".

    packinnova: Hi. I learned that just now on a thread I started in Law Enforcement re War on Illegal Firearms. I see now that taking away bad guy's guns is no solution :) So they get to keep 'em. Well, not the one who gets caught but the next young thug who wants to use one, has one. I have learned a lot about it just this morning....

    the real proplem isnt so much the illigal firearms ,but the anti gun laws against LAW ABIDING CITIZENS .
    Make it lawfull to shoot these type of thugs and not be in a court battle and many $$$$$ later.

    The real problem is these thugs having access to firearms.

    Yes...but this access is NOT legal access to firearms. Ergo, the criminals are obtaining firearms illegally--that's why they are criminals.

    We don't have a firearm problem, we have a people problem. Specifically, criminals. Get rid of the criminals, crime tends to go away.

    There is an organization that says that is their goal. Reasonable Gun control laws or some such thing. Think it is headed by a Sara Brady. I don't support that thinking on any level. Inevitably that results in gun control laws that impede law abiding citizens ability to defend themselves. Instead why not abolish all the laws that protect criminals? Make it legal to defend our selves, our property, and our country? Want to see a terrorist? Check out the hood. Probably not PC but in this case if all the parties involved were gang bangers I don't see a problem. If citizens were hurt, well than its time to get the rope and do some aversion therapy
    Personally if thugs would limit their shooting to other thugs I'd be all for supplying the ammo. Better yet have all gun ranges offer free shooting lessons to all known gang bangers. Rival gangs practicing on alternate nights. Fridays could be free ammo day when rival gangs bangers would be encouraged to come. Now that is a reality show I would watch.....TONIGHT we have the blue team challenging the red team for Americas Baddest MoFo award. Losers will be buried winner will be provided free room and board in one of the state's line of Grey Bar Hotels for the remainder of their lives.
