Just remember... YOU, as a law-abiding citizen, can't legally carry a gun, even though HE is still out there, walking our neighborhood at-will, packing heat, robbing and assaulting as he likes.

You hit that one right on the nail head, and the criminals always will have guns, it is amazing that politicians think changing the laws for law abiding citizens is going to change the way criminals behave, just thank a democrat the when you or your family is shot and you have no means to protect yourself like they do across the river in Virginia
