There is a lot of controversy dealing with gun control. To me, 'gun control' means using, handling a gun safely and responsibly.
Some seem to think that banning guns or magazines will take care of a particular problem, but it will not work that way, never has, never will.
To effectively ban a gun, every thing that functions, or looks like a gun would have to be done away with, every citizen in the world would have to give them up,
Every country, every government, every person, this would be the only way a gun ban would work. Now, would this ever happen? Never, no Never.
If the law abiding citizens of the United States were ever to give up their guns, the government, would be the only entity with guns, we would then be subjects, just like many of the existing countries on Earth today. And it seem that automatic rifles are picked-on the most. Why? Because they are the best type of self-defense weapons. The term "assault rifle' is used to make it seem more terrible than it is.
I believe that those who commit crimes with guns should never have their names or pictures printed in newspapers for their five minutes of fame. Their punishment should be so severe as to discourage others from doing the same thing.
There will be many who will disagree, it is their privilege, but if they would study a little bit, and use a little common sense about this topic, they might just see my reasoning.
