  •  No it is NOT time to disband them (9+ / 0-)

    I am a gun owner who supports very strict gun control laws. I don't participate at RKBA but, I do believe in our 2nd Amendment rights.

    Today in China, a knife wielding man wounded 22 people. Should we then ban knives too? There are millions of responsible gun owners in the U.S. this tragedy is not their fault.

    It is NOT the time to take knee jerk reactions. It is the time to discuss serious ways to control firearms in this country - note that I said CONTROL, not BAN.

    It is also a time when we as a nation need to address the issues of violence and mental health in our society. Rather than banning guns wouldn't our time be better sent looking at the causes of violence in our culture along with finding ways to help the mentally ill who do use weapons as a solution to the "demons" (metaphorical) that haunt them.
