    Re: Gun amnesty

    The laws in both our countries are the same..... you can hand in any weapon at any time with full impunity.

    Just don't openly carry it into the station......they get a bit tetchy when you do that.

    Re: Gun amnesty

    But, I don't want to give up my guns.
    I've never given any cause to suspect that I should do so.

    It would be a sacrifice that some gun owners would make for the betterment of their community. Though, collecting guns probably does little good as long as they are allowed to be manufactured legally.

    Gun manufacturers and other associated businesses probably employ a lot of people, and as such, like tobacco and alcohol, ceasing production is not going to happen.

    If one could actually make a case for how my giving up guns will save lives and make the community safer, I'd be all for it.
    Therein lies the rub. Sane, responsible adults are not a threat to society, whether they are armed or not.

    Until something is done to assure the mentally ill are getting the treatment they need, the problem will remain unsolved.

    You had trouble comprehending my post, didn't you? You completely missed the point because you're too invested in that silly so-called right to own firearms.

    Nope. I comprehend just fine. My reply was somewhat aligned to your first sentence.

    The rest of what you posted was irrelevant to the point I was aiming for, so I saw no value in bringing it up in that reply.

    My collection is also irrelevant to what the manufacturers are doing.
    Most of the guns I own are no longer made, and their value has little to do with whether manufacturers stay in business or not.

    [aside] Have you ever considered counseling?

    Haha! So, you did have trouble understanding my post. The point in my first sentence is what you completely missed.

    I doubt you need counseling. Less emotion might help though.

    If you say so, it must be true.

    I fully agree. I hope that they improve treatment and availability, but I'm not holding my breath under this admin.

    Personally, I have never had the occasion to feel that I would be safer with a gun. Lucky, I guess.
