Doobio24: Yea,And you can also get hit by a bus to but, maybe you can get a couple of rounds off at the bus before it hits you! This could be a new fashion look you know everyone having a gun hanging from their waist! Also you could add a hat with propellers spinning on top! Stop being so paranoid,life is short even without guns!

Laura-glad you like my brand of humor. But I wasn't joking. For all of you who choose to not carry a weapon used to protect more power to you. I wish you the best when someone attacks you or your family. Growing up in Williamsport in the 70's I don't remember the amount or type of crime being reported today. It is brutal and getting worse. So again I want to thank all you disallusioned, anti-gun owning, liberals for donating your lives to save mine. As you would rather see law abiding citizens gunless over a few peoples bad choices, I can assure you all you efforts will not keep a criminal from obtaining a gun. I hope "forty" is around when one of these ****** addicts crosses your path with a weapon he purchased with one of you Obama handouts.

Yes bornandreaised the aftermath of mass murders done by these high powered, multi round weapons is an assult on innocent people. I have also lived in Williamsport or close by(montoursville) all of my life I have never ever felt the need to have, let alone need to carry a weapon like that on a daily basis. I am glad I don't live in "your" Williamsport. Why such defense of a weapon that serves no one but the military?

There is no such thing as an assault rifle anything can be used in an assault. (Knife, brick, hammer, paperclip, etc) There are fully automatic, semi automatic, bolt action, single shot and shotgun, no assault.

bornandraised: An "assault knife",that's a new one! I guess if you take a "butter knife" and use it to hurt someone or someones I guess we can call it an "assault knife" then when you're done you can butter your bread! An "assault rifle" is an "assault rifle" and there is no bread involved!

Bornandraised when do you in your everyday life require the need for an assult weapon? Unless you are in the military and on active duty I see no need for them and I am a gun owner. In reality how many "mass knifings" has there been(not counting the recent one in PA)? If you are trying to use the rational that an assult rifle and a knife are the same in the damage they can do ,I certainly do not agree.

How nice the comedy duo of Boobie and Doobie took my advice and went on the comedy circuit. Problem is neither of you are all that funny just offensive as usual, come on tell me you are really the same person? You would think that with all of your other "personalities" boobie that one would actually have a brain,I guess not. If they were actually trying to get rid of "cheap parasites" you would have been gone along time ago.

Forty (almost fifty) - almost 7 billion people in the world. It is argued that the world can only support 8 billion with its natural resources. I am thankful that you have volunteered to give you life so that we all can survive. Now I just need another billion that think like you do.

"Again I think the S/G besides asking for personel information to post comments and repies they should ask what the person's I.Q. is rated at before being accepted."

They already eliminated some of the cheap liberal parasites from here, now you want to eliminate all of them?

And once we get the schools banned, we can work on banning cars, because we all know they are the cause of DUI's

In the liberal mecca of Chicago, where legal gun ownership is challenging, at best, there were 44 wounded and 8 killed in shootings over the weekend.

"The superintendent said the vast majority of shootings in Chicago are gang-related, and detectives were working to determine “which of the hot conflicts” were to blame for the most recent spate of violence."

I'm not sure how this happens. Apparently criminals and gang thugs aren't obeying the laws there.

whenever a mass shooting happens we should ban whatever type of business.........LauriH

We can't just segregate it to mass shootings any mass killing. No more marathons, big office buildings, ect. anything that has the potential to have a mass disaster.
