Gun control does nothing to prevent criminals from obtaining firearms. Just like alcohol during the prohibition era and illegal drugs now, people who are criminals who want something will find a way to get that something. By definition, criminals don't obey the law, therefore, passing more laws won't stop criminals from getting guns.
As a conservative, I view the first ten US Constitutional Amendments (aka the Bill of Rights) as I view the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments are not the Ten Suggestions, and the Bill of Rights is not the Bill of Priviledges. Rights are God-given, and the Bill of Rights is US affirmation of them, while priveledges can be taken away. I have also noticed that the amendments are listed in order of importance, and that each is supported by those underneath. In the movie "Farewell to the King," when Nick Nolte's character is asked what he wants: (1) Freedom, (2) Guns so you can't take the freedom away, and (3) Mortars and mines so you can't takie the guns away. Nolte played an ex-Communist, but as a king he apparently became a supporter of the first three US Amendments.
  • Also, it has been said that a liberal is just a conservative who has not been mugged yet. When Rosie O'Donnell stopped doing commercials for Kmart because they sold guns, she claimed to have received death threats and hired a bodyguard. The first thing the bodyguard did was to apply for a gun permit. Many liberals can afford to hire their own protection, while many conservatives must defend themselves because most liberals are wealthy and conservatives are real people like you and me.
