thanks all for responses, emails, and babblemail.
I'm really struggling with depression, now dwarfed by what happened on the Virginia Tech Campus.
Having been in the military and fired umpteen different types of weapons, I think gun control: banning handguns, automatic weapons, clips, and even ammo are reasonable public safety measures. Homeowners would still have rifles and shotguns to shoot people with. Texas now allows gunlovers to shoot people for little or no reason.
If our government can't restrict access to weapons without violating the constitution, why are mortars, grenades, bazookas, stinger missiles, anti-tank missiles, and a vast assortment of exotic weaponary, banned? Doesn't that violate the gunlover's rights too?
Just add handguns, automatic weapons, and ammo clips to name a few to the banned list. And close all the loopholes.
