Gun Control
By George Smith

I agree with Dr McGee, as I have seen countries that have gun contol over the people that should have guns to protect themselves and their families from the criminal element.

I was taught how to handle and respect a gun when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I had my own single shot 22 when I was 10 years old and I still have it.

I had to use guns when I was in service during the forgotten Korean war. I was there defending the rights of the people there and in the United States of America. I had friends there that died defending those same rights.

I will defend those rights for people to legally own and with a concealed weapons permit carry their weapons as a defense against tyranny and the U.S. government gun grabbers that are in power at this time.

I have in my 80 years never seen a gun go out looking to commit a crime, it takes a person to do that. Maybe what we need to do instead of getting rid of guns and putting more people out of work address the problem PEOPLE that are criminals. Maybe we could go back to the bible of an eye for an eye or a life for a life. We could even go to the point of having them stoned to death. I think we should keep our guns and get rid of the offending fingers that are used in the commitment of a crime using a gun.

God Bless us all, he knows what is right and one day we will all have to answer to him for what we did in our life time as he is the Ultimate Judge.
