 -- Mike, Norwalk      
Here's my version of that sentiment...
When you heard someone advocate for gun control, do remind them of the exceptions. Let’s see there’s the police; they have to carry, the military of course. Oh and all criminals carry.

    And don't worry, when they get "all" the guns,criminals will still have them.

    We are in no need of 'laws' for which the common law has already provided a means of redress. A 'crime' is an act in which a person's rights have been violated with a malicious intent. The transformation of forcing commercial statutes with criminal penalties upon the common people opens up an unlimited field of perpetual legislation and litigation until a free people have forgotten what personal responsibility even means.
