I'm chiming in kind of late here. Despite my liberal leanings, I'm appreciative of guns and weapons in general. They have saved my life on more than one occasion. As others have said ... great equalizers. I own an AK47, a combat shotgun, and a Walther PPK. Still looking for another nice handgun.
The only fact in this entire argument that matters is the fact that criminals have firearms. The only way to be sure that I have a chance in the event that I'm attacked/robbed/etc. by an armed individual is to have quick access to a loaded gun.

Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
