Heston on Guns

Let me make a short, opening, blanket comment. There are no good guns. There are no bad guns. Any gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a decent person is no threat to anybody - except bad people.

-Charleton Heston

If guns kill people, then cars drive drunk, pencils misspell words and spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat.

James Holmes had a clean record.
He was a "good guy" per public records, school records and any other damn records you can lay your hands on.
He legally bought guns, four guns, shot 50 people - and killed 12 of them including a 3 month old baby, an aspiring sportscaster and many more who's loss will leave a void.
So who the hell decides "decent" people from "bad" people...a "decent" today person can lose his mind tomorrow. People change- guns don't, guns just kill!
So now, to be safe while going to a movie, while getting coffee, or just while walking down the street, one has to carry their gun, to protect themselves from other "bad" people who have guns, and who have lost their minds...

And you can confiscate all the damned guns "you can lay your hands on" and you won't stop all gun violence nor crazy people from doing crazy things ! You going to confiscate all items that can be made into bombs? Knives? ballbats? cars?..... just shut the hell up- Like Bill O. said " That is so dumb it hurts"
