    Default Legal gun owners under attack AGAIN!

    so the MIP is considering a desarming of the general public. Supposedly they're actually gonna go threw with it this time. At a time when the country is at it's worst prime (after elections) do you seriously think that legal gun owners are going to give in their weapons and leave there homes, and families unprotected? What are your takes on this guys? is This BS like always, or do you think this time they will actually go threw with it? Personally i think this Fadul Guy Has to go! ever since he's taken over the mip, all we've been seeing is ridicoulous stunts from that office! All attacks against legal gun owners, meanwhile the delincuentes are getting armed to the teeth!

    I haven't seen anything that said they were thinking of taking all the guns away, just tighten up restrictions. If a gun owner feels the need to have a gun to protect his home and family, fine. Keep it in the house for protection. He doesn't need to have it concealed at a political rally, for example.

    Too bad there isn't a way to accurately identify those who take the responsibility of owning a gun seriously. Responsible owners always suffer because of the need to control the irresponsible and lack of a good method of differentiating between the responsible and irresponsible.

    It's not the bullet with my name on it that worries me. It's the one that says "To whom it may concern."

    I will not carry a gun.... I'll carry your books, I'll carry a torch, I'll carry a tune, I'll carry on, carry over, carry forward, Cary Grant, cash and carry, carry me back to Old Virginia, I'll even hari-kari if you show me how, but I will not carry a gun! Hawkeye, M*A*S*H, "Officer of the Day"

    And so, to the end of history, murder shall breed murder, always in the name of right and honor and peace, until the gods are tired of blood and create a race that can understand.

    Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.

    I remember that episode and line of MASH!! As soon as I saw Cary Grant! Classic show!

    I agree with you, if you go out with a gun, trouble will follow you, but I also think that its a good idea to have one at home for self defense...in the car under the seat for self defense again....I've lived in Stgo many years never needed one or the other, this keeps you humble and out of trouble.. If youre out in the streets with a gun....trouble looks for trouble...

    That all sounds good Hlywud, but we live in a DR where anti social behavior is on the increase and all signs point to a continued increase ad infinitum -- child pregnancies are up, child abandonment is up, available work is down, you will have an entire generation of kids that are being 'thrown away' and ignored, especially the boys -- this will lead to more and more crime.... some expats (and many locals), feel they have the right to defend their families - not just in their homes, but in their cars, and yes even walking down the malecon on a Sunday afternoon. Why not?

    I respectfully disagree. Having carried a concealed weapon in various jurisdictions CONUS and OCONUS for going on 40 years there has been no trouble for me. Close on a couple of occasions but it was avoided. One time because I was able to diffuse the situation by declaring I was armed and prepared but without ever removing my weapon from the holster. Make no mistake, possessing and even more so carrying a weapon requires an extreme amount of training and self discipline. But to generalize that being armed invokes trouble is wrong. The people that are trained and have the proper state of mind never seek conflict and seldom if ever are drawn into it unnecessarily. How to effectively determine who is capable of the responsibility and who is not is next to impossible. But those legally afforded the responsibility are certainly in the vast minority when it comes to improperly invoking deadly force.

    Even in the DR the chance of being in the spot where lightening strikes is mathematically improbable. Making carrying a gun similar to carrying on a parachute for that improbable chance the plane goes down with similar chances of changing outcome to a positive, with one major difference. Most people will feel rage at some point or maybe multiple times in their life. And most people are not trained or emotionally capable of being assured they will not reach for and wave the thing around or worse in a fit of rage. Some are trained to deal with such occurances...most are not. The rest is just 0 sum game political bs propigated by people who believe even child safety locks start a slide down a slippery slope toward constitutional anarchy. ..rip mr heston
