5:04 AM 3/18/08 · By and large, I don't have any huge issues with the Right to Bear Arms. Personally I'm not a fan of guns and have no intention of ever owning one. This may become an issue if I get married someday and de lady love wishes to own one...but not in my house.

She can have an axe!

Not a year goes by that I don't hear about some kid finding their parents' gun and either shooting themself or someone in their rough age range.

Criminals are still getting guns fairly easily.

See, I don't mind people having them...but there should be something of a better screening process involved. People that either do, or will, have children should be held to a higher standard. They should at least be required to teach their offspring basic gun safety...even if it's "never touch this"...

...this whole hide it in the shoebox at the back of the closet thang is clearly not working.

Still, the best idea I've heard remains that one I got off the last season of The West Wing. People should be allowed to have guns...but not bullets. There's nothing in the statute that says you have the right to ammunition. Granted, this wouldn't really deter a hardened criminal (they could probably steal some) but at least a lot less kids would be shooting people accidentally.

Might even cut down on the rate of school shootings.

Anyway, that's my 2¢. I'll be sticking with my right to bear arms by not bearing any.
