GUN RIGHTS

handguns are useful for self-defense

Statics show 57 percent of people believe that owning a gun protects them from being victimized. Guns are used for self-defense 2.5 million times a year.

Wayne Lapierre, Executive Vice president of the NRA, stated " The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

Guns don't kill people, people kill people

People need more gun education and mental illness screening to prevent massacres. Whether in the field, at the range or in home, a responsible and knowledge gun owner is rarely involved in a firearms accident of any kind.

Gun ownership is an american tradition older than our country

The 2nd amendment states, "right to bear arms". Some people use and have guns for hunting. Its not fair to them that they should be unlimited because other people violated their gun rights. 32% of gun owners owned guns for hunting and 7% owned guns for target or sport shootings.
