So inspired by conversation on another thread, I thought it would be interesting to start a thread focused solely on the issue of gun laws themselves. Since that is an incredibly broad topic, I have the idea of splitting it into multiple focused parts over the course of a couple of weeks. I was wondering if anyone would be interested?
To add some fuel to the fire, let me start off by saying that I am in favor of gun control (a possibly controversial stand for a Kimber forum
). However, I also think that the majority of gun laws that we have now are silly and I am definitely not in favor of most gun control legislation from the political arena.
Now, what I'm NOT trying to do is stir up a pot that just ends up in people yelling at each other and hurt feelings. Also, when I'm talking about "gun control laws," I'm specifically talking about firearms that are currently considered as being for the "civilian" market.
In the end, there will be no real "point" to this exercise as it won't change anything in the greater scheme of things. However, I think it can be helpful to relook your opinions from time to time and a healthy debate can not only make someone rethink their own views in some cases, but also be able to strengthen them and it can help you examine "why" something is actually good.
So let me know what you all think. If people feel that this could make for an interesting diversionary topic, I'll start another post this week sometime. If most people feel that it's a waste of their time, I'll simply drop it.
