No, I do not want you in jail. You're a good guy with a gun. I agree with your assessment of the bad guys braking the law...but on everything, not just on guns. That doesn't mean we should not have laws. Are laws made to be broken? Certainly not! What we should pursue is to making it more difficult for criminals to access guns, and stop many from killing innocent children. So far just with the Brady rule, more than one million "unqualified" Americans had been stopped from obtaining guns. Is it possible that lives were saved as a result of this? You bet they were! Just to save the life of one child is worth enough to entice all of us to work together on this issue .

Please remember that the "good guys with a gun" remain good guys until they turn bad guys e.g. road rage guys, guys under the influence of drugs/ alcohol, spouse abusers in denial and those who take advantage of the stay your ground rule to kill innocent citizens, under such pretexts.

Lastly, please don't speed and brake the law on highway 12...well doing 5 or 10 miles above the speed limit, is OK! After all everybody does it!

Fear mongering does not help, my friend. You need to educate yourself by reading the last second amendment supreme court interpretation. Such interpretation by Justice Scalia ( hardly a liberal) spells out the limitation of ownership of guns, as a responsible citizen.

About Australia and England, their citizens have the right to own guns...after proper registration. So far their government had not been "tyrannical" as you mentioned. But if you "own" a gun by falsifying documents or making straw purchases they will take your gun away. This is the law here but they take action, we in the US don't.

By registering your car you're already in the government registers many times over, anyway. So, what'.s the big deal?

We liberals are not the Government. We could care less if you keep your guns or not, and as I assume you're a good citizen you should nor fear at all. But it bathers the heck out of me if someone that is not fit to own a gun gets one...or more than one. And this should bather you too!

In Israel almost all citizens have guns, and they carry them everywhere. Israelis have the more strict gun registration on earth. You must wait 6 months to a year for a permit. But if they catch you cheating you're in big, deep trouble...including prison time, and denial of a permit for life. Now, this is real gun control!

Senator Maccain was rescued from a secured death by drowning by a bunch of Mahayana Buddhist. He was very fortunate, indeed!

What a relief, Pearl. I'm so glad that my investments in Cayman Islands, The Bahamas, and my deposits in Switzerland (Banks) are not online due to being "protected" by USA laws! About my letters/ postings to the editor, I just keep them anonymous, under paco1234.

The Supreme Court, and the conservative establishment, has always voted for "plutocracy" (government by the wealthy) and such loaded government is OK with them; as opposed to voting for government by the people and for the people!

The general public must be heard! Please sign Initiative 1329!

Mr. Herrera, did you read what dogman12 is suggesting? Let's do something meaningful sooner rather than later!!

Under such circumstances as presented by dogman12, the taste of beer is rather bitter!

Walla Walla might be creating a case for "prosecutorial laziness and indifference", not a good reputation at this time in its history. As Mr. Herrera is hinting at the possibility of justice indifference towards members of the Hispanic community, some comments of reassurance to the contrary by the Prosecuting Attorney's office is in order.

I personally believe that this is hopefully not the case, the case of prosecutorial indifference, indeed. As we say in Puerto Rico "I decidedly don't believe in the Devil, but I will lit a candle...just in case".
