If you have ever had to use a firearm in self-defense then you understand the importance of the right to keep and bear arms. In 73 my wife scared off someone trying to break into our home. The sound of a 12-gauge shotgun being racked convinced them they were at the wrong house. A few years ago I was working in a liquor store part time for a friend. I could lip read well enough to figure that the six would be robbers sitting in the van outside decided to find easier pickings since I was armed with a Glock 17 and 52 rounds of 9mm Black Talon ammo. Many times just the presence of a firearm can prevent a crime. The fact that good people can carry protects not only them but also those who dislike firearms. Put yourself in the criminal’s shoes. Do you want citizens to be armed and able to defend themselves? I think not. You would prefer to be a wolf with an unending supply of helpless sheep. When FL started issuing carry permits the criminals shifted to out of State visitors and rental cars. FL then had the rental companies remove the stickers from their vehicles and allowed those from out of state to get carry permits. Sure makes it tough if you are a criminal and you don’t know who might be armed and able to defend themselves. Funny, but I never see an anti gun person with a sign on their house or property stating that it is a “GUN FREE ZONE”. We love to travel but we don’t go to States that do not honor our carry permits. We prefer to spend our dollars in States that trust us as law abiding citizens to be able to defend ourselves, should it ever become necessary. The problem is not firearms but bad people using firearms to do bad things.

DEbjack, you are right about the "black belt". It might be quite good to have one at a distance of 3 feet, but my "black pistol" is good to about 30 yards, and my "black rifle" takes that to about 500 yards.

Cher, What happened with the Fl National Guard is standard operating procedure. When a state of emergency exists, as in a federal disaster area, there is always the option of federalizing the guard. There are two reasons for the offer by President Bush. If federalized, the pay for the guard would come from the federal budget, not state. Also, depending on the situation, if additional military troops were needed, there would be a unified command. Gov. Bush felt that it was not necessary, and the guard stayed under state command and budget. The current system with the National Guard has worked well for over 200 years. We do not need a federal paramilitary force. I believe that any such force would require some major changes in federal law, and possibly even amending the Constitution. Such a force would be a logistical nightmare with tremendous potential for abuse. If a conservative put forth such an idea, I believe that the left would be screaming "Gestapo or Hitler's SS" to the top of their lungs. The Founding Fathers covered this quite well when they defined the Militia as the "people as a whole, with the exception of certain elected officials" George Mason.

Desty, Don't forget that The thug broke into DelMar's home the night before and stole several things including his vehicle AND his house keys. DelMar and his family were in the house at the time. The next night the thug came back driving DelMars own vehicle. He used DelMars keys to gain intance into the home. DelMar went into his childrens room with his hand gun. When the bastard opened the door DelMar shot him. He was in fear of his childrens lives. The thug was apprehended on the way to a local hospital in DelMars vehicle. Also a gun was found on the thug. If DelMar had not shot the man his children and possibly his wife and himself would have been dead or worse. Worse being his children and wife raped and then killed. DelMar and people like him are heroes because they said to hell with the law when their families are in trouble. He and others like him in every state should run for office so they can abolish these stupid laws protecting criminals and victimizing law abiding citizens.

llinois resident Hale DeMar was prosecuted by the town of Wilmette for using a handgun to defend his home in 2003. Wilmette had imposed a ban on the possession of handguns, in effect making the town a gun-free zone.

To correct the situation, several Illinois state legislators introduced SB 2165 to protect the right of self-defense for residents like DeMar. Obama voted against the bill.

That self-defense bill protecting the right to bear arms for law-abiding citizens such as DeMar passed the Illinois state Senate and was enacted into law over the governor's veto (and Obama's opposition).

So he wouldn't ban handguns, he would just ban using them.
