Unhappy with call to ban all guns


OK, one letter writer wants to ban all guns. One question, how would you go about this?

Go house to house, asking for or demanding all guns? Require search warrants if the homeowner will not let the police in willingly? Gonna need a lot more lawyers and judges, and bigger budgets just for the warrants. Where is the budget to compensate people for the loss of their property? What about anybody who does not want to give up their guns, from Joe Hunter to John Streethood? You will never find them.

And when you have collected all the guns from legitimate owners, the only ones still with guns will be the thugs and terrorists. Oh yeah, call a cop when you get held up at gunpoint. They'll show up just in time to call an undertaker for you.
