Why Do We Need Guns?

My response to the tragedy at Virginia Tech is ... Please, please, answer for the me, the following ...

1. Why oh why do we need guns? [The 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution states we have the right to bear and keep arms.]

2. Why do we need to have auto- or semi-automatic weapons? [Other than law enforcement officers, why would anyone ever need to be able to shoot 13-15 rounds per clip?]

3. Why are non-U.S. citizens (people with Green Cards) allowed to carry guns? What is the thinking behind this, other than more gun sales?

4. As parents, we child-proof our homes. Why can't we follow the examples of Japan and the U.K. and gun-proof our nation?

We say rogue nations like North Korea should not have nuclear power.

5. Why can't we say ordinary citizens cannot the have (nuclear) power to kill 33 people in one morning? ["Guns don't kill people, people do." "Guns don't kill people, bullets do."]

In countries that prohibit personal ownership of weapons criminals STILL have guns leaving the law abiding citizens at their mercy. Our nation's founding principles include the right to self protection against criminals and against the tyranny of its own government.

If you are serious about knowing the "Why" about personal arms please read "The Second Amendment Primer" by Les Adams, Palladium Press or Amazon Books.
