Lessen gun control to reduce crime

If we had much less gun control in our country, it is unlikely that the deranged gunman in Colorado would have been able to wreak as much havoc as he did. Someone would have been shooting back.

The Second Amendment states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Making it difficult, restrictive and expensive to get a concealed carry permit is an infringement, as is harassing or treating with suspicion people who carry a weapon openly.

When it comes to firearms, I would like to see us revert back to the days of the Old West. People would be more polite to each other, and we wouldn’t be having these lone wolf massacres. Further, there is no doubt in my mind that we would have less crime.
