do you feel the same way about people who use drugs recreationally? that drug-related violence and murder and health problems are not in any way the casual drug user's fault or problem?

Do you think it should be required? Earlier you said no restrictions.

I think a little more training should go along with anyone interested in buying a gun. I offer it to anyone I talk to who comes to me for ideas of what gun they should buy for their first.

I don't blame my many friends who are recreational drug users with the slaughter that goes down in the cities, no. I don't blame my car for highway deaths either.

Of course not.

Their drugs aren't transported by drug mules, and no kids in the ghetto peddle them. We are talking about middle class or upper class recreational drug users not some filth down in west Baltimore, ok?

it would probably be better to arm everyone in west Balty so they just kill each other off. if that's how they choose to use the gun, that's neither my fault nor my problem. it's not like i'm going to drive my SUV anywhere near those neighborhoods.

We're not talking about another country. Saipan (i.e. the Commonwealth of the Norrthern Marianas Islands) is part of the United States, just like St. Thomas.

I'm not sure how many murders we have each year, but I know that murders are rare.
