    I am a peace officer,and my feelings on gun control are that its not effective. Criminals have never registered guns and use those same guns to harm innocent citizens.They buy on the streets then use them in crimes.This leaves the law abiding citizens powerless against them.Lets face it law inforcement can't be all places at all times.With that being said I would challenge anyone to take A long look at cities and countries that allow law abiding poeple to carry guns for their personal protection. They have a much lower murder rate.Criminals look for easy prey just as bullies do, not someone who is albe to defend his or her self.It makes no sense that being a member of law enforcement trusted and charged with the task of keeping society safe but at the same time telling me that they don't even trust me with certain types of weapons leaving us under manned and out powered. With odds like that how can we win this war.
