    Did restrictive New Jersey gun laws kill Carol Bowne?

    A brutal murder case in southern New Jersey has put the state’s restrictive gun laws in the spotlight, and yesterday’s National Review fingered the “deadly consequences” of those laws as police hunted for the man they believe stabbed a woman to death earlier this week.

    Maybe we should give everyone a gun?

    You know, according to the libturds logic, if it saves one life..... :cool:

    No, I don't believe we should "give" everyone a gun.
    They ought to buy it, just like I bought mine ;)

    Seriously, we need to concentrate on protecting the right to MAKE THAT CHOICE! No taxes, no waiting periods, no "qualification" hoops...
    Thanks for reading and sharing your opinion.. How about sharing it over on Examiner, too?

    To answer the question you pose Dave, I would say yes. The guy had a history of violence against women, had a restraining order against him, and the woman he killed had already purchased an alarm system for her home, and had had the windows of her car broken.
    While the perp should have been in jail.

    Yet an everytown spox says it's not known whether her having a gun would have prevented her death.
    smFh.

    These people are bonafide idiots and cowards.

    I dont know why a gun rights group doesnt publish a study (it would be a great counter campaign for all the "statistics" the gun control community publishes), I dont think gun control laws have ever saved even one life but there are numerous cases like this where gun control has taken lives. Many lives. Start with the Texas Lubys Shooting.

    What IS known is that NOT having a gun and the potential to employ it to defend herself cost her life.

    Wow! If all of you guys would do what Stomper did...cut and paste your remarks over to the Examiner site..it might educate some people about what real 'gun safety advocates' think about firearms, self-defense and stupid gun laws!
    Thx!

    I would Dave, if Disqus and the examiner site would let me post a response.
    But unless I submit to them running scripts on my computer, they won't.

    So until they're more interested in my opinion than their ability to sell my info to their advertisers, we're at an impasse.

    I can log in with disqus, but more scripts are required for the examiner to allow my post.
    That's not happening.

    I agree with jamie6.5.... and I dont think there should be any expectation that anyone needs to create yet another internet user account/password to educate others. I think its great that you get your work published in any publication but until you get on CNN, Oregonlive, CBSnews etc. posting on comments on the Examiner isn’t going to educate folks. Its getting your articles out mainstream that will.
