Its not a matter of "allowing" people to own guns. Those with the guns make the rules; therefore in order to have a free society, one must also have an armed society.

If guns are outlawed then only outlaws would have guns

"There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period."
- Ted Nugent

"But if someone has a gun and is trying to kill you ... it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun."
- Dalai Lama

Guns should be legal...for a few reasons.

-To control the government.
-To prevent invasions.(Having military trained population will deter any country from invading us)
-To defend your property.
-To resist an alien invasion.
-To fight off Zombies.

Gun permits should have a few requirements too.

-A bachelors degree.(Can't have uneducated idiots go on a shooting spree, then again, we can't have masterminds plan and think out a shooting spree)...
-A conscience (healthy mind off of medications).
-A clean record.
-and must be trained.

Wether or not guns are legal...I think people are still going to be killing each other. Matter is, how...If we have guns-it'd be that much easier to kill someone.

Again, guns don't kill people. People kill people...With guns.

Yes they should.

In the United States, I think every person that doesn't have a felony or serious crime under their belt should own one.
In my country, we were founded by a militia of citizens. The right for American citizens to own and bare arms was put in the constitution in case of homeland warfare. In case the war comes to us, we're already prepared.

That of course, is my opinion. I was raised in the South. And we're serious about that stuff.

But I understand the pros and cons to both arguments. I still stand firm with my opinion though.

Anything can be harmful or dangerous if it's misused or improperly looked after.

No matter how child-proof or idiot-proof you try to make something, some moron out there will over-achieve and beat it.

So yes, people should be allowed to own guns.

I've had to really think about this question since at first I kinda liked guns (ya know cuz they blow stuff up and all that crap), but now that I've thought about it, I don't think that the general public should own guns. First of all, by buying a gun, you're supporting the military industrial complex. In other words, by buying a gun, it says to the gunmakers, "Oh people are buying guns, let's make more!" And this cycle only continues until there is no demand for guns. There's already enough demand for guns outside the US. The USA is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world. We make most of the guns in the world and we're the biggest exporter of them. In addition, international gun trade is less regulated than bananas. BANANAS! Doesn't that sound a little strange? Yeah, I think so. As for the classic argument that people kill people and guns don't, well guns make it a lot easier to kill people. If they didn't, then countries wouldn't be using them in their military forces. It's common sense. If a guy comes at me with a sword, I can at least run away, but with a gun there's a chance that I can still be hit. Plus a sword is a lot harder to conceal.This isn't rocket science people. In Japan, ordinary people cannot own guns, and the crime rate is pretty low. You hear top crime stories on the Japanese news being someone sticking ice cream in a postbox. So anyway, buying guns only supports the military industrial complex and promotes war, and guns make it so much easier to hurt people. Thus, the general public shouldn't own guns, they shouldn't need to own guns, and the government (especially the USA) shouldn't spend several times as much money as the rest of the world (taxpayer dollars btw) for their effin' military!

Oh god, don't give them ideas.

But still, I don't see what people gain from owning a gun, sure you can say protection but that just turns into "I have a bigger gun, hence I am right".

Although I do like the idea carrying a sword for protection, at least you have to be more skilled to win a sword fight.

guns kill people, people don't lol.
