It doesn't matter, people who want to kill will find a way. Look at Japan(since it was mention before), it's almost impossible to get a gun for most people, instead you have street slashers and other random attacks (toorima).

And I know mostly everyone in the US love guns and would appose my statement


not necessarily , cuz you arent legally allowed to shoot someone unless certain requirements are met (i.e they have to have a weapon, be within 21 feet of you, or it has to be a gang of people beating the sh** outta you) (i have a CCW license and they explained all this stuff) the one i found odd was the instructor saying "if your getting jumped by 6 people and u have a gun, your allowed to pop one of them in the head...and trust me the rest wont stick around"... but basically if someone just punches you or something u cant just shoot them. and even if your getting robbed or something you still cant just shoot them out right (according to the instructor you have to at least give them a chance and tell them you have a gun and blah blah blah....but you cant use the words kill die or death when you telling them to stop whatever theyre doing...)

but i can still see your point, theres always gonna be the dumb shits that just look for an excuse to shoot someone

and my god, for a thread that had been dead for years it came back to life really quick after i brought it to the top of the list lol... people have very strong opinions on this apparently

criminals are, by law, people who break the laws. you can pass all the laws you want about not owning guns but the criminals will still have them and the law abiding people will have no way to defend themselves.

on that note, i feel like even just the fact that people can own guns is a deterrent (how effective it is open for debate) Maybe its because Im in arizona where you can legally walk around with guns into stores and stuff, but i feel like someone is gonna be less likely to try and mug someone or rob them when they know that person could have a gun on them

nah. If nobody has a gun then nobody needs a gun. There are others ways to defend yourself: stun gun (you can get em at 3 million volts these days), mace, brass knuckles, Brazilian jiu jitsu, krav maga, run away. LOL

well said man... and also if you are in rage and you have a gun then their is more chances that you will use it against someone

Posted 9/24/12
I own one, have had a total of 3 before and haven't had any rage issues or heightened propensity to resort to armed assault with a deadly weapon when i get angry. I own one because I can and because it never hurts to have a Plan B.

Taking away guns because a few nut-jobs go misusing them?

I'd love to see lawmakers go after the automobile industry in that same approach. "Oh hey, drunk driver killed a few people. Let's outlaws cars."

Derp.

I don't think people should own guns at home...like..find something else for self defense..chances that you make a mistake with your gun are higher than chances you get assaulted.

guns aren't legal here anyway..If they were I want bombs, toxic gaz traps and lasers to be legalized as well.

yes, criminals dont care if guns are outlawed, thats why the police have hard times with the gangs that get full autos imported from mexico, theyre already going to jail why not throw a weapons charge on top of it. I'll keep my guns and use them for target practice, and the occasional hunting excursion with my dad. And if the time ever comes when i have to use them against my fellow man i only hope i get them before they get me.

Yes. It is a key piece of what the USA was founded on. A powerful defense is always worthwhile. Even though I will never own a gun since that much power is intimidating to me. I'm not for taking away others' right to own guns.
