There should be more government supervision for these things, and if it is going to happen it shouldnt be obtained easily by youths

Guns are boring, they take all the fun out of killing. Anybody can shoot a gun. They should ban them from the whole planet, and just make it legal to carry around knives, axes and swords around.

Yes think about who would have guns if a law passes saying you cant have guns only the bad guys would have them.

A spoon can take lives... Am I to believe that you think people shouldnt be allowed to own spoons either?

Also, you are incorrect about owning guns in the UK. Its legal to own a firearm in the UK, you just have to have proper licensing.


To obtain a firearm certificate, the police must be convinced that a person has "good reason" to own each firearm, and that they can be trusted with it "without danger to the public safety or to the peace". Under Home Office guidelines, firearms licences are only issued if a person has legitimate sporting, collecting, or work-related reasons for ownership.

Any person who has been sentenced to three years or more in prison is automatically banned for life from obtaining a firearms licence.[34] Similarly, persons applying for licences with recent, serious mental health issues will also be refused a certificate.

A visitors permit is available for possession of firearms without certificate by visitors to Britain.

It feels good to know that there are people in other countries that dont know the laws in their country. Glad its not just some Americans that dont know their rights.

The gunman at the school had a single shot bushmaster AR and two pistols that his crappy mother owned and taught him how to use. Poor parenting helped that kid accomplish that atrocity. If guns were banned in the US and his mother had illegal guns and taught him how to use them the result would have still been the same. Shitty parents make shitty kids.

As far as our age gap being the excuse for not knowing about things of this nature.... Girl, stop! We're only 6 years apart and when I was 21 I was just as knowledgeable about firearms and the laws in my state and country as I am now. I just have a thirst for knowledge, I guess...

Should people own guns for protection?

Should be carry guns on their person either in the open or secret?


I say yes they should own guns for protection and carry guns in the open, but not conceiled guns without permits.
Gun permit for guns in the open should be easy to get. People should get greater time if they shoot others with their gun out of anger or unjustified fear.


Wow talk about an open question. as in "how long is a piece of string?"

I might be able to respond with greater brevity if you narrowed things down a bit.

People is a very broad brush. unless you're a hard core racist or someone who thinks say... criminals or religious nuts aren't people... then it's at least every single human being on planet earth, plus the folk on the international space station.

Guns. Technically speaking Guns are smooth bore tubes for launching shells. the smallest Gun is a shotgun. all other guns are things you need a truck or a battleship to carry around. even if you expand that to include handguns and rifles and (sub)machine guns. Then you are asking if people should be allowed to own anything from a concealable pocket pistol to the weapons off the Battleship Missouri.

and finally who is going to allow this? who is for that matter going to NOT allow this. We don't have a world government there are some places in the world where we don't have any law at all. And others were the law requires that almost everyone has a gun in their home.

I'm not asking these questions to challenge you. there's important distinctions to be made if this is going to be a coherent debate.

For example I'm in favour of my of my own country's firearm restriction laws, but not all of them. Depending on what we are specifically talking about those who disagree with me will paint me as a right wing NRA looney. or Pinko Lefty totalitarian. I don't think I'm either. but unless we speak using specifics. this conversation will get, and probably HAS GOTTEN out of hand.

Wasn't there a petition to the US government to build an own death star?
So why no guns?

Depends on what you mean by 'personal protection'. If you live in the middle of nowhere with animals like bears and such around then I see no reason to stop someone having a shotgun or something. If you just want to shoot some guy for being in your house, thats a totally different proposition

I'm not so sure. By what right is 'some guy' in your house? Why shouldn't you protect your home?
