Uh yes. I believe it can be used for protection and self-defense. Guns don't hurt people, people hurt people. Period.

Are you saying that if guns were made illegal, then the illegally owned ones would disappear?
Also according to one source, 39.2% of all guns used by inmates were bought from an illegal source.


In the states.. I doubt it. Here in places without quiete that level of proliferation perhaps yes. I don't know, and I'm not sure I agree with the person you quoted but... on the other hand.

you have 7 times the violent crime per capita that my country has. and assuming around 400 million to our 40 million people, 10 times the Capita

that means we hear about crime in the US 70 times more often than we hear about it at home.

There are more ways than one to kill. Poison, cultured disease, homemade explosive, construction vehicles, blades, fire, a man with enough hatred or loathing in his heart will find a way. You should all feel good that people aren't cultivating deadly diseases. You know easy it would be? Do you know how many diseases there are and how the world is always on the cusp of a new biological outbreak? No? OK. Everyone should just chill about guns and worry about the real dangers. Instead of thinking 30 dead, think...the hundreds of thousands. I know, I sound like I've seen too many movies. All it takes is someone who has even a basic amount of training and the right materials, enough hate or political ambition, and there could be mountains of corpses.

Yes they should, how many psycho rogue governments have there been who have disarmed their people and slowly just took them out through out the decades with snatch and grab tactics which created thousands of cases of missing people. Guns are a necessary evil and in the right hands someone could save your life, to all those passive people who don't like guns cause their scary... seriously go **** yourself you are obviously too god dam naive to understand the argument and if people are fooled by these suspicious shootings lately cause the idiot box keep changing the story (which is obvious bullshit) seriously **** off from this thread entirely. This is a serious discussion that is meant for people who understand why the 2nd Amendment is being attacked, Obama and his crooked Business friends want complete control just like Stalin and Shitler and Mao had it (Russia,Germany,China) and look how many decades the governments militarized police, raped,murdered, abduct and sell into slavery the citizens. It's still going on too depending where you are in that part of the world,since those countries can't clean up the mess of the past which was obviously created to seek control. People would have a better understanding of this if the united states government didn't hide everything like stupid little brat.

To quote an old saying, when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

It is my firm belief that guns are only a tool. The active force behind the gun is the person using the thing. Drunk drivers kill more people than guns do, but do you hear anybody screaming to ban cars? And what about 9/11? Anyone wanting to ban airplanes? I used to own a couple guns myself, but I had to sell them because we were flat broke at the time. I plan on getting one soon for personal protection. I am a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment. Just about anything can be used as a weapon, be it an axe, a shovel, a rope, even a pencil. These may not be quite as efficient as a gun, but the fact remains. Anyone with some smarts can turn anything into a weapon. I plan to keep me and mine safe.

If Americans they a look at western countries where guns are illegal you will see you are actually a lot safer without a gun. Because there would still be illegal guns, but far less. A lot of illegal guns where once legal.
It's also feeding fear and coming from fear.
Also, in most cases you would not be able to use it.
If someone points a gun at you at point blank you give him your wallet.
If you don't he has your wallet AND your life.
That's my opinion, yours may differ.

Yes, people should be allowed to own guns. Responsible people who understand the dangers and know self constraint. Unfortunately most people are idiots.

Carrying guns in the open? Are you a fucking moron?

I own guns, I have a a couple of shotguns, a 22, and a handgun. The shotguns and the 22 are locked in a gun safe the handgun is in the kitchen on top of one of the cabinets it is used for protective reasons and it is not allowed to leave the house. So yes people should be able to own guns as long as they aren't homicidal maniacs then it shouldn't be a problem.

I think every person should have the right to bare arms, every man needs self defense to protect agents the unknown evils they may have to face one day. We can't always rely on the police force; therefore I think its a sufficient and necessary plan B

To be honest people should own guns all they want if there of age and want one for whatever reason hunting/self protection ETC. Just because we keep hearing of people going off the fritz going on shooting frenzy's doesn't mean everyone is like that... Those kind of people have weak wills and give in to there temptations like a bunch of wild animals with no decency for the civilized. They need to put more funding into learning more about mental issues and ways to help people with those issues and temptations. If you give into your temptations by harming or killing others you are weak and should be sent to the darkest isolated room for all of eternity until you rot in hell.

This is one of those topics that have a lot of reason for both yes and no.
Personally i say yes because of the simple fact that wether the government bans them or not, criminals will still have guns and will fully have the knowledge that the person they are about to rob or whatever will not have one to protect themselves. It is just making it easier for them.

Thats all i have to say about this topic.

Personally I don't care what people do or don't do with their guns.
I just want working replicas of Revy's pistol's on my wall. If I can have those just to look at you can ban guns and hunting with guns till deer populations explode.
Besides swords, crossbows, bows, atl-atls are wayyy cooler. Let's at least kill each stuff with cool looking weapons.

I believe people should carry guns for protection but be very cautious of where they decide to hide gun.[r many kids or teens have gotten shot or killed others with guns because people been careless to hide very well.]I would also think that it should be secret.No one needs to know you have a gun or any short of weapons because people could get scare or want to use it for any other deed but for protection.
Not only this but a person in the streets[A delinquent] could easily find a gun and buy it from someone else and can use it to cause harm, and no matter what the government does to stop it[As in making it illegal] people will always find a way to have these things.
