It's a pretty damned obvious given that you, the bearer, should have at least some concept of responsibility and a good set of morals, in my honest opinion. I mean, be serious here. Would you rather the gun be in the disgruntled fists of some two-faced psychopathetic (made that up just now) madman of a killer, or in the wise hands of one whose self-control and morals are as resolute and peaceful as an ancient samurai from early Japan?

NO GUN(s)

That is the worst invention that man ever invented a GUN. Many lives had been lost. Country and nation suffered by that egoistic sign of power. Besides a real man do not need a gun it's like bringing a knife in a fight against a child to put it in simple abstract.
Individual do not need a gun just to protect themselves in danger or simply a reason of self defense.
A gun will only make the situation worst. Even, the authority that have gun as a means of protection and a tool in enforcing the law admits often it complicates things rather than solving it.

Depends.

I own a gun.

Yes it's real. But it's an Precision Air Rifle because I do target shooting.

I don't need a permit for it. And I am authorized to shoot it because we have strict rules about handling

But yeah don't own an illegal firearm without the correct qualifications or permits

With the amount of guns already out there, it would be stupid for someone, not to own one for protection.

Research the founding fathers real reason for the 2nd amendment and then protect it at all cost. It's in all of our best interest to protect yourself against all enemies foreign and domestic. And remember, most convicted criminals who have already lost there right to have firearms have illegal firearms and certainly new laws will not change that. The war on drugs has done nothing to stop drugs in this country and the war on guns will do nothing to stop gun violence. It will only serve to allow the government to take away yet another right of the people.

Yes. Certain people should be able to keep guns.
They just need to do a better background check on that person.

And always remember,
guns don't kill people.
PEOPLE kill people.

I would rather be killed by a gun then be stabbed, choked, drowned, or burned to death.

I don't know about the rest of the world but America lives in a moral-less (not saying completely void of morals) society where any semblance of moral's is automatically assumed to be religious psychobabble. Morals and Ethics (in the most general sense omitting religion) should be the first thing taught in schools right next to economics and financial planning.

Guns don't kill people, moral-less societies with guns kill people.

Guns? Yes.
An armed society is a polite society.

The best type of gun control is hitting your target.

Those things being said, a neat statistic, in countries where the gap between the richest and poorest citizens is largest, there is more violence.

There is more to the conversation but I'm getting tired and I want to go to bed..

Any situation where someone has access to a gun is a situation where the gun can either be used in anger or in self defense. Having a gun available can entice people to commit acts of murder or suicide before they've calmed down and become more rational.

A gun is more deadly than a blade. An unarmed man can defend himself more easily against a blade.

A gun is probably the only viable self defense weapon against aggressive bears, and are useful against other dangerous animals.

Guns are almost useless for self defense if they cannot be carried. They have only limited use for home defense if they are not carried.

Any sort of gun control law changes will greatly impact the firearm industry.

We should have "freedom from" angry people shooting us, but we also should have "freedom to" own and carry firearms.

It's a lot to consider. There's not really a clear-cut right answer.
