Just throwing this out there, but the vast majority of gun related incidents tend to be due to the "Drug War."

Ending that will help far more then any ban.


This.

Gun control? No you need people control, the gun is a tool, in the hands of different people It becomes a mass murder weapon. Guns should never even exist but look at the state of the world, why allow the rulers to trade arms around the globe and take yours from you? use it wisely and no one needs to give away any rights.

Absolutely not, I'm still surprised people still believe that it's a good thing for anyone to be able to own a gun, especially considering the amount of horrifying gun violence incidents over the last couple years in the US. And for people who think it isn't a big deal take a look at the number of people killed by guns in the USA vs Canada (where I'm from) the difference in deaths by guns is astounding, just take a look at http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/united-states . I mean hell even though it's in the US constitution it was never meant in terms of people being able to own guns to protect themselves from other people, it was so they could act against tyrannical government rule(see the rebellion against the English). Not to mention the line in the constitution refers to state military not individuals.

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Yeah.

I don't own one, but I wouldn't mind if anyone else did.

What? Afraid to get shot?

Then learn to matrix.

Fenix do you know what happens when gun's get illegalized? they go to the outlaws, and criminals have them, and criminals sell them and it would be worse. Do you really believe the ROOT CAUSE of gun deaths is guns? Or is it human behaviour, medication and such? You know almost every gun massacre in America was at the hands of a severely depressed and troubled person who needed serious help which was denied. That was prescribed and had been taking a drug with side effects that are capable of turning people violent?

Either way, if someone wants someone else killed.

They will find a way.

Nope. Guns make it so simple and easy to kill someone. It takes just a pull of a trigger and someone could be dead instantly. Its much harder to kill someone with other objects such as a knife. So much more up close and personal, It take much more of an psychopath to that. If no one was allowed guns death rate would drop simply for that reason. Just look at america shootings, majority of the murderers all got there guns legally. If anyone thinks gun should be a legal right just look at the last shooting, children murdered. If u honestly believe u have right to own a weapon built simply to kill you are lack humanity.

Not only is it a constitutional right. It gives you the freedom to protect yourself, freedom to hunt your own game, and last and most important the freedom to fight the government if you believe they are reigning with tyranny.


Please dont say this bullshit about protect yourself. If I wanted to kill you with a gun. Id should you before you saw it coming, you would have no time to pull a gun out and shoot me, you would be dead on the floor. Guns dont protect you they just help you kill. Yes someone could then shoot your killer but your dead, it didnt protect you, it just help get your revenge.

Oh outdated ideas...

Yes everyone should have the right to own a gun, however only guns that were around when this constitution first came into effect. Lets go, free muskets for everyone!

I'm pretty sure if the government really wanted to go against the people that your guns would be entirely worthless except for killing off the pawns that don't truly matter to them anyway. The government has far better weapons so I would say the guns only give false hope if it even really gives that.

“Nobody is as powerful as we make them out to be.” - Alice Walker, they leech off us for their power, we're too gullible. If we're the 99% and they all came for your guns and we said no, what the hell would they do?

if guns weren't invented america would not exist and many other countries also, if gun weren't around you could still die, and don't think that taking away guns will keep bad people from doing bad things. what would you use if 5 people came into your house with knives and was trying to kill everyone you loved. if everyone were good people then yes there would be no point in violence and the tools that make it easy to kill.
