I Do Not Support Gun Control

I am also a law-obeying citizen so if you have any doubts, I don't want to hear it. 748 People

    About a week ago I became,

    on this website, embroiled in a "debate" of sorts with an advocate of gun control. It devolved, as internet debates are wont to do, into each of us insisting that the other was wrong and reiterating our own points and arguments ad nauseam. I thought it might be of some...

    "Guns don't kill people.

    I kill people with guns." I heard someone say today. Seriously? Those are the kind of people that shouldn't ever have a gun. They make it worse for real and responsible gun owners to have guns. In a way they put a bad mark on guns.

    What gun control is..

    . To take the way of defending yourselves away from the citizens. It does absolutely nothing except taking away the guns from the good people. The criminals will still receive guns illegally, so ur not going to stop them. It's ridiculous for people to believe otherwise. As well...

    We have the right to bear arms.

    I believe that certain people shouldn't have guns, but responsible gun owners have a right. Have a right to protect ourselves and the right to defend ourselves.
