    They Scare Me.

    I had a lifelong friend get killed accidently by a gun three years ago. He was a beautiful soul, and had some moron not been showing off his gun in the same room, he would still be here.

    Close Encounters

    I've had way too many close encounters with guns -even here in Australia, where we have pretty stringent gun laws. My first experience at the wrong end of a gun was as a junior reporter on a country newspaper. I was sent to a tumbledown farmhouse in the bush to interview a...

    I have to say being Canadian I am bombarded

    with American News and events. It saddens me that I have to see the ignorance behind the laws that the NRA tout. The right to bare arms is such an old idea the it's keeping the country in barbaric times. The amount of innocent people shot by the use of this idea is ridiculous...

    Please Do Not Shoot The Clown!

    Hate???

    I'm not sure what is wrong with people, but guns are inanimate objects. Why the hate?I've have used a gun in a defensive situation, so I can't get on board with those who want to ban them. Sorry.

    You Can't Take Back A Bullet

    I grew up with a lot of drug dealers and bikers where guns were commonplace. I never experienced guns ever fixing or solving any problem, only causing irrevocable damage, death, and worse problems ever escalating in a downward spiral of retaliation. I've seen friends kill...

    Guns Take The Fun Out

    Guns take all the fun out of killing! You don't get to enjoy the fear in the eyes and hear that last gasp for life escaping your victim's lungs as they slowly die. Knifing is so much more intimate. There is no chance for the victim to escape a bullet fired from a kilometer...

    Bang, Bang.

    I hate guns. I mean, anyone can pick up a gun and just shoot someone with it. Is that something we really need? I mean, I understand there might come a time when you need one to be able to defend yourself, but other than that..what is the point? Blah, guns can go...

    Guns In School

    Guns Are Tools . . .

    nothing more, nothing less.  Hating guns is like hating cars, only more people are killed every day by cars than by guns.  Guns can be used to do good or do evil.  Hate the people that use guns wrongly.

    Two police officers shot to death in retaliation

    I am proud to live in Australia,

    mainly because it is a country where guns are not legalised for all. I think America's gun laws are heavily outdated, and compromise the safety of the people they supposedly endeavour to 'protect'. I've heard it all, with numerous people saying its the person behind the gun, not...
