How many kids need to die before you wake up to understand normal people DON'T need assault rifles or military grade weapons!?
what exactly do you hunt with a HIGH POWERED MACHINE GUN?
You do understand that you can support the second amendment and support gun control at the same time, right?
Do you really think banning guns would stop violence?
No, but it might slow it down.
I think gun users would get bored and maybe turn to drugs and alcohol
Its not so much about banning guns. Its about not letting crazies have guns, just like how we take DLs away from DUI offenders.
Well many crazies don't have a history of gun violence and to take away their right to use guns without any basis besides mental illness is unconstitutional
I think more violence would occur in it's place
Yeah I agree here I think having people learn to understand each other better is the best solution
That's arguable, but I know what you're saying. Still, a convicted felon cannot buy a gun, although they're still protected by the constitution.
its not about guns its about attitude and having murder in ones heart <br />
tim mcviegh used a homemade bomb to kill innocent men women and children<br />
what we have is a culture of violence and gun control wont stop that <br />
a serious examination as to how we live and think just might
More power to them. Gun control is for people who want to be controlled, and put all their faith in the system, and the government. Every single despotic government in history, from ancient empires, to Nazi Germany, to all the Communist dictatorships, have began by disarming their citizens, it's a historical fact. No guns = People can't fight the gov't if they decide to persecute the people, in whatever way they please.
If the government abuses it's power, and starts persecuting the people? Hell yes I think we should fight them!! Do you think that the NSDAP (Nazi Party,) or any of the Commie dictators, or even the Middle Eastern dictators, would have ever siezed the power they did, if their people could fight back?? No! Guns are FOR the people, in order to defend themselves against tyranny! Look at Switzerland! Almost everybody has guns, and it has one of the lowest murder rates in the world! What about the guy in China who stabbed those kids with a knife? Guns had nothing to do with it, do you think that knives should be illegal? Plus, legality has nothing to do with it. THEY ARE CRIMINALS. THEY'LL HAVE GUNS REGARDLESS OF THE LAW.
That's obviously biased, but even if it isn't, the point remains. Criminals will find weapons, just like they find drugs, hookers, and everything else illegal. Laws against it only stop people who obey the laws. Which murderers obviously don't, lol!
This is a more empirical (non-biased, I mean,) looking site, that I got my info from.
