Guns are not safe. There are too many accidents involving children playing with guns or accidental discharges due to careless or inexperienced adults.
Too many criminals purchase guns legally and use them to commit crimes. background checks and mandatory waiting periods help to deter criminals while negligibly inhibiting us.
Current gun registration laws are not adequate for law enforcement. To help prevent and to help solve crimes, guns should be registered and characterized before they are use to commit a crime. The only ones that would be threatened by this policy would be criminals.
Semi-automatic weapons are intended for military use and have no business in the hands of civilians for either self-protection or sport.
Where guns are readily accessible, they can more easily fall into the hands of children.
The key to protecting our democracy is not in having armed citizens, but informed ones. Privately held guns would not be a match to our military's advanced weapons.
There are significant loopholes in our current gun regulations. These need to be plugged.
Unfortunately there are many misguided individuals in our society. We as a society would be better off if they had less access to guns.

Guns are their to help you protect the ones that you love. They are the only thing that you can help others with out hurting the ones that you love. SO why not let all people have guns

Who in their sane mind would control the guns of law abiding citizens? I can tell you that I wouldn't. Just take a look at all of the recent shootings: Aurora Colorado, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech. Guess where all of these took place? Places where guns are BANNED. If the teachers of Sandy Hook, the preachers in Aurora, or the professors and students in Virginia Tech were armed to the teeth with various guns, the shooters would have been stopped in their tracks sooner, as the law abiding citizens would be able to seriously harm or kill the shooter, giving killers less options of places to shoot people. But no, of course they would be banned in those places, so killers would be able to shoot the civilians like fish in a barrel. And now you are trying to make a gun ban in the US, considering how killers can't mass murder armed civilians? Are you kidding me now?
