So, US today: We've had a lot of school shootings, homicides and gang shootouts. And why is this? It is simply because of this stupid 2nd amendment we have. Like we wasn't ignorant enough when it comes to school and education and our "glorious" freedom, nope, we also have to carry something around that kan kill another man, or a family just by a click from a trigger. Is it really that important for us to have these lethal tubes with a trigger on them? i mean, if every gun was taken away at the same time there wouldn't be a problem. No "why can he have a gun, i feel threatened and bla bla bla".... Nobody would have a gun, and all those who would be under suspicion for still having one would be placed on a police watchlist. More arguements to come.
I, myself, am completely for the use of guns and the carrying of guns. Consider this, even if the U.S. Government bans the use of guns, crime will not end. Every killer does not use a gun. Additionally, guns do not kill people. If that statement is true, then spoons make humans feel less hungry and cars pollute the world.
I think we can safely agree on, that people with guns kill people too. And no, crime will not end, but there will be a significant drop in killing and shootouts. You can't ignore the data, if you look them up. Countries that are just as developed as the US, but doesn't let people carry guns doesnt have as high murder/shootout/schoolshooting count. No, every killer doesn't use a gun, but i read about more murders commited with a gun than with an axe.
Well, if you ban guns, then you will see more murders with axes, knives, explosions, and any consevable item. You take away guns, then we will have a knife problem. Are you going to take away knives as well? Absolutely nothing will change besides styles of murder. Also, I can foresee events in which people will start selling and obtaining guns through underground or black market vessels.
Maybe we will see murders with sharp objects, but i think the numbers will fall. Because it's easier to kill with a gun, since you don't have to look your victim in the eye, and you can do it from a distance, while with a knife you have to get up close to the victim and stab them. The victim can fight back, eventually maybe killing the murdere. Many people who kill is sometimes not so strong since all they have to do is pull a trigger. And if the guns are gone, then the weak murderes will be scared away because they will maybe lose the fight. As for the buying/selling weapons underground, it can't be stopped. But it can be slowed dramatically, since you can arrest somebody related to a network, and then work your way from there.
