The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."" (Cornell Law) As you can see, people have the right to bear arms as long as they are in a well organized militia. This is not the case in America. It is possible to purchase assault rifles. For what purpose? There is no imminent threat to our society and even if there were, the national guard and our US military exist for a reason. Allowing widespread distribution of has lead to high crime rates and immense tragedies. As you can see on page 28 http://www.bjs.gov..., gun crime in 2008 was around 12,500 cases. While this isn't a huge number compared to our 300+ million society, without guns, this number would be much lower.

While I disagree with owning high powered weapons such as assault rifles, I believe basic hunting weapons should be permitted. Last year alone, hunters for the hungry brought in 2.6 million pounds of food to needy people http://nrablog.com.... In this way, hunting weapons are good but there is no reasonable need to possess high powered weapons such as assault rifles or high powered pistols.

Are guns good or bad? Guns are neither-it depends on who is pulling the trigger.

Are you arguing for the production of guns? For the existence of guns? For the Second Amendment?
