I do believe that guns should be able to be in a household without there being extreme cautions by the government. It is our 2nd amendment right, and we should not have that taken away from us. It isn't like people that have guns, are freaks and want to go around killing people. If you are in your home, and someone breaks in, what is your top priority? Your survival. Possibly your family's survival too. If the situation is dire, the only way you might be able to save yourself and your family, would be to show that you have a weapon and that they should leave. What about those stories with old people getting mugged? what if they had a firearm and whipped that thing out. I'm pretty sure that they would leave that person alone, so the old person would walk away safely. So with all these pros, and the fact that it is amendment in the constitution, shouldn't we be able to keep that right instead of these nut jobs that are trying to take that away?
I think guns should be banned you know all the killing that goes on in the world and guns kill people plus if the person is unexpanded then that would lead into something devastating injury or death thought this is coming for a hunter I disagree
Yes, there is a lot of killing in the world. But that has nothing to do specifically with guns being in the home. If you banned guns, there will still be bad people with guns. Think off it like this, marijuana is illegal yes? Well even though its illegal, bad people still get it. Do good people illegally get marijuana? No, because they are good people so they don't break the law. Now apply that to guns. If you make them illegal, you are only taking them away from good people. Either way, bad people will get the guns some how. Its only the people who wouldn't get them through the black market, that your taking guns away from. So now you have a society that is full of bad people with guns, and good people without them... That seems like a dangerous society to me. A criminal doesn't care if guns are illegal, they will still use them anyway. Your just taking them away from law abiding citizens. If someone breaks into my house, I would want to protect myself. That's coming from a hunter also.
All right then, and yes you do bring up a good point (and ill say this just to keep it going) but it is people who kill , not guns! If you don't think that, then i suppose spoons make people fat? Then pencils misspell words, and cars drive drunk? No! Its the people behind the guns that are killing. I suppose we should ban hands because they could be used to kill someone. The government just needs to focus on the people instead of the guns.
