police force cant be everywhere, every time to protect us...and so in those cases we must have something with which we can protect ourselves in dangerous situations. we can do that by keeping guns with us.

First of all good luck and I hope this will be an interesting debate.

It is a lot easier to commit homicide with a gun than with a knife or any other melee weapon. Due to the guns nature of being a fast, ranged weapon it's so much easier to stand a couple feet away and shoot somebody since they can't do anything about it, then try to stab someone at close range. Also, the reason why we need to defend ourselves with guns is because the killers have guns. If we don't allow guns to anyone (and keep hunting guns at a hunting site ) the killers will have a harder time getting a gun and using it to commit homicide. Yes, there will be some people who get guns other ways, but this will decrease the population of people who have guns, which means less people murdering people with guns. I agree that police enforcement can't be everywhere, but if a cop sees someone with a gun they would automatically arrest the man if no guns were allowed, preventing a potential homicide.

I live in an area where most people own guns. They have never been a problem. Only in inner cities where government rules is gun violence a problem. And liberals do what liberals do. Try to fix the problem with laws that make no sense,They confiscate the guns from the folks and that leaves then defenseless.Then their liberal policies create poverty and entitlements, which creates an atmosphere for crime.

I would go as far to say that police were not first responders 90% of the time. The victim was. Why are not all the instances when a person was not killed because he/she had a gun.Because it does not fit the liberal agenda to confiscate all guns from those who could stand up to them when they take over America.Or try to.

The only ones afraid of the folks having guns are criminals and politicians, and the low-information voter.
