no, what for? already the american security system is so strong why do the normal americans be allowed for keeping guns? Just to increase more crimes? And if they are so capable of taking care of themselves then for what is the judiciary working?

ok, well the amendments is their so that if your country were to turn on you that you would have defense against it and look at other countries who have had their guns removed all have ended up hurting their own citizens and what happens when someone breaks into your house you know your family is sleeping they are armed dead guess what stopping the sale of guns won't do anything wither they will always be gotten by people who try that will just leave the normal people unarmed and the killers robbers and other criminals armed

I appreciate the point raised by you about individual safety, but I disagree with the solution you gave. For safety reasons, the law should be made strict or the policemen should be trained to be made more responsible and prepared or in any other way the law and order conditions should be made strong. That is the proper solution. Giving away the permission to hand over the guns to everyone will just increase such crimes because every citizen may not use them for safety reasons only. And this just cant be a solution because, in a sense, you are asking to teach robbery to common man in order to prevent robbery? How does this make sense? I am not sure of decreasing robbery in such case, but definitely many will use that knowledge in wrong direction. And how will you justify it's impression on young children? When they see guns at their place, what should be expected from them in their adolescence? And then we cry, 'Crime is increasing'...

yeah, it was a really bad solution now that i look back.but there is nothing a policeman can do if hes not there in time. i mean you could have navy seals as cops but if they can't get their quick enough then what happens. especially really open places were there are allot of farmers people live 30 minutes away from a police station or more. actually although many may believe its increasing crime has decreased sin the 1990's. plus its not going to stop the big things nothing is they'll just go in with a knife if they have to. plus as i said before any country that takes guns away has ended up killing their own people

@Tobar: The debate has been put up here because there is some disagreement with the law. it is necessary that all prevailing laws are correct?

Guns which are small with less calibre bullets which can hurt but not kill can be allowed but not AK-47 or M-16 rifles of-course!

The 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution, that's why Neelam.... To counter an oppressive government as the constitution intends, to right to protect ones self and family, to hunt, to target shoot. Those are just a few reasons. Honestly law abiding citizens have that RIGHT here in the USA.

Depends what guns. I wish that rifles and semi-auto weapons wont be allowed.
