Do gun sports justify the free possession and use of firearms?

  • Guns are used for many thing

    Since the begging of gun history guns are used for sport from hunting to target practice. To all you idiots out there who says guns are bad here is a wake up call you depend on good people with guns (which is probably over half of the people who own guns) to save you but if you get rid of all the guns all the criminals are go on rampages and kill, steal, and rape much much easily. And your all forgetting guns are tools depending on how you use makes you a good or bad gun owner I'm only 13 and I know that if you don't that's a little sad.

  • We use guns for sport

    Since the beginning of gun history we always guns for sprt for istince hunting target practice and in some cases self defense heck im only 13 and i know a gun is a tool depending on how you use is the way it affects if its a tool or not so all the idiots that say guns kill they are really stupid.

  • YES they do!

    As of lately it seems like the world is moving backwards. These are Constitutional rights granted to the American people and there should be no reason that this is even a debate. People should have the option to enjoy things without going through a hassle to do so such as owning a gun and using it without having to do 50 steps to go to a range and face serious charges if one of those steps are forgotten.

  • Why gun rights are important

    If we lost our gun rights in America, guns would become just like drugs. What I mean by that statement is people would still be able to buy guns via the dark web and other websites just like it. Drugs are still accessible to those who use them even though they are illegal. Guns will always fall into the hands of the wrong people, that will never be stopped. So while a family is out and lets say a shooting occurs, instead of law abiding citizens who have concealed carrying permits, your family would not be safe just because nobody would have a gun to stop the shooter.

  • Guns are only as safe as the person using them

    A gun may be able to be used for many different reasons including sports and crimes but these all depend on the person using them. If a person has a motive that would make them use a gun in a crime only then does the gun become unsafe. Saying that guns kill people is like saying that a pensile misspelled a word or a fork makes you fat. The actual problem is the person not the guns.

  • People Will Not Stop Being Killed

    Even if guns are not allowed, people will still be able to access guns through import from other countries and there already are many people who own guns out there, and we can't just take guns away from them. When they die, they could pass guns down to others. Finally, people would suspect that nobody has a gun because they are banned, and if they do have a gun, it would be very hard to get away from when the shooting begins, because they would not see it coming. And if guns were just harder to get, then people who have not committed a crime, but are willing to commit their first, can easily get a gun because we can not read peoples minds and know their intentions with their gun, so there is no point in banning them, all it would do is give people less self-defense.

  • People should be able to own their own firearms

    Although gun sports alone do not solely support the possession and use of firearms, it is one of many reasons for people to possess firearms. The most important reason that I believe supports the right to own a firearm is self protection against violent or threatening criminals. I rest my case.

  • Gun sports do not justify free possession and use of firearms, because they are still dangerous, whatever the use.

    Even though the guns are being used for sports, they are dangerous. They should still be regulated and everyone should be careful about using guns. Without rules, guns may become available to those that may do harm.

  • No, the free possession and use of firearms is not justified by gun sports.

    The right to have a gun, and use it, is not justifiable because some individuals like to use it in sport. Firearms are to be taken much more seriously than this. We wouldn't legalized liquor, for college students, just because frats like to play games that involve alcohol. This is because the issue of alcohol, like that of firearms, is about safety and responsibility. Gun sports has nothing to do with whether, or not, people should have the right to possess/use firearms. Should firearms be banned, those who like gun sports can find something similar to a firearm to play games with.

  • I oppose gun sports justifying the free possession and use of firearms risking general public

    I believe, gun sports are meant for purely recreational purpose only, the design and type of guns or parts used need not be deadly as in case of firearms. There is no need for having any connection between gun sports and firearms, it should be highly controlled. Possessing firearms can be dangerous exposing general public to a greater risk.

  • Guns sports are a sufficient justification for owning a gun because it is like any sport where you need the right equipment to function.

    Guns sports are a sufficient justification for owning a gun because it is like any sport where you need the right equipment to function. If someone is using a gun for sport, that is their choice. They are an adult and should be able to make that decision. Owning a gun gets a bad reputation from the fact that there are certain individuals in society who can't exercise proper judgment and who are a danger to themselves and society. But just because those individuals exist, it does not mean that other's rights to own a gun should be infringed upon.

  • Gun sports do not justify the free possession and use of firearms.

    It is not the sport that allows free possession and use of a firearm. It is our right to bear arms! The right to defend ourselves and our property. The sport is definitely not the justification. A gun can be a dangerous tool in the wrong hands. Unfortunately I have many issues with a possible ban. The reason being is that only the law abiding citizens would listen to the law. The criminals, the ones who kill and maim with weapons, would not listen to the law anyway. They are criminals...that is what they do...break the law. If the government was to take away the right to bear arms as stated in the constitution, the only ones that would suffer would be the proper citizens who would then have no defense against the criminals.

  • Gun sports have never been a justification for personal gun ownership.

    The ownership of guns has been justified as sport weapons and weapons of protection. In dealing with the former, there is not now, nor has there ever been a need to own and have in your own possession, a sport gun. Unless you have the permits, training and an on site firing range, you can use the guns at the range. You can even buy the gun you want and have it held at the range. There is simply no reason to have to use or to be able to have a personal weapon. The right to bear arms has never been settled as to whether it means for individuals or militia. My interpretation would not be in keeping with NRA philosophy, but I am correct.

  • Use of firearms for sporting purposes does not, by itself, justify gun ownership, as there is a better reason to allow citizens to own guns.

    While use of guns to hunt or take part in shooting sports is certainly legitimate, I believe personal protection is a more compelling reason to justify possession of firearms. There is an old saying about the Colt 45: "Be not afraid of any man no matter what his size; when danger threatens, call on me, and I will equalize." The police can't be everywhere and typically aren't there at the moment a crime is being committed. I can say this from experience: show a potential assailant a firearm and he will leave you alone. Much has been said about the Second Amendment and the politics of permitting citizens to own guns but, for me, the bottom line is that private gun ownership helps to prevent the strong from preying on the weak.

  • Only Gun Sports?

    Should you conduct gun sports as a hobby, and rest your ownership of guns on the sport, you may need to change your cause for ownership. Ownership of a gun should only be for protection, at most. Gun sports are fine, but the ownership of guns for the sole purpose of sport is ludicrous.

  • Tools designed for killing humans should not be freely available

    Most firearms have ultimately been designed to kill or seriously wound hostile humans in a situation where it's necessary for standing up for one's rights or interests.

    Firearms should only be available to the common person in cases where possession of one is greatly motivated by surrounding circumstances, such as a prevalence of criminals who possess and use life-compromising weapons to conduct crime. In addition, they should fill extensive mental health and other necessary criteria, and be strictly required by law to keep their weapons unavailable for anyone who does not meet these criteria.

    Sports weapons should be kept at the shooting range, behind closed doors and ample security. Human-killing tools should not be freely available on people or at their homes, where any deranged family member or friend can access them and kill innocent humans.

  • Keep Them Safe

    While I see that gun sports such as target shooting and hunting have a place in society I can see no reason for the free possession of weapons or keeping them in a family home. Can the guns not be stored for maximum security at a gun club or even Police station to be withdrawn by permit holder when required and returned for safe keeping after use. The military keep their hardware in the armory until it's needed then make sure all weapons are returned when training or active service is over and they know a thing or two about handling lethal equipment. I am happy to live in a country where there are strict gun controls and we don't even arm the majority of our police and hope it stays that way.
