It has been proven that more guns leads to leads to less crime. Just look at the town of Kennesaw , Georgia. Kennesaw has a law requiring every head of household to own a gun. And because of this law, Kennesaw has a violent crime rate 85% lower than the national and state averages. Then look at DC where there used to be a strict handgun ban, in DC gun crime is far above the national average.
Every home in the world does not need a gun. The only reasons I think that people should have a gun in the home is if someone hunts, is a cop, or part of the military. Other than those reasons, there is no point of having a gun in your house. It is unsafe.
I think more guns leads to more unnecessary violence. Guns should not be giving to anyone unless they go through an psychological evaluation and some classes to teach you how to properly use a gun, and where you can carry your gun also places where you should never bring your gun. We need to be more cautious on who give gun permits.
Every home in America should not have a gun. We need to stop and rethink the whole idea of the right to bear arms concept in the United States. People should start putting money spent on guns, and put that towards their educations.
First of all, more is not better in this case. Most people who buy firearms aren't properly trained to use them. They don't know how to properly secure their weapons. This causes unneeded tragedies, because children have access to them. And, gun owners don't gain more security with a gun, they gain more paranoia. It creates more and inevitable danger in the household.
I think that gun sales in the U.S. need to be highly justified. Not only the cool off, or wait time (Brady Law), but there needs to be proof of gun safety and proficiency course that are taken, in order to purchase the weapon. We can't just sell guns to every day people without cause.
Lastly, I don't think Congress used their brains with some of these gun laws. You don't need hollow point bullets (exploding) to kill deer, you don't need them to kill anything, a regular bullet will do the job by itself. Those should be banned totally. They didn't think logically when making the laws. Plain and simple.
All of this extra money that we spend on guns and bullets should go into educating our children. Educate them to use common sense, like locking doors, so that thefts don't happen. We could pay our teachers more then.
A gun in every home is just going to create an unwanted militia, and headaches for everyone all around.
I dont agree with guns, it leads to violence, killing innocent people. This is the only country that has the most school shootings and more violence with guns. People that need medical help and that are unstable should not have a gun, people should not sell guns to every single person that walks in. Also they should have more control on who buys guns permit, they should not be allowed to give gun permits to mentally -handicapped people. Even children can play with guns, when the guns are not safely stored and locked. The children can shoot themselves or other people by accident because the parents were not being safe and did not think of what could happen, when they didn't secure the guns. People simply should not own guns, it just leads to violence, killing, and suffering of losses.
If every home had a gun robbers would carry theirs around with them and if the home owner had his gun out and met the robber one of the two would die so the death rates would rise conciabrlly
and if you leave a gun out a kid could grab it and acdently shoot his friend in a game.
Lets be honest we all know people who we could not trust alone with a stove or oven, it should be obvious that giving them a gun they will shoot their eye out. With domestic violence, people with more and more anger issues, and self-medicated mentally unstable people we need to keep guns out of most houses. There will always be people who act responsible and have common sense, but given a dangerous weapon will find a way to hurt themselves in the process.
