People with previous criminal history should be restricted from owning guns. People who have been convicted of violent crimes should be restricted from owning guns. People who have mental disabilities should be restricted from owning guns. People who are not able to complete a safety course outlining the care and use of guns should be restricted from owning guns.
Some may say guns protect people, but there they also kill people. It is a double edged sword. Canada prohibits the use of tazors pepper spray etc. I think they should offer additional means of defence but not allow people to own a firearm. Look at the MASS shootings in the US. Unless we want our society to mirror theirs I say increase or maintain gun control.
Dont take away our culture, i wouldn't take away yours. This is a very serious deal for me, if i cant own guns easily in Canada, i will definitely move to a place like Switzerland where guns are everywhere. Guns protect people, and after all, criminals wont listen to a gun law.
Everyone should have the right to own a firearm. The world can be a dangerous place. The government would generally like people to be defenseless, and thus dependent upon the government for protection. The government wants more power, and to be like they say, big brother. There is no reason to restrict gun ownership, but to take power away from the people and transfer it criminals, thus increasing public demand for expanding government. Canada should not restrict gun ownership.
