The US has a murder rate that is many, many, many times higher than the murder rate in other developed countries whee guns are illegal.
No one has a right to kill anyone else so why do they need a gun.
Also it's far too easy for kids in the USA to get their hands on a gun.

For some reason, many in the US still do not seen to understand the link between lots of people having guns and lots of people getting shot. In the UK last year 63 people died from shootings, whereas that number is approximately 30000 in the US. Yes defending yourself is important but you wouldn't need to defend yourself so badly if there were less guns. Think about it. COMMON SENSE.
Guns should definitely be made illegal. Think of all the poor innocent people whose soul has bee lost due to the fact that some crazy guy got his hands on a fatal weapon. It is horrible. Guns are the cause of many deaths. The only reason guns were made legal in the first place was because people needed to protect themselves. But that was 150 years ago. We no longer need to worry about wild animals, indians, or attacks from the british. So guns should totally be banned, now that we no longer face these problems.
Guns only make things worse. Why compound the problem. Plus people get a power trip from them. Guns don't make you stronger, nor smarter, nor wiser, nor bigger, they only show how dumb a person can be from not being able to logically communicate and change an argument, and turn it into a win win all through logic. Better to use logic than useless arms.
If the Government were to ban private ownership of firearms, the Government themselves would keep their own guns. They would become a Statist Totalitarian Regime that empowers its own civilians. The Government will never give up its own guns. Who would be willing to have their rights taken away, while the Government keeps theirs? Sheep.
Here is an example,
Ban guns = legal citizens are unarmed, criminals remain armed.
Uphold the legality of the 2nd amendment = legal citizens remained armed, criminals remain armed.
The first option disarms the legal citizens and leaves them vulnerable to criminal activity.
The second option upholds the legal citizens right to defend his/her life in the case of criminal attack.
Law: the system of rules that a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members and may enforce by the imposition of penalties.
Law-abiding: obedient to the laws of society.
Law-breaker: a person who violates the law.
By the criminals very nature and subjective view of the law he violates it willingly and often violently without remorse or subjection to morality or penalty.
By this little box of words alone you should want to have the right to defend your life and liberty with the 2nd amendment right to bear arms.
I don't even understand the logic behind this. Obviously people should have the right to defend themselves by whatever means they can afford. If you make owning guns illegal, the only people who would have guns are criminals. The more good guys we have with guns, the safer we'll be. This seems like basic logic to me.
I challenge anyone who thinks guns should be illegal to put a "gun free zone" sign outside their house.
People with bad intentions that have a gun kill people. However, there are many people out there that own guns that use them for recreational purposes such as hunting, trap shooting, skeet shooting, and sporting clays. Just think, if we did ban guns and make them illegal the murder rate most likely wouldn't change that significantly because again, it's the people with bad intentions that kill people and if they have their mind set on hurting someone they will find some other way to harm them even without a gun.
