• Yes we need guns

    We need guns my cousin died in the Florida shooting, WE need guns to protect us, You should be 21 and have a license. We also need to make smart choices of using guns. For reasons to help not to kill. They societies these days are so imitate and selfish.

  • Families who need the protection won't have access to guns

    The mentally insane people that shoot up schools and all the people who intend to kill others with guns will just acquire the guns someway anyway. You can't 100% ban every single gun in the United States. Think of the Prohibition act, People still smuggled alcohol even when it became illegal. People now would just do the same thing, Except the average citizens who need the guns to protect themselves wouldn't have access to them, And families all over the nation would be without a means of protection.

  • I like Guns

    I think all guns should be allowed just because we all need to protect ourselves and others. If you think that we shouldn't have guns just don't buy them but dont ruin them for the rest of us that want guns. What about the people that live in the woods!, How would they protect themselves.

  • Guns don't kill people. People do.

    You can't argue with the 2nd Amendment, neither can you argue with this simple fact: guns don't shoot themselves, therefore, they do not kill people. The person that shot the gun did. When people buy guns, they sort of sign a kind of contract (not literally) that says they cannot kill people with the gun except in self defense. It's not our fault their are loads of people that decide to break that 'contract.' And now, people want to ban other people from using something that can and will save many lives if it is used responsibly. If guns are outlawed, only bad people will have them. Now, would you rather those people get away with killing innocents, or would you rather those innocents have a chance to stop bad people from killing others? If you chose the latter, than the only way that's really gonna happen is by allowing people to carry guns. The time is now. Which side are you on?

  • Guns don't kill people. People do.

    You see, guns can't shoot themselves. The people that use them are the ones that kill people, not the gun itself. Besides, the 2nd Amendment protects gun rights and states that the need for a well-regulated militia gives the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms. The National Guard may be one of the best military forces in the world, but it can only do so much. So let's just say that the National Guard isn't here. Who's going to defend America? The police? Probably. But they wouldn't be very effective without the support of the people.

  • To protect themselves

    It is completely unrealistic to believe that we will ever rid America of all guns. We will simply just be taking guns away from law abiding citizens that wouldn't be shooting anybody else. If you outlaw guns the only people that will have guns are outlaws. Guns should be allowed in America instead of banning them and leaving citizens as sheep to the slaughter.

  • This is the land of the free

    We should be able to defend ourself's from threats like a crazy person with a gun now you might think if he didnt have a gun he wouldnt do harm but he can easily grab a bat and be a big threat. Fyi people kill people not guns, if anything gunshelp protect lifes

  • Yes we should have them

    It is completely unrealistic to believe that we will ever rid America of all guns. We will simply just be taking guns away from law abiding citizens that wouldn't be shooting anybody else. If you outlaw guns the only people that will have guns are outlaws. Guns should be allowed in America instead of banning them and leaving citizens as sheep to the slaughter.

  • It Is A Part Of Our Constituionla Rights

    That being said, We should not throw common sense out the window. Why does any one need automatic weapons. Why do people feel the need it is their right to open carry in parks, grocery stores, political events, bars and movie theaters. People have the right to protect themselves but not at the risk of endangering the rest of us. German Sheppard's do a better job at protecting, than any gun in my in opinion.

  • It is moot

    There are already 300 million guns in the US so the question of whether they should be allowed is already moot - they are already here, and criminals already have access to them. Creating bans on certain guns or making it harder to obtain them only hurt the law abiding. Gun accidents cause deaths in the US - but far fewer than so many other preventable causes.

  • Guns promote killing

    The freedom of guns allows anyone to just grab a gun and go out onto the street and kill the first person he sees, The psycopath he is. Is this what America needs? To promote a culture of guns and killing anyone just because you want to? I think not.

  • Look at other countries

    Althought we need it for self defense, It's because we are defending against others with guns. If we eliminate guns there is no need for "self defense". So many countries have lower homicides than US because of this. Who gives a fuck about constitutional rights when we are getting killed left, Right and centre.

  • Guns or a terrorist attack?

    In this country, the fatalities of firearms are double that of victims of terrorist attacks throughout the world. Thus, a US citizen is more likely to die a victim of a firearm (1 out of 22,000) than a terrorist attack (1 out of 3.5 million). However, the terrorist threat receives much more attention and means than gun control. Why are we looking for a way to avoid terrorist attacks but the threat that implies that people have access to a gun legally that ends with the lives of thousands of people a year is normal?

  • Guns are used 10 times more for crime than self defence

    The only good reason why America should have guns is because they can be used by civilians for self defense. But guns are used 10 times more to commit crimes than they are in self defence, so it's ABSOLUTELY useless to have guns in America if you want to save lifes. America should not have guns.

  • Why are guns necessary?

    Guns shouldn't be allowed at all. You guys saying that we should be carrying them around to protect ourselves. First of all, if we need to protect ourselves we need to protect ourselves from guns. And instead of making the problem worst by allowing guns we should just get rid of guns. Second of all, innocent lives are being taken away because of guns. I am scared to go to school in fear of terrible things happening because of guns. And no teachers shouldn't be allowed to own guns either because that makes the situation worst. What if the teacher was mentally sick or what if the student is able to get the gun. There are more cons than pros that would happen if a teacher were armed. Third of all, why are guns needed? If you say that they are needed for hunting, there are other easier and less harmful ways to hunt an animal. And guns don't represent America in no way. Do you see people wearing the American flag every day? No! So why should we even carry a gun around? There is no point other than it causing harm. Fouth of all, the constitution. Yes, I know that the constitution is not easy to change (I'm not dumb like those who support gun violence) but I'm pretty sure that if the constitution has been changed 19 times, it can be changed one more time. Fifth yea people already have guns and it going to be hard to get rid of but why to increase the rate of the people who own guns. Sixth , you wonder why terrorist attacks happen. Yea, not every terrorist attack include guns but every time there is a mass shooting, there is always somehow a probability of it being a terrorist attack. Seventh, it's funny how most of the time, it is always a big deal when a person other than caucasian people is apart of a mass shooting. Most Americans blame it on their race. When does the color, culture, gender, or religion of someone affect the fact that there are apart of a mass shooting? Oh but it's not published everywhere and talked about every day when a Caucasian person is part of a shooting. It is not only the fault of whoever caused the shooting but it is the fault of those who allowed shootings.

  • People are dumb

    The second amendment backs me up so don't even argue.
    Schools should require all teachers, and all school officials to carry and be trained to use guns. The number of school shootings would decrease exponentially. In Indiana, schools have required the carry of guns in schools by teachers.(USA Today) in all honesty, every school should fallow Indiana’s lead, there is a very low likelihood of a shooter getting very far with that much security in one place. Teachers do not even have to have the guns on their person; they just have to have in the room out of reach of the students but to where he/she can get to it quickly if needed. There are some horrible people out there who would do whatever they can to hurt someone, and arming our teachers would increase the safety of your children and decrease the chances of a shooter of making it anywhere close to your children. It may not be a sure-fire protection guarantee one hundred percent of the time but it is a whole lot better than the cops showing up eight minutes to late. Do you want the gun in a murderers hand and not in the hand of someone who can protect the future generations of our country, or do you just not care, you just despise guns that much? Many teachers in this country already own guns at their houses so why not let them have them for a great reason?
    In Michigan, there is a silly little law that has increased the rate of murder in that little city. Do you know what that silly little law is? It is a gun ban. In 1929 they started the gun ban and since then the murder rate has skyrocketed. Only 7,640 people in Chicago have a license to have a gun and every year the police in Chicago seize 7,400 illegal guns (The Washington Times). With odds like that in one city, we should leave the law abiding citizens armed so that they can protect themselves against the criminals who are not worried about the gun laws anyway. If criminals were going to fallow the law they would not be criminals, they would be like the rest of us doing legal stuff. Half of America is flummoxed because they are being punished for others screw ups. Why punish the innocent, what did we do? We pay our taxes we have the right to “keep and bear arms.”(The U.S. Constitution Bill of Rights Second Amendment) The definition is described as fallowed. Keep-its mine you cannot have it. Bear-I can have it on my person. Arms-this is a tool for hunting food and competing in sport. Any act to take our guns away is going against the U.S. Constitution which is an act of terrorism which is severely punishable to both foriegn and domestic. If you argue with this than there

  • To live or to die?

    People can get hurt easily with guns. Yes people want to protect their family's and loved ones, but there are people out there who wants a gun to look cool or for fun. People don't care about others especially if they don't know them. There are people who want to protect others and there are those who just want to hurt or even kill others.

  • Less guns Less death?

    Guns are a big problem in society today. When the Constitution was written the guns were much smaller and less dangerous than now where you can fire about 40 bullets in under 30 seconds. They are a danger to people even to the person carrying them. Plus we should use the example from other countries with lower gun death.

  • Guns should not be allowed in America.

    Guns are dangerous and they should not be allowed in America. The second amendment was written a long time ago and it is not longer relevant in today's world. The framers of the constitution never intended for people to be able to posses modern firearms because they are too dangerous.

  • No, they shouldn't

    There's a reason no other civilized country in the world allows the gun violence that we do, and it's not because we're more "free" than them. It's because of a group of backwards idiots clinging to an amendment that is centuries removed from having any relevance in the world surrounding it. Most guns ,most gun deaths. Go figure, it's like having these everywhere is dumb or something!
