Yes, they should be illegal
No, they should not be illegal
Yes, because people who buy guns are only required to register and then take a course in how to use one[?] They are not given any personality test, coping skills tests, or scenarios in which they may become obstinate very quickly and having a lot of weaponry wouldn't be in their best interest or the folks they harm during their hissy fit.
Why do they need assault rifles? to protect them selves? a handgun can suffice for that need.
I personally believe that the only thing a citizen needs is a handgun.
Guns are a tool but there is no logical reason why we need huge excavators if a simple shovel will do the purpose. I would be scared to death if everyone in the U.S. had an assault rifle.
Assault weapons should be illegal but small guns are non-assault weapons should not.
Guns are tools that enable a quick kill. A citizen doesn't need to have the tools to kill large groups of people quickly. Military Automatic weapons were made by and for military personnel to fight wars not to walk around carrying because some old rule says I can. I don't have a right to buy chemical weapons or biological weapons these are also tools. The right to bear arms is already rightly limited to common sense. Machine guns fall into the outside of common sense realm and IMHO should be restricted to the military.
An AWB is absurd. If you don't believe me, please ask me why and I shall explain
No. If people don't have guns they'll use cars, knives, fists, etc. People who want to kill, will kill. However, people will be a lot more afraid to try and kill someone if they potentially have a gun.
Guns are a tool, nothing more.
If they become illegal than people will still get them. Meth is illegal but people still get it don't they? Also there will be a whole cartel for assault weapons like there is with drugs just like anything that is banned.
Guns are tools. Saying that guns kill people is like saying that pencils make writing errors, cars make people drunk, and spoons/forks make people fat. For one, to get any gun (maybe just your first) you undergo a background check and to have a licence, the same happens. Fully automatic weapons take a special licence specifically for an automatic weapon.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The second amendment did not exclude assault weapons. It was written and passed so the people of the United States could protect themselves from a rogue government that used unnecessary force against them.
It should not. I'm against the government trying to tell people how to act. Adults should have been raised to know better. I think ALL guns should be legal unless it can be reasonably expected to kill more than several people in one round (Such as the Death Star's Super Laser. That should be illegal for obvious reasons). An assault rifle can only kill one person with one bullet unless two murder victims stand together because the murderer's running out of bullets. If you disagree with me, that's your right.
They're not RPGs. Whether you should have a valid ID or a test to get one is different, but there shouldn't be a blanket ban on them.
All gun laws are unjust.
Existing gun laws should be repealed all the way back to the 2nd Amendment. If the government is allowed to have it, then the people should be allowed to own it. "If guns are a symbol of power, then in a Democracy, they should be in the hands of the People."
anyone with a few hours and a phone/computer (did i forget some money) can turn a ar15 to a m16
Just a thought, How did making drugs Illegal work out for ya?
