Yes, the US needs to get with the time.
No, we have a right to carry guns in public if we please. We don't care if we're the laughing stock of developed countries.
On a side note...racism doesn't go well with it.
I would like to change the second amendment. It would not end-up in outlawing all guns, that would not be the purpose (not to me anyway), it would be an effort to implement normal gun control laws without the constraint of the 2nd.
Most likely modified. While it was meant to be helpful back then, it is now anothe example of something completely out of context.
I wouldn't say to ban all gun ownership, but placing limitations on what you can do with your guns... such as not being allowed to open carry... would be really smart.
Guns should be replaced with tasers. We should have the right to defend ourselves, but tasers will be a more safer option.
For biased polls, I give you exhibit A. Screenshotted. Expect this to get trotted out every time you complain about censorship.
I PREFER having other Countries fear attacking mainland US. I Prefer being able to defend myself.
The thing about the rest of the developed world is that they are more moral than us. We have more incarcerated criminals than any other developed country. So if you are worried about being a laughing stock, we already have that covered. I personally would like to defend myself against those criminals that aren't incarcerated. I don't think a kitchen knife at home could do a lot against someone with an illegally obtained firearm.
Well, taking away the right to bear arms means more than not allowing humans to have guns. It means that as a people, when can not form a militia in order to counter a revolt by the government onto the American population, and we have no right to defend ourselves. This is a huge problem that the democratic party is advocating. Sure guns can be used in violent and inappropriate ways! This is not the only purpose of the 2nd amendment. To abolish it would be an attack on human rights and environmental safety.
Is anyone else getting tired of all these "should guns be legal" kind of polls? They all end with the same people giving the same answers using the same arguments.
Bias poll. The 2nd amendment is right to bear arms for a well regulated militia if you have read it. Meaning the National Guard. So yes. Im ok with that. Not some random unregulated un background checked guys personal stockpile.
No, guns ensure liberty and freedom. The US has never just gone along with what Europe has done, if Europe wants to be totalitarian, that is for them to decide.
