You know...I'm kinda inbetween. I think we need gun control but not to the point of taking away guns for people who are responsible. I think just a little more gun control than we have right now would help. It's way to easy to get a gun.

Its easier for a criminal to get a gun illegally- then it is for a law abiding citizen to get one lawfully. Gun laws do not work- they have no effect on the black market.

I agree: more guns = less crime.

No matter how many gun laws they put in place, people are still going to find ways to get them, so it's a moot point.

more guns = less stupid people taking up my oxygen.

so you're saying everyone should be able to carry a gun (including minors and children) and it should be legal to shoot people?

Honestly I don't think more guns is going to solve anything. That's like saying more drugs will decrease the amount of people who use them.

Gun laws only remove those that are in the hands of the good.

pretty much right there

I just don't understand how putting more of something out there, which is also giving more psycho's access to one, will reduce the crime rate.

All that I see happening is anarchy

There may be some truth to that. People either use drugs or they dont. Just because more drugs are available doesn't mean non-users would begin to use them. More drugs would lessen the crime rate- hence prohibition. When alcohol was illegalized- crime sky rocketed. Make all drugs legal- then punish those who abuse them. This brings up so many other possible arguments- but consider this- what right does the gov't have to decide what drugs are legal and what drugs are illegal? Alcohol and nicotene are drugs- but the gov't slaps tax on them and says heythese two are okay... not trying to steal your thread but the issues are related. The gov't has no legal right per the constitution to implement gun laws. Nor do they have the right to dictate what drugs are good and which are not- or which are not but worth the risk due to the amount of tax money generated.

Although SVRider's statement was general, I'm going to presume he didn't intend for EVERYONE including minors to use them and for it to be legal to shoot people. Thats not what gun ownership is for. Its for the ability to provide yourself and your family (minors included) with protection. No, I don't believe a minor should be able to walk into a 7-11 and be able to pick one up; however, I would let my 12 year old daughter hold one along with my supervision and direction on the proper use.

so by that you are saying that the people who don't do drugs because they know it's illegal and wouldn't want to get caught....would still not do them if it was legal? Sorry but if they legalized drugs, the usage rate would go up.

I just don't see how adding more of the problem will solve the problem

I'm not saying outlaw them, or take them away. I'm just saying they should go about it at a different angle. Adding more of the problem to the problem will only create anarchy.

My dear, I said nothing about drugs, legalizing them, or the usage rate. I am only referring to my right to own a gun. I have not and would not make any presumptions on anyone else's behaviors. I can only control my own. I know that as a single mother with a daughter living on our own, I want the ability to be able to protect her by any means necessary. I'm 5 foot even and 100lbs soaking wet. My bare hands aren't going to do much good against a full grown man much less two. I am thankful everyday that I live in a country where I have the choice to purchase the tools to be able to provide her with as much safety as possible.
