Im not saying gun laws are the solution, im saying they are part of the solution.
Before you get all US constitutiony on me, remember, when that thing was drafted it was a different time.
A time when you may have to hunt for your meal, a time where you may have to defend your family against vagrants, indians, animals, or sasquatchs. The reason we were given the right to bear arms was more of an insurance policy.
Militaristic states wont let their citizens bear arms because they fear revolt. The Article in the Bill or rights is more like an implied guarantee.
I see what you are saying, but it's impossible to move backwards... Meaning, it is impossible to get to a point in which the world is safer with less guns...
I am very firm believer that more laws are generally never the answer... Sure it looks good on paper... but criminals do not abide by the law, so that's as far as more laws can take it...
And recognize that I am not a 'right to bear arms is a constitutional guarantee' kinda guy... I understand the context in which it was written.

Glad he was able to thwart the thieves.
+2! I believe in life (Even though I do have a gun permit and have for years now) that an eye for an eye (except of course in defence of ones self). I say that if you murder someone for no reason,,,you get murdered,,,if you stab someone to death,,that is how you die. It does work in some countries. In some countries, you spraypaint a car and you get cained..there is NO crime there! My
I can agree with this up to a point... The problem is, as with any system of justice, proof. Innocent people go to prison... Hell, innocent people admit to crimes they did not commit under the pressure of interrogation, mental illness, and whatnot... Therefore innocent people would bear extreme punishments unjustly... If there were a perfect way to do it, I'd be 100% with you...
