Don't give us guns, but don't them away from us either. Remember what happened with Prohibition?

And if guns really do reduce crime rate, it's only because they reduce criminals.

Prohibition failed because its very difficult to legislate and enforce a law that affects one's actions over his own body. Guns, however, are rarely used on one's self.

I have no problems with guns owners shooting themselves, though. So if that's what you meant, fine.

We're gonna kill ourselves one way or another I guess.

I agree with people having guns for protection, for one if we do outlaw guns in the US I believe along with everyone else that the "bad guys" will find a way to get them. This will always happen same thing with illegal drugs they may be illegal but they find a way here anyway.

Now with people having guns I don't mean AK-47's and any other firearm of that nature... that would be ridiculous.

I think people should have guns for protection but not for illegal use. Thats what people have against it. When a bunch of idiots go out and shoot people, it seems like guns are evil. It is not. For it is the owner that causes the trouble and mock not the gun.

NO ONE should have a gun (other than hunting) at ANY time, criminal or not. i'm guessing no one heard of the virginia tech massacre?

+, if someone needed self defense so badly, go take a karate class. that's what they're there for.

It's pointless to discuss eliminating firearms entirely. The Bill of Rights will never change, and so many people already have guns, you'd never be able to get rid of all of them.

I don't understand why you specify hunting as an activity in which you should be allowed to keep your gun. There's nothing that would stop a gun purchased "for hunting" to be used for something else.

I'm assuming "no one" doesn't count police, armed services, etc.

well, i'm not saying police and armed forces, per say, and i know hunting guns wouldn't be used on actual humans (unless some one went crazy), but there still could be a lot of casualties we could prevent if the public wasn't permitted to own guns.

What you said wasn't worded for hypothetical purposes.

Learn to argue then come back.

Anyways, taking away guns wont stop people from killing people, they will just use other means like knives maybe swords. My point being, stop being idiots and blaming the tools, start blaming the people who use them.

I would say most hunters would not use guns they bought "for hunting" for anything other than hunting, but that doesn't stop robbers, murderers, drug dealers, and people who simply like guns from buying guns "for hunting" and using them for illegal purposes.

I understand what hypothetical means. You're just being naive.
