    Anti-gun supporters are uneducated. Only a fool blames inanimate objects for their problems. Blame the people not the object.

    Re: Are you for gun control? Why or Why not?

    I don't think it's a good idea, i think there should be restrictions on items purchased such as types of guns that would not be necessary. The selling of weapons should be monitored more closely, but criminals will have the guns and items they want no matter what the law is, the good people that need them for defense in turn wouldn't though.

    We have that. In order to have certain high caliber rapid fire guns you have to have special licenses. You can own a machine gun but the FBI is going to look into a whole lot before you can even get it.

    We have a national background check but many are NOT required to report all issues to it. Many murders, thieves, and mentally ill are not even in the national background check so it would approve them for guns. They aren't working because congress passes laws but doesn't fund them so they only hurt legal citizens. We have a LOT of gun laws on the books right now that no one follows because no one funds them. More laws won't help if we won't enforce our current ones.

    For the sake of the society's safety...I'm against it. People need to be more independent. Forget guns but go with fists.

    Less invasions, more equations.

    It is actually safe for society. When the criminals have guns they have power. When Citizens have guns they are equals to the criminals and outnumber them so criminals lose their power. Criminals are out to kill/rob/rape/etc and you have to be able to stop them. However it would be nice if criminals were only armed with fists.

    In Switzerland, where most everyone has and carries guns around, very few crimes are committed with guns because it is far too dangerous to be a criminal with a gun in Switzerland. They prefer knives as they don't get shot as much then . One of their last mass murders occurred in one of the few no-gun zone they had in the country, in their parliament.

    Hum.... If guns prevent just one invasion they would pay for themselves in saved lives.

    Heres some video for thought:

    Re: Are you for gun control? Why or Why not?

    It was never about outright abolishing guns but it's just become one the amendments that's being exploited for all the wrong reasons...why does any private citizen need an AR? I get hunting rifles to an extent I'm all for the Bill of Rights but common sense is in order come on!

    No one has assault Rifles. Assault Rifles haven't been sold to civilians for decades. Don't listen to the media as they have no clue what an assault rifle is. They cannot even get the terms clip and magazine correct -_-;;

    Watch this video for some facts:

    Why does a 4'8 cute-as-a-button girl weighing as much as my thigh need to drive a double-axle Ford truck with an engine that must have come out of a diesel locomotive? I'm exaggerating a tad on the engine - but I've seen it.

    All hell would break loose if we actually required people to justify their vehicle purchases or enacted a law that imposed a speed limit in the car's electronics system (that can be done, quite easily, by the way). Why, pray tell, does anyone need a vehicle that can break 85 miles an hour?

    Think of the costs these things impose. Criminals and heavy-footed fools can fly down the interstate at over 100 miles an hour... and if the police want a hope in the world of catching them - they need to have vehicles that can travel a healthy margin faster... those are high-performance vehicles that come at a high cost to state and local governments. Not only that - but the faster vehicles are going, the more likely traffic fatalities and injuries are (increasing costs to insurance and medical systems that are now being propped up by the government, thus justifying laws to reduce government expenses... which is why I'm against government involvement in those sectors, but I can't deny the reality that ruining everyone's fun would reduce costs).

    An "AR" - or, in my case, the 6.8mm ACR I am trying to get an order for, is no different than a performance vehicle that people are allowed to buy. It's blatantly capable of doing many illegal things, and less than 0.1% of everyone who owns one has a legitimate -need- for it.

    But I've seen Spyders and other such sports cars being passed on the highway by some Prius in a hurry. Hell - I've seen them backing traffic up on the highway, before, going under the speed limit (obviously not because they lack the capability).

    Likewise, I can keep my fancy rifle stored away with all of its unnecessary, excessive features, and use it responsibly at a firing range or in proper hunting settings.

    Unless you honestly want to sit here and try to defend the common sense of people buying cars that go fast enough to cause cars traveling in the same direction (and lane) to quite literally explode from the force of an impact, alone. And then try and say: "It's their right to buy a car..." - when the Constitution says, quite plainly, that the right to bear arms shall not be abridged. That means that right will not be shortened, curtailed, trimmed, slimmed, or any other synonym you can fit in there. It would require an amendment to the Constitution to pass more restrictive bans (technically, the previous 'assault weapons ban' was unconstitutional and lay outside the authority of the office signing it).

    If you chuckle-heads get to take away "assault weapons" - I get to take away sports cars. Any car caught speeding on the highway will be immediately engaged by Cobra or Apache gunships - a single AGM-144 Hell Fire will permanently render the vehicle inoperable. The police force can be equipped with Corollas or something and just defer high-speed chases to Predator drones. The driver poses an imminent danger to the U.S. and qualifies under the current drone policy constructed by this presidential administration for elimination by precision ordnance.

    Hey, if I have to live in a draconian fascist world... I at least want to have some fun killing people doing blatantly stupid things. Don't take that away from me, too.

    Healthy people can enter unhealthy and destructive states of mind for a time period long enough to cause irrepairable damage.

    Here's the thing. I will never store a loaded firearm. The closest I will ever be to this is carrying a loaded magazine on my person with my rifle (or handgun) stored separately from my stock(s) of ammunition. Should trouble rear its head - I can be ready to go in a relatively short order (while also rendering the firearm useless to anyone who may get a hold of it without authorization). That same "short order," though, is longer than the usual amount of time it takes to recover rational thought from a rage-induced state of mind.

    Meaning that if I end up "getting pissed and killing someone" - they did something the likes of which I've never dealt with before, or that I had weighed the options and made the conscious decision to hunt them down and kill them.

    None of which is really relevant to "why people shouldn't have firearms."

    Because I, again, ask why it should be possible for people to drive around 1 ton chunks of steel and aluminum with an average of 15 gallons of incendiary liquid and engines powerful enough to drive these rolling missiles in speeds excess of 180 miles an hour.

    I think practically and efficiently.

    What matters is who survives. If I come to blows with you in the street - it's no different to me than if you were pointing a firearm in my face. The two situations are identical and I will utilize everything in my disposal to end the engagement with as little risk and injury to myself.

    Because if it comes to that - you are threatening my life and existence. It's not about sportsmanship or macho expressions. It's about survival.
