The gun is not the problem. It never was. The problem is that you can easily get one, even if you are mentally unstable or untrained.

The gun doesn't kill the person, it's only a tool. The killer is the one holding the gun with the malcontent/fear to pull the trigger.

while i do agree with your point of view, as I own a couple hunting guns, i wouldn't care if assault weapons are banned, those are specifically made to kill people.

And several news studies have shown it's impossible to stop the off the record selling of guns because people sell them illegally in parking lots. I saw a big news report on it, this one guy was selling a barret 50 cal to complete strangers no questions asked.

and baseball bats, cars, and knifes. All used more in murders then guns

More assaults, yes, but not murders.
If you look at that table, you'll see that firearms make for the murder weapon in just under two thirds of all homicides that take place in the US.

yea thats the united states only because they can get hold of guns, look up rates for other countries that can't for a fair comparison of what it would be like without the guns.

Canada, seems to have very lenient gun laws:
www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/canada - Rougly 1/3

Norway, very lenient gun laws for a European first-world nation;
www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/norway - Roughly 1/10, though this varies wildly because of the low numbers.

Japan, stricy laws:
www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/japan - 1/21.

The UK, very strict gun laws;
www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/united-kingdom - Roughly 1/30.

You have a good point.

Also, you can make anything you can grab into a weapon, fyi.

Hammers, baseball bats, a garden hose, a chain, forks, fire pokers, your fists, ect.

How many of them can hit multiple targets within a matter of seconds like a gun?
User avatar #65 to #61 - taintedangel (01/26/2013) [-]
That is my point.

The. Gun. Is. A. Tool. Just like a hammer.
