Seeing as there's another ********* down there, I shall weigh in with my non-committal, balanced view.

Stricter gun laws will help to reduce the very number of domestic shootings (both deliberate and accidental) and murders by firearms.

Stricter gun laws will not stop insane people doing insane things.

Basically, it can be a good or a bad thing, so... yeah.

you arent being non-committal because while one thing is an opinion for stricter gun laws the other isnt an opinion against it but rather a general thing

Well if murder is such a problem, why don't we make it illegal? *heavy sarcasm* Look, this law really int going to do anything except to reduce the number of legally owned guns and increase the number of guns owned illegally. The people who own illegal weapons don't give two hits about the law because more than likely, they are using that gun to break the law.

Essentially, the point of having stricter gun laws is to make it harder for people who want guns for the wrong reasons to get them.

The alternative is to make it easy for them. Of course, that means people who want guns to defend themselves will be able to attain them. But at the end of the day, giving everyone guns and saying 'Welp, its fair game now!' is ******* barbaric. that's not the kind of world we should be working towards.

Also, I don't see how anyone believes guns can be defensive. If a criminal wants to shoot me and I have a gun, that's not going to do a lot when he shoots me first because he cares less about the consequences.

Most places have stand your ground or castle laws that allow you to kill a perpetrator with no consequence and you should never point a gun at someone unless you intend to shoot. Threatening a criminal with a gun pretty much tells them you won't shoot. Not saying it's the best way to go about things, but if someone breaks into my house, there are going to be a few .40 caliber rounds headed their way.
