Honestly, a large part of me wants gun ownership to be illegal.
Why? Because I know people abuse it. If someone has a gun, they're that much more likely to shoot someone out of anger or road rage or whatever. That scares me, and I don't want more death than we already have.
At the same time, even if guns WERE illegal, the people who abuse them the most in the first place (gangs, criminals, whatever) would still be abusing them and everyone else would be left unarmed and unable to defend themselves.

I can't decide which is the better option, but I'm leaning towards the second one.

I remember when people said that **** before Texas had concealed carry. Look how many concealed carriers have done any crime at all! So many!

This site. This site is full of so. many. retards.
It's a comment expressing two things: My opinion, then what I think is the more logical thing to do.
Nobody is ******* reading that second part.
I said it's my fear. Fear isn't meant to be rational. Grown men are scared of god damned spiders. Guess what? Common, every-day house spiders don't. ******* . kill. grown. men.
I don't care how many facts you throw at me, I'm still going to be scared something like that will happen. Because that's what fear is.
Now seriously, either learn to read or **** off. Also, there's literally no need to be douches over a ******* opinion, ESPECIALLY when the person concedes that they're probably wrong.
Grow up.

Relax, Bro!
Guns aren't for everyone and that's cool.
I've open carried daily for years and all the myths you've heard or visualized have never once come to pass. That's my personal choice and I take total responsibility for it.
Just try not to project your fears onto the rest of us and decide our needs and/or try to take away our choice, that's all. Whatever you choose for yourself is totally fine with me.

Reasons why gun ownership should just be left alone

1. There are people in this country that rely on the guns they have to hunt animals for food and pelts so they can live. If we take away their guns they can use alternative hunting methods sure, but do you think they will be able to access those methods and then find out how to use them as efficiently as possible then start hunting again before they start to starve?

2. In a scenario where someone or something's life just needs to be ended how will we end it. Will the police and army be the only people to have guns to protect themselves while we civilians will only have knives, stun guns, etc. This puts the civilians in greater risk of being targeted by criminals or other hostilities, and if in a scenario where the people must take up arms to defend themselves from say, a corrupt government, or a foreign invasion, how will we properly arm ourselves?

3. Banning guns just encourages people to illegally obtain them and will in the end result in a major criminal enterprise increasing America's crime rate significantly because people aren't just going to give up on guns at the whim of the government.

4. What of the guns that people already own, how will we dispose of them, we can't just throw them in the trash because people will just come by and pick them right out to sell them illegally (Refer to #3) And if we have to hand them in to government will we be compensated for the fact we had to pay a lot of money to obtain, service, and use out gun, not to mention firearm licenses etc. etc.

5. Being afraid of guns is like being afraid of sharks or the flu, nothing bad will happen if you just have the know how. Although it is true that you are more likely to be killed by the flu than a gun, and far, far, far, more likely to be killed by a PERSON with a gun than a shark, the threat is still pretty much the same for all three. Take some precautions and make sure they are good ones and then just forget about it...

1. "do you think they will be able to access those methods and then find out how to use them as efficiently" And if they don't have a bow or don't know how to use one? And when did misfiring bows come into play. You sure as heck can misfire a bow, if you are seriously unlucky or stupid.

2.When did I mention peashooters at all?

3.We are americans, we will always fight for what we believe in. The government has banned numerous recreation drugs, set many restrictions on others, tried to ban alcohol, tried to stop underage drinking, smoking, sex, etc etc. And guess what, those laws are still never followed.

4. Yes quite indubitably my good sir. I have payed many thousands dollars to obtain my right to bear arms, to obtain those arms, service those arms, and use those arms, I better get some money. Even if it is only a little.

5. This statement was supposed to say "Put laws in place that restrict who can have guns. Crazies can't have guns, major criminals can't have them, etc. etc." The rest of your response to this statement is above and beyond me in the fact that it is not written in an educated manner.

And if you wish to reply to someones opinions you state yours in a CALM and SENSITIVE manner. Making sure your aren't ARGUING but are instead DEBATING, exchanging relevant pieces of data with your debatee and making accurate comparisons. If you reply to this post make sure it is written in an educated manner.

Also it doesn't hurt to hit the enter key once in a while when making a numbered list.

Good Night, see you in the morning......

More people die from cars, swimming pools and Doctors than from guns, but I don't see you or anyone advocating that we make them illegal.
Remember, if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns and an armed society is a polite society.

uhm, what you said was the second half of my post :/

also, those things you mention are called ACCIDENTS. comparing homicidal deaths to accidental deaths is a really stupid argument.

No, it's not stupid.
