    I fully believe in the right to bear arms. I don't want to be a sitting duck while criminals continue their illegal buying of whatever they want. People are disillusioned into thinking that gun control will stop the criminals from buying weapons. That's just ignorant. It will only stop the everyday citizens from being able to protect themselves. We don't have a gun problem; we have a heart problem. It doesn't take a gun to be able to kill, even in mass amounts. See the attached article as proof.

    • Because criminals have automatic/semi automatic weapons that were not bought legally

    • But that just doesn't really make sense. If someone broke into your house they're probably trying to take your stuff and they usually don't both you because they're trying to leave. And if you saw them and they saw you then they'd probably try to kill you see how would try even get to your family.
      Also I don't understand how you can live your life in with this much paranoia. I can understand wanting to be protected but I couldn't even imagine a time wen if need a semi automatic weapon. I don't know about you but I've never heard of a house break in with semi automatic weapons.

    • If a gang had ever broke into your home you would understand. The last time just the fear of my m4 was enough to diffuse the situation and for them lie down on the floor until the cops arrived or I would have peppered them with lead.

  • I feel this way based on people. I feel that people have a right to carry weapons (especially considering everything that's going on in the world today). And people should have the right to defend themselves but only in the extent of bearing arms as an absolute last resort. Only bear arms if your life depends on it and its a life or death situation. If you have a chance to defuse the situation through words then do that instead.

    • Actually that is how the law works. If you pull a gun that you carry legally, on someone who is not life threatening then you committed a crime and will go to jail. You have be very mindful of the situation if you are carrying a weapon.

  • Gun control please! I don't see any harm in a simple hand gun but owning semi automatics shouldn't be allowed.

    • The last time they made guns illegal, there was a spike in crime rates. I'd prefer gun control but it makes no difference if people still get hurt. There will always be weapons out there, and some people regret the use of them, but human beings need a way to defend themselves either way. Even if we had swords instead of guns people might still complain lol.

  • I believe in the right to bear arms. Criminals will always have guns. However, I do not mind more thorough background checks on gun buyers. If you notice the ones that commit the gun crimes though are not the ones that are buying them typically. The weapons are often stolen or bought by someone else. The people that obtain these weapons, not the owners whose guns were stolen, for the shooters needs to be charged so it will stop them from giving guns to people who shouldn't have them in the first place.

  • I thought I'd see a picture in this question of actual bear arms. I think I'm going to buy bear arms one day and put them in my house just to troll people.

    Anyway, I don't see that gun control has done much good, except in very slight measures like background checking which are in place most places already. Most criminals, especially mentally deranged mass-shooters, can acquire guns whether or not those guns are technically forbidden to them by law. And with the advent of 3D printing it's going to be easier than ever.

  • I am pro gun-owning with a few conditions.

    Generally speaking though of what I observed among the gun-control people is that they lack understanding of the entire situation. Here are a few points of what they don't understand:

    - Even if you don't have guns, criminals will have them nonetheless and use them. Not to mention there are simple was to build your own guns including using a 3d printer.
    - The 2nd amendment was to keep the population armed in case the government turns back into a tyranny. In most times throughout history totalitarian systems disarmed their population.
    - Most of gun-deaths yearly are due to suicides and thus the statistic is strongly inflated.

    That being said I do think there should be something like a drivers licence for guns where you learn how to use it, how it functions as well as how to maintain it.

    • If you have a concealed carry license those types of classes are mandatory. You have to go prove to a certified state instructor that you know how use the weapon and demonstrate those skills to them in person.

  • You mean the right to walk around with a weapon used in war zones, with very little to stop you from walking into a theater, school, park, church killing how many people you like, all based on a amendment that was written to protect a few colonies (who no longer exists) from a tyrannical monarchy at the helm of an empire (both of which no longer exists).

  • the more guns the more gun deaths, its just math.

    the right to bear arms is mainly for the protection from invasion, america is N and S is isolated.

    it depends on what your values are. i can change my values anytime i want i could want guns in dangerous times and no guns in less dangerous times.

    there appears to be lots of gun violence in the USA and S. America, im unsure what a Northern climate has on the human brain and its effects on gun violence. it may be that the right to bear arms like the USA in Canada if Canada had the same population could be worse than the USA.
