I am very much pro. I believe that it should be everywhere in the world as it is in Japan or in South Korea. In Japan, it's completely illegal for normal citizens to own any kind of firearm, whether it's an assault rifle or a simple handgun. The only people who are allowed to touch guns are soldiers.
I myself come from a country which is frequently mistaken by many right-wing Americans to be very lose on gun control but the truth is that we actually have a very strict gun control, just like in most other European nations. And say what you may, the statistics prove countries with a high gun control right over and over again. All European nations (and Canada) have a much lower homicide rate than America does and Japan has one of the lowest murder rates in the world. Now, of course you can consider a few sentences on a 250-year old piece of paper holy but if that leads to thousands upon thousands of dead people every year, it's probably not a very rational way of living. The way gun fanatics in America argue and think reminds me a lot of religious fanatics. Of course you can take a few sentences in the bible literally and claim that gay people should be stoned to death but that's not exactly a moral or constructive way to live as a society, so why would you do it?1

For and reason being I lost my brother he was murdered because guns are accessible. And yes I know it's not a gun that killed him it was a person. BUT had that person not been able to get a gun he wouldn't have died. It breaks my heart every day and for the other out there that have been injured or murdered because they so easily got a gun. It's not right it's not fair. I'm forever against guns I hate them. I think in order to be able to obtain a gun you should be free of criminal history or anything of such a matter. I understand people use them for hunting and recreational use but in times of anger them being so accesible it breaks me. Sad face guns suck I hate them.1
