What is your standing on Guns? [Aside from use in War/Police work] My personal opinion that any civilian use of firearms should be prohibited. If people have access to guns, people have another [more powerful] means of killing someone. Lest not forget those who have fallen at the hands of people who have had access to guns, who were mentally unstable. Dimebag Darrel, John Lennon and countless people have been shot. Fine they could kill them with a knife. But with a gun you are given a powerful and ranged solution. Again, the Washington Sniper victims. What is worrying is that gun use in the US is a very much regular thing. Now not to point any fingers, but on this forum alone, many have had experience handling weapons. Now I'm not saying they are going to go on a rampage. But is it really right that a civilian should have a weapon capable of killing with a powerful weapon. Aside from defending your home [which I think is somewhat stretching the defintion of defense], I see no point in people having access to fire arms. Your opinions?
guns are wrong, unless protecting your country from the leeches! if so its perfectly ok to blow them away out of the UK with a .44 Magnum Python! (though the law does not agree)
been through this already... a million times....
1.Yes we should be allowed to own guns. 2. People need weapon saftey before owning one. 3. Depends on where you live. 4. You don't like guns don't buy them. 5. It's our right to own them. 6. Criminals will get guns if they are illegal or not, in fact most have illegal guns. 7. Banning guns will not help anything and will most likely NEVER happen in America. 8. I will protect my home and family with a gun, and you with a phone. Good day.

Im an avid hunter, I have lots of guns, and have shot lots of guns. True, there are those who shouldnt even be allowed to look at guns, but its not guns that kill people, its people that kill people. With or without guns, people will die.......
I'm sorry but thats just false, "guns don't kill people, people do". Well if the guns weren't there maybe they wouldn't. And as for Beef. People may need "Weapon Safety", but your gun could be stolen [may seem unlikely, but you'd be surprised how easily it could happen]. And with no guns there'd be less need to "protect" your family. Personally, if your welding a firearm, your protecting nothing. And criminals may still get guns, but it will be harder for them to get hold of them. I mean it's like banning anything, if people want it they can still get it, but it's harder to get. The problem is people's attitudes, they think it's protection, but it's only protection from others with guns, I think some people just turn a blind eye to thousands of deaths caused by guns. EDIT: Azzer, who are the Leeches?
"leeches" = people who abuse the country, like chavs and immigrants!

does the gun majically get up, load itself with bullets, fly around and then shoot itself??? And people can kill others without firearms......
If a person breaks into your house, you have a gun and kill him, your not protecting anything??? Of course you are, yourself and your family. Guns are outlawed in Austraila, but its fairly easy to get them.....

If I cant kill someone who breaks into my house with a gun I will use a knife or anything else that I find apropriate, if there's nothing else apropriate then I will use my hands. One way or another however I will kill them if it is even remotely within my power to do so; I want to ensure that it is always within my power to do so, I never want to be helpless before some waster shit who's broken into my house. Thus I approve of guns, they're just a tool, it is my intent that would kill not the gun, if the gun wasn't there I'd still try and kill them.
Firearms are and should be allowed. Think of hunting which most people like?:nodding: I am personaly not a hunter because I don't kill animals. Only humans. lol j/k:D Another reason is protection. Someone breaks into your house? You cant just let them take your stuff! Then snap your neck! You got to protect yourself. Weapons are not a bad thing depending on how you use them.
