(Legal) acces to guns might save people in some situations but it might just as well kill* people by accident (people who would't have a gun if guns would be illegal). Guns have their pro's and con's and i have to say that IF every humanbeing** on this planet knew how to use a gun (responsibilly) then it would be ok to legalize guns. But accidents will always happen (and even responsible people might shoot too early: you don't shoot a burglar or other criminal when it is obvious that he won't/can't defend himself (shoot at you). If a burglar would walk in your hous with his gun in his pocket then there is no need to shoot him!

But again: accidents will always happen!

* i know that guns don't kille people but that people kill people but you get the point. **this does not include crimals etc.

NOTE: this is taken from an other post but i think that it could better be discussed here:

Yes, if they come onto your property without your permission, you can take it ofensevly(sp?) and attack them on the account of self deffense. But if this Commander Keen guy is only 14, I don't know what would happen...

ps: Commander Keen is an awesome game

WTF? If i entered your terrain without permission (accidently or just to have a shortcut) you could shoot me? wow that is a idiot law (btw i hate laws that make guns legal but this could be seen separlty -you could knive him aswell-) You can NOT shoot/kill somebody for being on your property (unless he is armed and dangerous -but even then you have to try to chase him off/let the police arrest him/force him to surrender), if somebody is on your terrain then ask them to leave and if they won't push/drag them away and/or call the police.

If someone was on my property without permission, I wouldn't shoot them, but I would point the gun at them and question them or order them to leave!;)
