The only argument that really matters when it comes to questions about gun control is enshrined in Our Constitution: The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. That is very clear and concise. It does not say "unless we think it's too big."

It does not have a qualifier: unless someone uses it to shoot children, or college students, or collects them in his basement. There is no limit of One per customer, nor does it say But he can't actually LOAD the thing. All of those cases constitute

The 2nd amendment makes no mention of the individual's right to own weapons. It says nothing about ammo. All it says is that states are allowed to have an armed, standing malitia. So quit using 2nd amendment as your argument

Look at the rest of the world people. They have super strict gun laws & they have less gun crime. Who cares if they have significantly more crime overall? THEY HAVE LESS GUN CRIME!!!!

If we had better gun control, the number of school shootings would decrease significantly. People don't need guns for self defense. Knives and calling 911 work just as well.

Our founding fathers couldn't have imagined today's weapons and would never have included a right to bear arms if they would have known people of today would be carrying around the types of guns in existence now.

Sometimes people with guns prevent crimes. Hunting is fun, and helps keep animal populations under control. Its really fun to go to a shooting range. Physically small people can feel safer.

Yes it is. It protects me and gave me a cell phone and it asks me questions about my personal life. Government cares about us. Anti-government republican (or would I say Democrats because we're reversed?) only want guns to hurt our government.

They say themselves that it is the enemy, disregarding the fact that it is government for the people and by the people. It says so right in their beloved Constitution.

The constitution should be strictly understood in the terms of the time at which it was written. There were no multi shot weapons save multi barrel shotguns/rifles and black powder was the only propellant so all modern guns are not protected.

Why should any modern, civilized society continue to be held hostage by some rule written by people who lived in a completely different time and type of society?
We don't need to hunt for food, and we have a capable police force for protection.

Also, there are numerous non-lethal self protection choices. Like pepper spray and tazers.
Any responsible, civilized person should be perfectly safe without a gun.

The point is to make it harder, especially for the children. Think of the children in the schools, all the shootings. If we make guns illegal, they won't be able to steal them from Daddy's cabinet and shoot up their classmates.

I hate the Constitution and it's archaic laws. It has no place in the modern world. Only government agents can properly protect us. Banning guns will reduce all crimes. It just makes sense.

It's basically where someone, say like Barry Seotoro, pretends he's something that he's not. Like pretending to love America while working behind the scenes to destroy it.

Guns are intended for war, for hunting, for personal protection, sports. In a modern society we are capable of achieving peace, shopping at a deli, calling the police, and sitting on a couch and watching television. We have alternatives to guns!

The only purpose of guns is to kill. If we take everyone's guns away but the government's, none of us can kill one another! And, the government would never do anything to hurt us ever, so nothing bad would ever happen again!

Guns are unpredictable in that they sometimes choose to go all crazy and shoot a bunch of people up. If guns had better access to government funded preschool, healthcare, and didn't have to show an ID to vote then they'd be a lot less violent.
