Self defence or Self destruct

Self-Defense or Self-Destruction

Making guns illegal doesn't make it disappear, yet it would make lives less dangerous. A rule of thumb per capita USA has twice the homicides than Canada. Canada has twice the homicides per capita han Europe, Europe has twice the homicides than Japan. Japan has less Guns, Less Violence less Crime than America. Unlike American police, most Japanese cops don't have guns,

People in history are the true leaders, not the Military complex or Governments. Sure Humans are the most dangerous weapons on Earth with their powerful tongues, hatred with ignorance. Most things can be used as a weapon for self defense, or offense like mother’s milk on air flights. The Car is necessary, yet not designs to kill like a gun, guns are just not necessary.

When you kill any one, something dies in your soul, just ask a few Vietnam vets. US guns: Deaths for sale, it’s obviously not all Americans are pistol loving gun-nuts, Handguns greatly increase the danger to themselves and their families as many as one-half of American households have a gun. About 80 gun deaths happen every day, nearly 30 children are injured or killed by firearms each day. Since most homicide in the U.S. is criminals killing other criminals, I wonder what data was used to compare deaths from break-ins, home-invasions. Out of 500 gun death break-ins per year, about 2/3rd of them were criminal using the gun from the owner and uses against him or her.

My way to bare arms for defenses is using my arms for hugging. I would not like to get involved in a three way pistol duel with two other cowboys. It’s not my style, or way to find the truth. Owning a gun would not stop any country from invading the USA. These rights to bare arms are afraid of our own shadow, afraid that if we used a little common sense and admit these insecure principles were wrong.

Guns are cheap and readily available to anyone with the cash...The majority of gun-related deaths in the United States are suicides, and the greatest fear for American is a criminal break-in to their home. If you are thinking of getting a gun to protect yourself, think again..

Do you think the mentally ill or people with drug addictions should own a gun in the US? There are more hunters in Canada than hockey players. If only USA register guns like Canadian, it would be a lot safer.

If this gun hub deeply offends anyone, please write me a stern letter, don’t get your gun.

Hi Castlepaloma thanks for this well written hub, i don't own a gun and never will. I think many people should think before they sell a gun to anyone,and think about how many people will be killed by that gun and not how many dollars you will get for selling that gun.

Thanks Kashmir

I don't understand how guns became big business. I didn’t know of any kids with a gun in their locker when I was kid. Some would have just punched it out, thinking that was the way to manhood

Must be a very interesting life living in a country where guns are so readily available. I have only seen a real gun once and that is the gun my Dad used for hunting. It was always out of sight. I know guns exist here illegally too but myself have never seen any thank goodness. I am sure it does take away part of the soul when one kills another. Sad but true. Its nice to use your arms in a more loving way like you do. Informative hub that I found very intriguing! Thanks!
