    Do people really have the right to bear arms/own a gun (that's registered)? Should we ban guns?

    Of course the main question here is should we ban guns? It's a dangerous tool used for shooting. Even if the gun is registered to you and you abuse it in any way, should you be banned from buying or owning any other kinds of guns?

    So your question if answered in the affirmative, would allow guns only in the hands of law enforcement and the criminals. As, criminals by definition break the law.

    Alcohol, and tobacco are more of a danger than guns. Half the gun deaths in the US are used in the commission of a suicide.

      And a police state is one where only the police are allowed to have guns.

      mmmm...well to me (personal opinion) criminals do break the law and there are people who sell guns in the black market as well. So is it best to raise the price of guns?

      We raised the prices with tobacco, and alcohol, and that didn't help?

    I'm just a little confused due to the fact that guns are a deadly weapon used for killing and how easily it gets into the hands of people..I  really don't like that..so my question is, should it be just officers that should carry guns? or raise the price on it?

      Never limit guns to just the government, or the common people are vulnerable to both the state and criminals with knives, guns, etc.

    The UK banned guns, and its murder rate was essentially unchanged, because criminals still got access to guns and the angry just shifted to killing with baseball bats and tire irons instead of guns.
    And with guns banned, both the UK and Australia saw armed robbery and unarmed robbery rates skyrocket.
    Guns are a force equalizer, allowing a small woman to stop a large attacker from stealing her purse or raping her or killing her husband. Take the guns away from law abiding citizens, and you just make it easier for criminals to commit crimes.
