I don't like weapons of any kind at all that were made to injure or kill and hurt people. I just don't like the idea of guns or weapons or nuclear arms. If it were strictly up to me, I'd get rid of them all, everywhere, world-wide, now.
As far as legislation goes, it seems that gun laws don't do very much to decrease violent crime. We've tried that and it doesn't work very well. The only people who comply with gun laws are law-abiding citizens. The criminals don't care.
So, though it might seem contradictory in the light of how much I detest weapons, I don't think so.
I was bought up with guns, at 10 I had my first pellet gun, at 11 I watched in horror as my father smashing it against a rock because i was taking pot shots at my brothers on account of them not letting me play cricket with them. At 12 I made myself a pellet gun(itwas a goodun too). Dad let me keep it cause I had shown that I was respectful of what they represented. Today I don't have a gun in the house, but find they are necessary with all the snakes about...so instead of shooting them I now shoosh them.. still yet to find one without that wild stubborn streak though. The answer is no I don't think gun laws should be in place...if somebody wants to kill somebody they will. Having a gun does make it easier for the bullies and the weidosand the cowards,but hey gun laws won't deter them, harsher punishment might ...like throw away the key to their freedom.

Why is the emphasis not place upon those who do NOT belong to the above group? Can guns...

The shooting in Thousand Oaks is too close to home. I use to work in Thousand Oaks. Our thoughts and prayers are with you means nothing to those who lost loved ones. We are being attacked by domestic terrorism from within by mentally unstable people who have easy access to lethal weapons. Every...

Time to take another look at gun control. How many people go hunting with a handgun or an asault weapon? These guns are made for hunting people. No one has any business packing a 9mm Glock with a 30+ round magazine. These weapons need tighter control and need to be put in the same class as fully...

Some people already have a lot of guns. So if gun laws are passed, how will the government actually get guns away from people. Some guns are registered and some are not, how could the government find out, and how could the government actually take guns away from people?
