Should guns be banned in America?
A friend send me this photo the other day. What are your thoughts on this?
Had to find out what the little boy on the right was holding. It's a kinder egg and toys inside food is illegal in USA. No, do not want a ban on guns - ever.
Vince Vaughn: "Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won't rid the world of criminality."
David Kopel and Jarret Wollstein: "If banning guns worked, Washington, D.C. and New York would be the safest cities in the country. Gun prohibition won't keep guns out of the hands of criminals or make us safe."

Banning guns doesn't stop Muslim terrorists from killing people.
Look at the French policeman stabbed by a Muslim in France the same day as the Orlando shootings, the atheists in Pakistan and Bangladesh killed by machete wielding Muslim mobs, the moderate British Muslim killed by a fundamentalist Muslim for wishing fellow Brits a Happy Easter. It doesn't stop the Muslims who have beheaded Buddhist school teachers for teaching Muslim children science contrary the Koran.
Banning guns doesn't stop the Muslim bombings from Paris to London to Madrid to Moscow.
The problem isn't the weapons - it is the ideology, fundamentalist Islam, driving them to kill.

The NRA leadership (not most of NRA members) currently sees Gun Control as a stark Black and White issue. The NRA et al think that ANY step to keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them is ipso facto an attempt to keep guns out of the hands of ALL citizens; this is the...

Is anyone else here feeling pretty much turned off by the elitist moderators on HubPages?Their explanations for allowing some questions to stand and banning others are beyond lame. Then there is that "thing" of banning decent people without explanation and choosing not to respond to...

Do you feel that banning guns would solve the problems in the world ?There has been a lot of killings in the world with guns, automobiles, knives, drugs, chemicals, plants, clubs, and sporting events. Do you feel that the instruments are the cause or is it the mentality of the people ? ...
