    You make great points, but you're right about the test not happening. Only because those of us who care about laws would do it, but the criminals don't care about following rules. I would rather shoot a potential rapist than be raped in my bed.

    There are many examples to use unfortunately as well as CO. It is way easier to go and shoot many people with a gun (emotionally and physically) than it is to go out and mass kill people with knives so I don't think you can equate the two.

    Because people are abusing that right and killing people.

    How can you say that other countries' cultures value human life more than ours? Even been to Africa? How about the Middle East? How many times have you been to Mexico? And if you think we own guns because of the movies or hip hop you're deluded.

    Equating the right to own a cellphone or a car to the right to own a gun I'm afraid is just ludicrous! The primary use of cars is transport. The primary use of guns is to kill things. More people die of cancer too but that is also not my point.

    Do you mean that less weapons equals more crime? If you can, please elaborate. I'm a bit confused.

    Just because something can't be taken away doesn't surely mean that it is right?

    I don't think singling out gun rights is 'silly' (that in itself strikes me as a frivolous statement) when someone can go out and shoot dozens of people at a time.
