Do you feel that banning guns would make American Communities less dangerous?


I feel that it's not the people who have guns legally that are the problem. Taking guns away from registered owners is NOT going to stop crime, it will just make us less able to protect ourselves from the criminals who will still have their guns. Isn't this a matter of common sense?

    Simple justification. Guns make it easy to kill. Add fear-mongering and demonizing whole swaths of people (the others), and you can justify anything.

    Guns need to die. Die die die...just like the victims do every single day.

    No I agree. I for sure think it's insane. We have a Constitution for a reason. That is our right for a reason. We fought for our Constitution what give anyone the right to take that away?

    Candy... you really don't know that since 1934 there have been extensive laws concerning "automatic weapons" and "machine guns" with many hoops and hurdles to jump thru to own one? It never hurts to do basic research ~before~ you post an opinion.

    It's actually not easy to get a gun, at least not legally. There's a 10 day waiting period, many states outlaw fully automatic guns etc, the problem is the black market. Which will never be stopped, unfortunately.

    No, but they go to jail for it.....gun nuts want to make murder a justifiable option. "Ooops, it was self-defense"
