i don't say you shouldn't allow weapons to be owned. i just say that the people that want to own them should be controlled heavily. it should not be a right for everyone, it should be something to be earned by a being a peaceful, trustful and responsible human being.

with buying a gun you already made the first step to decide to use it.
because how can anyone use a gun and learn how to use it, without getting in your hands.
and a gun was designed to kill or damage and animal or human being, which is different from an ax or a knife that also have other functions.
a gun is not designed to be used to cut vegetables and it is difficult to use it to make fire wood or to build a house.
the one function a gun has is shooting something/someone. that's what it's made for.
Yes there are a lot of inprovised weapons, but owning them doesn't mean that you chose to buy or produce a tool made for inflicting damage on living beings, because they can be used for other things.
shooting can be sport and we need hunters to a certain point, but some random dude letting their gun laying around openly instead of having it locked-up somewhere safely or giving it to a child, this is something we don't need in this world.

To anyone who says it's the gun who kills someone, you have to remember who pulled the trigger, the person holding the gun.

I think America's left likes to place accountability on inanimate objects instead of people. Guns kill people. 2 liter sodas make people fat (thanks to Idiot Bloomberg for that gem).

While it may be true that people kill people, how do they do it? With lethal weapons, such as guns.

Cain killed his brother with a stone.

If indeed guns kill people, why do we have prisons for people, again? Either the people do, or they use tools and the tools do it. You never judge something by its abuse- if you did, water and cars would be banned.

Cain as in Cain and Abel? If so, why use mythology as a reference? That's like me randomly stating Zeus killed titans with lightning, it serves no purpose.

You fail to listen. People kill people, but the method often used is a gun. People pull the trigger, the gun fires and the bullet kills the victim. That's how it works.

How things are said sometimes matters more than what is said. Saying that basically was my way of telling you that people kill others with anything. Anything can be used.

No, that's all that needs to be said. People kill people. Guns don't sprout legs and pull their own triggers. Someone else did it. Guns do more good than harm because more gun wielders have good intents rather than malicious ones. Besides, banning guns to stop crime is like banning the stealing of money in order to prevent bank robberies.

Sometimes, but not in this case. Referencing a myth holds no credibility over political or social policies.

People kill people with those guns. Yes, many are good and law abiding. But even among the law abiding, accidents happen and guns are stolen from them. Intent is only one factor.
Stealing money is banned, it's called robbery. So based on what you just said, saying banning guns to stop crime is like banning robbery to stop robbery? Think before you talk.
Starlow-FTW Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2013
No, but it was a different way of saying the same thing. It flows better.

No offense to you, but you're deep as a piece of paper. Murder and robbery are already illegal. Murderers who use guns are kind of already criminals, and so gun control will be meaningless. Laws are meant to apply to those who will actually follow them. You think a bank robber is going to stop robbing banks because stealing money is suddenly illegal? It's about as likely as a murderer that will stop killing people because he's using an illegal weapon without a license. Oh, but his/her victim who would ordinarily be armed to stop them? Yeah, they were foolish enough to follow the law. You want to stop violence, go deeper. The fact that the existence of a psychopath who thinks that murdering a group of children is okay... THAT'S the real problem that should be solved in the first place, isn't it?
vaidlus Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2013  Professional Artist
Maybe in your mind.

Deep as paper? That's a new one. Not funny, but new.

Gun control is meaningless because criminals disregard the law? So what are you proposing, that guns be unregulated and not controlled? That's one of the principles of militaristic anarchy.

Stealing money is already illegal, it can't get "suddenly" illegal. So saying that banning robbery wont stop robbery makes no sense.
There are more ways of defending yourself, property and others without guns. I'll give you a quick rundown.
-baseball bats
-tire irons
-pool cues
-bow and arrow
-attack dogs
-hot oil
-heavy paper weights
-stun rods
-your own body
I could go on and on. Dangerous people have always existed and people have always been able to defend themselves without guns, why do we suddenly need them now? Does their possession of a gun somehow make them magically immune to peoples resistance attempts? Of course not. You WANT guns, you DON'T need them.

Thing is, you cannot cure a psychopath. You cannot always tell if someone is before hand. Guns will not and does not change that simple fact.

Try having the butt of one rammed into the base of your skull and get back to me on that.
Shattered-Godess Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
Well it appears not to have killed you. So it stands to reason that my statement is still valid. Oh, and let us not forget someone else hit/rammed you in the back of head with it. This is unless it is a magical gun that floated off of where ever it was sitting and attacked you. In which case I suggest seeing a professional for such things.

i think spoons can kill people too.....many ways, actually...
I have come to the conclusion that spoons are more dangerous than guns.
Shattered-Godess Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2011
Agreed! XD

On the other hand, spoons weren't designed to make people fat (unless you smell conspiracy) whereas guns were designed to kill people.

Still, I agree, having guns doesn't mean you are or will become a killer.

I agree wholeheartedly with this.
I just wish more people saw things like this

Though my gun does make me feel safe...I've had an instance where if I didn't have it, I would have been in a lot of trouble.

the only flaw in the point is that guns were made to kill,
troodon9999 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
I don't see that as a flaw in the point... the point isn't what guns were or were not made to do. A gun is a tool. If you hit your thumb with a hammer, that's not the hammer's fault.

One must concede that a handgun at least, has only two purposes: putting holes in people, or threatening to do so. It is a tool of self defense in the sense that it's a deterrent, or a response, to an attack... but it can be used offensively as well. The intent however lies with the wielder of the gun, not the gun itself. If guns did not exist, murder still would... people would just use other means to kill.
Shattered-Godess Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2008
it can be argued that they were made for self defense, and in many cases that means killing
