A political issue dividing the United States for which there are two main stances.more...
Pro Control Stance: A necessity in a country in which the Vice President manages to shoot someone in the face, "on accident."
Anti Control Stance: Owning a gun is great way to keep overbearing government and thiefs out of your home. Unfortunately, this is entirely useless in a country in which the government has weapons far beyond the scope of any law abiding citizen.
Philosophy behind the argument: Some people argue that this could be a "hands-off" issue for our politicians. That is, people who want guns can have them, people who don't can not own one. However, the armed will always have superior influence over the peaceful. Naturally, everyone must have the ability to defend themselves equally within the law. This is why we have law enforcement officials and courts. Armed citizenship undermines legal procedure. So, the decision boils down to vigilante justice or structured justice. One is quicker yet more dangerous, one is slower yet controllable.
Solution: Take the government's weapons and give them to the citizens. That way every private citizen has the ability to bomb the crap out of people they don't like. It's the American way.

Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, and Chicago cops need guns.more...
Washington DC's low murder rate of 80.6 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Arlington, VA's high murder rate of 1.6 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.
Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are "just statistics."
The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994, are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates, which have been declining since 1991.
We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid.
The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals.
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.
When confronted by violent criminals, you should "put up no defense — give them what they want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981, p. 125).
The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns and Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.

1.) The reason liberal democrats should never be elected to Congress or the U.S. Presidency.
2.) The reason Chicago is the murder capital of the nation.
3.) The reason why innocent people are easily murdered.

Gun control is a violation of the 2nd Amendment and freedom as a whole. Putting into place gun control only makes law-abiding citizens defenseless against criminals who will still find a way to harm and kill. Crime usually goes up in places where gun control exists, such as Chicago and the United Kingdom. It also causes people to be less happy and less physically active, as millions of people engage in recreational sports involving firearms. Liberal democrats can never be allowed to govern this nation as their policies usually call for gun control, which inhibits human freedom and ignores the laws of the U.S. Constitution. Remember that one of the first things Hitler took away from people was their guns.
Holding a gun in a way that your shots are more accurate.
"THAT's gun control! None of that anti-gun crap!"
An honest, law abiding citizen buys a gun illegally. He intends to harm no one. He simply wants to protect himself and his family. He is busted and sent to prison for doing absolutely nothing to hurt anyone else. There is no punishment for gun violations that can possibly be fair. I don't know why anti-punishment liberals find nothing wrong with this.
Any punishment for a gun violation is inherently cruel and unusual, rendering gun control unconstitutional at best.
A type of pistol bullet that has the point removed and has small notchs cut vertically on the inside of the jacket of the bullet, this causes the jacket to peel back and stick outward, like the talons of a bird, and cause large amounts of tissue damage. The black talon is similar to the hollow point but has better penetration. The bullets were sold for less then a year due to a group of screaming idiots who call themselves Gun Control Inc.. The bullets are availible for sale under the name of Ranger SXT, manufactured by Winchester, they are the same thing as black talons but the name is differant.
Hey, why were black talons banned
They werent, they are availible under a differant name
Then why dont the anti gun people complain
Becasue they are stupid and much to fragile to ever go into a store that sells firearms and ammunition.
