A political issue dividing the United States for which there are two main stances.
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.
Dick Cheney doesn't favor Gun Control
because then he couldn't shoot his friends in the face.
Holding a gun in a way that your shots are more accurate.
"THAT's gun control! None of that anti-gun crap!"
1. An isidious plan by some who feel that the gun is to blame for crimes commited by the criminal as a basis to take away firearms from law-abiding citizens.
2. Hitting what you're aiming at.
3. To use both hands while firing.
Gun control isn't about guns, it's about control.
Limiting access to firearms or outright banning firearms is an extremely foolish idea. I understand that such acts are intended to prevent violent crimes, but they do not. Such acts only limits a law-abiding citizen's ability to protect himself, his family, and his property. A criminal, WHO INTENDS TO BREAK THE LAW ANYWAY, will not have any compunction about illegally obtaining firearms or obtaining illegal firearms.
Keep in mind that when the second amendment refers to "a well-regulated militia" it means "a group of citizens formed to defend its community" not "the United States military." This is confirmed by the fact that the second part of the second amendment begins "the right of the people..." not "the right of the military!"
Furthermore, Federal gun control laws are inherently unconstitutional because they violate a state's rights. Remember the Tenth Amendment? The Federal government does not!
All citizens should be allowed easy access to firearms. Furthermore, every state in the U.S.A. should pass "shoot the burglar" laws. Would you break into someone's house if you knew there was a good possibility the owner would shoot you? i wouldn't!
Of course, I will not attempt to argue with you gun control advocates who disagree with the facts. Your disregard for reason and factual information is enough of an argument against you. While you cannot help forming an opinion, that does not mean your opinion is right.
What this nation needs the -least.- Guns are a way to keep ourselves protected from assholes who are out to kill us for no damn reason. And then, liberals are trying to apply gun control on this great country. We've got enough weapons being illegal to own, and then they're trying to even make it illegal for a law enforcement official to carry one.
Let's show those liberals some "gun control" by controlling a gun their way.
Gun control is not only unconstitutional, it's a fucking stupid idea!
Taking away guns won't reduce murders. Shit, you can kill someone with your bare hands if you really wanted him dead!
1. A term often misunderstood as to meaning the control the appropriation, selling and accquisition of firearms.
2. Applying proper use to a firearm, as to be able to accurately accquire and dispatch hostile targets.
Some people say gun control is the only thing keeping the nation safe from crimes. I say that *MY* gun control is the only thing preventing people from committing acts of crime on me.
