While violence is bad, gun control is worse. When something is illegal, it does not disappear, it goes underground. I do not know why liberals should have such a difficult time relating to this concept. If someone is bold enough to risk their life to commit murder, it is probably safe to say that they aren't afraid to break some silly gun law. This is dangerous in that it transfers weapons from the good citizens to the criminals. "Banning" AK-47s doesn't do a damn thing - except make YOU more vulnerable.
Let's not forget that the Constitution gives American citizens the right to bear arms. While some restrictions may not necessarily be unconstitutional, the notion that the Right to Bear Arms is a group right is absurd at best. What, only the police can have guns? The founding fathers are rolling over in their graves.
It's a slippery slope to curtail constitutional rights or to outright "declare" one amendment "outdated" or a "relic." How would you feel if President Bush all of a sudden said the First Amendment was incompatible with the War on Terror? After all, the Founding Fathers never could have seen 9/11...
Criminals have no conscience. It is only intuitive to say they are more afraid of an armed victim than they are of getting caught by the police.
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.
