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.

Gun Control refers to laws that LIMIT possession of firearms and how they are used!

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.

Something which is enforced in Britain, and as a result, only 70 people a year are killed each year by guns, compared with America's 12'000.
And don't say 'that's because America's population is vastly bigger'. It's only 4 times bigger than Britain's, which means only 280 people should be killed by guns each year over there
Switzerland don't have gun control, but they have a low crime rate because they're not constitution-fucking American nutjobs!! In the words of the great Chris Rock; 'You need some bullet control!!'

A great idea that, apparently, not one of you supports.
A gun is all you need, you say, and you'll be safe from all danger. But actually, a gun used in self defense at your house is "43 times more likely to kill a member of the household, or a visiting friend than in intruder."-(Arthur Kellermann and Donald Reay. "Protection or Peril? An Analysis of Firearm Related Deaths in the Home." The New England Journal of Medicine, vol. 314, no. 24, June 1986, pp. 1557-60). So much for the saftey of a gun.
I'm sure all of you crazy self-defensive people will be happy by the news that in Florida, self defense has been taken to such a level that you are now allowed to shoot people on the street in self defense. Now, you are allowed to walk on the street with a concealed gun and shoot people, and if put in jail, you may appeal in the case of self defense. Justice prevails in America.
Some people say "What happens when the government becomes a dictatorship and we have no guns to protect ourselves."

How about "What happpens when the system of checks and balances fail, and we can no longer vote, and we can no longer impeach, and dragons roam the earth, and we have no guns to protect ourselves!" it is completely ridiculous to relate government corruption to gun control, and use it as a reason to own a gun.

1. The idea that enforcing weapon laws and limiting the amount of guns that are sold - and to whom - will reduce crimes committed with said weapons.

2. A concept often called "unconstitutional" by the same redneck "Christians" who want the Ten Commandments displayed in federal buildings. Strikes fear into their shrivelled hearts despite the fact that the guns in question are usually machine guns and the like, as opposed to the rifles they like to use when they go 'coon shootin' in the dump out behind the trailer park.
It's hard to commit a crime with a gun if you can't get one. Gun control helps take weapons out the hands of those not responsible enough to deserve them. This is not a difficult concept.

Something the United States Definetly needs yet will never aquire because the hillbillys who run this country would rather continue to have more than 11,000 innocent people die every year at the hands of retards who cant tell the difference between a squirt gun and an M-16. So we just pretend that its ok and dont pass "Gun Control" laws because the hicks need to defend their right to blow up grapefruits in their backyards with Kalashnikov Rifles.
We need Gun Control, but Dubbya wont dare piss off Heston and his gang.
