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 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!

A major violation of the 2nd Amendment.

Also a very controversial topic.

And stupid as hell too. The whole premise of gun control is to end violence by making sure no one has guns. Well, that won't work, because then there's always going to be that one sick individual who's got a veritable armory in his basement of every gun imaginable. Now imagine that psychopath attacking the unsuspecting, and sadly, disarmed, public. Quite hypocritical if you ask me. When there's a terrorist running loose, I'd like my Winchester 1300 20-gauge as close as possible so if I see the fucker I can blast his ass to hell.

Also upheld by Animal Rights Activists such as PETA. I think this is because they think it's somehow wrong that we hunt animals. I don't know about that, but I do know there's something wrong with their brains.
let's outlaw guns and watch the terrorists kill us all, but hey, at least Bambi isn't getting shot anymore...

A controversial set of policies in the United States particularly. It is essentially the mentality behind Prohibition applied to firearms. And oddly, many of its proponents say you have a right to drink alcohol, though it is not specifically inscribed in the Bill of Rights, while ownership of firearms is enumerated as a right in said Bill of Rights.
Gun control amuses me. They'll throw the book at a licensed gun dealer who makes a spelling error on one of their forms. But federal agencies lost over 1000 firearms last year and I don't see the BATFE auditing the FBI.

Feminists, who don't know about real guns. All they see is "Boy, 17 killed by gun", so they seek to ban every legal gun on the planet. This act is to punish the legal users of guns, while the criminals go unchecked and buy more illegal guns every year
Those bitches are supporting gun control

A plan that has already failed because it only drives the gun sellers underground and makes the guns more available on the black merket.
I bought myself an Uzi, a '45, and an M-16 from the black market thanks to the gun control laws.
