Why do we allow ourselves to live in a society that we have to feel the need to protect what's ours with guns?? We are suppose to be the safest and free of all countries but yet we have to have a gun to survive...

Most of the population is safe, but when you have thugs and thief's and murderers running around taken advantage of the gunless then I think it makes perfect sense to arm yourself. Take a look at Chicago and see how well gun control works.

By all means, please don't "allow yourself" to live in our free society if things are so bad.. Where did you get your facts?? We don't NEED guns to survive, we need them to keep criminals and govt officials from infringing on our freedoms. In most cases you don't even need to use a gun, it's the idea of possibly having one that keeps the bad guys in check. Just ask Japan....

I agree with Ur thoughts but it seems to me its not criminals commiting these acts with guns but others that flipped out and decide to kill..why wouldn't we as citizens could declare a war against people that promote the use of guns even if it is justified violence???we have a right to bear arms but it isn't a right if its allowing us to live in fear and causing a major strain on our society..

Are you saying we should declare war on people that are JUSTIFIED in using a gun? I don't live in fear cause I am a responsible key word responsible gun owner and I am confident that if some criminal or flipped out person comes at me or my family shooting I have the right to defend myself and I will. We wouldn't have twenty dead children in the state of CT, if just one teacher had been armed in that school. I am a big believer in the fact if someone wants you dead they will find a way to kill you bottom line laws are only going to work if you are inclined to obey that law. Let's face it a criminal or flipped out person isn't inclined to obey the law. That is why restricting guns or banning guns will only hurt the responsible gun owners. So if you are saying you would want to declare war on people who are JUSTIFIED in using a gun than I think you must be one of those flipped out people you are talking about.

The Human Cost of "Gun Control"

”I sympathize with people who want to ban guns, but I can’t agree with them. We have to be careful in our zeal to abolish guns that we don’t wind up with counter-productive legislation that will leave armed only the people most likely to do harm with them.”- Hugh Downs

Guns are like condoms. I'd rather have one and not need it, as opposed to needing one and not having it.

They're force equalizers - anyone can use one. Before them, one was at the mercy of genetics. Scrawny people couldn't really respond to threats of violence, nor could the elderly or infirm. Now they can, fairly easily. With such a leveled playing field, people aren't as tempted to go and do as they please. After all, why risk it if one in three people are carrying?

Fuckered, you stink of priveleged bleeding heart who hasn't looked into the issue very thoroughly. Suffice it to say, humanity is opportunistic - and given the chance, fully 85% of the rest of our race would shank you in the giblets if it meant a leg up for them. Guns make it a less tempting offer.

As a side note, the only thing pervasive and oppressive governments fear is an armed, intelligent, and aware populace. Stop paving the way for 1984.

Gun control is a major issue with me but I see all of these awful crimes commuted by people that have a thinking issue..yes we do have a right to protect ourselves but people are abusing these rights and killing in mass amounts..should teachers have guns at schools?? My belief is no..we are starting a trend of living in fear and it does bother me to know that our children will grow to believe its ok to strike back when harmed..I honestly do not believe we have any right to take a human life..the scared factor won't work...it will only keep people on guard...stress violence and death..

Obama doesn't set a good example. He kills more kids with his drone strikes than all the school shooters combined. Then he wants to take guns away from peaceful law abiding citizens. But he can't have them. It's our Constitutional right.

Whoa! wait a minute. Am I reading this correctly. You disagree with one defending his/herself? that's just plain insane! Or do you mean "Strike back" as revenge? I might agree with you there. If someone comes at me though with the intent of harm I'll defend myself with whatever means necessary to insure mine and my familys safety.

Let's say you wake up tomorrow and the economy has collapsed. Cash doesn't work or credit cards and there is no food left at Walmart anyway. You and your family are lucky and have about 2 weeks of food at home. But after a few days some very hungry people show up at your door with bats and guns. Who do you think is going to be out searching for food the next day? A gun in your home would change the scenario.

It might change the scenario a little but unless you're armed to the teeth and you have small group of people to defend the outcome would probably be the same as if you were unarmed minus a few hungry mob people and yourself.

Would you put a sign in your yard that says "Proud to live in a gunfree home"? Or would you like to continue to preach one thing but get the side benefit that criminals don't know for sure that you don't own a gun?

They're all protected by guns but we're not good enough? I've never killed anyone. Oh-bomb-a can't say that.

Guns kill roughly 32000 per year including homicide, suicide, and accidents. Approximately 61% are suicides, then 36% homicides, and 3% accidents. The problem is that people are desperate or have mental problems. Look at our job market, people are losing hope. Stop the Marxist confiscation and give citizens the freedom to live, work, and protect themselves. Punish criminals instead of releasing them on plea bargain deals. After they have paid their full debt, let them have clean slate. If they murder, rape, or child molest, then send them to hell. Help your neighbor and say kind words everyday. Do not confiscate the right and property of citizens to defend themselves.

I do very much agree that society is very much forgetting that life is more than guns...money...and drugs..I feel that guns...hand guns..assault weapons...r only made for one thing and that's to kill..I was raised to be a loving person that may have more love for life than is really there but I do feel sadness everytime I see another crime commuted for no apparent reason..do I believe in protecting myself??? Very muck so but I also believe in other ways to deal with evil besides evil..I don't need a gun to protect me or my family...to me its GODS will in the end any way..

Wow, amazing that guns just jump up and kill people since they are inanimate objects. Care to explain?
