Studies show that you're more likely to get mugged in London than NYC. Studies also show that home invasions are more common in the UK. And yet again, studies have shown that burglars are more afraid of armed civilians than they are of police forces. Also I ask that you bear in mind that almost every gun related crime in the US is committed with illegal firearms and almost never by civilians with permits. The criminals already have guns and they always will, so the normal/good/innocent people need guns too. Guns are freedom, without guns there can be no freedom. Guns are the first, last, and only line of defense against tyrannical government, if you let the government take away you're firearms, then you give them complete control over you. We wouldn't have won the American Revolution had the British banned guns in their colonies. It's also a basic human right to own a gun and to defend ones self. A ban on guns would also be unconstitutional and if the government ever attempted to do such a thing, it would result in a civil war, one which the gun owners would win since the military is made up mostly of conservatives and libertarians, both of which are against banning guns.

We need guns to kill pigs and soldiers if the govt goes rogue and tyrannizes or oppresses us.

A Little Gun History:

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

You wonÂ’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

well new difference is that authorities would have the authority to instantly shoot anyone who has a gun..

so if anyone has an illegal gun we will automatically know it was illegal because nobody would be allowed to have them in the first place..

the Liberal SCOTUS ruled in Haynes vs United States in 1968 and sided with the convicted felon so if a convicted felon doesnt have to register their firearms then law abiding citizens shouldnt have to register their firearms then.

Warren Court(liberal majority 1953 - 1969)

The Warren Court refers to the Supreme Court of the United States between 1953 and 1969, when Earl Warren served as Chief Justice. Warren led a liberal majority that used judicial power in dramatic fashion, to the consternation of conservative opponents. The Warren Court expanded civil rights, civil liberties, judicial power, and the federal power in dramatic ways.

Guns don't have a mind so they cannot kill people they are just used to do so... Banning guns will NOT solve this problem no matter how much people want it to. They will always find a way to get and/or make their own guns either way.
