Poor misunderstood guns- our most persecuted citizens, according to Okidoakie who straps on one of these poor citizens every day because people from the BIG CITY of Evansville are looking to ransack his trailer.

Has the USSC ruled that guns are people too, my friend? Why do you people defend guns as if they were living, breathing citizens, abused by a mere handful of people? How's that work?

<quoted text> how come I keep reading news of people getting shot all the time! THE PROBLEM HERE IS EVERYBODY OWNING GUNS IN THE US. VERY RELAXED GUN CONTROL LAWS. That is the problem. After the school shootings in the US, now everybody is calling for "gun control!" Why "gun control" when you can ban guns?! Why allow EVERYBODY INCLUDING A MENTALLY Messed up Adam Lanza own a gun? Why are people owning automatic weapons? Is that the safety guns provide? Those innocent people who have been shot, did their right to own guns protect them?
EXCEPT!!!!!!
Your hyperbole is way off base. We do not allow the mentally ill to own or possess guns. The shooter in Connecticut(I refuse to use his name)did not legally own the weapons he used. He STOLE them from his mother. Only criminals use AUTOMATIC weapons. They are not legal to possess by the American civilian population.
Guns cannot be BANNED in America. We have the protection of our founding documents. The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. They tried to ban alcoholic beverages in this country and it was a complete clusterf@ck. So, banning the possession and use of guns to American civilians would end up the same.

I beg to differ! Eliminate the gun and cases of gun related murders and gun related violence will greatly reduce.

You can own a full auto. Get a class 3 license and pay the tax. Full auto is very seldom used in a crime even though the movies would make you think otherwise.

There is no way to eliminate guns. The criminals will always have them because they don't obey the law. I don't want only criminals to be armed. I carry a gun every day. I have a permit and it is for my protection. You never know when you might be in the middle of an armed robbery. All I want is a chance to defend my life. You never need a gun unless you need one real bad. Many of the women I work with carry. One woman killed a man who was attacking her

I think you need to walk the walk before you talk the talk, so with you advising America and not living here is kind of a joke. Especially since most of your input and info is from American television. Focus on your country, something you might know about and could do some good.

judging by the comments I'm getting, the American people are in agreement with the govt on issues concerning guns and gun policies in the US.

It's always (when convenient...)'all or nothing' with you people.

Overheard in the office today, "Yeah, I got online and was looking for an AR. I couldn't find one for under $3,000 so I went to Cabela's to see what they had on the shelf. Holy sh*t!!! They want $5,000 for one with a cheap scope mount!!! I'll just wait till this all blows over and then buy one this summer."

"this all blows over" resulted in 20 dead children.

America pushes Africa around with their unfair economic policies. Talking about "democracy" and stuff. America even wants one presidential candidate to win in the upcoming Presidential elections in March in Kenya and not the other. America prefers Mr. Raila Odinga and not Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta. That's why I am concerned with America. They interfere with my country's political affairs, I concern myself with American affairs as well! Ban Guns America. I don't want to hear another random school shooting over there!

Someone not being armed to stop the shooter was what allowed the mass shooting. 8 million people now have concealed carry. Gun free zones attract these crazy killers

It doesn't matter what you guys continue to debate about. The fact is that it's a right to own a gun if you choose so.
Many can nanner on about the pros and cons of having guns, but until you find yourself scared chitless or threatened by someone, you may wish that you had a little back up.

People on here harping about guns and gun laws are forgetting how criminal can get them easily. I sure would hate to have my right to own a gun nixed and some jack wagon with an arrest record for robbery a mile long walking around packing.

Pot is a crime, but you can find it easily, booze was outlawed but people continued to drink. Go ahead, just try and make it harder for honest folks to carry a gun, it won't effect me one bit. I will always have a gun and I will always carry it. My jobs says no guns allowed at work .... too bad, I will never give up the ability to defend myself.
