It's people that suck.
F33nX said:QFTMFT. guns do not cause accidents. people's carlessness cause accidents. guns do not murder by themselves, they need someone pulling the trigger while aiming in order to do that.
NeedMoreEmo said:Why not ban guns?
wr3kt said:Banning guns is like church groups trying to ban certain stations from TV or radio because they're too stupid to turn it off.
A gun is only as dangerous as the person using it.
If the person has no idea about guns, it is most likely going to become extrememly dangerous to that person and anyone around.
The same could be said about a very knowledgable person, but odds are, they won't be using it(considering if they are law-abiding) for intentional physical harm beyond sel-protection.
Again...criminals, even in todays system, aquire guns illegally, so banning guns would have no effect on them.

/editingNeedMoreEmo said:But why do you need guns? Self defense? We all know you're more likely to be killed yourself if you own a gun. Sounds to me like that defeats the object of buying one.
NeedMoreEmo said:Guns take the fun out if it, you need practise throwing knives inbetween the eyes.
wr3kt said:What statistics are you reading?
A knowledgable person who ALSO teaches others around them how to handle and use a gun will not be harmed by them.
Guns aren't dangerous, ignorance is.
