What are we gonna do?

There is always going to exsist the ever-prominent fact that some people in this country (and all over the world for that matter) are not responsible when it comes to fire arms.But banning our country's major protection outlet will most likely cause more problems than before.People will rebuke the idea by increasing the gun-flaunting tlin spite of the government as a sign of dissaproval.Our world has enough problems without human beings turning on each other, but we can't control what some maniacs do.Even if they passed the initiative people will still murder each other using other weopons of choice.I believe that guns are powerful tools that are used for good AND evil.They can take our lives or save them, depending on the person who's hand is on the trigger and their judgment.I know that if a person has any kind of lethal weapon- not just guns- they should know the major affect that it could have on someone.We don't to get rid of guns... we need to get common and some respect.:J

The Connecticut shooting had very strict gun laws, but that shooting still occurred. There is a town in Tennessee (I forget its name) that has a rule that everyone always has a gun, and they have some of the lowest violence rates in the country. If someone really wants a gun to kill people, they can get it illegally or use another weapon.
Put yourself in two scenarios where you are a criminal looking to shoot innocent people: 1) It's illegal to own guns unless you are a safety person like police. You are fairly certain that the people around you do not have guns, but you have one that you bought illegally. 2) You are in that Tennessee town where every adult always has a gun. You also have a gun.
Say in each scenario you shoot a random person in the same place, lets say a mall. In #1, you can continue shooting others until an officer stops you. In #2,if you shoot someone, a third person will shoot you. If you know that everyone around you has a gun, you're less likely to shoot.

P.S. Automatic or semi-automatic not sure which but you get the idea.

I think they should get rid of the semi-automatic guns. No person needs to carry a gun where they can shoot multiple people without thinking. Ya I get that the Bill of Rights says we have the right to bear arms but a shotgun or pistol is much different from a semi-automatic. To stop a criminal or a shooter you only need a shot or two to protect yourself and others. No need for a bunch of bullets that could kill innocent people. I'm praying for you victims of school shootings! <3

The fact of the matter is, if someone wants a gun, they will get it easily. Guns are illegally sold here all the time. And if they can't use a Gun, they will use something else. A car, a taser, a knife, a bow and arrow, you name it. Taking away the rights of the average civilian to have a gun is not going to protect them because they will be defenseless. The rights were put in place to protect us from the government, so when people say "only military and police (who work for the government) can have the guns", we are not being protected.

It's not the gun that kills people. People kill people. You can kill a person just as easily with a car. I don't hear all of you freaking out saying we need "car control" or "car banning". Drugs are illegal. I still see people selling their weed. No matter what, a criminal is still gonna have a gun. If not a gun he'll find himself a bat. If that one bad guy has a gun and you have nothing, what do you thinks gonna happen to you? Obama is trying to ban guns, but what if his body guards had to get rid of theirs? Obama would be history because he'd have no protection from the bad guys. Hitler made his people get rid of their weapons? Remember what happened? So umm before you say how and guns are, remember that a gun won't just take your life, it will save it.

Weapons such as guns and knives should only be used by police and firefighters and other people that rescue us when we are in need. There is no other use for such weapons. I know that knives are used for food. But if weapons like guns are just banished for good, the number of murders will decrease. The only hard part about it is getting these weapons from criminals. What do you think? Comment and put my username if you are responding to me. Thanks! And, everyone, I dare you to, tomorrow, be nice to someone that you hate. No matter how much you despise them, just say something like "I like your shoes! Where did you get them?" It's worth it in the end... I'm telling you...

I think that only police and military personal should have a gun. No one else needs a gun. There should be NO reason to need a gun even for protection. They need to be way more secured and if they do stay legal. Then people should only be able to have one small one and that's it! Not a collection of riffles like some people have. That's my opinion on them.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Our lives ARE worth owning guns, guns could SAVE your life. You never hear about the shootings where the gunman was shot by a good guy before they could kill somebody else. And semi automatic and full automatic are completely different. Semi automatic is you pull the trigger once and one bullet fires. Automatic is where you hold the trigger down and it keeps shooting. People are much safer when the good guys have guns.
