Listen to yourself.
The bad guys have them!!!
You are so paranoid.
When was the last time you confronted someone with a gun. Its easy to say i have, over the internet.
But I dont believe you.
Fact is that if you are going to allow people to own handgun, you have got to educate them and you have got to do stict psychological screening. I m not against rifles and shotguns for sport, and you can use a shotgun for self defence.
handguns are made for killing.
Again, statistics can show anything you want them to show, there is no use in comparing stats.
I am talking about gun crime, not violent crime. I would rather have the crap kicked out of me than shot. I would rather be stabbed than shot. There are no eseis(spelling) with AKs on the streets in London, and armed robberies are rare. In Brazil, where you can get an automatic for around 50 bucks, people dont keep their money in banks anymore and there is a financial crisis.
I dont trust poeple with guns. And the arguement that if bad guys have them then i should have them. Is crap. NOONE should have them.
You can say what you want about Michael Moore, but all you know is what people have said of him. I dont know him, he might be a complete idiot, but at least he is raising questions, and not just sitting there staring blankly at the world.
All I know about gun crime, is through the media, and that is a highly unreliable source of perspective i admit. But to deny a trend between gun ownership and gun deaths is ignorant. http://www.guninformation.org/
