~~~GUN CONTROL~ (Page 2)
Geoff: Banning handguns hasn't made much impact on crime using guns in the UK
In fact banning anything just drives it deeper into the hands of the criminals. See what happened during the prohibition in the US.
I'm not in favour of people like the NRA or gun-nuts who have a wall full of guns in their homes saying it is their right to own them, but trying to control the ownership of firearms in a nation where there are so many already in society would seem to be a futile exercise.
True... just like with banning alcohol back during prohibition of the early 20th century and now with drugs....
dantheman225: GUNS DON'T KILL!!!stupid people do!!!stupid people leave guns loaded!!stupid people point guns at other people!!!GUN DON'T KILL!!!stupid people do!!!
True but how are we suppose to keep these "stupid people" from getting the guns they use to kill ????
dantheman225: how do you stop stupid parents,,from having kids??how do you stop stupid leaders from going to war??guns are not the problem!!people are!!human nature!!how do you change that???
quiver: Intelleigence is based off of 7 things. every human being in the world possess 3 things. Wisdom ,to change things in his or her life, knowlage to to pass on to the next person.Understanding of ones self and others around them, this helps ppl to grasp the concept quickly.We as ppl lose this intelleigence ,do to the lack of these 3 things, makes us obtuce.
Then we commit crime do to our emotiional side. and i can name all 7 of them + The OTHER*******0*******000000, EMOTIONAL side effect that we as human beings have (we r so handy caped).So in Conclusion, say no to ALCAHOL&TABACCO&FIRAMES....&DRUGS. WHEN USEING FIREARMS.or just say no to drugs and alcahol when useing firearms, and be responsable.Its not to hard,It takes works.

Geoff: FreeBC, stop spamming. Rod will get mad at you.
You may feel that you have a valid point, but post a coherent message and be willing to debate it. This is a thread regarding gun control and not for the debate regarding the devolution of power.
jim-jim!: My family has a large farm & guns are a nessecary part of life there. I've shot many animals with many different guns.... but I still think availability is a problem with hand guns & other military style weapons. Do you all really think it is good that bellicose business' are creaming it with corrupt officials doing deals in 3rd world countries causing major havoc?
