Getting rid of guns will not significantly drop murder rates. It would instead just generate a black market for illegal firearms.
While gun control is a noble idea, it is simply impractical. Criminals are not going to stop getting guns because it's illegal or wrong. Obviously the right or wrong thinking is absent in their brains, hence the "criminal" label. Some politicians yell for gun control, yet their bodyguards are armed. There needs to be more scrutiny when people purchase guns to rule out those who have mental illnesses which make them having one a bad idea, but there will always be illicit ways to get one. Guns are helpful tools in protecting oneself and for hunting, it's the person pulling the trigger that is responsible for the bad deeds that they are involved in.
I disagree with the "unamerican" part. Guns don't make a person American and fighting against guns doesn't make them unamerican. Other than that, I agree with the statement, it is a joke
Its a big joke considering that they helped us win the revolutionary war when we gained our independence from the British government. I don't understand why so many people are against us having them and are perfectly ok with only government officials having them. With the way some police hell even our own government has been acting and working against us I don't trust them. The 2nd amendment clearly states that they are to help us protect ourselves and the security of a free state which means protect us from a tyrannical government. Do people who think gun control will really work? Uh no. Criminals do not follow laws and won't follow gun laws. The only people they will affect are law abiding citizens who actually know how to use a gun. They are here for self defense purposes.
