    What do you mean, "in the olden times"? They still stone people in certain parts of the world!

    If someone is intent on killing, they will find a tool for it. It can be a gun, an ax, a rock, a drug, a baseball bat, a knife ...
    I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.

    You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.

    the knife...LOL!!! i think im going to have a better chance of living if someone chases me with a knife vs aiming 30 feet and shooting me with a gun...the bow and arrow...give me a break....you will stick out like a sore thumb caring that combo down the street...that is what makes guns so dangerous...the pistols...someone can easily hide them when in there possession. And can do alot of damage in a short period of time.

    and that doesn't even take into consideration the cases where people are accidentally shot by the very firearms that were intended to protect them or their families.

    That is not a fair comparison. What would be fair is to look at the total murder rate. Remember, a gun is just a tool. If we ban guns, is the murder rate going to drop? That is, after all, the reason one would want a gun ban in place, isn't it?

    there is good and bad with guns and yes we hear about the bad all the time and always will. How many times though has a gun been used to scare someone away or to stop someone from hurting others?
    Something that always comes to mind is a standoff, say the person has a hostage and holding a knife to them. The most effective tool to stop this is a gun.
    I will agree that guns are a bad thing in the wrong hands and always will be.
    1sxy, I will agree that many people die by thier own gun but isn't that a safety thing more then anything?
    A gun laying down cannot kill anyone if no one is in the room or if no one pulls the trigger, it takes something more.

    There are probably more deaths per year from car accidents. Should we ban cars? Bring back the horse and buggy, force people into public transportation?

    Should we ban cars from everyone because certain people choose to kill with them?

    I'm sorry but banning guns would only make them assessible to criminals. I will fight for my constitutional right to the day I die. I will teach my kids just as I was taught and that is to respect guns.
