Never needed a gun, @CreamK: Well lucky you! Neither have I actually, lucky me too! But every year, in every country on Earth, there is: Rape Murder Assault Robbery People hit by lightning.
Is that last one a joke? No. We pass laws to PUNISH those who offend, to prevent them from raping & etc again. If we passed a laws requiring everyone to carry a lightning rod around with them, would that be a good idea? It might save a life or two, but at what cost? Insted we allow people the FREEDOM to determine how to PROTECT themselves. From rape or lightning.
Banning guns removes that freedom. It takes away that protection BY FORCE.
Or limits it exclusively to "the rich". You like that idea? I don't.

in all fariness, how much i dont like guns and i am for stricter gun laws, i have no thought what so ever that it wont create a safer world. its not just gun control to keep people from killing eachother. yes with a gun it is easier, but in all fairness, bombs work too, hell a metal bar works.. so, stricter gun laws? i am for it, will it prevent mass masacre's like sandy hook? well, i hope so but in all fairness, it will only make it harder, and not by much.
I guess the discussion should be how we can prevent sandy hooks, not how we limit or promote gun use.
(that being said, if you cant get a gun, you cant use it either, but thats my 2 cents)

It only takes one 5Cat to ruin a perfectly good message... For once some kind of rationality, even when it's pro-gun (i think) and i`m anti, this kind of discussion presented in the video is useful.. But bad monsters at every corner, man you`re delusional (or was it conservative, you know the people who are more afraid, a fact that`s been proven...). Never needed a gun, have been pointed at them at worst possible situations, never needed violence even when threatened and never had to beg or give out any of my possession (got some bumb and bruises and a lot of pride)... I`ve had enough experience to know that the world we both live in, is a relatively safe place indeed. No need to be frightened, at all.

Problem is McGovern- that reasoning works well if I am the only one with the only gun. But everone thinks that- so they all have guns too, which is worse than none of us having 'em...
