"Evil people kill people with anything they can get their hands on."
Take away guns, and they'll break out the knives, grenades, poison, bare fists, water, carbon monoxide, hell f*ckin baseball bats.
Take away guns, and you tell me how many people in Detroit Michigan who AREN'T criminals are gonna have a backup defense.
Take away guns and you tell me how you're gonna defend yourself against a 7 foot muscle man who breaks into your house to rape and kill the wife and kids. Heck maybe even the man of the house.
Take away guns and you tell me how that's going to stop the illegal distribution of them.
Criminals will ALWAYS get their hands on their drugs and guns no matter HOW illegal they are. God you people and this argument are so ignorant to those who might feel a little safer in their home at night by having one. Sheesh.
Do not judge the individual by the many, nor should you judge the many by the individual. Each person is responsible for their own choices, therefore we should only judge the individual by his own merit. Humanity is not, on the whole, evil. there are only some who decide to do evil only to further their own goals. Hate begets more hatred, thus love begets more love.
Choose to love others as you would love yourself, and the world just might end up a better place...
Problem I saw was never whether people with guns kill, but who was carrying them, and who gets killed. Interesting statistic: The average number of deaths in a shooting stopped by the police:13 The average number of deaths in a shooting stopped by an armed Civilian:3
