Just read the post about how many cm moms have guns and why. There were a bunch of women saying that because people defend the gun laws and the right to bear arms, that they themselves are perpetuating the violence. I was wondering, for those of you that agree, do you feel that making guns illegal would solve all the gun problems? Should it just be civilians who are not allowed to bear arms or everybody? When soldiers come home from war should they be stripped of their arms when they return to civilian status, even though they have been properly trained in their use? What about the people who carry guns illegally already? Stolen or whatever, do you think outlawing guns in the us would make it harder for them to obtain fire arms? How could you be sure that if guns were outlawed that you could get them all out of the country? What about people that have handed them down through heirlooms? Should the law be you may own but not be allowed to use? And what would your argument be for those women who say they have them for protection? What should they do if faced with an intruder who has a gun? Or is posing a serious threat to their family where police intervention would take too long? Should hunters be included? Would you outlaw all guns or just hand guns?
For those of you answering I don't expect you to answer all those questions. But their just some things I started to wonder as I read peoples positions on gun laws.
