Guns don't kill people, users do.
Yeah true, but I think the gun helps... Just standing there and shouting "BANG!" isn't going to kill too many people.
o what's your solution to this issue? Restriction of gun permissions, putting a ban on gun possesion, or complicated procedures to acquire guns?
Think about healthy man, who wants to use gun as a hobby, or protect his family against criminals/animals. One nut can effectivly cow society and therefore limit their chance to protect themselves.
I don't think anyone has any problem with someone owning a gun provided it is appropriate to do so. In my opinion it is not appropriate for every single person to own a gun, because it is inevitable that there will be people among that group that shouldn't be anywhere near a gun. However by putting appropriate checks in place that the people who get guns are sensible enough, then surely that drastically reduce instances of, say, mentally ill people taking a gun into a church and taking 28 innocent lives before a supposed NRA member with a carry has time to react to it?
On the other side of the argument, if every single person should have a gun then why restrict it to Americans? When I visit the USA, why not give me a gun upon entry to be used only for "protection"?
