    Havent ever heard of a gun just crawling out or a drawer, loading itself and shooting someone.

    Intelligent gun owners however do not have it to Kill people anyway. It is a tool, to use in hunting, Self protection, and just for the fun of target shooting.

    You are reading more into the words of both Christ and Paul if you believe either of them advised anyone to arm themselves with anything other than word of God!

    A gun is a chunk of metal with no volition of its own. People have been killed by flying rocks, too, but usually there was a human hand holding it only moments before. So do rocks kill people? No. Again, killing is a decision. Rocks, guns, and bullets cannot make decisions. PEOPLE can.

    I agree and also think alot of people don't need a gun and more programs about guns and safety should be taught in schools.

    Gun ownership is a right, but it is also a decision. Because of my family, I dare not own a gun, although I am fascinated by the technology, and would love to own several.

    I can kill with a hammer, an axe, a bat, a screwdriver, a car, a bus, a truck, a knife, a spear, a club, a golf-club, a hockey-stick, a rock, a beer-bottle, a wine-bottle, a boat, a bathtub full of water, a noose, my hands, a good swift kick, a piece of glass, a rock, a push off a cliff, a push through a hole in the ice, a motorcycle, a spinning airplane propeller, by outrunning you when WE are being chased by a bear! Near as I can tell...I don't NEED a gun to KILL YOU! i do need a gun to protect me from someone this looney, though!

    There is no positive motive in play among those who want to eliminate the right of Americans to have and use firearms lawfully. That is exactly why they must never succeed.

    The gun doesn't change your mindset just because it is on your person.If someone wants you dead your going to be dead.

    No. It's a combination of both.

    If you carry a gun around, you're far more likely to kill someone than if you don't.

    Clearly you have no idea of what statistics are, and how they differ from anecdotal evidence. If you are unaware that some societies have much higher murder rates than others, I'll let you in on a little secret: they do. Societies where more people carry weapons around have higher murder rates. And that's what my post points out.
  • jojac seathan... 2011/09/03 01:22:54
    jojac
    But what is the real reason for higher murder rates in a free society, and who is responsible? Is it the decent, law abiding, willing to work person who regularly
    gives thanks to God for the gift of freedom, and who has respect for human life?
  • seathan... jojac 2011/09/06 21:17:13

    "who regularly gives thanks to God for the gift of freedom, "

    We will agree to disagree over that, since god-adherents have historically been the most dedicated opponents of most of the freedoms we now enjoy. I'm glad you personally respect human life; but religion has been, and still is, the largest organised force against respect for human life on the planet.

    "what is the real reason for higher murder rates in a free society"

    There isn't just one reason. It's simplistic and unrealistic to think there is. However, a comparison of violent societies with less violent societies reveals a lot of contributing factors - one being the number of people walking around carrying weapons. It's kind of obvious that if you carry a weapon you're more likely to use one than someone who doesn't carry one around.
  • jojac seathan... 2011/09/03 01:09:34

    By the same token, if you did not carry a gun, isn't it possible that you would not walk away from whatever situation you have in mind?
  • seathan... jojac 2011/09/06 21:18:07
    seathanaich
    Well, if every other person has one, and they are willing to kill you randomly and with little or no provocation, then I guess so. Is that what your society is like?

    In which society are there the most casual violent killings: the society where nobody carries guns, where 5% carry guns, or where 100% carry guns?

    All these people who claim to "carry" guns don't actually carry them around. There is a difference between carrying a gun around, and keeping one in your night table.

    People kill people, and other things, with the bullets from the guns they control.

    It is the minds of people that put into action the action of using a gun to kill.

    Are we really able to decide which is correct or which is incorrect. Seems to me that all who don't kill people are sane all that do are insane.

    But guns do help people kill people more easily, whether by accident or on purpose.
