Why do you think that disarming us will help?

Firearm related crime is on the increase thanks to the ever increasing availaility of firearms from the former eastern block countries.
A crazy with a knife can kill as many if not more than a person with a gun...i live in spain and 1 year ago a nurse went crazy and killed 8 people in her hospital with a carving knife....what do we do now...BAN CARVING KNIVES...
PEOPLE and NOT weapons KILL.
Maybe the dark powers that be in the good ole USA are frightend that come the days of the new world order and marcial law that the people with the fully auto rifles will prove a problem when the new order tell them...your days of liberty are finished..the less people on the streets with firearms the better...and for them when only the government have guns all the better...bit by bit your libertys are fading away until you´ll have nothing left..and you cant fight it...why....BECAUSE YOU AINT GOT A GUN.....
Another irony is that the some of the more fervent pro-gun crowd dont see that they are driven by fear. Driven by fear and under the illusion that a gun will protect them.

I still fail to see why most of you anti-gun people try so hard to ban something that will most likely never affect you, banning guns WILL affect the gun owners, it wont affect you, dont punish us because of the actions of the few.
It is rather funny how you claim we are the ones in fear and thats why we have guns, seems like you anti-gun people are the ones in fear.

What amazes me is that the select few on the Pro-Gun side of things cant -or wont - acknowledge some basic fundamental truths.
ie; More guns in circulation = more guns in the hands of criminals.
Not all guns, just assault weapons.
In other words - weapon in which the only useful purpose for is to "assault" other people.
You might want to Googlesearch the stats on gun use in defending the home or person.
