I much rather have a conceal & carry liscense though.
I am from Alaska and can cite many reasons to carry a gun. For hunting for food and protection from a thousand something pound Griz for one. Just for fun is another. You can't control crime by banning weapons because criminals will be the only ones armed. I know you said you're not calling for a weapons ban but, why should anyone have to give you a reason to want to own a weapon?

And by the way, I haven't stated anywhere in this thread that I am calling for the banning of guns. I have stated in a number of gun control arguements on this website that I am not for the banning of guns. I just don't like the reasons people give for why guns should be allowed. Most of them don't hold any water with me.
I don't think more guns reduces crimes. Sure it may reduce break and enters, but it is going to raise murders and it is going to raise accidental deaths, not a fair trade in my opinion.
The reason that I don't support gun control is because I don't like the government telling me what to do, and not because of any of the arguements that people have stated in this thread.
