I consider myself quite left wing (someone here had "liberal libertarian" or something as a tag-that's a good description of me) but I own 4 guns because I'm a history buff and it's a ton of fun to shoot things.

I live in the UK (Scotland to be more specific) and...guns have been outlawed here completely since 1997. It is near impossible to get a gun in this country and it's impossible to get one legally unless you happen to be a farmer and it's for a humane purpose. I am twenty-two years old and I have never seen a gun before... Here's an idea, get rid of all guns and nobody has to fear them anymore.

While many Americans don't know it, one of President Obama's main goals while in office is to ban firearms for the public and abolish the 2nd ammendment. I'm here to tell you all why that is a very bad idea.

Additionally, a person is not justified in using deadly physical force if he knows he can avoid doing so with complete safety by:
1. retreating, except from his home or office in cases where he was not the initial aggressor or except in cases where he a peace officer, special policeman, or a private individual assisting a peace officer or special policeman at the officer's directions regarding an arrest or preventing an escape;
2. surrendering possession to property the aggressor claims to own; or
3. obeying a demand that he not take an action he is not otherwise required to take.

I do not own a gun and I do not want a gun. Any firearms promote a violence.
The most people what "scare" me with guns are the Law Enforcement in any form. The can kill innocent person and "walk away" free of any charges.
If you want to feel safe - write petition to your Governor to enforce existing gun law.
Draft all gang members to serve in military - that will solve the shortage and disarm all Law Enforcement officers. That way the law obedient citizens will have no reason to fear and firearms will not be needed.
There are many ways to stop the opponent without taking a life.
