Guns are made for one thing...to kill. A vehicle is made for transportation.
And? The point of the OP was not about what things are used for. It is about removing guns because guns kill people. The fact is, there are lots of
things that can kill people. I do not see anyone rushing to remove cars, knives, rope, pharmaceutical drugs or even water from society.
Guns are made to kill, and sometimes killing is needed. If you are a hiker, do you think you can reason with a Grizzly Bear?
And of course your assuming the person who is there to take your weapon is not well trained...the only person it ends bad for is...you....but
live in la la la land.
No sir, YOU are assuming that I mean it will end badly for whomever comes to get my gun, but that is not what I said. I said, "you can try, but it
will end badly". I never said who it would end badly for.... but if you want me to expand on my answer, the truth is it would end badly for ALL
involved. If I die, it ends badly for me and my family and the person who shoots you usually carries around some type of mental or emotional scar from
it. If I dont die, well guess what Skippy? It still end badly for me. Do you think you can fire on Police or Military and not suffer a consequence for
your action? Someone here is living in la la la land but it is not me. I would suggest it is the person who assumes to know the intent behind my
words without actually comprehending what it is I have said.
Criminals have access to guns in America because they are everywhere...guess what...other countries with limited access are not controlled by
criminals...people do not have to live in fear constantly. This is just a dream world that gun owners create in their heads.

No your presentation of facts is the dream world. I do not live in fear constantly. I do not know anyone who lives in constant fear of being shot,
except for people who live in crime infested areas. The funny part is, those who do live in crime infested areas are more scared of being shot by
Police than the dope dealers and gang bangers.
The fact is, let us pretend for a moment that every gun is taken away in the US. Legal guns, illegal guns. No criminals have guns and no law abiding
citizens have guns. People will just use a different tool to kill someone. The fact is, if someone wants to kill you, they will have a chance to do so
just by you living your every day life. The U.K. doesn't have guns, but you can read a story daily of someone who was stabbed with a knife instead. So
does that make things better?
