So first i want people to understand... i like guns, really, i like the smell of gun powder, i like the adrenaline shooting them, i was weapons
trained relatively young as i was in the cadets, im seriously considering joining a gun club so i can shoot again.
My opinion here is not based on disliking guns, is not based on my desire to watch the American constitution burn, i don’t think the banning of guns
will solve all the crime based problems in the US
i also appreciate Gun owners on here like to argue there points etc, and this is why i put this in rants, because this is my Rant about the issue,
this is why the forum destroying opinions on here annoy me so much...
United Kingdom ! United Kingdom
0.25 (2010) 0.04 (2010) 0.18 (2010) 0.01 (2010) 0.02 (2010)
United States ! United States
10.3 (2011) 3.60 (2011) 6.30 (2011) 0.30 (2011) 0.10 (2011)
So those figures are
Per 100,000 people within the country
Total (calculated) Homicides Suicides Unintentional Undetermined
So as you can see straight off the back, in UK where Gun control (especially for recreational usage) is much tighter, there is a massive difference in
murders throughout the UK a huge difference in suicides to.
If you don’t have access to a gun, you cannot commit a crime of passion with it, emotions can make you shoot someone if you don’t have a gun to
shoot someone with, you can shoot yourself if you don’t have a gun to shoot yourself with…
the LOGIC in the argument for guns is flawed as if you have a gun you can use it…
Although I understand the second amendment, I understand the right to protect yourself, we in the UK banned guns… and we get killed by guns less…
this is fact!
Alas there shall be a flame war but it’s my opinion!!
