    A pool isn't designed to kill humans or animals... You can do without weapons made for only ONE thing. To murder.

    Hunt deer with pistols, great idea.
    Why do you even need to hunt?

I'm fine with responsible people owning guns, I'm not fine with how lax gun laws are that irresponsible people can easily get extremely deadly weapons. There are an absurd number of accidental shootings in Texas, the sad part is many of them are children shooting other children. There are too many people who own guns and don't teach their children proper gun safety or practice it themselves. I have never fired a gun and yet I know basic gun safety.

    The laws we have in place do NOT have strict enough requirements to ensure that the only legal gun owners are responsible enough to own firearms. We need laws that require more training before you're allowed to own a gun, it isn't any more unreasonable than the requirement of a drivers license. Both vehicles and guns can easily be deadly weapons, however one is very easy to get while the other requires a large time investment and demonstration of responsibility.

    pools are not made for killing ppl, nor can i use a pool in my drunken rage to kill you, nor to pool gangs to pool battle in the streets, nor to kids take pools to school and kill all the pupils.

    pretty stupid thing to say honestly.

    Again my guns arnt made to murder, they are made for accuracy competitions. Sure they could be used for murder, but so can my computer monitor, my keyboard, my truck, my toilet.

    Just because you can kill people with something, doesn't automatically make it's sole purpose killing.

    Pathetic. You pro gun nutjobs can never come up with any real excuses or reasoning so you revert to jokes.

    Like lamb to the slaughter.
    I'm sorry, which nation invented the term 'friendly fire', simply due to the fact that they were so trigger happy that they killed their own troops?

    For your information, handguns and rifles were legal in the UK until about 15 years ago when someone went nutty and shot up a school. Guess what? We banned them for everyone's safety, and didn't cowtow to a bunch of gun-nuts who thought they could take over the country if they were threatened.

    So shooting deers is not murdering the deer? What do you even want to achieve with this and some other of your posts?

    No matter what you say guns are made by humans to murder other humans. Once again a monitor, keyboard, truck or toilet are not. You can shoot at targets all you want but guns are at there core made to shoot humans.

    So ban bows then while we're at it, cause that too is what their secondary purpose is for

    Why? I thought I used a tool only made for killing? Yet, I still have not after pulling the trigger that many times. Wierd huh?

People act as if the gun itself is the root of all evil... it's an inanimate object.

    I think it basically comes down to the fact that people are so willing to trade away any sense of freedom in the name of a false security. I will never understand why people continue to put so much faith in Government when it never has and never will be able to protect you. We should be teaching people how to protect themselves while advocating responsible ownership of firearms.

    I never want to be in a situation where I'm unable to defend myself or my family because Government (or society for that matter) dictates that I ring the police and wait 15-45 minutes for a response. It's irresponsible, juvenile and at the end of the day, stupidity. And yet I'm the paranoid guy when half of society is walking around afraid of their own shadow?
    There is no need to own a gun, no need at all unless you live in the middle of no where and expect nightly attacks by packs of rabid wolves.


    If you own a gun, you can guarantee anyone less law abiding owns one to, it ups the ante and means people carry guns out of necessity or perceived necessity.

    There is no reason to own a gun other than to kill people. Thats it, thats all they do. there is no practical use, there is no job made easier with a gun other than murder.

    I dont fear guns, I dont live in fear of people shooting me, why? because guns are not prevalent in my society. are Americans naturallly more homicidal than europeans? I doubt it, and yet the number of murders is massively higher in the country with gun ownership....wonder why?
    capitalism works you say?

    Having a gun will probably give you the thought that you got some kind of power.
    You don't like a guy?.....He won't be there for any longer.

    And if you didn't know..there are some insane people out there.

    Bows were made for tools of war. They go in the same pot as guns. There is ZERO reason to own a bow in 2014. Tools of war have no place in civilian homes.
