Re: Guns should be BANNED
Its an unpopular belief.

But I am with you OP. 100%.

PEACE, NOT WAR.
 Quoting: teacup


We all want peace. But maybe you can give your advice on how a woman can protect herself and her children from would-be assailants. And how a man can protect his family from home invaders and the like?

Just looking for advice on how to survive in a violent society without the use of firearms?

What do innocent, law-abiding people do to protect themselves from aggressors?
 Quoting: Dried Up Hag


I have no gun. I know no-one with a gun. I walk down the street and I feel safe. I'm often home alone at night and I feel comfortable enough to keep the door unlocked.

I'm so very glad to be Australian today.
 Quoting: teacup


Hmm...glad that you feel safe. There are many people out there who have had these types of experiences....the unarmed and unprotected ones tend to be victimized and the ones who are able to defend themselves are often able to keep themselves safe. And sometimes, even, without firing a shot.

So, what you're saying is that you cannot relate to anyone who HAS had their lives and/or safety threatened.....and you have no other real advice for people who seek to protect themselves and their families from violence......

Re: Guns should be BANNED
I think all cars need to be banned, they kill way more people than guns and Doctors

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is
700,000.

(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians
per year are
120,000.

(C) Accidental deaths per physician
is 0.171

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of
Health and Human Services.

Now think about this:
Guns

(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S.
is
80,000,000.

(Yes, that's 80 million)

(B) The number of accidental gun deaths
per year, all age groups,
is 1,500.

(C) The number of accidental deaths
per gun owner
is .0000188

Statistics courtesy of FBI


So, statistically, doctors are approximately
9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'

FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,
BUT
Almost everyone has at least one doctor.

This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be
killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!!

Please alert your friends
to this alarming threat.

We must ban doctors
before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

Out of concern for the public at large,
We withheld the statistics on
lawyers
for fear the shock would cause
people to panic and seek medical attention!

Re: Guns should be BANNED
It is a common fantasy that gun bans make society safer. In 2002 -- five years after enacting its gun ban -- the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime. In fact, the percent of murders committed with a firearm was the highest it had ever been in 2006 (16.3 percent), says the D.C. Examiner.

Even Australia's Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research acknowledges that the gun ban had no significant impact on the amount of gun-involved crime:

In 2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent.
Sexual assault -- Australia's equivalent term for rape -- increased 29.9 percent.
Overall, Australia's violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.

Moreover, Australia and the United States -- where no gun-ban exists -- both experienced similar decreases in murder rates:

Between 1995 and 2007, Australia saw a 31.9 percent decrease; without a gun ban, America's rate dropped 31.7 percent.
During the same time period, all other violent crime indices increased in Australia: assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent.
Sexual assault -- Australia's equivalent term for rape -- increased 29.9 percent.
Overall, Australia's violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.
At the same time, U.S. violent crime decreased 31.8 percent: rape dropped 19.2 percent; robbery decreased 33.2 percent; aggravated assault dropped 32.2 percent.
Australian women are now raped over three times as often as American women.

While this doesn't prove that more guns would impact crime rates, it does prove that gun control is a flawed policy. Furthermore, this highlights the most important point: gun banners promote failed policy regardless of the consequences to the people who must live with them, says the Examiner.

Source: Howard Nemerov, "Australia experiencing more violent crime despite gun ban," D.C. Examiner, April 8, 2009.

You saw what happened yesterday. Now do you see the price of owning a gun? It leads to nothin but tragedy and pain.

You just CAN'T trust anyone with a gun these days.

Any ordinary person who could even be your best friend, could actually become a murderous psychopath.

The purchase of guns by civilians should now be made illegal and only allowed by the police and army. Thank god Obama has finally woken up and making steps to a gun free reality.

This is also one of the most stupid arguments going. We have a few bikie gangs with guns. Aside from that, most criminals are too stupid and lazy to go to the effort of getting a gun.

Most gun owners are farmers or just live rurally.

Prohibition of Guns, Marijuana and Drugs will make the drug "war" we currently have seem like Child's play. Now guns will be coming across the border from the Cartels too.
If you think about it, this is beautiful for For Profit Prisons, Banks, Governments and Cartels to increase their scope. A semi automatic pistol will cost 15 to 25 grand on the black market. Cartels will move into New Mexico, Texas, Colorado and California with no worries about armed citizens. Drugs will increase. Violence will increase.
