    I'm not against having weapons but let's not act like they're saviors to any ******* that tries to get you.
    With that logic we should stop arresting drunk drivers because no matter what you do there is a possibility a drunk driver can still kill you. You are right there are times when no matter what you do someone can still kill you, but the point is you should have the right to have every option at your disposal.

    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!

    There is no good reason to have one.

    It is terrifying that there are people who think like this, that are allowed to walk among us and even vote. If there truely are people out there who feel this is a valid thought, PLEASE do us all a favor and leave thinking and decison making to those who have a clue.

    Damn you're right. Taking a shower is a life or death decision. WTF have you been smoking?

    Hmmm, I shouldn't think a gun could prevent me taking care of someone trying to enforce their will on me or my family? Damn dude, I really wish you would have said something sooner. We can just get rid of the Police and the military for that matter. FYI, they shower too!

    I am just amazed at the magical thinking some ppl on this issue seem to hold. FYI, those ppl that die from gun violence would prob end up dead from a knife or some other blunt object. Again, unless you are willing to ban things like renting vans, horse **** and diesel fuel the kind of violence you all are talking about will never end. We've been killing each other in mass since we only had rocks and a sticks to get the job done!

    Cool. So, if I buy an ant farm (who says that chocolate covered ants aren't good? ) - THEN, I can own a gun without you looking down upon me???

    Why didn't you just say so in the first place?

    Ahahaha right. Great rebuttal. I vote in a country where gun control exists and there are 1/10th of gun deaths per capita than in the USA and 1/5th of the murders per capita. Have a think about that. If I moved to America I would be 5 times more likely to be killed and 10 times more likely to be killed with a gun.

    Yep because knives and baseball bats are as lethal as a pistol or a rifle. You're making my point. YES people will always want to kill eachother. That's absolutely a given fact. So why on earth are you guys happy living in a country where people have easy access to weapons that make it incredibly easy to do so? If you can get a gun for self defence, it means someone who might want to kill you can get a gun as well. Wouldn't everyone be safer if neither of you could get a gun?

    I'm not saying taking everyone's gun away is at all realistic at this point. I'm saying if we could, the US would be a far safer place.

    It's nice to live in a country where it is incredibly difficult to obtain or own a gun and almost impossible to obtain an automatic weapon, yes.
