I hate guns! I hate toy guns. I even hate water guns. Hell, I'm not even letting my boys-to-be play with guns. They are dangerous weapons and they have enormous potential to kill people.  

I have been reading the news online as I always do and there has been accidental shooting where a little boy was shot. I do not call that an accident. Why use guns? Why are they needed? Do they not perpetuate the violence in our society? I definitely think they one of the many contributing factors as to why we are so violent.  

I heard through a friend who is a lawyer that there is a big crackdown on gun ownership. There has been an appeal to the public to hand in their firearms to a police station - hopefully the police then destroy them. This will then decrease the amount of guns that people have and contribute to a safer society. 

BUT, what about criminals who have guns? I doubt they acquire them by any legal means. How do we as a society try and curb this from happening? I, personally do not know!

If I were to have my way, I would liquidate all gun manufacturing businesses. Do they realise that what they make has a huge potential of killing people? I am sure they do, but who cares when you can make money from it, right?

Most guns used in crime are licenced - how sick?? So licenced gun owners sell their guns to criminals - how bout they take that to the judge?

that is just plain scary!!! I don\'t even want to think about that concept! So, basically, regular citizens are indirectly creating violence to an extent. Shocking!!! :eek :eek :eek

Humans are innately aggressive and seek power and control over the environment. The easiest way to gain control of resources (power and wealth) is through coercion and violence.

Weapons are the mean of controlling and protecting resources in order to make those in power rich. I support gun control because we need a means to defend ourselves. Crime wont go away ever unless poverty and many other factors are dealt with.

Aggressive energy needs to be released and often this is why there are programs for youth such as soccer etc to control this.

Are you going to liquidate all car manufacturers then? Lots of people killed or maimed by cars. :)

That is very different Wizard.
I think far mor people are deliberately killed and maimed by guns than by cars.
