The US has the highest gun crime rate of any nation on Earth -- annually, there are 11,000 shootings in the US. Think of that. In France, there are 345. In Germany, 412. In the UK, 68.

    If you don't see the correlation between gun sales and gun crime, you're either blind or in denial.

    The UK has a far higher violent crime rate then the USA. Why is that? Could it be the Citizens of the UK are unable to defend themselves?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The argument that somone killed someone with a gun so we should ban all guns makes no sense. Using that logic we should go after cars first. They kill more people in a day than guns do in a year.

    1) I have problems with non citizens whining about our freedom
    2) your silly nonsense that a gun law is going to change the crime rate is contradicted by facts
    3) why has English rates of violent crime increased as they have banned guns while our rates have decreased as we have increased gun ownership
    4) If you factor out gun crime perpetrated by inner city black drug abusers, our gun rate crime is lower than whites in Europe and England. IN other words, a minority skews the statistics.

    5) you prove you are completely clueless about America when you void crap like "unrestricted gun sales"

    If the majority of legal car owners were conservatives and patriots believe me the left would be trying to ban them

    Shooting a fire arm in the military does not qualify you to be a 2nd amendment proponent or a proponent of firearms.
    I have a problem with unrestricted or lax gun sales laws.
    I think our laws should be loosened up.Anything the government can get its hands on so should any law abiding citizen. My founding forefathers did not like being ruled by some little rich inbreeder from across the ocean and they had a lack of trust in governments, so our constitution reflects this.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    wow, so many views on gun laws. wouldn't it be amazing if each locality could come up with their own laws and weren't dictated to by a larger bureaucracy.
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    I think people who are anti gun should post gun free zone signs on their doors and front lawns

    a town full of them would keep on the criminals out of a village where everyone had an NRA sticker on their window and the gun laws were consistent with what the founders intended

    Crime rates and gun crime rates are all relative. There isn't any less crime in the UK, because of gun laws. If anything, crime rates go up, after gun laws are enacted.

    Let's throw 30 million illegal aliens into France and see what happens to the crime rate.

    Bearing arms is a universal human right. The government of Illinois has no more right banning citizens from owning and carrying weapons than does the federal government.
