    again, no one argues against restrictions on how you use gun. But that isn't what you want-you want to restrict ownership so private citizens cannot own guns.

    The EQUIVALENT analogy is banning people from owning cars

    No because car ownership is a necessity not a luxury like gun ownership.

    And it's not an equivalent.

    The question is why do a few irresponsible people cause a law to cover everyone?



    Here's the question again: Why should good drivers be forced to obey speed limits because of a few people who can't handle their vehicle above that speed ?

    When you can answer that, you'll begin to understand why people support banning guns.

    how is car ownership a necessity? My brother is a resident of Tribeca, He doesnt own a car.

    People who support banning guns are generally from these groups

    1) hard core leftwing activists who see gun control as a way to punish conservative voters

    2) pillow headed utopians who think banning guns will advance public safety

    3) pimps in office who pander to voters-especially those in #2 or #4

    4) ignorant people who think doing so will deter criminals

    5)people how are worried about being shot by armed citizens-such as criminals

    What about victims or potential victims of gun crime ?

    How about police officers dealing with the uncertainty they may not finish their shift alive ?

    How about concerned parents ?

    Businessmen nervous of armed robberies ?

    Doctors who work long hours every weekend treating gun shot wounds ?

    Everyday, ordinary people who don't want to live with the risk of being shot ?

    all of those people have the police and the court system to protect their "rights" if they are harmed

    your "right" to not be afraid is not a valid argument for restricting my right to be armed just as someone's right to be a virgin is not grounds to emasculate men in his or her geographic area.

    The threat of punishment for actually harming someone is all that is needed or acceptable in a free society. I'd hate to see your solution for preventing rape or pick-pocketing

    Of course punishment is harming someone - it's why we call it punishment. From the verb "to punish"

    You can of course teach prevention by teaching women how to be less vulnerable to rape - an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    However, what is your solution to preventing rape other that the threat of punishment by sending rapists to jail ? Would you focus on "educating" potential rapists ?

    well your analogy would be registering penises at first and then emasculating all men-except those who work for the government

    Only a rabid, conservative gun owner, clutching at straws, would equate gun registration as a means to combat gun misuse to registering a penis. Let's just say for the vast majority of males such ownership is implied.


    Next you'll equate mandatory castration to gun confiscation. That a man who sees his guns confiscated is equivalent to a man whose been castrated.
