    And worse:
    You don't need no ID to vote in many regions.
    Some people always block motions to introduce such laws...

    Guns aren't the Problem.
    And if you know the statistics, you see that there is no correlation between (legal) Gun Ownership and Murder Rate. On the Contrary!

    And if you want to murder someone, you can do it with a Brick, an Axe, a Shovel, a Screwdriver. Or just do some cement in a Towel. There are ways...

    But lets look at it that way:
    If you had guns.
    And the right to defend yourself and family against harm.

    Do you think things such as Rotherham would have been possible at all??
    Do you think that would be possible for example in Texas? Where its said that everyone has a gun?? Where you can shoot people to protect others from harm??

    That would never have happened because guns are also a deterrent. So if everyone is armed and can assist the law, unlawful behaviour suddenly becomes rather dangerous or even suicidal...

    Yes!
    Why you doubt that?!

    Look at the Statistics!

    Its not the Guns that are the problem, its the Gangs and other Criminal Enterprises that cause most of the Murder by Gun.
    And many of the Gun Deaths are Suicide...

    The Media is totally disingenuous about Guns...

    You see that best in London! There ain't no guns there. And whats happening there? You get stabbed instead...
    Or sprayed with acid...

    I sort of agree with him.

    People who use guns maliciously will do so even with the strictest gun laws. People that simply want a fire arm for protection are actually discouraged by doing so because it is so difficult to obtain a firearm legally.

    They're on a freaking island.

    Flip side to that: Chicago rates go up as laws become more strict.

    You'll never get to the point where the same gun laws are everywhere making it harder for criminals to get illegal weapons.

    By the way: This week along one police officer and one FBI agent in California left the cars unlocked and had their firearms stolen. Deerrrrrrrrrrrrp!!
