Outlaws With Guns…

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns
-Unknown

The politically correct way to prevent shootings such as those at Virginia Tech is completely banning guns of any kind. Furthermore, I, of course, oppose gun control of any kind. Our second Amendment states “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” The Bill of Rights, or the first ten Amendments, came into effect December 15, 1791. Congress threw the second Amendment in there for a reason; it wasn’t to make it easy for criminals to have guns, but actually to keep the public armed so that if necessary, could protect themselves from either our own government, if necessary, or a foreign threat.

Many people state that if owning a gun was illegal, or even harder to accomplish, crime and violence rates would plummet. This has no evidence to support it. For one thing, it was illegal for the kid to have the two guns on the campus. He didn’t care about the laws, because he wasn’t worried about what would happen if he violated them. Criminals are just that, criminals. They violate the law. Another thing, if guns were illegal, then you would start to see crime for the guns. Right now narcotics are illegal in the U.S., and you see many crimes committed to get the drugs to whom is buying them. If guns were illegal, you would start to see crimes committed to get the guns to buyers. If there is a demand, there will be a supply.

One might state that less guns on the street equals less crime, yet even this is false. Kennesaw, Georgia has a law that states, with a few exceptions, that every household in the county must own and maintain a firearm. The law went into effect in 1982. Between 1982 and 1999, there was a total of three murders in the county. Yet in 1996 it had over 13,000 citizens, no small number. Furthermore, of the three murders, two of them were with knives. In Kennesaw, crime rate is extremely low, and I will explain why. Imagine if you were a thief. Imagine that you knew one house had an owner with a gun inside at the current comment, and then you also knew that a house on the other side of the block had an owner without a gun. Thinking for your own life, which house would you rob? Unless your motive was to steal the gun and sell it, you would of course have chosen house number two. In Kennesaw, people think before they do something. They know that if they break the law, they could easily lose their life during the process of breaking it. After all, I would rather have a gun and not need it, rather to need a gun and not have it.

    I LOVE YOU!!!!! That is like totally how I feel! See I tried explaining this stuff to Mary Beth but she didn’t get it. I stop trying to tell her because people who like to create their own little Utopias really really make me angry. The world is not a Utopia it will never be. For example, you know in the Bible that in the Garden of Eden there were 4 people. Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel. And Those 4 people couldn’t get along. Cain killed Abel! I mean hello! There is in the world the two forces of Good and Evil, God and Satan, Black and White, anyway you get it. this things will always be with us and you should just accept that and get on with it.

    I prefer to state that slogan as “If we outlaw guns, won’t the outlaws just keep theirs?”

    this is a great post, except you missused the word you in place of the word “your” which makes you seem less credible.

  4. Rick Says:

    Anthony, please shut the hell up. If you are going to criticize grammar make sure you know how to capitalize.

    Thank you for being an idiot Anthony. You make the world a place to be pissed off at.

    Oh, and great article, I have been arguing this exact point for years.

    Hey antoney or whatever your name really is. Don’t name people that you don’t really know. If Matt made a mistake in spelling, haven’t you done the same yourself? You didn’t provide any input anyway, so you are just tits on a bull.

    But, anyway, back to the topic at hand. Let’s try to look at this objectively. I don’t know if I can, but I will try.

    Canada tried to do this and they went in and took all their guns, that were not used for hunting. Confiscated all the handguns , for sure. Guess what? Crime went up 48% last year. Of course they will not admit that. They will say that it is due to population growth, the influence of Americans, etc.

    Fact is, gun control doesn’t work. People will always have their guns and alcohol no matter what you do. And I recommend not doing anything that might piss them off.*
