The statistics say there are 90 guns for every 100 people in the USA. Most of those guns are owned for the purpose of hunting or target shooting, maybe someone who likes to collect them. You will find that stating they have guns for protection is added by most of those people. Of course thats the one statement most projected by the media and ridiculed by non-gun people, thats the one that realistically makes the least amount of sense. As a gun owner and hunter I see that, unless your "packing" 24/7 thats not going to happen much. In 2011, there were 8775 murders using a gun in the USA. Now there are over 300 million people in this country and even if you say only 1 million of them own guns, your going to take away the right of 1 million people because of the deaths of 8775? Those seem like pretty good odds to me! Especially when you throw in the fact that events like the ones in Colorado, both the movie shootings or the Columbine shooting, all could have easily been prevented if people, many times paid for by taxpayers, had done their jobs. The psychiatrist reported her concerns to the university authorities. What was done? Nothing. Teachers and school administrators observed and were told about bullying many times. What used to be done? Nothing. And according to many, many stories we read in the news, a lot of times today, nothing is still being done about it in many places. NO, do NOT take away the rights of atleast a million people because of the preventable deaths of a few thousand. Do something about the sick minded people who put their finger around a trigger and pull it, taking a human life. And somehow in this country, get people to have more respect for themselves and their jobs and do them!
