I've never agreed with firearms. but i don't deny that they do make one feel safer.
Ever heard the term a gun is only as dangerous as it's user?
Anything can be used in a violent manner it just depends on the individual.
Yes a gun was made for the purpose of killing, but they can be used under restricted circumstances.
Like a person has to go through a police enforced training programme to make that individual fully aware of the implications.
But no matter what sort of law gets thrown out there will always be hidden transactions and black market schemes.
I think the majority of firearms a person weilds in their own home should be replaced with the stun guns given to police.
Effect quick and doesnt kill the assailant.
