Gun is not a necessity of life. Destruction is its nature, no matter what is the purpose we using it. And guns and terrorists are always together. So everyone has a gun will be a nightmare to the general public, some small unhappy things may result in unnecessary bloodshed.

No i don't think that we all should have guns or other weapons. the only weapon that we all should have is our knowledge.it's the most powerful weapon.

What do YOU think?


Criminals already have guns and will alvays have them. So the question is if it would be safer if good citizens had guns. I feel it would be definetely safer for them to have a gun in situations when they are far from a city and the police might not arrive timely. For example my parents would definetely feel more secure if they had a gun when they spend time in a small cottage and there are few neighbours around.

When everybody has guns the chances of shooting each other multiply. Only the police, the armed forces, and certain individuals who can prove they need guns should carry them.

I think that having a gun itself is not tragedy , but using it is something different.

If there was no weapons in the world today, people would be fighting each other with swords. I believe no one should have a gun. It is so easy for an accident to happen.

I think that nobody should have a gun, because, for what do we need it :?:
Only think about it. If everybody has a gun what are we going to do :?: Kill everybody :cry: and when you have killed every one...[color=#000000]WHAT
:?: :?: Are you going to kill yourself also :!: :?: :shock:no, I think that the world will be a better place if guns or any weapons doesn't exist. Because if anyone has a gun or any weapon life will be much easier, without a gun or a weapon we could not kill or injure anyone, so the besat thing is :!: weapons desapearing

From my point of view,it 's unlogical think that the violence can be erradicated with more violence,so we don't really need guns or weapons if we are able to discussion with the others in a pacific way :wink:

Only security agents (police, rent a cops, etc.) should have guns in my opinion, and maybe is a good thing too that they had, but if it's a radical choice between nobody and everybody, then I prefer nobody. That's the way I've been brought up, to fear guns and to try to solve things with words rather than with violence. It's very curious the disparity of opinion between Americans and Europeans in that respect, I wonder if there's something genetic in that.

Nobody should have a gun.. NO AND NEVER!!

Because when same people get angry they take a wrong decision like useing the gun.´They can also use another things but its dont go so fast like a gun!!

Its take 2sec. to take a gun and shoot a person. and after few minutes. the person will be dead.
But it will also take 2 sec. to take a spoon,fork or pot.. but more then 10 minutes. to kill the person!!
Live your life so that when you die,you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying

Yeah,but if someone kills you with a gun it`s better than to kill toy with something else,cuz the pain is smaller.

Yes there will be more pain but. When the murder not use a gun.. But you will have more time to run a way,and you will not be very hurt the first hit! But if is it a gun you will be half dead the first hit!

Nobody should have a gun. In my opinion all thinking people must hate guns. I detest violence with my whole being. The gun violence is a serious social problem. So many people lost friends, family members, loved ones to gun violence. I think if nobody had a gun, nobody would shoot to death by a gun. by Lydia

Nobody should have a gun. The reason as following in my opinion, people must hate guns and I dislike violence with my complete.

The gun violence is a serious social problem in some countries. Under the terms of the criminologist Philip J. Cook hypothesizes that if guns were less available, criminals may likely commit the crime anyway but with less-lethal weapons. He finds that the level of gun ownership in the 50 largest U.S. cities correlates with the rate of robberies committed with guns, but not overall robbery rates.

In a word, so many people lost friends, family members, loved ones to gun violence. I think if no one had a gun, nobody will be shot by a gun. by Lydia
