it is estimated there are over 85 million gun owners could be much higher it is estimated there are over 300 million guns if a different gun was used for every gun death in any given year that still means that less than 0.1% of guns are used for crimes and that the same can be said about gun owners any violent death is a terrible thing but the gun is not doing the crime people are more people are killed with bare hands than guns more people are killed with knives than guns more people are killed with other things like rocks or bats than guns it seems that over the last 20 years people have started to care less about other people people are less afraid of going to jail if they go at all the big "lets ban guns" thing really started when the mass killings started for some reason blaming the gun not the person, why don't they blame the person part of my guess is that during the same time frame people started making excesses for criminals - it's not his fault he didn't have a dad, or he was on drugs, or the latest one his family is so rich he doesn't know any better and by wanting to ban guns they are still blaming the gun and all other gun owners rather than the person trying to take guns away from law abiding people stops them from being able to protect themselves or their family it does not take guns away from criminals it does not give you a chance against 2 or more criminals it just makes you a future victim and what about all your other rights if they take away your right to have a gun then there is nothing to stop them from taking all the other rights away history has proved that
