Let's agree to disagree. Most countries don't have
such free gun laws as the 2nd amendment allows in the
United States, and are yet free and democratic. Every
time I bring up this subject, people tell to look at
the UK and the high crime statistics in a country that
is "ungunned". Well, first of all, the UK is still far
less violent than the United States, and criminals
will always have guns. The question is accesibility. I
didn't hear of many other countries with metal
detectors in high schools the way you have in the
United States. Second, I don't believe that the right
to bear arms will solve the problem of ctizens to
protect themselves, for two reasons -
mistakes/accidents (I remember a case where a Japanese
exchange student wanted to ask for directions and was
shot by a man because he entered his property); and
thefact that not every citizen wants to be a militia
man. I had a gun (and gas) when I was in the military.
I'm afraid to say that I'm glad no rapist or terrorist
came in my way because I would have surely shot myself
or some innocent by stander.
