Potatos and beer should be outlawed in Ireland.

Because, unfortunately, there is a lot of violent crime in this country, and many of those committing those crimes have guns.

Believe me, I'd love it if I lived in a country where I felt safe without one, but I don't here.

"And if the perpetrator does not have a gun also, there should be no issue."

And if the perpetrator *does* have a gun? That's the point.

If somebody breaks into my house I am not interested in giving him a fair fight. Down he goes until the police and paramedics haul him off.

You could save a thousand times more lives by banning cars. Soo... ban all the cars, then?

How many lives have been lost because someone slipped on tile floor? Ban all the tile floors!!!

How many lives have been lost because an innocent child stuck his finger in a light socket?? Ban electricity!!!!!!

How many...

You get the point. Wait, no you don't. You started this thread.

No worries about a pub arguement and the loser goes to his car, grabs a gun and shots the winner.
-Happens bi-weekly in my city alone.

No accidentily shooting your 15 year old step son who was playing a prank on his aunt.
-Well, yeah you got me.

No random black kid getting shot by the neighbourhood watch.
-That's kind of racist... but whatever. You've shown where you stand on the issue and it isn't worth arguing against your point. You have your opinions, we have ours. We live in different situations.

If I find them there at night, they'll be found there in the morning. ;)

Do you know anyone that has had their home broke into while they were there?

Why would he be breaking into your house, if he is not allowed to break into your house?

*facepalm* Seriously... no, seriously seriously? "Why does he have a gun?!" Because he's a f****** criminal!

Holy sh... I don't even... How could you not...

I think the existence of this thread is the silliest statement on this thread.

I'm going to have to disagree and say that your statement about why a criminal has a gun is the silliest statement in this thread...

Didn't you see my post? Criminals are surprisingly honest.

Instant jail time for breaking into your house? I fail to see how your argument makes sense.

Maybe that comes down to where you live. I don't own one and I've never felt unsafe not owning one. I'd kind of like one, as discussed in the other thread, but it's not very important to me.

Do you really think people don't have illegal things? Most fireworks are illegal where I live but in the summer I always end up with a decent supply. Illegal guns aren't that hard to score.

Yeah, I saw it. Honestly, that's the only thing that matters. The U.S. also banned drugs. And that was it. We never saw a single drug ever again.

Yes. Not unusual for California.
