usa is the example. No this law shouldnt exist
guns help people in killing people
most people dont need protection, do you really need a gun driing prius?
im progun prolife prochoice and prodeathpenalty
50k people are murdered every year on Brazil, i think giving more gun to a dumb population will not decrease these crimes. We need education, maybe then people will realize that they will live only 1 time and stop fucking their own life killing people
yes i want to shoot in my garden
The most prevalent reason for owning a firearm is because people don't want to be less powerful than the state. For example the reason the USA has legalized guns is because the individual must always hold enough power to ever overthrow the government or defend your self against it. Thus the second amendment saying that someone has "the right to bear arms". That's also not limited to guns either so technically in the future when a whole plethora of weapons are used people may own and use them all and in this way you can see that the second amendment does have basis behind it and i don't think anti-gun activists really understand this. However in reality a coup will never really be needed in places like the USA because most things can be resolved by the means of democracy.
Personally i have no problem with guns as long as it is extremely hard to get one and not sold to anyone over 18.
All people shouldn't have guns. The issue with anti-gun policies is that in country like the US so many people already have guns it doesn't help much to restrict selling them from now on.
fact anyone even asks is so dumb
People always use the "government tyranny" excuse, but Jim Bob and his militia aren't gonna last too long against heat seeking drones.
I think guns are a need. How else you win in CSGO game. With a knife? Not possible man. Let the guns stay.
We have already lost bots, don't let Valve take our guns.
Definitely yes. Currently waiting for the exam date so i can conceal carry. Due to corona it was already 2x postponed...
People here dont realize that people who kill with guns dont care abosut laws. Killing is prohibited by law, isnt it?
This is a really broad statement and problems are very nuanced even starting with the area you live in and society in that area.
no, if we got rid of guns we would never need them 5head
just look at the school shooting stats in america compared to other countries, i am not pro gun
People are fucking retards, they dumb, overly sensitive and emotional ... yeah give them all a gun, lay back, grab some popcorn and enjoy the new Purge Movie in front of you door
I agree, cuz bad people will always find a way to find a weapon and use it against good people , wheter it's a gun or kitchen knife , therefore good people should have an access to DEFEND THEMSELVES with a gun. Why gun u ask ? Well, let's take womans into this discussion. Objectively, average woman is much weaker than average man and a pistol as a self defence would reduce that difference. But u know why is it prohibited in so many countries ? Cuz the ruling parties are affraid one day people will see what politicians do to normal people and uses guns as a force to kick them out of their chairs. That's why it is prohibited.
imo no, just make the law more harsh so people think twice because even if they get caught the punishment is too weak to discourage them from trying to attempt to do a crime again, and most polacks wouldn't do anything clever with gun so its better not to give it to them
Sandy Hook. People are dumb. Can't fight against it. But I can laugh on, how fucked up this world is. heh :)
You definitely need a gun my friend, as suicide is being the leading cause of death worldwide 18-25, it might have a great impact on you. Which should be considered. Have fun!
Unarmed population is easy to control, simple as that.
No. No one should have guns
I'm against guns. Civilians can not get guns in Sweden, only way to get guns in Sweden is to become a licensed hunter or a cop.
Not only im pro gun, but I also have a raging boner for girls with guns
I am pro gun, but that quote you used is just stupid
I would suspect HLTV teenagers are mostly pro gun because guns are exciting to them
if guns dont kill people, then why are there 21392319 school shootings every day in the US, the most pro-gun country in the west
On a scale from 'ban all guns' to USA I'm somewhere in the middle.
Depends on the population + the mentality of said population and the rules on gun ownership.
I'd be pro gun in Switzerland for example but against it in the US not like it matters at this point because there's too much guns in circulation.
I believe countries such as Sweden have really good and balanced gun laws
My 15 years of kickboxing
Handguns and hunting rifles? Sure. Assault rifles? No.
Guns help people killing people, but so do knives, point being people who commit murders dont care anyway and outlawing all guns would only hurt innocent people who want to defend themselves.
look at london number of stabbings if people dont have gun they will find a way. Yes i believe people should have guns for protection all tho I wouldent be against mental health screenings every 6 months or so.
Yes, I am pro-gun because I believe that there are sane people that should be allowed to bear arms and help keep certain animals from over-populating our country.
However, I don't want a retarded situation like in the US with barely any background checks and guns everywhere. I wouldn't feel safe anywhere in the US with 50IQs walking around with guns.
US is infested by gun toting donald trump supporters
yes. guns exists. people who wants guns will get them anyway.
prohibiting does nothing, in brazil people still have acess to guns even if they aren't legal. a guy once offered to sell me and old .38 for like 80 dollars, totaly illegal.
it has to come with a cultural shift tho. people must learn to live with the fact that in any situation an armed civilian can go crazy and do some crazy shit. people would figth less for certain.
As someone who lives in a country that has insane levels of insecurity where muggers and robbers kill you out of spite and resentment even if you give them what they want, I simply cannot say No to guns. Every time I listen to the news that someone shot down a robber who had broken into his house, I can't help but be happy about it.
it depends . i'd like to own a pistol at least for the shooting range but in the same time its not ok for everyone to have one . yea maybe you pass all your tests and so to own one but mental health can kick in in a random moment and you end up in a school
So many privileged people in a bubble inside this thread
yes, i would love to have a rifle at home.
overall, I like it how it is in many countries that have strict gun regulation and as such, when someone kills like 3 people with a gun its headline news for a week straight.
thats a GOOD THING.
So to me, the ends have shown that they justify the means aka banning all guns. In a situation like the US, I would say, harder regulation and background checks, and full 100% ban on assault rifles, smgs, and the like. Nobody can tell me that a glock wont be enough to most often defend your home from assailants. And the LARPers wanna-be-soldiers wanna-be-rambos wanna-be-clint-eastwoods "rising up" against the government? BWAHAHAHA, yeah try winning against a military that you yourself made like a quadrillion dollars strong.
gun laws are shit. Weapons are a big part of turkish culture. But european standarts brought anti gun laws. I cant even own a small pew pew glock :(
Solely depends on the person. A tool that can instantly kill people shouldn't be handed out to just anybody.
Utilised correctly for safety and protection? Yes.
On mass to the general public? No.
Nobody should die for the stupidity of other people, in my opinion.
Guns dont kill people. Bullets dont kill people. Your aim kills them. Just be happy people dont have insane aim like CSGO players. lol Jokes aside. Ultimately its peoples own karma that kills them. If anybody gets killed you should understand they deserved it because they probably killed somebody else in their previous life.
I was before but then there was a story. My friend's father was a Federal Policeman, so he was always armed. One day he got robbed and died, and then i realized he had no option. You either fire back or wait for them to see that you have a gun and get killed anyways. He couldnt leave the situation free and just lose his bike. No1 knows what really happened in the day (there was no footage in that street)
gun gives people power, no, the murders in my country would be uncontrolled
america really do think they live in the old wild west , its hilarious. keep the guns, don't need them.
No. Just because something's easy to manufacture it shouldn't automatically be available for everyone. Maybe in a country with a HDI of 0.9 i could take it.
as much as i like to see people die for stupid reasons, i dont want citizens to have a choice
In our country we have an absolutely shit police and legal system. So therefore in some places and for certain individuals who are in imminent danger in India i think we should have guns. Like I have relatives who needed it coz some disputes and got shot in legs and arms. So i def think any country which is young and in infancy needs pro gun laws.
Replace life sentence with the death penalty ez fix.
No, I only use knife, zeus and nades
I don't buy into the whole second amendment school of thought. Guns and militias are typically not going to do anything against a modernized government, so in that sense, they don't hold a lot of value in my mind. Maybe that story is different in less modern or centralized countries, but you're never gonna have a successful uprising in China, guns or not.
That being said, guns are extremely important for individual self defense. Guns are the great equalizer in this sense, they allow people who are otherwise very vulnerable to defend themselves with deadly force, regardless of mechanical skill or strength.
Regulation is important, of course. But it's very possible to have a safe country with lots of guns.
yes but with background checks
Guns in any mean are prohibited in Azerbaijan.Even hunting rifles is illegal.If police finds out,they take it from you.Tho some people have such rifles or double barreled shotguns.
People shuld be able to carry guns!
no, check out korea. we kill ourselves more XD
most guns per person in EU here.
i am pro gun, only in CS
No, mentally unstable people would cause so much problems
"Guns don't kill people, I do!" -Postal Dude
what's the point of having a police if you need a gun to protect yourself?
Why would i not be pro- gun . why should i refuse to have that right. Criminals dont follow rules to begin with, so they can get guns illegaly, Yes very much pro gun, i pay my taxes i want to defend myself, not call the police to arrive 20 min later
Guns in society are for people who have a micropenis and need to feel big about themselves most of the time.
if humans were better then guns could be nice way to hunt
but then we point them at each other :c
classic case of guns dont kill people, people kill people
Guns in civil life should be for hunting and sport only. If you feel you need a gun to protect yourself you need to ask the hard questions what the hell is wrong with the society you life in. Bringing in more and more guns is not a solution but just a downwards spiralling trend.
guns don’t kill people, americans do
As long as the gun law are stricts enough and the gun certificates are delivered after a psych test i'm down.
But not in the US tho, as you can see the murder to gun/ppl rate is 100x bigger in US then in Switzerland
Anti-gun logic: people can't be trusted to have a gun, but they are able to choose the next president
Being anti-gun is just a way to say "I don't trust my neighbor, but I trust on the politicians"
It's really not that unreasonable tbh. I mean, even if guns are legal or not, every single violent criminal will get his hands on one, one way or another. If the criminals are armed, which they are in any case, shouldn't the law abiding citizens be too? If not, this gives the criminals complete monopoly on violence.
On the other handi can understand why one would not want guns for every single citizen, because among law abiding citizens there will always hide a fair amount of unstable and unpredictable people, this can be fixed by having rules in place that limits the right of gun ownership to tested and trained people. Like a drivers license.
Not all countries have a responsive police force. If people with guns came here, i could do nothing except call the police and wait for them to arrive within 30 minutes. If i use "too much" self defence i go to jail no matter what they were planning to do. Guns are epecially needed here imo.
I believe that only white people should have access to guns.
Yes im very much pro guns, but also pro gun control and mental health checkups on suspicious individuals who own them :()
I’m not pro gun, neither am I anti gun. But I like recreative shooting, I’m not really in the idea of self defense
if man has gun another man also need having guns. if no mens have guns no guns is needing.
everybody should have an mini nuke and 2 tigers and 3 lions
Well I'm a leftist so obviesly I'm pro gun
