Hey ya'll, here's my rant. First off, I know that our right to bear arms was garunteed in the Bill of rights. That, and also that "we need to be able to defend ourselves" i feel is the main argument for guns. but think about it: who do we need to defend ourselves against? people with guns. almost any other situation and it would be against the law (something like you're legally allowed to hurt someone enough so that they can't harm you anymore). So if you need guns BECAUSE other people have guns... thats like putting sugar on sugar. if you admit that the reason we need guns is to defend ourselves against guns (why else would you need one?) then you're admitting that you think the solution to the already existing gun problem is to put more guns into it! there's a great quote by some famous guy saying "if a small business fails, it dies, but if a government run orginization fails, then they put more money into it", which is basically whats happening here. and back to the bill of rights: when it was passed, people DID need guns to defend themselves. there were no police, and the replacement for that was militias, volunteers from the towns. if they didn't have guns they'd be pretty pathetic militias. Back then, guns were to some extent necessary; now, guns are the problem, and need to be stopped. thoughts?
