    We have more then enough laws on the books for gun control. We just need to enforce the laws we have. As long as society has a means to produce medals guns will always exist. So because of that guns have done far more good freeing America from tyranny and America freeing the world from communism. As long as a society is armed government is much more likely to stay in its place and not completely trample peoples rights. Any nation that takes away the peoples rights to be armed is suspect for future tyranny and not to be trusted with the peoples future.

    Army guy here saying these folks are pretty absurd, the sale of guns and the correlations with events just means there are more crazies out there. That doesn't mean that they're all going to go out and commit horrible crimes, they're scared that horrible things are about to happen to them.

    Going postal was a term coined by an event where a postman literally just started up killing people one day and it took a long time until he was actually caught. The term stuck for people going crazy and just killing others off for the hell of it or as targets, but I guarantee all the people who bought guns or protection around that time didn't intend to follow in his footsteps.

    Canada may have a lower crime rate, but there are a lot of crime near there border. There is no means for them to protect themselves against people who already own guns. If the country started off without any guns than we would only need to worry about the surrounding borders, but since everyone has guns and taking away that right now would cause uprising it is very illogical and would cause more death to take them away rather than leave them.

    Most of the time, I carry a rifle whenever I go off the road because I do hunting.

    So many great comments about this matter in this thread.
    Let me put my 2 cents.
    Maybe there are more crimes in US than the rest of the countries but is not because the guns, its because the stressful system we live in + all medicine people in general take. Many take Tylenol because their hair hurts. Medicine and bad nutrition make the body and mind sick. Instead eliminating weapons, I would eliminate all pharmaceutical companies that kill and get sicker more people than anything else.
