You can't defend yourself effectively with a gun. A gun in the home is more likely to be used on another resident than a home invader.

I can see why you are worried about somebody you live with shooting you. 

You do rub people that way.

I'm not the one who is worried.

You live alone?

It might be best.

But no one here is advocating the banning of guns in the US (or anywhere else).  Restricting gun ownership is a phenomenally good idea - no one seriously claims that everyone should be allowed to have guns: the mentally unstable, convicted felons, domestic abusers - all of these are examples of people who shouldn't have firearms. More extensive and thorough background checks are sensible and would in no way take away the ability of most people to procure firearms.

As a non-American, I agree with you that people have become crazy.  This largely stems from the viewpoint that gun ownership is an inviolable right that can't possibly be restricted without your whole culture coming apart at the seams.  The idea that EVERYone should be allowed firearms is both crazy and immoral.

You're not worried because being killed would be a blessing for you.

And I don't need guns in the house to defend it. Your penis extender is obviously needed.

Sorry Boru...

If you want to get rid of " black rifles" - you are banning.

I think onlinebiker is afraid he wouldn't pass the tests if gun owners would be required to do so. He is afraid. Except for Brian, not boru no one here would be pro banning guns completely.
