I live in brazil...pretty obvious which side im on
there isnt a right or wrong awenser here, i think it depends on each society you are a part of, different cultures will have different awensers
the police here in brazil are terrible at protecting us and most are corrupt and many thieves easily get illegal guns, its the easiest thing to do here, aside from drugs, so if we were to ban guns here in brazil man we would be SCREWED
but actually not many brazilians have guns, i dont have one though i wish i did, just this year my house got robbed again and we were tied up and held at gun point...if i had a gun i MIGHT have been able to stop them
BUT we did live...they let us live so we were lucky, sometimes its best to not do anything and live then try dumb shit and die but not all thieves are nice like that, our other neighboors werent so lucky that same night...so should we risk it?
but if you live in a country where its rare to get robbed and most of the crimes in the city doesnt involve innocent ppl and is more about gang wars and stuff AND the police actually do their job well then i dont see a reason to have guns
though i dont think we have the right to ban them....could make it more difficult to aquire one though, but i think its everybodys right to own whatever they want as long as they are responsible enough to own it
but at least here in brazil the reality is, if guns were banned and every1 KNEW they could come into our house and we couldnt protect ourselves man...i dont even want to imagine that situation
though americans do love guns way too much, i think many ppl own them when they dont really have to...like they live in safe places and never really even needed it, they just wanted one...why?
americans are very paranoid, here in brazil its not something common to just walk around with guns or for every1 to have a gun in their house yet for americans it is...i find it odd but i understand them...
