Americans favourite current argument: "If they person who got shot had a gun, they could defend themselves" as an English person I dont think that arming everybody everywhere will have a positive effect.

That's the NRA's current argument. According to a recent poll, the majority of Americans don't want guns/want much stricter gun control. Unfortunately, the NRA is very large with a large amount of money, so they get to be as loud as they want.

Personally, as an American, my concern isn't about the guns.

My concern is that we are supposed to represent a nation of people who are free to do what they wish, so long as it doesn't put others in harm's way.

Taking away things from people who will follow these laws won't help.

Neither will allowing anyone to purchase such things.

Countries should regulate who can have things, not what they can have. Some people simply shouldn't have a gun. Others can and do use them responsibly.

It shouldn't be hard to get a firearm.

It should be impossible for those who shouldn't have them, and of lesser difficulty for those who should.

True. I'm not really aware of foreign police (apart from stereotypes), though I know a fair bit about British policing

yeah it will never work

give everyone guns, and we shoot each other

take away our guns, and we shoot each other until we can legally have our guns to shoot each other with

What about giving them the option to defend themselves?
