It's our right to bear arms. You could kill a person with a knife just as easily.

You could kill a person with sex, too. And rope.

Shouldn't they be banned?

Thumb this down if you want, it isn't going to change the truth.

Yes, but all of those are used for other things than just shooting live creature or range practice.

I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands.

Should my hands be banned?

Debatable on the knife one. It's a lot easier to kill someone with a well-placed bullet from far away than it is to get up close to a person who's scared for their life and stab them to death.

Did you hear about the knifing in China where someone stabbed I believe it was about 30 people. It doesn't matter what weapon an individual has, they will still find ways to kill. People were using swords before firearms were invented, why didn't we ban those? People kill people, weapons are just utensils.

And none of them died.

Compare to the Sandy Hook shooting on the same day, where 28 people died.

But the fact that mass murders nowadays are almost all committed by guns would point to the contrary. For every mass stabbing, there's far more mass shootings. I take this to mean that guns have more lethality than knives.

You know how to stop a bad guy with a gun? Bring a good guy with a gun. You can't expect a criminal to just stop what they are doing if they have a gun in a Gun-Free Zone. A sign is clearly going to save innocent lives. Besides, even if you do outlaw/ban or try to reduce guns, criminals are going to find ways to get them illegally. Banning Heroine, Cocaine, Marijuana, and Alcohol worked really well right? You don't see those anymore ever since they became illegal. Banning guns only hurts the law-abiding and even the economy. If I owned a business, I would have a Pro-Gun policy, meaning that people could be armed in my business. 10/10 times, if someone walks into my store to rob it/commit a crime, myself and law-abiding, confident customers would gladly come to our defense and deter all forms of aggression. Sorry if I sounded rude or anything, not trying to be butthurt. The public just doesn't understand.

I never said to ban or even heavily regulate guns my good sir, I'm against such things. I'm just trying to make the point that guns have more lethality than knives. I also agree that a good bit of the public doesn't seem to understand what happens when guns are regulated in America.

My apologies then, kind sir. Many people are just completely oblivious and they hop on the bandwagon without looking at any facts.
