Depends on what kind of gun control you are talking about...

Here in Canada, we have two classes of gun licence (and you HAVE to have a licence...) Restricted and Un-Restricted.

With an Un-Restricted licence, you are only alowed to buy hunting rifles and shotguns, I think. With a Restricted you are alowed to have handguns and such. It's harder to get your restricted licence than an un-restricted licence.

Personally, I believe that some gun-control is necessary at this time. Some people are too stupid to own firearms, and some people are too dangerous to own firearms.

If someone has a history of mental illness (specific types of illness, of course, and recent, not 20 years ago), or if they are a convicted (imo, should be edited to convicted VIOLENT felon) felon, they can not possess firearms.

Yes, and you also have to have two (or more?) people sign your gun-licence application to state that you will not harm yourself or another with any gun you possess. :smirk:

But in the end, isn't it all rhetoric? How is requiring a license going to stop anything? If I am going to shoot someone, I have pretty much decided that following societies rules isn't a high priority in my life. It isn't hard to get guns, and it isn't going to get harder. On the contrary, it will continue to get easier and easier to acquire better and better weapons. This is the real world.

When the pigs that "serve and protect" my city lay down their guns, so will I...until then, I will keep my guns...

My toasters on the other hand...I will give those up in the interest of a safer society.

Actually, it is hard to get guns here in Canada...and just about all the guns on "the street" come up here from the USA anyway :frown:

It's hard to get guns legally in Canada. It's a piece of cake to get them on the black market. Slightly more difficult to find a seller than in the US, and slightly more expensive, but not really to the point where it inconveniences you that much.

It isn't hard to get guns

Depends where you are. In the UK it's incredibly hard to get guns. Buying off the black market you'll often find reactivated replica guns that are more than likely to blow your hand off the first time you fire them.

Seeing as I've read about guns flowing into the UK with nary a mention of them blowing up in peoples hands, I know who I'd guess is telling the truth.

And yet gun-related crime makes up only 0.003% of the crimes faced by the Metropolitan police. Much of which is related to drug-dealing gangs.

I've read otherwise. Even if you're correct how does that show that guns aren't flowing in and that those that are blow up in peoples hands?

First, let's put this into perspective: a Metropolitan police spokesman has said that gun-related crime only accounts for 0.003% of all crimes they deal with. Yes, it would appear that gun crime is increasing, but from a very small base. It is not a time to panic. Also we should remember that most gun crime relates to the illegal drugs trade, which is mainly controlled by foreign gangs, for whom guns are a regular part of the business. Drug dealers have been shooting each other for some time, without the media and Home Office attention suddenly being lavished upon them.

Clearly if guns were "flowing" into the UK black market they would be being used more often.

That's right Alpo, failure to use something is of course proof it doesn't exist.

On a side note..... why is it you only believe government statistics when they seem to back up your preconceived notions.

Alpo: The government lies! (except when they say what I want them to say. Then they are completely honest)

If you read the quote you would see it wasn't government figures, it was Metropolitan police figures.

I love to watch you two bicker, but the simple fact is that there has been no relation shown in any country between the number of guns per capita and the amount of gun related crime. So what does it matter if everyone has a gun? Besides...guns don't kill people...Bullets kill people...

So a bullet leaps up by itself and kills someone? Surely it must require the help of a person?
