    Default Gun Control in the UK

    Should it be relaxed or is it working just right?

    Gun control should be relaxed.

    Gun or not, the people who would have enough drive to commit the act with the gun will have enough drive to obtain a gun to harm others, by whatever means necessary. They do not have the morals, or at least morals which will prevent them from hurting other people.

    Gun control does not insure safety, because this is an issue of right and wrong.

    That's ridiculous. What kind of message does relaxing the gun law send out? Why does any joe need a gun anyway? Tsk tsk.

    That is not the criterion for the justness of legislation.

    to defend themself from the other joe will get a gun by any means necessary and will use it to do harm
    it's an issue of right and wrong
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Why does someone need a gun? The answer is simple. For the very reasons they are preventing the guns, as well as for more normal reasons. Some people are fascinated by guns. Some people like to look at the mechanics, understand their power, hold a piece of history.

    On the other hand, there are people who want to harm others. And those are the people, like I said, who will obtain the guns.

    It plays a big part. Besides, any party who openly admitted that as policy wouldn't get voted in. No one is in need of a gun in the uk. Relaxing the law is absurd it would never happen.

    Why not have guns? There are plenty more weapons. Are those controlled too?

    Again, doesn't speak to the justness of the policy.


    No one is in need of a gun in the uk.
    Many disagree.


    Relaxing the law is absurd it would never happen.
    Provide evidence as to the absurdity.
