Guns Are For Insecure People

Why should americans act like they're all cops? I'm from a country called Sweden, and we don't have these problems at all. Bullying and rape can't be fixed that easily (but there are electrical weapons if you think you'll be raped). However, murder can be reduced a lot if you americans disallow guns for civilians.

You are not EDUCATED to use a gun like a cop and you DO NOT KNOW when you'll go into a psychos (when you act like the world is against you). Cops are continously trained, they are suited for this.

Get more cops on the streets if you want the BEST security.

If I lived in USA and saw someone with a gun wrapped around his waist I'd be scared for my life. How can americans live like this?

HOW can other countries like Sweden live fine without guns?

There's nothing wrong with a person owning gun to protect them self, the problem lies in people killing each other. But there's always going to be murder and people are going to get hurt, there isn't much we can do but not be the one to go off and kill people for the hell of it.

"If I lived in USA and saw someone with a gun wrapped around his waist I'd be scared for my life."

your more likely to be raped back in sweden than shot by a gun owner in the US of A. Your fears are not justified, and based on rhetoric, stereotypes, more rhetoric.

Then we get into the 'psychos' comment, which againt, more like "terrorists", "communists", and other fear words, probably means your the one who is insecure.

You know, before terrorism even, calling someone a "psycho" was how you could lock them up legally without trials, lawyers, appeals, or even a good reason, except the single opinion of a man who wasn't smart enough to study neroscience in college.

At least I'm not arguing for banning a now legal thing because I'm scared of it, then have the nerve to call others "insecure", then threatening to put them in a classification of people to be locked up without due proccess.

Nope. A coward is a person that uses a gun to shoot innocent people around.

A person that is peacefully sleeping at home and confronts a robber who breaks into his/her house and uses a gun to protect himself is not a coward, he just does not know if the robber is armed or not.

I like guns, a lot, but I know better not going around gun totting like in the Wild West.

I Spain, were I used to live, you get in more shit for protecting yourself than the robber would get into if he would kill you in the robbing, our wonderful justice system

You know, we might get farther asking why these people feel insecure. I mean, if they have police, why do they feel the need to have a firearm to defend themselves instead of relying on the police?

Remember, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. If there is someone in your house, it's the middle of the night, and you don't know them, why they are there, if they are armed, would you rather have a phone in your hand or a weapon?

I fully understand this. I was just wondering if the OP would have an answer, or if the others that wish to start banning guns realized this.

Oh, that's easy. One, no reasonable person trusts the police. Two, the police aren't obligated to actually help you. Three, even if they do want to help you, they're not necessarily available in the timeframe you need them. Four, you may not actually be able to contact them when you need their help. Five, I don't believe the use of guns automatically becomes more moral or acceptable when outsourced to somebody else. Six, I think police are -too likely- to use their guns in a conflict. Seven, it is my responsibility, not somebody else's, to ensure my own safety. Eight, no reasonable person ever, ever, EVER trusts the police.

That's always amused me about the gun control crowd. They claim we're buying guns because we're so afraid, yet all we ask is to be left alone, while they launch into fear-mongering every time there's a shooting.

Take a look at what steps were taken in response to a SEVEN-YEAR-OLD with a TOY GUN:
