Pages

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Living in Canada, I often get the feeling I did looking over the fence to my neighbours house as a kid, and yelling "But dad/prime minister! they get to have a dog/handgun".

I mean, my entire arguement towards pro-guns can be summed up with the old and overused statement:
[I]GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE. PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE[/I]
I agree with that completly. I understand that it is much easier to kill when you have a gun. For instance, that guy that shot up his work with a shot gun killing seven people probably wouldn't have been able to without a gun. He may have only killed two or three. But to counter that arguement I can simply mention the death toll with cars/cigarettes/alcohol.

I feel almost raped of freedom knowing that I can't have a handgun. Or that I have to go through so much to get one. I don't even really want one to be truthful. I would probably buy one and keep it around the house, but I would never use it. My cousin was recently attacked and almost raped, though, and I would feel much better if she had a small handgun.

What's your opinion on this?
