Apples are clearly dangerous..... They can fall out of a tree and hit you on the head. :laugh:

Sorry.... Much to sleepy to be making anything but sarcastic posts.... For real now, going to bed.

You could choke on an apple.

But I would say guns are more dangerous because in the wrong person's hands it's much easier to harm someone with a gun than an apple.

Very true. It is important for everyone to remember that the primary purpose of a firearm is to kill. That is why they were created, after all.

Why would he need one? If the purpose of guns isn't killing, what is it?

Exactly. Though we currently use firearms just for sport, they were designed to kill - and that was their sole purpose - when they were designed. We can't escape that, and we shouldn't. Just because we acknowledge "Hey, guns are designed to kill people" doesn't mean they become that much more dangerous, or that they should be banned. It simply is an acknowledgement of their prime function. The same rules still apply regardless of whether we are up front about the prime purpose of a gun or not.

I still don't understand, i grew up in a town of 45,000 people, i now live in a town with 500. I have never thought to myself i wish i had gun to protect myself. Even when i go to Toronto or other big cities i never feel like i should have a gun. And per capita the US has more crime then Canada so do the guns really help that much?

Well, a lot depends on area and outlook on life, and general view of humanity.

Cynics, like me, see a world with a lot of wolves, or predators. We're sickened by the crime and filth around us, and have low regard for our fellow man, unless they demonstrate their worth to us. We verify, then learn about the subject, then trust.

Basically, we see a lot of people with their head in the clouds, going through life without a care in the world, narrowly missing the hidden dangers they're oblivious to. We read about the murder victims, the rape victims, the robbery victims, and we vow to ourselves to fight the scum as best as we can, if ever we are presented with that occurrence.

It doesn't make us the most cheerful of people. But we see it as a survival mechanism.

So in short, when you see a world with demons, you feel inclined to carry a big stick.

When you see a world with fluffy animals, you carry cracked corn.

That is a simplification, and it isn't meant to offend, just an ultra basic analogy.

As for murder rates, that is dependent on culture, demographics, urbanization, gang activity et cetera. But as gun crime as we have, in my opinion, we'd have a much higher crime rate than we already do if law abiding citizens didn't carry weapons. Plus, violent crime has been falling in the United States for a while now.

well that was an interesting read. If I was the student I would be very perturbed at the professor. CCW is one of my favorite subjects to right on for classes(second is the death penalty). I have written probably about 5 essays about the subject.

On a side note: in my Senior year I was able to sway my English teacher on the issue. it only took me about 20 min of talking after an essay about it to change her thinking on the subject. It always makes me happy to know I changed at least one persons way of thinking.

I don't know if that's what he meant but I'll respond to this anyway.

How does a firearm protect? By killing (or severely injuring).

Yes, it takes a person to use a firearm to kill, but that makes it dangerous.

I'm not saying I disagree with carrying a gun on campus, but saying that firearms are not dangerous and their purpose is not to kill is ridiculous.

Yes, guns are killing tools -- I think we got it covered. ;)

It's important to remember when discussing this that guns are not the motivation or the purpose for killing people, they are simply tools. If somebody who wanted to kill didn't have a gun he/she doesn't need one, there are plenty of lethal weapons other than firearms. As far as the crime rate in the US vs. Canada, it can't be blamed on guns -- they're as legal in Canada as they are in the US.

As far as personal experience, has any one of us had to use deadly force to protect ourselves or others against a crime? I can't speak for everybody, but I doubt it and I can tell you I never have, that doesn't mean it's not going to happen, and I'd rather be able to defend myself proactively than risk not being able to and "learning the lesson" the hard way. It's not like every day you carry a gun you're thinking "who should I kill?"

I hope you're thinking of a paintball gun, because last time I checked, bullets weren't too good at lullabies.
Paintball isn't my hobby, it's my lifestyle. Go hard or go home.
