    People can kill but gun loving murderers can kill more, faster, easier. If guns saved lives, why do we only hear about tens of thousands of murders and crimes committed by guns?

    We should have the right to own guns and rifles to protect home , family and our property. Criminals will always find wats to obtain guns , because they do not go through legal channels to obtain them. We don't need any military type weapons to be owned by citizens. If someone comes on my property to cause harm to me or my family , you can bet they will be meeting a gun in their face. First call 911 , but if no one comes then you are on your own so you better have a plan.

    It’s easier to move to another country than fight for gun reform in the US which will never happen. It’s a land of confusion over there. There are just wayyyy too many ignorant people there. It’s like trying to get women’s rights in some backward Middle Eastern country. As guns are like a religion to you US dumbbells

    Americans do not require these weapons in our society. Many civilized countries do not have this level of gun violence. They have common sense laws to protect the public against gun violence. It’s to protect the masses from non-sensible gun ownership.

    If his daughter was killed by hit and run would he be after my car? To end car violence?
