All About Guns

Guns Cover 1 Not Optimal

In America, there are approximately 270 million firearms possessed by civilians, and only 897,000 carried by police.

This is a shocking statistic, but not a surprising one. It seems like everyone and their grandmother is toting a gun now. Why? Has the world gotten more dangerous? According to statistics, around 33,000 Americans in 2011 fell victim to gun-related deaths – or are we just arming ourselves more than we did 20 years ago?

Set of old pistolsI know people feel they have the right to have a firearm, but when the law states you don’t have to have a background check to purchase one from a private seller, what are we setting ourselves up for? These people may not be some ordinary Joe that just wants to use it for target practice or hunting. They could be anyone from a criminal, to a felon to someone with a mental issue. Do we really want to put guns in the hands of people who have already proven to have a history of criminal or unstable behavior?

Guns Of Honour. A Pair Of Dueling Pistols And CapsulesWith the numbers around 268 people shot everyday in the US alone, we can’t deny that guns are all too available and all too at the ready for people to use. The recent events of kids being shot in the classrooms only adds to this argument.


Criminals liked revolvers because they can be fired from a pocket.So where is the middle line? Where can people still have their rights, but keep the criminals unarmed? The answer is simple. As long as guns are being sold to the public, they will always be available to those who want to cause harm with them. Even if the laws were to tighten up on private sales, there will always be people who don’t listen and others who will steal what they want.

A hunter inside the jungleFor those of us who try to live a peaceful life without the protection of a weapon at-the-ready, this can be a scary and dangerous time to live in. I don’t want to have to purchase some pretty little pearl handled pistol to feel safe on a subway or walking alone at night. But, unfortunately, we are being pushed as a society to do so. And what about those who do fall under the fear-pressure and purchase a gun? When is a reasonable time to use it and when would it be considered excessive force? I don’t want someone to sneak up behind me and say “boo” then accidently shoot his head off. Not to mention the fact that carrying a gun can lead to it being stolen and used for more than just security purposes.

Two Crossed Flintlock PistolsThere’s no easy answer for the law of guns. They are here to stay and are growing in popularity. Think before you purchase a gun, especially if you have little ones in the house and be safe when using it.

As for the rest of us, all we can hope is that when the time comes for people to use them, we aren’t standing in the crossfire.

    There are different varieties of guns nowadays depending on its purpose and how it will be used. Guns are usually managed by police, soldiers, hunters or even criminals. Gun ownership must have a license. You will be sued and out to jail if you possess guns illegally. Adults should be careful on teaching children about this dangerous weapon for them not to be fond by it so much that they will use such thing with no purpose. This book tells all about how guns are used in different ways and how it evolved through out the years and that is a good start for kids to learn.

    Guns are not just things to kill people with. They are tools/toys. Just like a car, snowmobile, whatever. All those things can kill you too if you are an idiot and don’t follow the right steps.

    In my opinion, to own a gun, it is highly recommended for a complete monitoring because some civilians just use these weapons for crimes. Guns should be used properly in ways where it is really needed such as dealing with criminals, war or battle with enemies, and for hunting wild animals. Kids should learn about guns for them to be aware that it is device that must be used carefully and not just used for personal motives.
