People who are against gun control are NOT violent.

One of the accusations leveled against people who like guns and want nothing to do with gun control, is that they are violent.  If you do not want any restrictions placed on gun ownership you must be a violent person.  The fact is, however, that the exact opposite is true.  People who want to own guns freely, are not violent people.  If gun owners were violent, there wouldn't be any gun control advocates.

True.

If people who love guns were violent, they would have shot the people who are trying to take away their guns by now. ;)

I'm not saying that people who love guns are violent but I don't really understand why do people need guns. Pardon me if I'm wrong (I'm from Europe) but I've read some article saying that arond 40% of people in USA posses some kind of firearm. It is okay if somebody is having job that requiers it but I doubt that there are so many people of this kind. As far as I know America is well developed country and people don't need to cary guns on streets in order to protect themselves.

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

There are many Americans who are distrustful of the government. ;)

Our right to keep and bear arms is not based upon a need.

It is based upon the knowledge of the fact - that "it is better for the people to have guns the ability to defend themselves and their rights and not need them - than it is for them to need gun to defend those things and not have them."

Side: True.

True, I am against fun control, and I own guns, and I never killed anyone.

Side: True.

EDIT: GUN ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Side: True.

It's a generalization to believe that they are.

People who are against gun control, just want the option to keep their guns.

Side: True.

Gun control people just want the option to know with certainty that they will never be shot.

That does not mean that they are violent. You're proving my point.

It's true, too bad sometimes the anti gun people assume this means putting a gun into every person's hand. I am glad you understand their goal.

Side: True.

So now you're less hostile because I take your side. Bigotry at it's finest.

My point has nothing to do with gun control, it has to do with anti gun control people not being inherently violent, even though some are.

Side: True.

You don't have to be violent to stop something that is trying to stop something that is violent.

Side: True.

I'd rather be able to defend myself than to not have a gun and get he shit kicked out of me. Our guns are for protection, not for us to go around shooting and killing people .

Side: True.
