I didn't say that, did I?

No. Does it matter? It's nearly impossible to acquire a gun in my country and it's demonstrably better that way.

I never said that you don't have the right to use a firearm. You seem to be either misunderstanding or deliberately straw-manning my actual position. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that it is the former one. Anyway, I'm not for banning guns in the US, I'm for stricter gun control so that the number of irresponsible people who own guns is reduced. If you can handle a gun and are a mentally stable person, I don't mind you owning a gun. You would have to be absolutely delusional to deny that it is currently far too easy to acquire a gun in the United States.
Hear hear! I can't even understand the childish mentality of people who don't want strict gun control. It's as though they're 8 and we're trying to take away their bb gun. Gun should be controlled because it makes killing large numbers of people so much easier, faster and efficient. If you're happy with hunting rifles and handguns, no prob, but if you have rocket launcher like that bloke in LA, then I question your reasoning for owning them.

Do you own a gun to defend yourself or because it gives you power and authority or because it looks cool and therefore makes you look cool? If the former doesn't take precedence over the latter ones, you're a gun aficionado and gun control shouldn't even be a problem because you can still go to a shooting range and fire assault rifles/guns/whatever over there for a price. I simply don't understand the need for a gun in your house much less assault riffles. How many accidents and homicide that need to happen to other people before it happens to you or your family? THINK!
Reasons for having a gun at home:
  • Self defense.
  • Accessibility.
  • Security of ownership; if all guns are centrally located, they can be taken away more easily.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
