2. As an Atheist, my views on firearms are as follows:

they are weapons of war. Designed with the expressed intent to kill and maim. They are meant to destroy lives. These tools serve no other purpose. A failure of society can be, in part, determined by the number of firearms circulating.

You can't unring a bell. Firearms arms are here, they aren't going anywhere. If you made guns illegal the only people that would have firearms would be people willing to break the law, thus only law-abiding citizens would be defenseless (Try taking a knife to a gunfight if you don't believe me.) Furthermore, firearms have a purpose other than to destroy lives. I have shot thousands of rounds of ammunition and I have never taken anyone's life. I enjoy it as a sport, its challenging, and requires discipline. A good portion of the people where I live use guns to get food (turkeys, pheasants, deer, turtles, snakes, squirrel, hogs, etc), they are also used to keep the food they grow form pests (racoons, deer, muskrats, opossums, etc), and to kill animals that are dangerous (bobcats, bear, snakes, and rarely mountain lions). The most common reason why people have firearms is to protect themselves from thieves and thugs though.
