So yeah, I did this thread a couple of minutes ago but my mum was like "I need to check my bank and then rob you for some money" so I left it for a while, then I had to sign in again when I submitted, then it was gone. So Emma is angry indeed and cannot be bothered writing a lot, so I'll just feast off some of your replies. What's your opinion of guns? Whether they be for hun'n, self protection or whatever other use you can think of for a seemingly useless and dangerous object. So here's what I think, I'm completely against the use of guns unless you can be licensed, not like America where basically anyone can get hold of a gun, but the procedure the UK goes through. Which is like: Difficult, eh, well I should only see them used for reasons such as farming and whatnot, I don't really see the point in using them for fun, especially if you're going to pop a poor little bunny's head in with one. It's not like there's a shortage of fresh meat in your supermarket or anything, buy some and save yourself the hassle. I don't know how people can bring themselves to shooting something either, even if it's an animal, I'd still think of it as shooting my dog, and I'm not too keen on Ellie either, but I still couldn't kill anything. Then there's self defense, which I'm also against the use of. :thumbsup: If you're defending yourself in any situation I would rather run, grab something sharp or use my vocal chords like God intended me to do and squeal the hell like a woman. I think it's more likely that the other guy will be stronger than you, and have more experience using guns, and you guys who think it's good for using as protection, you're men, they hardly ever get jumped as much as women, and I'm weak and feeble. Anthony and I were talking about this as well, he asked me if I was being raped and some guy pinned me to the ground and a gun happened to be within reach, would I or would I not hesitate to shoot him? No, I wouldn't shoot the guy, one thing, my hands wouldn't be free, another being that he's obviously going to get there quicker aaannnd again, I couldn't kill someone living with guilt. They're probably disturbed or something, but it's no reason to shoot the guy. D: You can't use firearms as self defense here, it's not a good enough reason, and we've coped perfectly fine without them for the use of self protection for a good 60 odd years. Anyway, "it's not the guns that kill people, it's the people" yeah, so. Then governments shouldn't give these things out to the people so easily, restricting them is much more effective: Ne? Pretty sure guns do kill people. Okay, I'm expecting blueovalboy to get here, I'm looking forward to it. We need more debates threads, damnit.
