    What would have happened had the burglar not been able to carry a gun?

    BigReb -

    By introducing gun laws which make it difficult for potential criminals to buy, own and trade weapons.

    Compulsory psychological tests, licensing based on every weapon owned (as opposed to every owner) and mandatory firearm safety training courses would go a huge way towards ensuring homeowners do not need to defend themselves for armed criminals.

    People are only guilty when they commit a crime not before.

    I'm not going to allow my rights to be handed over to some fucking doctor that is a no sale and is not acceptable. All it would take is one anti second amendment shit head and deny's anyone a right to a firearm. NO FUCKING WAY.

    There are already laws against criminals possessing guns, you fool. By definition, criminal don't worry about laws.

    Well that's fine with me - but then you have to accept a homicide rate 5 times that of any other civilised nation.

    It really is that simple.

    No, it's not that simple at all.

    The problem isn't the availability of guns. The problem is the prohibition of drugs and crminalizing behavior that should be a personal choice. Think I'm wrong? Use that ol' internet and look up Al Capone and the gangs of the Prohibition era. We're doing the same things again with the same results.

    What's the solution? Legalization and a little bit of reasonable regulation, like requiring users to be 21 and show ID when purchasing. We imprison more people than any other nation, turn them into heroes of the 'Hood, and then wonder why they act like hoodlums when they get out of jail. We have drug testing that prevents them from having a job or encourages them to use other, more dangerous substances (meth, synthetic marijuana, "window cleaner", "bath salts", etc.) that aren't tested for instead of well known drugs like pot that have been studied for years ad infinitum.

    With cheap and readily available drugs, the pot smokers and occasional users of other drugs will be fine. The users of harder drugs who can't control themselves will take themselves out in a matter of months.

    Problem solved!

    Think it won't work? A lot of people thought that the world was going to end when Prohibition was repealed and you could go down to the corner store and but a bottle of bourbon. It didn't. And the gang violence and shootings over alcohol stopped.
