    Just being devils advocate since the gun debate is hot; But why dont they allow guns in prisons? Prisons are gun-free zones, and among the most dangerous places in the country. So, if we gave every prisoner a gun, would they not be safer from each other? Would violence not go down?

    And I can see not giving everyone a gun, based on mental status and crime type they are in for.

    So, why wont the prisons give guns to all non-violent offenders and those who have committed petty crimes and have short sentences? They'd be safer, and the prisons would be much safer. Right?

    Are you serious? Would the guards be safe, why put them in prison if you want to give them something they can use to break out or murder a guard with?

    So you want to give bad guys (who are in prison for doing bad guy things) guns yet ban good guys from obtaining same so they can defend themselves from the bad guys?

    :neutral:

    This thread is retarded.

    Oh snap! You guys are so right! I forgot!!

    Ok. We'll give the guards guns too. Yep. More guns the better.

    So, guns for all the guards, and guns for all the non-violent and short-term prisoners to protect themselves from the bad ones.

    That'll reduce the violence in prison, right?

    You're an idiot, and anyone who thinks your OP is in anyway to be taken seriously should go find another board...

    Actually, prisons would eventually become very safe places if all the inmates were armed, but no one on the right actually says we should arm criminals.
