Whether or not guns are banned, there are always going to be ways to buy them. So many crimes are commited with stolen and/or black market guns. If you legally buy a gun and have it registered in your name, any kind of shooting would be traced back to you.

I'm not worried about the people who legally own guns- I'm worried about the people who have ILLEGALLY obtained them.

I firmly believe in the adage, "If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns." Murder is already illegal, and yet people commit it all the time. What makes anyone think a ban on owning guns or stricter gun control laws is going to stop events like the one that happened in CO? All that's going to do is make it impossible for the law abiding citizen to defend themselves, when the law abiding citizens are the only ones who will be...well, abiding by the laws.

Am Canadian, have (legal owned/stored) guns here, and I support right to own pistols and longguns. Carrying them outside the house is good if it works where you are but isn't something I'd push for where I live.


I do believe storage laws should be loosened so guns can realistically be used for home/property defense (if there is a caveat for farmers to not lock up rifles for farming
control I'm not aware of it, though I doubt that would make a difference to a farmer).

On a similar note I also support castle doctrine 100%.

Yep.

And yes, we have lots of guns. My family all hunts and/or shoots competitively. I have three guns myself but rarely use them.

I completely agree with this.

When the VTech shooting happened, I was still in college, and I could tell you that I would much rather be sitting next to someone in class with a concealed to carry if such an event ever occurred. I would actually feel safer on a campus where concealed to carry was allowed than not allowed. Because it is obvious that people who are going there to shoot others don't care whether it is allowed or not, obviously or all these shootings wouldn't happen. But not allowing us to protect ourselves and other around us....to me THAT is the crime.

Not too mention it might encourage people to go with more mass destructive weapons such as bombs.

Couldn't knowing the people in the room were likely carrying guns encourage the assailant to use bombs too, then?

I think we (Canada) are living proof gun control does not work... Toronto's a hotbed of gun murder and crime these days, 178 shooting so far this year……

And we've had serious restrictions on handguns for a long time, and they attempted long gun registry which is been in place for a while until it was thrown out....

Hasn't stopped much as far as crime goes criminals will find guns somewhere somehow....

I hate gun control it punishes the honest... While the criminals and insane people continue to shoot up Toronto ( and other places as well) like its a video game...
