so im sure we all heard about las vegas and with this tragedy a lot of controversy has sparked about gun laws in america.

so personally i believe civilians should not be able to carry guns but growing up in England, i have never really been around guns.

anyway what are your guys opinions on the matter.
since most on this site are american im sure you will have some great opinions.

Absolutely I believe a person should be able to carry a gun to protect their self along with others. When it comes to people wanting to do someone harm with a gun, the best way to fight back is with one. If they were to restrict guns, it wouldn't keep people that truly wanted them from getting them. It would increase the black market for firearms. The weapons that were used in the shooting were automatic or a bump stock was used. Im not for bump stocks, I don't think they should be legal. However, when it comes to automatic weapons, they are very tightly regulated compared to other guns and very very expensive. They are not as easy to get as the news makes them sound. Also, the "anyone can buy a gun at the gun show" is a myth. You have to pass a background check and most of the shows have fed agents there to make sure they remain from doing illegal actions. Im from Texas and a lot of people carry for protection, hell we can even carry in my college as long as it's not in the labs.

I'm not sure if stricter gun laws will prevent tragedies like this from happening again. The gun that was used in the massacre was illegal anyway, but the user still possessed it. People should be allowed to carry a gun to protect themselves along with their families and friends. All of social media people are talking about gun laws, and those laws can only do so much. There are rule breakers and will always be.

There is almost a mass shooting each day in America if you look at the numbers. Now compare that to gun crime elsewhere, shall we? One in the UK. A SINGLE mass shooting in the UK, and that's in the past 2 decades. Want to guess the number for Australia? 2. 2 mass shootings in 2 decades.

Wow, weird that isn't it? Gun crime plummeted after gun laws became more strict and mass shootings pretty much ended. Its almost as if the less guns there are, and the harder they are to get, the less gun crime there is? Weird.

As for illegal guns, irrelevant. You can get illegal guns anywhere. The issue with gun control in the US, is that there is no control. Its way too easy to obtain a gun in the US, legally or illegally.

The amount of people I've seen get butthurt that people are trying to 'take their guns' and state that "guns don't kill people, people do" that then go on to say shit like "praying for Vegas" is ridiculous. So **** the whole thing then? Guns shouldn't be taken away to stop mass shooting, we'll all just pray to the sky daddy for help. Guess what, prayers don't help people, people do. God doesn't help people, people do.

Oh and no one is trying to take your guns. There's no big conspiracy that you're all going to lose your guns and then get bent over by your government. That's just moronic.

How ANYONE can be against strict gun laws to me is just nonsensical.

*edit*
Oh, and stop confusing people wanting some decent gun control as people thinking guns should all be destroyed. There's a huge difference between the two.
Also don't be offended if you own a gun, as long as you've gone through the proper background checks etc, I'm all good with you having a gun.

How do you expect to enforce that exactly?

Also, it seems you misundestand what gun control is. Strict gun control is not the same as banning guns outright. Guns aren't completely banned in the UK but I'm willing to bet we have some of the strictest gun laws(if not the strictest).

Guns are not shooting people, people are.

It's the people behind the gun, having gun laws here will do close to nothing.

Criminals don't follow rules, that's why they are "criminals".

Therefor a gun law isn't going to stop a criminal from obtaining a gun illegally to go shoot up a place

All a gun law would do here is take away our guns and let the criminals keep theirs.

Shoot someone with out a gun then.

Extorted wrotehaving gun laws here will do close to nothing.

So there should be NO gun laws is what you're saying? Also, where are you getting the information from that stricter gun laws would "do close to nothing", because every other country that has put stricter gun laws in to practice has seen a drastic decrease in gun crime and mass shootings come to an end almost.

Extorted wroteCriminals don't follow rules, that's why they are "criminals".

Okay? Moot point. It has nothing to do with anything I said, or the discussion at hand.

Extoreted wroteTherefor a gun law isn't going to stop a criminal from obtaining a gun illegally to go shoot up a place.

"a gun law". You're aware you already have laws on guns, right? People are just advocating for stricter gun laws, to make them harder to obtain, which would absolutely make it harder for a criminal to get one. Sort of like how criminals in countries with strict gun laws almost never use guns. Weird how that works, huh?
