    Default Guns: Should ordinary citizens have them?

    Should any citizen have access to firearms? And if so, why? To what end?

    Of course. Not only to protect them against criminals but more so against their own government. An armed citizen is a free citizen- an unarmed man a serf.
    Of course people that have been convicted of felony's should not be allowed to have guns but the rest of the population should have be able to buy, sell, store and possess firearms.

    I believe standard citizens should have firearms. I am also for certain felons being banned from firearm ownership (murderers, rapists, grand thief's, etc...). Firearms in citizen hands are necessary for self defense and for protection against the federal government in the case that the federal government decides to unleash the national military on the people.

    I can't speak about the rest of the world.

    In Greece, if ordinary citizens had them (Gods forbid), and given their temperament, impulsivity and Balkan "macho" attitude, then they'd manage to wipe each other out in less than two weeks, over road rage disputes.

    I think it's irresponsible of a government to allow every nutjob and his cousin the right to have assault rifles and stuff like that. What are they going to use it for anyway? Columbine massacre anyone?

    And then only the criminals who do not care about laws will have guns. The cities with the highest crime rates in the US, like NY, Baltimore, Chicago, ordinary law abiding citizens are not allowed to carry weapons to protect themselves. Hence the highest crime rate.

    Maybe you should start a poll like this: Should only criminals have guns?
    ROPE and CHAINS
