Comment Robberies versus assaults? (Score 0) 454

Guns might deter burglars, but when any irresponsible idiot can get a gun you've got a worse situation. Eg, here are two relevent headlines right from the top of today's front page on CNN, regarding idiots with guns intentionally shooting and killing people.

Man shoots four and kills two after breaking up with his girlfriend
Man shoots girl for walking a few steps onto his property

FWIW, I'm not entirely anti-gun, I think there are situations and occupations they're certainly warranted. But I don't buy the whole "2nd amendment is my God-given right, guns solve everything and make the world a perfect place" argument either.
