    In the USA, where I happen to live, there are M-I-L-L-I-O-N-S more guns , than there are people. My personal theory is it should be mandatory for everyone to carry a lethal weapon at all times !!

    Less theory, more deranged mutterings.

    In your country, I agree. In mine, thank God no.

    Shouldn't this be in Debates?

    I think it should be rocket launchers. If an "armed society is a polite society", then this one would be the most mannerly yet.

    London casualties would be many times higher if the terrorists had easy
    access to automatic firearms. A van and knives were bad enough.

    Tactical nukes, please. Why stop at half-measures?

    Not exactly true.

    "A minority of Americans own guns, but just how many is unclear. More than a third of Americans say they or someone in their household owns a gun. There are by various estimates anywhere from 270 million to 310 million guns in the United States — close to one firearm for every man, woman and child". Jun 4, 2013 (googled)

    I've heard that there are a trillion rounds of ammunition though.

    Yup, that's the crux. I don't care how many guns people have, so long as the ammo is controlled.

    Just for the record; constitution or no, I'm armed. In the real world. Only a fool isn't prepared to defend his own against tyranny and the criminal element.

    Right?!
