This is how it works:
We are all born with certain inalienable rights. Among them is the right to life. Inherent in a right is the right to defend your rights. This includes the right to self-defense because, if you do not have a right to defend it, then you do not really have a right to your own life.
Any free and self-governing society is bound to protect and preserve these inalienable right. This includes the rights of people with who you disagree. If you have a right to live, so do they. If you have a right to speak, so do they. In fact, anything you claim a right o must be…

Before we go all out and take away rights from law abiding citizens, let’s break down the official numbers from the CDC and FBI statistics for 2013:
There are roughly 32,000 deaths/yr. in the US due to guns.
60% are suicides, that’s ~19,200
3% are accidentals, that’s 960.
4% are justified, that’s 1,280
33% are homicides, that’s 10,560 (still a horrific number)
80% of homicides are gang related, that’s 8,448.
That leaves 2,112 in a society of over 312 million people.
Which equates to 0.010256% of death by a gun across the board. And ~0.00068% of death by a gun if you don’t hang out in the hood with gangs, not planning on committing a suicide, and not planning a crime.

You’re using reason. That does not work on people who are mentally and/or emotionally unstable.
Well, thats because banning guns because the criminals have too many is like castrating yourself because your neighbors have too many kids.
