Other - Politics & Government: Do you believe in strict gun control?
- Harry ButtsLv 51 month agoFavorite Answer
Strict gun control only favors criminals and politicians with authoritarian streaks. Or, as they're called in America, the Democratic Party.

Strict? No. But changes need to be made.

I would like to see the assault weapons ban reinstated and made permanent. The Brady bill that Bill Clinton signed had a ban on assault weapons but was allowed to sunset (expire) 10 years later.

Gun ownership should be handled as the public health and public safety issue it is.
Many gun advocates recently have pointed out "Well, cars kill people, too, so should we outlaw cars?" Here's the thing: with cars, we have passed laws making it illegal to drive while drinking or on drugs, requiring the use of seatbelts, making sure all cars and all drivers are registered and all drivers pass a driving and informational test, requiring people to carry insurance, requiring the auto companies to make cars safer with features like rear view cameras, seatbelts and air bags, making drivers accountable for unsafe driving both economically and legally, setting safe speed limits, etc. And these laws have greatly reduced fatal car accidents and made our highways safer.
So what would be wrong with passing similar laws to make guns and gun use safer?

When all guns are outlawed, only the outlaws will have guns.

Yes. When you aim at a target you need to have it totally under control.

Sure, I am always in control over all of my guns.
