I have always wanted to put this one to the test of a global audience - guns yes or no in USA? Is the second amendment outdated 221 years after it was adopted? This is the main question I would like your feedback to, the videos are just for an illustration.

Guns deserve a big NO, in USA and everywhere else in the world. Not only should guns be illegal but they should also be made much more unavailable than is the case today. That is the real issue.

Guns should not be made available to anyone, even the police. We are humans, for God's sake. We should be able to resolve conflicts with what separates us from animals (OUR MINDS). And you know what, we can. It's just that we're still living with the mindset that our neighbors have guns, which means we also need them. The fact of the matter is that the right to own a gun is, more often than not, in direct conflict with the inherent, inalienable right to life. We have lost too many lives, too many children in senseless shootouts just because somebody with a motive just happened to have easy access to a gun. Imagine if the guy who killed all those children at Sandy Hooks did not have access to a gun.
Also, the argument that the state should not have a monopoly over violence is incorrect. The state acts as a representative of people, protecting laws that people put in place for their betterment.

Owning and carrying a gun makes people braver and bolder. It gives them that certain stature others don't have, and that's what make them very dangerous. Just imagine people get shot just for a mere traffic argument.

Violence can only generate more violence. Conflicts should be resolved peacefully or by legal means. Otherwise, we're back to the Wild West. We, as a society (of the 21st century!) shouldn't give a chance for violence to spread.

Guns are horrible things and I believe, with every part of my being, that if there were no guns whatsoever there would be far less suffering and fear on Earth. Not only are they a deadly tool in the hands of the mentally ill or criminal, they can also cause fatal accidents from carelessness, oversight or panic as has happened many times.

Also, notably, in Dunblane, Scotland, 1996, there was a dreadful gun massacre. Firearms were then banned completely in Britain for civilians and there has not been a repeat of that incident yet. Gun bans work.

The state just simply should not have the monopoly on violence.

Although I am deeply disturbed by the random violence in our society I do not believe excessive violence is a viable solution. So many of the deadly crimes that are committed are not by registered gun owners. The shooter often does not have the legal right to be using the weapon. This tells me that even under the tightest restrictions, criminals will still find a way to access firearms. If a law-abiding citizen has their right to bear arms taken from them How can he possibly defend his family?
