There's been a lot of talk on the Katrina threads about the impact of the easy availability of guns on the situation there.
It seems some people think that crime won't necessarily increase if guns laws are relaxed or legalised.
I'm against it. Even if criminals can still get hold of them easily enough (if that's true), I still can't see how making guns more readily available can do anything but increase problems and crime. For instance:
A man is at the end of his tether and decides to rob a garage. He doesn't know how to get a gun but goes ahead anyway and pretends he has one on under his jacket. No one is shot. Same man in the US can easily get a gun at the UK equivalent of Wal-mart.
The United Kingdom has some of the strictest gun legislation in the world. All guns except low-powered airguns and shotguns (which have a less strict control system), can only be obtained if a person holds a "firearms certificate" (gun licence) which can be obtained from the local police, and is renewable every five years.
From June 2003 to June 2004, recorded gun crime in the UK rose by 3% to 10,590 incidents. There was also a 14% rise in violent crime in the April-June period (265,800 incidents compared to 223,600 the previous year). Advocates on both sides of the gun control debate have argued how this is correctly interpreted with no consensus.
Yet, Britain remains one of the countries with the lowest homicide rate in the world accounting for 853 homicides in the reporting period 2003/04 according to the UK Home Office for Crime Statistics.
Some points against liberalisation:
that there is no fundamental right to own firearms
that guns are more dangerous to the owners than intended targets because most gun related deaths are a result of domestic violence, accidents and suicides
that guns are often of little use as self defense for the typical owner because in the incidents where a hostile encounter with an armed criminal occurs, the criminal is usually more experienced and skilled with his/her weapon
that even against unarmed criminals, the presence of a gun serves most often simply to escalate the likelihood and/or severity of violence
that the government has no right to interfere with an individual's right to own firearms as long as the individual is not harming or intimidating fellow citizens
that guns in the hands of the populace decrease crime
that citizens have a right to self-protection
that an armed populace decreases the overall risk of violent crime, because it acts as a deterrent for criminals who cannot know whether their next prospective victim - or someone nearby - will turn out to be armed
that carrying firearms properly makes one safer, not less safe; for the same reason that police forces carry firearms
that gun ownership protects citizens from the excesses of government, and provides the possibility of revolution, if necessary.
