南アフリカで非常に重要なトピックでは、と関係している 火器 と私たちの個人的に私たちの権利 セキュリティー. 誤解しないでください: 私は誰もが負担する権利を持つべきであると信じていないよ バズーカ, M82, または AK-47自動小銃 * – あなたがする必要はありませれない限り 軍隊から身を守る **.

しかしながら, 私は自己防衛を目的として、ある種の武器を所有する権利を持っていると信じています. 私は私が今までしかし銃器を購入したい疑う, いなくても 小さなピストル, しかし、私は考えることを好むだろうと 必要性が生じた場合, 私はまだ権利を持っている.

あり 2 反対側のチーム. プロ銃のチームと抗ガンのチームがあります (プロコントロール). 私はかつてそれは大丈夫だろうと思った, 言う, 我々はわずかな火器が許可されている場所に取り掛かるまで、すべての戦いに勝つためにプロ管理チーム, 非常に厳しい状況で、またはおそらく大きな銃器. 最近, 私の考えではシフトしている. プロ管理チームは、その時点までのすべての法廷闘争に勝利した場合, 彼らは同様に、次の戦いに勝てないと言うと、完全に銃器を禁止するものだ?

私は私が所有する権利を持つべきであると考えているというだけの理由プロ銃チームによ, ことによると, その小さなピストル – のように愚かである私はだろうから 恐らく 権利を行使することはありません. そのほとんど間違いはない無意味しかし. 再び, 私はむしろ権利を持っているし、それを必要としないだろう.

この非常に低いシナリオを描く: あなたは小さなピストルを所有する権利を保護したい; 個人バズーカとガトリング砲は有効です; 法律はバズーカとガトリング砲を違法作り始めるところにある. あなたはプロピストルしていると仮定, あなたは脇に立って、相手チームを聞かせてください (プロコントロール) その法廷闘争に勝つ? 考えるために、その重要な道徳的ジレンマ – そして、あなたはおそらく、あなたの他の政治的信念のすべてに適用されるべき1.

ここでは、思考のためのいくつかの食品です:

  • 南アフリカは、最も高いを持っている (または番目に高い, あなたが尋ねる人に応じて、) 世界でも犯罪率.
  • 98% 南アフリカの銃関連の犯罪の違法の使用を含む (無免許の) 火器 (すなわち, 銃規制法は適切に銃関連の犯罪を抑制しないでください).
  • 降り続く以前にライセンスの銃器の再ライセンスを必要とする銃器の法律では比較的最近の変化に, CFR (中央銃器登録) 任務されています, の期間 2006 へ 2009, これまでに、以前に個々の年で処理よりも、許可申請は毎年の4倍以上の数を処理する.
  • それは今の間に取り 12 と 24 銃器ライセンスを取得するために数ヶ月.

正直に言うと, 私はこの1で2心のまだだ. 私は非常に私たちの国の銃器を担当するに賛成だ – しかし、私は確かにプロの対照群がこれ以上したくない “進捗”.

多分世界は事を学ぶことができましたか 2 から スイス. 彼らの市民は、19世紀から完全武装してきた – 彼らはまた、外に宿泊している唯一の国だ 世界大戦の両方.

* 自身の銃器を行う人のために, 私 心から あなたが約妄想じゃない願っています 危険. 私はあなたの銃器の自身の金庫から安全な別々に格納されている弾薬を持っている願っています, その内の全員 世帯 理解し、 実際にどのように危険な銃器です.

  1. There is no single situation conceivable that will not be made worse by the addition, in any way, of a firearm of any description.

    If armed men are breaking into your house, and you have a gun, they will kill you outright, because you are a threat. You might be lucky and get one or two of them first, but you’ve already noted how guns and ammunition should be stored separately, and securely: in order to keep your guns safe from your children, you have to make them effectively inaccessible to yourself when you really (think that you) need them. I’d further note that these men are used to guns and used to shooting peopleyou are just somebody who owns a gun because you help it will somehow help you.

    (If you do not have a gun, and they break in, your chances of living are slightly increased, because, since you’re not a threat, they might lock or tie you up.)

    I’ll say it again: there is no situation where the existence of firearms (even in the possession of thegoodies”) will improve the outcome.

    I’d further note that if you are able toshoot the baddies”, you’re also able (and likely) to shoot your teenage son when he tries to sneak home from partying at 5am.

    You are simply not somebody who should be burdened with the responsibility of who to try to kill.

    To summarise: guns are bad.

  2. Your assessment may be correct for the majority of persons in this country, and possibly even most situations.

    I think that it comes down to your personal attitude towards firearms. I *do* believe that a psychological assessment is a good idea for the process of acquiring a license.

    The main attitude contrast can best be shown by comparing Switzerland to the US:
    Switzerland has a regulated militia, whereas the US has many separate militias, where only the National Guard of each state could be counted as a regulated militia. Effectively, the majority of the US’smilitiais unregulated. Both countries have very lax gun-control laws. Switzerland, until 1999 had *no* federal gun control laws. ザ 1 law they have had since before 1999 is the one *requiring* all male citizens between the age of 20 と 42 to keep an automatic rifle in their home. The law introduced in 1999 now also requires these rifle-owners to periodically engage in combat and marksmanship training.

    Yet in the US, you are about 6 times as likely to be a victim of gun-related crime than in Switzerland.

    The Swiss have indoctrinated a positive attitude into their citizens and are the better for it. In sunny SA, you have to do that for yourself.

    I agree that you shouldn’t think just because you have a gun that you are capable of using it. This is where training comes in. There are many firearms training facilities in the country. Their numbers are dwindling however.

    On the topic of being tied up instead of killed, I don’t have a family yet, though I do plan on having one. I’m not so sure I or my (future) family would be better off if I were tied up while my wife and daughters are raped. Sure, given the firearm, there is still a slightly higher chance that I might be killed and that would not be a better situation in any way. That is a risk assessment that someone applying for a license needs to make for themselves. I believe this is also a part of the psychological assessment.

    再び, your personal attitude towards the firearm is very important. The burden of taking life (or limb) should be a conscious decisionone you make even before you apply for a license. If you can’t decide honestly and absolutely, firearms are not for you.

  3. Intruders can have their way with my wife and kids over my dead body. Obviously, I will want to take as many of them as I can with me.

    That said, I do not own a gun at this time, since the combination of where I live and my perimeter security give me reasonable peace of mind, and all security is a trade offintroducing a gun into my house at this point would be too risky.

    If I did purchase a gun, it would be under the following conditions: My entire family would be trained to respect the weapon, and all those old enough would be trained to use it effectivelystarting withNever point it at anyone, under any conditions, unless you mean to shoot them”. The weapon would be stored appropriately to the conditions of the time: from unloaded in the safe (useless tactically but relatively safe and potentially useful in the future) to cocked and locked on my person.

    Having an unloaded gun in a safe is quicker to access than a 12 へ 24 month wait for the licence

    Give guns to Swiss people, and nothing happens (to crime). Their culture is non-violent.

    Give guns to South Africans (without the means to recover unlicensed arms) and the muggers on the street won’t be coming at you with just knives any more.

    Large numbers of guns in the country is *not* the cause of violent crime. If you have a violent country, that is independent of the presence or absence of weaponry. But if you do have a violent country (like SA), don’t go making guns easily available.

    Switzerland can do what they please, but I’m in favour of stricter gun control, particularly sales and imports, in South Africa.

  5. Tofamily_guy”: this kind of irrational, emotional gut reaction is pretty much the only argument I’ve ever heard from the pro-gun crowd. “They’ll have their way with my family over my dead body”. はい. はい, you’re right. They will shoot you, and then have their way with your family.

    This foaming at the mouth aboutI’LL KILL THEM ALLridiculous. It leaves out all the real arguments about guns and whether or not they’ll have any effect, and lapses back into a red-eyed hatred of the baddies.

    You’re not Rambo.

  6. That is very naive Jonathan. I have been in three situations where having a firearm was a great help, and things would have turned ugly for quite a few people if I wasn’t armed. It turned ugly for 3 people, but I’m very sure they knew the risks when they got up that morning and pocketed their illegally acquired firearms. I was in a fourth situation that might also have turned out better if I had been armed. That sounds like a monologue from a Rambo movie, I don’t know how to make it less cheesy sounding. *blush*
    I could of course be making this up and there really is no conceivable reason to own a gun. I’m not, but how could I possibly prove it?
    Actually I’m against people owning guns. Most people are absolute idiots and lose their guns, get drunk and shoot people or get them taken from them and possibly get shot with their own firearm. If I have to lose my right to own a firearm to keep them out of the hands of the other idiots out there, fine.

    Like Graham pointed out, we live in a dangerous and violent society and that is the problem. If it wasn’t for firearms they’d probably use the next best thing. A knife, garden fork or machete. It really doesn’t matter. They’ll find something, 何でも, since the idea is to gain the upper hand.

    I tend to agree with family_guy. The fact of the matter is your family depend on you to protect them.
    I’m of the opinion I’d rather die or go to jail to protect my family than do nothing – and this is really the end of the discussion. Not all of us have some British passport

    That being said, I do believe guns should be safely locked away and only used as a last resort.

    I agree that most people that own firearms are idiots and in most cases it turns out to be to their disadvantage but in my case (and I don’t own a firearm) if I did I would go through extensive advanced training to make sure I know how to use one and more importantly, when to use it. one of the previous comments states that most of therobbersknow how to use their weapon. this surely cannot be the case. first of all most of them use stolen guns and often had not even used that specific gun before. second, if they could afford the extensive training that I would get then they would not be robbing people in the first place. And believe me, a lot of these guys are almost as scared, if not as scared as you are. surely I am in a better position to use my firearm more effectively than they are? it is the same thing as saying 15% of the time, the person would have survived a car accident if they were not wearing their seat belt. Is that a risk you are going to take? If you are properly trained on all aspects of owning a firearm your chances of a better result are better than your chances without. In the end of the day, it all comes down to how serious you are about the firearm and if you are buying it to make yourself feel safer, or if you are actually going to do what it takes (extensive training) to actually make it safer in reality. 残念ながら, in reality, most of the time its just to make you feel safer and that, in the end, is more dangerous than not having it in the first place. But I can guarantee, in my case it would work to my advantage because I am realistic and serious about it and I am not doing it to add a few inches like most do….
