Should We Support Gun Control

Gun control, is it really necessary? A lot of the politicians in the house say that gun control is a vital part in making Canada safe for everyone to live in, yet 80% of the people supporting gun control live in cities. There is nothing wrong with the way things are right now in respect to the laws that are already in place to deal with people and their firearms. Already you have to have an FAC in order to purchase any firearms and any children that want to hunt have to take a course through Fish and Wildlife, what more could you ask for. The Federal government should not have to know where all the guns are and how many there are, it is just a waste of the tax payers dollars that could be better spent else where, like Medicare and education. When you live in the country a gun is not so much a weapon but a tool, say you have a pack full of coyotes in your field and it is calving season, you have to get rid of the coyotes a gun is a lot quicker and more humane than poisoning them or sending dogs after them. I can understand how people in the city do not like having firearms around since there is no real purpose for them, but they have to look at it from all the hunters and ranchers point of view out there that use them on a regular basis. Even once all of the guns are registered you don t really think that the criminals of the world are going to register theirs, they will simply take someone else s that is registered, you can not tell me then that it will not come back on the person that it is registered to. In concluding it is not guns that kill people it is people that kill people, and in my opinion gun control is being able to hit your target.
