Is it possible? of course it's possible he might not have killed her had he not had a gun at that exact momment.

However that is not the point of gun control. It's the cover story that has been fed to the sheeple such as yourself OP, it is an emotional appeal designed to manipulate you.

Gun control solves everything. Just look at all those gun free zones.

This is another sad story. Could gun control have at least prevented the murder? Without easy access to guns, domestic fights like this might not take a murderous turn.

Gun control is like banning cars to prevent drunk driving.

He could have just hit her helmet to head, of course that is a 15 yd penalty and a fine from the NFL.

Prohibition of guns doesn't work. It just makes them even more readily available on the black market -- if guns are made illegal, they'd be as easily obtained as pot and meth.

Exactly. London just had the worst gun violence in its history long after guns were banned in all of England. The criminal use of guns overall has risen as well. I disagree with conservatives on a lot of things, but it amazes me how liberals tout science, academia and studies, yet the ignore they irrefutable evidence that gun control does not have any impact on gun crime (and in fact may increase it).

Well if we go by that logic, GUNS SAVE LIVES!


Ron Goldman, and Nicole Brown Simpson died when a football player DOESN'T have a gun.



If OJ had a gun, Ron Goldman may be alive today...












Offhand, what if the football player didn't have a gun and was trying to kill the girl OJ simpson style, but the girl was carrying a gun and defened herself and killed him.

Would we still claim gun control?

Ugg....GUN control not drug control. That's what I get for jumping debates...

Nobody has been manipulated. I don't think private citizens that live in big cities need to have guns. In the heat of an argument having a gun handy makes it much more easy to kill another person.
