A lot of people (good and bad) have guns in America. There are two ways to look at the situation... either restrict or take away everyone's guns, or make sure even more people have guns. One of these solutions makes sense to me... the other does not.
Here is Gingrich's quote:
"I believe the NRA has been too timid. A Gingrich presidency will submit to the United Nations a treaty that extends the right to bare arms as a human right for every person on the planet because every person on the planet deserves the right to defend themselves from those who would oppress them."
I love that South Korea does not have guns. I love that police officers that patrol the streets in South Korea do not carry guns. I have lived in South Korea for three years and have never once felt unsafe or threatened. This is because South Korea is serious about fighting poverty (which is the root cause of all street crime) and restricting the availability of weapons and firearms to the general population.
Maybe the Second Amendment is great for America. But this is just more conservative, American hubris declaring that our way is the best way and the one true way (despite the overwhelming contradiction presented by all available evidence and facts).
