However, it's harder to kill with a knife than with a gun.

The standard carbine makes a fantastic home defense weapon. It's compact, easy to maneuver, allows for quick follow up shots if necessary and has the stopping power that only a rifle has. Mount a weapon light and you never have to take your hands off to sweep your home.
And it has nothing to do with being a bad shot. There are scores of records of guys shot with handguns who were simply tough enough, mean enough, had enough drugs in their system or no vital areas were impacted, who just keep coming. That's guys shot by "highly trained" police officers.
Fighting for your life is not like sitting a tree stand waiting for the 8 point to stop or blasting paper targets at the range. It's a stressful situation that makes it very easy to not get ideal shot placement to stop an attacker. Even small differences in approach angles can mean vital areas are missed completely...
Due to the increased energy levels, a rifle round is a lot more forgiving of shot placement, at the same time the increased sight radius and having two hands on the weapon to steady provides for more accurate shots.

I agree with Razor. I don't want the abolition of guns but it sure seems strange not even to consider stricter gun control as a possible solution
i dont want anybody who is a threat to use a gun in an unintended manor to get a gun either, but it does not mean i am against more stringent control manners, but when you start limiting types of guns, i have a problem. make it as hard as you want, but guns will still find their way in the hands of those who will abuse them....and here is the most important part....REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE ILLEGAL. i would be hesitantly willing to agree to waiting periods, more thorough background checks, and mental stability screenings, but unfortunately, that would have zero impact on what just took place. that POS was no different that any other criminal. he STOLE a weapon, used it on its owner, and then proceeded to murder others who had no defense.
its a multifactoral problem and people want to simply it saying that if the guns are illegal, these types of things wont happen. i wish that were true, but i think we all know that is a pipe dream when we look to the flood of drugs that are on our streets. making them illegal would only impact the regular joe and his ability to defend himself from anything he perceived as a threat. its simply not as easy as many want to believe.

That's just it. It has been considered as a solution over the last 80 years or so and it was found to be lacking as a solution. It's like you guys aren't paying attention.
The '94 AWB
The Brady Bill
Those are just the major changes to federal law that have continually tightened who, what, when and where a gun can be bought and yet here we are, nothing has changed.
If it wasn't packed up in anticipation of selling our house, I'd take a picture of the regulation books that BATFE sends me every year as an FFL holder. It's seriously 3.5 inches thick and printed on damn near bible pages. That's the entirety of firearms law and regulation in the US. Pages upon pages of laws that if violated will get you a $10k fine with 10 in the pen.
JFC the definition of insanity is doing the same shit over and over again but expecting a different result...
You want to make the country safer, here's some ideas.
1. Find a way to ID the nutjobs and treat them through involuntary committment if necessary. As it stand we wait for the nuts to actually hurt somebody and then ship them off to prison. I saw a stat at one point that said 20-35% of inmates were incarcerated had some form of mental illness, and a significant portion's crimes were attributable to that illness.
2. Reform our criminal justice system to get rid of the non-violent offenders and keep the violent offenders locked up. You've got a lot more room for armed robbers and murderers in prison when you're not locking people up for dealing weed and prostitution.
3. Take even some minimal defensive measures at places where people congregate unarmed, especially children.

And maybe the president is a space alien and the world is going to end at 11AM tomorrow
If you really believe that to be the case, then explain how. I can guarantee you that's not the case...
