What do you think about guns? In the USA, anyone can purchase a gun when they are 18 years old.

Here in Brazil since 2003, the beginning of the Disarmament Statute, the rates of violence have grown absurdly. The vast majority of the population was left unarmed, which has been great for all kinds of thieves, murderers and rapists. So here we already know that disarming the population only looks good, but in fact it is not. In practice, in Brazil, we only have armed criminals and the rest of the population remains defenseless and scared. There are always ways to obtain illegal weapons and the Government can not prevent anyone from doing so.

@Herley M. Guimarães is quite right about Brazil's guns scenario... Here the homicides rate is absurd, many times higher than the US (where guns are allowed) so less guns is not equal to less homicides/deaths, period. This is a fact and not an opinion.

Now, that said, about my opinion, I don't know how it works in your country, but here if you call the police saying that armed people are trying to invade your house they most likely will say that they don't have available police force to go to your home and a long time after maybe they will show up to see you're still alive. So for me, In the reality of where I live, I don't think that is fair that if like three guys are trying to enter my house and possibly rape my wife and kill my son that I'm not allowed to have a chance to defend who I love and myself... Where is human rights in a situation like this?

So yes I think that guns, in Brazil, should be allowed to population as we don't have a proper way to defend ourselves.

Tools which were created for the only goal of killing. Doesn't sound any good, don't you think?    

The Brazilian problem isn't the disarmament law. Please be kind and don't spread misinformation!

Personally I hate guns and I think it's totally insane to make them available to anyone. But that's just my opinion.
