Nope. There's no need for them in society, so why change?
No. Decent people get firearms, then they are stolen, now less-than-decent people have firearms.
No. We do not need them. The American way leads to too many shootings.
Nope we would have to fundamentally change our society if it was too happen.
Make killing tools ubiquitous. What could possibly go wrong.
If this ever happens, I'm moving to Denmark. Happiest country in the world, dontcha know
Yes. People who live in cities perhaps don't realise this, but out here in the countryside, if a violent thug breaks into my home and I call the police, it will be half an hour before they arrive due to the simple logistics of getting them here. The thug has plenty of time to kill or seriously injure me and my family, cause serious damage, steal our valuables and get away. Obviously it goes without saying that not all types of gun should become legal and an extensive background and circumstances check should be conducted before the granting of a gun license, together with perhaps an annual mental health assessment by a psychiatrist for all gun licenseholders, to prevent another Dunblane, but it's not fair that I shouldn't be able to defend myself because background and health check laws weren't stringent enough and so some whackjob committed a massacre.
Every male member of the household should be conscripted or sent to social services, like in Germany. Then, after those who graduate from the army have a family, they should be required to own and maintain an assault rifle for the defence of their household and community.
Further, defence laws need to be changed so that maiming and killing in self-defence and defence of property are not punishable.
However the UK has the opposite mentality. I think if or when mass civil unrest happens, people will start thinking very differently.
