I wasn't arguing about about individual cases. Sometimes having an air bag helps you in an accident and sometimes that airbag kills you. Likewise, you can claim guns don't protect people and in some cases that is true. However, in many cases they do. It should be up to the individual to decide what is best for themselves.
This country was founded with the right to bear arms to help protect against a runaway government mainly. Govt. is people. It is about being prepared for anything. You try to make it out to be people buying guns to kill other people and that isn't the motivation (except in the case of extreme criminals).
You live in another culture, one without many guns. SO maybe you are afraid of them. I come from an area with a lot of guns and so maybe I am not afraid of them. They have their uses in addition to "just in case" and I don't mind people having them.
