This paper discusses the idea of eliminating guns in society, noting that there are alternatives to violence that must be pursued. Polls suggest that a large number of Americans, and a clear majority in some states, favor gun control or even the elimination of guns from some regions. According to this paper, gun advocates cite the Second Amendment and hold that guns therefore cannot be eliminated or even controlled. The fact is that the elimination of most guns would certainly reduce gun deaths, reduce much street crime, and eliminate the many gun accidents that occur each year.

From the Paper:

"Gun control in some degree is essential in a society as awash in guns as ours, and the argument that we need guns for hunting has nothing to do with handguns. In a democratic society, there are alternatives to violence that must be pursued. The problem with absolutists is that they cannot lose an argument or admit defeat, and this is an anti-democratic view."
