guns hurt people more than most drugs do. however, a lot of drugs are hella dangerous and shouldn't be legalized

crime would probably be higher if drugs (especially alcohol) were all criminalized and guns were kept legal

the other option probably has a far lower crime rate and death toll

They're designed to hurt!

Drugs.

About 570,000 people die annually due to drug use. That breaks down to about 440,000 from disease related to tobacco, 85,000 due to alcohol, 20,000 due to illicit (illegal) drugs, and 20,000 due to prescription drug abuse.

More than 100,000 people in America are shot in murders, assaults, suicides & suicide attempts, accidents, or by police intervention. 31,537 people die from gun violence: 11,583 people are murdered.

I believe the law should only have prohibitions and regulations in order to prevent people from hurting each other. What one does in his or her own home shouldn't be illegal unless that person is actively having a negative effect on the lives of others. After all, consenting adults are going to get what they want regardless of what some sh*tty law or another says.

Guns. I hate guns. If someone gets mad in the heat of the moment, they can end someone's life with a gun. Drugs are pathetic, and they can take lives away slowly, but at least a druggie is hurting him or herself.

Unless the parent has children.

Don't blame the gun(inanimate object) for the disgusting actions of a person.

Yeah, but the point is, even if it's a huge generalisation, a person can cause more harm with guns than drugs.

I'd still use both if illegal so no choice guns protect as do "drugs"

I said guns but i think both are illegal

guns allow people to protect themselves. the second amendment is a great thing to have.

i have yet to see someone who has benefited from cocaine or heroin besides the guys pushing the product.

yeah, but their personal lives are a mess. sports accolades are awesome and all, but i'd prefer to have drugs stay out of it.

i'm going to start doing coke.

watch how many home runs i'm going to hit.

Guns are legal. So are some drugs. This question is too broad. I don't know which specific drugs you're reffering to and I don't know what guns you would be reffering to. Too difficult to answer.

But I think drugs should be legalized.

Guns. I'd love to see people fight with swords instead.

Whatever is illegal is only obtained by criminals.

Guns. The answer seems obvious. Rather a drugged up society than an easily lethal one. (Are we taking out nukes and laser weapons?)

I'm sad to tell you, this is not true. Prescription drugs alone, kill many more people then guns.

A year later I was about to answer this question with exactly the same quote. I can't imagine what would happen if handguns were made legal for ordinary people.

Since drugs kill more people I want those to stay legal.
5 yrs ago - Monday 6/6/16 - 8:36:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
Both!

Legalise weed, ban everything else.
