    If your neighbor believes that guns only cause death and have no redeeming qualities, I'm sure he would appreciate your attempts to support his viewpoint.

    Here's a good way to help him with his philosophy.

    .....or you can give your neighbor his very own sign, he can put on his lawn instead:

    Please put one of those signs beside my house.

    How many times have you been broken into?

    How many people have you shot?

    I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

    I have not had my house broken in to since I lived here. But it was broken into before I bought it.

    Also, I don't have good statistics, but the not so good stats that I found indicate that guns are used to prevent, abort, or deter attacks about 2 million times per year.

    Additionally:

    "For example in the early 80's a law was passed that liberalized the self defense laws for people who had an intruder in their home. As a result of these laws the incidence of burglaries for occupied dwellings dropped by almost 80%. Since this type of crime had a high incidence of violent acts against the occupants - the uncertainty of whether or not a homeowner was armed caused the criminals to switch to criminal acts with a lower potential for violence."

    Not once. I live where one can defend one's life AND property with deadly force. There aren't a whole lot of home break-ins here. They go to places like.....your house.
