There already is,

It's called a hunting license, and you can use it every hunting season...

it's a license... to kill...

Unless you're talking about human beings. In which case you should see a psychiatrist.

Think about that for a second,

you want a license, to kill a human being.

I mean, it says a lot for how desensitized we've become when that's something you sit around thinking about.

There's actually no situation in which current gun laws do not give you every bit of protection a person could want (not that owning a gun is even protection really, it's not at all, but that's another arguement I'll be happy to have)

So who are these people that it's currently illegal for you to kill, that you would like special permission to end their lives?

Just curious.

Side: yea

There wouldn't be more murders because people would be like, "Holly crap! If I shoot that dude his homies are gonna come gunning for me."

An armed society is a polite society. ;)

Side: yea

That guy would be more like ' that homie just chaffed my new white nike airs F* THAT MO FO!! ' He would light him up. Then they would have a " homie " war and it would end up in a lot more deaths than if those 2 " gangstaz " those " OGs " had just had a fist fight.

There is a certain kind of license to kill, and that would either have to be a hunting license or a concealed weapons permit. With a concealed weapons permit at hand you can carry a concealed weapon and if threatened by anyone who pulls a gun on you, you can cap their ass, and beat the living shit out of them, and with a hunting license you can kill different animals with different legal rights. So yeah, there shouldn't be a license to kill, because there already is one.

More power to them let them sue you the judge would laugh in their face. Here is how the trial would sound like. Defense lawyer ( DL ) " So you are suing my client because you tripped down his stairs? " Robber ( R ) " Yes sir ". DL " What were you doing in his house? ". R " well sir it was a robbery and I was going down the stairs with his plasma screen TV when ..." Judge " What in the hell is going on? Bailiff cuff that incognizant moron, was he really suing the VICTIM?! He just admitted to committing a felony get him outta here! ".

That would be idiotic. You also have the right to kill someone that has broken into your house. If someone breaks into your house you automatically have the right to blow his brains all over the floor with your 12 gauge shotty.

Oh and one more thing how do you kill someone with a license? ;) JK

Sure! Who doesn't wanna just walk up and kill someone they don't like? (joke)

simply put no. Then there would be no consequences for murder. I could walk up to you Duncer shoot you in the head with a .50 cal beretta sniper rifle and show everyone my license then I could steal your wallet and show everyone my " license to steal " then maybe go beat the crap out of a senior citizen with a walker and flash my " license for battery ". No the idea is ludicrous.

Side: No

exactly. if people had a liscence to kill, there would be murders like crazy just because people had a liscence and there would be nothing people could do about it. and there would be more and more liscences like stealing liscences and such

Side: No

i mean the license for self defence

Side: yea
DaWolfman(3321) Disputed

It is not illegal to kill someone out of self defense. As long as it is not taken to far or out of context. If an old man is running at you with his cane you do not have the right to shoot him. If he had a spiked mace you do have the right. If that man is in your house running at you with his cane ( as long as he has broken in ) you have the right to shoot him. I mean if what you are talking about is have a license to murder someone over a despute then that is not technically self defense. Self defense already is not illegal. It is murder that is illegal not murder in self defense. I do not think that YOU are stupid I just find that this debate to be rather on the incognizant side.

Side: No

If there were a license to kill, every murderer on the planet would jump for joy, go out, buy a license, and kill everyone. If there was a license to kill, there would be a population of about 5 billion instead of 6. If there were a license to kill, the world would be thrown into turmoil. The murder rate would skyrocket off the charts, we would be in the darkest times of our existence. And it would only be a matter of time before Obama used his executive power to revoke all murder licenses, or there was a protest too large to try and resist. If you want a license to kill, just go out to the store and buy Grand Theft Auto, but don't bring the, might I mention, the absurd and pointless violence that game revolves around, to the real world. License to kill = BAD

Side: No

When someone says license to kill it doesn't mean hunting. It is talking about making it legal for someone to be able to kill someone without having to deal with the consequences, and no there shouldn't, you cant have people running around the streets shooting people, or anywhere for that matter, someone needs probable cause on someones life before they can take any where close to an action like that, because they believe they are a threat. In this case, you dont need a gun, hand to hand combat resulting in death is just not as bad, no one should be able to have a license to kill.

Side: No

Nope, there should'nt be a license to kill perhaps not even hunting license.

why ?

Murder is bad even if u murder a single mudfish living in the mangrove swamp..

They feel pain and wants to survive like anyone of us thats why there should'nt be a license to kill. ( At all )

Side: No

A license to kill sends shivers down my spine. I do not approve of it.

Side: no
