After that first Hitler comment I stopped reading the thread so this, from thenedman, would have been spot on if I would have read it.

"aaaaaand McGovern has made the Hitler reference, the thread is now dead. Thanks everybody for playing, better luck next time."

@NOCASH

american version of freedom is living in fear of being attacked constantly and having the right to defend themselves with a firearm

You are being very over-dramatic. I do not worry about such events, as most Americans do not. Statistically, I should be much more worried about being killed in a car accident, lightening strike, etc. than in a mass murder.

Vigilance, not fear... I'm not afraid that someone will break into my house and try to rape my girlfriend in the middle of the night. However, I find it wise to be prepared for such a situation in the unlikely event that it occurs. Even in your Canada, these things happen. As such, you, as an individual, should have the capacity to protect yourself.

I imagine previous unarmed victims wish they were more prepared.

@thenedman

However, policy makers can not create laws that work for individual situations, they have to use the percentages on a national or maybe state level.

The problem is that they cross into the realm of limiting an individual in a potentially detrimental way, in order to prevent them from doing something they may or may not do. We should be exceptionally wary of such laws that prevent us from doing something (owning a firearm) that does not infringe on the rights of others to prevent us from doing something that we are statistically never likely to do.

I do think that this comes down to a fundamental philosophy difference. For you, it is OK to sacrifice an individual liberty if it benefits the society to a greater degree. I do not believe it is OK to sacrifice an individual liberty if it does not infringe on the rights of others...

My apologies for the delay...

but I can never see why as a society having more people die would ever be a good thing

Well it's not, per se. The question is whether or not the alternative is righteous and sensible.

It was a hypothetical situation; as such, I had the authority to dictate the "without a doubt" part... The point I was making was that, by outlawing firearms, such situations may occur in which you essentially sacrifice an individual for the "greater good"... When we start justify actions and legislation because of the "greater good", nothing good follows.

[quote]For me to have the dramatic decrease in homicides overall is worth an increase in lesser crimes where people can carry on living.[/quote]
A much more dramatic increase in "smaller" crimes...

Guns are to blame for this as much as Facebook is.
