If you want to protect yourself, being harmless is a good protection.

But one side uses fear and lies (liberals) while the other side uses truth and logic (pro-2nd amendment).


Someone obviously overlooked Wayne LaPierre's poo-pooing of "Bulletstorm", "Mortal Kombat", "Red Dead Redemption". Et Cetera. People on the left have pointed out that fighting government tyranny would be an extreme scenario (yet it has happened but not very often). Whereas conservatives and libertarians have pointed out that implementing such measures would have messy results.

I happen to think having everybody going around packing heat is insane. It's asking for the very trouble it would deliver. But you Yanks have got so many guns, such slack laws, that you'll never get that toothpaste back in the tube. People expect their (misinterpreted) 2nd Amendment rights and you'd have the biggest bunfight in history if you tried to dial back the number of guns. Y'all are screwed, basically.

Okay, we have a winner! 7eggert is officially the biggest dumbass on the web.

Being harmless makes you safe?

...If you want to protect yourself, being harmless is a good protection. Thieves aren't that dumb, they know killing somebody will make them most wanted in that area. But if they think you'll shoot them, they'll shoot first...

@Deaad_Kittens: It's true! In Canada it's ILLEGAL to defend one's self with a taser OR pepperspray. That's what "nanny-state laws" lead to.
First no pistols
Then no rifles
Then no tasers
Then no pepperspray

It's not "paranoia" it's a FACT (in Canada). Of course criminals still have and use ALL those "illegal" items against defenceless citizens...

Extremeists on both sides have painted it "black & white" it's true. But one side uses fear and lies (liberals) while the other side uses truth and logic (pro-2nd amendment).

1 - That's not an assault rifle. An assault rifle is an automatic, not a semi-automatic.
2 -

What kind of retarded statement is that anyway? I cannot believe you are that f*cking stupid. If you want to bury your head in the sand, go ahead. Just remember, if you continue to do that, one of those thieves you mentioned will blow your ass off.

A gun is made to kill. You can carry a handgun around and kill dozens of people (bullies, kids laughing at you, teachers looking away) in your school. You can do the same using an automatic rifle.

But if you try this using a string, a bat or a knife, you'll soon be overpowered. You'd never do that using a tiny knife. A gun, however, makes you feel strong.

If you want to protect yourself, being harmless is a good protection. Thieves aren't that dumb, they know killing somebody will make them most wanted in that area. But if they think you'll shoot them, they'll shoot first.

To clarify ..I do think the defining lines between what is and isnt banned is a little retarded..and owning and safe operation with proper training in a controlled and safe environment I have no problem with ...I do however have a problem with carry laws..no need to pack heat at the local grocery store ... so many degrees of opinion on this one.... the extremists seem to push the whole black or white thing.. nothing in between.

@5cats I think a better approach would be to legalize tazers for personal carry/protection, tear gas key chains, reform citizen intervention and 'citizen arrest' guidelines.. no need to go straight for the death penalty ..the whole 'he drew first' method just doesnt sit right.

Might have something to do with that albaniana shotgun wedding post a day or two ago lol.

The whole chart is invalid because, as I'm sure ti's been pointed out, the statistics they show are for INDIVIDUAL deaths, except for the assult weapon. That only shows "incidents"... it does not mention how many people were killed in those "incidents".

comparing a mass shooting of 20 elementary school kids to auto accidents is sick. they are in no way similar.

Draculya-"I can think of a way to reduce 6,480 deaths a year right there. "

Yeah, park all cars worldwide for two days.
Cure heart disease for only five hours.
Cure aids for 30 hours.

Draculya-"You're onto a losing argument."

Only an ignorant asswipe would think so (you qualify).

Draculya-"Over 1000 gun deaths in the USA since Sandy Hook"

And in that same time: 55,010 deaths to Heart Disease, 53,000 to cancer, 11,370 to accidents, 6,146 to Diabets and 4,609 due to the flu.

Your point?

@Draculya: It's called "math" eh?
Divide the total number of gun murders by the number of days and it's about 33 per day.
30 days X 33 = WOW! OVER 900!!!!
ffs.
The USA is a BIG place! 3rd largest in the world! Of course the total numbers are going to be high! There's 330 million people ffs!

The RATE in the USA is below the world average.

Answer this: What % of guns used in murders were illegal? The Newton ones were (the killer stole them) illegal... how would more laws "prevent" anything?

I can think of a way to reduce 6,480 deaths a year right there.

Gun nuts, stop posting these. You're onto a losing argument. Better let it drop.

Here's an example. Over 1000 gun deaths in the USA since Sandy Hook:

10Bears-"It shows clearly that if there were no guns, there would be nearly 7,000 less deaths."

Or, more accurately, if there were no guns (impossible, btw), there would be 7,000 deaths by other means.

Stupid Fing anti gun nuts. The AR15 is much less dangerous than many of the guns you don't want to regulate more. Please explain this.

"We should ban cars"

More childrenwere killed last year during an abortion than have been killed by assault rifles in the history of the United States.

That is, if you acknowledge that a fetus with a heart beat is a human child.

@avail9988

Yep, banning cars would reduce the number of vehicle related deaths. It would also come at a cost (more difficult to travel, elimination of car related jobs and income, countless secondary costs, etc).

Banning guns or a subset of guns should only be done if the expected benefits of doing so sufficiently outweigh the expected costs in the foreseeable future. However, I doubt anyone can even come close to accurately predicting the costs and benefits.

I doubt everyone who claims that banning guns or a subset of guns would either have a beneficial or detrimental effect on society. Number of gun deaths is not the only important statistic. Only make claims that you can provide supporting evidence for.
