@Gerry,

To me (and any sane person) the preference in the rape case is simple:



Gauddith-"that apple had to be killed"

Killed? Seriously? How do you manage to survive? Off sunshine?

Recently? Yes! It's what's timely & topical, eh?
I haven't put up a "Zimmerman vs Martin" post in a while, you'll notice.

I've also suggested MANY wondeful things which were 100% NON-political.
Like that comet that's coming in November!
LeeluCutieSpecial < and THIS! Sooo good! Hurry up and post it @FancyLad!

the only purpose of a gun is to kill.

@synaw: Hunting is no longer allowed? Defending one's home is no longer allowed? Simply collecting because you like it is no longer allowed?
Sometimes killing is required, for food or defence. People are FREE in the USA to buy legal things with their own money. What they legally buy shouldn't require "government permission".

Welcome to IAB anyhow!

@spermninja: Wiki: Rwanda Genocide. Over 500K dead (perhaps 1 million) and many, if not half, were killed with machettes... there's LOTS of "knife attacks" but the "news" simply pays no attention to them.

@Kickan: Oh ho ho! Euro-sarcasm! Y'all can click on my name (profile) and see the 200+ things I've posted: MOST are not political.
I also have suggested 4X that number, again MOST were not political either.
Suck it up, buttercup.

synaw-
"the only purpose of a gun is to kill."

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Let's take some real life situations: "Home Invasion" and "Rape"

No one one wants to be the victim of a home invasion, but they do happen and gun control wont stop them so if you were on the receiving end of a home invasion would you ..
A: Want to be completely unarmed and rely on the good nature of the crooks to not hurt you.
or
B: Have a loaded weapon to defend yourself and home?

In the case of rape, god forbid {tui-tui} but if it happened would you...
A: Want to have no reacourse but to let him and hope he doesn't kill you, too.
or
B: Reach in your purse and shoot his nuts off?

Give everybody guns, wall up the country and see what happens. Would take care single greatest threat of this world have endure: USA. A country that thinks it's above all international agreements and laws, a country that systematically tortures people, country that sends drones to kill, the country that does nothing else but ruin this planet and likes to kill, kill, kill.

Grendel I'm really happy for you and I'm going to let you finish, but that apple had to be killed in order for it to be shot.

Also, you're correct we don't just use them to kill anymore, but we made them to kill in the first place. Your argument is silly, I'd go with,

"Who cares if guns were made to kill people, It's my right to use one to defend myself from someone who has the intent to kill me. If I have to kill someone because they intended to end my life then so be it, only I have to live with the repercussions of my actions. Albeit sad when someone is killed needlessly, for the most part I feel guns are for the greater good when in the hands of a normal responsible citizen of any country. Far be it from me to have the desire to defend and protect that wich I have worked to build."

Instead of the ol', "herp derp liberal's ruinin' mah country and mah gun is a tool see here is a picture to disprove everything you've ever said" crap I k

Apart from a few cases in China, knives have rarely been used in a killing spree. I don't know of any disturbed individuals committing mass murder with a garrotte or baseball bat either, Two mass shootings in about 6 months, resulting in the loss of nearly forty innocent lives, that's what has started this debate. maybe a ban on semi automatics is not going to make a huge difference, but surely questions need to be asked about ways to make people safer?. If the loonies start using their cars to run over as many people as they can, surely similar questions would be asked? ie; what can we do to prevent this kind of thing happening again?.

synaw-"the only purpose of a gun is to kill."

Repeating that does not make it true.




Look, that one was not used to kill, so obviously your statement has been disproven.

5cats what you fail to realize is that all those other things have other purposes. the only purpose of a gun is to kill.

This is my last comment on any of his bulls.hit.

AHHAHAAA!
I missed reading that until @mocrules quoted it!

OH-I-WISH it were true! You've promised that before, and yet you refuse to shut up!

And then I prove you WRONG again, and you call me names AGAIN. Don't you get tired of doing either? What sort of person are you @HG?

Not one I'd care to meet in r/l, that's for sure.

Hey! You don't like my suggestions?
#1 Don't read them
#2 Suggest better
#3 Complain to @FancyLad (lolz! See what THAT gets you!)
#4 Cry

Censorship has been attempted before, but I for one think it has NO place at IAB. Except when @FancyLad does it, because it's -his- website...

"Eliminate all the tiny countries and what are you left with?"
@HG: You're left with dozens of LARGE countries with higher murder rates than the USA...

Like I said: World average = apx 7.
Is the USA over or under that?

Countries By Population

What is "large" @HG? 10 million? 20? You love making stuff up, eh?

Homicide Rates By Nation

If there's 100 people in a country, and 2 of them get murdered? Then HELLS YES that's a freaking dangerous place to live!

"Hey guys, if you think the dumb s.hit 5cats posts is f.ucking retarded just ignore it. Don't comment on it. Tons of comments and clicks is the reason the site posts his crap. We all flood here to tell him how dumb whatever he posts is and IAB gets tons of page views. It just ensures they will post his next moronic conservative trite."

I have been thinking that for weeks now! Tired of seeing his posts with so many comments. All of which are just bitching back and forth. He is an Internet troll and nothing more. Please stop commenting on his moronic posts.

"This is my last comment on any of his bulls.hit." Same for me!

"Eliminate all the tiny countries..."
@HolyGod What are you "on about" now? Just drop anything that doesn't "fit your theory" eh? That's science! Well it's AGW science anyhow.

Mexico is "tiny"? Columbia (47M) Sudan (31M) PAKISTAN? Is THAT "tiny" with it's 181M people and it's 7.8 murder rate?

The"world average" is around 7, and what's the USA? Above or below that?

"the dumb s.hit 5cats posts is f.ucking retarded"

Nice @HG! Nice! Oh but I'm the one who "is mean to you" - liberal hypocrite.

"Wasn't there a Mod or something..."
@QueenZira: Ah, censorship! The "liberal's trump card"! If you can't disprove what he says? SILENCE HIM.
Worked for Stalin!

@jbwhite: "kitchen knives" are 'restricted' in UK, you think that's a good idea?

jbwhite-"guns have one intention, to cause damage"

Guns have one intention, to throw a peice of cylindrical metal away from itself as accurately as possible.

jbwhite-"a baseball bat"

Is made to hit things. It is, of course, derived from the Club, which was designed to kill.

jbwhite-"some piano wire"

Make a damn fine garrot.

jbwhite-"kitchen knife"

Noticed how you put the limiting term 'kitchen' in there, as the advent of the knife was for, of course, killing people and animals. While a 'kitchen' knife is design to cut veggies, a 'Trench knife' was intended to kill, as is a shiv, rampuri, dagger, combat knife, & bayonet

guns have one intention, to cause damage, a baseball bat, a kitchen knife, or some piano wire were all made for a specific purpose other than causing harm, guns were made to cause harm

HolyGod-"Can any gun person tell me what the hell the 1,684 murders by "Other guns or type not stated""

Quite a few of them would be home-made guns, bang-sticks and/or 'zip'guns.

You didn't think that guns were hard to make, did you? That if you stop BIG manufacturers from producing them no one with a shop would be able to make big money selling them?

Want a gun? What kind? I can make you one that looks like a cell phone in a week. One that looks like a pen in a day.

With what I have in my very limited shop, I can make a revolver or a semi-automatic pistol with very little effort.

Usually, about this time is when someone say 'get rid of the bullets.' Too bad, I can make those two.

"Well, what if we just outlaw gunpowder?" I can make that too, but probably wouldn't bother as I have another formulation using just three common chemicals that makes a right nice propellent. Stronger than black-powder,

Wasn't there a Mod or something who was in charge of keeping a lid on the over expression of 5cat's Id in submissions at one time or another?

Can we get that guy/gal back through some kind of mass movement of pictures on milk cartons and petitions and planes writing giant SOSes in the sky? Because I'm starting to wonder...

Seems to me he is holding a hand gun. Anyone propose getting rid of handguns? No? OK then, EXCELLENT point!

Someone kills someone every day. Getting rid of guns won't ever change that. However, this post will make sense when someone kills 20 kindergarteners with a baseball bat.

Since we are on the subject of this link:
http://tinyurl.com/cufdy6m

Can any gun person tell me what the hell the 1,684 murders by "Other guns or type not stated" are attributed to since rifles, hand guns, and shot guns are stated?

"No, it makes perfect sense because in the USA more people are murdered with hammers and clubs of some form than with rifles."

No dips.hit. That is not true. Here is the link:
http://tinyurl.com/cufdy6m
Instead of suckling off the right wing bulls.hit teat try researching for yourself.

The category is NOT "hammers and clubs" it is "Blunt objects (clubs, hammers, etc.)" The etc is kinda f.ucking important here. It includes ALL blunt objects. So, baseball bats, cro-bars, pipes, rocks, sticks, ETC. Get it?

Also, let me repeat this for the 100th time. I don't care if one person kills one person. You can never stop that. I care if one person kills 26 people. I'm pretty f.ucking sure that isn't going to happen with a hammer.

"it's "per capita" that is important."

Jesus. Do you really think that is all that is important? So by your rationale if some guy in a tiny town in Kansas kills his wife that tiny town is now more dangerous than Detroit because their per capita rate is higher? Come on. Context comes into play here don't you think?

If you go by JUST this list then the tiny country of Montserrat is 4 times as dangerous as the United States because ONE PERSON was murdered there in the entire year.

Eliminate all the tiny countries and what are you left with? A bunch of third world countries mostly in Africa and Central America. Oh, and Russia.

America should be proud of being safer than those countries?

I've said this before, for me, this is NOT about one person being able to kill one person. You will never stop that. This is about one person being able to kill dozens of people. Hence your comic is POINTLESS.
