Luckily, you are in the minority. What you think is irrelevent. It has not basis on other's rights.

Again with the rogue government fantasy?. I ask again.. exactly who do you think you'll be fighting if your 'gummerment' decides to turn on it's own people? zombies? robots? as @taylor stone already pointed out the US military is made up of US citizens, and I think it's highly unlikely that even the most gung-ho marine would willingly turn a rifle on his own friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, @taylor stone then went on a rant about history's oppressive governments. as much as you'd like to disagree, the US is not a facist state run by it's military (Nazi Germany), It's not a single-party socialist state(Communist Russia,Nth Korea) It is a modern western democracy, with checks and balances. It's not perfect, but there's an ocean of 'what-if's to be crossed before Times square becomes Tienanmen square. It's a fantasy that tries to justify owning military-style weapons, and it's not at all relevant to the issue at hand; The prevention of mass shootings.

He lost me when he said that "right to bear arms" makes even a background check unconstitutional. Bull. F'ing. S**t.

Jesus, did not one single gun advocate ever take a history class or read the constitution or look at the context of the people and time when it was written? It's a shame we can't put the original Constitutional Congress in the same room with this guy and watch how fast they clarify what they meant ...

The Chechens fighting were members of the Chechen army. You know, that whole "well regulated militia" thing....


Chechnya did not have any recognized standing army at the time. In fact their efforts were complemented by the Mujahideen. Hardly what anyone would call "a well regulated militia".

"[m]ore than 40,000 soldiers from the (p.1141)Russian army ... have quickly been humbled by a few thousand urban guerrillas who mostly live at home, wear jeans, use castoff weapons and have almost no coherent battle plans or organization."

"Yes, but the point was an armed populace CAN serve as a meaningful check against a state that does have modern well-equipped professional army."

No. I don't think you made that point. The Checens fighting were not random gun owning citizens. Russia has much stricter gun laws than the US does. The Chechens fighting were members of the Chechen army. You know, that whole "well regulated militia" thing....

You guys always act like we can't stop these shootings no matter what, so we shouldn't even try.


We are very certain it is an unreachable goal, there's no feasible way to measure how the damage has been "lessened" either. Fortunately, incidents like these aren't becoming more frequent. School manages to be the safest place for a child any time of day, the Sandy Hook children were ultimately unlucky.

"Nevermind the Chechnyans took on their own govt, moving along."

You are talking about an area with its own government and army that views itself as an independent state under the rule of another country that has been warring and fighting for freedom for centuries.

This is not Russia.

"Hanguns kill more peopl than "assualt weapons""

You are absolutely right. Hand guns kill more people. However I will repeat this for the 300th time. MOST gun murders are one person intentionally killing another specific person. Those crimes are virtually unpreventable and do not in any way affect or concern me or my family. This is not about MOST gun crime. This is about trying to lessen mass shootings and innocent bystanders.

If ONE guy trying to get an AR-15 to shoot up a school can't because of a new gun law then it is worth all of you feeling like your rights are being infringed. Hell, even if it takes him an extra week to find one it is worth it. That is one more week his victims had to spend with their families.

You guys always act like we can't stop these shootings no matter what, so we shouldn't even try. Lessening them would be a good step.

"Ya cause an AR-15 isn't used in competitive shooting ever."

If someone would like to buy and own an AR 15 or even an AK-47 or anything else they should be allowed to buy it, own it, and use it as long as it never leaves the registered shooting facility where it is kept. Like safety deposit boxes at the bank. I think that is perfectly reasonable.

Because these people want to accrue massive amounts of military grade weaponry without the government noticing they fight any legislation that may help prevent mass shootings.


Ya cause an AR-15 isn't used in competitive shooting ever. Hanguns kill more peopl than "assualt weapons" would that mean they should also be classifed as one.

"Technology has also made the self-protection by fire-arms more readily available to people. This is a good thing."

You guys always throw that out. I own a handgun for personal / home protection. I am in no way against that. Nobody I know is against that.

The issue of this video is about high capacity rounds, assault weapons, and registration. None of the things the president has proposed and this video argues against would in any way keep an individual from being able to protect themselves.

This debate IS NOT about personal protection.

This debate is about rednecks wanting to have full blown arsenals because they think they can fight the government if they need to which is so patently absurd it shouldn't be allowed in the conversation.

Because these people want to accrue massive amounts of military grade weaponry without the government noticing they fight any legislation that may help prevent mass shootings.

I could also mention the idiocy of a Canadian telling me to "stay the drat out of the rest of the worlds (sic) politics" when we're discussing US gun control. But I won't.

Maybe look again, @greenbasterd. Try an official webpage like the one I took this data from, just one snap shot from 1991-2001. An official website may be better, say, the Australian Institute of Criminology? Or you can stick with your wonderfully accurate results that Google searches spit up without questioning the source.

In 1996, a long upwards trend of firearm deaths peaked and then declined. This webpage has two very clear graphs showing the peak in 1996 and then the clear decline. This is one example only, using official data, which even you could find if you tried hard enough. I could find more.

Good luck! I'm tired of going on any more; as an earlier poster said, it's exactly like hitting my head against a brick wall.

Stopped watching after he said "inanimate object" and talked about getting frisked at the senate. That's really all that needs to be said.

1. Guns are objects, they cannot kill people. 2. Why do our senators enjoy such high security while our children have a "gun free zone" sign to protect them?

@ gary8162 You should really stop using Godfatherpolitics.com to word your arguments.

Your own ABC has reported it more accurately and truthfully here http://abcnews.go.com /International/australia-model- successful-gun-control-laws/ story?id=18007055

Only as fool cannot see through the propaganda of the pro-gun lobby on this, lies already denounced on numerous internet 'hoax' websites such as Snopes (http://www.snopes.com/ crime/statistics/ausguns.asp)

While your at it, check out these crazies running your country. http://www.motherjones.com/ politics/2013/01/ craziest-anti-obama-gun-reactions

Thankfully, I will never have to live next to nutters who believe that if more people have access to guns, gun crimes will somehow become LESS likely.

HolyGod-"Do you get the difference between good and bad?"

So the Bill of Rights can be limited to a time-period reference if they are perceived as 'bad', but not limited to a time-period reference if they are perceived as 'good'.

Are YOU to be the arbiter of what is 'good' and what is 'bad'?

See, technology has also made the spread of lies and disinformation faster and more ubiquitous. This is a bad thing.

Technology has also made the self-protection by fire-arms more readily available to people. This is a good thing.

So, based on your own 'logic', you should be the first to give up your non-constitutional computer and send me a letter with your objections and arguments on parchment printed with a screw press. (and you cant send it via the United Postal Service, FedEx or any other such means that did not exist at the teim).

"Now I don't see hollow points said to being shot there."

What? You specifically mentioned .40 caliber rounds in your initial comment. The quote is specifically talking about .40 caliber rounds being fired in training? Training is not just target practice. Targets don't move. Maybe during training they want to keep the realism of what they will fire in the field. I don't know.

@markust123

Now I don't see hollow points said to being shot there. That's cause they cost more you target practice with soft point or FMJ doing it with hollow points would be pointless and a waste of money. So that would mean either the trainers have no idea what they're doin or are full of s**t pick one.
