"People that are against gun control have obviously never been to a country where guns are banned..."

You mean like here?

"I believe the point is that blades, like stones, are much less effective at killing..... The death counts aren't even comparable."

I guess you never heard of the Rwandan Genocide.

Between 500,000 and 1,000,000 people were slaughtered with machetes. The government imported them from China because they were cheaper than guns yet shockingly effective.

It was funny hearing Eleanor Clift complaining about how gun nuts are "hiding behind the constitution". Weren't the poor souls in Gitmo doing the same thing during the Bush admin? Wasn't she trying to hide while Bush was overseeing unconstitutional wiretapping?

Just because you CAN have a gun dosen't mean you need one.

Better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have it.

That chick in gerrys post....
I don't know her or anything about her, but still I feel a burning hatred for her (or anyone with dreadlocks).

Aside from the excellent point he made about tyranny. Ice T has also said this; "A Firearm is your LAST defense against Tyranny"

I would also like to add that the first responders in my area (hampton roads) on average take 8 minutes to get there. Being a gun owner is not just a right, but a responsibility. When I carry, I'm the first responder; the only difference is, you didn't have to call me, I was already there.

...and I agree that anyone who is irresponsible enough to leave a gun sitting around where it can easily be stolen shouldn't have one in the first place.

When the federal gov't steps in, that's when the crazy gun-toting rednecks come out of their compounds and start talking about another civil war. If their state tells them they have to pass a background check they're fine with it, if the feds say "Maybe we should put in some universal regulations to keep everyone on the same page" then all hell breaks loose.

I just hate the fact that nowadays, anyone who says guns shouldn't be banned completely is automatically labelled a gun-nut and thrown into that category with the crazy rednecks. I'm a USMC veteran so guns/rifles were a big part of those 8 years, I like to hunt, I like to shoot at targets with friends and I'm safety conscious, that doesn't make me a "gun-nut" though!

Outsiders can't see the majority of murders with guns are done with cheap ILLEGAL pistols so they push with more laws which helps nothing. They can't even enforce laws in place so how would this stop a psychopath? Leftists have been pusing this BS for a long time there just looking for something to push it with.

@turdburglar - I know you're not in favor of all out bans, like some people are. I'm just trying to clarify that there are, in fact, regulations like background checks already in place. Sure, with a clean record you're in and out of the store in 10 to 20 minutes, rifle in hand. It seems like when other people see that they interpret it as anyone can just walk in and do the same regardless of their criminal history which is not the case.

@madduck - That's why it is such a problem because for the most part each state dictates their own laws regarding guns. The feds only step in when we're talking about submachine guns, sawed off shotguns, grenades, silencers, etc, as per the National Firearms Act and the Gun Control Ac

Thank You- for those who took the trouble to answer without just being rude. Obviously some here have trouble with that concept. So- why does the control vary so much- surely It would be sensible to standardise it? what happens if your gun gets stolen- as did this woman- but she did not spot it for a while ( personally I think that it so feckin irresponsible and careless she should be made to eat the damn thing.but) It seems you have some control- but so variable and not effective in a meaningful way?

Whodat - Don't get me wrong, I am definatly NOT in favor of a gun ban. I was pointing out that a legal citizen with a clean record can simply walk into a shop and have a gun in just minutes...which is the way it should be. I have a CPL which means I can also walk out of the shop with a pistol (after background check). Permanent records are not kept by Govt. on rifle purchases. They are kept on pistol sales, which hasn't prevented pistols from being used in murder much more often than rifles. When pistols (or rifles) are sold by private party's (either at gun shows or just by friends) there is no paper work required.
Gun bans will not work. Neither will mandatory reregistration. There are HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of guns in America already, with almost no way of tracking where they are, or who has them. My point on this whole gun control argument is not whether there should or should not be bans or more regulation, but simply that it is not possible. Reality.

Wundt- you are correct; However in the past, the nuts, kooks, pedophiles, psychopaths and all the other segments that make up the detritus of Humanity, were few in number, as the total population was smaller. Now, we're crowding ourselves out of space and resources so it just seems worse.
Perhaps we need to remove warning labels along with other 'let-the-stupid-die' measures to bring our numbers back down to a manageable level.

Exactly, and guess where background checks came from? They came from gun control laws & regulations. So to say that there is no control and anyone can just walk in and buy one would be a false statement.

Really, I am surprised that noone is man or woman enough to just say "I don't want daddy to take my toys away.." about the gun control topic.
7 years of military service and I love guns, main weapon for several years was GPMGs and LMGs. Still I think it is really a bad idea to give the twitchy finger average joe access to these dangerous weapons. Some people here talk about arming themselves if their government gets aggressive, really? Guys, these are the kind of people you shouldn't arm!

I think we should all take a breather.
Try to remember that, despite the hype in what laughingly passes for "news services", you are statistically safer now than at almost any other time in history.

I am tired of this claim that today's society is somehow 'decayed'. It isn't. It is different, but the idea that somehow everything was GREAT in the past is bull.

Whodat - Yes, there is a background check involved.
I bought a Marlin model 60 just a couple days ago. I was in and out of the gun shop in LESS than 15 min. I will give the rifle to my nephew for his 18th birthday next week. I won't have to file ANY paperwork or inform anyone in the process.

@Turdburglar: Haha yeah, my girlfriend works at Walmart and they've been sold out of all their ammo for weeks now. She overheard a conversation between two kooks complaining about how there wasn't any ammo and that it must be someone trying to control who gets ammo. No you f*cking idiot, you were just too slow to ride the crazy train and the other rednecks just got to it all before you.

What I would do if I was running that meeting is have all the speakers who want to remove all guns stand on one side and the people who think they they need to arm themselves against the government stand on the other side. Then I would have both groups escorted from the building so a rational conversation could be had.

@turdburglar - I'm pleased to that you are mistaken about that. Dealers in Washington State are still required to perform a background check before they hand that rifle to you. That's means you can't just walk in, buy one, and walk out. If you have a clean record, like I do, the NICS check goes through quick, but it still has to be done.
