@5Cats, It's nothing to do with your political views.

It's had to with the fact that every time you've commented to me on this thread you've literally misunderstood me each time. And you can't seem to separate fact from fiction.

This is a satire, if take what he says as literal then your an idiot.

You made claims that he's insulting ethnic people and that he's a liberal gun propaganda speaker. This is a satire not something to be viewed as truth.

Also as a side note. I'm surprised you disagree with is first point. Criminals do have guns and more importantly they have fully automatic ones. And for the record wives and children do die from guns in the house in greater numbers verses houses without guns. Those are facts.

Midknight-"You see a knife is used primarily in kitchen activities."

Just as I see a gun is used primarily in self-defense situations.

You see, you were arguing DESIGN. And a knive was originally designed was TO KILL. It also happens to be handy for other things...just like a gun. But YOUR logic deems you must divest yourself of any knife in your possesion.

Midknight-"Guns were not responsible, no but they could not have happened on such an extreme level if they were not in the picture."

Unfortunately, guns ARE in the picture. They EXIST, therefore they will always be in the picture.

What is your grand idea to eliminate guns and remove possibility that criminals (who, by definition, break laws) will get them?

I can manufacture a basic gun in my shop in a couple of days. It's not that difficult. How do you plan to stop that?

A person's responsibility keeps getting called in to the picture. The question is MeGrendal and 5Cats do you think by allowing some responsible people the ability to kill with the press of a trigger is worth the batman shootings for example?
Guns were not responsible, no but they could not have happened on such an extreme level if they were not in the picture.

Hope to hear from you both. It's nice to hear another side.

Unfortunately I have to disagree with you MeGrendal. You see a knife is used primarily in kitchen activities.

A gun's only purpose, is yes propelling a projectile through the air, but why does it do that? The answer is to kill. Unless you are going to tell me you use it to flick the light switch on and off, the guns only use is to kill and defend and by defending killing, let us not deny that fact.

To 5Cats - thank you it's good to be here. I understand your point about it being another inanimate object, but still I have to press that it is designed to kill no matter how you dress it up. Therefore from this I can never personally glorify a design that solely exists to kill.
You used an example of never using it, which I can completely seeing happening. But you misunderstand that this is ENTIRELY not the point. The point is the gun is only a threat and can only be used in self defence because it is designed to kill and killing is nothing to be glorified or respe

Midknight-"argument is that funs are designed to kill not defend. It is their only purpose. I can never support an instrument that's only purpose is to kill."

Then throw away all of your knives, as they were designed for the only purpose to kill.

Your biases aside, a gun is designed for the sole purpose of propelling a projectile in the direction it is pointed in as fast and accurate way as possible given the limitation of that particular device.

What one is using that threat of the projectile is totally up to the person in control of the gun. Be it to harm someone or to convince them to perform, or not perform, a certain act.

@MidKnight: I'm glad you "de-lurked" & welcome to IAB!

A gun is just a tool, like any other inanimate object. It is "designed" to throw something at high velocity where it's aimed at. Like a bow & arrow, or a crossbow.

WHAT it gets used for is entirely up to the human holding it. Exactly the same as a knife, pack of matches or baseball bat.

If an intruder enters your home? And you show him a gun? He'll most likely run away. THAT is called "self defense" ok? It's perfectly legitimate, there's 100s of reports of people defending themselves and NOT SHOOTING their gun even!

I'm concerned that each side is making such rash assumptions on each others logic as if they know what it is, said with resentment.

Surely if there is a different opinion to yours you seek to understand it? Not condemn it and force into the ground with anger. Let's listen to each other.

The hole problem with 5Cats' argument is that funs are designed to kill not defend. It is their only purpose.
I can never support an instrument that's only purpose is to kill.
Even to defend with a gun it is through the threat of killing.

"...it's a fact same as me saying the same about likely hood of an accidental gun shooting in a home verses one without a gun in the home."

And he claims -I- misunderstand HIM?

Would someone do the honor of explaining what "sarcasm" means to @peaking? thx.

For the record: Accidental Falls is the 4th leading cause of -Accidental- death in the USA... all sorts of falls. Off the roof, in the bathtub, down the stairs...

Wiki Says: 5Cats is correct!
Oh, what's the LOWEST cause? Waaaay down at the bottom of the graph?

"Accidental gun deaths? apx 200 It barely registers as a "cause"."

I'm certain the family members who lost someone will agree with this insensitive view of concern verses percentage.


"People with stairs in their house are more likely to die while falling down the stairs than people with NO stairs in their house!
True fact that is! "

Exactly!!! Now check this out---by writing that I don't think you're anti-stairs, it's a fact same as me saying the same about likely hood of an accidental gun shooting in a home verses one without a gun in the home.

As for "accidental gun deaths":

Times a gun is used in crimes in the USA: apx 70,000
Times a gun is used to defend/prevent a crime: apx 2,100,000
Accidental gun deaths? apx 200 It barely registers as a "cause".

Wiki Says a LOT about this sort of thing

@peaking: People with stairs in their house are more likely to die while falling down the stairs than people with NO stairs in their house!
True fact that is!

It doesn't MATTER what Mr.Carrey's INTENTIONS are! It is we the viewers who get to decide, for ourselves, what it is he's saying. What message WE get. Also, didn't you see the part where he explicitly says (twitters) he's anti-gun? That's part of the package too.

If I wrote a "satirical comedy" about (lets say) beating homosexuals to death, and it offended people? You're darn right I'd catch hell for it!

Again I repeat myself: He has every right to say what he thinks! And I have every right to say how stupid he is. And you have every right to agree with him. Or not.
Agreed?

morons like you who do not understand

@peaking: What makes you think "I don't understand" this? That's a TYPICAL "liberal assumption" eh? Oh, the conservatives just aren't smart enough to grasp the subtle nuances of Carrey's satire... bullshiite!
I figured it out all on my own.
Parts of it are both good and humourous, BUT other parts are the opposite.

#6 He claims that there's no point owning guns because the criminals will always have more... liberal logic! Also that YOUR gun will kill you, your children AND your spouse. HOW is that not "anti-gun" mythology?

@Tinrac: Hee hee hee! It happens from time to time! Something rubs my fur the wrong way and I get all grumpy...

Funny or Die is Will Ferrel's site as far as I know, and I'm not sure, but I don't think the guests write the parts they play.

That's like ripping into the actors of SNL, Mad T.V. or In Living Color for what the writers do and producers allow. I can't stand these two, mainly her, but this dumbass is no better.
