Have An Opinion?
A lot of people seem to have a false sense about guns. The gun did not shoot the person, the one who pulled the trigger did, and when it comes down to gun laws i kind of disagree with some of them. We have the right to bear arms. Also one more thing, you are less likely to be attacked if they know you have a gun, and even if you are attacked you still have some means of defense. These school shootings, they blame it on the guns and not having enough gun laws, saying we need to restrict guns. But did these shooters even get these guns legally in the first place? although you can buy guns in walmart, if a has illegal intentions it won't stop them from obtaining a weapon illegally with or without gun laws, all these gun laws are leaving us without defense. Of course im not saying "EVERYONE" should have a gun, im saying everyone who has a sense of guns should be allowed to bear arms. Im not handing a gun to a baby of course.
I wouldn't advise getting them at walmart as well... you know the meme that is sports products from walmart🤣
Your gun is small and easy for psychos to conceal and it has large magazines that make it easier for psychos to kill more people before they get stopped. I know as much about guns as you do probably and I've been around them and shot them my whole life. The problem isn't guns, its certain types of guns that make mass shootings easier to do. Combine that with a country as fucked up as america that doesn't seek out and care for the mentally ill, and its no wonder you're in the position of having mass shootings every week.
You are mostly correct. The vast majority of gun banners don't know the difference between a magazine and a clip, think rifles are used to kill thousands of people, and that the murder rate today is worse than it has ever been.There are a few gun banners who do know something about guns. Dianne Feinstein for one. She used to have a concealed carry permit when she lived in San Francisco, when the ordinary citizen could not. She gave up her permit and got an armed guard. These people who do know something about guns, but wish to ban them anyway, invariably think they are better than the citizenry in that they are entitled to protection, but the rest of us are not.
With that, it's easy to put those pieces together. If they are so afraid of citizens being armed and want to disarm them, they obviously have bad plans for those citizens. It's happened time and time again, a tyrannical governments first step is to disarm the people before committing a horrible act, such as genocide.
I'm an ex military, and I'm against guns, I don't think civilians should hold guns, the holding of firearms should be only by security personnel. I understand the ideology of guns are the perfect form of freedom b"you can defend yourself from threats" but in 2019 it's not relevant as it was 150 years ago
Being in the military doesn't mean you've educated yourself at all on guns
@rangers true, but I saw in responsible people with guns, and letting people have guns with almost no background check is dumb
They do have background checks in place, have you bought a gun before?
I'm not an American, this I think also in the US there should be more regulation on guns, I've been to the US a few times and I saw how easy it is to pass these Background checks. its a joke
Explain to me how the background checks work. I've purchased guns so I know, let's see if you do. And also, far more lives are saved by guns than taken.
@Rangers you must be a different kind of stupid son. If the guy was in the military then clearly he has experience much more experience with firearm use than you
Rob171977 he is right in one thing, I was mostly a drill Sargen in basic training and some soldiers shouldn't be holding rifles, mostly they wouldn't in the end because we took em off, I know firearms mostly because I thought gun safety in military exercise
@Z3ID366 As is the case with "friendly fire"
My point is that when it comes to firearm statistics, you don't know anything about them because if you did, you'd know 500,000-3,000,000 lives are saved every year in the united states by civilians with guns whereas only 30,000 innocent lives are lost each year.
Can you live with that on your conscience or look at yourself in the mirror each day knowing you took a life whether it be human or animal. Human I wouldn't lose sleep over in fact the world would be better off with fewer humans in it but a defenseless animal I just couldnt
And just for the record I own 6 of them in my closet 2 of them are burrettas first one I owned at 19 and was taught how to fire it using the sights on the gun and able to shoot a target at 500 feet away. Accounting for wind variance and distance from the target are all taken into effect before pulling the trigger
I never owned a Smith & Wesson but my burrettas have a 8 or 12 magazine clip I'm not going to check since I'm to lazy to. AR57's and other semi automatics are much more difficult to use as the weight of the gun is more. And when holding a shotgun of any kind you NEVER rest the end of the gun against your shoulder always under it as the backfire from the shotgun and force of it can dislocate separate or dislodge your shoulder
You spelled it wrong twice by the way. And I wouldn't kill someone unless they were trying to kill me and they didn't come to reality after a couple warning shots. I do hunt occasionally and it doesn't bother me much, it's part of nature and there's something spiritual about eating food that you put on the table yourself and got in just about the most natural way possible.
I wouldn't say the "only" people. But yea, it's quite obvious that the large majority of anti-gun people don't know anything about guns. Furthermore, they refuse to listen to people who do know about them.
There are more than enough gun laws on the books - we just need to have judges with the cojones to enforce them and not just give 10 hours of community service!Now, pardon me while I throw out all my spoons and forks since they obviously are tyring to make me gain weight!
Guns are inanimate objects, just like a bottle of booze or a needle full of crack. It is the user who is to fear, not the object in their hand.
People who don't like guns don't really want to be shot be the general populace, which is mostly composed of fucking nutters. That simple really.
I might accept your argument in part, but in response ask if you seriously think I need a qualification to know what the purpose of a gun is.
They save far more innocent lives than they take
I own a gun, and have been around guns all my life. But I also want reasonable gun laws, that keep guns from criminals, and keep people from having large magazines.
Without cheating, what's the definition of an assault rifle? If you can't do it, you have no business talking about guns until you're educated on them.
Ranger: Who died and made you king? To decide who could, and could not, talk about guns. You may have forgotten, but the first amendment was written before the second amendment.
You just failed the test, go do some research and learn about guns, start herehttps://americangunfacts.com/
Ranger: I didn't fail a test, I didn't take any fool test conjured up by you. Once again. The first amendment came before the second amendment. I guess gun nuts get this backwards.
No, I said you need to educate yourself on guns, until you do, you have no credibility on the matter.
@ranger quit spamming the same bullshit link you idiot.
@Sacrilege_is_hawt Typical liberal, makes false claim, can't back it up, real statistics are shown disproving their claim, they get mad and throw a tantrum. Child
Only paranoid, mentally ill people are in favor of guns.Change my mind?
That is true. I have taken anti-gunners shooting and some changed their minds and now own.
I totally agree, if you dont know about something how can you possibly have an opinion on it?
I understand guns in my opinion reasonably well and I don't think they are nessesary
@MisterAnon69 because why do we need them being honest to anyone outside of law enforcement and military they are almost entirely toys I haven't met many large gun owners who use it purely for defence its mostly just taken out now and again and fired pointlessly
I shoot people in video games. But I don't own a gun myself. I don't want, nor need one
I disagree, communist intellectuals know all about guns and they are very much in favor of taking yours from you.
That's because they don't want citizens to be able to resist them, but I will not comply, if they want my guns, they can come and take them over my dead body.
People fear most what they don't understand.
You are right
