I'm more likely to die from suicide
The main issue is that USA has gun ownership as a right. Attempting to impede that will quite literally start a civil war. Gun control will be very difficult to achieve.
@scr0at I don’t think it will. Call the KKK and other racist groups the terrorists that they are. Don’t allow terrorists to own guns. Limit the number of guns people and households can own. Make people get lisences to sell guns at gun shows There are SO many things that can be done! Over 80% of Americans support gun control.
If someone is a racist then they are an asshole, not a terrorist. To label them as terrorists and take away their constitutional rights is going to be pretty damn hard if not impossible. There is no gun show loophole. You can't limit the firearms a household has either - that's also against the constitutional right.It doesn't matter that 80% support gun control - whatever that is supposed to be - when there is not many effective ways of doing it that does not infringe on people's constitutional rights.
@scr0at A terrorist is someone who seeks to cause terror. Are the burning crosses and marches and murder just jokes? Something they do for fun? They’re *terrorists* and should be treated as such. The constitution says you have the right to bear arms. As in more than one. Two is more than one. Children had to watch other children die. Where are THEIR rights? I’m DONE with people dying because of one angry person. People can have a rifle for hunting and a side arm and that’s all they NEED
The burning crosses and marches are their perogative. Murder is illegal at which point they become incarcerated and incapable of legally owning a firearm.You definition of "two" firearms would have to be challenged in court. I strongly suspect it would lose, not to mention do absolutely nothing to stop these tragedies.I don't know why these people commit these crimes. I don't understand why people steal or sleep around either.
@scr0at they are not. They are *terrorism*. They’re part of a group that encourages them to murder. Also terrorism. You’re right. Let’s skip to no guns. Problem solved. They commit gun violence aBECAUSE THEY HAVE GUNS
They aren't considered terrorists no matter how many times you say it. Sorry.You feel free to skip to "no guns" for yourself but the millions of Americans that commit no crimes with their firearms won't be turning them in... and to try and force them will result in civil war.People do not commit violence because they have guns. They commit violence because they are mentally I'll and don't know better or they simply choose to. The tool used to commit the violence doesn't really matter, just ask the 80 people ran over in France.
@scr0at that’s what they are. It doesn’t matter if you consider them or not. That’s the great thing about facts. So the guy in Las Vegas would have been able to murder 58 people without guns? The kid would have been able to murder 17 people without a gun?
How is this a fact? Because you say it's so? Yes, hundreds of thousands died in Rwanda with machetes. Vehicles have killed the same numbers when used as killing tools, although generally firearms make it easier for the uninventive.
@scr0at hmm. Who do we know in this country who purposely runs over people. That’s right! Racist terrorists!
@scr0at oh so now Muslims running people over are terrorists but white boys aren't. Got it.
You have one piece of "evidence" that somehow proves some sort of trend?There is no trend.I'm still waiting for you to prove your "fact" that the KKK is a terrorist group. So far I've been unable to find the KKK on any list provided by the USA.
@scr0at just because our racist country won’t call them what they are doesn’t change what they are. Terrorists. Oh. So the white supremisist nazi didn’t run over people in Charlottesville?
Oh so just because you decide they are terrorists they are now in fact terrorists...This is exactly why the Constitution was enacted, to stop people like you from arbitrarily infringing on their rights because they have a different opinion from you.Yes, a person who self identifies as some sort of white supremacist group did run some people over. Your point?
@scr0at they meet the criteria for terrorists. They are terrorists If people wanted to keep their guns they shouldn’t be going on murder sprees~terrorism~
Yeah... no they don't, or they would be on the domestic terrorist list. Again, I know this is difficult for you but just because you say "FACT!" does not even make it remotely true.The KKK is an ideology. It has some merit but overall it's just too misled to be able to take it seriously.
By your definition Black Lives Matter is a terrorist group because after a BLM rally Micah Johnson killed 5 and injured 9 police officers. The heads of the BLM movement also say very racist things about white people.
@scr0at like I said ~racism~Ohhh so you’re into terrorism too and that’s why you don’t want to admit what it is. Mystery solved. And you’re a racist too. Got it. Sorry. I don’t allow your... caliber of individuals on my threads.

I agree. We need more guns to stop these things from happening.
Not enough, everyone needs bazookas!
Another excellent idea. RPGs are common in Somalia.
Because the shooter got jailed instead of exonerated?
