That is a stupid fucking opinion if you ask me. If you think that mass shootings are normal, then your mother should have probably sent you to high school to get shot or something. The thing is, you act like a land of liberty, the number one... You are not number one anymore. You need to do something with the guns, every fucking hillbilie has his Pew Pew and you say, "ItS oK BeCaUsE fLu KiLlEd MoRe!" Look, Im glad that this is not my problem, and i know you can't do anything with it, but the fact that you shoot each other at hospitals and schools is just fucking crazy. This probably won't do anything other than make you angry, so i dont really know why i write this here, anyway if you want to explain to me, why shooting each other is actualy beneficial, than go on, i will wait. Have a nice day. YeeeeHawwwww!
@Mitinal It's not okay that people shoot each other. But, the facts are that firearms do not kill as many people as others would have one believe.Your reply doesn't make me angry or anything else. You're entitled to your opinion.
That's a real problem, the idea that the police turn up and have no idea which person with a gun is the bad one. They maybe have a split second to make a call before someone gets shot and so they end up shooting the good guy.
@WindowLicker That's why open carry is a bad idea
U forgot military
@Fitnessaddict Upps yes indeed
You have a very optimistic view of the government. FYI CIA agents do not carry weapons most of the time while in the states unless exercising their right as citizens to take advantage of a concealed carry permit. Everyone else you listed is a law enforcement officer of some kind.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBlXRS_Npnobecause history. the government is not allowed to have more power than the people and can't infringe on our freedoms due to the bill of rights. the Declaration of Independence said it best "... That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of [our natural and god given rights], it is the Right of the people to alter or to abolish [the government], and to institute new government..."the side effect of allowing people to own guns is to inherit the responsibility of mass shootings. the side effect of taking guns away is limiting the power of your average every day citizen and giving power to the criminals. there are many more criminals willing to rob, murder and hold you hostage than there are people who dive off the deep end and shoot up a crowd. the media just makes it seem otherwise.
But all governments always will infringe freedom somehow, because they have to set rules to help people to coexist. I don't hurt anyone going naked on public places but it's not right, it's banned and I can even get to go to jail. On that moment government is setting limits. So allowing guns or not is just a limit a society choose to set or not, just like letting people go naked or not. I agree there are more people willing to rob or even murder, but you make it easier for those criminals to commit a crime if you let them to get a gun easily, and even if armed, civils wouldn't always know how to react properly to a criminal, meaning that a gun won't save them from a criminal with a gun in many cases, just would make the criminal more powerful.
i don't think you understand the difference in setting regulations and banning something. there are vast differences between these two. neither of which a criminal will followthe only thing keeping criminals from robbing civilians blind is the unknown of if the civilian is armed or not. After australia enforced its gun ban, removing guns from honest civilians, armed robberies shot through the roof and murder spiked among other things. they don't even border any crime laden nation, they're literally an island at sea! I don't know why anyone thinks removing guns will do any good, they always stop a step short of "criminals won't forfeit their guns" and think there'll be a happy and magical ending when its all said and done. Take guns away, your civilians are unprotected livestock, with criminals as glaring wolves.
@Blightly I haven't use the word "regulation" when I wrote about banning. Anyway banning is a way to set rules, you like it or not. Many governments ban many drugs to protect society. That's a rule that have been set in order to protect a society. About banning guns, many governments ban some kind of guns but allow others, so they are banning and regulating at the same time. They regulate the law through banning only some kinds of firearms. Now, there are countries where common civilians can only have hunting weapons. Many of those countries were weapon laws are strict has less crime rate and are on the top of safest countries, where USA isn't precisely. So, it's not necessary civilians wearing weapons to control criminals. Oh, and in those safer countries people are not unprotected because security forces do they work. So I don't know, maybe it's just cultural and you guys have more tendency to be criminals, but I doubt is that. I feel is more like guns are drugs for americans.
Cool. The US government banned drugs. Why do we still have a drug problem in the US? They can ban guns all they want, you're not going to get rid of gun related murder and crime by criminals (because criminals don't follow the law). Are you going to let some guy come into your house and murder your family while you wait for "security forces" to show up or are you going to pull your gun and protect your family. security forces are only as effective as the rate at which they respond, and to the amount that they are armed to combat the situation. I see "ban gun" enthusiasts as panderers to criminals and enablers to wrong doers.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-oNMHNrS-8
Never heard about strangers killing families, only in movies. It happens that often in USA, strangers entering houses and murdering a whole family? Intentional murderer rate in my country is pretty slow in comparison to USA... I can't imagine in my country a regular situation for a civilian where a gun would be necessary. Guns in my country would only increase criminality, as it would help regular thiefs to get more power and make them a problem instead of something easy to deal with. Maybe gun ban only works for other countries, and America is a special case. Who knows.

You have a constitutional right to bare arms.
@Poormanscomedian the 2nd doesn't mention LOADED arms
The people that disliked are the same people that care more about their guns than the people that are having their lives taken away from them by guns.
Let’s find a genie and wish away all the guns.
I know guns aren’t ever gonna go away. I’m just saying they shouldn’t have been sold to every Tom, dick and Harry in the first place.
Okay. Let’s ban guns. So we can be like the UK and Mexico.
You dont need to ban guns all together... You just need to hit that sweet spot where you dont give guns to fucking lunatics and you make rulers and checks for people who own them... Where i live its normal, and you have to have vault for a normal hand gun and if you want A category guns (Automatic rifles, modified so that they are not automatic... blah blah i can give you url to the page about it, whatever) you need a fucking vault room in your house and you need to visit doctors now and then to check on you.
@Mitinal everyone I have ever known that owns guns has a vault. So the problem isn’t guns, it’s gun safety? Can you anti gun people make up your minds?
@SwoleCook I dont fucking care, shoot yourself or something. Im glad i dont need to do anything with this issue. Im not pro neither anti gun. I just dont give a fuck. You Americans can nuke each other if you want. Im just saying that selling guns to everyone won't help. Maybe try selling tanks instead of guns?
@Mitinal calm down there buddy. Maybe it’s time you need a mental check up.
My point exactly, americans hand out guns like they’re fucking party bags then wonder why so many people die because on gun violence.
@SwoleCook No worries, not i would go shoot up a school or anything...
I surely hope not.
Right, and if they think they don't, they'll try commit crimes.. without guns this wouldn't happen
Weirdly enough, here in England we don't have half as many killings and we have access to machetes, can make explosives etc. So whats the reason for that? Is the US just full of fucktards or are you gonna admit guns are the problem?
Aww bless you, too uneducated to have a discussion so you try to insult a country you clearly know nothing about as a backup. No honey, you can only insult it if it's correct facts. Read MyTake and you'll see how wrong you are, LOL.
What? You think because I'm 21 I don't have parents who are in their 50s who have told me what the country was like? Don't try patronise me and belittle me. You lost this argument, go cry somewhere else instead of trying to insult me
Let's just hope non of your family get shot and killed, I'd be awfully sorry.
we border a nation hell bent on crime and drugs, which is just north of many other nations hell bent on crime and drugs. they make and import guns in these countries and ship them north. what good would taking guns away from law abiding citizens in the US do aside from making everyone vulnerable to criminals (who would obviously not forfeit their guns, and still have access to newly blackmarket only guns)
That's for your absolute 10/10 president to decide for you lot
@Blightly the US is a nation hell bent on violent crime. It exports arms to any killer nation like Saudi Arabia.
@jacquesvol the reason wars are fought in the middle east on behalf of russia, china and the us is because we can't fight wars between ourselves. these are proxy wars. i'm sure you understand that if any one of the leading powers of the world waged war on another leading power, the world would come to an end.
Sounds cool, doesent that work in Somalia already?
@Mitinal I dunno. Never been there..
@Mitinal Are you there currently?
Nope, but i was reading steam reviews and one guy was talking about it
@Mitinal Not sure what steam reviews are. I only know of "Steam" the engine for downloading games.
Oh, you are one of these, have a nice day then.
@Mitinal One of what?I don't know what steam reviews are. Sorry you got offended by that.
That's the best argument against it that I've heard. I hadn't thought of that.
Yeah, and bulletproof vest for every kid that goes to elementary. Also you can add M1 Abrams for every pregnant woman and a chopper for every elder in a town! FREEEEEEDOOOOOOOM
M-60s are outdated. The M-240 is the current model. Wish that policy had been in effect when I was born. Or that I was old enough to buy guns before the Hughes amendment went into effect.
@Sixgun77. I'm old school.
That's insane, I'd never kick you up the arse. You'd kill me. 🤣
@Sixgun77 not straight away.
I miss that show.
Such a minimal effort to limit guns by Obama is not really comparable to actual significant control over the availability of guns or a total ban.
@tartaarsaus We need laws that allow access to people's mental health , this would keep guns out of crazy peoples hands. I know people will cry personal privacy rights , but it has to be done
I'm not sure that anyone has. Reports of a police officer in critical condition, a wounded suspect and six or fewer wounded victims.
Oh okay I see, unpopular opinion but I think guns should be taken away
The beauty of freedom is that you're allowed to have unpopular opinions 😊
