Considering the average IQ of people all over the world, I don't think any country has a mental health problem. What we cave is a problem with people telling us what to blame. Stupid people do stupid **** no matter what, but whether it's the fault of guns, video games, or cats, is all based on what you see pointed to most. People are smarter than we give them credit for. It's just easier to see the idiots.

I always liked the logic behind making guns illegal, because you really just don't want criminals to have guns, but if you make guns illegal the only people giving their guns up are law abiding citizens, thus creating a country where the only people who have guns are criminals. By fighting for anti-gun laws, you're effectively working against what you want to happen, and that is just hilarious to me.

He actually said cutting weight is cheating.

Completely different thing, and most probably agree with him to some extent.

America doesn't have a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem, it's a country with a normal amount of people with mental health problems except they have more access to guns.

On the topic of banning guns, here's a thought:
Currently, with guns being legal, a cop walks down the street and sees an untold number of guns.
Hard to tell the crims from the honest people.
NOW: If guns are illegal, the same cop walks down the street, and can identify trouble makers (i.e. the crims that disobey said gun laws) by their guns, and potentially arrest them before the next mass shooting/liquor store robbery.
And yes, I know it's not going to stop shootings because concealed weapons are hard to find (hence the term "concelaed"), but the idea is that it would make it just that little but easier to spot would be gunmen.
Just my 2c worth. I'll shut up now.

But I'll bite anyways to tell you how wrong you are. If weapons were to be banned, yeah it would be easier for cops to spot the criminals. But let's check where all the mass shootings in the past 6 years have occurred. Oh that's right, all in gun-free zones. Meaning that those walking into the area with the guns were breaking the law, now imagine that on a national scale. It would be madness. And let's look at history, The prohibition tried to tell people that they can't drink, that failed and created organized crime, The current drug laws are now considered failures in the majority of states and encourages organized crime. So tell me how banning guns wouldn't do the same.

The logic that you could possibly somehow make guns illegal in the US is something that I think would be ridiculously difficult and a horrible disaster, if not impossible and something that would mark you as a huge target.

89% of the US population has guns. Freaking 89 out of 100. Some of those owners are democrats, and even liberals. Do you think, in any realistic scenario, the attempt to take those guns would not end in death, rebellion, and violence of any sort? Do you think any police officer would dare try and flush a neighborhood where there are more guns than people?

Don't believe me? Well, look just to the south of the border. It's practically impossible to legally get a gun in Mexico, yet their gun related death rate is currently HIGHER on average. Blame it on the Cartels then? Alright, but who's their biggest and most valuable customer? If they can establish a huge trade route through the heart of the country up to Canada, you're pretty sure that the supply of illegal weaponry isn't going to cease. Even if drugs are their main export, weapons provide security for their product.

Even that senator got arrested because he was banning legal guns just so the illegal gun trade would be boosted, and he'd get a share of the profits.

I don't think that at any point in the recent future you'd be able to put an effective wholesale ban on guns. Not at least without severe and very undesirable consequences that would endanger millions of lives. And while you can claim you don't have gun violence in your country, your country probably has significantly different circumstances and you probably are ignoring other data on violent crime rates, such as general mugging and stabbings. When someone wants someone dead, they'll do it. Whether it be through bullet, knife, or club.

So I'm pretty sure you try to take their guns, well, I wouldn't want to be you because you'll have a huge bullseye on your back, and on any law enforcement that tries to do so.

"Gun problem".
Most guns used in the US to commit crime are purchased illegally via the black market.
Most of those crimes are committed by blacks, up to like 90% of them.

As for the security, it's not all bad. If you look at it this way, not another attack like 9/11 has happened. It's just more pseudo-anarchist and libertarian whining.
User avatar #120 - languagexplain (06/09/2014) [-]
This is right. The problem isn't that guns are legal, the problem is that just about everyone seems to think they NEED guns.

well banning guns aint gonna do **** history tells me that making something illegal doesnt make it impossible to acquire prohibition and making alcohol illegal did **** and mental health can only be helped if people are seeking help or are around enough people to show that they have a problem. this kinda stuff happens at random and i cant think of a solution to limiting the occurrence of random shootings. what do?
