apart from hunting, what is a gun meant to do, other than kill people?
you pro-gun people can deny all you want, but guns are a TOOL for KILLING people. period.
therefore that makes it dangerous.
and then you might say "second amendment bitch"
but people who say that obviously don't know anything about how these things SHOULD work. the constitution was signed ******* over 200 years ago. there is absolutely no way that everything is still relevant today. It's like saying a law made in the medieval times should still be in place today because thats history and heritage or some other ******** . they signed the constitution at a time where there was unrest and the government was just formed. nothing like today.

So are the javelin and the bow. Both of those were created as weapons to kill both animals and humans, but you aren't stopping the track-and-fielders from throwing their javelins or stopping America's Olympic archery team from practicing with their bows... That said, AR-15's are a widely used sports rifle. People shoot for FUN. At TARGETS. There are a HUGE number of gun-based sporting events; shooting is a SPORT. Just like chucking a javelin or letting loose some arrows... People like you are so ******* retarded, it's amazing.

What about martial arts and wrestling? I think people should stop practicing those sports because they encourage kicking the **** out of their fellow man (and in some cases killing them); we should only allow people to practice nice sports. I propose we start a new sport based around hugging.

And the second amendment was designed and implemented so that people could (a) overthrow the government (be on level terms with the military) if the people decided that needed to happen and (b) help defend the country if necessary; the second amendment was actually a key factor in deterring the Japanese from invading the Continental US during WWII, as the vast number of armed civilians would have made victory on land nearly, if not totally, impossible.

Gun should be regulated better, tracked better; background checks are important. But ANY American (that has a clear record and a saftey course in dealing with the weapon class) should be able to purcase any weapon, wether it is a muzzleloader or a fully automatic assault weapon. Guns don't kill, unstable people with guns kill (and soldiers, but that's combat).

I mean. i like to shoot at targets every now and again. There are also people who do it for sporting events. Also, guns arent the only dangerous things in the world. There are bows, cars, knives, lamps, bricks, swords, plastic bags, nails, 2x4's, water, hammers, pickaxes. i think you see where im going with this. most of them only have a few uses and can be a tool for killing people.

mind you, guns were invented with killing people as the primary objective.
Bows were made for hunting
cars were made for travel
knives were tools to make life easier
lamps are for lighting, which is necessary in life
bricks are the foundation of housing
swords, yes killing, but it has been since replaced by guns, since guns kill people more efficienty.
plastic bags were designed to hold stuff, not to kill people.
the point is, these tools were designed as such. to be tools. guns were designed for killing.

Target shooting and self defense. The right to defend yourself is no less relevant now than it was 200 years ago.
User avatar #257 to #249 - blahness (01/06/2013) [-]
the constitution wasn't signed with self defense in mind
think about it. who in their right minds would say : "Hey, lets let the people defend themselves from guns, by giving everyone guns!"

I think it absolutely WAS signed with self-defense in mind.

The constitution was signed with the idea that the people of the U.S. could defend themselves against their own government if it ever came to that. As the military becomes more advanced and evolve so do the weapons that the people have. This is a very watered down explanation.
#266 to #257 - fefe (01/06/2013) [-]
You make it sound like criminals can still not acquire guns, if people didn't have guns to defend themselves, how would people with them be stopped?
User avatar #245 to #223 - roliga (01/06/2013) [-]
Tool for killing people? How about a tool for home defense?
#227 to #223 - fefe (01/06/2013) [-]
So what do you think we should do? Take away all of the guns?
User avatar #232 to #227 - blahness (01/06/2013) [-]
lol, as if gun control could do anything in the U.S. now
its way too late for that.
#236 to #232 - fefe (01/06/2013) [-]
And even if you were to get rid of guns, people would still resort to knives.
User avatar #243 to #236 - Ehwhat ONLINE (01/06/2013) [-]
Let's take away the people and let the guns and knifes live in peace.

Made me laugh, so I did math for you. :)

melee range
much less of a threat

In china, some guy went on a slashing spree in a school and killed 27 kids...
#252 to #247 - miaandvinny (01/06/2013) [-]
How many of thsoe kids died?
User avatar #291 to #252 - thecurlysage (01/06/2013) [-]
"killed 27 kids..." i'll let you figure out the rest
#295 to #291 - miaandvinny (01/06/2013) [-]
If they were talking about the recent one, I don't believe even 1 of those kids died.
User avatar #248 to #247 - blahness (01/06/2013) [-]
actually, none of those kids died.
and knives at least gives the possibility of actually running away. with guns that chance is so much smaller
User avatar #354 to #248 - thenukecity (01/06/2013) [-]
Implying it is impossible to throw a knife or for a person to run faster than you.
#921 to #354 - miaandvinny (01/07/2013) [-]
But you would have more of a chance. Bullets tend to be more accurate and are much faster.
User avatar #932 to #921 - thenukecity (01/08/2013) [-]
Well there is that.
