Hear me out guys This is how I view gun control
Tl;dr ban guns = criminals only have them

Look at drugs and how so many people get them EASY. Look at how many people IN prison who are all for gun control because they do not go down to the local mom and pop shop and buy a ******* gun, they buy them illegally.
Plus if they know were not armed then they will have a ******* hay day on us.

Picture this, you are walking and carrying a weapon on your hip, is the person who is going to ass **** you and kill you going to attack you or the little hippy bitch with out a gun?

Yeah you got it right the hippy bitch. That is why gun control is dumb as **** and it all steams down to MAH FEELINZZZZZ YOUR RIGHTS END WHERE MAH FEELINZ BEGIN

And about these "assault rifles" They are semi automatic one pull of the trigger = one bullet down range..
Now look at this picture of a Semi auto hunting rifle, It is the same as these "Scary black rifles"

Anyone anywhere can train themselves to reload this rifle in the picture and do just as much if not more damage then a little 223 bullet, A 223 bullet is about 1 and a half inches long

Yet the rifle in the picture has a cartridge length of 2 and a half inches.

If you can train to reload fast like you would be doing with a AR 15 you can do the same damn thing with the rifle in the picture. Yet is called a hunting rifle.

Umm, I agree that gun control is silly and shouldn't be allowed, but here's a theory. Why don't we buy daggers or swords or things like that? After all, you can still **** up someone with a little pocket knife and it's legal. I dunno, that's just what I do.
#179 to #94 - qwermy (11/22/2012) [-]
Knives are not only messier, but it's a lot of work stabbing anything.

First imagine stabbing meat.
Now imagine that meat still being alive, like a deer you are hunting.
Now imagine that it is not in fact meat, but a person fighting back, and that they might also be armed.

Tl;Dr: guns are more efficient (allowing high-velocity metal to do the killing for you), and they keep you safely away from whatever you're trying to stop/kill/wound.

Not to mention "limit on the number of guns you can own"

At the most I can shoot two guns at a time but can't reload both of them at the same time. So does it really matter if I own a hundred or two guns? Not really.

Its just like when they banned switchblades and brass knuckles because gangs used them.

Maybe if they let them keep the melee they wouldn't have bought guns

Why can't people learn correct terminology? A round of ammunition is know as a cartridge, composed of the primer, case, powder, and bullet. The projectile is the only thing to be called a bullet.

of course if bullets suddenly cost 5,000 dollars, people will start buying them illegally, too.

Guns are used for hunting, protection, hobby shooting, and competitions (as in the Olympics)

Many of us live in the country where the police may never show up because they can't find the place so a gun used for both hunting and protection is needed.
30 minutes and your money, your life, and love ones could be gone.

Also we have state's rights in place to decide unlike your parliament that rules a small nation (land wise) Our nation is very vast and expansive . Continuously we respect states right to rule themselves.

The guns also serve a purpose if we were ever to lose a war we can retake our nation. The War Admiral of Japan himself knew invading the US is impossible due to the level of gun ownership.Then there is the fact we do not spread ideas as quickly as you Brits do, we hardly hear from other states. If our government becomes fascist and destroys the very foundation of the constitution we the people must return order. We can't spread ideas quite like you do but once a cry of war starts we band together.

What we lack in unity of ideas we make up for in brute hardware of guns. Our people are too stupid to see they are being played till the last second that is why we have guns.

If you want to argue maybe our people should just wake up. You can't argue with reality because we won't wake up if fascism arises.

Also unlike you mister island state we have neighbors. Too the south is Mexico a land over flowing with illegal trade of firearms. So making firearms illegal is ineffective at its objective, keeping guns out of crime.

Also guns make you more likely to get shot? Well owning a car makes you more likely to die in a car accident IF you are careless. And on that subject just because bad luck Brian shoots him self in the foot, or Scumbag Steve don't respect the tool and shoots himself because he was acting stupid , that means, I Good Guy Greg can't own a firearm even if I am a responsible individual?

Our firearms are some of the best in the world. Your move

I am not saying that the people are different , if you are going to commit a crime you find the nearest weapon, having guns doesn't seem to protect you , statistically a home with a gun in is in more danger than one without
User avatar #35 to #26 - tehrealfluttershy (11/21/2012) [-]
Most guns here are used primarily to hunt. And if not that, then self defense. But hey let's make guns illegal, because that way no one would break the law and use one to kill someone! Oh wait, if they plan on killing someone they wouldn't give a **** that guns are illegal so that idea is ******* stupid! Hooray logic!
User avatar #44 to #35 - PubLandlord (11/21/2012) [-]
What about in major cities and towns, there is nothing to hunt there ?

tDo you really think its beneficial having so many guns in the USA?
#66 to #44 - Ddubber (11/21/2012) [-]
Okay I have to reply to this before I continue reading any more of your nonsense.

First of all, there are LOTS to hunt in major cities and towns. I'm from Richmond, Vancouver (definitely not a small city) and all I have to do is drive 5 minutes down the road to the farm fields for a good duck hunt, or 15 minutes to the driving ranges for a good deer hunt, and there are SO MANY reason why to own more than one type of gun.

My dad owns about several if not more; A 3-shot pump-action 12 gauge shotgun mainly for the snow geese and canada geese, a single shot 12 gauge for a buck shot to hunt deer, a couple rifles (one for deer the other for parts mainly) a 4-10 shotgun for the duck hunting and grouse which is really fun and anything bigger is overkill, a .22 for other small game, etc...

You see not every gun is a handgun and meant for killing, you really do need to understand that a bit better.
User avatar #48 to #44 - tehrealfluttershy (11/21/2012) [-]
Yes but there are criminals there who will happily bust into your house with a gun regardless if it's legal to own or not. Also the US government can always be destroyed by it's citizens if they become unjust. (Which they're already pretty unjust but hey I can't lead a revolution) But having this many guns means the American public could form a militia at any time. There yes, I believe guns are a very very good thing.
User avatar #59 to #48 - PubLandlord (11/21/2012) [-]
However if guns are illegal its more difficult to get hold of, they would and could be arrested for having a gun , and surely if you also had your gun in your hand you are more likely to be shot, if you went up against them in a gun fight ?

and I think you incredibly naive or stupid if you think the American public would form a militia and take on this apparent corrupt government that is out to screw everyone apart from the rich , and that a civil war would be a fantastic thing ...
User avatar #84 to #59 - tehrealfluttershy (11/21/2012) [-]
The Militia probably won't ever happen but we have the resources to do so if it ever became absolutely necessary.

Pot is illegal most places in the US, do you know how easy it is to get a hold of here. All it would do it make more illegal trade. And if someone came into my house with a gun there would be no questions asked to them I would kill them without hesitation. They would never get a chance to shoot me.

Why have more than one pair of shoes? Why have more than one jacket?

The answer is the same.
User avatar #41 to #34 - PubLandlord (11/21/2012) [-]
Because I will wear different shoes and jackets, if your gun is only for self defence surely 1 is enough.

It also seems pretty backward as a country that you don't have enough faith in your citizens , police force and social standards, that you have to have a gun in your house to kill people with , it doesn't seem necessary
User avatar #67 to #41 - effthree ONLINE (11/21/2012) [-]
You have the new iphone? I bet you probably had the previous model too.

I buy and maintain firearms for a number of reasons other than self defense, yes I do have a safely secured fallback (ammunition secured separately), but I do not plan on using it unless I absolutely have to. Taking another person's life with a firearm I own is the last thing I ever want to do, I don't even kill spiders. I do not participate in hunting.
One major reason I enjoy owning and maintaining firearms is engineering, once you know how to dis/reassemble a complex machine you gain an appreciation for the work that went into it's design and production.
Another is as simple as shiny toys, some people fritter away money on giant headphones, I prefer to research and invest in guns that catch my eye.
Another reason is pure catharsis, going to the range with a few friends, rattling off a few rounds, I greatly enjoy this, you may, and that is ok by me, I do not particularly like getting drunk and screaming over Xbox live at twelve year olds, but someone out there does, and that's their thing, and I'm ok with that too.
User avatar #70 to #67 - PubLandlord (11/21/2012) [-]
That argument holds no merit to having guns being legal, just because they provide an interest to you and you enjoy shooting at the range, does not mean that they should be allowed in homes and on the street.

I could agree that you could have licensed gun ranges but outside of those don't really think there is a necessity to own your own. I upgrade my phone because I needed and use the features it has , for its use, you are only using the gun down at the range
User avatar #87 to #70 - effthree ONLINE (11/21/2012) [-]
You keep saying "on the street" like legal gun owners stroll about town holstered up like a John Wayne movie. You have to understand the image you have in your head is an unfair stereotype. I understand why you think no one should own them ever, I do, it makes sense from your perspective, but the same thought process has been put into practice numerous times, prohibition, the marijuana debate, abortion, you name it. Now I know abortion isn't the same as owning a gun to you, but to someone who believes it's murder they're the same.

I honestly do value your opinion, and understand where you are coming from. I know I cannot, nor should I be able to, change your opinion in an online argument. It's the arguments like these, those which I feel so strongly about, where I wish I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss them in person. I would love the opportunity to take you and your friends out for a time at the range, I'm not saying it would change your mind, but it would give me the opportunity to present to you an alternative image of a legal gun owner.
User avatar #92 to #87 - PubLandlord (11/21/2012) [-]
I appreciate that, I am guessing part of it is to do with culture, Americans being raised alongside guns and having it so ingrained into their heritage , constitution and essentially a basic human right really conflicts with the European standards where the overwhelming majority have never touched and won't actually see a real gun or hold one.

There are arguments for both, it's just difficult to fathom having the same gun policy in the UK

Because in America we are young. We have yet to make a mistake so horrible that it haunts us the rest our days as a nation.
User avatar #53 to #41 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/21/2012) [-]
I own different jackets and footwear for different situations I find myself in. If I'm going to the beach I need the right footwear. If I'm backpacking, my sneakers won't do the job. Same goes for jackets.

Some people here hunt, and a pistol won't do what a rifle will. Others like to shoot skeet (with shotguns), shoot competitively, shoot for fun, or are just enthusiasts. No one here owns multiple guns with the mindset of "I can kill people THREE ways now!"

We have firearms because we believe the right to defend ourselves to be an inherent human right. Our Constitution reinforces our right to defend ourselves from other people and our own government.

Also keep in mind that police do not prevent crime, a gun does. The police show up AFTER you've been murdered/raped, etc.

It's not a mistrust in the populace but rather a desire to be prepared and stay safe.
User avatar #76 to #53 - PubLandlord (11/21/2012) [-]
According to the 2006 “National Survey,” about 12.5 million U.S. residents age 16 and older hunt, and this number is falling

Thats only around 4% of Americans that go hunting, At the end of 2010 it was estimated that 45% of Americans own guns.

Furthermore are you blindly turning an eye to other statistics

In a first-of its-kind study, epidemiologists at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine found that, on average, guns did not protect those who possessed them from being shot in an assault. The study estimated that people with a gun were 4.5 times more likely to be shot in an assault than those not possessing a gun.

User avatar #187 to #76 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/22/2012) [-]
Merely providing possible reasons why a person might own multiple weapons. Most likely own one or two for protection.

I would request a source for your statistics.
The survey you quote says that guns don't necessarily protect a person from being SHOT. Yes, believe it or not, if you and a criminal are shooting at each other, you both have high chances of being shot.

Your example only looks at assaults and only looks at instances when the criminal has a firearm of their own. You're discounting the majority of crimes right there. The study also appears to be ignoring that when the criminal's intent is murder, surviving with a gunshot wound is the better outcome. In short, your study doesn't look at the full picture.

It's a very simple concept; Criminals aren't going to be very interested in committing their crimes when staring down the barrel of a gun. Why allow myself to be a victim?

But in the end the statistics are besides the point: We have this right and it is unalienable. We have this right not only for personal defense, but also for defense from government both foreign and domestic. Our nation was FORMED by gun owners resisting a tyrannical government. It is a core part of the culture here, part of the notion that man can rule himself.
