I own guns for my own protection because if some gun wielding criminal tried to mug me on the street or broke into my house I feel comfortable in the fact that I have something that I can rely on to protect me. I hope I never have to use my handgun on another person but I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Ah, but the question is, can you pull it out in time. If you can, you can do the same thing with a tazer or a pocket knife

It's actually really a great feeling to know that, even though I don't feel like going on a killing spree, the option is open if I ever feel like it.

It's harder to beat, strangle or stab more than one person at once than it is to shoot a bunch of people at once. That's why many gun control laws don't take guns but restrict clip size. Quit with the false analogies.

So you're saying "there are so many ways of killing people, it makes no sense to try and make the easiest one harder"?
#412 to #394 - Gonnafly (01/13/2013) [-]
Actually beating someone is the easiest
If you go into public with a gun people Will panic and attack you,
But if you just have a baseball bat That is less likely to happen allowing you to Kill your target by bashing their head In.

Obtaining a baseball bat is easier as well because there cheap and common

Why did this guy beat, strangle, stab, and shoot a corpse? Why didn't the other guy stop him? That's the main problem here.

I feel really conflicted about this whole thing. On one hand I agree that it seems logical to assume that arming the populace, which generally tend to be good, if not acceptable, people, would reduce crime.

On the other hand, I've looked at statistics, and apparently the countries with the most AND the least gun deaths have guns legalized, meaning that it's obviously not so simple (not that I thought it was to begin with).

Also, to the point of people wanting guns to overthrow the government if they needed to, I also have conflicting thoughts that come down to too many variables. First of all, the government has resources in the military that would make guns basically useless, on the other hand, the general population far outnumbers the military, but like I said the technological difference makes me not think it would matter. Another variable that should be considered is if the government truly became incredibly terrible, who is to say the military itself might rebel, in which case the guns don't matter that way either?

Just thoughts.

Yeah, I like to go with what Canada is doing.   
< Basically, no automatics guns.    
   
Pistols are only allowed in three places, the gun shop, home and shooting range. No where else. (Of course you need to put the pistol in your car, but if you are caught with the pistol in your car at public place, just to stop in for a second, is illegal. You're allowed to go from your house to the place you want to go, then back. No pit stops)   
   
Rifles and shoot guns are allowed to be used in hunting, but besides that, the same rules as pistols.    
   
All guns must be under lock and key, and the ammo for said guns must be in a different room and also locked up.    
   
Thats what I think is a good system, but what can I say?

Baseball bats are used for baseball. Rope is used for rope things. Knives are used for cutting things. the only thing that guns are used for are killing people, and marksmanship. Marksmanship can be accomplished with small caliber rounds like .22's and stuff. You don't need AK47's with armor piercing exploding rounds and grenade launchers for anything legal or ethical. I'm pretty sure everyone is fine if you do target practice with a .22 rifle, a small caliber shotgun for hunting, or a small caliber pistol for home defense, but fully automatic weapons, armor-piercing rounds, high-capacity magazines, and explosives really should be illegal.

I love track and field events. It's fun to watch the runners sprint away at the sound of the starter's rope. Wait.....that's a GUN, isn't it.

man all these gun posts are really ridiculous. I mean I guess it's fine that anyone can buy a firearm, you know whether they're mentally stable or not. And let's not forget "2nd amendment muh freedums" yeah when the second amendment was written that was about having a standing militia, which in today's day in age isn't relevant. Let's also keep in mind that when they wrote that there were not any fully automatic, even semi-automatic weapons that were portable and able to more than once without reloading. "DUUUUR if guns are illegal that will only stop law abiding folks from having them not dem der criminals" well it seems to work well enough in other countries doesn't it?
#68 to #65 - xxxsonic fanxxx (01/13/2013) [-]
first of all, the 2nd amendment was written at a time when your average person was equally armed as your average soldier (different levels of training and discipline mind you). it wasnt put in place to single shot muskets or they would have said that. it would say: "you have the right to bear a musket, but not a cannon" or something like that. so dont give that same bs no semi auto **** .
secondly, the amendment is there not to save your ass from some random criminal, its to save the ****** country from threats. both foreign AND DOMESTIC. its to prevent a president or congress or the supreme court from becoming tyrants and trampling the rights of the people. no matter how many safeguards you place in government, they will eventually erode and create tyrants and you must revolt, peacefully or violently.
that is why we have guns.
and dont give me that **** , "it works in other countries". no it doesnt. it does stop gun violence (the majority, not all) but you get other crime stats up. london has by far the one of the highest knife attacks per capita in the world. crime will shift. and what happened when those riots in england took place? they got out of control. what did the government do? they armed up. stopped the riots pretty quick after that. what does that tell you?

Guns laws should at least be more strict. Not banned, but more strict. I mean knife laws here are pretty strict.

Maybe I don't know, have people undergo mental assessment, and make it a lot harder to get a gun. Maybe then less psychopaths would have guns. I mean I know a lot of people say "oh they were nice people really" but if anyone could find underlying psychological problems it'd be a professional. So make the assessment compulsory for getting a gun.

I think the main difference is the other items have other uses. Knife cutting vegetables, bat for baseball. I'm not sure what exactly he strangled him with so skip that one. Guns are made for shooting animals, or warfare. They are hunting weapons, used for killing. We don't use guns for simple everyday tasks, like a knife. Their only use is killing living things. The only other use for guns I can think of is competition.

Guns are a lot like bows and arrows. So why aren't bows and arrows illegal as well, they are used for killing (originally) and are used in competition , well because they are harder to use. A gun is a bow and arrow an idiot can pick up and use in a few minutes. It is very hard for someone to pick up a bow and arrow and become deadly with it. We can't add laws on idiots so they add laws on guns.

In my opinion the thing they should do is make it a lot harder to get guns and have many mental tests to test your mental stability before you can have a gun. Someone told me that in Israel (may have been a different country), you are limited to bullets in your lifetime, and it takes around 2 years to get your gun, with many mental tests during those years. That way the idiots and insane don't get guns, but the people that actually want them and need them get them.
