alright lets talk about what the 2nd amendment is about
The United States was founded because we were tired of taking Great Britain's **** . The founding fathers said to themselves "we cannot allow our people to be ruled by dictators. Government is by the people for the people, and should the people wish to overturn their government and create a new one, then that is their right. the 2nd amendment was the safeguard to make sure this is always possible. No revolution would ever be easy, but always possible. People will always take advantage of the freedom given to them, such as the westboro baptist church and the freedom of speech. but you do not punish the law abiding citizens for the crimes of the others. Having freedom is a double edged sword, but im okay with that. Any true American would be as well.
User avatar #74 to #46 - makhan (01/17/2013) [-]
I'm not trying to be an ass here but honestly a revolution like that is pretty much impossible at this point. The sheer difference in technology between what civilians have and what the military has is so huge that such a thing would really be impossible. Unless a large faction broke off from the military (who already have the weapons/technology to keep up with said tyrannical government) to help, the revolution would be short lived. As for the freedom aspect, I can understand why punishing the many for the actions of a few would upset people but this "punishment" is just giving more background checks and a round limit for magazines. This is just my opinion but I do believe that 10 rounds is plenty to defend yourself. In any case while I do support these decisions, I do believe that they should be focusing on more of a mental health care system (maybe a mental health check when getting a weapon idk). If you have any counter arguments please do respond, I'm just wondering if I am missing something others can see.
User avatar #301 to #74 - lapsushominum ONLINE (01/18/2013) [-]
Neat, I made a similar comment the other day. It said something about how the military revolting would probably be our best hope if the government did become truly corrupt.
#178 to #74 - lordaurion (01/17/2013) [-]
If you've ever talked to a US soldier in private company, almost all would rather turn on their COs than fight against civilians or at least just ignore the orders.

Also, round limits are a stupid fix in general, and typically the smaller the magazine the more reliable it is. There's a reason we don't use things like 100 round drums in the military and that's because they are unreliable. Like in the Aurora shooting, his magazine jammed after what, 3-4 rounds?. Anything over about 30 rounds is very unreliable. The people who try to push these restrictions have very little idea how a gun works or even proper terminology. No to mention the fact that they use extremely biased statistics.
We don't need to work on gun control. We need to work on finding those with mental issues and getting them real help. Not putting them on pills and calling it good.
User avatar #316 to #178 - makhan (01/18/2013) [-]
I completely agree with you on getting help for those with mental health issues. I'm only saying that these restrictions that they are trying to enforce aren't really doing anyone harm. They are only limiting the accessibility of it. It's not like they are trying to ban all guns or anything.
#320 to #316 - lordaurion (01/18/2013) [-]
Actually it does harm us, the legal and law abiding gun owners. On one hand it makes the hobby much more expensive and annoying to do, on the other it also lessens the ability for the the 2a to be used for its true reason, defend the average citizen from the government.

And as for "it's not like banning all guns". It's a compromise. We've tried compromise before and all that happens was even more regulations like the 94' AWB which did absolutely nothing as far as crime reduction. That's why we don't do compromise anymore.
User avatar #383 to #320 - makhan (01/18/2013) [-]
I don't really see how a round restriction or extra background checks are going to make things more expensive. As for annoying, I don't really see "annoying" as much as a counter argument that will hold very well against someone who lost someone to a psychotic killing spree. Also the compromise I'm going to quote Larry David here and say "A good compromise is when both parties are dissatisfied...".
#770 to #383 - lordaurion (01/18/2013) [-]
When we go to the range we either need to spend more money to by extra smaller magazines Or waste time at the range reloading our capped mags. This makes it annoying and more expensive than if we had regular capacity magazines. We'd have to buy three times the magazines to get the same amount of loaded ammunition. And honestly, think about how many of these shooting happen a year. Maybe once a month? That would be like enacting a no tolerance dress code in every school in America because one student showed up dressed half naked.

And again, we compromise an inch and the anti gunners come back later and take a foot. We give the foot, they come back and take a yard, then a mile. In the end it DOES result in banning of all guns. That is what the current ban they are discussing will basically do. What's to stop them from over the years slowly taking guns off the "approved list" Till all we have if anything is single shot rifles and shotguns?

If just about any 1st World Country has a lower murder rate than the US whilst banning guns, isn't that a sign they are used more for attacking? You can argue all you want, but statistics show legally owned guns are more likely used to kill rather than protect.
#347 to #22 - spacelubber (01/18/2013) [-]
No. No. The stupid in that argument is so pungent it hurts.

Yeah, guns are used to kill people. Absolutely. That's what they are there for: either protection or destruction.

A gun's use is not determined by its capabilities. An assault rifle is no more dangerous than a handgun in the hands of a responsible citizen.

This whole "just about any 1st world country" argument is ridiculous. Practically every family in Switzerland has a firearm in their house due to compulsory military service. Switzerland's murder rate is nearly as low as Great Britain's (the country famous for banning weapons completely). There were actually significantly more stabbings in Switzerland in 2009 than there were gun-related murders.

Let's also look to some other forms of crime. Australia banned weapons back in the '90s. Since then, there has been a 69% increase in armed robberies and a 44% increase in home invasions. Banning weapons just flaunts the fact that people no longer have guns to protect themselves.

So basically - learn a little more about causation before you spew stupidity across the web. Look up a few more statistics. The issue America has with firearms is not an issue with firearms, but an issue with the American mentality on firearms. We see them as acceptable tools in a crime. We fail to take care of our mentally challenged. We do not provide adequate support for teenagers trying to figure out how to live their lives.

Let's tell Congress to focus on these issues instead. Let's tell them to start programs designed to help alleviate the mental issues people run into. Let's focus on improving the lives of people rather than banning an integral part of our culture.
User avatar #49 to #22 - eddio (01/17/2013) [-]
Im going to sound ridiculous, but owning a gun should be compulsory, and maybe be compulsory to carry.

When was the last time anybody that wasn't a complete idiot decided to rob a gun store? or go on a killing spree at a gun exhibition?

All of these recent killings, such as at the batman premier, or the killing of those nursery school children (I dont live in the US but whatever) all happened when everyone else was defenceless. If people could carry their guns into that cinema, he would not have killed nearly as many people. Hell, he wouldn't have done it at all if he had any rational thought left.
User avatar #45 to #22 - Keleth (01/17/2013) [-]
ive seen that 90% of gun murders are commited by previous felons...who cannot legally own a weapon!!!
CRIMINALS BREAK THE LAW...whats the point in making more laws to stop them!!!
#71 to #45 - comradewinter ONLINE (01/17/2013) [-]
This is false. 2/3 of all gun related murders are done on impulse, which means they weren't planned. It's a more likely scenario that you come home and see your wife in bed with another man and you flip out and kill them, rather than having a massacre at your hands or a gang fight (unless in very apparent gang territory).

If you could just snap your fingers and cause someone to die, you would more likely kill someone with that rather than having to do it with a baseball bat or a knife. It gets more personal. A gun has a trigger that you pull. Pull it once and hit what you aim at and you're done.

It would be more sensible to sell flashbangs than guns, as they are mostly harmless and are great if you need to get away from something.
User avatar #44 to #22 - Keleth (01/17/2013) [-]
actually if you legally own a weapon and have a CCW, there is a .1% chance youll murder someone with it. the weapons they are trying to ban in this law kill VERY few people every year. easily concealed 22 and 25 caliber handguns are MUCH more widely used in crime due to how cheap and easy to conceal they are

I'm pretty sure I've never seen a statistic showing how many people use a gun for self defense without killing anybody... But that would be in the MILLIONS every year compared to a few hundred thousand crimes every year...
User avatar #23 to #22 - DerpScout (01/17/2013) [-]
That's not how you use statistics.
#24 to #23 - comradewinter ONLINE (01/17/2013) [-]
Yes, it is. If legally owned weapons are reported to be more likely to be used in commiting murders rather than prevent them, something is off.
User avatar #25 to #24 - DerpScout (01/17/2013) [-]
Right, but chances are if you are looking at statistics that show the gun murders in the US chances are those statistics might be including "justified murders"

At any rate you shouldn't be for or against guns purely based on statistics because statistics are manipulated by both side of the argument for and against guns to make it look like the other is wrong.
#30 to #25 - comradewinter ONLINE (01/17/2013) [-]
There are no justified murders. You can kill someone in self defense, but that's not considered murder, it's manslaughter. If your intention was to simply kill the person, you have commited a crime.

Government statistics show that there are more counts of first degree murders than self-defense manslaughters, which leads to the conclusion that guns are indeed not very healthy to society.

The same statistics apply to other countries aswell, however, gun usage in those countries is regulated and thus make deaths caused by firearms significantly lower.
#362 to #30 - spacelubber (01/18/2013) [-]
******** , sir. Justifiable homicide is used in the American court system as an alternative to manslaughter. Manslaughter is an accidental murder. Justifiable homicide is intended, but, guess what, justified!

Trayvon Martin's death resulted in a jump in the number of court cases that involved justifiable homicide. Stand Your Ground laws typically relate to justifiable homicide cases.

User avatar #57 to #30 - DerpScout (01/17/2013) [-]
Right but as I said statistics are all ways manipulated, just because a state has a large amount of lack of gun ownership (or regulation) doesn't mean it can be correlated to its crime rate.
#69 to #57 - comradewinter ONLINE (01/17/2013) [-]
If statistics show men are more likely to rape women than vice versa, I'm sure it means men are more likely to rape members of the opposite sex than the other way around. Guns are more likely to be used for crimes than preventing crimes, and in many situations have they proven to be stupid. The whole Trayvon thing could've been prevented if Zimmerman didn't have a gun. He wouldn't be as straightforward and avoided rushing into battle which he ended with a bang. The problem with most Americans is that they don't realize the power of a gun or the responsibility, which is why people want gun control, which has significantly reduced the murder rate in more or less every country it has been instigated in. Less guns = Less murders.

Everything in American politics is made to seem far more scary than it really is.

In reality America's got it good, guns aren't THAT huge of a problem, the economy will be fine eventually even if it means a small tax hike for everyone *oooohh scary* and a couple school shootings is something that wouldn't even make news (if they even have news) in countries that actually do have it hard.

American politicians are drama queens, and we only argue about little relatively insignificant things because we don't have better things to argue about. Some people just have to wake up to the reality that you were born in America and life will always be pretty easy, so bitching about life just makes you a spoiled American brat.
