If you have a gun, and use it CORRECTLY, someone gets hurt or killed. If a bat is used correctly, the only injury is the other team's pride (or the occasional pop fly to the face). A baseball bat is a tool for a sport. A gun wasn't intended to be, and is not. It is a weapon. and if used correctly, it's extremely dangerous
#152 to #138 - anonymous (01/24/2013) [-]
Yes, because the only correct use for a gun is to kill other people.
There's no such thing as sport shooting, or hunting.

Firstly, I really doubt the accuracy of this chart. But let's assume it IS accurate.
Imagine there is a rampant killer armed with an AK-47. I think he'll do a lot more damage than if he was equipped with a bat. SO yeah, there are probably a lot more cases of people getting killed because of baseball bats, but a single case of an armed (with an automatic rifle) killer can be a lot more harmful.
Also, I bet it's a lot easier tog et a baseball bat than a gun. But then again, I don't live in the U.S.A., so Iwouldn't know.

What about deaths by dildo?
User avatar #135 - demandsgayversion (01/24/2013) [-]
Because more people have access to baseball bats. But in a shootout with a gun, more people are going to get hurt by the gun than anyone would from one guy with a baseball bat.

You might as well say more people statistically get stung by bees than killed by tanks. Should we use bees in war? Probly not.

Probably has something to do with the lack of people beating children to death with baseball bats... just sayin...

I'm not going to walk into a movie theater and kill 15 people with a baseball bat.

Someone comes after me with a bat I'm better suited to survive the encounter than a guy with a firearm.

Hide in the bathroom.
Wait for people to come in alone.
One hit to the back of the head.
Stash the bodies in the stalls.

Alright, go swing a bat at someone's temple and let me know if you get an assault or murder charge, *******
#129 to #127 - mackigol (01/24/2013) [-]
It's a possibility.

A mass killing could not be carried out with a ******* baseball bat, you ******* idiot.
User avatar #130 to #129 - Onemanretardpack (01/24/2013) [-]
It'd be extremely easy to do that actually. And are you implying mass killings weren't a thing before guns?
#131 to #130 - mackigol (01/24/2013) [-]
Extremely easy?

Sorry, I didn't know I was speaking to The Incredible Hulk.

User avatar #134 to #131 - Onemanretardpack (01/24/2013) [-]
Swing, they're down. Then another to the head while they're down. Not too easy to survive getting your head crushed in. Baseball bats give the perfect amount of leverage to knock the **** out of things. You don't exactly have to be the strongest man alive to swing a bat. Just don't have the upper body strength of an anemic premature baby (which I can only assume you do), and you can kill someone pretty damn easy with a bat

'Mass Killing'

The word mass implies a group of people. Is everyone standing around watching while you take down unmoving, reactionless, mannequins?

It's not even worth debating.
User avatar #140 to #139 - Onemanretardpack (01/24/2013) [-]
So everyone in a mass shooting is just sitting there, not moving and not trying to fight back? **** you're stupid. It's a lot harder to hit a moving target with a gun than a baseball bat

No, they're busy getting shot you penis.

Most people's first thought when someone starts shooting is to get the **** out of there. Not so much when someone's swinging a stick around.
#151 to #144 - jakelguy (01/24/2013) [-]
I think I'd still think "That guy is beating people with a bat, maybe I'd better leave". but thats just me. also, just a little fact for everyone, the worst school massacre of all time, was commited with no guns.

Ya down in the ghetto in Houston. There are shootings everyday but this one happened to be on a community college campus so it got publicity.

There's shootings everyday?? Doesn't that concern you?
User avatar #119 to #118 - justadude (01/24/2013) [-]
No because if there were no guns then people would find another way to kill each other, guns are just easy. Guns aren't the problem, people are.
#125 to #119 - dando (01/24/2013) [-]
I suppose so but with a gun its over so quickly and its pretty much a guarantee if you shoot someone they're going to die unless you're not a good shot but people may be less inclined to kill someone if it takes longer in public like beating someone to death with a bat. it'd be hard to kill more than a couple of people with a bat whereas i'm reading about mass shootings every other month here in Britain and i couldn't tell you the last time we had a mass shooting.
Dont get me wrong I don't think taking guns away now would help in anyway it's too late if you tighten the gun laws its only going to make things worse as people will seek ways to get guns and exploit it.

Do you have to have any kind of training or take lessons to own a gun?

gunshot wounds are very survivable
User avatar #128 to #125 - justadude (01/24/2013) [-]
Ya there are classes for concealed carry but I think they should be more extensive. Gun ownership takes a background check that will soon become more stringent in nature. If America could evolve its gun culture to one more like Switzerland the nation would be a safer place to live.
#154 to #128 - dando (01/24/2013) [-]
Sounds like a good idea with the background checks I'm all for it I don't understand why anyone would be against it.

Honestly, most criminals get the guns illegally... I don't understand why innocent, law abiding citizens will not be allowed to buy a gun that they have no intention of using to kill another person... Im all for more background checks, but outright banning something wont solve the problem... Look at illegal drugs, they still make it into the country.... Just saying.
#109 to #89 - xheavymetalx (01/24/2013) [-]
Actually, most gun homicides are commited with a firearm that was bought legally, though the criminal may have stolen it, hence making it "illegally *obtained*". But it was still a legal weapon. However, I do agree that we shouldn't completely ban them. But background checks are good. Even the 2nd amendment says "well regulated", right?
User avatar #124 to #109 - Onemanretardpack (01/24/2013) [-]
Actually, the first part of the second amendment has nothing to do with the rights of gun ownership. It's a justification clause (or something like that, I had this explained to me once and I can't remember it for the life of me), which is a reason for the proceeding clause. It's basically saying that we need guns to be able to have a well regulated militia, not we have guns because of we are the militia
User avatar #123 to #109 - iamslender (01/24/2013) [-]
I meant to say legally obtained, thanks for pointing that out. But anyways, If we had these background checks, and the guns came with a lock box, I think it would be a much better system than outright banning them

Baseball bats serve a purpose other than to hurt people with. Firearms only purpose are to injure/kill other

I'm not for more gun control, just pointing out faulty logic
User avatar #81 - happygrowman (01/24/2013) [-]
around more than 11 thousand deaths should be reason enough to ban firearms dont you think? stop pointing fingers.
