If I love anything about FJ, it's that the content is one side of the story, and the comments are a dozen others.

Statistics for the win.

The government is going to take away your guns because none of you fat retards let anyone be moderate or neutral about your metal pill launchers, so nobody with a brain wants to defend you. If you think a slight increase in gun control might be useful to keep the gun trade more easily regulated, you're supporting people that want to take away anything that even remotely looks like a weapon to "protect the children". If you think easing back on existing gun control laws might be necessary to prevent infringing on civil liberties, you're supporting people that want to literally make owning a weapon an obligation and completely disarm valuable police departments to "prevent tyranny".

And whether you like it or not, statistics are not a trump card, because they can always be used to prove either side of an argument. Argue on reasoning.

Or better yet, POST SOMETHING FUNNY and go back to Facebook if you want to post political propaganda.

Whenever I look at stats, I know I'm going to hate it. Stats don't mean anything really. They can be argued either way. Most "self-defense" gun crimes could be argued otherwise, just look at George Zimmerman. And comparing the United States to Honduras? Really? Look at this **** an argue otherwise:

www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2012/12/14/schoo-shooting-how-do-u-s-gun-homicides-compare-with-the-rest-of-the-world/

Regardless, I think it's a citizens right to own a gun and protect himself with said weapon. But still... ******* statistics.

Instead of banning, barring, and taking, we should be teaching/promoting safety, mental health checks, training, and moderation/limitations. That applies to all things! Food, entertainment, guns, etc! Teach people, educate them, progress society while keeping your rights. Don't offer meaningless statistics and anti-reform.

CRIME control not GUN control

I just love these pro-gun plaques. They're so biased it's simply hilarious.

Saying the murder rate is lower in the US than in Honduras is just top kek. One is a well-established state with possibilites for the vast majority, another is a ****** country where you can't pull out your wallet without getting shanked. It's like refusing Jews freedom of speech and justifying it by saying "At least we're not Hitler". You could compare the datas to Norway, where the gun ownership rate is high, but it's purely hunting shotguns that are useless for any combat purpose. We also have the lowest murder rate in the world. Not because of our gun policies, but because our country doesn't have a violent culture.

It's also little comfort saying you possess 3/6 of the worst school shootings, and then compare it to an entire continent. Also, the source of this is biased; only 2 of the 6 worst were in Europe, the other in Palestine, and one of them was hosted by a pro-Chechen terrorist group. Giving the civilians weapons wouldn't help much against automatic rifles.

Guns will of course chase off mass murderers and other criminals alike, but most murders happen on impulse, which is why it's better to not have a gun in your holster when someone wrongs you.

That being said, the murder rate in the US is due to ****** policies and culture, not because of gun ownership. The US would be better served trying to get ends to meet, rather than oppsing groups to each other.
