oh im sorry i cant hear you gun nuts from here in the UK (where guns are ilegal) where we happen to have a lower crime rate in every form
#104 to #23 - LocoJoe (09/08/2012) [-]
Ahh the UK, where you can't even defend your home.
#105 to #104 - LocoJoe (09/08/2012) [-]
Oh and if your crime is so low home come you have resorted to this?
#108 to #105 - LocoJoe (09/08/2012) [-]
And how's that nanny state working out?

Crime rate is irrelevant. Our right to own firearms stems from the necessity for a final option to stop tyrannical government.
#51 to #50 - bigmanblue (09/08/2012) [-]
so you are telling me you not only expect your govornment yo become a tyrany but when it does you trust yourself and your country to gun-toting rednecks?
glad im not related to you

You would know if you was related to him because would have ****** each other already
Americans have one of the highest incest rates in the world
User avatar #53 to #51 - durkadurka ONLINE (09/08/2012) [-]
I don't expect anything. It's just in case. After all, it's happened before.

Having a desire or sense of responsibility to own a firearm doesn't make you a redneck. Even if it did, I'd rather trust the country to them than the politicians.

It's rather stupid to give all of the weapons to the same people who rule over you.
User avatar #67 to #53 - akinto (09/08/2012) [-]
It's even more stupid to think that you need weapons to overthrow a weaponised government, all you need is numbers weapons don't do **** because do you seriously thing a little 9mm is going to do anything against the trained killers the government has also known as the army, the navy, swat, police,...
User avatar #73 to #67 - durkadurka ONLINE (09/08/2012) [-]
We can legally own weapons much more formidable than any 9mm.

How can you claim that numbers alone can be successful yet those same numbers with weapons can't do **** ?

Last time I checked the revolutions in the middle east were all armed.
User avatar #95 to #73 - chiefboss (09/08/2012) [-]
i thought it was funny when he said you can't over throw or split off from a government with weapons when we have done it before.granted the cirrcumstances were different but in the end aqll revolutions need weapons.
User avatar #96 to #95 - durkadurka ONLINE (09/08/2012) [-]
Exactly. It's pretty much the only reason the second amendment exists to begin with.
#55 to #53 - bigmanblue (09/08/2012) [-]
thats why the UK is in deep **** right ....oh wait no sorry we are actualy much better off then you
my mistake
and anyway do you truely honestly believe that if the US ever becomes a tyrany that you will react. do you truely believe that if your govornment starts taking away basic human rights that you will personaly attack the white house.
no you wouldn't, thats not how the human mind works and its not how your mind works (though from reading your comments calling you human might be pushing the boundaries a little)
dictatorships dont just crop up because no one around had no guns to stop them. thats not how the world works and the way the world actualy works outside of your little gun hole is somthing you clearly have to learn
User avatar #80 to #55 - durkadurka ONLINE (09/08/2012) [-]
I find it rather sad that you won't afford me any respect like I was willing to extend to you or anyone else who wishes to have a intelligent debate. It's rather revealing and explains why you hold such an uninformed position.

Your culture is different than ours here in the States. We don't have a tradition of being ruled by tyrants and monarchies. We have a passion for our freedoms and will go to rather extreme lengths to preserve them. I don't expect you to get that.

If you don't think we would react to tyranny, then you really don't know the US. We've flipped out over FAR less. People here would go absolutely nuts if the government began to take away our natural rights.

How can you claim to know how the human mind works when you can't even spell or use correct punctuation? You're a real authority on the intricacies of the human mind while seemingly incapable of writing coherent sentences, aren't you? I don't buy it, try harder.

Dictators crop up slowly at first. as they gain power and influence they move to ban firearms. THEN the tyranny begins. The trampling of human rights only comes AFTER the population is disarmed. The Nazis did it that way, the Soviets did it that way, the Communist Chinese did it that way, Chavez did it that way, the list goes on and on.

THATS the way the world works.

Do you really think it's a good idea to give the people who rule you ALL of the weapons? What stops them from doing whatever they wish to you? Do you trust the people who rule you? Are you that much of a fool?

and the rest of the civilised world it is illegal just America and all the other crazy countries have it legalised
User avatar #24 to #23 - badsamaritan ONLINE (09/07/2012) [-]
false we have a higher rate of people stabbing one another
#25 to #24 - bigmanblue (09/07/2012) [-]
actual we don't but keep trying
User avatar #26 to #25 - badsamaritan ONLINE (09/07/2012) [-]
i was a us marine before i came here to get away for a while. (sad story). But in the US the states with the highest gun murders are the states with the most strict gun laws. Like Cali, NJ, And IL
#27 to #26 - bigmanblue (09/07/2012) [-]
once again
guns completly illegal in the UK
we have a far far faaaar lower gun crime rate then even the best of the states
so saying that the stricter the law the higher the crime rate doesnt apply
#357 to #27 - alexhill (09/08/2012) [-]
WARNING AMERICAN RAID. Whenever the Americans come to argue logic is thrown out of the window and replaced by :
In the future do not argue with Americans and just sit back with our free healthcare, safe streets, low murder rate, healthy society, free college, superior education system, none racist society and many more
User avatar #72 to #27 - Charizard (09/08/2012) [-]
Guns are not COMPLETELY illegal you stupid **** , of course there's lots of paperwork and such to obtain one.
User avatar #28 to #27 - badsamaritan ONLINE (09/07/2012) [-]
Ok yes that is a valid point. But people can still kill people, in the military i learned how do kill people with a guitar string. It is not the gun, but the person holding it
#32 to #28 - bigmanblue (09/07/2012) [-]
you can kill people with anything
the difference between a hammer and a gun or a guitar string and a gun is that the gun was designed for the sole purpose of killing whereas the other was designed for a different use
thats why knives aren't illegal because they have many other uses
but a gun can only be used to kill it has no other purpose or use
#39 to #32 - sillyinstigator (09/07/2012) [-]
No other purpose or use? uh huh. Do all us "gun nuts" a favor.. Stay in your oh so great country. **** yeah 'Murrica
#41 to #39 - bigmanblue (09/07/2012) [-]
name one other use for guns that doesnt involve killing or practicing for killing (shooting a target)
#43 to #41 - sillyinstigator (09/07/2012) [-]
explain to mean how competitive shooting is practice for killing?
#46 to #43 - bigmanblue (09/07/2012) [-]
because you are still just shooting at something and all that can happen from shooting at something is either a block of wood with some lead in it or a corpse
competitive shooting is prooving who has the best aim and is not in itself a purpose for the object
#52 to #46 - sillyinstigator (09/08/2012) [-]
Competitive shooting requires discipline, self control and patience. It is actually very similar to practicing martial arts. It teaches you to control your body and to also understand it. There are three types of gun owners: the competitor, the hunter and the strictly self defense user.
Its competition, much like who can throw the fastest pitch, who can get to the finish line faster. Now what if youre seeing who can hit that person over there in the head with a baseball? Or seeing how many cars you can pass on the expressway? Those actions kill people too. in fact cars kill many more people than guns do, so why have cars? how about the government provides transportation so you don't kill someone with your car.

You are a winner, ser.
User avatar #37 to #32 - badsamaritan ONLINE (09/07/2012) [-]
well there are flares. also one great thing about high powered automatic guns is if you fire at the ground and jump you actually float for a few seconds
#40 to #37 - bigmanblue (09/07/2012) [-]
flare guns are seperate mechanism entirly and i dont see how flouting for a tenth of a second is really a purpose
User avatar #42 to #40 - badsamaritan ONLINE (09/07/2012) [-]
umm i think we are both thinking about different kinds of flares. also if your lost in the wood firing your gun upward can help people find you( assuming there is a search party) also if you get lost what are you going to do? run down a dear then kill it with your bear hands?
User avatar #98 to #42 - chiefboss (09/08/2012) [-]
pfft i'll run down a deer, wanna know why? because i got BEAR HANDS ************ , 'murica **** yeah!
#48 to #42 - bigmanblue (09/08/2012) [-]
so you are telling me that its common place to walk into some random woods with nothing but a gun......
you are creating the most unlikly and absurd scenarios in an attempt to gain your arguement the upper hand with idiocies
#368 to #48 - arguement (10/07/2012) [-]
#54 to #48 - sillyinstigator (09/08/2012) [-]
you are flying.. your plane crahses in a lake . you are the only suvivor, it is a place deep in the woods. A no mans land. on bord with you was US Marshall and he was carrying a gun. Using only what you may find on the plane what do you do?
#57 to #54 - bigmanblue (09/08/2012) [-]
.....what did i just say about absurd scenarios?
honestly at first i though you might be at least slightly sensible but that feeling has been blown away like the hopefull sugar glazing it was....
#61 to #57 - sillyinstigator (09/08/2012) [-]
And what is so absurd about a plane crash? Do you not travel? ok just stay in your little hole don't bother going out for there are desperate people out there ready to do anything to pay their debts but fear NOT; if anyone breaks in just offer them some tea while you wait for the police to arrive too late
