Exactly! humans have never killed each other before the invention of guns and there was no such thing as suicide! And everyone knows the only thing that can kill babies is guns. Knives, chemical cleaners, blunt club like objects and other various items which could easily kill a grown man, quake in fear before the overwhelming power of babies! On a more serious note i do agree that there should be stricter gun laws, but seriously? there has to be a certain level of responsibility involved. Automatic weapons are completely unnecessary, and pistols are completely unnecessary unless you plan on killing someone, But hunting rifles too now? Hunting is a great resource for people who want fresh meat from animals who ate a proper diet and were killed humanely. It's a great way to really get in touch with the reality of where your food comes from. As for the responsibility issue, if a man decides to leave loaded gun out with a four year old child around whatever happens is his responsibility. Gun violence, just like any other violence is caused by people. A man could easily kill another man with a knife but i rarely ever here anything about banning knives. Killing someone with a baseball bat would be effortless, but i don't here people calling out for the end of baseball. The problem is people who are irresponsible, violent, angry, and/or mentally unstable.

take away my full auto weapon and you just fucked yourself in the event of a war on U.S. soil. take away my handguns and you just double penetrated yourself. take away my rifles and shotguns and well why dont we just go ahead and wave the white flag
#94 to #51 - killerpotato (01/07/2013) [-]
Oh right and as for rifles and shotguns I do strongly believe that people should be able to have them for hunting.
#93 to #51 - killerpotato (01/07/2013) [-]
In The case of war on U.S soil then sure civilians should be allowed to own automatic weapons, but right now there is not a war on U.S soil. As for handguns I believe that ideally people should not have them. However I do realize that some people are going to get these weapons even if they are illegal, so I understand that Other people may buy hand guns to protect themselves. Ideally the people who are not a threat and only want to protect themselves would be able to get these weapons, and the people who are going to be irresponsible, or use these guns to kill or mug people should not have them. But it is pretty much impossible for that to happen so I'm honestly torn on the handgun issue.

I will agree there you made some valid points but lets look at it from the other side. I would much rather shoot someone from a distance than go up and stab them because that shits just personal and I'm a pussy, allowing the general population to have guns is just irresponsible as its the means to kill another person if you feel like it, people are far less likely to go up and stab someone they don't like or want dead.

Baseball bats, knifes and other objects like these have another use so its just ridiculous to even call for a ban on them.

If you really want to give people a means to defend themselves give them a taser/tasergun etc. They can kill but are a lot less lethal than a bullet.

You said that baseball bats knives and other objects have other uses, but so do hunting rifles. Hunting is very big in some parts of America and for some families entirely necessary for getting food.
User avatar #96 to #95 - robertolee (01/07/2013) [-]
Yeah but people don't do much hunting in an urban centre.
#97 to #96 - killerpotato (01/07/2013) [-]
I never really specified an urban center. There are many small towns where hunting is not only very common but necessary for food.
User avatar #98 to #97 - robertolee (01/08/2013) [-]
Yes, which is why people in urban centres shouldn't be given guns. Especially large guns
#100 to #98 - killerpotato (01/08/2013) [-]
That makes sense. Maybe gun laws should vary by region then?
User avatar #101 to #100 - robertolee (01/08/2013) [-]
I think then people would become angry due to unequal right distribution. I'm english by the way so I can only pretend I know a lot about americans and their laws. I still stand by the idea that a taser for people who really want protection is the best way, it worked for my uncle when his home was broken into.

Unfortunately now though with americas huge supply of guns and massive distribution it would take an army to rid america of guns. Also with it written into the constitution (i think?) 'Right to bear arms' it would be extremely difficult to change.

All in all though I believe getting rid of the guns all together would make america a better place, as for the people in rural areas who hunt for food then maybe organisations should be set up for these people, proper control and use of the guns such as loaning/lending them out (for free of course). I can imagine the US governments love of privatisation would ruin that though.
#102 to #101 - killerpotato (01/09/2013) [-]
I'm not sure how that would be done but that does sound like a good idea. Americans might be more willing to give up their guns if they are still allowed to hunt through these organisations.

A taser, peper spray or a knife isn't gonna stop a drug addict hopped up on PCP. At least with a gun bullets will be able to stop him, even if it kills him, before he can harm you, but with a knife or taser or pepper spray he's just gonna keep coming at you till you're dead.
User avatar #54 to #47 - cullenatorguy (01/06/2013) [-]
Pretty sure the only way to take out a drug addict hopped up on PCP is with a bullet to the head or directly to the heart, which I don't think anyone is likely to hit if someone were running at your in a drug-crazed frenzy.
User avatar #66 to #54 - thatguywhohasbacon (01/06/2013) [-]
It still gives you a hell of a better chance than a taser.
User avatar #76 to #66 - cullenatorguy (01/06/2013) [-]
On average, how many drug crazed PCP addicted druggies do you run in to on a daily basis, though?
User avatar #82 to #76 - thatguywhohasbacon (01/06/2013) [-]
More than the number of people who attack me with a firearm on a daily basis.

Uhuh, and my name is Nigger Von Nigger Faggot.

Only once in my life have I ever had a gun drawn on me by someone and it was a police officer while I was drunk. There's a drug dealer down the street from my house who sells PCP and I have to deal with those assholes occasionally. It usually is only a couple of times a year but I just call the cops when I see them taking it near my house and it's done with pretty quick.
User avatar #85 to #84 - cullenatorguy (01/06/2013) [-]
And no one has shut this guy down yet? You say you call the cops on them, why don't they bust down the guys door and arrest him? Surely they get plenty of complaints, so getting a warrant shouldn't be too hard.
User avatar #86 to #85 - thatguywhohasbacon (01/06/2013) [-]
I don't know, the cops are pretty shit in my area, probably all corrupt.

The fact you got so many red thumbs is odd with such valid points, or people just read your first line and went what a retard without noticing the sarcasm.

To me the main diffidence to why the other items are not "calling for items to be banned" is a gun, even a pistol you can take out many people at once. while it is also possible with a knife or a throwing knife it is much harder to the point your a ninja/SAS.

Now farmers still need guns to protract life stock or put something out of its misery. Down here in Australia, all weapons are ban (hunting knifes, swords, axe, knuckle dusters ect) unless you carry a weapons licences. Guns are the same you can only get shotguns, hunting rifle or a pistol. All other guns are banned and it seems to work quite well.

It's rather annoying how you got red thumbs for stating a completely valid case, but I guess people don't want to hear any opposing opinions.

Guys, guns are not a bad thing. It's a little too easy to acquire certain kinds of them, but their existence doesn't condemn every living thing to a bloodbath of insanity. Crazy and irresponsible people exist, it's just a fact of life. If you want to be anti-gun, please, by all means, do it. Just don't immediately assume people with an opposing opinion are violent, blood-crazed murderers.

Not really meaning do be rude ,but you're one FJ the place were talking with an opinion is like freeing slaves in the south during 1804.

Its a bad idea when surrounded.
Here have a image!

Shit. Gotta wake up before I type.

replace one with On and imagine the rest of that sentence is not a run on sentence.

My apologies.
#99 to #70 - shredmaster (01/08/2013) [-]
Oh I know, I just never really cared. My opinion will be liked or hated, it doesn't matter to me. The people who aren't worth their salt will reply with something like "ur such a stupid faget trololol u mad bro" and the people who are actual human beings will reply politely, like you just did.
