But you are given a great deal of responsibility, which just to accept that responsibility shows a great deal of maturity, which is what bloomberg was implying that you couldn't be mature enough for a gun at 19.

No rage, even from a soldier. At training more than half the people in the company didn't deserve to be wearing that uniform, but they still slipped through the cracks.

Right. TRADOC has gotten so afraid of hurting a soldier's feelings that they don't single out and eliminate problem trainees. I'm pretty sure some jihad mother ****** isn't going to care if stabbing someone in the face hurts their feelings, and they aren't preparing them for that properly anymore. War is getting more horrifying and training is getting more pamperish.

It is going to bet better really soon, as the war on terrorism has "officially" ended, and all the branches are cutting down on their recruitment quotas, so there isn't so much cannon fodder in the mix. As for the Air Force, we have been doing a lot of trimming lately, a lot of guys who were thinking they could get in, and play in the sand box from the comfort of their chair, are finding that they are SOL.

I happen to be 19, and so are my friends, i recieved basic firearm safety traing frim the cadet force in the UK, not even close proper military training, and i can assure you i know a lot more about safe handling of a weapon, how it works and how to fire it than other people i know, because they have never handled a weapon. Thats like open heart surgery should be legal, a trained doctor can do, therefore so can a 19 year old.

I've never been in the military and I can run circles around friends of mine that are when it comes to firearms knowledge, just because you're not in the military doesn't mean you don't know about guns. And 6-9 months of training is hardly comparable to the 8 years a doctor spends on his degree, you're comparing apples to oranges.

And just because you know a few guys who don't know about guns doesn't mean everyone else doesn't, see I can do that too.

6-9 months of tactics and procedure training, the majority of boot camp is making you presentable to the army, a portion is weapons training, there isn't a large leap from civilian to soldier when it comes to basic firearms procedure.

I highly doubt someone is going to be able to shoot up a school without firearms knowledge, going through a safety course wouldn't have stopped Lanza, or holmes, or the columbine kids from doing what they did. And only 1 of those people bought a gun legally, so they're not handing them out on street corners like you think they are.

Not sure how you got that comparison. I know several people that are taught how to handle a weapon properly before they were 16. I bet a lot of them know a lot more about the safe handling of a weapon than you do. The reason your analogy could never work is because they amount of training, difficulty of training, and the prerequisites of the training are alll MUCH higher for open heart surgery than they are for the handling of a weapon of any sort.

I'm 17 and shoot guns regularly. Hell, I'd trust my 14 year old female (not that gender really matters, but some would say differently) cousin to any of the guns I have in my house. I'd trust any of my friends with guns, too.

It's not the average, law abiding citizen who should be punished through gun laws and bans, it should be the mentally incapable who shouldn't have been around the guns in the first place, which is obnoxious to even say because it's said right there that they shouldn't have been near them.

In my opinion, people who live with others who are mentally incapable of having a gun around shouldn't have them, and background checks are good, but not to the point that the process of buying a gun would be slowed down past a day or two more than it is now.

If you are not an American why are you arguing what we shouldn't and should not do? gtfo.

Secondly, The average response time of a police officer to a 911 emergency is 22 minutes. If someone is threatening your life do you think they are going to a wait a ******* half-hour to end your miserable life? They won't.

Thirdly, taking guns away makes it harder for law-abiding citizens to get them, not the criminals.

It's not all a numbers game my friend.

Fine since you can't understand more than a sentence at a time. Gun ownership should be up to the citizens not the government. Especially when they choose to be protected with fire arms.

Secondly, you don't have an opinion. If we were talking about your country's gun laws then I wouldn't have an opinion, right? Sounds fair enough.

inb4 "well what about increased likely hood of assassination?" Well just goes to show, criminals are going to find weapons whether you want them to or not.

Different meaning, how about this, i meant, during a driving test, at least ehre in the UK your ability to drive is assessed, somehow assessing your ability to handle a firearm is in my opinion the way forward, if you really want it and have the knowledge you can pass it, like the driving test, this then ensures you at least know something about the weapon when you are purchasing one.

It's the same exact way in the US when it comes to the drivers test and literally everyone passes it, absolutely ******* every, so obviously it's easy seem as if you know what the **** you're doing even though the majority of people on the road shouldn't be allowed to operate a toaster.

In my opinion if people want to voluntarily seek firearms training that's fine, but people who are forced to go and normally wouldn't seek training voluntarily probably aren't going to retain whatever information they learn.

Despite popular belief the majority of the people who carry firearms legally in the US are extremely responsible, seeing as you do have to undergo a course for that, which I think you should, I just don't think you should need a course just to get a gun to stick in your nightstand.
