I've thought about kicking an old lady into a pond with the ducks she's feeding. Doesn't mean that I'm thinking about such things on a daily basis, nor does it mean that I'm crazy.

Nor does it mean I'm crazy. I mean, I'm sane.

But what of the insane ones who act on these thoughts? I be a few old ladies have been kicked into duck ponds over the years.
#723 - rakoom (02/23/2013) [-]
Doesn't mean that it was insane people that did it either. If the answer to the original question was if only insane people would use a fire-extinguisher as a bludgeoning-tool then no. But the average person don't go looking for his/her fire-extinguisher when he/she hears a burglar. They COULD take it, but if they find something else, say... A frying pan first, then they'd use that instead.

And crazy people don't always kill people with common household objects. Some do, some wild and irresponsible people also do, but no typical group of people.
User avatar #724 - Zarke (02/23/2013) [-]
And why would they choose a frying pan over a fire extinguisher? Frying pans are awkward.

They have a handle. That's why the 'common man/woman' would think 'hey, I'll use this as a weapon!' But my point is that people would use if if they saw it when they felt threatened.

Thats a good point, that is why people need to train before even buying a weapon.

Since i have shot weapons, and have taken courses, i would know that even shooting the ground in front of their feet would be enough to break their determinedness and make them run, but if i really had to shoot THEM, it would be in the lower leg/arm. Nothing to kill them, but to definitely wing them.

Those are crowd-control measures, not self-defense measures. If you can find me evidence that people have reliably stopped attackers (particularly the sufficiently enraged, determined, or drug-fueled variety) with bean-bag rounds and rubber bullets, I may reconsider my previous point.

True, true. I've got both of my non-restricted and restricted fire-arms licences. It makes me much more comfortable and secure knowing that other people had to go through the training as well. Your comment about the M14 and FAL are completely true as well.

I guess you could say the same about alcohol... oh wait but it will never be made illegal as it's not economically, politically or socially smart. Restrictions are the most you will ever have, and are something that I, as a gun owner and pro-gun member of society, believe are necessary for society. Just like putting in laws to stop drunk driving. you might not get everyone, hell, most people will probably get away with it, but that extra percentage that you just stopped, those people you just saved by putting that law in place are what makes the difference.
User avatar #324 - Zarke (02/22/2013) [-]
But you have to think about what good those restrictions do for society. I agree with some legislation. For example, I'm fine with our licensing system in Canada, as it ensures that prospective gun owners are aware of good safety practices and keeps some potentially dangerous people from legally acquiring firearms (doesn't stop troubled inner-city youth from getting their hands on them, but it's not as big a problem here as it could be). However, restrictions and bans that are arbitrary and could be described as "knee-jerk", "feel-good" reactions do nothing to prevent crime. I mean, why the fuck is a semi-automatic, magazine-fed M14 in 7.62x51 non-restricted, but a semi-automatic, magazine-fed FN FAL in 7.62x51 prohibited over here?

Dart's, archery, BB gun's, pellet guns, paintball, and golf are all perfectly non-lethal alternatives for people who want to shoot at targets. Gun's are lethal projectile weapons, that has and always will be their primary function no matter how much you want to insist otherwise.
User avatar #504 - Zarke (02/23/2013) [-]
Archery - non lethal. Yup.
There are things you can do with a firearm that you just can't achieve with any of those formats. You'll never take a BB out to a thousand yards. You'll never split boulders with a paintball. You can only take your abilities so far with those formats. You'll never be able to push yourself as far as you possibly could with any of those options. Why should someone's life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness be limited by your fear and insecurity?

I'll repeat: Design doesn't designate intent. I never said they weren't designed to kill. However, function is an extension of intent. Their core function is to propel a projectile. It's what you do with that core function that determines the end result.
User avatar #532 - moser (02/23/2013) [-]
People general don't use bows to murder others. The arrows used in target shooting use blunt tips which cant kill unless they hit you in the eye or the temple.

Gun's are used in 68% of all homicide in the US, so it is a legitimate concern. You can't speak about individual rights as if we are all isolated from one another, the rights of people to own a "tool of recreational target shooting" has the side effect of providing an easy means to rob someone of the right to live (why is it so important that it needs to be able to do that?).If degenerating the right to bear arms can further uphold the safety of others, we should consider doing it.
User avatar #536 - Zarke (02/23/2013) [-]
Bows are designed to kill, but you say they aren't used that way. Design doesn't designate intent. My initial point.

Ever hear of the phrase "innocent until proven guilty"? You can't assume a being is malicious until they have been proven as such, and the millions upon millions of gun owners in the US that never have and never will commit a crime would happily agree with me.
User avatar #623 - moser (02/23/2013) [-]
Bows and arrows used to be designed to kill, they have been re-engineered for sport at the expense of their lethality, guns have not.

Sure, but that's not an excuse to treat guns as if they are no different then owning anything else. Anybody shouldn't just be able to go to a gun show and purchase a gun without a background check, nor should they just be allowed to circulate without any regulation or any record keeping about who has them. As guns have become more lethal we need to start thinking about them as responsibilities not rights.
User avatar #624 - Zarke (02/23/2013) [-]
I don't want to be the one to pull that card, but you are horribly, horribly ignorant. This is tiresome.

Also, dealers at gun shows are required to go through whatever State regulations are in place. It's private sales that you're thinking of, and those don't necessarily occur at gun shows. If you can pass off a full gun registry, then MAYBE you can hope to control/regulate that. However, that would tie up an INSANE amount of bureaucratic resources. There are around 300 million guns in the US. No body of labour alive on this earth would willingly do that much paperwork.
User avatar #626 - moser (02/23/2013) [-]
I've actually practiced archery as a hobby, believe me it takes a lot of practice even with the proper tips to be even half as lethal as you would be with a gun.

It was an example I'm aware of the laws.
"It's a lot of work so lets not even try" k. We don't even have to register all guns now and hope to solve the problem overnight. We just need a starting point, start requiring all new gun purchases from dealers to submit registration. Replace the background check requirement with an owner's licence requirement and have the licence require the background check. Real simple common sense solutions that should make everyone happy, except for the minority gun owners who only own because they fear the tyranny of "Imaginary Hitler". But those are the same people who think we should be allowed to own RPG's, Grenade launchers, flame throwers, and even fully functional tanks, so why do we even care what they think?
User avatar #628 - Zarke (02/23/2013) [-]
Then you of all people should agree with "Design doesn't designate intent". You can foo-foo away the lethality of a sufficiently propelled arrow all you want. It doesn't make your hobby any less dangerous. However, I bet you consider yourself plenty safe, as do the majority of gun owners.

If you're aware, then it was a shitty example.
I'm fine with licensing, but that is where it should stop. In my eyes, a safe, stable, law-abiding citizen should be free to get their hands on whatever the fuck they want.
At the same time, don't ridicule these people by calling their fears an "Imaginary Hitler". If people have a reason to take precautions (ex, a government restricting more and more of the common people's rights [ie, Internet censorship, firearms bans, violent government reactions towards protesters... wait... oh...]), then let them. I may not agree with their line of thought, but I can at least understand where they're coming from.
User avatar #639 - moser (02/23/2013) [-]
Gun's aren't nerfed for the purpose of sport however. Bows are no longer used in warfare and so their only purpose is sport, so even though they can still be lethal they are no longer designed with that in mind, if nothing else they are designed to be less lethal in favor of other properties. The same can not be said about guns. If 85% of the ammunition consumed by gun owners was special non-lethal ammunition (as is the case with archery) then a comparison could be made between the two. And even that remaining 15% is mostly crossbow bolts used in hunting (and a crossbow is pretty much just a gun that shoots arrows anyway).

And I would be fine with letting them have whatever they want too if I knew they could be trusted with them. If it can be sufficiently proven that they can [i.e. they allow for registry to insure that they can take responsibility for any misuse of said item (it gets stolen, they lose it, they use if for criminal intent, or sell it to those who would)], then by all means. But for what these weapons can do, we can't afford to just blindly put our faith in everyone and hope for the best. Same reason we don't allow ownership of explosives without a special permit, the same philosophy needs to be expanded to firearms. But since they are not as lethal nor as destructive, we can allow more leniency.
User avatar #640 - Zarke (02/23/2013) [-]
Alright. Get your buddy to shoot you in the chest with these "practice arrows" and tell me you won't go to the hospital. DON'T WAVE AWAY THE LETHALITY OF THE PRACTICE. This is why I called you ignorant. That kind of thinking is foolish and possibly dangerous.

Again, innocent until proven guilty, and I pull that at a stretch because often there isn't a crime to push guilt at. In excess of 290 million firearms were not used in a crime yesterday, and I'm pretty sure you can expect to see similar numbers tomorrow.
#641 - moser (02/23/2013) [-]
True story; that happened at camp I went to in scouts, kids were playing around and one got hit, he cracked a rib and had to go the hospital. It was scary but he was never in any danger of dying. Lethality doesn't mean the potential to hurt you it means the potential to kill. I never said bows couldn't do either but blunt tips are specifically designed to only be able to pierce something as soft as a target.

I don't see how any of that changes due to a registry. It just makes it so when a gun is confiscated from a criminal it can be traced back to who is supposed to own it and an investigation can be launched. Determining if A) The gun was stolen, in which case fair and appropriate action will be taken to ensure the guns are stored safer in the future or B) The owner sold it to the criminal knowing they didn't have a license to own one in which case they will go to jail and lose their license.
User avatar #645 - Zarke (02/23/2013) [-]
And I'd count that kid damn lucky. What if it missed his rib? Then he'd be in trouble.

We had one of those up here in Canada. It was deemed inefficient and ineffective with regards to solving and preventing crime. It'd be even more labour-intensive down State-side, considering the sheer number of firearms that are bought and sold on a given day. The cost would outweigh any potential benefit and it would get scrapped after a couple years, like it was up here. These databanks have to be managed. It takes labour to do that.

I'll disagree with that amendment and point that back to the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

As far as I can see, something denying women a political voice (part of Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness) shouldn't be in there anyways, and I'm glad that society has progressed past that point.

Any gun can go into the wrong hands. Not just "so-called" ARs (which in reality is a scare-term used to describe semi-automatic rifles with scary-looking furniture). Remember that Virginia Tech massacre? Committed with handguns (using 17 10-round magazines at that). Columbine? Shotguns/handguns.

There are millions of these "assault rifles" in the U.S. The vast, vast, VAST majority of which are not used in crime and likely never will be.
User avatar #13 to #12 - vanoreo (02/12/2013) [-]
I for one think we should just get rid of guns all together sometimes...

But that would be incredibly hard, impractical, and guntoting rednecks would get mad.
User avatar #14 to #13 - Zarke (02/12/2013) [-]
Well, that's pretty well impossible and would likely do no good. You'd have to extract everybody from the country, overturn all the soil, search every nook and cranny, and force everybody to walk back in one at a time through metal detectors.

Secondly, not just rednecks. When there's almost a gun for every person in the U.S., you can't generalize such a large number of people as "gun-toting rednecks". People from all walks of life collect, shoot, protect themselves with, hunt with, and compete with firearms. I mean, what about recreational shooters? We aren't harming anybody, and you're arbitrarily robbing us of our hobby because you don't like guns. That goes right against our rights to Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
