I'm just a guy seeking pleasure in the simple things of life. Grateful for the wealth I do have, thankful for the diseases I don't.

Don't aim to outshine the stars - aim to shine among them.
Unseen and yet adding to the beauty that is the world. The best part is: You always shine, however dim it may be. So you're always part of the beauty that is the world.

If you fear that you might not be shining at all, hit me up. I'll help you see your own light.

Besides that I'm also pretty cool. Yo.

why isn't anyone complaining about martial arts

when you get a certain grade you have to register your hands as a deadly weapon

archery is no where near as deadly as guns. just about anyone could easily walk into a crowded building and kill 20-30 people with the right kind of gun, your average person walks into a crowded room with a bow they'll be lucky to kill one, maybe two guys.

The problem most reasonable people are having with guns isn't with small fire arms for self defense like pistols or hunting guns like your standard rifles either, it's with assault weaponry capable of killing 10-20 people before they have a chance to try and defend themselves falling into the hands of unstable individuals with increasing frequency.

1: rate of fire, as you stated
2: you can't conseal carry a longbow
3: skill
A: aiming a bow is harder than aiming a gun
B: For a bow to kill a person you have to draw back the arrow a lot, the drawback weight already ensures the majority of the population is not capable of instantly killing you with a bow unless they hit you square in the eye or another vital spot.
#74 - anon (06/23/2016) [-]
I would like to note drawing a bow is about proper technique and form. You use the muscles in your upper back to do most of the work, not your arms (which the majority of people try to do).

These reasons are more against bows then for guns. This makes using a bow more dangerous.

It makes it safer for people to have a bow because its harder to kill with.

Its easier to aim a flamehthrower than to aim a gun. flamethrowers are more dangerous

I used to make bows that could kill rabbits and rats when I was like 10, even then they would have done a good amount of damage to down a man, maybe.

when i was a kid, i made a bow with a tree branch and the elastic band from some old sweatpants i shit you not . In just two days i accidentally injured two kids, one in the knee and the other nearly lost his eye. The second kid's bitch of a mother snapped my bow in half for that. Still I learned at a young age that bows are weapons and perfectly understand the need to learn to use them under the supervision of a pro

Because I can't sneak my longbow into school in my backpack?

Because I can't kill a clubfull of people in a minute with a bow and arrow?

Because being accurate with a bow takes years of practice but you can get good enough with a gun to kill people at reasonable close-mid ranges with just a couple hours of training?

Because disarming somebody with a bow is significantly easier, since it's larger and more unwieldy?

I'm totally anti gun control, because banning them doesn't do shit to stop crime... But yeah, guns are a WEE bit more dangerous than a bow and arrows.

Nothing special. My gamertag for years was "(TRR)zip." (Team Railroad) One of the parties I ended up playing CSGO with had another guy named "zip" already, so they started calling me "tee double R" which got shortened to "teedoubler" or just "T."

I'm not part of TRR anymore, but the name just kind of stuck, so now I use "teedoubler" as my tag most of the time.

Crossbows are dangerous as fuck though, granted, you won't have the fire rate of a bow, let alone a gun, but if you want to shoot a guy dead, it's easy to do. There are fairly small crossbow, the ammunition is fairly easy to acquire or make if you have some connections (people with metalworking skills), and if they can easily shoot through a human being.

If you fire off a big crossbow with a steel bolt in it, you'll probably be able to shoot at least halfway into a hamplanet before the explosion of fat will send it back at you at half the speed of light.

#119 - teedoubler (06/24/2016) [-]
I didn't say they weren't dangerous. But since most people aren't protected by 3 phone books and a bulletproof vest, a handgun with a good-sized clip is a much more dangerous weapon if I just want to sneak a weapon in and kill lots of dudes fast.

Dead is dead.
#121 - insanefreak (06/24/2016) [-]
Didn't mean to come off as saying you're wrong, just bringing my two cents in about what I know about possibly lethal weaponry. You're on point when it comes to bows not being usable for mass shootings, unlike guns, I think that crossbows are just like bows, but they're easier to sneak into a building, to kill a single person.

However, compared to guns, they are nearly harmless.

#27 - wallbuilder (06/23/2016) [-]
Had a cop come to our school once to teach us about stuff, he said he put 3 phone books (2-3 inches thick) in a bulletproof vest and shot a crossbow at it(I don't know the context, maybe it was investigative). Said the crossbow went right through it and stuck in the wall behind it. They're pretty fucking strong.
#42 - insanefreak (06/23/2016) [-]
Aye, heavy crossbows are basically small ballistas, they'll dig through most thin things. Concrete, steel (if thin and fired from close by), they'll just woosh through it.

Things are incredibly powerful, but a bitch to reload.
#16 - anon (06/23/2016) [-]
rate of fire... and no one calls for taking away hand guns or rifles just background checks. so whats your question?
#78 - anon (06/23/2016) [-]
why the red thumbs? its a valid poit. Yeah some people call for ban on guns but the happy middle I think is making automatic assault weapons difficult to get. I'd like to have an kickass AR-15 myself, but it feels weird that I can manage to get one easier than I can secure a loan or even get a frkn drivers license.

"automatic assault weapons" "AR-15" kek. mate, the only iteration of the AR-15 that was an assault rifle was the prototype, and it evolved into the M-16.
#108 - saytwaa (06/23/2016) [-]
**saytwaa used "*roll picture*"**
**saytwaa rolled image** i thought the ar15 was the civilian version of the m16? since folks loved the m16 so much they wanted a semi auto one to have around the house. folk being military folk. still as much of an assault rifle as a semi auto 22 squirrel gun though. there are many more ways to effectively kill a large number of folks. disarming folk is the last thing we need

Automatic weapons are difficult to get. There's an incredibly complex and expensive process involved in becoming licensed to own an automatic rifle of any sort. You can't just walk into Walmart and buy one.
#113 - anon (06/23/2016) [-]
Sure, legally. You can legally buy an AK-47, and then use a bread tie to make it fully auto.
User avatar
#84 - whiterabbitfoot (06/23/2016) [-]
...that should be the case everywhere then. Honestly, went a with a friend of mine who has a ranch here in texas and saw him buy one pretty simply, he had a gun license, but even then he told me it took him 2 days to get and a simple background check.

And theres private gun store owners, who can make it easy by receiving just cash.

I'm glad to hear some places it is tough.
User avatar
#86 - unladenswallow (06/23/2016) [-]
I think the issue is that you're thinking of those "military looking" rifles. I get the feeling the thing your friend bought was semi-auto. One trigger pull = 1 bullet. It'd take more than just a couple days to get through the process for a full-auto weapon, even if you're already licensed. Automatic, all you have to do is hold the trigger down and it keeps firing until it's empty, and those are extremely restricted already. The issue with trying to make it even harder to get a semi-auto of any sort (it's already pretty hard unless you buy illegally [and laws won't really matter in that case anyway]) is that you end up restricting just about every gun that exists from .22 pistols up to large mag rifles.
User avatar
#114 - whiterabbitfoot (06/23/2016) [-]
yeah, you are right about what he bought...but I know the difference between auto and semi lol.
Ahh okay. That all makes sense. What Im most concerned with is whos getting them. I should say there should be a vetting process to get a gun; the idea that a person on some person that is on a watch list shouldn't be able to buy one, is one I can get behind, but I thought that was already in place? Because Omar was on a list but they couldn't get any hard evidence he was a threat, right?

Dang these red thumbs, just trying to be a reasonable guy.
User avatar
#115 - unladenswallow (06/23/2016) [-]
He wasn't on any watch list though. The FBI had investigated him, twice, and found nothing. There's all sorts of theories as to how they found nothing, especially since the first investigation was a report by a bunch of coworkers that was dropped because the coworkers were "just racists". But he wasn't on any list.

The issue people take with tying gun ownership to something like the no-fly list (as is the most prominent idea) is that the no-fly list is completely arbitrary and has no rules. Old ladies have found themselves on it. Children and babies. Even several Congressmen were/are on it. There's no rhyme or reason, because it isn't a Federal program. It's just a thing the airlines put together. Flight overbooked and you get upset that your $15k vacation is now fucked? Congrats, your Constitutional rights are suspended. And there is no notification that you are on the list, nor is there any real appeals process. You can get put on it for literally nothing and it can and does take years to get cleared up.

Obviously people on the terrorist watch-list are barred from buying guns, but you don't get on that list just because you annoyed a gate agent at the airport. You've been thoroughly investigated and there's probable cause to believe you might just Aloha Snackbar yourself or others. That's legislation that already exists. But tying the no-fly list into gun control is a horrible idea, because there are no rules to it. The government could put everyone in the country on it if they so chose and there's nothing anybody could do.

From a legal standpoint, there's nothing that SHOULD have prevented Omar Mateen from buying guns. Nothing. If his wife hadn't been the perfect little obedient Muslim slave/wife and actually reported that her husband was a psychopath, then yeah. But there was nothing that was within the bounds of the law to stop it. So people want some new list that somehow reads people's minds and digs into their entire personal life and knows everything about them, which is obviously not possible outside of violating a good chunk of the Constitution. Some suggest that anyone with a mental health issue shouldn't be allowed to buy a gun. But what about ADD/ADHD? That's a mental disorder, but I don't recall ever hearing about an ADD patient plotting/carrying out a mass murder. They probably couldn't focus long enough to plot such a thing anyway. What about Asperger's? What if you took Prozac 5 years ago? What if you have treatable insomnia? The theater shooter in Aurora had NOTHING that would have barred his owning guns. NOTHING. Mental health records were good, very good student, bright future. Then he just kinda went off the deep end abruptly.

There's a ton of restrictions as it stands, to the point that not much more can be done without going full out Orwellian. Suspected terrorists can't buy guns. Felons can't buy guns. Anyone with a history of violence is (for the most part) barred. Tacking on compliance with a poorly organized, non-government related list won't help anything. People like Omar Mateen would still be ok. And even then, I somehow doubt that such a person as Mateen would be deterred much by a negative background check. It's feel-good legislation at its finest, legislation that would serve only to violate peoples' rights while doing nothing to actually fix the problem. "Oh no! I failed a background check! Good thing there's a porous southern border that smuggles in guns by the ton per week so I can buy a gun in an alley!"

I've never understood that. if you want to go that high tech, why would you not just use a gun? Is there actually a situation where hunting with a high-tech bow would in any way be better? They're just as expensive as a good hunting rifle if not moreso.

I've always thought the whole point of archery was as a show of what you can do without modern technology.
