I'm trying to keep up some intelligent discourse here, and I'm not really sure where your animosity is coming from. Just because something makes it easier for you to do something doesn't mean you should fear it irrationally. I could go to Lowes right this very instant, pick up a few supplies, come back home and whip up something that could take out far more people than a pistol or a rifle.

You seem to not realize that guns are absolutely essential to our concept of freedom, and it's not because we just like to have things that go boom or something deadly that we can boast we own. It's because over 200 years ago, 13 colonies rose up against an arguably oppressive empire and broke the bonds holding them in order to rise up and become the most powerful country in the world (but certainly not the greatest). They stood up against tyranny and thanks to their militia's ability to bear arms they were able to overcome an entity far more powerful than themselves.

Today America is faced with a far graver threat to its people's freedom, and it has nothing to do with that bullshit about terrorism and Muslims "hating our freedom" which in itself is one of the most absolutely ridiculous concepts I've ever seen become so viral.

The 2nd Amendment to our Constitution, the foundation for our entire nation, states that its citizens will have the right to bare arms. With these arms, they will protect themselves from whatever tyranny and oppression should be laid upon them by the powers that be.

So when you tell me that we should ban these pieces of metal and wood simply because people are too goddamn lazy to fix the problems of gun control instead of just the symptoms, you identify yourself as the problem itself.

Did you ever hear the one about arguing with you is like playing chess with a pidgeon? No matter how good I am ata chess, the pidgeon will just knock down the pieces and strut around victoriously. You sir, are that pidgeon. My point is that I think guns are bad, no matter who wields them.

Oh you're absolutely right, guns are terrible. They're tools of death, and have no place in civil society. But basing your personal beliefs on gun control on the idea that they're just bad is an absolute waste of your mental abilities. You're obviously an intelligent person, but what do you want to happen? You cannot remove guns from this Earth, you literally absolutely can NOT. They are here to stay, and human nature dictates that where there's a will there's a way and the will for human aggression far outweighs any fickle piece of legislation. I'm not debating with you that guns are bad; they are. I'm debating with you on how we can work around human nature, or better yet work with it, to make gun ownership a safer venture in the world.

Also, do you realize that mas shootings are responsible for less than 100 out of 12,000 homicides in the US each year? They're sudden and tragic, THAT'S why they receive such sweeping media attention, outrage and sympathy. If the media devoted as much air time and emphasis to mass shootings as they did every other homicide, the nation would hardly notice.
