Everyone talking about gunshots in other neighborhoods is forgetting that we're talking about Orlando, FL.

Gunshots are the norm.

MilitaryTigger: To all the asshats clamoring for gun control... Man up, support your beliefs and plant one of these signs in your front yard or on your apartment door (the door down to your mom's basement doesn't count).

To all the asshats clamoring for MOAR guns... Man up, and stop shooting your families before your shoot yourself.

CDC statistics says this is the way you and your family will die from gun violence.

Noticeably F.A.T.: Dman33: The question is not whether or not we should limit guns. There are countries with higher overall homicide rates which are not related to guns. The question is why are Americans so homicidal? Yes, there will always be crime, but the crime rates do not have to be so high.

No no no, haven't you been paying attention? You don't try to work out the why when it comes to violent people, you make guns illegal! That fixes the problem. Well, it doesn't, but it will. We just need to find a big enough gun control stick.


Well, you are right that the problem is much larger than just gun control, but you are missing the point as to the problem itself. America is gun crazy. This is part of the problem.
Will gun control alone fix the problem? No. We do need to look at places with very low homicide rates to figure out what is wrong with our f-ed up country though.

Lowest homicide rates per capita:
Quatar
Singapore
Denmark
Germany
Ireland
New Zealand
England/Whales
Spain
Switzerland
Chile
.... 11 more countries ....
United States

There is something wrong with our country and we need to fix it.

Cyberluddite: Knucklepopper: Now if you want to talk about a culture where civilians are not allowed to carry weapons, I'd encourage you to visit Mexico.

Well, Mexicans aren't officially allowed to carry weapons, but they certainly can and do carry them. Any Mexican who wants one can easily have one as long as they have the money to buy one--and the most common source to buy one are the cops, many of whom probably make far more money selling guns on the side than they make from their cop salaries.

You're right, though, Mexico is truly the real-life example of the "if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns" thing.


Lol you think mexico is one big ganster movie where cops are walking arms dealers. The criminals are really the only ones in mexico with guns. Sure some people have blackmarket guns but thats a fraction of a fraction of the populaton.

Mrtraveler01: I seriously doubt that conceal carry would stop all shootings. Wouldn't that just make that person an attractive target to the shooter.

Your complete lack of logic is stunning.

Crazy people will do crazy things. Humans are violent by nature and rarely, some go over the edge. Attempting to legislate this truth out of existence is pure foolishness. Clinging to a utopian belief that making it illegal to own guns will stop criminal activity is idiotic... Criminals break laws by their very actions. Attempting to limit law-abiding citizens from their ability to defend themselves is absolute, purely criminal stupidity.

True, gun control isn't an automatic fix, just like easing gun regulations wouldn't be an automatic fix either (contrary to what some sumg pro-gun people say). This is a very complicated situation and a lot of it has to deal with psychology in my opinion.

That's the issue. The drug dealers have more powerful weapons than the police thanks to the blackmarket.

Oh, I'm late to the gun debate? Darnit.

btw, I have a CCW and I carry almost all the time, or at least in the car. Most of my closer friends have theirs as well.

I'll put any amount of money on the fact that our guns will not be used in a way harmful to us or our families. To even think we perpetuate the problem is ridiculous at best.

Every single damn statistic for gun holder shows that people who DO own CCW permits are LESS likely to commit a crime. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

(...and there is also a much better chance these violent freaks who just snap and start shooting would get taken down a lot faster if more people subscribed to the notion. Peace with threat of violence is a very REAL and effective detterant.)
 
2009-11-06 02:45:56 PM
I'm pretty sure Singapore's homicide rates are low because they use the death penalty often. I think you can even be executed there for drug trafficking or possession. They don't mess around. There's no waiting 20 years for appeals either.

I'm not saying that we should ban guns. I'm just saying it's idiotic to believe that conceal carry will magically end shootings and brings crime down dramatically. I believe people have the right to own a gun. I just don't believe every idiot should be able to get a gun as they damn well please. In other words, you're utopian belief that we will all be much safer if we have guns is pretty stupid in my opinion. It won't do much to curb the gun violence.
