Kuroshin: You can never change anything if you don't go after the root cause of an issue.


This isn't directed at you personally but rather to everyone. What are the root causes of gun violence, or violence in general, in our society? I know, mental illness is an easy one, and it is a cause. But I'm guessing the majority of violence in this country is not due to mental illness. So other than mental illness, what are the other root causes of violence in this country? Because I agree, if putting more restrictions on guns won't solve the problem then let's really focus on the true causes.

FightDirector: kg2095: FightDirector: kg2095: Self Defense? When was the last time any of you gun fetishists ever defended yourself or anyone else with your killing machine?

In case of foreign attack? Your gun is equally useless against ICBMs and 767s.

Guns are for psychos and knobs.

Question!

If I were to relate about the time I used a firearm to stop (without shooting) what was definitely Assault with Deadly and what was about to turn into a forcible rape, would you simply dismiss it out of hand, or try to turn it back on me saying that a single anecdote doesn't change anything?

Yes, I would argue that the occasional good outcome doesn't justify the countless deaths from rage shootings and accidental shootings.

Then I'd posit you aren't engaging in a debate, because you aren't willing to have your mind changed. Therefore, enjoy crapping up the thread. Good day.

*leaves thread*


Yes, I'm sure you're willing to have your mind changed aren't you? That's why you ran away from the argument.

What you need is a virtual e-gun so you can put danged pinko commie libruls like me in my place. Aint that right?

Olympic Trolling Judge: kg2095: Among the world's 23 wealthiest countries, 80 percent of all gun deaths are American deaths and 87 percent of all kids killed by guns are American kids.

That's a stupid and terrible stat that doesn't account for population size. The one you want is just before it:

A study in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery found that the gun murder rate in the U.S. is almost 20 times higher than the next 22 richest and most populous nations combined.

Though I'd love to know a) why they cut things off at 23 nations and b) what America's rate is compared to the second-highest in that group.


While it doesn't account for population size I think it's a pretty safe bet that the US does not account for 80% of the population of the world's 23 wealthiest nations.

I'll see what else I can find though.

My proposal (as a Connecticut handgun owner): If you are male, take an SSRI, and are under the age of 30, then as a condition of taking an SSRI, you must (a) live in a dwelling that has no guns in it (b) must have your drivers license marked as not permitting a gun purchase or any use of gun ranges etc (interestingly, Connecticut requires a photo ID to buy guns, alcohol and weirdest of all, to vote -- crazy I know)

Not saying this would have stopped Newtown, but it would have directly addressed the problem there (assuming we find out that little lord fauntelroy was on an SSRI, which seems very very likely).

Mom would have had to move the guns out of the house. He was denied a gun purchase earlier in the week any way. My law would literally have stopped the sequence of events, ASSUMING that the people involved were willing to comply with the law (which is mostly his mom, he clearly wasn't).
 
2012-12-17 10:45:17 PM  

Kuroshin: But there's also the very solid point that you can never pick a definition of a weapon to ban that will not impact legitimate sportsmen and women. My .30-06 is FAR deadlier than any AR-15 or Glock on the planet. However, it doesn't look scary, so most people wouldn't even give a crap.

You're throwing around names in an attempt to quantify emotion, not lethality or danger. There's nothing inherently more lethal or dangerous in an AR-15 than any semi-auto hunting rifle.


I agree the 30-06 is a lot more gun, yet people don't worry about something that has been around for a long time. If you haven't fired one, it would not impress you that my almost 80 year old aunt used to hunt with a M1 Garand. However, some guy flashes his new black painted toy that shoots a .223 round and everybody turns jealous or afraid. I don't know what my uncle carried, but he gave her the M1 because he knew she could handle that. I would be happy with the M1. She out hunted him one season.

AddictedToFoobies: The sad part of all this is that the Internet Outrage typified in this thread will have about as much affect as it did on Penn State. Both situations are tragedies, just differing in scale.

Lots of people will get worked up and run around yelling with their virtual hands over their virtual heads.

Then, after the dust settles and all is said and done. nothing will really change. Why, you ask?

Just as with Penn State, the furor of the debate is driven by emotion, not facts or logic. Meanwhile, the chance to have a real effect on the root cause of the issue(s) will be lost because of assholes desperate for a pulpit.


I don't know how possible that is.

There's a strong and growing sense of nihilism in American culture, reflected in political movements, government policies, media, and entertainment. Tearing down, "deconstructing," rebelling for its own sake, making everything and everyone a target of ridicule, having no constructive ideas yet crying for the dismantling of every vital economic institution ... all of these join media and entertainment in demonstrating that American culture is committing suicide.

Don't get me wrong - I'm NOT one of these people blaming movies and video games. They're not causations; they're symptoms. And I'm definitely NOT going to say that praying to imaginary gods is the solution.

Americans needs to be inspired ... truly inspired. Not just feel-good stuff like some poor kid winning X Factor, or something attention-grabbing that a sports figure did, or electing a black president, or whatever this week's shiny new distraction is. We need to see men and women forge new paths, succeed on honor and merit, reach higher and higher, and do so with conviction and pride. We need an Apollo program, or a new technological development; we need a stronger economy, where people can actually achieve their dreams, rather than give up on them because they can make more money trying to up-sell apple pies to drive-thru customers.

I know it's not as easy as passing some useless law regarding clip size or a new bullet tax or some nonsense, but if you're really interested in doing something to prevent this kind violence, a good first step is: stop celebrating and encouraging nihilism. You do it far more than you know.

Proposals to ban "assault weapons" come only from people who know nothing about guns, and yet, with absolutely no knowledge about the topic, and no ability to describe what an assault rifle is, know that banning them, whatever they are, will be a good thing.

They are lightweight, smaller, less powerful, semi-automatic rifles. As opposed to the heavier, more powerful, more deadly, semi-automatic rifles. (I know, real assault rifles are automatic, but those aren't available for sale - so we will go with the public's misconception).

If you ever have to choose between taking a shot from an M14 (big mean real semi-automatic rifle) or an M16 (assault rifle) and you want a hope of survival, choose the M16. Hell, it was designed to wound, not kill, so as to impose medical costs on the opponent.

The "right to bare arms" needs updating. It made sense 225 years ago when it was accepted you were using your rifle to hunt for food or kill marauding redcoats and injuns. "Sane people have the right to bare reasonable arms" makes more sense in modern society. If you need a semi-auto rifle to hunt you are a shiat hunter who shouldn't be in the goddamn woods to begin with. Deer, hogs, turkeys, ducks, quail, and even bears rarely shoot back. There is no reason for a sportsman hunter to have an AR-15 or equivalent. Guns don't kill people, but people with guns are a hell of a lot more proficient at killing people than people with knives or bows.

Though I'd love to know a) why they cut things off at 23 nations and b) what America's rate is compared to the second-highest in that group.


Vital statistics from the U.S. were compared to those from 22 other high-income countries with populations over 1 million people that reported causes of mortality to WHO for 2003. Researchers relied on The World Bank's definition of a high income nation, which included countries that had a gross national income per capita of $12,276 or more for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011.

The most recent data, mostly from 2009, shows a gun homicide rate of 3.0 per 100,000 people in the U.S. and 0.2 in the 22 other countries used in the firearm fatality study. The U.S., with its decrease, had a rate around 15 times those of other countries.

It's not a comparison to the second highest but it is still a useful comparison - the US compared to the rate for all other countries in the survey. 20 times higher in 2003, dropping to 15 times higher in 2009.

Both quotes are from here: Politifact: Rep. Jim Moran says U.S. gun homicide rate 20 times higher than other western nations

These were the same people who also thought slavery and Letters of Marque were good ideas. Yes, our Constitution is a pretty amazing document but it wasn't handed down to us from God, and discussing changes to it is not blasphemy. Maybe, just maybe, the gun laws that worked for a sparsely populated agricultural society of 225 years ago don't really work today.

This may be of interest...


Rather than looking at the sheer number of deaths caused by firearms in the top ten exporters, a more accurate way to compare them is by gun deaths per 100,000 citizens. In that ranking, for those who break gun deaths out from their annual murder rate, the United States is again at the top of the list, this per the World Health Organization and the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime.

The United States in 2009 had 3 gun deaths for every 100,000 people over the course of the year, completely eclipsing the next nearest country's rate of .96, coming from Israel, by a wide margin. When you factor in the .243 rate of France, the second-highest gun owning country, the United States' gun troubles seem even more problematic. Notable in this context, in the aftermath of mass shootings, other countries have tightened their laws accordingly and seen a drop in gun violence.

From here: ThinkProgress: How does America's love of guns measure up internationally?

Note that the stats in that article are from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime. I would think these are reputable sources to anyone but the most extreme.

Get rid of all the shiatty "reality" shows. Bring back the older shows like Wild Discovery. Rerun classics like "Beyond 2000". And make some new content that actually matches the term "Discovery".

Seriously, this mindset of "Let's imitate what's most popular because it gets ratings!" really needs to stop. Especially when it's a bullshiat genre like "reality" TV.

Now Top Shot I dig. I hope they bring that one back. It's refreshing to see a reality show that's an ACTUAL competition. No judges needed.

I quit watching top shot when it stopped being a shooting competition and became another stupid reality voting people off the island type show.

Remember when Sci-Fi Channel actually had sci-fi? The guys who took over after the first few years (dunno if they're still in charge) stated that they didn't want Sci-Fi Channel to be seen as a channel for geeks, losers, and stereotypes, which is why they dropped as much sci-fi stuff as they could and replaced it with wrestling and other shiat.

kg2095: 3StratMan: kg2095: Kuroshin: kg2095: Self Defense? When was the last time any of you gun fetishists ever defended yourself or anyone else with your killing machine?

Five years ago. Wife was being stalked by the director of the movie in which she was starring. He was dangerous and the police wouldn't do anything about him until he actually turned violent. Things went in that direction...

Your move, dipshiat.

OK, lets see a link to the news story where you went all Dirty Harry and killed a bad man. Otherwise, I don't believe you.

Link

The linked story does not appear to have anything at all to do with you or your wife. I think you made that story up.

As for the article, it does give examples of incidents that would have been worse if armed bystanders didn't intervene. But that's precious little comfort to the loved ones of all those killed in temper tantrums that escalated to shootings - road rage for example. Or to those whose children were killed in a game of cops and robbers played with a real gun found under daddy's bed. And those victims far outnumber any saved by non-psychos carrying a weapon.

Among the world's 23 wealthiest countries, 80 percent of all gun deaths are American deaths and 87 percent of all kids killed by guns are American kids.

From here: Gun Deaths: A Familiar American Experience


That is a misleading article since they take the top 23 according to GDP per Capita.

Why is that a big deal, you ask? Well if you take it as just top economy by GDP without the per Capita which adds in a lot of the low population middle eastern countries and you exclude those with huge gun violence issues such as Brazil, which would drastically change the bullshiat they are trying to spout

There are numerous reasons for gun violence, mentally unstable people not getting help and large poor populations in the countries where the top half are rich.

In fact if you take it as just GDP you get only 7 that stay in the top 23 when you do it per Capita
, and drops out places like Mexico who have higher incidents of gun violence than the USA, again do not believe the bullshiat stats some put out, just like michael moore they twist the facts to fit their agenda.

Again, stating legal gun owners and then factoring all kills in a stat that include illegal gun deaths is not the least bit biased at all.........

The biggest issue america has is they spend billions to keep shiat illegal.

DonPeyote: coeyagi: The Troof hurts: Either way it would be nice if the media would stop calling the AR-15 an assault rifle.

The should call it a tickle rifle. Because for one nanosecond before massive bone or muscle damage, that's what it does to your body.

And now my penis has a new nickname.


Which one?

Tickle rifle? Massive Bone?

I hear everyone else already calls it nanoseconds.

Olympic Trolling Judge: StoPPeRmobile: How many Rhode Islands is Israel?

About 7, not that it matters. The citation given is shootiness per capita. (Per 100,000 capitas, technically.)


Why doesn't it matter?

This should be good... Go on, we're all listening....

What makes a rifle an "assault rifle" anyway?


In a strict definition, a firearm must have at least the following characteristics to be considered an assault rifle:[4][5][6]

It must be an individual weapon with provision to fire from the shoulder (i.e. a buttstock);
It must be capable of selective fire;
It must have an intermediate-power cartridge: more power than a pistol but less than a standard rifle or battle rifle;
Its ammunition must be supplied from a detachable magazine rather than a feed-belt.
And it should at least have a firing range of 300 meters (1000 feet)

an AR-15 is an assault rifle and it always has been despite what The Troof hurts and rush limbaugh would have us believe.
