Making guns illegal will take them off the street, let's make coke and heroin illegal too. I can grow guns in soil and they change the biology of the users to make them use. Also people die drowning, let's ban pools of water. Guns also naturally form over 70% of the earth and their pooling is necessary for life. What's a false equivalency again?

The problem is all of the victims were unarmed. If more people carried guns these type of violent crimes would cease to exist. Children need to be given guns and trained how to properly use them.

WhippingBoy: If I can have a gun, shouldn't I also be allowed to have a nuclear tipped missile?

No, you'll shoot your eye out.

impaler: The focus should be on the mental health angle, not the gun angle, otherwise we're going to 'fix' something that doesn't address this problem.

No solution will be a solution without address all of the problems and one of the problems is the ease with which dangerous people can obtain firearms in this country. End. Of. Story.

Again: why is it that the gun nuts are the only ones who absolutely refuse to look at the entire problem?

Exactly: because they don't give a shiat about fixing the problem, only about ensuring that they continue to enjoy their dangerous and largely pointless toys without having to accept any real responsibility for them.

arentol: derp

Ah, yes. The old argument of "the only REAL solution to gun violence is MOAR GUN VIOLENCE".

Your opinion is laughably stupid and directly conflicts with the experience of almost every other OECD member nation.

onyxruby: There is no argument or discussions to be had, for I have declared the matter moot!

So, basically, you have no idea what you're talking about and you think that's a limitation on my part.

Tell you what. Go yell "FIRE!" in a crowded theater and let me know what happens after you get arrested and then try to argue that you were just exercising your right to free speech.

Now go away. Your refusal to continue to fail to understand a basic tenet of American law is not amusing.

Incog_Neeto: If it was really about saving lives we would ban cars.

If it was really about your false equivalency you would be King Potato.

Of course because the weapon doesn't matter! If we took away guns people would go on mass fork stabbing sprees and the carnage would be unspeakable.

duffblue: Gotta love these instant greenlights, guess the mods are the type of people that piss themselves at the idea of firearms.


Because only a complete coward would think that gun nuts should have a few basic responsibilities placed on the acquisition and distribution of their deadly toys. I mean, it's not like any other rights come with limitations on their use based on the impact it can have on other people or anything.

The REAL tragedy here, after all, is that somebody might have to wait an extra day or two to get a gun or reload slightly more often at the local range. Truly a historical atrocity with no equal.
