the money is in the banana stand: from my blood: I see more retards who think the violence will stop by banning some guns... ok then...

If he didn't have the gun he would have...
1) Used a bomb.
2) Poisoned the water supply.
3) Used a car to run through the playground.
4) Chopped them up with a machete like they do in china

The issue is not guns.
If you were not so stupid, maybe one of you would find a solution to the violence.

Sadly, the 'political issue' outsmokes the gun/violence issue, its about getting elected now.

Gun control is logical. Not allowing the general public to purchase say rocket launchers or automatic weapons is logical. Banning "guns" in general is stupid. There is no solution to stopping violence. It isn't possible. How do you stop someone who does not fear death or any other consequences?

Why can't I have my M-79 grenade launcher?
Grenades don't kill people, people kill people.

Thing how much safer we'd all be if we all had a grenade launcher.

You should show us how it's done. Have your mom upload the video to youtube. Thanks.

That's why I lock up all my hammers in my hammer safe. And I always store the hammer ammo seperately and keep my hammers unloaded.

Uranus Is Huge!: Also, more people in the US died in meat processing accidents than with fully automatic M-16s. Thererfore, canned ham and hot dogs should be banned and confiscated and the M-16 should be made availabe to all patriotic American patriots.

Phinn: Uranus Is Huge!: Please tell me all about the futile attempts at prohibition that I have been posting about. Hint: You won't find any because they only exist in your mind.

You have a reading comprehension problem. The government's record on "solving problems" through prohibition of desirable things is an abysmal failure. Attempting to solve complex social problems through prohibition is futile.

I couldn't give two shiats what you post about.

Odd. I usually don't respond to the posts that don't give two shiats about.

Mikey1969: Better look out, someone might jump out from behind a bush and scare you at any minute, make you wet yourself

Is that why you guys all own so many guns? Because you scare easy and the world is a frightening place for you?

I thought it was just because you couldn't afford sports cars...

natas6.0: Ah! I get it now

it isn't about the guns
it's about wanting more government to regulate the things we do, places we go, what we buy
so YOU feel safe.

Well, why didn't you say that in the first place!

you coulda saved dittybopper and others a whole lotta internet breath

I take it your knew to the English language. Or maybe you have some sort of reading comprehension problem that is normally addressed in elementary school.

mbillips: There's a whole subculture of target-range competition with "assault weapons" like semi-auto ARs. Three-gun competitions involve a semi-auto rifle, a pistol and a shotgun. Sure, most people who are into ARs are paranoid anti-government twitches, but they have come up with a legitimate form of entertainment where they actually use their quasi-military guns.

Same group likes to find sticks of dynamite and blow shiat up.

thetubameister: Mikey1969: thetubameister: Hammers have other uses; guns don't (except practicing to murder scores).

And HERE is why I don't buy the "I don't see anybody here calling for a complete ban on guns" bullshiat response.

Was this a reply to the above? It doesn't seem to contradict it at all...

I was stating that I continually hear the "People only use guns to kill each other, there is no other legitimate use for them" claim such as you made side by side with people on the Left saying "Nobody's calling for a "complete" ban on guns" claim. In other words, by implying that you see them only used to slaughter people, or practice for slaughtering people, you are implying that they should all be banned, and are therefore, according to your other buddies, "Nobody".

FitzShivering: After this tragedy, when I pointed out we again had an obvious and horrible failure in our Mental Health structure, I got attacked by my Democratic friends.

I just got attacked by the farkers who I usually get along with. One of the issues with being an actual Independent, I bump heads hard with one side or the other on occasion, and people who agreed with me the day before are calling me "stupid", "psycho", "retarded", etc., and then go right back to agreeing with me on something the next day.

At this point, they can all go fark themselves. I see through their bullshiat. Both sides.

Frank N Stein: Question: Is an AR-15 designed to kill as many people as possible (as far as rifles go)? Im looking for an anti-gun farker to answer this one

No. The AR-15 was designed as a crutch for people that need many bullets to hit what they're aiming at. Those of us that can aim don't need them. The AR-15 is the wheelchair of guns.
