RoxtarRyan: Noam Chimpsky: the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Pretty sure if the founding fathers looked forward in time, they would have put a little more definition in the 2nd. Highly doubt they wanted to secure the right for people to be able to walk around carrying guns that have enough firepower to kill a small gathering of people in a matter of a few seconds. Of course, they also revered intellect, knowledge and reason... things that, if not long lost, have become detested in this country.


Same thing for the first amendment too huh? I doubt that they would have wanted to secure the right for people to spread massive amounts of misinformation and lies to millions of people through television and the internet. They probably weren't planning on securing peoples right to worship the devil either. And I'm damned sure they weren't looking to secure the right for a million African American's to march on the nations capitol.

Your logic sucks. And the founding fathers did not exclude a single weapon from personal ownership via the 2nd amendment. Therefore a person could own a cannon if they wanted to, a gun with enough firepower to kill a small gathering of people in a matter of seconds.

Iplaybass: hardinparamedic: birdmanesq: Guns were involved in 2/3 of the homicides in 2011. And that omits suicides and accidents.

The point called from Beijing, and said hi.  It's not just a gun problem. It's a complex, multifactorial issue. The idea that you can distill it down to a gun problem is an insane attempt at hiding your head in the dirt.

And the majority of those homicides involved drug and drug-related crimes, and were committed using semi-automatic handguns. Yet, somehow, blatantly banning all guns is going to solve the problems?

Let's not address the drug culture and problems with the laughable "War on Drugs".
Let's not address crippling poverty, lack of a single-payer healthcare system, or the failure of the system as it stands to care for mentally ill people.
Let's not address the fact there are reasonable measures that we can undertake to reduce gun violence, such as closing background loopholes.

But no. Let's ban the guns. That'll solve everything!

It's a complex, multifactorial issue that could be halted significantly with tightened gun laws. But no, you retards are too stupid to see that. Despite the fact that it's worked elsewhere.


It's also failed elsewhere.

fluffy2097: Fissile: In 2010 there were 31,513 total deaths caused by firearms,,,,,homicides, suicides and accidents.

around 30 people die a day to drunk drivers.

When are we going to ban alcohol again?


And over 1200 people a day die due to cigarettes.  Let's ban those too.

Oh wait, that won't happen...because government is too busy profiting off of other people's pain.  The gun control argument is no different.  It's the same war; just a different battle cry.

I'm all for banning cigarettes, they do nothing except cause misery, while making the Koch brothers rich.

Popcorn Johnny: Mrtraveler01: Poverty?

So lets give all the poor people free money and they'll stop robbing, shooting and killing. I mean it's not like it's at all their fault for the financial situation they find themselves in, right?


How about we just have more opportunity....I can guarantee you that ALL poor people aren't poor because they are lazy and choose to be.
But hey, wtf, you keep on with those simple minded over generalizations.

-------------

Which is still only 1/3 the total amount of people killed by firearms every year.


Meanwhile, there are 80,000 alcohol-related deaths every year in this country.  And unlike guns, alcohol has absolutely zero utility, and alcohol consumption isn't even in the Bill of Rights.

To be fair, this is New Orleans we are talking about here....... I don't think that possibility that it was the New Orleans Police Department can be eliminated from consideration.

As a Paramedic, you are an idiot. Drunks are much more likely to kill others than they are themselves.  The physiology of this, is because they are more relaxed when these things happen. But a drunk will often take out entire families. BLAH BLAH BLAH Appeal to authority, trolly name right winger......

What? That isn't what your link says.

It says there were 8,583 homicide-by-gun victims in 2011.

It also doesn't give the statistics for suicide by gun or for accidental gun deaths, so it's an incomplete picture.

I miss when white people had gangs. They were more like sports leagues, what with names like the Sharks and the Jets. Worst thing you had to worry about with white people gangs was them breaking out into dance and song and blocking the alleyway for a few minutes.
