Quote from Nekrodrac
You find it amusing?
Is it also amusing that there are currently no dead school kids here in the UK because somebody flipped?
No dead movie goers or dead shoppers?
You know what, i can definitely get used to this degree of comfort.
So your argument is because a largely disarmed population isn't causing gun crime, a largely armed population would do the same with the onset of legislation? I know you can't be this ignorant. You realize how guns are taken away and exactly how these people react to it. What do you make of the calculus involved there? Do you think it's worth averting disasters (which have other more preeminent causes, as I articulated before) by creating more violence on a daily basis in the form of enforcing such a law?
Quote from Nekrodrac
You don't want to let go of your guns out of irrational fear. Simple as that.
Comparing with the UK is completely valid because it is still human beings that are involved and history of gun ownership is utterly irrelevant.
We need to consider the legacy for the next generation. I would rather not leave them in the climate of an imaginary power balance strugggle that you currently think exists.
I don't have a gun, so again, your ad hominem is a wasted straw vestige of an argument. Your illogical assertion that a direct comparison to the UK (which has never seen firearm ownership - ban or not - at a fraction of what the US has maintained through the entirety of it's history) is valid does not make your point.
Your only "struggle," for the future appears to be demanding that everyone give their uniformed bothers and sisters increasingly larger amounts of control over their daily lives. If you find this balance of power between the individual and central authority to be illusory, I invite you to wake up to the world around you.
Quote from TheDemokin
There is only one country in the world that has a high amount of school shootings, or any other type of shootings of innocent civilians... There is only one country in the world where they make movies, series, etc about hostage taking, shooting, and graphic murders... There is only one country in the world where you can eat McDonalds every day until you get fat like a pig, sue them ... ............ and WIN!!!!......
Yes, yes, we get it. You hate fat Americans with their guns etc. etc. Your opinion of the entire population, not all of whom are patriotic, fat, stupid, or supportive of the crimes you mention; only shows your own bigotry.
