Gasoline in a plastic cup is way more dangerous and would affect many more than a clip of rounds...knives, alcohol, planes, frying pans, bats, clubs,
table lamps, Cars, bow and arrows, re-bar...I could go on and on...
Objects dont kill people...people kill people
I don't know man... I don't think any of those objects would do much good getting the fox that keeps geting all the chickens and ducks around here.
Even with an arrow he just messes with you, standing basically metres away, he knows exactly how far he needs to be from you to be safe, to what ever
object your chasing him with... If guns were on the property, you'd never even physically see him.
Even a fox knows whats more dangerous... lol.
But its a stupid debate anyway... It seems obvious that guns just don't belong in large modern cities.... the 2nd doesn't have the hindsight of that
fact... But Americans as a whole are not about to give up their current gun rights.
So, as a result, the US has a higher rate of gun violence compared to countries with similar qualities of life... There's nothing you could really do
about at this stage... Hillary's obviously going to (at least try) ban assault weapons, but can't see that doing anything but making one political
ideology really happy, and the other political ideology really angry... can't see it doing much for actual crime.
CNN or whoever always like to use Australia as an example of how strict gun control works and to be fair, we have seemed to eliminate the random mass
shootings... But the thing is, Australia's always obviously had a far lower homicide rate and even though our homicide rate did decrease after the 96
gun reforms, the homicide rate was also declining in the US and other western countries at the same time.
Australia's gun culture as a whole has always been about hunting too, never really about protection... we've just never had that whole "there's bad
people who want to murder me and my whole family (just because)"
angle going on in our culture... Its a bad comparison in all honestly.
Who really knows what would happen if they enacted strict federal gun regulations in the US... guess you'll all have to wait til Hilary gets elected
to find out... lol.
