America, How do you reason with those who bless AR-15s as Rods of God?

Trump is right, we need to focus on mental health issues


EXACTLY RIGHT! A determined mass murderer can use a rifle, a gun, a Ryder rental truck, a pressure-cooker, backpack filled with nails...on and on it goes.

Focus on mental health but have no restrictions on people with mental health having access to guns, e.g background checks? Character references ?


will the restrictions affect these people?

if so I'm all for it

Congress is on a 10 day vacation. When they return Monday, Chuck Schumer will say "Get rid of all guns!". Mitch McConnell will say, "Give Everybody a gun!". Rand Paul will say, "Lock Up Everybody who looks dangerous!".

What will get done?

YOU GUESSED IT!

OP I really used to dislike guns.....until I got a rifle (air) and now I understand the allure of them.
I wouldn't call my rifle a tool of Jesus though I have called mine Laura after my 2nd ex wife.
If someone wants to kill people they will with guns bombs fire trucks etc no point dissing the millions who are responsible.

Matthew 26
52 "Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.


I'm guessing these people aren't very well versed on the teachings of Jesus and instead get all of their information from a cherry-picking pastor.

Honestly, it's the people 'well taught' on Jesus that concern me.

Remember when George Dubya said his middle east intervention was from 'god' telling him to do so?

You are right there, still it is far easier to kill lots of people In a short time with a gun that fires lots of projectiles quickly, it takes more thought and dedication to kill lots of people with other tools, the gun just makes it easy.

And again, a controversial topic - one side brings up arguments, links, whatever.

The other side uses name-calling.

Do you call this a discussion?

This board has become a stupid, lame joke.
And now someone will write "no, YOU are a lame joke".
So funny. Laughs will be had.

Yep, that's about it, this site is no longer a discussion site where people learn from each other, it is now something very different.

You want people who think AR-15s are 'rods of God' put in a rubber room?
Maybe you should read the bible to understand a little better.

I'd say you have some issues, far greater than any religious guy who loves his gun.


People who read the bible and come away with anything but peace in their hearts...

yeah, I think they would solve a lot of issues.. if you need a god damned book to tell you right from wrong, you're unstable. Worse if that book gives you any reason to kill others.

but hey, god abandoned me years ago. his book, written by men, is not a rule book.

Why aren't they in a rubber room some where on heavy meds?

I could ask the same about people with seething hatred and logic debilitating fear of an entirely inanimate, nonsentient object.


So America how do you plan on reasoning with people who hold such beliefs?


The same way we deal with any other nutty loon that doesn't use common sense, doesn't understand what they're so horribly scared of, and lacks any degree of logic or foresight into what they are upset over: empty platitudes, placations, and a healthy dose of good old patronization until they quietly wander away and leave the adults to discuss the important stuff.

Great, thought provoking thread, by the way.
Good stuff, man.


Every damn thing is an inanimate object. Even a Nuke. WE GET IT. ffs

When will people grow the hell up.. We get it, guns don't kill people, people kill people.

Lets all give them frigging ways to do it, easier.

Jesus frigging christ....

Perfect stooges to be scapegoated like Koresh and the Davidians when some politician wants to tie up loose ends.

Hey crazy people, you know, you lot. Stop doing bad things.

We'll just supply you with bad things, to not do bad things.

Oh the rest of us are A-Ok... we're fine with deadly things. Just you lot, stop it, and it will all be ok.

In the mean time, next week on the news, another mass shoooting.. Why dont you use a car. I know I know, it's not as intimate as a knife, and you have to find your frans on the street. But hey, leave closed places alone. We don't like it a lot. and sure, it's easier to shoot people, a lot of people. You need a bump stock to shoot them faster. But just dont. it's really not nice.

God damn it, when will you learn..

You would make a great Dictator. You think you know what's best for everybody and are more than willing to trample our Rights to enforce it.
Our guns are going nowhere and you may as well accept that.

But please, keep slamming your head against the wall in that anti gun frenzy. It's got a good beat and we can dance to it.
