Would you say that there are more/less/the same amount of gun laws than 10/20/30 years ago?

You do not have to be a gun owner to be part of the ridiculous gun culture in this country.


What does this even mean? Just admit you're broadly generalizing million of people based on stereotypes.

There would be an increase ten fold of pencil attacks in our schools!!


Yeah. Might as well just arm more people. The arguments are so stupid.


Says the guy who thinks defenseless schools are a brilliant idea.

I have a question.

How many people would die from guns each year if there were no guns?


This isn't realistic. It's a fantasy. Gus were invented. There's nothing you can do about that now.


a libtard that wan5s all guns removed.


Yeah that's what you JUST said.

Just what it says. You do not have to be a gun owner to be part of the gun culture in the US. The 2nd amendment is no longer just about a constitutional right we have as citizens.

It's now also a culture where the 2nd amendment is a political tool, centerpiece for group-think/mob mentality and also a fashion accessory.

I already said in my first post that I was speaking "in general" and I never said all of those people. Stereotypes have nothing to do with it. It's about actions and words.

It does not matter.
This is America and mah gunz
That is the most important thing.

You can tell by the tone of the posts.


I only own 1 gun. It never leaves the house and I live in a conceal carry state..

Its about the constitution and why it was written.

i wonder if they would have written the constitution that way if there were 10 + mass/school shootings every year. hindsight is 20/20.

Much of that going on these days?

Of course I don't agree with citizens not being able to protect themselves.
But things do change. That was written when weaponry was far different than today. Not as many people.

Are you trying to prove that its been working? Because you kind of did..

Maybe just maybe the reason we have been able to keep that from happening is THE SECOND AMENDMENT..

Interesting theory. It took like 10 seconds to reload a musket. I've been watching Frontier.
Also the amount of people.

Anything is possible but I've not seen the militia going at it with the government in like never.

the problem i have with armed security at every school is that half the freaking country is either drugged up or has some kind of ptsd, how long before some trigger happy loon gets the job? before you know it we will be living in one giant militarized zone!

Like these guys were not smart enough to know weapons would change..

They wanted us as armed as those who would try to undermine us. So if they have AR-15s and machine guns we have them too..

You know why? Because we are they......

Paris? or the 38 in Tunisia on the beach? It is not just an American problem so stop acting like it is.


One attack? I said frequency. Yes it IS an American problem.


I think it's a matter of firearms and violence being part of American culture and it doesn't help that the pro-2nd crowd in this country, in general, are irresponsible in how they discuss/approach the issue.

No the pro 2nd crowd is tired of whiney little foreigners thinking they have a say in our laws..



I have a question.

How many people would die from guns each year if there were no guns?


The problem is, how do you get to "No guns"? If the government confiscated "all guns," which ones would be confiscated and which would be hidden? You know the answer to that, right? Only outlaws would have guns. You can't keep drugs off the streets. You can't keep drugs out of the elementary schools. You can't even keep drugs out of prisons, but you want me to disarm myself and "trust" you to keep guns out of the hands of criminals????

I never said any of that.
I never said I want guns confiscated
Said the opposite actually.

More guns on the street means more chances for things to happen.
That's the point I was trying to make.

Of course we can't get rid of all guns and of course we shouldn't. I also don't think we need to throw more guns at the problem by arming teachers and such.
