Tell me how well has the gun ban worked for Chicago??

In 2005, 75% of murders involved a firearm (WIKI)

The gun ban went into effect in 1983

I could agree with this to a certain extent. But what about young children thinking their parents guns are toys. That is a gun issue.


That is a parenting issue. Keep them away from your kids, don't leave them where they can get them, teach them what purpose they serve.



[edit on 21-6-2010 by draevin]



so teach them that the purpose of it is to kill or harm something? What will that instill in the child's mind?

Alot of deaths of children by firearms are from responsible parents.

OP.
I will not argue this issue with you.
As per ATS motto, I will deny you.
But God bless your beautiful heart.

I would applaud you if I could, but I can't so you'll have to do with just a star.

I see what you are saying, but what if a kid gets a hold of one of your guns. Or some stupid gang teenager takes a life with one?

Guns cause more problems than they find solutions.



1. Take above statement
2. Remove GUNS, insert CARS
3. Ban cars.

I love mad libs!


You are just trying to derail this thread.

Cars are made for transportation, but yes they do kill some people.

The only function of a gun is to kill or harm someone or something.

The analogy isnt bad imo...

"The only function of a gun is to kill or harm someone or something. " well that's very inaccurate as guns are most often used at a shooting range than anything, no one is harmed doing that. Using the gun is not the only purpose either, just carrying it provides security, guns are an affective means of crime deterrent.

HA fat chance of me just handing my guns over, besides if someone is going to commit a crime they will do it regardless if they have a gun or not.

Remove Guns, Insert Bleach.

Criminals are already aquiring there guns illegaly since they cannot get a permit so i doubt we would see less guns there.

Gun control does not equal less violence ,ppl can use forks ,baseball bats ,bricks etc.If people are violent they will get violent guns or no guns.As you said it yourself ,stabbings will go up.

No, as that is false information and while a gun is a destructive thing, in the proper hands it can be used to protect.

You are refusing to see how a gun is often a safer means of self-protection over other forms of weapons such as knives.

If I go against a criminal who has a gun, with a knife, I am going to get shot before I could even put the knife to use.

If I have my own gun - the criminal is less likely to attack me.

Yes criminals acquire guns illegal since they can't get a permit. But the reason that they can aquire them so easily is because their friends and others can acquire them legally. You remove guns completely, not for hunting target practice anything , no permits for citizens. You have no gun problems in a few years.

They should make a harsh law like 10-20 years in prison for anyone with a gun.

I only recently read the OP's introduction thread, so I figured I'd give them the benefit of the doubt in proving they aren't a troll.

I made a mistake =(.

Just because you don't understand how I think doesn't mean I am a troll. I had no idea this site was plagued with right-winged extremist like yourself into recently. These are my views.

I don't understand how you don't understand that?

Even if the common people surrender the guns i doubt the people who have illegal guns and who are using it for criminal activities will. Take their guns away and then maybe after a few ammendments about the patriotic law and reducing the power of armed forces inside US people can think about surrendering their guns.

They get them from illegal arms dealers mostly not from people who buy them at wallmart.If you where to buy a gun to give or sell to your friend who cannot get a permit and he commits a crime with it he would have commited it using a gun that is registered to your name.


I dont think that is how dealing in firearms really works

Try that logic on an Aussie. Gun control in Australia sent crime waves soaring because the only people that control laws work against are law abiding citizens.

I grew up with guns in my house. We were taught at an early age their meaning, purpose and use. We didnt have to lock them up, rather we kept them handy. I used to keep a loaded 12 gauge under my bed by the time i was 12. No member of my family in was ever harmed by a gun as far as I can remember or since.

It is the irresponsible gun owner that creates those statics you are so proud of, not an inanimate hunk of metal. Guns, knives, sticks, and such only become a weapon when they are in the hands of a human being. Keep them out of the hands of the untrained and statistics will go down.

One thing your neatly packaged statistics dont cover is the people that create the problem. Take drug users, drunks, gang members, thugs, the depraved and the mentaly unstable and factor that into your equations and you will see that the highest probability of accidental death of a child by a firearm is nearly non-existent in the responsible gun owners category. It is far more likely that a drunk driver will hit an innocent, law abiding citizen on the roadway than it is a child in the home of a responsible gun owner will cause themselves harm with a gun.

Hey Y2Zgt,

Which one are you? Hitlary? Barry Soetero? Rahm Emanual? Or just some hack sitting in the cubicle you've got set up taking orders from your boss at an alphabet agency???

Everything I have seen posted from you in the last few days is elite-ist horse crap. I call dis-info big time. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Move to China, or better yet, build a time machine and go snuggle up to Nazi Germany.

Ah yeah right because gun control works so well which is why Los Angeles and NY City are the safest places on the planet with all thier gun control... Oh wait...


Drug free too with all thier drug control too.... Sigh!... Stupid is as stupid does, it is just amazing so many people still buy the whole gun control BS lies. And all those poor kids killed by guns? Ahem mostly criminals and gang members killing each other and they include up to 25 years old as kids so the stats are pretty skewed. Doctors kill far more people then guns maybe we should try and outlaw them?

Oh and one more thing and any feds or alphabet agents reading this listen up; a large percentage of Americans WILL NEVER GIVE UP THEIR GUNS WITHOUT A FIGHT TO THE DEATH! You may have some plans for taking them you think are fool proof but I promise you we will find a way to resist you did not anticipate and we will prevail!
