I hear it all the time on this forum.


You've heard it a million times.


It's something that makes no sense, because it's insane.

"It's in our Constitution, so we deserve it! It protects us from a horrible Government!"


Yeah, I'm talking about owning guns.



You gun-owning Americans go on and on about it. Really, you sound like a broken record.

I live in Australia, and our gun-crimes are way down. Now, I know you're going to say something about the criminals will always get guns.

I don't want to hear that.

When will you get it through your heads that guns kill, and people kill? People use guns to kill because they have a good chance at causing a fatality.

Murder.

There's a nice word.


How many people have been murdered by guns in the United states this year?


Plenty.



In fact, it's too much.



what I want to know, is why a place like ATS, a supposedly 'awoken' group of people, can't see that guns are bad?


Are you that thick?


Are you that naive?




Kids, teenagers, the mentally-challenged, anyone, can get weapons easily in your society if they want to and go on a nice little rampage, and you all have the gall to cry and point fingers.





You're pointing the fingers in the wrong direction. I'll get you all a mirror.



Guns are weapons and tools.







I don't want to hear that you need them to hunt deer, especially when you live in the suburbs.

I don't want to hear that you need them for home defense, mind you, I can understand why your crime is so bad, seeing as you've allowed assault weapons to be sold in your country for so long.


Assault weapons. Are you for real? Who's bright idea was it to let those be sold?




Seriously, you people need to clean up your country.





Flame me.





I know it's coming.





I wonder how many sane people are going to respond and say "Yes, there is a problem."





Not many, I'm sure.




All the talk about protecting yourself from Government and Constitution aside, c'mon, you have to agree that guns are just bad news.





That's it.




I'm done.




Flame me or agree.

Your avatar and your spread out post tells me your thoughts are diffuse.
You are not intelligent enough to call me an Ape.
Glad you don't live here.

I know you don't understand history, but it's no accident that the USA rose so fast out of nowhere.
It's because we have freedom. No one tells us what to do. get off it.

Does that make you mad Mind Slave?

NO MORE! i'm done debating this/reading about it. I will follow the laws of my nation. I presently own a gun. If I am forced to turn over my weapon, I will lawfully.

At that moment in time however, I will know that everything has been taken from me and that my lawful freedom to bear arms has been taken from me FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF THE USA!!!

No, it doesn't make me mad.




You're a slave to history and your own fear.



If a race of animals isn't evolved enough to not kill each other, it doesn't need weapons in the general populace.


Simple.

I do not own guns.
However, I own plenty of tools that can be used for nefarious purposes, if I was so inclined.
You state in your post guns are tools.
Why are you blaming the tools, and not the individuals wielding said tools?

I am asking this in earnest.

Pretty sure this thread has been posted at least 20 times. What is the point of another one?

Who cares if you don't have a gun?

You'll still have your playstation, cable television, etc.

I've used them.



I just know that they are trouble.




Get rid of the assault rifles, automatic pistols and high calibre weapons and i guarantee you it'll make a difference.

Too many people own these 'tools.'




Who needs a 'tool' that can blow a person in half?



Nobody.

You see?


You're afraid of the Government.




They're there to serve you.



Make sure you get the right people in by electing, by voting.




The problem is simple.


The solution is able to be understood by a baby.

Here is a quick case study.

Switzerland has a ratio of guns of 45.7 per 100 people (2007). Australia's is only 15 per hundred.

Guns per capita

So the Swiss should be shooting each other all the time, right? The gun related homicide rate in Switzerland is less than Australia's...

Firearm Homicides

Hmmm maybe it's not the guns doing the killing but people in a troubled society.

Exactly.


Our societies are troubled, broken.


This is why guns are a bad idea.

Nope that's not what he said. He showed you that it's not the guns that cause it. It's that alcohol was illegal in this country and it created gangs. America is a different beast. We have different issues to live with. disarming the Guards is NOT a good idea. The Gangs will rape us.

. I dont recall in recent history anyone using an actual registered assault rifle in a crime. Those are far too expensive to go on shooting spree. Most people are killed with conventional handguns and shotguns, then semi auto rifles. No one takes there multi thousand dollar machine gun and goes killing people.

I don't need a tool like open ended box wrenches when I have a crescent wrench, but those box wrenches are far more convenient sometimes.
Having encountered bears at a job site before, I wouldn't have minded have a tool that could blow one in half, if needed.

Oh, and a air compressor can blow a hole in you with the proper attachments and pressure.

I am hoping to see a rational and logical reason to support your position.

Right. If all guns magically disappeared from the face of the planet, never to be seen again, I wouldn't mind not having mine. Until that happens, I'll hang on to mine so it's not just the bad guys that are armed.
