Here we go with the assumptions and baseless insults. Learn to debate a topic without falling back on childish things.
Sincere apologies if I came across as rude, its not meant to be malicious, its just my frustration shining through LOL
1. Where did he get the guns? Truth is no one knows yet. He could have gotten them from an improperly secured location, or he could have purchased
them off the street. to the best of my knowledge a teenager is not legally allowed to purchase a gun, which would mean that he obtained these guns
He could have gotten them from the easter bunny but Im willing to bet my $500 Oz against your $10 US he got them from a family member. Now unless your
just being facetious and you actually expect that the guns came from the parents 50-1 odds have gotta be pretty good. Im happy to put the money in the
care of a mod till we can find out difinitively
2. At what point did i advocate being able to buy guns from any tom dick and harry? No matter which way you spin it, guns CAN be purchased illegally
off the street without any background checks or regulations. This will always be the case no matter what laws any given government passes. I
personally am all for background checks and requirements for training and responsible use and storage, but again this will only apply to those that
abide the law. There is nothing that can be done about all illegally obtained guns until that gun is discovered by law enforcement.
Heres an idea, how about making the guns harder for the crims to get in the first place. 70% of firearms used in crime come from legal purchasers and
have either been stolen of bought for the person. Also heaps of guns are stolen in transit to places they would have been sold legally. Gun crime and
death is such a problem in the US because they are everywhere and there is very little taboo on handling one
3. The main point of my post, and the point you seem to be missing is that criminals do no follow laws. Making a law banning guns will not magically
remove all guns from society. It will only remove guns from those that abide the law.
I get your point, like I got the 200 times Ive heard it before, lets see if you get my point.
All countries have criminals with guns, we agree nothing can be done. What all countries dont have is teenagers regularly going around killing
multiple people in schools, malls, home!!!
Banning guns will make it much harder for the average crim t and will make it virtually impossible for teenagers to get them.
4. Please refrain from calling others stupid, or less intelligent when they dont agree with your viewpoint, it in fact works in the opposite way as
Once again if I offended sincere apologies, sometimes I forget there is the occasional gun nut like yourself who isnt rude
Trust me I take a hell of
alot more than I give in the rudeness catergory when discussing gun issues LOL
Again, find a way to magically remove ALL guns from existence and i will be your strongest supporter, until then i will remain in reality.
And until gun owners like yourself decide to give them up its never gonna happen and guns and gun deaths everywhere is the reality you choose.
But you and the other 190 million Americans who dont need a gun for hunting keep them JUST IN CASE you need them for a home invasion,
While your sitting there snug and warm with your rifle or AR or whatever just think next time you see these massacres the guns being used most likely
came from the closet of a responsible gun owner like yourself
