Reason #82838383837373828 that marijuana should be legal.

Edit: If some people on that list above had marijuana instead we probably would have 80% fewer incidents.

Exactly. So, it shouldn't seem ridiculous that people want to make an effort to keep some weapons out of certain people's hands.

People like you fail to understand the arguments you oppose. Very rarely are people making a case that the gun, itself, is the issue. Their issue is how available those guns are to the wrong people.

So, for some people, the solution is to just get rid of all firearms and not allow anyone to have them. Going that route does limit the number of wrong people getting their hands on firearms.

For other people the solution is to try and identify who the wrong people are at the point of sale and restrict that sale.

For other people the solution is to allow anyone and everyone to have any gun they please and if the bad person pulls out their gun they will be met by 5 good people pulling out their guns. These people hope that would be a deterrent and cause bad people to stop doing bad things. (Or they just want to see swift, vigilante justice)

Those seem to generally be the 3 notions happening here and every single one of them is Person-centric.

Also, the whole "People will just kill with butter knives or stones, then! Better outlaw butter knives and stones!" This argument is stupid retarded. If you were unarmed and approached by a person with ill intent...would you prefer they were armed with a gun? A knife? A stone? If they are armed with a gun, then you're odds of survival are much lower than the other two. Why? Because a gun is a fantastic killing tool Far more effective than a knife or a pipe bomb or roundhouse kicks.



A gun is a fantastic killing tool. I agree. One could argue the effectiveness versus a bomb. Also note that it was you that jumped to the extremes of "butter knives" and "round house kicks". I simply pointed out that if someone intends to do harm, they WILL, despite the availability of guns.

I voted for the 3rd option, in case you were interested. Or if jumping to conclusions is your thing, that's cool. I'm all for stricter screening processes. I think there should be a psych test quite honestly. Your everyday, average gun owner is not a threat to society.

My argument was/is aimed more at the "BAN ALL GUNS" crowd, which does exist. Just because that's not your view point doesn't mean it's not out there.

I just agreed that there exists a crowd that wants to ban all guns. Right there in the post you quoted. What you seem to be missing is that the "Ban Everything" crowd understands that people are doing the killing. Which is why they want everything banned. They see that as the most effective way to keep the guns out of the hands of those people. Are they right? Are they wrong? Maybe. Bans have worked in other places. But, it'd be much more difficult to get it to work here. Which is why something along the lines of Option 3 seems like the best medicine for this country and culture.

Also, the "People kill people" slogan is condescension stupidity designed to avoid the point. Every time I hear someone say it I mark that person as unable to think for themselves...since they are instead just regurgitating NRA nonsense.

Yep, other places haven't had as loose of restrictions as we do. Making a ban possible. Tightening the restriction on who can get guns is definitely the way to go here. Background check, psych test, some amount of hours weapons training (not the two hour CWP class). That's a start.

For a carry permit I would say people should have to re take atleast the psych and training to re-up.

I agree. And I think the best way to enforce it would be a very stiff penalty for breaking these laws.

"For other people the solution is to try and identify who the wrong people are at the point of sale and restrict that sale."


This is a start, I'm NOT for any ban on specific weapons that are not already currently banned. But the process of ownership needs to be looked at imo.

"Banning all guns" will never work due to the loose gun controls this country has had for years. In that scenario the only people that would have guns are the government, criminals, and vigilantes. While law abiding citizens are stripped of their rights to protect themselves and their homes/families. Imo, that sounds like a terrible idea. Also, who is going to 'collect' all the guns? The government is going to go knocking on doors of registered gun owners?

"Arming everyone" is a bad idea that would never work either imo. First, not everyone wants a gun. Next, guns are dangerous in hands of the untrained.

Stricter background checks and longer wait times are a good start towards a long term solution. But that doesn't mitigate the immediate problem of stopping/reducing the frequency of these school shootings. That must be looked at and overhauled as well in addition to gun control. We have to protect our interests and improve the response. Doing both would help serve as a deterrent imo.

You just proved the point. Take away guns, and the crazies will come after people with knives. The theory some people go with is that, you know what? It takes a whole lot longer to kill 30 students with a knife than it does with an assault rifle. So I suppose there is a better chance that somebody stops them before it gets out of hand.

But the converse is also true. If every person in that room ALSO has a gun, then the dude with the assault rifle isn't going to get very far. Same/same. The problem is that we create an environment where the criminal/murderer/crazy knows that he is the only person in the place with a gun. Check mate.

The win is in the middle with restrictive laws and hefty sentences.

If you come at me with a knife, the chances are likely 50/50 that you will die. If you came at me with a gun, the chance is about 100% that I will die. That's a big difference. I never feel in danger at all in the countries I visit that ban guns. The US is far more dangerous than any of them.

Really? Even when they were burning down hundreds of churches in one night in Jakarta? You still felt safer then than being in the US?
