    I like guns but we definitely need more strict policies, good discussions like this, and education. the fact that someone can walk to Walmart and get one no problems asked is pretty insane.

    Like all laws... there should be a middle ground. Have guns but regulated to be kept out of the wrong hands. Unfortunately there are individuals of the "pro gun" crowd that believe the "give an inch take a mile" argument that is just leaving everyone in a stalemate.

    How do expect to have a productive conversation if you aren't willing to go into it with an open mind. I want you to change your mind but I am not willing to offer you that same curtesy. Basically everyone says no to the first question. Doesn't matter what the conversation is about now. Everyone just wasted their time.

    Pro gun. Shall not be infringed. I have no idea why the people that advocate the murder of millions of babies a year, feel like they should be able to dictate gun rights. The ability to walk into an abortion clinic knowing you are about to end an innocent life, is exactly the same as being able to walk into a crowded place and commiting mass murder. It's the ability to turn off that part of your mind, or block that part of your soul so you can do it with no remorse. So if you want to have the moral highground, and abortion. I promise you I will hand over my guns if that happens.

      As someone who has been to many gunshows and is very pro-gun, the "gun show loophole" just refers to the ability to buy a gun at a show without a background check. And it exists. It just isn't a loophole nor is it restricted to shows

      Not necessarily. Depends on who and where you buy the gun. The loophole refers to a private sale at a show, which you do not need a background check for.

    when I read the comments, the thing that upsets me the most is how many people see to have given up on society/humanity in general, writing stuff like: "it doesn't matter what you try, you will never be able to stop gun violence" etc. How about coming up with solutions for a change? Because there actually are, societies can change for the better, history has shown us that. I mean we are humans for f**** sake, we invented planes, medicine, we even flew to the moon. I am convinced that we can find solutions for gun violence, as well, if we set our minds to it.

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla Day ago

      How about reading the comment by Silver Mist below. Mankind has attempted to ban numerous things in the past - drugs, alcohol, etc.. In every instance people still obtained what they wanted while it ultimately drove further crime and violence. That is not to say there is nothing to be done. It rather demonstrates the difference between people who try to visualize a idyllic fantasy world vs. those who exist in reality and as such temper their "wants" with obtainable goals. Gun violence is not a result of firearms. It is driven by criminality and mental illness = while those things are perpetuated as a result of human nature and cultural mores. So if you really want to deal with gun violence = focus less on "da gun" and more on the individual pulling the trigger or reside yourself to the reality that you can pass all the laws you want and criminals will continue to ignore them and still obtain firearms. This is not Star Trek = it's the real world.

    They really forget the fact that it’s so fking easy to get gun illegally? It’s even simpler to buy parts and assemble it yourself. So by restricting your normal law abiding citizens from owning a gun to protect themselves, you’re putting them at risk with less self defense. The thugs and criminals and psychopaths will always have a way to obtain firearms even with those laws and restrictions. So restricting guns shouldn’t even be a solution here wtf

      Might want to rephrase your question. A gun owner can "use" their firearm basically however they want. There are however laws which regulate access to firearms as well as places you can have them. Those can vary from State to State however. At the Federal level however there are laws concerning purchase/sales and ownership as well as transportation across State lines. So you need to be more specific.

    Taking guns away does not stop bad people from doing bad things
    taking Guns and other weapons away have historically led to tyranny
    Every Gun Show makes you take a background check regardless of how rich you are.
    fully Automatic weapons have been taken off the market by the government in the 1980s and the Tommy gun was banned from the market in 1935.
    for those who don't know the difference, semi-automatic means one trigger pull= one bullet shoots out while automatic means one trigger pull=multiple bullets spray out.
    the majority of mass shootings are done with handguns/pistols, not rifles.

    I am pro gun. The fact is that banning something makes it worse. This is due to the reason that whenever something gets banned, all it does is create a black market for it. This would happen with guns. And let me ask u, do u think there would be MORE gun violence if guns were “banned”. I do because then the bad peoples with horrible intent would be more violent cause the6 know that no one else has a gun to defend themselves with.

    In my case I come from a country who's weapons are not allowed(Portugal) and I I'm not a minority so I never needed the use of a gun to protect myself. But my reality is that Portugal isn't a violent country and I don't know how it is in the USA because the mass shootings weren't with my people so I didn't feel it in my skin. But at the end of the day I think people should be able to protect themselves. Y would really like to hear you perspectives so pls comment because comunication is key to not having violence

    ZX6 RIDER 6 days ago +2

    I honestly believe that if you take guns out of legal owners hands (or everyone’s hands) how would police protect and serve? What about individuals who hunt for food? The reason guns are legal is because it provides checks and balances in regards of a government going rogue.. I do not wish to hurt anyone that is not a threat. But at the same time legal and responsible gun owners should protect those who can’t protect themselves as well. I have made peace with the other side of the argument of the anti gun perspective. The presence of a gun (not necessarily using a gun to defend yourself) will help a lot of individuals think twice about there choice to harm others. I love you all and may God bless you in your future journeys in life. Good topic...

      Ken MacDonald do you say that violence was staggering before guns? You realize the first gun was made on 1364, so in case you don’t know there isn’t much factual evidence that was before 1364. So you really don’t know how violence could be back then, there are secondary documents and stuff but it’s secondary and most secondary sources aren’t that accurate compared to a first hand.
      And you say that they prevent a lot of violence. Alright I’ll kind of agree to that to an extent, how about school shoots? Mass shootings? Murders 67% of single homicide cases are used by firearms and if there are multiple victims Is 79%. So it’s not always to prevent violence. So I’ll go with what we both say and say it’s half and half.
      Yeah but too many wrong people have guns. I’m ok with guns to an extent I really think the process to have a gun should be way more complicated then how it is now. Too many mentally unstable people have guns. So I highly disagree with guns but I will go to an extent that some people should have then if you are qualified.
      Wait tf. When did I say “government employees” oh wait I kind of did but I mean like police officials or like detectives who’s main job is to protect people or like people in the military because obviously 😂. Government officials like a major or like the president shouldn’t have guns either. Only people who there main job should be allowed guns.
      It really don’t feel like repeating myself because typing makes my hand cramp up so I’ll shorten up what I said earlier. It was 1364 there isn’t much factual first hand evidence from before that.

      +Violet "guns have been around for centuries"
      Sure. And in short supply till relatively recently. Before guns, rates of violence were staggering. As guns became more available, rates of violence declined.
      "So no one really knows what it would be like without guns."
      Is this serious? Are you saying that historical scholarship isn't a thing and there's no way to know what happened in the past?
      "And guns create lots of violence"
      False. Guns PREVENT a lot of violence.
      "I’m saying that like officers or people in the police branch should have guns to protect"
      Of course. Protection is the primary reason it's a right for EVERYONE.
      "I just don’t think anyone should be able to get a gun"
      Government employees killed hundreds of millions of people in the twentieth century and you're saying it's safer to make sure only government employees have guns? Of course, that's the type of grossly ignorant statement I would expect someone to say who said "no one really knows what it would be like without guns".
      The historical record is clear: increased rates of gun ownership dramatically lowers rates of violence.

      People are like electricity = they follow the path of least resistance. Accordingly to (correctly) lay the gun violence issue on the doorstep of suicide and criminality rather than legal usage would force the gun control advocates to address the social problems which drive those suicides and that criminality. Naturally they do not want to open that can of worms. So they instead incrementally try to limit legal access to firearms - which of course does not impact criminals who do not follow the law in any tangible fashion = so that they can thump their chests and say they are trying to deal with the issue. It is always easier to attack a "foil" than deal with real people and problems.

    Americans see owning a gun as a right, to protect themselves and their freedom. But you can’t own a tank or a rocket to protect your freedom 😂 the best way to protect people is to get rid of all guns. You’re so much more likely to be killed by a gun if you own one

      You are only seeing what you want to see I'm afraid. Australia is an island nation. Accordingly a person can not simply walk over the border as they can with others. As relates to gun control. It is true that Australia passed a gun control measure in response to the Port Arthur incidence - Australia has no Constitutional protections for firearms by the way. More importantly however is that most of Australia's gun violence - like in the US - is due to drug gang activity. So Australia aggressively cracked down on the motorcycle gangs that were perpetuating the gun violence as a result of the drug trade. They also severely limited access for mental health reasons. So all of above contributed to the decline in mass shootings - not just the gun law. So the gun control groups misrepresent the facts when they cite Australia as they consistently fail to make note of the other things done in addition to passing a gun bill. That of course is disingenuous for their part.

    As somebody who is very much for gun control reform, I can say that both sides made really good points. But I'm sorry, complaining about a psych eval? Saying you shouldn't have to do it? Get over yourself. I understand not everyone who wants to buy a gun has serious and dangerous psychological issues. Obviously. But the issue is that we don't always know who does. A psych eval is to do our best to figure out in whose hands a firearm could be dangerous. And if taking the time to do the psych eval and answer an annoyingly long questionnaire could stop potential unnecessary killings and mass shootings, it's worth it. It'll amounts to matter of hours of your life. I understand it's inconvenient. But you being inconvenienced for a short period of time is a far lesser issue than classrooms full of dead students, clubs and and Synagogues full of dead minorities, concerts that lead to multiple funerals, or any other avoidable gun travesty I'm leaving out.

      "Saying you shouldn't have to do it?"
      The right to keep and bear arms is a natural right explicitly recognized by the constitution. By the very definition of rights, NO ONE needs to explain why they are exercising their rights. It is up to the government to prove why someone's rights should be denied. If you think someone is too mentally unstable to have a gun, fine, prove it. The burden of proof is on YOU.

    When you carry... the gun is the last thing you want to involve. It’s not like every single incident you just go flailing around your gun. That’s the whole point of conceal carry and taking the class. We know that the only time you can and should use it is when your life is in imminent danger. I’m a mom with a new 4 month old baby. You think that without a gun I would be able to stop a grown man from talking me and my child if I didn’t have a weapon? Hell no. It is my obligation to live for my family and come home to meet my husband and my baby. No one will defend your life like you will.

    Anti-gun people just are blinded which again the idea was brought upon by liberals. U lmk when someone breaks into your house possibly hurts your family yea maybe fist/cuff him but I like my second amendment for that reason. Violence happens all the time u need guns without a doubt. Big countries will fall without any weapons enough said

      +Annika Langstrumpf Because of America's high black population. Even so, Whites are still safer in America than in Europe and blacks are safer in America than in Europe. The rate of gun homicides for both races is lower in America than in Europe. Since black gun homicide rates are much higher than White homicide rates, America's gun homicide rate is higher than Europe's, but ONLY because of America's high black population.

      If you're going to chime in like you know what you're talking about, don't make it clear you have no idea what you're talking about, Annika.

      I lived in Germany for 2 years. Despite the competency of the polizei = there were still places at night where you needed to be careful. So while police will as a rule try to protect people - ultimately as noted they can not be everywhere and have no legal responsibility to protect you. Sometimes a person only has what they do to protect themselves = and that is why many gun owners prefer to have a firearm. It of course does not guaranty a successful outcome. It rather merely gives you a chance. Self defense is an inherent right of all sentient creatures. Gruss Gott. 😉

      I hope you realize that even law enforcement mistakenly kills civilians every year. The totals are hard to estimate however as many police departments are not required to report those events. On a side note I would encourage you to read up on the LA riots. Note how when civil order broke down and sections of the city erupted in violence = the people trapped in those areas were on their own. It took a while for law enforcement to finally get organized and coordinate with the National Guard before they entered the impacted areas and began patrolling the streets. In short = the police have no Constitutional requirement to protect the private citizenry as they are there to uphold the laws and protect the Government. That is why you can not sue law enforcement for failing to respond to a 911 call or protecting you. So when things go South = you are on you own for the most part. Something to consider.

    Guns cannot be banned because of the 2nd amendment, but they can be limited to a degree. Most people who are anti-gun do not want to get all guns banned but want to limit it.

    I get irritated that the one guy associates protecting one’s self with owning a gun. That violence is brought by guns. The one lady who experienced the assault likely experienced it at knife point. All an automatic weapon is, is something that can be used to inflict damage repeatedly.... a bat would work as long as your able to keep swinging it.

    • Ken MacDonald

      "That violence is brought by guns."
      Bald faced lie. Violent crime has been on a centuries long decline because the strong ALWAYS brought violent to the weak, but guns can give the weak the power to defend against the strong.

      Except that guns are NOT the only means to commit crime and murder, as you, being in England, should know. Violent crime and murders increased after guns were banned. That gun violence and murders declined didn't make the total violent crime and murders go down.

    Laws will not help anything. Criminals don’t obey laws. When “the man” comes knocking and taking guns it’ll only be from law abiding citizens. Then when there is a shift in “power” so to speak bad guys will be more willing to do harm when they don’t have to worry if there is a good guy with a gun ready to stand up for themselves or somebody else.

    That was not worth my time watching at all. Nothing was even discussed. If those were the best clips with the most information you need to redo it with people who can actually come up with a coherent argument for either side. If you are anti-gun go try and buy a gun before you act and spread that obtaining a gun is easy. Go to a gun show or a gun store and try and walk out with a lot of guns. Most states have restrictions on the amount of handguns.

    I'm from Austria and that's probably why I will never fully understand the pro-gun side. Here it is so out of the norm to own a gun (unless the person is a police officer or hunter or something) that the argument about having to protect yourself is not really understandable for me. Because to my mind it seems if there are stricter laws or something you wouldn't have to protect yourself. However, I'm nor from the US neither have I ever had to defend myself so I don't know what my opinion would be like otherwise.
