    People who use guns are straight up pussy, you are literally depending on a metal device that shoots to get your point across rather then depending on your physical abilities. Put the guns down and throw hands or feet or whatever kind of combat technique you like
    But wether i like it or not the world is rotten, we live in a society where people doing cruel things are something to brag about

    Whether you are pro-gun or anti-gun, if you believe there needs to be sensible gun reform legislation put in place you have to power to help make that a reality!! Mitch McConnell and many of the Republican Senators running the Senate, who are lap dogs for the NRA, are up for re-election in 2020...

    My belief is that weapons are here it is a technological advancement like vehicles and computers. An advancement that isn't always respected as it should be like every other piece of technology. I hold my firm belief that any piece of technology should be treated with ample respect. The way to respect an item is not banning it from the general public. I don't have the answers. I just know that I don't want my rights taken, or taken for granted

  • joel

    We're just going to ignore that no one disagreed when she brought up the gun show loop hole. Yeah they can do that but it's illegal. You have to have a background check and fill out a for to transfer the firearm. Not very pro-gun people which makes me very suspicious.

    • joel
      joel 16 hours ago

      @TombWraith I did look it up. There was one Washington post article that touched on it specifically but nothing that was an actual paper on it. It appears that there's not much data on private sales and homicides by that weapon. Which makes sense because it's difficult to find that specific of information. Just link it. All sources have bias, as long as it's not some news article citing itself for the statistics.

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 16 hours ago

      @joel If you want that source, then look it up. Anything I send you would not be good enough for you. Find a source you think is valid, and read up on it.

      joel 17 hours ago

      @TombWraith yeah that's a pretty bold claim. With a little bit of research you'll find that statistics like that aren't clear. It's not easy to find a clear answer. I'd like a source of some sort. I couldn't find anything on that specific statistic.

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 18 hours ago

      @joel Plenty of criminals purchase the firearm privately. Most crimes are performed with legal firearms, although perhaps not legal to the person in control of it.

    • joel
      joel 19 hours ago

      @TombWraith yes but no. Yes you don't need background checks but you do have to transfer the firearm. No criminal is going to legally purchase a firearm or anything like that.

    As a strong 2nd amendment supporter I am disapointed in the "pro gun" cast. The anti gun side presented multiple arguments that could have been easily demonstrated to be inaccurate or false. Like the gun show loop hole myth, although no one specifically used the term "gun show loop hole" it was implied that background checks are not part of the purchasing process at a gun show. My very first pistol purchase was at a gun show in AZ and I assure you I had to fill out a federal 4473 form and was subjected to a backround check before I could proceed with a purchase.

    • jb664q
      jb664q 2 days ago

      @TombWraith I understnad where you are coming from. I should have made the distinction between dealer and private sales.

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 2 days ago

      @jb664q Yes, I understand that. I just have an issue with people calling it a myth, because its not. Its just really bad nomenclature.

    • jb664q
      jb664q 2 days ago

      @TombWraith then you'd be referring to a private sale, which can take place anywhere not just at a gun show. The overwhelming majority of guns sold at gun shows are sold by licensed FFL dealers who are required to conduct background checks.

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 2 days ago

      Background checks are not always part of purchasing firearms at shows. It depends on who and where. None of my guns have had a background check because it wasn't mandatory.

    This may be hard hitting for people because I am not an american, but I think there is way more to it then just having guns or not. Lets just put it this way, in Europe, guns are not allowed. We haven’t had school shootings, we haven’t had massacres, etc... . That is why I am anti-gun in Europe, but I don’t know about that in the USA because it would take so long to get all those guns of it system while at the same time leaving other people vulnerable.... I am just happy I dont have to be afraid to go to school.

    None of these people gave the solution of restricting types of weapons being sold. If people wanna protect themselves or their family its all good buy a glock but they shouldnt be able to buy freaking ar-15s with bump stocks or m4s or klashnikovs. People can even buy freaking rocket launchers and high powered shotguns and sniper rifles. Pistols are enough for protection put laws to take away the rest

    • Dakka Dakka
      Dakka Dakka 3 days ago +1

      And also m4s or aks are not any more dangerous than similar firearms. Having shot traditional long guns and ar-platform firearms, its mainly a difference of weight and comfort.

      You don't need a license in most states. Depends on what type of gun you're buying. You may need a CCL if you wanna carry, or a handgun license to purchase a handgun.
      You don't need anything but a state ID to purchase a private firearm in most states.

    Why does old dumpy looking people think they could snipe any robber/attacker coming at them? Obviously a criminal will be BETTER at using a gun. Having weapon in your house increases the danger to your family and it's sad to hear these ingrained views coming from a so called "developed" country.

  • From_ashes_to_fire
    From_ashes_to_fire 9 days ago

    I feel like a lot of people in the comments are missing the main point the anti-gun side is making:
    It's not that guns should be banned but that there should be more control around owning/purchasing a firearm.
    You can agree or disagree with that statement, but from my understanding - no one on the anti-gun side wanted to actively ban all gun ownership by civilians.

    Will stricter laws stop hardcore criminals from getting guns? Definitely not, but I think it could lead to less school shootings as well as other tragedies
    If something isn't commonly accessible it becomes a less likely means to an end.
    I'll use an example: In my country they have changed to sizing of paracetamol packages, so you can only buy a very small pack now with few pills in each (unless you have a prescription). Is this slightly inconvinient for the average Joe? Absolutely! But the amount of suicide attempts by paracetamol has drastically decreased (very likely due to this interference)
    Could people over time stock up paracetamol tablets to commit suicide? Definitly. But it would take planning and determination way in advance - like if stricter gun laws were in place. People could still get the gun but it would take more time and effort, and the "initiative" might wear of (as well as obviously preventing people who shouldn't be able to own a gun from getting their hands on one, but I feel like that point is fairly obvious)

    • dave ray

      I could see that being a more valid point if school shooting rates had gone up over the last decade or two. Realistically, the percentage of school shootings hasn’t really changed. Mainstream media however reports every one that takes place now. Gives it the effect of being more prevalent when it’s really not.

    i live in Australia where there are gun laws. you never know what a person may be capable with or without a fire weapon but I must say I definitely feel safer in a place where I know that a large majority of the population don’t have the ability to shoot me right then and there. Australia has strict laws set in place when it comes to guns which tbh is the reason why we are considered one of the safest countries in the world. so yes change can happen and I also believe there will be a lesser need to protect yourself if there is a smaller chance of you being in danger in the first place.

      Yes = by all means think. Today law enforcement not only has firearms = they have weaponry on a level far above what your average person can obtain. Despite this crime still abounds. So what does that tell you??? It tells me that armed law enforcement is not a deterrent to crime after all as there are armed police all over and crime still exists. You underestimate human nature I'm afraid. Desperate people or else people motivated by profit will go to great lengths to obtain what they desire = guns or no guns. Have a nice day.

      Depends on where you go and who you buy it from. Private sellers often sell at shows, and there is no mandatory background check on private sales in most states.
      Crowder was deliberately biased in that he went to shows that did not allow private sellers. Then there would be background checks. That is certainly not cross country.

    If you think about it the reason americans haven't wiped russia off the face of the earth was because the russians also have nuclear weapons.

    You can’t buy a gun from a gun show without getting a background check. It’s simply a lie the media plays to get the focus on us gun owners as being the problem. The Gun Show Loophole is false.

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 12 days ago

      Yes you can. Private sales take place at gun shows and there is no federal mandatory background check on private sales and no state mandatory background check on private sales in 38 out of 50 states.
      The gun show loophole exists. Its just bad nomenclature.

    If we ban guns that means the good people won't have a way to defend themselves. Bad people will always find a way to get a hold of guns no matter what. People are the problem... not guns.

    I feel like the man in the blue shirt's question about how we can change the amount of guns that are out there was never answered. People just changed the topic lol. There is no realistic way to cut back on the guns falling into the wrong hands. It isn't the guns you need to worry about but the hands their falling into. Criminals are always going to be around and unless you can flip a switch to eliminate all of them instantaneously gun violence is never going away. If you make all guns illegal (this has been stated before) guess who is the demographic you're catering to... The criminals. As long as there are bad people with guns we also need good people with guns. I do support the 5000 psych questionare thing though.

    I think there should be stricter gun laws such as a ban on fully automatic weapons but weapons such as pistols should be allowed. People shouldn’t have more fire power than police. You don’t need a weapon that shoots 600 bullets a minute to defend your self.

    • Gone Far Afield
      Gone Far Afield 13 days ago

      Great thought Julian. Fully automatic weapons aren't legal unless they were made before 1986. That leaves about 100,000 of them out there. Because there is a fixed supply, the cheapest ones you can get now are about $7000, but yes they're still legal if you go through a 12 month background check and submit fingerprints and photos to the ATF.

    The gun show loophole is a lye people! You cannot go to a gun show and buy a firearm without having your ccw prior. Jesus how many people have to literally go state to state debunking this myth. If you cannot buy a firearm in stores, you wont be able to buy one at a gun show. Trust me I've tried in multiple states and been denied. I got my ccw when I was able, and now I can. But you absolutely CANNOT, ANYWHERE, without your concealed carry, permit to purchase, or ccw(concealed carry weapons permit) some states know it as ccw.

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 13 days ago

      First of all it's lie.
      Second of all, its not a lie. Its just really bad nomenclature.
      Not all states have a CCW. You don't need a CCW in open carry states. The gun show loophole refers to the private sales that can and do take place at shows.
      You have to be an FFL dealer to sell at a store. You do NOT have to be an FFL dealer to sell at a show in a majority of states.
      38 out of the 50 states put NO restrictions on private sales. If you were denied a firearm at a show it was because you were either in a state that restricts private sales or you were buying from an FFL dealer.
      NONE of my firearms have ever had background checks, because they were purchased privately. All you need is a valid state ID. My only background check (concerning firearms) came when I applied for a handgun license.

    Bottom line. Where I live in England there were 27 murders in 2017 whereas in America there was 17000. There's only one difference and that's guns. I get it that if guns where made illegal criminals would probably still have guns but we need a way to reduce murders and the only way that America can do that is through removing guns. I went on holiday to America last year and I never felt safe when I was there and where I went was a richish area. There's lots of crime in my area and I feel safe here when I go out. America is in a bubble that it needs to get out of.

      @Gone Far Afield yeh true. London has its own micro climate though. Most of Britain is very safe. I live in a 'rough' area in my city and Ive never heard of any knife crime around let alone guns. Just depends on the place I guess.

    • Gone Far Afield
      Gone Far Afield 13 days ago

      It's more complicated than that, isn't it? Violent crime was worse in London than New York last year, and now you're starting to ban knives. Canada and Mexico have higher murder rates than the US and they have much stricter gun laws. I'm not saying that there's not a problem, but I think it's much deeper than the number of guns.

    Guns = School shootings. Mass shootings. Revenge killings. Hostage situations + murders with other weapons
    No guns = angry Republicans + murders with other weapons
    Reducing some of the death? Why not?

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 9 days ago

      @Skulldetta If the entire contry was a gun free zone, you would see a rise in gun homicide.
      Also, most school shootins are performed with legally purchased firearms. You cannot carry a firearm over state lines. Thats a felony right there.
      When you restrict citizens from owning guns, you only help criminals.

    • Skulldetta
      Skulldetta 10 days ago

      Because all the other states don't have those strict gun laws and anyone who wants to gain access to an assault rifle can just drive 30 miles to a red state and buy one?
      Gun-free zones are pretty much useless unless the entire country consists of one.

    • Lizzie Allen
      Lizzie Allen 11 days ago

      +Marigold X You reduce the number of criminals killed but the number of civilians killed because they have no way to protect themselves from the criminals who surprise surprise still kept their guns even though they're illegal, that's not reducing some of the death.

    • TombWraith
      TombWraith 13 days ago +1

      It wouldn't reduce death. In fact, it would make death much more likely.
      Ever wonder why those school shootinga happen in states woth strict gun laws?
