    Adam: "How do you propose we do that?"
    Girl: "With gun buybacks?"
    Common Sense Me: "If you make all firearms illegal for citizens they 'll face jail time for possession, therefore they 'll be much more willing to hand them over, whether or not they 're compensated. Illegalizing firearms will also put an end to production of ammo, which should statistically reduce gun violence over time, until it is completely eliminated. There 's a very simple rule you can follow for the law. When you give a private citizen the power to end other people's lives at will and with the simple press of a button that may be a bit too much freedom. However, I see no reason against legalizing recreational drugs, as they are most likely to have an effect on the person themselves."

    I agree with a lot of this. However, I believe Adam would have a lot more credibility if he interviewed conservative researchers, and not only California liberal professors (Professor Lott, for instance). Adam is also dishonest in trying to portray ALL NRA members as politicized fanatics who will not ever consider compromise. The truth is there are groups of people in our country who would LOVE to disarm us, for their own selfish reasons. And that, even if anyone could, the criminals would still be armed. If the mayority of gun violence is suicide or urban crime, then start there. Find ways to deal with the reasons people resort to violence and leave the decent, law-abiding citizen alone, and protected. We don't own guns ONLY for self defense, we love the shooting sports and we truly believe an armed citizenry is a road block to tyranny.

    The funniest (or the saddest) thing is even if all these 'pro-ban'/'pro-control' activist got their wish, it wouldn't change much. There's too many guns in the US and gun-culture is too deep routed. Maybe it'd be better if the 2nd amendment never existed, but you can't turn back time. Media never wants to talk about real solutions, deaths and attacks are only used as a political tool. There's no morality in this.

      a) not all guns were band. Gun ownership is actually higher right now then it waw when they introduced 'the ban'
      b) 90% of gun murder is done with illegall weapons. Delegilizing guns does 0 to change it
      c) culture is the problem. Gangs are rife and there is gangsta culture
      d) look at UK and their recent knife crime problem. The problem isn't the weapon but the PEOPLE who want to murder. They will find a way. Now UK is thinking about banning sharp tipped knives (no joke). Yeah. The problem are the shitty people with shitty culture. I don't care about your skin color. I care about who you are. And if you are a gang member then you are a low life.

  • Simon Cohen

    How does the second amendment not guarantee an individuals right to bear arms?
    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
    The wording overtly states "the right of the people"... The founding fathers fundamentally believed that rights originate from an individualized context, thats the whole point of the constitution right? Outline rights that must fundamentally be protected for every individual. So at what point does the 2nd amendment become about guaranteeing the militia's rights as a group, and not actually the individuals within it. A militia couldnt exist without the individuals who comprise it.

    Lmao government wants to clear out guns but doesn't stop guns from being made.
    First of all, if guns are out of stock, government can force all the residents to open the door for the government to check the house. It's slow but it's better.
    You can keep selling guns, but the owners of the gun will keep buying if you keep confiscating.

    There isnt a SINGLE WORD in the constitution saying americans have the right to own or carry guns. Not since the NRA simply decided to interpret it like that. But there is NOTHING except peoples faith and belief. In reality police will shoot you dead or take your gun if they see you have one. Even in your own god damn house.

  • Michael Song
    Michael Song Month ago

    Actually, I'm not all that interested in "feeling safe". I already feel safe. I just want to own guns, because having that much power with me feels good. The very fact that I have the power to point at something and kill it with impunity feels damn good. Not that I am going to go out and start killing things, but having it feels good. Of course, I'm never going to say that in public, since that'll be counterproductive against what I want.

  • Michael Song

    People can't seem to differentiate between racism and racial profiling. If there's solid evidence supporting that certain ethnic group (such as black panther era) is carrying gun illegally, then that's racial profiling. If done without any kind of evidence, then that's racism.
    For example, gov may indicate that poor people in particular area are carrying guns illegally. But if those certain areas are full of black people, then the black people yell out "racism".

    There are no quick fixes for the US on this issue, the country is too sick and too far gone when it comes to guns for that. But however gradual solutions need to be found and implemented. The situation is already unacceptable and it's only going to get worse. Yet all a disturbing number of gun owners do when there's another mass shooting or the huge problems with gun deaths and violence is brought up is worry mostly about their oh so precious guns.

    I think we have here awesome laws for gun control. They are strict enough to protect against gun violance but also made so they won't bully gun owners too much. There are 5 types of gun license - for collectors, sporstmen, hunters, for work that requires guns, and finally for self protection. There are also 4 gun categories. And every category of gun license allows you to buy and use certain guns and ammo from different category of weapons. To get a gun license on needs to undergo a background check and a psychological examination and to get desired category of gun license he needs to pass tests that are theoretical, and practical like shooting at target and prooving that you can handle the respective weapon you'll be using with that gun license. Only cathegory E allows concieled carry. Otherwise weapons needs to be transported unloaded and hidden.

    Very nice and informative video but why there that white guit thing again ? Yes americans were racist in the past and that is just it. I don't see how black people should be some special group in this debate regarding gun rights. In the past people were racist and were finding various excuses to mistreat black people including gun laws. Why did there have to be that example with the black guy getting shot by a police officer ? He was racist and found a reason to kill him easy as that. This stuff however isn't really problem today so why should it be relevant. Why is the black woman in the video so hurt like it all happened to her and all others are so sorry like they oppressed her or something. If you don't want to be racist you should treat everyperson the same, ignore that there is a difference in skin colour. I don't understand how was this neccessary. And the sad music and all Jesus....

    Australian gun lawas quietly are becoming less restrictive and gun violence is slowly going up, Sydney had two gun related terror attacks I can think of, on top of my head in the past years. I think the recent wave of US shootings keeps Urban Australians smug, but I think laws are slowly loosening thanks to the too much influence Bob Katter and his racist buddies have.

    America can at least require background checks and registration for all guns at the national level. Australia has *more* guns now than we did before the buyback. It's just that they're all registered and the owner has to take responsibility when a piece goes missing. Every time a gun is sold or changes hands, the government has to know about it. Automatic weapons are banned because while handguns are responsible for the most deaths, handguns can't really be used effectively in mass shootings. This at least eliminates the fear surrounding schools and public spaces.
    Requiring everyone to register their guns would mean that there would be no need to stop people in the streets. Just to ask for a gun license.
    The racism can't be solved with these methods but if they are implemented at the national level then it at least helps. America's racism runs far too deep to solve with one movement, it needs to be across the board. America needs better trained and better vetted cops, with stronger penalties for misconduct, abolish for-profit prisons (as we also should) and implement stronger protections for minorities (ditto) as well as allocate more funding to pro-bono representation, abolish plea deals, have emergency hotlines (we had one for Indigenous people in custody) and better welfare and mental health intervention to help stop the school to prison pipeline. This is something Australia needs to work on as well, our advantage is that Australia is much smaller. Imho America is just too big to effectively govern and would be better off being about three separate countries.
    Complaining about how difficult it is helps no one. Something needs to be done. Then maybe you all can give us some ideas on how to solve our refugee crisis and offshore processing human rights violations.

    FFS, America might have 84 times the amount of guns that we here in Australia have but it also has over 100 times our population so as a proportion we had larger ownership, that means it's cheaper on the government to buy back AND even at market rates guns are and were always cheaper in America so that whole point is invalid.

    Ya. That happened. (
    Compulsary buybacks are NOT voluntary. (And dishonest claims to the contrary notwithstanding, "a good price" is NOT offered; it's generally been 25% of fair market value. The Aussie saying "full market value was a flat out lie.)
    "66% support stronger laws" was based on a biased sample group. (Actually SEVERAL biased sample groups.) No large scale double blind study has ever been conducted.
    "93 people die every day if gun violence" is not an appropriate stat to invoke; 62 are suicides, and as Australia proves, denial of guns does NOT result in fewer suicides. (
