But what about the "something something soldiers protect our freedom" nonsense?

"A rapid-fire, magazine-fed automatic rifle designed for infantry use."

"designed for infantry use"

So you tell me why anyone outside of the military needs one.

Semi automatic AR-15's aren't by definition assault rifles, by the way.

Nobody needs an assault rifle, which is why it's pretty difficult to get one. It requires a heavy tax and a very long waiting period.

As for why people should have them, just for sporting use and what the 2nd Amendment was supposed to be used for.

Just because the military uses a particular firearm doesn't mean it's more dangerous.

I get that argument, but keeping some law abiding citizens from getting guns can actually help the situation.

Just having less guns around in general makes it harder for criminals to get their hands on them. I'm not saying we should get rid of all guns by any means, but maybe there should be a quota, where only a certain number of guns are allowed to be licensed.

I'm not denying that criminals will find ways to get their hands on guns anyway, but do you see how having less of them around could help, even if only a little?

Also, the fact that an ordinary citizen can own an assault rifle needs to be dealt with, and I think that's something they'll definitely work on.

I just find it interesting that most people can't define "assault rifle/weapon", but uses the term anyway.

Everyone thinks that firefighters are heroes and whatnot, while nobody cares about EMS.

The girl started avoiding me the next day, and told me it "wasn't working out". It turns out she only agreed to go out with me because she was really desperate for male attention.

Yep. I'm not sure if you have heard, but illnesses spread when an infected person comes into contact with people.

Also depending on the illness, it can be potentially dangerous to the child.

Personally I have no issue if they have high standards or not as long as they don't turn down the nice, also 'unattractive' guy/girl because they're chading after a suposedly 'attractive' person and then complain that no one likes them.

The latter was what I was referring to.

I'm a pretty ugly guy. So I have pretty low standards. When they turn me down and chase the "more attractive" guys, that's what pisses me off.

It's pretty expensive, but rich people like to use ambulances as a way to get somewhere faster.

Getting rid of guns is a lazy solution to a problem that doesn't exist in the first place (the problem=mentally ill and criminals getting guns via legal means). How about improving mental health care or having mental health screenings become more common place, and more youth programs to reduce the amount of criminals. If you really do believe in reducing crime and are that devoted to protecting the citizens, you really ought to be believing in the latter. It's better to stop crime at its source rather than cutting off a potential way they can commit a crime, because even if the criminal (or to-be criminal) can't get the gun legally, he's still a criminal and will eventually find a way to commit said crime with either a different weapon or the black market.

On the flip side, girls should never use "being on their period" as a way to justify doing mean things to other people.
