She said shooting. Not mass murder.

And wow what an original post, wanting to debate gun control..

@1782243

From the subject of this post I think it's easy to work out that when they said "shootings" they meant "mass shootings," so, while your point was right, GolfWang, it was kind of off topic.
But it was an excellent argument for the illegalization of guns.

I get it, it's just Wolfgang but you just switched the first letters in each part!

@giggity goo, there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to debate gun control. amirite is not all about stupid jokes and word puns.

@1782243

Not in so-called developed nations like America.
And, of that's true, what was the mass murder that happened yesterday then? The day before? Day before that?

Yeah, fuck the second amendment! Fuck the ability for responsible citizens to be able to defend themselves! If one person abuses it, EVERYONE will!

Next you'll be attacking the first amendment, because we insult our president and attack each other over sides, hm?

What the fuck, we did not ban guns. They are legal just heavily regulated and "the first year results" our gun laws were tightened in 1997...
I know where you got your stats from but they are misleading, some are wrong and some are taken out of contex. Here read this http://www.snopes.com/crime/statistics/ausguns.asp

@patrickedwards58118 the reason mexico has so many deaths is because the US trades guns, which they can legally buy, or drugs. They supply the dealers wih weaponry that the police force doesn't even have so the army had to be brought in to try and clean up the mess your country made, so don't blame that on the ban on guns.
Canada is an example of a country where guns are banned and there are very few murders. Yes there are shooting and odd cases, like everywhere else, but the murder rate is low.

Ah I was right. You had the same conversation before with someone else trying to pull that.

Yeah I know I'm Canadian but I meant machine guns and semiautomatics. The guns lisences are mainly for hunting riffles, etc. I should've clarified though. Thanks for pointing it out:)

Holy wow you have a good memory! I thought I might have but couldn't find the tread so guessed that I hadn't.

America: the only place with mass murder since 2012!

Say that we decide that people can't have guns. Do you think a criminal is going to think, "Wow, I really wanted to shoot up those people, but it's illegal for me to have a gun. Oh well."

@cheeseisyourfriend Say that we decide that people can't have guns. Do you think a criminal is going to think, "Wow, I really wanted to...

Yeah exactly, whether or not it's legal to have a gun things like that are going to happen. Murder is illegal, and people still do it obviously. It's kind of like trying to protect people from themselves - heroin is illegal, but people still do it. So if guns are banned, shootings are still going to happen no matter what.

Because everyone who legally has a gun goes out and kills people. But only in America.

I think it should be much more difficult to obtain a firearm (especially the high powered ones) but I'm sure that would do little to deter the people that really wanted to be destructive and kill. People that want to cause harm will find a way to do so, guns or no guns.

In the more liberal parts of the country, such as New York, it can take years of legal battles and thousands of dollars to register a weapon. I personally think that's a little too hard to get

I'm sure there's a happy medium there somewhere, though whether it will ever become law is certainly a different story.

I think it has to do with some people who aren't exactly in the right mind and have very easy access to guns.

I think people should be allowed to have guns.
People just shouldn't be allowed to have gigantic machine guns or use these for violence. I think people should go through mental background checks before getting a gun.

Hey smart guy, do you know how many people are killed in America every year by guns? No? Try 29,338. Sounds like a lot...until you compare it to the 35,000 killed by second hand smoke, the 42,366 killed by automobiles and the 440,000 killed by smoking.

Now let me ask, would you try to ban cars because there was a pileup on the interstate? Probably not. But hey, I guess us Americans is just crazy!!

And there's a great reason the founders included that little ditty in THE BILL OF RIGHTS: because rapists know that the police average 4 minutes. And murderers aren't going think "well I was going to kill someone but I guess since it's illegal to own a gun!"

Here's another reason: "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepares their own downfall by so doing." now time to play who's that celebrity! You guessed it! That's from the record "Adolf sings the blues"

I could go on and on but I really don't feel like I have to in order to show how blatantly ignorant this post is

Those who want to kill will find away, a ban on guns will do nothing but disarm the citizen that choses to use their gun responsiblely. I personally would prefer to have the ability to protect myself should I ever need protection.

Of course, because we all know that criminals follow laws...

So I was on the other side of the world for three weeks, and I live in a small town where, sometimes, the big news doesn't come around for awhile.
So what were the shootings? One of them was at a Dark Knight Rises showing, right? What was the other?

Another 3 in critical condition, including the gurdwara's president. The sad part is that kids were having a birthday party in the basement, and at first, they thought it was fireworks that they were hearing....

Don't assume, check definitions...

Militia 1. A military force of civilians to supplement a regular army in an emergency. 2. A military force that engages in rebel activities.

Basically it says, "Citizens, being necessary to keep the country safe, have the right to carry guns."

It is a 'plan b.'

In addition to that, merriam-Webster defines militia as the whole body of able-bodied citizens as being subject to military call. In other words: if you've signed up for the draft (which is required for men at 18), you're in the militia

Inb4 pissy Americans getting their knickers in a twist because someone thinks they're not the best country ever...oh wait...

@Emaphina Inb4 pissy Americans getting their knickers in a twist because someone thinks they're not the best country...

I think I found another humourless, pretentious fuck-wit. Hint, hint-you're them.

God fucking damn, 'humorless'? I'm sorry, I didn't realize an insult was a joke. I suppose next time somebody calls my own country, one that I fight for, retarded or anything like that, I should laugh.

And look who's close-minded! You've begun generalizing ALL of Americans, simply because of the actions of a few! I can't judge for you, since I reside in Australia, but you're becoming the very thing that you hate.

Please look at your comment before posting-all you just did was look like a bitter, butt-hurt asshole. Good day.

Half the people on here hate Christians or pro-life individuals, or anyone that doesn't like Harry Potter or some stupid shit like that. I think I'm entitled to a little American bashing. And okay, maybe all Americans aren't like that but the ones on this website mostly are.

Hey Emaphina, I'm an American, go fuck yourself it might help you calm down.
Anonymous- Thank you for the defense, and I love your accent.

Emaphina, I'm confused. You think 90% of the people on this website are the dumbest sacks of shit on Earth, yet you continue to come on here?

@Emaphina Inb4 pissy Americans getting their knickers in a twist because someone thinks they're not the best country...

Yeah, no offense, alittle, and thanks for the thanks, but you just kinda' proved their own point. eye twitch

yes, quite so, but instead of concluding that all of whatever nationality she is are exactly like her I decided to clarify that it just her as they weren't the one's who offended with they're stereotypical bullshit.

@Emaphina Inb4 pissy Americans getting their knickers in a twist because someone thinks they're not the best country...

As an American, I find Emaphina to be the very thing she(?) describes. Every nation in the world has the same type of idiots.

@Emaphina Inb4 pissy Americans getting their knickers in a twist because someone thinks they're not the best country...

People will always hate things-as an orchestral fan m'self, I strongly dislike dubstep and metal. As a Harry Potter fan, I hate Twilight. As a writer, I hate Twilight as well. It's all called 'opinions'-and while you're entitled to yours, generalization and/or insults on one's direct being should not be a part of it. The difference between being accepted legitimately, and not being yelled at-like I did to you, is, you pass your opinion as such. Do not pass them as fact. Say "I THINK they're blah blah", not "They ARE." One word makes the difference.

My apologises. I think the Americans on this website are 90% closed minded, humourless, pretentious fuck-wits. Happy?

@Emaphina Inb4 pissy Americans getting their knickers in a twist because someone thinks they're not the best country...

Very much so. Looks more an opinion than an attempted passing of fact.

Thanks, and have a nice day!

This website has made me so anti-American. Everyone here should be above average intelligence, but in reality you're 90% closed minded, humourless, pretentious fuck-wits. Bloody hell.
