Hehe, I see what you did there.
I love that you posted this in the "animals" category
So what, you´re just gonna stick to the original plan because it´s too much trouble to make a change? Yes, gun control is more laws, but not just more laws. They will have to specify what guns are illegal and to whom they are and aren´t allowed to be sold. You know, I´m really tired of this. Just go on and live your American dream or whatever, while the people with brains try to make your life even better.
Wow, you really stick to your point. I respect that, though I will always disagree with you. What´s typical is that when you run out of arguments, you just start quoting the constitution. I have not yet heard any good argument against more gun control. All I´ve heard is that you are afraid of the invasion of your rights and that you desperately hang onto the rights, just because they are written down. Haha, did you know that in some US states masturbation is illegal? Or that in Louisiana, it is illegal to make a false promise?
Stop saying the government is stealing from you, because it is not true and stop being so narrow-minded. It´s not making you look very intelligent.
That´s not what I said. I said that YOU are drawing a conclusion BASED on those findings. Do you see the difference? You´re using those statistics to reinforce your own theory, without scientifically testing it or even thinking about other possibilities.
Also, I did not say you need more laws. I´m saying that you only seem to value the consitution because it reinforces your opinion (see what I did there?). And as you very well know, laws and consitutions can be amended.
Hahaha, oh this is so typical. So some people wrote down a constitution ages ago and it´s very valuable. But wait, there´s more, its value is only considered when people need it to get what they want :D you know what, I´ll let you stay in your bubble. I´ll tell you what, I´m Dutch and a woman. I probably stay in the kitchen all day, wearing wooden shoes and smoking weed!
Haha, I like that.
That, sir, is a perfect example of observer bias. You know, drawing conclusions over data based on your previous opinion and expectations rather than a scientific analysis? You see, if there had been more gun control, a lot of lunatics wouldn´t have been able to get a gun. Also, those gun free zones should apparently have been much more secured. Which is logical, regarding the fact that outside those zones lunatics ARE allowed to buy guns.
Oh would you stop whining about the second amendment? I know it´s the only argument you have, but still. Stop it. I am in no place to say what is normal, but I am allowed to firmly express my opinion. So are you. And still, what the hell? You would try to kill people if they would within their right to confiscate your gun tried to do their job? I´d say, the reason your country might go to shit, is because of the ignorance of many of its people.
Right. But the police have guns, too. And bulletproof vests. And any normal person would give up his fucking gun rather than murder someone.
Do you have any evidence of that? I´d love to see where you got those statistics from.
You have got to be kidding me. I was being sarcastic, giving kids guns is not going to just teach them about the dangers. They´ll probably shoot each other when they get into an argument.
And about your ´point´ on mentally unstable people: you´re not really serious about that one, right? Have you ever heard about science? Psychological research? No, you cannot predict for every person if they might use a weapon in a bad way. Which is exactly why there has to be more gun control! Give everyone a year to collect and turn in their weapons to the government. Then don´t give anyone who isn´t part of law inforcement a gun license.
I´ll try and explain it with a metaphor: if the wate rpipes break and flood your basement, do you raise the ceiling or find a way to get rid of the water?
And btw, I´m NOT saying that one should have complete trust in the government and I completely agree that Obama´s stunt with the drones was very wrong and unethical. But I think he´s your best chance, since all the Republican candidates are either hypocritical liers or just plain stupid.
Herr Freud, is that you?
Oh yeah, that´s just great. We should give the teachers guns, too, to protect the children in case some lunatic with a gun comes in. And while we´re at it, give all the children guns, too, so that they can protect themselves from bullies. You know what, let´s just give every single person the US a gun!
You shouldn´t just give guns to responsible citizens, you should stop giving guns to irresponsible people. Guns should be in the hands of the police, to be used only in case of emergency. Don´t you see? It´s all about money with the gun lobbyists. They´re rich, yet undereducated, irresponsible and selfish. Do not let their pointless yelling convince you.
