Here is my final word:
Take away fully automatic weapons, that is fine. Just know that if they do take away all guns, they won't stop there. Ever hear of "give them an inch they'll take a mile"? You let them take away the 2nd Amendment, what will be next? They did take away our 5th until the NDAA was revised. History has shown when weapons are taken away, civilians die. Now I know you feel safe living in your suburbia area, but when you look outside your rainbow and gum drop bubble, the world is an ugly place, filled with ugly people. The same ugly people that don't listen to laws now. New laws will not stop them. I know all the liberals want to hold hands and sing Dr. Seuss songs, but that isn't the world we live in.
Then again, most of you haven't had something happen to you, to make you feel unsafe. If it weren't for my gun, I would have been mauled by a bear. While guns do make it easier to kill than a knife, people will die regardless. I could fill up a super soaker with gasoline, and light small children on fire. Then super soakers get taken away. Let's stop blaming inanimate objects, and take a look at our society. We have our president hanging out with Jay-Z. A man who has stabbed another man, a man who raps about selling coke, and doing it. A man who has no problem taking someone's life, so why is he friends with the leader of this country? What kind of message does that send to young kids?
Our society is definitely *vulgarity*ed up. It is up to our generation to do something about it. That requires too much work though huh?
Feel free to reply, I'll read, but I won't reply back. This is all opinion, and there are too many opinionated people on this site(me included). Some of you guys are douche bags(me included), some of you are cool. Overall, you guys are good people. Be safe, enjoy our last day on Earth(that is a joke), and have a good holiday.
Lolwut? Yes, first they take away our right to use guns, next, we'll all be living in an authoritarian government where the Gestapo executes any dissenters. That's definitely how it is in Britain, Germany, and Japan right now. I hear you can't even fart without Big Brother registering your location and executing you for public disturbance in Japan. And it's all because they don't have guns.
Actually, I'm pretty sure history has shown the exact opposite of "when guns are taken away, civilians die", in fact, history has pretty clearly shown that when you take away guns, homicide rates plummet drastically. But no, taking away guns increases civilian death, that's definitely why China has 1/4th the homicide rate the US has, despite of having a much poorer population and more high density population sectors, both known markers for intentional homicide. Also, it doesn't matter if criminals don't want to follow the law, there's literally nowhere to get guns. I know conservatives want to shoot the shit out of everyone, but that isn't the world we live in.
And I know you aren't the parent of a child who got killed by a gun toting psycho. Your stupid non-fact based argument works both ways. Has anyone, at any point in this debate, ever said that, if you take guns away, no more people will die? If anyone during any point in this entire discussion has said that, please point it out. Yeah, that's what I thought. But the attitude that a higher homicide rate is equal to a lower homicide rate is so backwards and flat out retarded that it's no wonder you're a conservative. If you really think you can kill anyone with a super soaker and matches, you're an idiot. If you actually think someone will attempt to kill anyone with a super soaker and matches, you are an idiot. This idea conservatives have that guns don't have a higher lethal capacity than other weapons is hilarious, and flies in the way of simple logic. Less people get killed if you take away guns, that's a simple fact.
What? What the hell does the president and Jay-Z have to do with anything about gun control you moron? And besides, everyone knows it's because Jay-Z and the President are both a part of the Illuminati and want to convert everyone to Satanism through their evil plot. To destroy the world
I agree, the world is *vulgarity*ed up, people killing other people with guns all the time, and wouldn't changing it be so much easier if it weren't for idiot conservatives making sure that you have the right to shoot people.
It's not opinion actually, I'm pretty sure it's just you spouting things that are factually wrong and trying to make them look like an opinion. That's like me saying it's in my opinion that the Earth was created 6,000 years ago or that evolution isn't real or that being homosexual is a choice. That's not an opinion, that's just someone being wrong.
