taking into consideration of this scenario: more people survives a fist fight over a gun fight or a shot from a gun, just saying. especially a shot gun. even though bullets are so cool on x-ray in the body, bullets leave a further mark if the person survives, because there is getting the bullet out, the damage to the body if you can't get the bullet out and so forth. once again, the mind is the weapon to fear, the fists we close to use as a weapon, the weapon we choose to pick up and use... all of these are linked to how the human mind will react to situations, either they being out of acts of evil or justified acts of protection against acts of evil. in which case, do we become evil then upon acting and protecting ourselves with some sort of violence?
Your post suggests one that "if we have unpreventable problems, we shouldn't deal with preventable ones." (Either that, or "we should ban fists.")
And according to your own source(or, the source of your source), the total of all murders involving firearms (rifles or otherwise) is much higher than fists. You picked rifles out specifically, choosing to ignore other firearms related deaths, in order to push a point.
I'm not entirely in favor of excessive gun control, but I don't agree with your tactics or reasoning.
Do you still think after all this murder that we shouldn't have any laws about who can get guns and what guns anyone can get?
anyone who thinks not has blood on their hands. How bout compare this to abortion.... or in your case, you obviously support after-birth abortion. It doesn't matter how many kids get shot by bullets- DOING NOTHING is clearly the answer. May god have mercy on your wretched soul. Shame on you.
Well, in Poland it is hard to have a permission for a gun. I love weapons and guns, shooting is my hobby, but I don't think that i want guns to be legal. On the other hand-if someone wants to kill someone else he can do it with a kitchen knife.
sure, that is why I would be afraid if guns were legal in Poland. Now the situation is ok I think-there are some shooters, hobbyists who have a permission because they have great scores in competitions, everything is ok with their minds etc. I think it isn't too often when someone kills with a registered, legal weapon, it should be too easy to find out who did it.
Hands: attached to our arms since birth, can be used to build, repair, and manipulate physical objects, combined with a complex brain and social dynamics, it's one of the factors that led to humans achieving world dominance. As a weapon, it is functional if trained, but is limited to close quarters. Lethality is largely dependent on skill or situation. Can be blocked and countered, as well as avoided. limited by fatigue and injury, as well as another person with equal skill in hand-to-hand combat.
faggotry rating: .3/10 (the only thing that has ever scored a 0/10 is headbutting.)
Guns: weapon, and by definition, it's only purpose is to kill and does it quite well. When shot, makes the shooter's dick feel bigger. It goes bang-bang and the shooty bits stop terrorists from killing America. Can kill from a distance away with a twitch of the finger. Cannot be blocked, and the only counter is cover and not being in direct line of fire. limited by ammunition, but the only skill necessary is how to not smack yourself in the face with the recoil.
faggotry rating 7-9/10 (killing someone with no effort with a pull of the trigger and not even getting your shirt bloody or giving the guy a chance is pretty faggy. Doing it and thinking you're a badass because of it pretty much makes you Aquaman; having any confidence of your skills as a badass gunman is only going to get you laughed at by actual badasses who fuck shit up with the same organ they use to fap with.)
conclusion: I lost interest halfway through this comment. don't be Aquaman, and punch someone with your fap hand. thank you.
The gun freaks continue to repeat their "hands and fists and gasoline also kills" arguments, and they clearly all think that it makes absolute perfect sense. Clearly, they're right because the murder rate in America is 98% death-by-getting-bitchslapped. We have a problem with drugs killing people- and those are regulated to as a result. When we have a problem (like hardcore dudes in combat gear shooting up movie theaters and kindergardeners) it seems we should make it less easy for them to do so. Yet these brainwashed robots walk around in circles and act utterly astounded when they hear sane people demanding THE RULE OF LAW. OVer guns. I used to think North Koreans were fucked up the way they force tears over their Dear Leader in public at huge parades... now I think I understand how it works. The NRA followers have the same affliction- total brainwipe. Drank the koolaid willingly, and have utterly no sense that anything else exists in the world than their paranoid fantasies.
"Protecting said bad guys from the police via a citizen's arrest, as the police are more likely to shoot them than I am."
Alternatively, because shooting is a relaxing and enjoyable activity.
But see, speaking as the owner of a house which has been broken into four times in as many months, "Fear of bad guys" wouldn't exactly be irrational. Criminals are something I actually do have to deal with on a regular basis of late.
You idiots can quote, and hunt around on google looking for all the god damned statistics the NRA keeps advertizing- to try and make your lame pathetic argument against the rule of LAW
Here are the facts- 20 CHILDREN were massacred. TWENTY. By guns. So fuck your guns. It's time to give 'em up. And the government is entitled to use any means it deems necessary, as far as I'm concerned.
