How many more people wish you didn't have the gun for you to shoot in the first place?

Stupid cunt.

Maybe this is just a joke?

Stupid cunt.

how many people wish there was a way to instantly keep every single person in the country from obtaining a gun legal of otherwise?

because that's totally possible.

just because you're not getting shot doesn't mean there isn't a single person in your country who doesn't own a gun...

You forgot
>get stabbed

I'm Scottish, stabbing just makes us angrier.

But you're right I'll rephrase:

>Be Brittish
>Don't get shot
>Junkie inbound
>"ye goat' 50p fur the bus pal?"
>Junkie pulls knife
>Escape from unfit junkie (glorious obesity problem strikes again)
>Junkie can't shoot knife after me
>Survive and turn up for fish and chips with tea by One bong
>Such is life in glorious gun-free Utopia

Oooh a place where you have to run at any inkling of danger, my how glorious.
User avatar #363 to #361 - thegamegestapo (06/20/2013) [-]
Tell you who didn't get a chance to run: those Sandy Hook kids.

Stop acting macho, when your life is in danger you run. Fighting back is the last resort. If you were to read any self defence manual, your neighbourhood watch guidelines, or even the Army procedure upon being attacked whilst on leave then you might pick that up.

Tell you who didn't have to run, that lady who shot an intruder 7 times just to stop him from attacking her. or the other 80-100k people who defended themselves with firearms last year.

I'm not going to run if I can end the situation, because maybe he didn't stab me, what about the next person who's not so lucky? I'm not being macho, i'm being compassionate.

80-100K? I'm gonna' need to see some sources there.

You know what kills more people than home invaders: Toilets. Seriously, look it up. That's an older figure admittedly but you get the point.

It's not compassionate, it's excessive force. If I respond to someone trying to rob me by caving in his skull with a tire iron then I am the one in the wrong. The only reasonable time that you could pull a gun on someone is if they are planning on killing you, which doesn't happen very often.

Right because letting an obviously crazed man harm the public instead of stopping him is such a good idea, i'm not going to let someone hurt someone else just because I could get away.

(I couldn't find the source I had before so i'll have to recant that point until a later time)

Stopping him is the job of the police, they're trained to handle it, you are not. If you saw a dangerous looking dog running through the streets do you pull out your.45 and blow its head off?
#371 to #370 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Police response time is 8 minutes at best, let alone out in the country where it can take hours. If I had a dog actively trying to attack me or others yes, and that's literally exactly what the police do.
User avatar #372 to #371 - thegamegestapo (06/20/2013) [-]
Okay, what about if you saw a dangerous looking man? Given that Police guidelines say you're only supposed to shoot if the officer themselves are in immediate mortal danger.
#373 to #372 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
I was going by the original situation why a man pulled a knife on me, which would indeed be a direct threat to me and others.

That's an entirely different situation altogether , if he is not actively a threat i'm not going to do anything, you need to get it out of your head that every gun owner is some loose cannon that's going to go ******* if someone so much as lets a fart out. Believe it or not the majority of gun owners aren't complete retards.

You think we should be handing out assault rifles to the tracksuit wearing assholes that live round from my house? What is this, Alabama?

Also lrn to Northern Ireland.
#357 to #356 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Yes because that's totally what I said amirite?
User avatar #359 to #357 - thegamegestapo (06/20/2013) [-]
You're right, I'm using a strawman fallacy. Maybe I don't have to deal with crazy gun wielding Mexican cartel members but gun control does stop Stabby Joe from becoming Shootie Joe.

And I get that, I was merely making the point that comparing the US to a country that isn't even relatively geographically similar is silly.

How many people think it's possible to keep 100% of citizens from ever getting guns?
