To be honest, with the amount of school shootings, cinema shootings, street shootings, armed robberies, gun violence in projects etc across the U.S., I cannot blame politicians for wanting to do whatever they physically can about it. Everything from teaching kids that using guns is wrong to limiting gun allowances - yes, anything goes, in my opinion. As long as some of those measures reduce the acts of gun violence. It's unlikely that they will not continue with something that doesn't work, anyway.

I'm not saying "Remove Idaho from the map", obviously, but the OP ridicules the removal of other gun-resembling things in kids' environment, and my point is that who knows, maybe it helps to reduce the exposure to guns and thus reduces the risk of the children using guns later in their lives.

So long as I am paying taxes, and not committing felonies, the social contract my citizenship with the united states creates means that my rights are non-negotiable, and irrevocable barring a breach from me of said social contract. Efforts to restrict rights guaranteed to me by said contract due to the actions of an insane hyper-minority are tyranny, plain and simple. There is no room for negotiation on my rights, or your rights, and even if you want to see your rights limited, I will not stop resisting such nonsense, for the sake of every single United States citizen's continued freedom.

Then again, the freedom is already gone, and the cowards have already won. The 4th amendment has become so provisional as to be a joke, same with the 5th and 10th. In all the efforts made to protect the 2nd, far too many have quietly accepted the loss of 3 others. My country is tired of freedom, and has embraced fear and weakness, and it makes me sick.

Gun murders per country. Notice the difference between the US and the UK
#124 to #118 - teranin (09/10/2013) [-]
Yes, now look at the numbers for assaults. Also, look up how many nonviolent people we jail while we're at it, being a country of only 300mil or so but having the biggest prison population on the planet.

Of course we have problems, but gun ownership isn't one of them. Poverty is. A substandard social safety net is. the disinfranchisement of black americans is. Gun ownership is not. You need only look at Canada, where they have as many guns per capita as we do, with dramatically less murders. It's not the guns that are the problem, it's the people and culture.

USA: You can carry real guns, you cannot make a sandwich in a shape of a gun at school.
Europe: Have fun playing with toy guns and have the freedom to create things in the shape of a gun, Do not carry real guns.

You may call it freedom carrying guns, but then explain me why everything that even looks similarly to a gun gets banned?

There's somethin' I've been kinda curious about. Over in the UK it's illegal for citizens that have firearms. Even the normal beat cops don't carry guns, only special armed units that have to be called in, from what I understand (but correct me if I'm wrong). Yet even so, knives are far more prevalent than gun violence, right?

So, my question here is what's stopping more criminals there from bringing a gun to a knife fight?
User avatar #125 to #107 - grapefruity (09/10/2013) [-]
Not totally illegal for civilians, it has to be related to work. Farmers in the UK can own firearms used for hunting animals. Shotguns, handguns and some rifles if I am not mistaken...

But to answer your question, the gun (And knife) laws are mostly in place to stop crimes/acts of passion or anger more than to stop a premeditated murder (Those people are going to kill anyway)

They stop the drunk, the furious and the stupid from killing others on impulse. Also hinders depressed children from killing themselves easily, giving them more time to think.

I don't get why they are banning all these gun things; fake guns, things that look like guns, people that say the word 'gun', plastic guns, bb guns, but they have not actually banned guns. Guns any one can walk around with.

If lawmakers are banning Idaho, then they should ban the letter "L". Because if you rotate it 90 degrees to the right, it looks like a gun. And that can be harmful to society and make them become gun violent. This is serious people.

Please don't hurt me to bad, I have kids.

1. Ban's entire state.
2. Said state as a result drops to 0 gun crime each year
3. Successful legislation was successful
