Oh right cause i'd love to see the world outlaw steak knives, rope and baseball bats.

They can't, which why they don't talk about it (except Al Sharpton who has already talked about knife control). The question is why is it the gun's fault in the case of a shooting but the person's fault elsewise.

Because you have to draw the line somewhere. If you're going to have a gun why cant I have an RPG? I'll just use it for fun, thats its purpose with me.

Well, your talking to a logician and a libertarian. Any line is arbitrary, so I don't really draw one. Along similar lines though: it was recently legal to by dynamite, pvc piping, potatoes, and butanes (or air compressor). This would effect similar results.

Everyone else is throwing out their opinion so I might as well too. Studies have shown that a very high percentage (idk the % but an article I read said it was like 85 or 90% or something) of weapons involved in gun related violent crimes are unregistered, meaning they did not buy their weapon from a licensed dealer, instead bought it illegally. Banning guns will not keep them out of the hands of someone trying to do harm with them, instead keep them out of the hands of people like me, a 4 year Marine Corps infantry vet. I carry a Colt M1911 everywhere I go. Yes it is registered, and yes I do have a license to carry.

I just reference the drug rates...nice to see research has been done on guns themsleves.

I read an article. I saw a percentage. I'm obviously credible.

It was an FBI survey of prison inmates...not even gonna bother with a link on here. They basically asked them where they got their weapon, fewer than 2% from a flea market, 12% from a retailer... and more than 80% said a friend, family, street buy or other illegal source. you can google it if you want.

It'd be really ******* hard to kill 20 kids in a school by yourself with just a knife...

.. then again, they say we'll be able to print (yes, print) out guns soon... so these gun laws might not do **** anyways.

They're kids. You stab one, the rest start crying the fetal position. Then you stab the rest. What's the teacher going to do? You've got a knife.

hit you with a baseball bat... :-P

Are you freaking kidding me. Yeah you could use a 3d printer to make a polymer gun but you have to make the barrel and the bolt assembly out of metal. You cant just print a gun unless it only fires a few shots by which time it would overheat and deform. Why not machine a full metal gun. Second it is fairly easy to build a gun. With the right machinery and schematics, you can convert a pump action shotgun into a semi-auto. If they outlaw guns people will just machine them illegally anyway. The production would just be slower.

Baseball bats are used for baseball. Rope is used for rope things. Knives are used for cutting things. the only thing that guns are used for are killing people, and marksmanship. Marksmanship can be accomplished with small caliber rounds like .22's and stuff. You don't need AK47's with armor piercing exploding rounds and grenade launchers for anything legal or ethical. I'm pretty sure everyone is fine if you do target practice with a .22 rifle, a small caliber shotgun for hunting, or a small caliber pistol for home defense, but fully automatic weapons, armor-piercing rounds, high-capacity magazines, and explosives really should be illegal.

Someone needs just get a ******* restraining order already.
User avatar #81 - lockstin (01/13/2013) [-]
well i think the difference is that if your coming at someone with any melee weapon then (unless your sneak skill is 30+) they have a change to fight back, and call for help. also your stuck with killing one person at a time. meanwhile anyone with a gun can kill a dozen people in a few seconds. I dont think we should ban guns but I just dont like arguments that arent fully thought out.

If guns are banned the crime rate will rise because most criminals don't obtain their weapons through legal means in the first place.
#367 to #70 - Rascal (01/13/2013) [-]
They steel legal guns and use them. All illegal guns were once legal guns. Keep feeding legal guns into the land, expect many more illegal guns.

I would like to buy a SCUD rocket and a launcher for it. Any ideas? (Already tried it in Iran, man... the prices are really high there.)

Have you tried Walgreens?

Politicians have their hands full. Guns of course kill a lot easier but if they made them illegal then criminals will still find a way to get guns and civilians will only have at most a knife. Then, if you made guns legal, you give the cops guns so the few criminals can be neutralized easily, but then again, cops can go mad and kill a lot of people. I really don't have a clue of what they might do next for gun violence.

That's a ******* stupid argument. And I don't think anyone honestly thinks this way except for the same dumbasses in this intellectual ******** of a country who say "HURR DURR GUNS DONT KILL PEOPLE PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE WEED IS BAD THO IT KILLS PEOPLE"
