if we give everyone guns, and have everyone shoot themselves, there won't be anyone left to commit a mass murder!

IT'S THE PERFECT PLAN!

Civilians are the ones doing the shooting, though...

he was pretty clear, regular gun wielding civilians are the ones that cause most if not all shootings, The police, military, and government officials aren't the ones going around and shooting up schools and movie theaters.

For some reason "The Daily Anarchist: Building a voluntary society... without permission" doesn't seem like a reliable source.

but over here, where guns are illegal, we never have shootings. occasional gang things where they take out about one guy maybe, but nothing like in the US. That said now that every man and his dog has an assault rifle I think you've kind of shot your self in the foot with it, your stuck, cant completely get rid of them.


heh, shot yourself in the foot.

It says it right in the article that the ban expired in 2004. You can legally buy them now

Whoa! Laws can stop people from getting assault weapons!

They should make laws banning heroin and meth too!

OH?! You're saying laws won't stop us from having guns?!

im not sure what you mean by over here, but in most countries guns are legal and the murder rates are no where close to the us.
#25 - anon (12/15/2012) [-]
This is horribly skewed. The statistic obviously only includes cases where and armed person has fought back which is a small number. How about you looked at the amount of violent incidents at malls and schools that have an officer on site at all times. You will notice that it is much lower than anywhere else. Stop shoving your ******** down our throats. The last thing we need is for joe everyman to carry a gun wherever they go.

I live in Texas and as far as i know nothing like this has ever happened that's because in Texas almost everyone has a gun no matter what .
#431 to #369 - anon (12/16/2012) [-]
put your reading glasses on
heres the thing with banning firearms. (they arent guns, they are firearms) like people have said above, the criminals will ALWAYS have access to firearms, no matter how illegal we make it. but i really think that if we took the time to educate people about firearms and how to properly use them, people would feel safer...

now the other issue is whether or not teachers should be able to carry on campus, well i think that is a good principal. i know that here in texas you have to pass a strict background test to even get your teaching certificate. then you have to go through a even tougher CHL class. and even still you have to pass a federal background check to even purchase them....
just having campus police isnt enough, there should be people that are educated on firearms and how to properly use them..

Right, because a kindergartner is gonna pull out his ******* AK-47 and mow down the assailant before he does any damage.

No, dumb ass, the teacher is.
User avatar #285 to #213 - saddestofbreads (12/16/2012) [-]
Probably not a good thing for a kindergartner teacher to walk into class brandishing his assault rifle.
User avatar #378 to #285 - totallynotafurry (12/16/2012) [-]
That's why you don't give it to them as a personal weapon, you put it somewhere out of sight, but within easy reach, in the classroom.
User avatar #386 to #378 - moser (12/16/2012) [-]
And what if a child finds it? Then what?
User avatar #394 to #386 - totallynotafurry (12/16/2012) [-]
Make sure it's got the safety on.
A child isn't going to be traumatized by the simple sight of a gun. More likely, they're going to be intrigued by it. And most children in America wouldn't know how to hold, let alone operate, a weapon like that.

There's a lot of "what ifs" in this. How bout the one that matters: What if a gunman barges into the classroom and starts shooting at the children? Oh, that's right, the teacher who has been trained to use his/her weapon pulls it out and returns fire, HOPEFULLY eliminating the threat.
User avatar #420 to #394 - moser (12/16/2012) [-]
I'm sure there are a lot more kids that can figure out how to turn a safety off then your scenario assumes. Introducing a gun into a classroom of children bring with it the chance of a student shooting another either on purpose or by accident. Gun's accidentally kill over 500 kids a year just from there being a gun in 1/3 of American homes. You put a gun in 100% of American classrooms, that number is going to unavoidably skyrocket. And the amount of kids that die in school shootings as it stands right now is no where near 500. So really you're not solving anything.
User avatar #446 to #420 - totallynotafurry (12/16/2012) [-]
Kids die from accidental shootings like that because the parents weren't responsible enough to put the gun somewhere the kid couldn't get to it.

What would you propose they do instead? Outlaw guns entirely so that nobody has them except the guys who wanna kill people? The only reason that works for Australia, is because people can't drive right across the border of their country, into another country, and buy the guns there.
User avatar #459 to #446 - moser (12/16/2012) [-]
I never said I wanted to ban guns. I just don't think it's a good Idea to store one in a classroom full of children. Teacher's are fully capable of being just as irresponsible as a parent.
User avatar #470 to #459 - totallynotafurry (12/16/2012) [-]
Then what should we do?

I read an article yesterday about a town, in the US, where it was made mandatory that every resident own a gun (started 25 years ago). The article was celebrating the fact that since instituting that law, there had not been a single murder of a resident, whether they were the criminal or the victim, for 25 years.
Here it is: www.wnd.com/2007/04/41196/

There is nothing we can do, our culture simply needs to change where citizens don't feel that America is a gilded anarchistic war zone where you are going to get shot going out to get your mail in the morning. People don't feel secure anymore, and when that happens it raises the demand for guns, which in turn become more available to wack-jobs that then use those guns to go duck hunting in the food court of a shopping mall.

I read your article. 5242 people is kinda a low sample size to jump to a conclusion like that. Honestly, the high school I went to has more attending students than that every year.
User avatar #511 to #497 - totallynotafurry (12/16/2012) [-]
In a town of 5242 people they had a crime rate of 4332 per 100,000 which is over 400 higher than the national average at that time.
The current population is 28,189 and the crime rate is 2027 per 100,000.
People commit crimes they think they can get away with. Why do they usually get away with it? Because people are defenseless. If you give everyone a way to protect themselves, AND TRAIN THEM, criminals are less likely to be successful.
User avatar #554 to #511 - moser (12/16/2012) [-]
And is that more practical then simply trying to reform our gun culture to that of Europe, where essentially the same thing has been accomplished where all citizens are on equal footing because nobody owns a gun? Being equally dangerous to one another is the only path to peace apparently. It's the cold war on a much smaller scale essentially. So if either way works I would still feel safer if nobody had nukes.

Anyway if this argument could be solved with one discussion I would have already happened and we wouldn't be having it right now. I'm sure your opinion isn't going to change and neither is mine, but I understand yours better now.
User avatar #563 to #554 - totallynotafurry (12/16/2012) [-]
Europe doesn't have an easily accessible country south of it's borders where you can go and buy practically any gun you want.
I highly doubt that "nobody" owns a gun. I think they just make them harder to get, and limit what kinds. But crazies will still get a gun no matter how much you try to stop them. It's just less likely to happen in Europe because they're content and they don't have much **** to drive them crazy.
America on the other hand is dumb as **** in a lot of its policies, and it drives people here insane.

Your right it doesn't, it has several smaller ones located on it's east side.

when one kindergartner gets mad at one of his fellow classmates, the resolution is quick and easy. he blows his ******* head off.

Well that would solve the bully problem.
Bully doesn't like the kid? kills him and no more victim.
Victim doesn't like getting bullied? kills bully and victim is happy.
