Hello friends, I'd just like to say that I'm happy to be here.
It's an honor to be able to post on this excellent website, Funnyjunk is like a second home for me.

I heard a very valid argument from a surprisingly old trial recently..   
   
The 2nd Amendment "The right to bear arms" wasn't made so that people can own guns to protect themselves from each other.   
It was put in place to basically keep the government in check over the people. So that the citizens, as a last resort, can actually FIGHT the government if everything was to go to shit. It also made a militia easier to set up in the case of attack of the country.   
   
Sure these ideas were based upon the ideals of revolutionary freedom fighters in the 1700's... but it is kind of a justifiable argument.   
While I myself don't have a real opinion on the situation of gun control, I thought this specific argument was rather interesting.   
   
Gif unrelated. Couldn't find a good reaction pic...

Honestly, I enjoy my bear arms. They're stronger than human arms, and they have claws. Hard to beat that. Also, good argument.

Okay, first of all, I'm not here to butthurt anyone. You can redthumb me all you wan't, but i merely wish to have an argumentally-based civilised conversation.   
   
I wish to say that anti-gun laws could, in my opinion, have prevented the shootings. I know that you can easily get guns from drug cartels or downtown alleyway drug dealers, but it requires a special kind of effort that makes the optainment of guns harder. Of course, if you are willing enough, you will get a gun, but the amount of effort people have to put in it would sometimes not be enough to make them go into these shadowy dark places, and then they would not even have had a shooting to start with.   
   
If you really believe that anti-gun laws won't stop criminals, look at other countries, such as mine, Denmark. We have nearly none to zero amounts of shootouts in the cities, and the only times it happens (1-2 times a year) is because that gang members become violent against eachother - it's never been massacres.   
   
I know about the Breivik case, and that one is extraordinary due to the fact that he had the willingness to put an insane amount of effort into getting all of these automatic weapons and ammunition that he wished to use. This also means that anti-gun laws may not necessarily stop gun massacres and shootouts, but i believe that they can drastically reduce them.   
   
This would also be due to the fact that regular civilians would not have guns. If a civilian is extremely mad at his neighbour, and he just want's to hurt him so badly, he would perhaps use his handgun to shoot him in the leg or similarly, from a distance. To hurt or kill his neighbour without the guns, he would have to get close with a knife or another blunt tool, which translates into an entirely different kind of killing - you get close up and personal with your victim, and the feeling of standing right besides someone you're trying to kill, is usually very hard due to moral reasons.

Everyone on FunnyJunk seems to have a terrible understanding of pro- and anti-gun control ideas. Eh, whatever.

Number of Americans killed by handguns in 2011 = 8583
Total number of Americans killed in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan = 1939
Now I know why you Americans want to sign up - it's safer in Afghanistan.

A man in China stabbed more elementary students than the recent kid shot at Newtown. Just short of thirty children. If a crazy guy wants to hurt people, they will. Gun laws or not.

If it's not a problem of weapons, it must be because the USA has a cultural problem. Maybe they're just more insane than us.
