Guns have several other uses. Like hunting, and scaring away criminals (without shooting them).
#9 to #7 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
hunting=killing animals not saying hunting's bad or anything and scaring off criminals with the threat of death or injury
#10 to #9 - anon (01/17/2013) [-]
When you said guns are for killing, for some reason I thought you meant people, my mistake.Also, scaring off criminals with the threat of death or injury is much better than an innocent person actually getting killed or injured.
User avatar #11 to #10 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
so are you trying to say we need guns to stop people from using guns?
#12 to #11 - anon (01/17/2013) [-]
I'm saying that responsible people having guns stops violent people from using them. It doesn't seem like it makes sense, but it's how it actually ends up working. Criminals don't want to get shot either.
User avatar #13 to #12 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
well i live in canada and the only guns i see besides an occasional rifle for hunting is the gun on a cop's belt
User avatar #19 to #6 - mydogizmexican (01/17/2013) [-]
A knife you'd use for killing? Potentially a combat knife, or bowie knife, maybe even hunting knife. Theres more than one type of knife. And like you said yourself, a gun is a tool. Put into the wrong hands, it kills. You're not gonna let a thirteen year old help you build a nuke, so dont give a minor a gun. Now theres always gonna be exceptions for that rule because not everyone is a dumbass who'll go around blasting off pistol rounds.
User avatar #20 to #19 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
there is almost nothing you can do with a gun that doesn't symbolize harm where a knife is used much more for preparing meals and stuff. the world would be a much better place without guns being so common
User avatar #21 to #20 - mydogizmexican (01/17/2013) [-]
Guns arent as common as you may think they are. They are usually always hidden, i've only ever seen a pistol on a cops side in public, besides that i've gone shooting with my brother.

And i life in the States. Guns are a problem, won't deny it, its too easy for some kids to get the gun, but i'm pretty sure theres supposed to be a law about the weaponry kept in a case, or gun cabinet, unless being taken out to use for shooting or hunting. Don't hold my word for it, i'm really just pulling that out of my ass. It just seems like that is/should be a law, so if a minor gets a hold of the weapon, it is the owner of the firearms fault for letting it fall into the wrong hands, and end up being mishandled.

my friend's father had a rifle in his basement in a gun cabinet but it wasn't locked and the gun was loaded and his buddy found it and jokingly pointed it at him and just like that he was ripped away from this world at 17 and this is the only time that i heard about getting shot in canada from someone and not on the news or anything
User avatar #29 to #28 - mydogizmexican (01/17/2013) [-]
My point. I forgot to mention, they shouldnt be loaded, a gun can misfire if knocked the wrong way. The cabinet wasnt locked, the gun was loaded, and hes gone now (sorry about your loss).
User avatar #32 to #29 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
that's ******* insane and anyone can defend all they ******* but it's just going to keep happening this kid's father understood how to keep a firearm but he made a mistake and look what ******* happens? until guns are taken away this will just continue to happen and thanks

And when a house is being robbed by someone who has an illegally acquired gun, and maybe holds someone at gunpoint? Can't exactly throw a knife at them, or beat'em with a baseball bat.. I see what your point is, but people who know how to use a fire arm, deserve personal safety.
User avatar #36 to #33 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
but then the only reason someone would use a gun is to stop someone else from using a gun when we could just take all the guns away or at least as many as we can

so we should just hand guns out then so that people don't get shot?

A gun be used for leisure just as much as a baseball bat can be used for killing. Just because it was built to kill doesn't mean that's the best decision. Even if we cut off firearms, get rid of violent gaming/movies/etc. those people are still insane, madness cannot be predicted so early just to take.   
TL;DR: You can kill a guy with a baseball bat (designed for sports), pretty much at well as you can take you gun and shoot a brick wall for fun.

now see thats just retarded. i mean sure no one should have a fully automatic weapon because you dont need one so i guess i agree that SOME manner of gun control should exist. but everyone should have a gun that way it gives less inscentive for criminals to commit crime. let me put it this way say youre a mugger and you know that not many people carry a gun what do you do? you rob people with ease. now lets replay that senario. youre a mugger you know that everyone has a gun what do you do? you try to rob someone and you get shot.

and what happens if one of these guns gets stolen by a child? you seem to want them to be more common than pants so it's bound to happen that a kid gets one and shoots someone without meaning to
User avatar #30 to #27 - TheFixer (01/17/2013) [-]
heres what you do. when youre outside take the gun with you fully loaded. hide it on your person so children cant get to it, with out obviously alerting you like a zipped pocket or get a over the shoulder holster or belt holster that cops have that only they can open. when you return inside you empty the gun properly and then lock it away somewhere that only you know of. and you keep the key on your person. there crisis of mass child accidents averted. thats not to say that there wont be the occational accident but its a better alternative than what youre suggesting that im suggesting.

alright listen up buddy i got a little story for you about guns and why i hate them so much. i had a buddy his name was raymund and his father had a gun okay so this is cool so far right? he took gun safety classes and whatever and had a gun cabinet but you see one day his father made a mistake and left the gun loaded and the cabinet unlocked. okay so you got the setting. so raymund had his pal over and his buddy went to the basement for whatever reason and he notices the gun so he takes it and as a joke he aims it at his buddy. okay so we've got things lining up here for disaster as you can see. so something happens and the gun goes off and just like that Raymund is ripped from this world at the age of 17. you can defend guns all you want but stuff like this will continue to happen until something is done.
#38 to #35 - autoxx (01/17/2013) [-]
Raymond's friend was an idiot. Remove him from the gene pool and the world will be better for it.

User avatar #45 to #38 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
remember though it's a tool for killing and you can't just get rid of people like that ****** gonna happen
User avatar #48 to #35 - TheFixer (01/17/2013) [-]
so the father made a mistake of leaving it loaded and leaving the cabinet unlocked. and the friend made a mistake of not checking. like i said mine isnt a perfect system accidents are bound to happen but like autoxx said a litte eductation would go a long way to ensure that stuff doesnt happen
User avatar #49 to #48 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
his father had taken class and knew how to safely store his gun but he made a mistake and then this happens and the whole reason he's dead all comes back to him having a gun and if he didn't have a gun then this wouldn't have happened
User avatar #50 to #49 - TheFixer (01/17/2013) [-]
again this is not a perfect world accidents are bound to happen. learn from those accidents. bottom line looking at the big picture give everyone a gun and the knowledge of how to use it and crime rate would be 0 . also if that idiot "friend" of this supposed raymond had a brain and had checked the gun he would have seen it loaded. its not the guns fault the dad made a mistake and the "Friend" of this supposed raymond didnt check that it was loaded. this is down to human error and nothing else. if the gun wasnt loaded this wouldnt have happend, if the friend or father or raymond ever checked the gun before hand this wouldnt have happend. take solice that somewhere there is another universe where this didnt happen.
#51 to #50 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
so just toss guns everywhere so things similar to this will happen so much more often i don't know how to you that it makes sense to just give everyone a gun? so so solve the guns problem instead of just trying to get rid of them we should put more out there? makes sense.
User avatar #52 to #51 - TheFixer (01/17/2013) [-]
yeah because only guns kill right? i mean its not like i cant just go out side, find a heavy stick and beat some one to death with it. should we then remove all sticks from the world because they kill people if they fall on people? you just dont see the big picture is all. ill try the example again. say youre a mugger. say you know that not many people carry a gun. are you more inclined to rob people? yes. now say youre a mugger. say you know for a fact that EVERYONE HAS A GUN AND THEY KNOW HOW TO USE IT are you less inclined to rob people? yes because you know they will blast the **** out of you. i mean you might get lucky and rob like 1 or 2 people if you catch them off guard. if everyone is trained to CHECK A GUN to see if its loaded or not than the accidents will cease. do you understand what im saying? or is there going to be more to this pissing match? if so prepare your anus boy.
User avatar #53 to #52 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
the only use for a gun is to inflict harm or symbolize harm no matter how you look at it and i'm not saying you can't kill someone with a baseball bat but it's doubtful that you could kill a classroom of kindergartners with a heavy stick
User avatar #54 to #53 - TheFixer (01/17/2013) [-]
is that a ******* challange? do you want me to go out and kill a classroom full of kindergartners with a baseball bat? because its really easy they have weaker bones so take out the teacher and the teachers aid if there is one first lock the door and take them out one after the other with a single smack to the head. simple. and what about people who hunt with guns they dont inflict harm to people they inflict it to animals so that they (the humans) can survive. you seem to have a very narrow mind for guns, guns are a symbol of harm yes but also a symbol for personal protection. if you want to look at something look at chicago. this year just started and theyve already a bunch of shootings and they have the toughtest gun laws in the country. look at mexico they have a gun ban and yet people are still getting shot because the drug cartels know no one has a gun so they just take what they want. you seriously cant afford to be this naive.
User avatar #55 to #54 - thecurlysage (01/17/2013) [-]
look at canada we don't have guns and we're still alive and fine and you don't think people are going to stop you if you walk in with a bat? you have to be some kind of special retard if you think people will see it and just not care.
User avatar #56 to #55 - TheFixer (01/17/2013) [-]
correct me if im wrong but dont schools have an athletic program. and isnt part of that program you know baseball... because when i was in 4th grade (my school had kindergarten to 6th) we had metal baseball bats. so whos to say i dont just go to the gym, pick a baseball bat up walk a few feet to the kindergarten class and start beating the life out of people.

what are you gonna do about the class in the gym? and it's usually a metal door in school so you can't just kick it in and you don't think someone will notice you just killed someone? check. your move
User avatar #67 to #66 - TheFixer (01/18/2013) [-]
first off how is that a check? were not playing chess. second off the class will most likely be children who will do nothing to stop you and honestly if youre that sick in the head to go to a school with the intent to kill kids then you probably dont care if people see you kill other people. i also added the alternative of the janitor because they do the cleaning everywhere so just wait till they go into the bathrooms because when they do that means the br is probably empty say for them or wait for them to go to some other misilanious area. also there are these great new things called sports bags you might not have heard of them but anyways they can hold bats. so if youre stopped by say the principal you just make up some bs excuse that your child said they would need it today then say you wish to deliver it to them in person then proceed to the classroom it wont matter if the principal comes with you because youre a homocidal manic so youll just kill her and the teacher and all kids. game, set, match. furthermroe there are these things called knives you might not of heard of them either and those are pretty common should we ban all knives and blunt objects as well as guns? good luck with that. but then again this is all hypothetical bull crap anyways and its deflecting from this simple truth. there is good and evil in all things. the good side of guns is that they protect people the bad side is people use them to gain leverage in situations for personal gain aka robbing. a flat ban on guns would be detramental because then we would end up like mexico. what we need is a better screening process for applicants who wish to aquire guns and we need cops to open up their trunk and find the spare set of balls that are in there and then have them go and bust up the black market and put a stop to gang members having assult weapons.

I own over 2 dozen firearms, and work with them for a living. I only own one firearm that has harmed a human being, and that is the Beretta I bought from a police officer. If all guns are made to kill then my 1972 Chevy Nova Custom was only made to outrun cops, right?

And a gun has other uses then shooting people. Deterrence, hunting, target shooting, etc. If you are against firearms because they were made to kill, then you are also against fireworks, bows, hunting knives, and other day to day items.
User avatar #74 to #73 - thecurlysage (02/16/2013) [-]
1. all your examples have to do with harming someone or something.
2. you can use a knife and fireworks for more than just inflicting harm.
3. any idiot can pick up a gun and pull the trigger but with a bow it takes some practice.
4. I'm from Newfoundland so I have nothing against hunting or hunting rifles but you don't need a gun in the middle of a city.
I'm not even going to continue this argument because I've gone through it with countless people before and proved them all wrong and i don't feel like having to do it again. the gun was made for inflicting harm there is no other way around it.
User avatar #75 to #74 - charagrin (02/16/2013) [-]
No offense mate, but look up how many people DEFEND themselves with firearms every year. Do you really think a gun ban will make all guns magically disappear? If so, what school did you go to? My sister has special needs, and maybe she could enroll there.
User avatar #76 to #75 - thecurlysage (02/16/2013) [-]
I'm really glad this is a mature and grown up argument. now why are they defending themselves? oh that's right! because the other people have guns! so apparently the way so solve the gun problem is to hand out more guns! it's genius! if everyone has a gun the no will bother to use their gun! if they ban guns then it will help quite a bit with this whole thing and a gun will be a whole lot harder to get a hold of. how often do you hear about shootings in Canada?
User avatar #85 to #76 - charagrin (02/16/2013) [-]
Yeah, well **** you to then. I truly hope you are unable to defend yourself from an attacker for whatever reason, just to see the benefit of a firearm.

How oten do you hear about car accidents in Antarctica? Basic logic will tell you that a country with more firearms would have more firearm crime, and countries with more cars have more car crime.

All it would take is the little bit of training that kids should already have in a household with guns.
I learned to shoot when I was 4 (.22), never had my finger inside the guard since unless I was about to fire.

Education denotes the desire to teach though, a lot of people don't give two ***** about being a parent. Those would be the kids that screw around with daddy's gun.

Guns make it easier to dehumanize someone. You can shoot someone from a distance, put some space between. Whereas with a knife, or a baseball bat its easier to actually get blood on your hands. Your closer to them, its much more personal than a gun. Also, its harder to kill multiple people with a knife, wire, blunt object.

Then again i'm from England, never held a gun in my life, what the **** do I know.

baseball bats : used for baseball
wires : used for many purposes, such as connecting things and tieing things together
knives : used for cutting
guns : used to kill, and to kill only.
