Bomber sets off a bomb and kills people, we blame the bomber.
Drunk driver crashes his car into someone, we blame the driver.
A person shoots another person with a gun, we blame the gun?

Guns have no other purpose than to kill, stupid ass American's need to learn that... The best defense is not a good offense..

Who know's it might be a douche of a gun
User avatar #334 to #35 - dapianoman (04/21/2013) [-]
yeah cause it's not like bombs and drunk driving are illegal and it's not like we arrest the shooter, right?

No, people blame Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Starcraft, the fact that they can even get guns and people from the middle east.

They blame the salesperson that sold the gun to the shooter.

But cars are actually useful, do you really need to own a gun.
Im from the UK and I have never felt the need to own a gun
User avatar #955 to #194 - cabbagemayhem ONLINE (04/22/2013) [-]
Yes. It's not exactly a need you feel until it's too late.

I am sick and tired of this argument. First of all, no one ever blames specifically the gun, and secondly, you are comparing two things that are illegal in this country with one that isn't. Perhaps we should make drunk driving legal because people are just going to do it anyway.

Newtown, stolen from his mother who was irresbonsible aas **** with her weapons.

Most mass shootings are done with high-capacity/semi-auto/ blah blah blah etc.

Those are the restrictions they're trying to make, they aren't trying to ban guns, they're trying to keep a lid on things that you can clear a room full of people with in under a minute.

noone blames guns... (well some retards somwehere probably does it)

They don't sell pre-made bombs either, but that's not because we blame the bombs:P

We blame the bomb AND the bomber. We condemn the bomb just as much as the bomber but bombs are that prevalent in our society as guns are.
A car wasn't made to kill. It is the action of the driver who turns it into a deadly weapon.
Gun's are made to kill. They have no other purpose but too kill.
#38 to #35 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
No, you ******** . We blame the person with the gun, and we're pissed about the fact that a person like that can get their hands on a gun.

Most shootings are done with illegally owned guns. Gun laws only prevent people from getting gun legally. That's like saying that if we make weed illegal it will stop people from smoking it.

Most guns used in mass shootings are obtained legally.

America and its government are trying to stop mass shootings, not all shootings. To end all shootings, gang violence would have to be ended, which our lazy ass government is too stupid to fix.

Is that what they're trying to do? Because all available research shows that gun control increases violent crime. What an odd way to go about it.
User avatar #980 to #967 - cullenatorguy (04/22/2013) [-]
Large cities where gun control is in place have large amounts of violent crimes. States with high gun control have lower amounts of violent crime. It's kind of a trade off, I guess.

That is not true at all. I think you should start citing sources before making anymore assertions.
User avatar #1324 to #1321 - cabbagemayhem ONLINE (04/24/2013) [-]
Thank you.

1 & 2: Irrational arguments and bad or no sources; I can't believe you are still posting these.
3: I don't see relevance.
4: Not a reliable source for making controversial assertions.

5: This is the only source you should have made me read. The study identifies a correlation between gun laws and gun related violence. This is already known. This does not imply a correlation between gun control and violent crime. This is secondary to the well-known studies that do show an inverse correlation between gun laws and violent crime.

I am sorry for Sandy Hook, and for people's fear of guns, but gun control is no solution at all.

I'm not saying it is. It's ******* stupid.
I provided sources that could possibly have any relevance at all to only back up my claim that states with higher gun laws have less gun violence. It's obvious that cities have more gun violence, that doesn't even need a source.

Can you get me the source for what you said about gun crimes being performed with illegally owned guns?
#43 to #40 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
It won't stop it but it'll help us better keep track of them, as well as reduce the number of them in the populace. Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook guy, used legally owned guns that he stole from his mom. If restrictions on gun purchases were made a bit tighter, then there would be less of a problem, although the problem is always going to be there.

"legally owned guns he stole from his mom"
I guess I legally own a car that i stole.
User avatar #737 to #43 - TastyBurger (04/22/2013) [-]
>Legally owned.
>Stole it.

Pick one.

It was the mother's fault for not keeping her guns secure from her (obviously ****** up) kid, you ******** .

He had the assault rifle bushmaster .223 rifle in his cars trunk he never took it inside The only thing that makes the ar-15 and the bushmaster truly similar is the same type of military design and the .223 round
he used I believe it said 2 pistols but there may have been a total of 4 guns in the school or something along those lines
Next on the order of business the sandy hook shooting you so blatantly referenced Blaming an ar15(should that be what you were referencing) for the shooting when he used pistols is something I am not surprised the media would do But I hope someone would be more informed then from what the mainstream media says
But that argument is for If you were in fact hinting too the bushman being the problem

My next point being that making gun control tighter
I live in the country and They arent taking my guns that as simple as that
but making them harder to buy legally isnt really going to stop major crimes
If someone up and decides to themselves Im going to go on a shooting rampage at that building legality is no longer an issue because I know several people who sell guns for under 500$ no paperwork no serials no trace except word of mouth and the stricter gun laws arent really hurting him Because everyone knows making something illegal keeps it off the streets take a look at meth you cant find that anywhere

Making something illegal wont stop it from being in the hands of those who shouldnt have it

Guns aren't evil, but your stupid ******* country has proven time and time again it can't handle them responsibly.
