Laws prohibiting murder, rape, robbery, etc. make punishing these crimes possible. It'd be a disgrace to human rights if you could be arbitrarily punished for crimes that are not clearly defined.
And why panic about everyone owning a gun? The vast majority of people aren't inherently evil. Likewise, the vast majority of people (no matter how much we make fun of 'muricans) aren't stupid/incompetent. Most people who concealed carry carry because they feel they need to have a means of protecting themselves and the people in their immediate area wherever they may be. These people generally want to protect lives (primarily theirs), not end them (though that may be a product of having to accomplish the former). If you are practiced and competent with your firearm, of course you'll feel safer with it at your hip.
Also, remember: many people carry concealed. Odds are, you've passed by a couple over the course of your life. You didn't see their guns, and their guns didn't hurt you.

Peaceful whom band together vocally, speaking out to the world, trying to protect their basic human rights without violating those of others? It might take a while, but look at India and that peaceful protest, and how that ended. A lot better than another bloody revolt.

i can't stand that retarded argument.
the 2A will always be as relevant as the First, or any other.
the second was meant to defend the rest.
if the 2a is removed, whats stopping anyone from changing the rest?
no more free speech.
no more right to a fair trial.
no more privacy in your own home.
oh, but all that is out dated anyway.
who needs to speak freely, or have any privacy in this day and age?

Resorting to insults, how nice.
You're not trying to have a normal conversation with me, you're using straw man arguments to pull this discussion in your favor. Human rights are protected by more than just the constitution, those will stay in place no matter what. Freedom to speech, freedom to fair trial, freedom to privacy (though we have very little this day and age). They will not be contested.
Though owning guns is not one of those basic human rights, it's a privillage that's no longer necessary.

Because it's the second amendment that protects all the other amendments. They are "necessary for the security of a free state"
Also, in 2008, the supreme court ruled that people can have a gun for self defense, apart from any formal militia.
You shouldn't be bothered by people in the street with guns. Most people with concealed carry permits are extremely responsible. Gun enthusiasts are also some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Guns are only dangerous in the hands of stupid people who don't know how common sense. Just because so many people carry guns, that's no reason to be scared. In order for someone to kill someone else, there's a lot of psychology that does along with it.
remember, 90 million gun owners killed no one today

The second amendment was put into place in different times, the constitution has aged and some things have become obsolete. The constitution is not some holy document, it's rules to live by, and rules change with time. The thirteenth amendement is a testament to this.
Even if people carrying weapons are extremely responsible, responsible people do loads of stupid things. It's not unheard of that a very strong minded person just snaps, and I'd rather have him/her snap without a gun in hand, thank you very much.
I have a hard time seeing the use of carrying guns, still. There is no force right now that is going to take over your country that can protect yourself against with your guns. It's all political warfare and drone strikes these days, so if someone wants you gone, you'll be gone. This is more about public safety than anything else, and to me it seems public safety is more at risk with weapons freely purchaseable, than without them.

I see loads of smart people on both sides of the fence, loads of documents, loads of studies, loads of everything pointing both ways, but that really doesn't matter to me at this point. I watched the video, mostly, and he seems like a reasonable man, but I'm not trying to say you're not reasonable. I just fail to see how guns, weapons, freely accesible to the public can make anyone feel safe.
#23172 - Triskiller (02/09/2013) [-]
This black and white way of looking at the problem at hand is what's keeping this debate going. There is not just two ways to shield yourself from an attack, there are also many variables that come with an attack. These variables include whether the culprit is likely to carry a gun. If the culprit takes you by surprise, which is highly likely because otherwise you could just run away, you aren't very likely to shoot him either.
#23180 - pebar (02/09/2013) [-]
Guns are considered to be "the great equalizer." If a 100 lb woman is attacked and raped by a 250 lb man, she could defend herself with a gun; you can't really do that with any other weapon.
#23183 - Triskiller (02/09/2013) [-]
I haven't seen any charts on knife related incidents in the UK being off the charts, so I'm not going to comment on that. I know that they have a lot of violent crime, on par with the USA, but they have lot less deaths related to them. The higher consequence of death is one thing that guns add to normal crime rates.
If a 100lb woman is attacked by a 250lb man she will not be able to protect herself with a gun, if he takes her by surprise. That gun will only add to the likelihood of her getting killed herself.
#23345 - Zarke (02/10/2013) [-]
There are two words I hate in that last line: "... will not ..."
All of these scenarios are "What if?"s. You can argue that someone would be able to defend themselves just as easily as you can argue that they couldn't. They are inherently unknowable, because every encounter has multiple unknowable factors at play. That's the nature of the future. You can't use the prospect of a possible futility to justify stripping someone of a means of POTENTIALLY protecting themselves.

"one good reason" trust me you will be hearing a ton in the reply's soon to follow. But anyway, I'm one of the few people on this board that is on the pro control side but I still think people should be allowed to own guns. But I do believe owning a gun is much more then just a right of the people, it's a goddamn responsibility. Your rights end where my rights begin, that's the fundamental principal behind the bill of rights and it's what I base my political beliefs on. One person's "right" to own a gun has the potential to compromise another's right to live if the first doesn't poses the responsibility that is necessary to own such a powerful tool. That's why we need laws that ensure that the people who buy guns are; Not selling them to criminals, Know how to use them properly, Know how to store them properly, and have sound mental stability. And our system as of now has a lot of room for improvement.
#23152 - Triskiller (02/09/2013) [-]
You sound like reasonable guy, thanks for the reply. I know that the majority of this board is conservative, that's why I pose this question here. I would like to hear their side of the story, 'cause I've heard a lot of conservatives talk about gun control, but haven't heard one solid reason why it shouldn't happen.

also, Apple is famous for making you buy useless accessories for peripherals because they like having fancy connectors nobody uses (Firewire, Thunderbolt)
#137 - Triskiller (02/09/2013) [-]
Sounds kinda strange to me, sucks that it happened to you. I know how expensive those computers can be, so you are entitled to some quality hardware. I hope you did make a big fuss about it in the Apple store, because this just sounds like plain bullshit to me.
I know about the connectors, I bought one for HDMI because I wanted to connect my Macbook to my new TV. When I tried to do that for the first time I noticed I had no HDMI port...
But I take the faults with all the good things, I really enjoy my Macbook, and wouldn't have it any other way. :)

Those people that made Homecoming had nothing to do with the original conception of Pyramid Head, Team Silent did, but they disbanded after Silent Hill 3. The only remaining members were some of the art department and Akira Yamaoka, whom abandoned ship after Silent Hill: Shattered Memories was finished.
Those new guys knew, and know, nothing about the lore or anything, they just looked at what people enjoyed in prior games and mashed all that crap together to create a disjointed version of what was something truly special.
