That's not it at all.

If someone wants to shoot some place up, they'll just get a gun illegally. A ban on guns isn't gonna make it harder to obtain guns illegally, it's just gonna make it harder to defend yourself legally

Where do you think the criminals get their illegally obtained guns? Do you think they come out of the factory with their numbers filed off? It's probably purchased by someone without a criminal record whose name is placed on a registry list. The number is etched off so the purchaser can't be found out if the gun is found.

Simply put, if the purchaser can't buy a gun, then the number can't be filed off, and the criminal can't buy the gun. Only way of purchasing weapons would be to import them which makes the prices of the weapons skyrocket since someone else is taking a risk and spending a lot more money to travel.

Most illegal weapons are stolen from police. A lot are also sourced from mexico, seeing as the border is like a sponge as far as keeping things out is concerned.

Also it's basically impossible to get a gun if you have a criminal record. It hard to get a gun if you have a clean record, let alone with one. In most states you need to have been either a cop or military to get a license.

Then don't let the cops have guns either. I know the mexican border is huge too so it would be really difficult to prevent guns coming over but someone coming through the border would be taking a huge risk of being caught, they'll want to put up the price of their guns. With those high prices, my guess is that your not-so-friendly neighborhood crack-head won't be able to afford one and will just have to skip holding up the local gas station.

As added preventative measures, they should really up the age of gun licences to over 21 or 25 or something. That's great that you must have served in the military or police in order to be able to get a licence. At least that way, the person who will purchase the weapon has been trained to use it in a safe, yet effective manner

nigga you just went full retard.
"Lets handicap ourselves just on the off chance we give someone else an advantage!"

Also you can't make gun licenses that old because hunting is still a way of life in a lot of the USA. That would make it basically impossible for a lot of people to survive.

Obviously some officers will need guns like SWAT teams and special officers such as detectives. But don't just hand them out all willy nilly. Here in Ireland, only a select few officers have guns. Our detectives, ERU team, and regional support units.

Ok, so if someone is a hunter, they get a special licence but they must prove that they hunt for their living, keep record of every piece of ammunition purchased and fired. It's not that difficult to think of a solution.

That's still not gonna solve anything. All it means is our police are not as safe as they could be.

And, as a reminder

Both finland and Switzerland have nearly 3x as many guns per capita in the US, but still have less crime. Guns!=crime.

Well they didn't sign up to be picking daisies so of course they're not going to be safe but at least their weapons won't be stolen as much. Maybe if they were equipped with something that is potentially non-lethal, or placing some sort of tracker in the weapon, or making them so undesirable by colouring them pink. Either way, there's always a solution.

And since Switzerland and Finland have more weapons, then maybe the problem lies in education or getting people to have a different outlook on guns. A friend of mine is in Texas at the moment and a bank there said they'd give him a free gun if he setup an account with them. My friend laughed thinking it was a joke but the teller didn't even crack a smile. That's some crazy shit! Firstly, what kind of special licence does the bank have that allows them to just hand out a gun? And secondly, why is that a feature for someone setting up an account? If my bank were handing me a gun, I'd be thinking that my money isn't so safe there since they're basically saying "Here's a gun because we can't protect your money"

The giving out a gun thing is a lie, that's some vintage meme you've got there. That's overwhelmingly illegal. It costs thousands of dollars and takes years to get an FFL.

And no, there really isn't a solution. Pink guns? Paint that shit.
Trackers? Remove it
Non lethal? Cops carry tasers

So the prosthetics actually cause him to use less energy? Because if he were wearing regular prosthetics, he would have to lift the prosthetics with his remaining muscles as he walks, and balance using the remaining muscles as well.

Snorks are devils caught in The Zone and mutated. Nothing is safe from them.

Hiding of the blessed safety rock won't stop them, like it stops bloodsuckers.

I just looked up what the fuck a snork, as i'm not a hardcore stalker player. I clicked images and was immediately struck by that helpless feeling that I got every time I entered an infected area. Those things kept me from playing for a few days, honestly, they terrify me. I know a grown man shouldn't be this way but seriously. They're like the hunters for left4dead but... NOT 4 CASULS!!!!
