I want the same thing as you
People fetishize your politics as well and call for Europeans to legalise carrying arms (Crowder did this)

Why can't we let Europe be Europe and America be America?

Crowder was Canadian and is an American citizen now. So thats a bit different.

Canada is going to have to swing some sort of way.

I don't know that much about Canada

It doesn't mean he should recommend the American system for Europe though. From what I've seen he jas a lack of understanding when it comes to European politics.

Either way we both want to and are living our own way so I guess we're good

Absolute freedom would need to have a society that is a system of anarchy, but at that point, people would feel no restraints, and the entire society would turn into a shithole.

Having our freedoms restricted to the most minor point while maintaining society should be the goal in my opinion. That would mean maintaining a smaller level of governance, you don't need restrictions in terms of law or government.

It's a lot better at taking a life than a knife. It makes spree killing A skilled martial artist can easily disable a knife assailant. Nobody can do shit when being mowed down by assault rifles.

Guess what, bombs are illegal as well.

You see the difference beween a knife or a fist and a firearm is that firearm is literally made to kill. Knives and fists are tools and unless you're going to mutilate the entire population they have to stay as a necessity.

"Rocks can be used to kill people therefore I need a missile"
Do you see the fallacy?

I believe it's to late for the United States, too many firearms is already in circulation. I don't really see the problem. You can have your wild west over there while we have a stricter society over here. In the end we're both happy with the legislations where we live.

They can fire back if they have weapons too. Most european's and generally people with zero firearms experience generally have a false idea of a weapons capabilities and how efficient they really are. The problem is that disarming the common man doesn't take guns out of the equation, it disarms those who would potentially be able to defend themselves against someone else with a weapon. More guns don't equal more crime, more murders, or more violence.

Gun deaths still occur in areas where they are illegal, and bombs are still built fairly easily and used while being illegal. Something being illegal doesn't mean it gets eliminated from use.

-"Rocks can be used to kill people therefore I need a missile"
Do you see the fallacy? -
No because that's completely misrepresenting the entire argument. No one is saying everyone needs a missile. I only see your fallacy of inflating my argument to seem ridiculous and less agreeable.

I don't have a problem with Europeans not having firearms, it's not your culture and I understand that. I have a problem with people pointing at Europe and fetishizing what your policies are, and claiming we should follow suit.

People with mental illnesses often can't contribute to society. And in some cases, the illness and inability to contribute is lifelong.
One solution could be to not jail for drug-related charges when it comes to personal use, but only fine.

I don't see how legalizing would reduce the use of it. Legitimising the use of marijuana will make it much acceptable, and as such the amount of first time users would rise.

The war on drugs has been disastrous and it's only increased the amount of drug abuse and use in the United States and flooded our prisons. It's also hurt central American nations by allowing the cartels to become powerful enough to destabilize entire provinces, leading to greater immigration to the US.

Portugal decriminalized all drugs up to a certain amount and about 15 years later their drug abuse levels have halved and their use is actually down. Mainly it destroys that black market.

Good. That is exactly what I want. The common man should never be trusted with firearms.

We have a much lower crime rate than the US. Granted this isn't necessarily related to firearms being reserved for police and military, but as it sits I see no reason for trusting the "common man" with lethal firearms. A killswitch is not a human right.

Thanks to you guys Europe will soon be in the same place, I bet our crime rate will skyrocket past that of the US, especially violent crimes like assault and rape

A firearm isn't a "kill switch". It isn't any better at taking a life than a knife, or a bomb. It may he more efficient or it may kill at longer ranges, but it doesn't kill any more easily. Even as a cop, we're trained that a knife, baton, tazer, vehicle, pan, or even fists in many cases, are just as lethal as firearms and can be a prerequisite for lethal for the. Also, even in the United States, far more crimes are prevented and lives saved than are taken away by firearms.
