    "Guns and Gun Rights"
    On 1/19/2013 at 6:15:19 PM, Varan101 started the thread:
    So what do you guys think about what's going on?

    To be honest I find it laughable that the government thinks it could even enforce a gun ban even if its only a certain type of gun. Do you really think they are going to go into the inner city and disarm the murdering gang thugs? Nope not gonna put their ass on the line to take them from people who actually use them for harm.

    Also unless they actually search house to house there's no fucking way they could remove the guns that are in circulation. The majority of them will probably never be used.

    I also think the mental health debate is laughable. Sure people go crazy and kill other people. Who is qualified to evaluate someone and whether they can own a gun? What if someone is perfectly sane at the time of purchasing a firearm and goes fucking nuts later? Its going to be a complete waste of money. Most of the people who are insane don't even know or even WANT help. Do you really think they are going to seek it out? Maybe a few. But not enough to make a difference.

    Both sides have put forth some ridiculous logic. I've seen signs for pro gun supporters saying that the second amendment is from God himself. Really? Look I realize you want to keep your guns to be able to fight against a tyrannical government if ever needed. But the reality is that you're going to need a massive military defection to be able to win a war against the government. They are so much better armed than you.

    Obama may try to pass some sort of gun ban but we all know that it will never survive the Congress much less the Supreme Court. I think he knows this and he's just trying to create a circus show to make himself look like a folk hero to his base.

    Well, I tend to agree with the right wing commercials on the hunting channel.

    "If we outlaw guns; the only ones that will have guns, will be the outlaws"

    Just my two cents, recycled and spat out again.

    No seriously, Every day they make it harder for normal citizens to obtain legal guns. While 'people doing illegal activity' can acquire guns as easy as a acquiring a half ounce of weed.

    And there guns are high fire power, semi automatic killing machines when put in the wrong hands; like those of a criminal, especially gangs and hate groups, among others. Compared to our semi automatic shotguns, Cabala's quality hunting rifles, and assorted handguns that "us folks", the American citizen responsible enough to own a gun safely, its not contest.

    That's why gun control laws specifically target military-grade assault weapons and high capacity handguns, not your five-round Remington 870.

    And, no, you can't easily acquire an illegal handgun the way you can a dimebag. Almost all "illegal" guns in this country are originally purchased from a licensed firearm wholesaler. You can't just grow Glocks in a quarter-acre of a cornfield.

    I also sincerely hope you're not one of those insane weirdos who think the government is trying to disarm the populace in order to impose some kind of fascist state. You're a moron if you think that's true.

    How about semi-automatic rifle? That's what I would go with, unless I wanted to use scary language to pass ineffective and unnecessary legislation, and paint gun owners as scary or crazy people.

    Shouldn't these anti-Gun rights politicians be going after handguns anyway? Aren't they the weapon of choice for murder and massacre anyway?

    "Semi-automatic rifle" only refers to the firing mechanism, not magazine size and caliber, which are two other factors that I think are just as important.

    I don't have any figures about mass murder weapons, but it seems to me that most of these spree killers use semi-automatic rifles and handguns together.

    For what it's worth, I think proper enforcement of existing gun laws would probably cut the problem down enough where people wouldn't be clamoring for more legislation, but maniac gun nuts who say the same thing are the ones who have made it practically impossible to do so. Background checks are fine, but much of the problem is rooted in licensed gun distributors and wholesalers not being held accountable for selling guns in bulk to unscrupulous third parties. People like to imagine that street criminals and spree killers get their guns from chain-smoking Russian smugglers, but almost all of them come from American businesses.

    Mass-murders account for a very small portion of gun deaths each year, and haven't been historically rising. I think the figure is that assault rifles (it may be rifles period) account for something like 3% of gun deaths annually in the U.S.

    Handguns are the weapon of choice for the vast majority of assailants.

    I think what gets lost in all of this is that the pro gun-control side is just looking for some common ground which can be agreed upon. For some reason handguns are sacred personal defense weapons in the US, so banning them is probably impossible right now. But banning weapons which have high capacity magazines and a high calibre and are designed to kill many humans is kinda reasonable. There's no humane reason to own one unless you are a collector or just enjoy firing these kickass guns in a range, but I think we can agree that's not a good enough reason enough to own a dangerous weapon.

    I do not own guns but I'd very much desire the opportunity to be registered to own/use. Only because it's a United States right to exercise. The government should never be allowed to take rights away, because chances are that it will never be returned.

    Some people may not like guns, but it isn't guns that kill people, it's People. Yeah, I know, to Soccer Moms and sheltered Christians it isn't guns that kill people, but Marilyn Manson's demonic yet deliciously melodic rock music, but I don't listen to them, just his albums.

    Ostro can we please get back to a post a day from you in here, jesus man, what the fuck do I have to do for a little entertainment around here? Do I need to do a little dance? Do I need to come up with a list of things I might need to do? Do I? I don't know. Sometimes I think you just don't care anymore. Once upon a time you would come in to this very thread and thrill us with such sentences as "I have little girly hands" and "I like bears with ass candy" or "green words" and now what do I fucking have to put up with? This? An inactive thread? Some guy with a videogame and bad hair? What are magazines anyway? It's the future dude, magazines are over. I guess they are still in Wegmans but once the old people die out the internet is the future. Why hold a magazine when I can hold my dick instead? I only got two hands and one of them types "omgomgomgomg im cummingggguhfuidbb2uy1gukwifeystr6i7ykuf." For fuck's sake. Now I have made a mess of my keyboard and each keystroke is making the internals of the computer get closer and closer to crusting over and never working again. Do you not want me to have a computer Ostro? Do you not want me here anymore? Then fine, goddamnit, just say so. Just have the courage to say something. "It's over and I'm keeping the jewelry!" Anything. Be a man. I need a burrito. Preferably a breakfast burrito.

    I took a shit at a beer store today that lasted 45 minutes. It was a once-a-year dump in three acts. Pure theatre. Imagine filling your mouth with minestrone, then inflating your cheeks with air, then slapping your cheeks. That's what happened the instant I sat down. Then my butt turned into a clown car of turds. It was ultimately a tragic tale, where the villain, hot chilli peppers, won out over the noble hero of dietary fiber. I passed all phases of matter save plasma and dropped from a lightweight to a featherweight. I had to flush twice during the dump so the toilet wouldn't clog on the final flush when I was finished.
