Very mature, folks--I don't need to act high and mighty if I am higher and mightier than you are---both in education and morality. Think about this: How many automatic weapons would Jesus own?
....and if you need a bigger gun to think that you're a bigger man, then you have more Freudian issues than I care to address. Good day, that is all.
Why would you use a character that doesn't exist? Why not use Superman or Iron man?
This whole thread has gone to **** but its hilarious now.....(bringing the topic back to the point at hand)---The point of concern for everyone is the loss of innocent life. Does taking guns away prevent the loss of life? No, it doesn't stop murderers and criminals that don't follow laws as it is. We don't live in a utopian society and never will some things will never change. However I think it would help drastically to never speak that persons name on a news media clip EVER. That way you prevent copy cats from trying to get negative fame like so many people have tried in the last year....
The problem with this debate is that both sides have their points. The gun-ban people are right that is you decrease the supply of guns, you will decrease the number of gun-related deaths and injury. This is not only evident in statistical data, but also is in-line with basic economic theory that the less suply means less opportunity (for guns to be used). The dumb part of their argument is that banning "assault weapons" will solve the problem of school shootings. It won't.
The pro-gun rights people also have a point. Restricting gun rights is anti-liberty and likely unconstitutional on the Federal level. Also, the banning of guns will not stop bad guys from using guns in the future. However, they are RIFE with dumb arguments such as: guns are like baseball bats and we don't ban baseball bats! Another is that guns don't kill people, but somehow video games are to blame. DUMB ARGUMENT! Another is that we need the guns to defend us from our government. If the armed citizens of Afganistan could not defeat our troops or the Army of Iraq, what makes you think Bubba in his Cabin or even the state of Alabama is going to fare better. DUMB Argument.
Once again, the Assault weapon ban is not going to pass. The NRA owns the house and it is just not going to happen. That pretty much leaves the background checks and I am 100% for 100% of gun applicants having to pass a background check. Furthermore, this is the only thing that will pass and make everyone look good for the next election.
