    Default In which we discuss: Guns, Second Amendment, Weaponry, and Violence

    It’s an injustice that we respectfully mourn notable deaths of celebrities and artists in great detail in our ‘raining’ threads, but when a mass tragedy occurs, we clutter the discussion with politics and arguments that are no different today than they were yesterday. It’d be nice to move that discussion here, where those who want to see and discuss those arguments can. And hopefully the threads of the tragedy itself can be a place to respect and mourn.

    we hear this every time a tragedy that could/should have been preventable happens. "this isn't the right time". yes it is, it's absolutely the time to have a national conversation about this. it's a topic that is quickly (and wrongfully) becoming the 3rd rail in American politics now that neither side lists gun control as a major party platform.

    whatever. I'll just post this here.

    Marijuana has a better chance of becoming legalized nationwide before more gun control happens.

    Eh, no matter how many kids get shot I can't shake the feeling that sometime relatively soon all those automatic weapons might come in REAL handy.

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    It would be intellectually dishonest to equate the NRA's push for automatic weapons and deregulation with the brilliant, pragmatic language of our constitution.

    I say we remove pencil sharpeners from schools. I know people who have stabbed others with sharp tipped pencils. And without guns, it's only a matter of time before sharpened pencils become the weapon of choice.

    While I do not believe we should take away all guns, there's definately a problem when it's perfectly legal in most places to go buy an AR-15. Thanks, NRA!

    If these children would've been trained properly and allowed their conceal and carry this never would've happened.

    You're right we should all be prepared. How naive I am to think I am safe walking around the streets of any neighborhood especially my own, I need to ask santa for some kevlar, a nine, a holster and a permit.

    Having lived with guns in the house and without guns in the house, I can tell you one thing: I didn't feel any more safe with them in the house than I do without.

    regardless of whether he had a gun or not this guy was looking to do some kind of damage. if a gun wasn't available he would've used a knife or something else. The real issue should be finding a way to deal with these psychopaths because this is going to happen again guns or not.

    Yes he would have stabbed 30 people to death just as easily as he shot them with an automatic weapon. Good point.

    I really doubt cowardice crazy assholes like this would be as inclined to go on killing sprees if it wasn't as easy as pointing and squeezing. Also if we had stronger background checks the second part would potentially take care of itself, how many of these schmucks obtain these legally? Most

    Marooko what the fuck are you talking about it's my argument? I said I don't like people having handguns, I am all for hunting rifles and shotguns.

    i'm not saying the crime would've been equal. kids still would've died. he was looking to do damage. a gun just made it easier.

    Yes and we all have the same military training and ability to figure out exactly how to do what Timothy McVeigh did. Right?

    Yes and that's the point. Killing shouldn't be made "easier".

    A car filled to the brim with gas makes an excellent killing device. It can do much more damage than a pair of 9s or a knife..

    So your theory is, once we create stricter gun laws, people will turn to their motor vehicles as a means of killing? It will become a weapon of choice so to speak.

    No.

    equating something that can be used to kill (baseball bats, knives, pencil sharpeners and now cars filled with gas) to something that was invented specifically to kill is silly at best.

    Yes Thermite bomb building will become an epidemic if we create gun restrictions. These are all very intelligent arguments guys. I'm glad I stopped in for a bit. Keep em' coming.
