quote: I'm wasting my time on people who claim to be in an advanced society and who clearly resort to barbaric thoughts and arguments.
quote: You really want to fight tyranny with 1 gun?
quote: So the fact that you choose to read the part that GW wrote about baring arms and then forget the part where it is written " in god we trust " on the money you use everyday as a reminder of their mind set, just ignorant.
quote: Canada illiminated its gun registry last year. It was too costly and didn't have an effect on gun related crimes.
quote: Australia banned guns in 1996 after the Port Arthur massacre, gun related deaths fell sharply by about 50% since then. (or 2 thousand people saved every decade.)
quote: it is difficult for one person to intentionally kill a large group of people using anything other than a gun.
quote: Is any restriction (IE. licensing requirements and registration) an infringement on our rights to bear arms? The only reason I would say no is because licensing rules and insurance rules for cars doesn't keep us from being able to drive, only makes sure that everyone driving has a certain level of expertise in operating a car. The same could be said about guns and gun safety.
quote: I don't care about any other american death, but waccos that goes into public places and shoot everybody, this gotta stop.
quote: I'm in Canada and i not need an M16 to defend my ass cause i know the likelihood of running on a crazy man with an assault riffle is small. Simple kung fu can save me against most canadian dangers.

quote: I didn't downplay anything
quote: The overwhelming majority were caused by illegal handguns.
quote: The previous assault weapons ban did nothing to curb violence.
quote: That ban was lifted in 2004. Of the 12 deadliest shootings in US history 6 of them have taken place since 2007.
quote: On the flip side, how many individual criminals are responsible for each type of crime. If someone with a knife kills 1-3 people on average, yet someone with an assault weapon kills 9-20 on average, this means that assault riffles will make a criminal that much more effective at harming others. Yes, assault weapons do not make someone become a criminal, but it allows criminals to do that much more harm before being stopped.
quote: 323 out of over 9k gun deaths were by "assault" rifles496 killed by a hammer650 killed by a knife12k by drunk drivers
quote: But fundamentally, 9/11 happened because we lulled ourselves into a false belief that violence was never a solution.
quote: If the problem are crasy people, what will you do against it?
quote: Right to bear arms to defend yourselves. AH! A bazooka won't save you if the sniper shoots first.
quote: Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.
quote: The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
quote: [A]llow only the type of guns that were used when the second ammendent [sic] was written.
quote: Obviously its a bigger issue than can be debated here but ignoring the ease and availability of very powerful weaponry available in the US and its relation to gun crime is just ignoring facts -
quote: and anyone who has actually seen any of the video games most of today's youth are playing....its a wonder we haven't had even more tragedies.
quote: The game clearly does not involve shooting at people or zombies or any other living thing. It looks like you shoot at targets.
quote: I think the real motivation behind the controversy is that some people just want to ban guns altogether, and anything that reminds them of guns or shooting (even shooting at paper targets at a range) should be banned in their opinion.
quote: Really Jason? Obviously no actual characters in a videogame are alive. You're splitting hairs to try and defend your $h!t article.There's a big difference between a game that tries to teach you about gun safety and a game that's just gratuitous violence. I don't see anything wrong with either but you cant call them the same.

quote: The NRA blamed public violence on video games and other media works. Read the transcript of their speech if you don't believe me.
quote: through vicious, violent video games with names like 'Bulletstorm,' 'Grand Theft Auto,' 'Mortal Kombat' and 'Splatterhouse.
quote: blobs of pixels
quote: Deflecting blame/responsibility away from ones-self onto a person or object is a Liberals way of thinking.
