    This argument makes no sense.

    Apparently judging from what I’ve seen, Human Rights is just as complicated as rocket science to politicians.

    Not all Americans – unfortunately the “thick as fuck” ones are very vocal

    Very true.

    Yeah, let’s pretend this is about rights instead of liking things that kill while making loud noises.

    It’s also my human right not to get accidentally shot by some trigger happy dump chick.

    Self defense = shooting someone because they pissed you off

    Or in some states because they look different than you and they didn’t drop dead when you attacked them first…

    Guns are for pussies who can’t handle confrontations with their hands.

    Perhaps they can use their brains.

    my only argument is it’s too much power, pretty much what reppy said. Mentally ill geek with a knife… pretty bad… mentally ill geek with a gun…. bodies.

    What the hell are you talking about. Projectile trajectory, chemical propellant, complex mechanical triggering, Firearms are very much so rocket science!

    Note – people in developed countries all over the word manage to defend themselves without high powered concealed weapons.

    What’s the point? Aren’t most college kids minors?

    Make guns less easily accessible and you’ll have less Virginia Tech shootings. Every other country has colleges that don’t have shooting sprees and crime and they have a fuck less amount of guns.

    No, most college kids are adults.
    Also, there are countries with lower gun ownership and a higher firearm-related homicide rate:
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_gun_ownership
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-related_death_rate

    Also, I think the idea here is that one person with a gun will be less effective at killing large numbers of people if enough of those people also have guns. I’m not sure how true that is, as I haven’t seen any studies on it, though. But, on the other hand, I haven’t seen any studies that show that banning guns from campuses reduce shootings.

    I think that they are hoping that at the gun saturation point, where everyone has a gun, no one will want to commit crime because anyone can defend themselves, vis a vis the Mutually Assured Destruction

    That idea requires everyone to follow the Rational Actor Model, which, as history has proven, humanity does not follow. Following that, the argument is ignorant of all the factors and can, and likely will, lead to even more dangerous situations.

    Although, I’ll have to plot all those to see if there is a correlation.

    Lets just look at those lists for a second. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-related_death_rate
    How far down that list do you need to go to get to an IMF rated “advanced economy”? Oh shit look at that The United States, who would have thought? Followed by Finland, who has a rate half to a third that of the US.

    Trivializing proper gun safety by calling it a “point-and-click interface” is exactly why you shouldn’t be allowed to carry a gun around.

    Professional militaries have enough trouble getting their people to “point” their guns at the enemy instead of friendlies… how are we supposed to trust some moron lurching their way through college with that responsibility?

    Because otherwise there’d be no military. It’s mostly young people that join up from what I have heard.

    Guns are too easy and clean to use. Lets make carrying a sword mandatory instead, and see what happens to crime figures.

    To me, self-defense is finding a way out of a dangerous situation. That’s what most martial arts are based around. If you pull a gun out, it’s just a retaliation, an escalation. It’s a desire to grievously hurt something that scares you. It’s strange to think that having the power to hurt people makes you safer.

    Yelling, belittling, mocking… This guy is a troll. BTW the only guy we lost in Iraq happened when the fucking idiot and his buddy were playing with their pistols on duty with their body armor off. Got him right in the chest; fucking idiots the both of them. These were two “highly trained” individuals. They were in-country and had been through 4mo intensive training. I don’t know about you but I know a hell of a lot of people I wouldn’t want to have a gun under any circumstances. That being said, I am pro 2nd amendment. That being said,… Read more »

    I just might quit my job and go into professional home invasions if guns were made illegal. Come on people, if guns were made illegal only the law abiding citizens would comply with the law. Do you really think all of the criminals would turn in their guns? You would then have a huge pool of citizens unable to defend themselves and a criminal populations who would have no risk of facing the ultimate penalty if they were to break into your house.

    Yeah, because a baseball bat to your head won’t kill you at all.

    One less moron on earth.
