Everyone who wants to do drugs already is.

You can get guns over the internet without ever talking to someone.

Or in a lot of places you can just go talk to someone on a street corner.

- Alcohol was way easier for people to get than weed at my school.

- Everybody who wants to do drugs already does? Not true. I would like to smoke a bit of marijuana, but I don't do it because of drug tests at work. If it became legal and didn't effect my job, then I would smoke it. I know I'm not the only one as well. Additionally, if people could smoke it out in the open like they can cigarettes, they would likely smoke it more often rather than just at home or parties.

- People can buy guns over the internet. But teens would need a credit or debit card from their parents first in order to buy online. Additionally, some of the kids would not want their parents to discover what arrived in the mail.

- The socially awkward kids that want to shoot up a place may not be willing to go talk to people on the street corner, and you won't find people on the street corner selling illegal shit in places outside of big cities.

Selling Weed
Selling pills/coke











Selling guns

Selling uranium

Thats the differences in severity. People that sell illegal guns are in a whole different league. It's like comparing pop warner to the nfl

I'm starting to think that Milton guy is just trolling.

Credit card? no lol where are you getting this illegal arms dealers don't want credit cards.

I'm sorry but you're wrong you're just looking at your personal (rather odd) experiences , see the study.

So how is one different over and over I've been asking how the government can restrict access to something where it has failed completely at restricting access to everything else.

I've posted studies, shown examples, like Mexico where gun control is failing and you guys just ignore them.

Do the US compare itself to Mexico?

The majority of the western world have less gun violence than the US and the majority of those countries have gun control.

what annoys me is that it is too easy to troll. you only have to go on to a website that disagrees with a topic and copy and paste. you can waste your time responding until they either change the topic or they just stop replying (if they can't find content to counter your reply).

Sure it can. Plus, why would the principle of the 2nd amendment change just because the military now has more powerful weapons? What sense does that make?

The automatic weapons, the assault rifles, the thousands and thousands of ammo. That's overboard.

I'd be willing to bet that in most cases where a person is in danger a can of pepper spray or a tazer would be much more effective than a gun.

This isn't the old west where everyone needs a pistol on them at all times. That would just lead to more disasters. Imagine if 4 people were packing in a crowded movie theater and a smoke bomb went off and everyone started shooting...
People are already allowed to carry guns all over the place, and nothing like that has ever happened.
