I get it...guns are cool. Plenty of friends who have assault weapons and pistols and I love going to the gun ranges with them to fire them off. It's a hobby for many of them. And I have thought of owning a gun or two.

I also have two kids now....I'm a Dad.
What happen last week is deeply disturbing if you are a parent.
So because of the age group on these boards I think few can feel me.

I don't think rifles and even hand guns should be banned....but creating and enforcing stronger and efficient gun laws is needed.

It's not the only problem at hand with this mess....we have the mental issue side to handle....but it sends the right message. And really why do we need 30 round clips? Hunting????? Sports??? Zombie attacks?????
And we must have strict strict laws to obtain and keep firearms.
More so them ever right now.

And the argument is a stupid one anyway because a car is built for transportation while a gun is built for killing/hurting.

Different situations calls for different solutions.

Guns are banned in UK and Japan and they have the lowest gun crime in the world.

Why do you need a car that goes faster than 30 mph?

You may want a car that goes faster but you don't need it, do you? I didn't think so.


This country has more guns than cars, and YET more people are killed by cars than guns in the USA each year. Cars are bigger threat to human safety and loss of life than guns are.

So even though cars aren't designed to kill (just like knives or baseball bats aren't), they do more things than that. We need to ban cars asap! But what do I know? After all if guns were banned, Nicole Brown Simpson would still be alive today, right?

You argument is completely flawed, you're comparing apples to watermelons and just trolling.

Sorry, but facts are facts. It's not comparing apples to watermelons, it's more like comparing fuji apples to gala apples if anything. Anyway the point isn't comparing a car to a gun. It's comparing the effects of enacting a law to prevent people from being killed one way with those of another law enacted to prevent people from being killed another way.

Except that you never respond to any points we bring up, you just post the same old tired talking points we've heard for the last twenty years.

The very definition of a troll.

Any legislation to change gun laws will be a true test of the Obama administration. He's a lame duck, nothing to lose so there should be no problem with him throwing all his support behind new laws.

The UK has had gun control for decades, so when are they gonna start rounding up Brits and executing them

BTW, all those countries were under authoritarian regimes BEFORE they enacted strict gun control...

I hope you also realize that under Saddam Hussein, Iraqi households had more guns per family than the US, still they couldn't do anything against that regime. Admit it, if a government with armored vehicles, tanks, helicopter, jets, chemical, biological and tactical nuclear weapons wants to **** with you, you have little chance with that 9mm Baretta you got.

I'd rather he focus on legalizing drugs. He'd do more for gun violence that way, honestly.

If you ban guns, criminals still get guns. It's just you at the disadvantage.
The UK banned guns and surprisingly gun crime is up almost double.

Too bad all the revolutions in human history had equal odds and still worked. It's more complex then the entire military just wrecking the civilians sh*t.

Not to mention Iraq's army folded like a house of cards instead of bothering.

You're also implying there was no sectarian & ethnic conflicts in iraq think "divide and conquer" and also implying a large number of those gun-owning iraqi's were pro saddam.
