That's the excuse the gun nuts typically use.

Uh… if there was stricter gun laws some of these guns wouldn't be obtained, legally or illegally. It will only make it harder to obtain and then to traffic.

YES the illegal black market will exist, but it will become harder for criminals to obtain them.

And NO, not all guns obtained by gangs are illegal. I've known plenty of people that obtained them legally.

What a stupid post, my gun control arguments are valid due the fact that lunatics like this exists. If that doesn't make sense to you, then I have a hard time to see what would.

Not saying gun control isn't an important discussion that needs to be had, but man, to me we really gotta figure out why this shit keeps happening. What is going on in the heads of these f*cking kids and why are they doing this shit? Good God.

Ill take it a step further. ALL GUNS THAT ARE CURRENTLY ON THE STREETS WERE AT SOME POINT LEGALLY PURCHASED. This is whats so ****ing crazy. These gun nuts are insane. All we want to do is try to make it harder for them to fall into the wrong hands.

I do think there is a relationship between gun culture and the behaviour of these mentally unstable people. Banning guns outright won't do much, but I think restrictions and attaching a stigma to them (like cigarettes) will help towards making them less desirable.

I know you're being hyperbolic but you're right to some extent. There's plenty of guns that were legally purchased and later ended up in the wrong hands, either via theft or they were sold.

In my research, i fojnd out that a very small percentage of guns possessed by criminals were through home invasion. I believe it was roughly 5%. So while it was an exaggeration on my part, its more than true
