Re: America - Gun Control

Ive seen the bogan, how about a bit of cultured to go with it? You can not lamblast another country's culture and laws simply because you dont agree with them without encountering opposition. Over 300 million guns in America, the way you guys report it, there should be constant warfare on the stree...

Re: America - Gun Control

I got 7 different responses overnight about the Musket/2nd Amendment issue, and i don't really want to start 7 different conversation on the same issue. So i am not trying to be rude by not replying to everyone individually, just that running 7 discussions on the same topic is not going to very pro...

Re: America - Gun Control

Doesn't change the fact that the 'Musket' theory is historically incorrect. The second amendment did not refer to, in either word or meaning, primitive weaponry. Whether you agree with it, or its practicality, is a different argument entirely. The weaponry was drastically less sophisticated. No one...

Re: America - Gun Control

Why is it that people in his situation choose guns as their instrument to carry out these attacks? I dont know, you will have to ask them. So you don't see any correlation between the easy access and ability to injure and kill a large number of people in a short space of time with the fact that gun...

Re: America - Gun Control

We just had a crazy guy who had no signs of being crazy buy so many weapons and go and kill a whole bunch of people he didn't know. The problem clearly was the access to guns and specifically the type of guns he could get. Earl you clearly have no idea what you are talking about. What you have stat...

Re: America - Gun Control

I don't think a Gatling Gun would have been so easy to sneak into the 32nd floor of the Mandalay somehow, or any of the other mass shooting events that have taken place. And I'm sure that was put into service during the Civil War. Imagine old mate strolling into the Orlando gay club "just keep danc...

Re: America - Gun Control

You do keep up to date with current news or do you find all your news through facebook? There are currently investigations into the impact that misinformation on the internet played in the 2016 Presidential Election. Studies have shown that 66% of Americans use social media for their news, now this...

Re: America - Gun Control

First off, I'm not your 'bro' - I'm probably old enough to be your grandfather. I get that being disrespectful is an attempt to obfuscate the debate but I prefer civility. My previous post was because you didn't want me to clip anything - I simply posted your full comment and now you seem unhappy I...

Re: America - Gun Control

Common man, you took one piece of what i said and blew it out of the water with your corn flakes comment bro.Who is going to say "The internet only has truthful information and nothing else"? Common bro. Like you said there is inherently a lot of truth online and information is so much easier to be...

Re: America - Gun Control

Individual "gun proponents" may not take these positions, but the gun lobby groups, most notably the NRA do and profess to speak on behalf of gun owners. Thanks scoop. Well stop saying that "gun proponents" don't say this or that or believe this or that because the organisations that say they speak...

Re: America - Gun Control

These generalisations: Gun proponents are all about what wont work without ever offering solutions. Gun proponents agree mental stability can be a major factor in many of these mass shootings, yet fought any legislation to stop access by mental disturbed people to guns Gun proponents agree that cri...

Re: America - Gun Control

May I suggest that you move to the safe stateside environment you espouse amongst your gun loving mates and leave us to cower in fear without them. I lived there for years. Wonderful country. May i suggest that you are not without them over here, in fact you are surrounded by them. Guess who has th...

Re: America - Gun Control

As with most topics - gun control, gay marriage, religion, politics etc - it's virtually pointless having the 'discussion' because the people most likely to enter the debate are already totally convinced either for or against the topic. You don't change the fanatics, you can only hope the governmen...

Re: America - Gun Control

It would have certainly been less deadly. He needed multiple weapons because the fire rate was so high the barrels were over heating. If semi automatics alone had been been banned his rate of fire would have been significantly lower. Depending how much practice he had as low as 3 or 4 shots per min...

Re: America - Gun Control

Of course its about why he did it, but a society that does not consider how he was able to do this so easily is destined to have these actions repeated and repeated. Oh wait that is what is already happening! No it's not. So The USA does not have a problem with mass shootings? OK I was mistaken, cl...
