Here we go, back to ole faithful "guns don't kill people, people kill people"...
And as was observed recently. Then we should allow North Korea to continue their nuclear ICBM program. After all nuclear bombs don't kill people - people kill people.

Re: America - Gun Control

Having tighter gun registration would have helped police identify some one possibly slipping over the edge. 33 purchases of semi automatic weapons in a 12 month period is extraordinary by any standard. Ok, say he had to register these guns with the feds, then what next? They turn up to his house an...

Re: America - Gun Control

The politicians will have to change the constitution. Good luck with that. Pretty sure that they changed the constitution in the first place to allow arms. That's why it's called the "second amendment." And as Geo said, it was a volatile time in history and the highest powered readily available wea...

Re: America - Gun Control

Pretty sure the Boston bombing happened post Oklahoma City. Its a fallacy to claim that all mass killings are gun related. Boston bombers, Nice truck attacker, London knife wielders, Nigerian machete attackers, Japanese machete attackers, Chinese long knife attackers, 911 terrorist attackers etc et...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Let this team settle, players will come on the market but this team needs to Gel. I doubt we will be in the top 8 next year and considering how much change has happened, that is fine. They might surprise you. I dont think we will see much in the first half of the season but in the second half (Afte...

Re: America - Gun Control

This guy was hellbent on killing as many as possible, as quickly as possible. Guns were his apparatus. If he had no access to them, he may well have used bombs, gas etc... It is not about HOW he did it. It is about WHY he did it. He tried to use his guns to create a bomb....he failed. Oh and good l...

Re: America - Gun Control

I dont think they will ever change the Gun laws in the States, Its as simple as that. They will eventually. Up till WW2 no one really gave a crap about the 2nd amendment. Give it a bit of time and we will find something else to get our nickers in a twist over. I would even go so far as to suggest i...

Re: America - Gun Control

So if America was disarmed then the Las Vegas shooting would have been worse ? I mean at some point I think that you have to be rational. Of course you are entitled not to be and it sounds like you have chosen that option. It would have certainly been less deadly. He needed multiple weapons because...

Re: America - Gun Control

I am a gun proponent, and i don't think i am guilty of any of the above. So not sure why a post full of generalisations was directed at me. What generalization are you talking about? All four of the examples I gave were stopped at the legislative stage by the pro gun lobby over the last 10 years.

Re: America - Gun Control

You don't NEED a gun to hunt, period. But that's just being stupid. I'm getting the distinct feeling that you don't like me for some reason MG. What's hurt your feelings? I have no personal opinion of you either way. I dont debate people I debate issues. Gun proponents are all about what wont work ...

He doesn't.

And there are many legitimate uses of semi-automatic rifles in hunting situations.
To bad that wasn't what he said. There is a big difference between legitimate use and need.

Re: America - Gun Control

So even though you admit the facts indicate a drop in gun related homicide since gun ownership has increased, you still claim the law is flawed? If there were other contributing factors as you have posed, then surely these areas should be concentrated upon as they are working? I am really sorry but...

Re: America - Gun Control

Its intellectually lazy to just cry "cherry pick" instead of attempting to figure out the relationship between crime and legal gun ownership. The fact that all violent crime decreased does absolutely nothing to invalidate the statistics. Since you are not disputing the figures, then what exactly ar...

Yet as legal gun ownership has increased nation-wide, the rate of gun violence actually decreased (Center for Disease Control statistics between 1993-2013).
Nice cherry pick given all violent crime involving any sort of weapon dropped during the same period.

Re: America - Gun Control

You asked for proposals and ideas to stop the violence. If they did that they'd have less gun deaths. That it seems impractical in the US is sad but accurate as things currently stand. But moving even incrementally in that direction is, IMO, a worthy cause. The NRA runs a very specific play book fo...

Re: America - Gun Control

2. Generic gun control does nothing to reduce gun crime. Criminals don't care about laws... that's why they are criminals. They will still access their illegal guns and they will still commit their crimes. If you cannot restrict the flow of illegal weapons into a geographical area, which is almost ...
