It's very easy to find a theater (Well, depending on size of city) that has two or three emergency exits, and the other ways out goes through a lobby. Not exactly hard to block completely.
I only said I am for possession in home. I didn't even mention how I think people should be restricted while buying.
And what is your method that would magically root all of these people out?
So you agree with me?
I think we're like the geth and heretic and geth. A slight programming difference makes you arrive to the conclusion 2>1, while I arrive at 3>2, when fed the same information.
I'm not even going to get into this.
Have you ever been put into a perfect choke when caught unaware? They're hard to get out of, even if you can manhandle the person just through strength in any other situation.
Because they are restricted.
88 guns per 100 people.
808 vehicles per 1000 people.
They kill a lot of people because they are legal. If you truly believe cars are as dangerous as guns I don't see why you would even consider getting guns legalized. Let alone if you had the realistic and sound point of view that GUNS are more dangerous than cars.
No, they kill people because shit happens. Shit will always happen. Banning things based off of gut reactions even though every single piece of data contradicts your gut won't change that.
Even if you believe you can predict what would happen under these retarded conditions you really can't tell me you can. You remember old west shootouts in movies? You really think some of america is even ready to chop fucking carrots without being a danger to others? You are kind of fucking yourself over there, as you think most people can come up to me and kill me with their bare hands.
I don't get it. Are you suggesting that people wouldn't be able to kill you with their bare hands? We all have the capacity to do it, we just don't have the will, so to speak, to do it.
Also you didn't address my rebuttal to your "high guns per capita argument" which pro carry law people always throw out.
I have multiple firearms. I alone start skewing the statistics. Some people have fucking arsenals, able to set the ratio to 1:1 for their neighborhood even if all of their neighbors have absolutely zero guns.
How about your favorite country ever, switzerland? which most of you think has people walking around with guns on their back?
"To carry firearms in public or outdoors (and for an individual who is a member of the militia carrying a firearm other than his Army-issue personal weapons off-duty), a person must have a Waffentragschein (gun carrying permit), which in most cases is issued only to private citizens working in occupations such as security.
Let's compare Washington, my most favorite state, to California, my least favorite state.
Washington is a shall issue state. Meaning all I have to do is pretty much just on a whim decide "Fuck it, I want to start carrying a pistol." Bam, 3 days later I got my permit. Within the week I'll have my gun and ready to go. Or, I'm walking around, and decide to walk into the local sporting store. Bam, left with a shotgun and some ammo.
California, 10 day waiting period. May issue. Not allowed to carry a gun in the fucking CASE my 1911 came with.
It is, however, quite common to see a person serving military service to be en route with his rifle."
And here, while not exactly the norm, you'll see just some average Joe walking around with his rifle on his back and it ain't no thang.
Switzerland, where mostly everyone has a gun, and almost no one carries them, DOES have a lower crime rate! Thank you for helping my point!
And the states with the most lax gun laws, specifically the carry laws, have the lower crime rates.
I tried to find a country where the gov. is actually stupid enough to allow everyone to carry guns, but the only ones I could find were....um... oh yeah, those 3rd world countries that most people consider war zones.
Look at all of the states that have open carry.
