thats fine

Woah, I always thought you were an American. Odd.

lol

California. Illinois. The states with a "shall issue" approach to CPLs. The correlation between crime rates dropping, and gun sales/CPL rates rising.

Yeah but im just wondering what direct connection all three have. I mean if there are more concealed gun carries and guns in general I dont think thats going to keep a career criminal from committing crimes just like that so there must be more to it than that. I guess you could say that a criminal who has been threatened by a gun might stop but I doubt the amount of criminals who have experienced that is enough to bring it down if you get what I mean.

This is the problem I have. Everybody is, as others have put it, attacking the symptom and not the actual problem. Sure, it is extremely easy for them to blame guns, but that, when all is said and done, does not do a damn thing to help solve things such as our mental health problem which I would say is a much bigger concern then people who are hellbent on causing harm using something that's intrinsically neutral.

Yeah thats what im trying to say too, but just with the added part that it wouldnt hurt if guns were a bit harder to get. Not loads, but hopefully it might skim a few off of the top of the people who may do such things.

You do not make examples, you make excuses; you do not solve problems, you shift problems; you do not stand behind your statements, you stand behind your stasis.

As long as you know how to handle your guns and you dont shoot anyone thats fine lol

Calm your furry teats son. I agree with you. All of the anti-gun pansies should read up on Switzerland... There is very low crime rate and very high gun power. In fact. It's a fucking gun capital. They even teach you how to use those babies in school. Switzerland has the balls America never did have.

Discovery should go back to non-stop animal shows. NatWild has taken over for me because they have decent animal shows.

THANK YOU GUNS

I was going to point that out too, there's been a couple of people who've incorrectly been saying "look at china someone killed 22 school kids with a KNIFE". That didn't happen. The whole point is that when a lunatic goes on a rampage with a knife people are less likely to die.

That's part of humanity and always will be. It's like complaining about the sky being blue.
