I merely suggested reducing the number of guns that are in circulation...How do you suppose for this to occur? How about we switch this up a level, and say, reduce the amount of children who are abducted. It's impossible because the problems are in a GREY AREA, you sod.
Calling me a clump of turf really hurts my feelings, you know.
The same goes for the black markets and underground trades. Besides, if we are still living in fear when it comes to the child sex ring leaders and the leaders of drug cartels -- we certainly aren't going to do anything about the off-marketing of weaponry.
Since Newtown is the event that started this debate and brough Piers Morgan's big mouth to the fore, commencing this thread, let's look at that. Did the shooter, a kid with Asperger Syndrome, obtain these weapons through the black market? No, he got them from his mother, who had taught him to shoot them, for his own good.
My point is that even had his mother gone through a licensing process, I'm sure that her son would not have. Raising awareness that guns are deadly weapons, coupled with proper training would have been able to avert this, or at least lessen the tragedy. I'm thinking about the innocent children that died here, not the pricks that say "we need more guns because of this!"
I may not agree with the second amendment,All it does is state a flexible freedom. Guns are a part of that freedom and are imperative for survival. The guns aren't doing the killing. It's the fucking idiots who think they own this world.
Guns are not imperative for survival - I've lived for nearly 30 years and have never once depended upon a gun for my survival. And as for fucking idiots who think they own this world, that's where you find a massive stereotype of America.
I'm not making a social declaration, merely a statistical one - less guns, equals less chances of one ending up in the wrong hands. If you're too much of a hot headed idiot to realise it, then you're merely adhering to international stereotyping.Idiot. What does taking away guns from the citzens have anything to do with the outlaws? Jesus, what world do you live in?
I don't know, perhaps because there are less guns available in shops, there would be less robberies of gunsmiths and gun shops, where crooks get away with weapons, for using in crime? Perhaps you've not considered that and you'd be so kind as to not insult me when we're having a polite argument. A difference in opinion does not make me an idiot.
The question I have is, does this take place for everyone who purchases a gun legally in the United States?It should be mandatory for people to not only know how to use a gun, but to know that death and killing isn't something you experience in games. The damned social media is always sensoring the gruesome details that a lot of people don't really understand the genuine experience of murder. They become desensitized and this clashes with their negative emotions in their damned fallouts. Which leads to them losing their mind and losing sight for everything they once stood for.
Censoring gruesome details? Such as what? I'm sure that the media would have censored this sort of thing for a long time before social media came along. It's hardly that these activities are being glamorised, after all.
Context is everything, you've taken mine as a few fields away.No, you clearly do not understand what you are talking about. You're an idiot.
I understand it better than you're willing to accept and you could not understand a coherent argument if it walked up to you and smacked you square in the face.
