Ban rocks too i suppose since someone could smash someone's head in? Because thats the same in your mind as walking into a class room of children and taking everyone of them out in less than a few minutes with a mass killing machine.
yeah that makes sense.
This is why you guys are losing your pretend argument. Think more next time.
A lunatic is still gonna find a way to kill people, whether it's making homemade explosives, utilizing vehicles, arson, or what have you. If someone wants you dead, there are many many outlets to which are available to them. A molotov cocktail is not a hard device to make.
We're not losing any argument either. The people will speak up, they will decide. If they want more gun control, then that's what will go down. However, this arrogance that you're somehow better than someone just because you disagree with their beliefs is atrocious. There are pros and cons to each argument. I laugh at the thought of some saying we don't have any democracy whatsoever, when our laws differ from one city/state to the next, based upon what we the people want. I'm not sure how it can get any better than that...
Also, I love how one guy said to another member how he didn't know what it's like in the UK and so forth. Does one not hit a wall of realization when saying that? Because it'd seem to me that for someone to say, "Look bud, you don't live here, you don't know what you're talking about," only to turn around and lecture the US on how things should be when they themselves don't live here... I dunno. That just blows my mind.
The only argument anyone's "winning" is the argument of douchebaggery, where people insult each other indirectly. (e.g. gun owners are idiots) I failed to see how any of this behavior is helpful, which is why I teased him regarding his "insightful" opinion. Fact of the matter is: gun owners/carriers are not idiots. That's just a blatant lie, and only serves to make himself feel better regarding his opinion, which is why I called it nonsense.
