Where lack of gun control has gotten us

But hey, we can't conclude anything from this trend, right? This is a problem that should just be ignored because it's never the right time to discuss it.

Perhaps, but that isnt the correct search. The chart does not measure the scale of the individual shootings. It measures the NUMBER OF MASS SHOOTINGS. I'm sure you are smart enough to know the difference.


Yes, the number of all shootings and the number of victims of such shootings is far greater which more greatly supports my point that gun control is necessary.

and no I dont have time to go through all of it and figure out why. Neither does anyone else here with a life.


An uninformed opinion deserves no respect. If you aren't willing to spend whatever time it takes for your opinions to be well-informed, then you should not express those opinions to others. It's not worth our time to hear your unfounded objections and opinions on subjects that your are ignorant of.

You are suggesting that someone needs to find, read, and organize every article on a shooting to have an informed opinion? Go ahead, show us how informed you are on the chart you posted. I've downloaded their silly database, and even read through it. Have you? The point you are missing is that the only way to test their conclusions in the graph would be to recreate the entire process.

Your logical thinking is yet again, terrible.

Dan:

I can only answer some of the questions right now, but you may be surprised that I agree with you on most of the points.

Personally, I wouldn't trust ONLY the police having guns. The word "gun" existed in the late 18th century, but I expect Arms or Armaments are words carefully chosen so as to not limit the definition. That’s why I mentioned the cannon. Unfortunately, many poor people don't even trust the police to show up on time when they need them.

I completely agree with your point on private security if citizens cannot bear arms. Kimmel and Soros and “Cold Dead Hand" Jim Carrey are monumentally hypocritical bastards every time they leave home with their "private, legal, licensed protection". If the citizens can't have guns, than neither can they or the guards at the Late Show. They should be just as afraid that their hired Guido's heat will be confiscated as Bobby Joe Redneck ever was.

Nuclear weapon production, testing, storage, and disposal endangers the lives and personal liberties of many, many people that would never be targeted by them. Notice that I never even mentioned the nuclear weapons actually being used as such. The nuke argument only ever comes up as a trump card attempt. Ironically, no pun intended this time.

A false dichotomy. One doesn't have to choose between being completely ignorant or reading everything ever written in history. You are just trying to cover up that your opinions are based on complete and willful ignorance.

There is nothing wrong with not respecting opinions based on ignorance and misinformation. I know that conservatives find this culturally offense, but ignorance is not respectable.

Piggy logs out immediately after posting bullshit and then posts more bullshit anonymously to look like someone else. He doesn't even wait 60 seconds between the posts. Anyone want to take a bet that I'm wrong, that the second post doesn't come from the same IP address as the first?

This is why
1. Anonymous posts should not be allowed.
2. Registering new users should require SMS verification making alts at least somewhat difficult and limited.

I don't wonder at all. You have created dozens of alts. The rest of us have lives and don't have the time to waste creating an army of PatNet alts to rig like votes on a site with a very small user base. You really have nothing better to do.

Are you willing to agree to this or are you a complete fucking pussy and liar? We already know the answer. You won't agree to it or you will renege once Patrick states his position. I know this for the exact same reason you shitted your pants and hide instead of meeting me at any neutral location. You are a coward, a liar, an imbecile, and a loser.

I’m not a gun guy, but I am an insatiable advocate of individual rights and personal liberty.


Why would the freedom to possess machines that fling mass projectiles be any more an individual right or personal liberty than the freedom to possess machines that split Uranium atoms or machines that invade human cells and alter their DNA in lethal ways? We certainly do not allow the latter two, so why the former?


Don't be daft.

Devices that hurl projectiles have recreational and self defense purposes when possessed by an individual. They have been safely used for such purposes by the overwhelming majority of civilian owners since their invention. A responsible user can safely deploy these weapons without threatening the safety of others.

The uranium splitting machines are not practical for recreational or self defense use by individuals. They cannot safely be used for recreational or self defense purposes on the continental United States without threatening the safety of others.

Your reasoning is flawed by years of corrupt programming and self induced Taylor Swifting.

Talk about flawed reasoning.. Does the 2nd Amendment mention anything about hurling projectiles? Or recreational/defense purposes?

I'll answer that--NO.

Either you're for the 2nd Amendment or not. Which is it?

Pot has recreational purposes. That does not make it a right.

As for self-defense, guns are worthless against the government, and fighting the government was the SOLE purpose of the Second Amendment. You need nukes to fight a nuclear power. So your entire analysis is wrong.

Furthermore, every person is safer in a society that has few or no guns than in a society that is well-armed. This has been proved by the Australian example and by western Europe.

Finally, you still haven't addressed all the other arms that individuals are not allowed to possess like land mines, grenades, flame throwers, etc., all of which can be used for home defense.

Do I think it means the people have the right to bear nuclear arms? I think it says:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

So it depends on your definition of arms. As you referred to them as "nuclear arms", it appears you think they qualify as arms. So, my question is how you can you NOT believe that people have the right to bear them?

Exactly, the definition of arms.

When the 2nd was written, the Militia had the same "arms" as the government. Does the Militia have access to the same "arms" the government has now?

The most deadly weapon is a strong set of beliefs backed by a will to pay the ultimate price for them.

There were many unfair advantages against the newly formed Americans the first time, and we won. We had many advantages in Vietnam, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and frankly the US has been on the losing side of those engagements, to a good degree. Architecture of aggression will only go as far as your aggression and will can compel you to go.

You are saying that the whole point of the second amendment was that people have the right to fight the government? You are crazy and dangerous. You should be on some kind of watch list. You are advocating treason.


Furthermore, every person is safer in a society that has few or no guns than in a society that is well-armed. This has been proved by the Australian example and by western Europe.


No, these "examples" are irrelevant to your argument that the purpose of the second amendment was to give citizens the weapons to wage war on the government. You said so yourself. And now you want to argue a different point. You don't even have a coherent discussion.


Finally, you still haven't addressed all the other arms that individuals are not allowed to possess like land mines, grenades, flame throwers, etc., all of which can be used for home defense.


Some of the above could possibly be used safely to defend oneself without endangering the innocent but land mines are not on that list.

I'm not unwilling to answer it--I just don't want this to turn into a discussion about me. I don't really care if you're for or against the 2nd Amendment, I only want to point out hypocrisy in most peoples' views.

Assuming that most people don't think individual citizens should have the right to nuclear arms or drones carrying bunker busting bombs, then they've already decided that the 2nd Amendment doesn't guarantee people the right to ALL arms. It's just a questions of which ones are regulated. And once we realize that, it's a much easier discussion to have.
