I believe that every law-abiding citizen should have the right to own a gun. If you have an opposing opinion, feel free to have a conversation with me and try to change my mind.

I agree with you to a point. Normal citizens should not be allowed to have:

-Most types of assault rifles

-Rocket launchers

-Anything that shoots a .50 caliber bullet

did you know that most shootings occur using handguns.

I am pro-gun, but the reason i bring up that statistic is because there is a stereotype for guns now. AR stands for Armalite, not assault rifle. More shootings occur using hanguns.

Also there have been shootings stopped by good guys with guns. i would like to protect myself with a weapon if i am ever in danger. 

If you notice, cities and countries with stricter gun laws have higher crime rates. When you think of chicago you think; Big city, Lake Michigan, and crime. Crime being one of the first things people think of. Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the US.

Unlike what anti-gun corporations try to trick you into thinking, the US is not the worst for mass shootings in the past couple of years. Venezuela and El Salvador long surpass us. we are ranked around the low thirties.

Ya I was bit more uneducated when I commented that. Personally I think that if a right has subsequent laws that prohibit certain aspects of it then it’s not a right.

as for .50 BMG why can’t a civilian own one?

Nope. Why ? Well because they don’t need them, all they do is cause problems, if we stop selling guns less people will get their hands on them and the less people use them .
I think only the military should have them, that way they have more guns to protect us with

TheAbnormalVermin, assuming we do not need them is not an acceptable excuse. You do not know if we will ever need them. A day may come that our government becomes too powerful and attempts to oppress the citizens. The second amendment was made for that exact reason. Also, it’s so important that it was the second variable that our founders considered. We should be allowed to have a way to protect ourselves if/when our government becomes tyrannical. Removing guns from society will not ever stop violence or killing. The criminals will always have ways to obtain powerful weapons. Removing guns will only leave the innocent defenseless while not affecting the criminals at all. They will still be able to obtain guns illegally. The problem is not guns, it’s the people. We need to set guidelines for raising children so that no parent is able to raise a child so incorrectly that the child grows up to be demented in the first place. The problem is parenting, not guns.

The day the goverment fucks with us is the day we lose our guns

on February 16, 2018

That’s the entire purpose of the second amendment. To allow us a way to fight the government if it becomes tyrannical.

coming from australia i think anyone who relies on a gun to solve their problems is a pussy

on March 5, 2018

Explain to me how someone who relies on a gun to defend them selves from another gun is a pussy. 

on March 5, 2018

I’m with Pesky on this one. If you are being attacked by someone with a gun, trying to physically fight them with no training is foolish. Using a gun is the more logical choice.

i said ‘solve their problems’ 

that applies to criminals with guns and citizens with guns. bottom line is no one needs them and my country is proof

If your problem is someone shooting at you, then a gun is the best choice to solve that problem.

When people ask me why someone would need the AR15 platform for hunting, I tell them about the feral hog problem in Texas.  I’ve seen 20 200-300 pound hogs ripping up my friends farm.  They are invasive, damaging to ecosystems, and make good meat to donate to those that need it.  A .300 blackout or a Lapua .338 are great hog hunting rifles.

but maybe we should have to register our high capacity mags.  Not not have them, but have them at least at the level it took to buy the rifle.

wont fix everything.  Just throwing out ideas past the 1st couple of talking points.

also, the reason why I decided to post.  I don’t agree with calling anyone a pussy, but I don’t need a weapon to feel safe;

A story about a Samurai and his “No sword school”

Bokuden was challenged by a mannerless ruffian. When asked about his style, Bokuden replied that he studied the “Style of No Sword”. The ruffian laughed and insultingly challenged Bokuden to fight him without a sword. Bokuden then agreed to fight the man without his sword but suggested they row out to a nearby island on Lake Biwa to avoid disturbing others. The ruffian agreed, but when he jumped from the boat to the shore of the island, drawing his blade, Bokuden pushed the boat back out, leaving the ruffian stranded on the island. Bokuden explained: “This is my no-sword school”.

Have a good day

Guns are lazy and easy. They were invented inorder to harm people in an easier, less risky manner. Often, people site gun violence as a reason why guns are necessary. I’m sure you can see the problem with that. Other times people claim they need to protect their home. A modern security system would definitely suffice. Guns slingers are honestly just perverts that fetishize dominating another being in the most permanent way

A security system would not stop the government. If the government became tyrannical, you would not be able to fight back without weapons equal to theirs. This is the entire purpose of America’s second amendment. At the rate things are changing, it may become necessary.
