PEOPLE guns dont kill people people use guns to kill people people use poison to kill people use knives to kill people see wher im going with this hhhmmmmm
guns first .........then people......
ahhh?!.......yur one of those ;-)........times have changed...waaay too many F'ed up people out there.....i don't say git rid of em......just stronger regulations so the wack jobs can't have easy access to em
Indeed. If you replaced gun with laser weapons....same problem. If you "control" (for lack of a better word) the people, the problem can be solved. It stands to reason to conclude that people kill, guns don't. Guns are tools operated by people. Consider the same line of reasoning in this example: A car accident by a drunk/drugged driver, blame the car, the drug, the drink or the driver? Probably the driver, yet still you have to look for the big picture, perhaps he had a reaction or condition.
You can only blame those that exert some method of control. Not inanimate objects. If we could do that. We would always blame death pain and suffering itself.
anytime you try to control something or someone it causes more problems then before you started. every country that went threw gun control has only created more crime and/or the government decided to kill lots and lots of unarmed civilians
Absolute nonsense. I live in a country that introduced strict gun control laws and crime has decrease. Our murder rate is close to 5 times less than the murder rate in the US. And our government hasn't been killing lots of us! LOL
what imaginary land you live in?
cant compare murder rates to other countries, every country is different for many different reasons
so only thing gun control will do in the USA is make good civilians turn there guns in and criminals will keep theirs to use on unarmed civillians.....
what country are you from?
You Americans are so deluded and so misinformed. 3.7 people out of the 4.8 per 100,000 are murdered by firearms in the US. You have cities in the US that have more murders each year than that experienced in my whole country. What a great country you live in! LOL
tell me what country you live in it must not be that great if you dont even proclaim it. I do not beleive my country is great, it is severly flawed mainly because of all the corporate laws that were passed to suppress the people and allow the corporations to control it all
you do realize that the USA is filled with people from every country in the world, there is no such thing as a natural american unless you see the Native americans as the only ones that actually decendents from this land all the rest came from over seas lol
I like Austriala always wanted to go there!
Maybe a bit of both, although it won't happen I don't think. It's all a little too late as this point.
we have the same tossers in England and we haven't got guns, the problem is society
England has nowhere near the same rate of homicides as that found in the US. Murder rate in the UK is 1.2 per 100,000 people. Murder tate in the US is 4.8 per 100,000 people. 4 times likely to be murdered in the US. You think that has nothing to do with the people in the US having access to weapons like guns?
percentages are a good way to hide the truth, if i lived on an island alone and shot myself it would be 100% gun fatality, the reason i say its society is because we kill with axes and knives because we have no guns.people will still kill if you take there guns away, they will just have to get creative and brave enough to go face to face, unlike a coward who dose it from a distance.
Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people, including 19 children, and wounded over 800 with a rental truck, diesel fuel and some fertilizer. I didn't see a big 'ban rental trucks, diesel fuel and fertlizer' movement. Sick, twisted people bent on killing will do so, would it have been better if this scumbag tossed a couple of molotov cocktails or a bomb into the room and killed the children? We need to focus on catching these losers before they act, no matter the method.
I am not sure which is worse people that make the gun or the ones who have them.<br />
There have been some who have gotten over to get a gun,that shouldn't have jusi look back at Camp Hood.
Use two hands!
people control because the guns can not control themselves and finally who is better off if we control ourselves ultimately
Eliminating really bad people is the best idea, there are far too many people anyway and we shouldn't waste time trying to rehabilitate the worst ones
Well you cant control people, they wont accept that.<br />
And people wont be happy about having their guns taken away.<br />
Cant please everybody.
Both for sure.
