When your kid gets shot just because some unstable person had his "right to bear arms" maybe your view will change...

You don't need guns to protect yourself, firearms possession should be limited to law enforcement only.


Oh look, you can disgustingly use children to promote your political views. Just like the president just did. Do you use children like that often?

Oh okay cops only get guns...you mean like the BART cop Johannes Mehserle who shot a handcuffed man laying on his belly, in the back.

These cops shot an elk and covered it up. Like criminals do.

Guns. I don't know how America let itself get the way it did but I'm sure as Hell glad I don't live there.
Kid was sitting in her house watching Spongebob and got hit by a stray bullet. She wouldn't have been hit by a stray knife.
If you really want them, leave them in the hands of the Police. Just because people would get them anyway is no excuse to make it easy. We don't let them have child porn at the newsagents or meth at the chemist. Because if we did that'd be ****ing terrifying.


so compare the number of poor little children hit by stray bullets to ones killed by drunk drivers, and i bet you support legal status of alcohol despite it causing more problems than law abiding gun owners.


Stop using the comparison excuse and shifting the blame and ignoring the problem


The "problem" is that adam lanza was a maniacal suicidal depressive loner on anti depressant drugs that used STOLEN guns from his mother to kill kids for no reason.
Ban drugs, oh wait....they are banned but people still get those right? Not like hundreds are dying across the border because of them or anything....

Alcohol wasn't made solely to get people drunk

Alcoholic beverages were... or are you going to tell me that the case of Ice House sitting at my mom's place was originally made to sterilize surgical equipment?


You have fetal alcohol syndrome

If the point is "saving the children" than shouldn't we look at the biggest "problem" first?

The problem is that his mom gave him clear access to those guns at all times in the house. The problem was that she was an irresponsible parent. The problem was that she (and the negligent father who did't speak to them for over 2 years) created a recipe for disaster allowing the two to mix within that household.
And once again stop comparing and address the problems at hand instead of redirecting.

I thought they were made just to be had and enjoyed and getting drunk was just a by product.
I also don't care what kind of problems with alcohol your mother has, tell it to a professional, not me.

Getting drunk is where the fun comes from with alcoholic beverages. That little buzz you get after downing a few drinks? Yeah, that's the beginning stage of getting drunk and is more than enough to cause violent mood swings or hazardous driving. The whole point of drinking alcoholic beverages is to feel the "joy" of being intoxicated. How many people do you hear talking about how they're going to go to the bar to drink to the amount before they feel buzzed then stop? Now compare that with how many people talk about going to the bar to either get buzzed or plastered to enjoy the night... Yeah...

I never said they were her's. They belong to her boyfriend who's living in her house... As he isn't paying any bills, it's not his home, it's her's.

You post all those stories about bent cops Lefty128k, but correct me if I'm wrong here, but didn't all those things happen in the US where you're free to own guns?!!!!

So how the hell is that relevant if your guns didn't do jack ****?

Stop pulling crap out your butt. No one is claiming that crime would mysteriously vanish with a gun ban. But it would sure as hell be a start at lowering gun related homicides.

So your point is ?

There WILL be abuse, some people with power abuse it that's human nature. But you can limit the damage.

And I don't use children I state facts, how many school shootings do you need until you see it ???

Now try to imagine if one of the victims were your kid how would YOU feel about guns for everyone ?
What's disgusting is that people cling to a right they don't need while kids get shot !
