By south, I was talking SE. I think most states now have concealed carry. NC has had it for sometime now. Alot of states are trying to get reciprocity for carry. I can carry in any state now with proper id.

Sadly murder will always exist, guns or no guns. You don't see a lot of people getting lanced, or shot with an arrow, but people will always find a way to get rid of someone they don't like enough if they have the mental instability to get the job done.

As for hunting, as long as you are eating your kill I see nothing wrong with it. Trophy hunters on the other hand, fuck 'em.

In my imagination.
They won't be either until they start doing something with the criminals that commit these acts. There is no penalties in place to deter it. Start the hanging at the square at high noon again and you will see a decrease.

:clapping:

Hell Yes! Either you act right or you die. You kill someone, you die! You hurt a child, you die. You sexually abuse anyone, you die.

We should also start hanging politicians. You take advantage of your political office for personal gains, you die!

I don't think most murders are premeditated like that. My guess is that most murders happen in a burst of uncontrolled anger.

Say you come home to find a dude in bed with your wife. Your initial anger would justify the use of your gun to shoot him in the head. But if you had no gun, could the average guy really beat someone to death? After a two minute beating, your senses might come to you, and you might think of the consequences. But once you pull that split second trigger, it's too late.

I just think guns makes it too easy to kill.

I agree 100%

Trophy hunting is the worst form of animal cruelty.

Some where between right and wrong
I'm completely against use of guns, and I'm glad here in the UK all handguns are banned.
You keep hearing about all these kids killed in schools, and the only way to stop it in my opinion is to take away the guns from the public.

If you take away guns form the private citizen, does it take away guns from criminals? No, criminal are just that, criminals, they do not abide by the law. If a kid wants to blow away his class mates, there are other ways of doing that and if they want a pistol bad enough, do you think a criminal is going to have enough morals to not sell one to a teenager? I mean c'mon what is next, do we ban fertilizer and keep the citizens from buying that so they can for example, fertilize their gardens and yards, b/c some teenager can learn how to make a bomb using the stuff on the internet? Which brings up another point, we might as well ban the internet too.

I think hand guns should be restricked to hot women and children only. I'm okay with rifles for hunters who are going to feed their families with the meat, and are respectful, not wasteful- but not for crazy people like me. :shake: Sadly, I can't be trusted. :(

This is unfortunate, but should everyone else be punished because a few in the gene pool are fucktards?

This is how life works now: the lowest common denominator. Put another way: stupid mother fuckers ruin if for everyone else.

My Mind
In the states where gun posession in public is LEGAL, there is an almost non existant crime rate. After all, if your a theif, your going to think twice about robbing some innocent citizen if they are carrying the same weapon as you. Besides, taking our guns away gives more power to the government, the same exact thing that liberal SAY they are against... go figure, their the ones that want to take the guns away from all of the LAW abiding, tax paying citizens. Please, someone exaplain to me how that works?

Yeah I figured you might've been messing around I was :hmmm: .

I'm still just fucking around. About the whole black thing.

In my opinion it's a lose lose situation. If you take away guns the murder rate might drop(who's to say that people won't start stabbing each other) but the fact of the matter is criminals won't be scared to rob someone, or someones house, for the simple fact that they know that they won't be "packin".

Unfortunately we will never be able to keep firearms out of the hands of people who try to misuse them. It's like the illegal immigrant problem; we already let them in and it's impossible to get rid of them. No matter how hard we try, they will always be here.

What I would like to know is if the times were similar to now back when the constitution was written, would the second amendment allow us to carry firearms? Would our forefathers put that statement in the second amendment knowing that shit has really hit the fan now a days. I know that they were completely different times, I mean completely different, but seriously. It kinda makes you think.

I think they would have still made that ammendment. This country was actually dedicated to freedom when the bill of rights was written. Now, there are many laws that blatantly mock 'freedom', many of which would fall under the idea of 'protecting' people. Gun control, seat belt laws, helmet laws... just to name a few.
In all honesty, I think that if the founding fathers would have had any idea how much their words, deeds, and intentions would be twisted, they probably would have just said screw it and kept on bowing to England.

I read this thread and I was pleasantly surprised by how many people got the answer right.

Ah, I'd forgotten about this thread.

I have a follow up question for those that voted to ban guns: Do you trust the government (You know, the one with Bush in it) 100%?

Yes or no?

I think that guns should be allowed to be owned by citizens. It's a little thing called freedom. However, if people choose to use their freedom in a morally and ethically wrong way, then they should be taken away. That is where it gets tricky. :thinking:

How is that tricky? It's called committing a crime. The individual gets locked away and loses the right to own a gun.

You punish the individual, not the people.

If you're Canadian, I'm going to assume you'd like to have guns...well...because you have a large population of French people living in your country who you'd undoubtedly like to see dead.

When it comes down to it, the answer is no, IMO. Someone else will always have a gun, whether it be in the US or another country.

Plus, for the poe-poe, guns allow a fat, out-of-shape, piece of shit take out someone in much better shape with a knife easily. If I had kids and some lunatic held them up with a knife, I like the comfort in knowing that pretty much anyone could take them out with a gun.

As for assault rifles or fully-automatic weapons, if no other person in the world had them, I don't see the need for them. But, at the end of the day, someone will have them, legally or illegally, so it is something I just don't really give a shit about.

Not seeing a need for something isn't the same as not allowing it. I don't see the need for abortion but don't see the need for eliminating the ability to get one.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah.............This discussion has been done so damn many times I can't give it any serious thought anymore. I know where I stand on the matter and am not changing my position any time soon. Those on the other side of the fence aren't going to change their opinions on the matter either. So if people want to debate it fine, let them have at it. I'm just gonna sit here and make jokes.:D

I think Jesus Christ is against abortion, I wouldn't really bother bringing up that subject.

Not really slipping in the observation department, just slipping in the "give a shit" department. Some of these things have been argued to death and nobody ever changes their original position. So why waste time and energy? I'm just gonna sit back and make fun of people. Speaking of that, you're ugly.:p
