Leftists and Islam have Thing A in common but not Thing B. They have the "America must be changed/destroyed"thing in common. Where they go from there they lose each other. A Communist "utopia" or the Caliphate.
If they could get rid of us, they'd wind up in a war with each other for final control.
There is nothing revolutionary about 30,000 unnecessary
Most are suicides, not homicides. The rest are gangs who obviously won't be disarming.
completely preventable deaths each year, dumbass. It's just plain unadulterated buffoonery. The American gun industry is literally funded by blood money.
NRA members aren't guilty of committing homicides. People in liberal cities are.
You do not stand against murder.
Sure I do. Probably why I'm not fond of Jihadis and Communists.
You stand against Islam because you are a religious
I'm not religious.
bigot and a dangerously insane far right lunatic.
I'm an Independent Centrist. I voted for Bill Clinton.
Islam doesn't have anything to do with the far right you astonishingly stupid moron. Millions of Muslims fought Hitler during WW2. You are shockingly dumb buddy. Shocking.
You've made no point here. People don't fight wars based on political wings. They fight wars because their governing bodies tell them to.
By your logic, the invasion of Poland by the Nazis and the Russians is impossible, due to a common wing by deduction with one of them.
Christian militias in Central African Republic 'burnt witches at stake', says UN report
You keep repeating a years old incident. I can give you fringe Atheist groups killing people. More importantly, unlike Atheism and Christianity, I can give you a list a mile long on Islam from recently.
it is a cross of Jesus drawn in fresh blood from an animal sacrifice. Although slaughter for sacrifice contradicts a basic belief of Christianity, it is practiced by local Catholics, Greek Orthodox and other Christians at the ruined Byzantine church of Saint George in the village of Taybeh, 20 miles from Jerusalem.
So you've shown us a fringe example similar to the fringe groups of Atheists who practice blood rituals. All Muslims worldwide participate in Haj. That'd be 1.5 billion people.
Shut your face you hypocrite. You label Islam a "religious death cult"
They do take part in blood rituals and live animal sacrifices at Haj.
while you simultaneously walk around with a permanent erection for Christianity, a religion which has killed TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
1)Islamic jihadists say "alahu akbar" before they kill, meaning by mouth, they are telling us the kill was in the name of their religion.
Show us a long list similar to the jihadist list of people openly killing "in the name of Christianity" by mouth.
Then provide us the list between Christians and Muslims worldwide and who killed more in the last decade or in any given year in the last decade.
2)You're trapped in your own logic. Regardless of your response to the above, if we are far right for religious fundamentalism, you are still allied with a far right fundamentalist group that you defend despite their being far right, religious fundamentalists.
but that isn't an argument against deterrence, so long as deterrence does indeed work
Prohibition has a nasty history of making things worse. In this case, if you implemented this idea in America, 30,000 gangs would definitely not disarm, militia groups would not disarm, and you'd probably just wind up with hundreds of millions of undocumented secret guns.
It would take Waco times 100,000 to credibly enforce any such rule in America, and in reality, I believe a strong majority of cops wouldn't enforce it due to their own ideology on the 2nd Amendment being a right that is "self evident" and an "inalienable right endowed by our creator".
Also, if you look at it from reality, any theoretical country one thinks gun control would theoretically work, doesn't have a document that most of the country respects saying our gun rights cannot be taken away even by the government. Too many Americans ideologically believe that if the government tries to take your guns, you take out that government with those same guns.
Mexico has very strict gun laws but some of the worst gun violence in the world. Why? When you let hundreds of millions of people arm themselves, it's way too late to attempt a gun grab. Also, the government isn't powerful enough to attempt such a grab, and the people, gangs, and cartels know it.
In the case of America, right wingers know that a government who is physically unable to control its border is physically unable to grab their guns.
