All countries have guns, it's how they're used that causes or solves the issue. For example, Japan and Australia have guns yet a low rate of mass shootings, because they're hard to get and then hard to keep.
And yes, you're right, when I wrote this argument I wasn't thinking about the fact if you bring a gun to a fist fight the opposition could get the gun off the person, kind of thing.
To be frank, guns are absolute fucking shit. Created solely for harming and killing other species and people and used in evil fucking ways. if I brought my emotions to this debate I would be screaming "ban guns" but if I were to thinking logically, as I try to. The problem isn's the actual gun, it's the laws and the way they are sold, attained etc.
thank you for your argument, I haven't thought about it that way.
I totally get the argument of what about if the killer is using knives, cars, and fire, however, these things have other uses than killing. They aren't solely used for killing whereas guns, they are.
I'm not suggesting all guns should be taken away but the truth is decades ago it took a LOT more to kill that many people, when nowadays its 5 minutes and a machine gun.
I would never suggest abolishing any and all kinds of firearms, just tone it down with the general public's access to such dangerous weaponry. You don't need a rifle to protect your home and family, a handgun would be more than enough (and they are significantly harder to kill that many people with, especially if people are running away)
No, because cars are made for transport and helping people get from place to place, while guns are made to kill, that's their solitary purpose.
You also need to go through a lot of testing, constant checks and have a valid license to drive a car. But go off lol
I think that quite frankly, its no one's business if a woman gets an abortion. Don't like abortion? don't get one but don't prevent women from getting them no matter the circumstances, her body her choice. And a lot of people need to back up and think about the woman before the baby.
Everyone says that they deserve the right to protect themselves, and they do, but that's all well and good until one of them goes crazy and decide to shoot up a mall, or a mosque or a bullied kid finds his dads gun and shoots up his school. Guns don't kill people, people kill people but fuck knows guns make it a hell of a lot easier. Guns should be controlled, or at the very very least have much more thorough background checks and tests to have a licence to own a gun, or the shootings won't stop at such a lethal rate that they currently are, if anything, they'll only get more lethal with the more people who own guns.
I do not mean this to be offensive, and I will always fight for people to have religious freedom, and for the right to worship any god they choose. I personally don't believe in God or Gods, and I truly believe if there is a God, they don't care for us. Religion is a power play, always has been, a way for people to gain power, with threats of hell if they don't follow the church. So no, I don't believe in a god, but I respect people who do and won't bag you for it and no one should.
Now, do not get me wrong I am not a fan of school, who the heck is. But it's vital right? I argue that instead of having shorter days that in fact, we start school later, around 10 am so our brains have time to wake up, we can sleep in a little and feel more refreshed going into school, but have them run later into the night.
