I don’t know shit about gun control. I don’t trust any of the facts and figures because I’m pretty sure all of them are skewed in the direction that the people or companies behind them want them to be skewed. But I will say one thing.
If I see someone pull out a gun with the intent to shoot me or…
an “armed public”
“forcefully arm everyone”
You’re afraid of guns, ok, that’s perfectly fine. But i’m not and i’m trained to use them.
so shut the hell up and stop trying to take away MY rights because YOU dont like them.
getting REALLY sick of the mentality of gun control idiots. “I dont like it, therefore YOU shouldnt have it” or “The government should handle everything”
The government is NOT your nanny. and avalost I am NOT necessairly targeting you with all of this angry shit i’m posting, your post just kinda ignited it and for THAT I apologize.
The problem, sweetheart, is that we’re not arguing about a joint or the ability to jack off. Your ‘rights’ don’t supersede the commonwealth’s aspiration of safety.
I hear a shit ton of defense for guns and have to deal with them on a daily basis because the exports of the Midwest are cows, 2nd amendment nuts, and latent racism. All of them boil down to this:
1. The Founding Fathers entrusted us the ability to bear arms.
And Thomas Jefferson beat women and enslaved the children of his rapes. Who gives a shit.
2. Weapons provide defense against intruders.
This is bullshit, but let me explain why:
Kids are stupid:
Men are assholes:
People shouldn’t be making life-or-death decisions off limited info.
3. Guns are fun.
Buy a goddamn Gameboy.
4. What if the government tries to oppress us?
Then you resist and wake up in a torture camp on an unmarked island because this is America and we haven’t fought a war since the 1940’s.
