Re: They're screaming for more gun control but we better ban knives, cars, ladders, & beds too!
We are hearing already after this horrendous shooting that we need "tough gun laws." But is that really the solution? There are a LOT of things that kill more people in the U.S. than guns. Take a look:

Homicides due to guns is 3.7 people per 100,000 people in U.S. (That's about 11,000 people.)

China school knife attack wounds 23:

A man wielding a knife attacked students Friday at a school in central China, leaving 22 children and one adult injured, according to state-run media reports.

The attack occurred at the gate of an elementary school in the village of Chengping, in Henan Province. Police arrested the attacker, who they identified as local resident Min Yingjun, 36.

Children as young as six were among those hospitalized after the attack, suffering injuries including slashes to the ears and head.

Cars in U.S. kill 40,000 people per year (guns 11,000)

Imagine a plane full of people crashing, killing everyone on board, every single day. That’s how many people die on America’s roads daily, says the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
“Motor vehicle crashes in the United States result in more than 40,000 deaths per year,” says the Institute in the journal Injury Prevention. “That is, on each of the 6,209 consecutive days included in this study, an equivalent of a plane load or more of people died on the roads.”

Don't forget Spoons and Doctors. Obese related diseases account for a lot of death so ban spoons. Doctor errors including prescription accounts for the 4th leading cause of death. Hell aspirin kills around 30,000 a years due to bleeding from stomache ulcers.

Falling off the bed can kill you?

Man you gotta love natural selection, if you cant survive a 1 to 4 feet fall, then you probably wont survive civilization anyway.

Thanks mother nature.

Of course, we should ban everything we don't like. It works all the time....

Let's ban drugs.. then no one will get addicted... Oh wait..

Ok, let's ban prostitution.... No... wait...

Let's ban murder... that has to work... hmm...

Rather than ban guns, psychopaths/sociopaths should be institutionalized. If a nut wants to kill people, they're going to, regardless whether their weapon of choice is a gun, a knife, arson, etc..

I lived with a psych nurse for a couple of years. He worked at a state mental institution in MA. He came home one night, really upset that they had released a woman that day that he said was literally bat shit crazy. It was the week before Christmas. The day she was released back into the community, she went home to her apartment, set it on fire killing 2 people.

We let these people out. It's high time to put them back.

None of those things makes killing as easy as a gun does. Note that in the China attack, no one died.

You can't attack every nation that steps out of line and not be a little fearful as a people!

That being said...

One could argue that throughout history many slaves experienced a better quality of life as a slave than they might have had they not been a slave.

You certainly wouldn't say we should bring back slavery would You??

My point is that mankind does not even really "need" to be free to live a long, healthy, fulfilling life.

But would you really want it any other way?!


You don't really 'need' an appendix or 2 kidneys to live... Should there be a law that says if yo have 2 you must give one up to one who needs it??

or more appropriately, you do not need meat, desserts, tea, coffee, alcohol, sugary beverages... so on and so forth...

But does that mean that every human should just give up what he or she doesn't absolutely "need"??

If so I vote for this one to be 1st ...

CLOTHES are not "needed"... give 'em up and let's all get naked!

Yes all the things mentioned can kill people... but nothing listed is as portable or efficient as a gun.

I don't even want to ban guns, I think people should be able to defend themselves... but do we really need auto-shotguns, or high-capacity magazines, uzi's or other rapid-fire death dispensers?

Whatever.

Re: They're screaming for more gun control but we better ban knives, cars, ladders, & beds too!
You MUST have stricter gun control. You won't have an outright banning, no country has that, but it is completely WRONG to be able to walk into a store and buy a gun. You can only get guns here legally through authorised sources and from a narrow range. Usually hunting rifles and the like. Although we have a problem with illegal gun crime amongst the crime gangs in Dublin, we have never had any incidents like US ones and similar in UK. Dunblane brought far stricter laws into effect and there have been very few multiple shooting incidents since then. Those of you who feel their rights are being violated, better get real. I see the pictures of those little kids and wonder why they had to die so you can protect your second amendment. This gun love is unique to the US and makes me sick.
