Are anti-gunners complicit in the murders of innocent people for denying the right to self defense?
POLL: Are anti-gunners complicit in the murders of innocent people for denying the right to self defense?
 Yes - Unintentionally because they don't know the facts.
 Yes - They like it when innocent people die (like Bill Maher)
 No - The guns are the problem (much like a fork is to blame for obesity).
 No - OP is a crazyass guntard.
 I am from a disarmed nation and want America disarmed just because...
 I just ate pork-n-beans.

I want to know what GLP thinks.

Anti-gunners want to disarm the public (already have in some locations). Are they complicit in the murder of innocent people because they do not know that more guns equals less crime. Or, do they just like it when innocent people die?

I want a GLP consensus on this and this seems to be the only way to do it...

Please discuss.

Re: Are anti-gunners complicit in the murders of innocent people for denying the right to self defense?
Allow me to be serious for a minute, OP, since your thread title is a tad inflammatory, I think.

You know...the bit about 'anti gunners being complicit in the murder of innocents' part..

Consider two things:


1. Don't you think that criminals are also overjoyed at the ease with which firearms can be accessed in the US?

2. Population of England = 6o million. Population of US = 300 million. US has five times the population of the UK.

So...averaging things out, you would probably expect that the level of gun related crimes would be something like 5 times higher in the US than it is here in England. But it is more like 50 times higher.

Why is that, do you think?

I propose that it is either because America is awash with guns.

Or...there is maybe something about the American psyche which is not true for other nations, and which fosters this kind of thing.

I lean more towards the fact that guns are so readily available..even to criminals.

Can you not see that? Is there no correlation, in your view?


And on balance, would you not rather live in a relatively peaceful and less dangerous society such as ours? Where you don't fear having your brains blown out by a robber who accosts you at a cash machine?

I've only ever seen about 3 real guns in my life (I'm 48). And I've only ever fired one. A .22.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not totally against guns. But I think you Americans feel the need to arm yourselves with guns simply because guns are so common.

A balance needs to be struck. But I admit it would be difficult to see eye to eye since we are two very different societies.

Since the states have never been disarmed...they know not what they're asking for. I think modern Americans are dumbed down and suffer from apathetic complacency. They actually believe they can remove all of the weapons from society.

Little do they know that when the good people follow orders and turn in their weapons...the bad guys won't. Then there will be a wind fall of death knocking at your door.

Article Excerpt: The result of the ban has been costly. Thousands of weapons were confiscated at great financial cost to the public. Hundreds of thousands of police hours were devoted to the task. But in the six years since the 1997 handgun ban, crimes with the very weapons banned have more than doubled, and firearm crime has increased markedly. In 2002, for the fourth consecutive year, gun crime in England and Wales rose—by 35 percent for all firearms, and by a whopping 46 percent for the banned handguns. Nearly 10,000 firearms offences were committed.

It's hard for me to debate with a severely misinformed person. Sorry. It's just not fair. It's like taking a knife to a gun fight...pun intended.

You speak of gun crimes, but how does the murder rate per capita compare.

The point I try to make is that murderers will find a way to murder.

I saw that link when it first appeared. Incidentally, there are other sources which dispute those findings.

In any case..that deals with violent crime figures..not gun crime.


So...to put it in simple terms...there are, for example, many drug gangs in our inner city areas. Most of them are NOT armed with guns.

If they were armed with guns....do you think the murder rate in this country would increase or diminish?

Article Excerpt: The result of the ban has been costly. Thousands of weapons were confiscated at great financial cost to the public. Hundreds of thousands of police hours were devoted to the task. But in the six years since the 1997 handgun ban, crimes with the very weapons banned have more than doubled, and firearm crime has increased markedly. In 2002, for the fourth consecutive year, gun crime in England and Wales rose—by 35 percent for all firearms, and by a whopping 46 percent for the banned handguns. Nearly 10,000 firearms offences were committed.

It's hard for me to debate with a severely misinformed person. Sorry. It's just not fair. It's like taking a knife to a gun fight...pun intended.

I saw that link when it first appeared. Incidentally, there are other sources which dispute those findings.

In any case..that deals with violent crime figures..not gun crime.


So...to put it in simple terms...there are, for example, many drug gangs in our inner city areas. Most of them are NOT armed with guns.

If they were armed with guns....do you think the murder rate in this country would increase or diminish?
 Quoting: Shoot straight Johnny


It is a fact that if armed criminals believed that their potential victim was armed...they would not attack that victim. Criminals are pussy's that are hell bent on stealing, raping, dominating others. It's about power. They will use anything they can get a hold of. My firearm keeps them in check!!! Period. Simple equation.

How hard is that to understand? The FBI's crime statistics prove that over the passed 20 years violent crime has dropped substantially! Especially since Americans have been purchasing more and more guns. Why would the FBI lie? The citizens being armed is against their MO.

BTW - The excerpt of that article I pasted does indicate GUN CRIME. Do I really have to paste it again for you to actually read it?

Re: Are anti-gunners complicit in the murders of innocent people for denying the right to self defense?
Fuck, yeah!

Anti-gunners should, by law, have to post flashing neon signs on their houses, advertising that the property is a firearm-free zone!

I wonder why they don't do that voluntarily, since they all drive hybrids, and sniff their own farts?

Since the states have never been disarmed...they know not what they're asking for. I think modern Americans are dumbed down and suffer from apathetic complacency. They actually believe they can remove all of the weapons from society.

See! Now you're just being facetious. The fact that firearms can be made in garages and the fact that firearms are here to stay just does penetrate that thick skull of anti-gunners like yourself. Does not compute...eh Johnny?

You live on an island Johnny. There's no where for you to run. Your people have been assraped by your corrupt fucked up muzzie government for so long that the brand of apathy your nation has is incurable. Over here...we're still armed. Not to mention the fact most of us are the ancestors of individulas who became fed the fuck up with your kings bullshit. So...there is still a chance for us. You're fucked though and that's why you lash out.

And I'm not really an anti gun-runner. I just don't see guns as being the answer.

But you can continue to do so, if you want.
