A very thought out opinion on gun control.
Hello everyone,

The other day, a friend of mine from New York stumbled upon a pro-gun article titled "An opinion on gun control."

Being from a Blue State, he naturally questioned why people (AKA guntards) defend guns as much as they do. We have had discussions before about guns, gun control, and possible legislation being pushed. I imagine this is what led him to do some searching for an understanding of the pro-gun community.

Note that this article is rather long; but it is very, very thought out. After finding and reading this article my friend came to me and stated that he understood why guns are defended, and admitted he believes to have switched opinions on guns and gun control.

Please read and share this, I feel this is very important.
Let me know what you think!

Update: Added snips below.
---------------
"There were four mass killing attempts this week. Only one made the news because it helped the agreed upon media narrative.

1.Oregon. NOT a gun free zone. Shooter confronted by permit holder. Shooter commits suicide. Only a few casualties.
2.Texas. NOT a gun free zone. Shooter killed immediately by off duty cop. Only a few casualties.
3.Connecticut. GUN FREE ZONE. Shooters kills until the police arrive. Suicide. 26 dead.
4.China. GUN FREE COUNTRY. A guy with a KNIFE stabs 22 children."
---------------
"That’s the problem. The term assault rifle gets bandied around a lot. Politically, the term is a loaded nonsense one that was created back during the Clinton years. It was one of those tricks where you name legislation something catchy, like PATRIOT Act. (another law rammed through while emotions were high and nobody was thinking, go figure).

To gun experts, an assault rifle is a very specific type of weapon which originated (for the most part) in the 1940s. It is a magazine fed, select fire (meaning capable of full auto), intermediate cartridge (as in, actually not that powerful, but I’ll come back to that later) infantry weapon."

---------------

"It doesn’t really make sense to ban guns, because in reality what that means is that you are actually banning effective self-defense. Despite the constant hammering by a news media with an agenda, guns are used in America far more to stop crime than to cause crime.

I’ve seen several different sets of numbers about how many times guns are used in self-defense every year. The problem with keeping track of this stat is that the vast majority of the time when a gun is produced in a legal self-defense situation no shots are fired. The mere presence of the gun is enough to cause the criminal to stop."

EDIT:
Again, PLEASE SHARE THIS with everyone you can.

Thanks for the bump guys, this stuff is important.

As for your replies, this only demonstrates the ignorance I mentioned in the original post.

Continue restricting your knowledge about the topic at hand, it will get you nowhere.

Learning about both sides of a debate will only help progress your own opinion.

Exactly, it's a rather lengthy article.

The comment section is even longer, it has really shed some light on main points to both sides of the debate.

Very informative, no matter which stance you choose.

Awesome, thank you so much.

The only real draw back is it's length. But that's what makes it so informative.

Of course, because of it's length, some will be too lazy to even attempt to read it. However, as mentioned before, I believe that is their loss.

Re: A very thought out opinion on gun control.
A very thought out opinion is still just an opinion. Your talking humanity here. Do you really think if humans were intelligent (generally speaking) that all this shit would be going on? Humans, though having some organizational and memorizational abilites, are, for the most part, not very intelligent at all. That isn't to say that most humans can't be intelligent, it has a lot to do with what we learn.

You'll pull your penis out, or call the biggest penis having person you know.
