Should Laws Regarding Gun Ownership Be Tightened Up?

Recommended Posts

thats just a shocking attitude tbh, we're not talking about people in warzones or on dangerous trips to try and better themselves we are on about kids, in supposedly one of the most civilised countries in the world, kids in their OWN houses and schools. in susposed peaceful times being gunned down, and all you can do is bah hoo sucks Oo

 

That's the trouble with some of the English. They see a country that shares a common language and then think it must be similar to Australia or New Zealand well it's not. Its a big mix of cultures, customs and ethnics and the Anglo-Saxon nature of self restraint, respect and obedience to authority isn't always in evidence.

 

Many Americans see government and authority as a bit of an enemy and to be somewhat suspicious of..

Obviously very few on here get it

 

Australians to a little lesser extent are the same. I saw a movie once with a story of Gallipoli and the Aussies who took part in that battle.

Two British officers were disgusted at what they saw as the lack of discipline among the Aussie O.Rs

 

"I really cannot understand these colonials" one said to the other "they are undisciplined, sloppily dressed and only salute the officers they like" :hihi: :hihi:

Anyone who maintains that gun control can't happen is a spineless scardey cat.

 

If they can abolish slavery they can abolish ownership of man toys.

They had to have a civil war before they abolished slavery. And slaves were generally in favour of slavery being ended. Guns don't care one way or the other.

So it's the fault of the blacks and those hot blooded latinos when white guys shoot up a cinema full of people or bomb a local govt office :loopy:

 

 

 

 

In fact that is so funny I might quote you as my new signature

What are you rattling on about? I thought all the smoke and soot was gone in Sheffield so what's fogging up your brain box ? :D I made no mention that whites never carried out shootings. My meaning was that while English people are generally submissive to authority Americans are in many cases not

Can someone in favour of banning guns in the US explain how they see it playing out in their minds? Something like government bans guns, everyone hands in their guns to be destroyed, no-one smuggling guns into the country afterwards to sell? So no shootings after the ban day, ever. Surely even the most naive person coudln't think that. So once you establish that it's just a matter of how much resistance, not if there would be any.

Hundreds of thousands of masked Gendarmerie wearing bullet proof black uniforms and helmets descend on neighbourhoods all over the country in unmarked black choppers and split up into teams. One carries a sledgehammer the rest are armed with military assault weapons. If doors are not opened immediately the sledge hammer is used, Houses are ransacked in search for weapons, large trucks are on hand to take them away.

 

Meanwhile in Washingto the one eyed President Kim Il Junk dressed as usual in a black tunic and trousers, clutching all white pet Persian cat and surrounded by fifty of his karate trained bodyguards tells the nation that "gun crime as we know it is finally over"

 

Leaders of the NRA are lined up and publically executed on Pennsylvania Avenue in time for the 5 o'clock news, their heads spiked and displayed outside a Walmart Store a block from CIA HQ.

Alternatively, just hand them in or get them licensed at the local police station. :rolleyes:

 

 

Your life isn't the latest edition of Die Hard. The NRA leader idea is interesting though.

No one has suggested that the US ban guns. The suggestion is that their sale and use be better regulated.

What changes to existing regulations would you recommend ?

Those turkeys, and deer and puma and bears they like to shoot sure must put up some mighty defence.

 

I'd want something with a bit more stopping power than an assault rifle if I was going up against a bear myself....

according to this

they're dangerous weapons.

 

It doesn't give a citation.

 

My bushcraft knife is a dangerous weapon but I can legally carry that in public without problems.
