it’s easy when there isn’t security.

automatic weapons are already illegal under the NFA act. Maybe you should learn about what laws are already in the books before you advocate for a bunch of new ones.
that’s funny, because I needed one to protect my wife from a drunk thug a few months ago.
nope, they are there because as an american citizen and an NRA member, I PAY THEM TO BE THERE. You do realize that hating the NRA is fuitless and the only reason they exist is because SO MANY citizens pay a lot of money for their protection against liberal lawmakers. They aren’t some faceless machine. They ARE the people, and they are powerful because the PEOPLE support them.
I’m going to have to call b.s. and demand a source on that one.
lol, you think anon doesn’t own guns? have you even been to 4chan?
We’ve been busy fucking with the anti’s. You’re asking the wrong people, dear.
I guess knife fights are better.
As long as you’re young, healthy, and have a large build. Guns are equalizers. They are what empowers people to live without the fear of being taken over by someone bigger or stronger. Why don’t you tell my grandma not to carry a gun anymore and instead use a knife? That’s fair, right? Two thugs against an old lady with a pocket-knife?
Are you aware of the 1,000’s of laws that are already on the books? The people who commit these crimes break dozens of weapon laws when they carry out their vicious acts. The law, and the stiff penalties behind them don’t seem to be doing much to deter these crazies. I don’t think a few more is going to make a lick of difference.
keep on making those assumptions, guy.
Sorry, I’m a bit on edge. I’ve spent the last 3 weeks fighting to maintain my rights and defend myself against people who think I’m “evil” and “dangerous” for owning guns. That comment was pretty harsh, I’ll agree. I’m sorry for that. But can people at least acknowledge how scary all of this political crap is for gun owners? I’ve never hurt anyone in my life and now there are politicians that are trying to write legislation that would have me either turn in my rifle or go to jail. I’m downright scared.
Hey guys! I have an awesome Idea! Lets all pay attention to this loser! Lets put his name and picture everywhere so that his disgusting violent acts get national attention! Thanks buzzfeed for continuing the cycle. As far as I’m concerned, the blood is on the hands of every journalist that exploits these “stories” for a quick sell or advertisement hits. People want to blame gun owners for this type of shit? How about we start blaming the media for encouraging these fuck-tards by making them celebrities.
I don’t care who he is. Your comment just implies that he’s better than everyone else. He isn’t. He is trying to disarm the nation while under the protection of weapons. I guess nobody else deserves that level of protection though, right? These people are hypocrites. Did you know your beloved Dianne Feinstein has a Conceal & Carry permit? Yup, the same woman who said, “”My view of guns is simple. I hate guns and I cannot imagine why anyone would want to own one.” carries one every day. Yet she is trying to make good American citizens felons with her new legislation. Get off your high horse, wake up, and start asking why they really want us disarmed.
I went out and shot my AR-15 last weekend. It was pretty insensitive. get over it.
Wait, you mean a company that has stock in weapons supports the NRA? NO FUCKING WAY! WOW! This is journalism at it’s worse. Are you expecting your readers to find this politically motivating?
Lets get a few things straight, Americans are free people and have the right to arms. Americans want and buy guns. Guns cost money and businesses that make guns profit from this demand. Why the hell wouldn’t stock holders of a gun company invest into the only organization that proactively fights for the rights of the American people? The NRA is not evil. It is an organization made up purely from donations of Americans that wish to keep their freedoms in-tact. Get over it. If you don’t agree with our laws or constitution, go somewhere that has laws more fitting to your lifestyle.
WHO ACTUALY GIVES A FLYING FUCK?!
THIS ARTICLE IS MORE LEFTIST PROPAGANDA INFECTING A FREE NATION! Jesus, people. Think for yourselves a little. This guy is an arrogant prick who comes to our country to make a bunch of money, then he belittles the very nation housing him. Get rid of his ass. Drop guns from the argument for a second and realize that this dude should just fuck off if he doesn’t like the rules here. Go home, back to your crime ridden homeland of England.
“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.”
— George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on
Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788 You could at least learn some history before you try to shit all over it.
Sure, it’s dumb to protect our students. WTF?!
The president has armed security. The senators that write these anti gun bills have armed security. Our banks are important enough to have armed security. Countries all over the world have their schools guarded with armed security. It wasn’t a dumb idea. It was a rational proposition that has been implemented all over the world. When are you people going to understand that you can’t fight armed murderers with an 8”x10” sign?!
Wow, I wish he didn’t fucking lie so often.
He wants an assault weapon ban? Great, the 1934 National Firearms Act already took care of that. I also like the way he states, “I Am Not Going To Take Your Guns Away”.
Like he even could.
Also, this is further proof of how the media twists stories for the left’s agenda. This was a victory for gun rights, not a failure.
Oh you guys. Did you know that at the same time he was vetoing this bill, he signed two more comprehensive PRO GUN bills into act? You anti gun people are far from winning this. http://www.nraila.org/legislation/state-legislation/2012/12/michigan-two-pro-gun-bills-signed-by-governor,-one-vetoed.aspx
lol, did you have fun typing all that? I’ve been busy refuting real arguments. The reason I didn’t bother to argue yours, is simply because I didn’t feel like it. I still don’t feel like it. It doesn’t mean I can’t. It means I have better shit to do. Shit like calling and emailing my congressional representatives. Shit like donating money to the groups that will support my cause. I’ll just cut and paste what all of congress is getting from me every day until they strike down this bullshit. You don’t get any new arguments from me because your arguments are based on feelings. You aren’t important enough to get “new ideas” from me. The Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 had little-to-no effect on violent crime
in this country which is why it was allowed to expire. Introducing a new
version of this bill will have the same effect as the last one; legal gun
owners will be burdened while violent criminals will continue to disregard
the laws. By supporting any legislation that further restricts the rights of common
people to bear arms, you are making it easier for murderers to commit
their crimes. I urge you to research the steady and consistent drop in
crime that directly correlates with increased gun ownership and rights to
carry firearms. Unfortunately, guns are a necessary evil. Legislation will not take these
guns off the streets and taking them out of the hands of honest people
will only cause more bloodshed. I will be following the way my representatives vote and keep these issues
in mind come election season. The first amendment’s a bitch ain’t it?
The reason I didn’t argue your other points is because you didn’t make any points worth refuting. You defeated your own argument just as you’re doing now. You’re trying to tell me that when the mall shooter saw someone draw a gun on him, this had nothing to do with altering his agenda? Get real. I gave you facts, I gave you sources, I gave you statistics, but you’re still really upset. Come back when you can offer more than the argument of “Guns can kill people and they are really bad you guys.”
“Prove it” you say? Ok, sir.
Sandy Hook: Police Response time was 20 minutes with 27 lives lost.
Portland Mall: (Seeing as how this was two weeks ago, I don’t expect you to remember) A Man with a conceal & carry permit intervened while the shooter was rampaging. The death toll was 2 people. So when the police took care of things, 27 people died.
When an armed citizen took care of things, 2 people died. Again, I will ask you, what did that “gun free zone” do to protect these people? What did your anti-gun legislation do to save their lives? Here are some sources for you…
also, quit putting words in my mouth. I never suggested that children carry guns. You can try to paint me as crazy but your efforts are futile. I rely on statistics and facts to make my arguments while you resort to slander and name calling. The anti-gun crowd asked for a civil discussion on gun control, but when their opposition shows up and makes an irrefutable point, they cry, shout names, and say we’re crazy. Tell me this? What is so crazy about meeting force with force? As much as I’d like to wish and legislate violence out of existence, it doesn’t work that way. Do you think making Nazi’s illegal during WW2 would have stopped their slaughter? Nope, we beat Nazi’s with force. Taking “force” out of the average citizens’ hands will only leave them susceptible to force from the not-so-average (murderers). Please tell me more about how well your “Gun Free Zones” have been working out for you.
I haveadifferent opinion than you and that meansIam bad person withasmall brain? Please allow me to further explain… Gun sales and Conceal Permits have been onasteep rise over the past decade. Guess what? Violent crime has steadily been decreasing. (This includes gun violence.)
Numbers don’t lie, and as horrible as these mass killings are, we are still safer than we have ever been if you take crime statistics into consideration.
While events like this are scary and gutwrenching, please realize that guns are unfortunatelyanecessary evil. We should be looking at realistic ways to keep them out of the wrong hands, not knee-jerk reaction legislation that only hurts our crime rate. The last AWB of 94 did nothing to effect violent crime. There wasareason it wasn’t renewed. Recognizing the truth of historical figures and past legislation makes meareally bad person though,Iguess. Do you think you can fight crime with good intentions? The principle of Sandy Hook tried that and it didn’t work out so well.
