Fundamentally, the US does have a gun problem: http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/reports/mass-shooting

You do not need guns to survive in today's society.

Hypothetically, if you could press a button that got rid of private gun ownership (legal or otherwise) overnight would you press it?
>>
>>701991162
Does the button also get rid of knowledge of how to manufacture guns and does it also rid humans of violent behavior?
>>
>>701991321
No, guns would still be in use by the military/police and people would still be morons.
>>
>>701991567
Then no i wouldnt press it
>>
>>701991770
For why?
>>
>Implying that people won't just make guns, or steal from police.
>>
>>701991834
Because all it does is get rid of guns for civilian use, and leaves people vulnerable to criminals

>>701991162
The button only gets rid of ownership rights? Or it gets rid of all privately owned/stolen/homemade guns?

This cannot be refuted unless you can remove literally every single firearm from the planet you're doing more harm than good by banning them

No, just getting your head bashed in by a common hammer is; which more people are killed by common hammers and kitchen knives in the usa. (about 5 times according to FBI stats)

Humans will find a way to kill someone if needed or desired.

The United States states has an African American problem. 7% of the population ie black males commit 60% of all violent crime. But yeah let's blame it on an inanimate object and ignore the issue at hand and try and get more people killed because you wanna live in lala land. God liberals piss me off

The problem isnt the guns anon.
I live in a rural area, everyone owns guns. No children have ever died from firearms in my 30 years here.

Again look at what race the majority of those deaths are. I love how you dumbasses blame things on an inanimate object instead of the real problem. What's it like living with a single digit iq anon?

I appreciate that not every person who owns a gun will shoot it at a person but you cannot deny that the US has a gun problem and that there is also a glut of guns. If you can't see the correlation there then you are part of the problem.

Seriously this.

There are so many more guns in the suburbs, yet you can walk your dog after dark or do anything within reason outside and you'll be totally fine.

Walk after dark through an inner-city ghetto where there are truly far fewer guns, and you'll be lucky to make it out with your life

Guns have personalities and a vendetta against people?

Look at drugs

Do you think banning guns will make them harder to get? No

Do you think an armed robber chooses the house with the gun owner or the one without one?

Let's follow your train of "thought" So you ban guns right? Whoa there wait a second criminals don't obey the law so they still get them.

So guns will just magically disappear the second you ban them and they won't have access to them anymore? Oh wait no they won't they will still get them and the only thing to change is good people can't protect themselves anymore. Banning things doesn't work see drugs for reference

Except the other methods aren't as easy to carry out.

Killing a person with a knife is not the same process as killing them with a gun. Range, lethality, ease of use, etc, all make firearms different from other means.

I'd be willing to press a button that got rid of all GOVERNMENTALLY owned weapons, since gov'ts are actually the most murderous fuckers there are.

Compare all injuries caused by privately owned weapons, including cars, lawnmowers, knives, and fucking slingshots, with only the deaths caused by gov't small arms (pistols and rifles).

Your government is a lot more likely to kill you than your neighbor, or even some psycho.

Whatever can we do about that? I know! We can make it a foundational precept of our government that individuals have the right to keep firearms.

Also, since a free people are the source of all governmental authority, no lawful gov't has any authority the individual citizens do not, especially when it comes to harming those citizens.

>mfw there are no lawful gov'ts
>>
>>701994558
No because the problem cant be boiled down to one cause. It is like saying video games cause all violence, it isnt true. America's violence is based on many different variables and taking away the guns only put the vulnerable at risk.
>>
>>701996022
the vulnerable do not own guns. pressing the button would make them safer

>>701995582
No there would be mass killings

>>701996138
>no woman owns a gun
>none of the elderly own guns
>no single mothers own guns

Fuck off with your bait. Pressing the button would make them more vulnerable. Guns are the great equalizer no longer does a woman need to fear a man. No longer does the sickly man have to fear the healthy
>>
>>701996022
No one thinks guns are the cause of violence. Rather, they enable the violence to happen with a severity and level of ease that sets them apart.
>>
>>701992033
Actually look up the violent crime and mass killing statistics. After getting rid or seriously regulating guns, crime/ murder rates didnt change and just continued to follow the same trends. It society not the guns. Last thing I want is this dishonest fucking government being the only fucker armed

In the past few decades the demographic of gun owners has been shrinking even as there are more guns in the US. Many people who own guns hoard them -- which speaks to their mental state.

And that's my biggest issue with guns: the types of people who tend to own guns are the exact type of people who shouldn't own guns.

No. I might press a button that would completely eliminate everything "guns and up", and the knowledge of how to make such things, but I will not willingly take a means of defense way from the citizens if it still exists elsewhere. That's asking to be taken advantage of/ruled like a slave because you cant say no to the man in charge with the guns.

while the united states has a gun problem in terms of unregistered guns, we actually have more of a violence problem.
even though violence is decreasing and has been for the past 30-40 years, and the percentage of violence against military
aged males has dropped significantly, the problem still needs to be addressed as a whole to combat gun violence.
>>
>>701997424
as soon as a person owns a gun he's not vulnerable. a truly vulnerable person is someone who in your gun infested world chooses to not own a gun. your world-view forces people to buy instruments of death for them to feel safe

Your gun laws need psychiatric test in order to weed out people who will kill other people and people who wont the problem the states is that you can buy a gun online, no test to proof of id. Thats the problem. this eliminates the "Well I need my gun for protection!" arguement because if your mentally unstable and some guy says "no youll shoot people" guess what? you dont need a gun. end of story.

the weak are preyed upon, but not to the extreme as to having guns involved in the majority of incidents. it's mostly physical fights, which translates into far less deaths. having a shooting iny my country would cause high media coverage. in america it happens so often that people do not realize how often it happens

This is an incorrect assertion. This is no more correct than suggesting Rosie O'Donnell has a silverware problem.
As you are well aware, some people have no moral compass and place zero value on human life. When those people decide to take a life, they use whatever objects are at hand. These objects are unimportant to the malevolent and easily replaced with other objects, as goal is simply to assume power by taking life. Knife, bat, pipe, vehicle, poisons, bombs, or guns, they are interchangeable
What you are trying to accomplish is the disarming of the masses such that those who are physically superior have an easier pathway toward taking power, and enslaving the weak.
You are transparent.

If we're talking about the NRA and gun lobby groups in general then it's because they are just like any other organization with their grips around the throats of politicians and hands in their pockets. Politics is filled with shitty underhanded fags from all sides because that's sadly what wins in that realm. When you donate to organizations for your cause you're giving money to blood sucking devils who will do and say anything to get their way.

You don't think the Washington post did the study do you?
The newspaper is reporting on the study which was done by the respected and reputable GSS.

http://gss.norc.org/About-The-GSS
http://gss.norc.org/get-the-data

I can't say I'm shocked at conspiratorial thinking coming from gun owners. If you think the GSS used bad methods, then expose them and invalidate their study. But you know you can't so you cry bias. Pro tip: just because something goes against your worldview doesn't mean it's biased. YOU are the one who is biased if you don't adjust your views based on evidence.

>Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death in Americans aged 1 to 44 (NCHS, 2012). Firearm-related injury, in particular, is a serious threat to the health of the nation, with direct costs to the victims of violence as well as societal costs to families, friends, and communities. In 2010, there were twice as many nonfatal firearm-related injuries (73,505) as deaths.
>According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) Uniform Crime Reporting Program, 68,720 people were murdered in firearm-related violence between 2007 and 2011. During that same time frame, firearms accounted for more than twice as many murders as all other weapons combined (FBI, 2011b). More than two-thirds of victims murdered by a spouse or ex-spouse died as a result of a gunshot wound (Cooper and Smith, 2011).
>More than 600,000 victims of robbery and other crimes reported that they faced an assailant armed with a gun (Truman and Rand, 2010).
>if gun ownership raises the risk of suicide, homicide, or the use of weapons by those who invade the homes of gun owners, this could cancel or outweigh the beneficial effects of defensive gun use (Kellermann et al., 1992, 1993, 1995).

America doesn't have a gun violence problem.
The problem stems from the ghetto/blacks.

Did you know, adjusted for population, blacks are 200 times more likely to kill a white person than a white person is to a black?

In NYC blacks make up 23% of the population and commit 75% of the shootings.

Whites make up 33% of NYC and commit 3% of the shootings.

These kinds of statistics are repeated all over the country.

It's not a gun problem. It's something else.

You're right, this particular article/study only looks at the US.

see, youre so fucked you cant even imagine that this is not a real possibility in truly developed countries. i live in germany and the likelyhood of someone suddenly in my house with a gun is probably the same as me getting hit by a meteor. because people dont have easy access to guns. which then massively increases the cost of guns on the black market, which you even have to find first (im betting you dont have access to the black market as most people do). so all the normal criminals cant even afford a gun, and if they can, they probably got better stuff to do than invade the house of some guy cause they are rich as fuck. Robberies do happen here, but not with guns which massively decreases the probability of death in such situtations. I dont need a gun to feel safe in my house.

you are the reason America is losing touch with its roots and is slowly trading civil liberties for "social equality"

please move to Canada or the U.K. if you're too much of a cuck to handle freedom, don't poison the well for those of us that value it

Do you realize that in the US (Which I'm not from, I'm from a shitty restrictive controlling country when it comes to firearms) that all the cities/towns that have heavy gun laws, which are controlled by democrats by the way, have the highest gun crimes and murder rates? So... The places that have the tightest gun laws, detroit for example, have the worst murder rates.

On the opposite end of the spectrum. Places like Plano, Texas have the highest gun ownership in America yet it has the lowest murder rate in the entire country.

Explain that one genius.

The last sentence here sums it up perfectly. Just scrolling by, I don't argue with Muritards/muslims/feminists. They're all the same close minded, indoctrinated and self righteous fucking idiots in the world. Literally 90% of all the problems are solved with those 3 not existing. Excluding Africa but they're irrelevant to me

I live in a home where 3 people carry guns every day. We have been known to get into some heated debate. None of us has shot another.
tl;dr I live in a white household.

>Explain that one genius.
then explain to me the low gun and murder rates in europe
funny example: in the uk most policemen dont even walk around with guns and their rates went down since

I certainly have.
I got lost off the Las Vegas strip and a very kind homeless man helped me back to the strip. I gave him $50 for helping me. I asked a police officer to point me in the right direction, but there had been a shooting of a bus driver right next to where I was going. When I approached the police officer he pushed the side of his assault rifle against my chest and told me to step away.

I witnessed a mugging in New York City at gunpoint in the village where the sex and the city house is (can't remember the name)

Beautiful country, and definitely culturally rich but the fucking guns just made is a horribly scary place.

The funny thing is that I actually *AM* a gun owner in Australia, but seeing people carrying in the streets is bone chilling.

I think we both know that detroit is a thing of itself. theres many more factors there than just the laws

>Thinking you're free

Nigger. Trump addressed this 2nd amendment, almost got kicked out of the country because of it. I'm not a trump cuck, just pointing out the hypocrisy here
