I always carry a 9mm.

Have a 12 gauge in the house with 00buck waiting for anyone that wants to come through the door. Police do not stop crime they just show up after the fact to take a report.

When seconds count the cops are minutes away. they can catch the bad guys only after they've done what they want to do to you, UNLESS you defend yourself.

U don't need a weapon to protect yourself!

U macho shithead gun control advocates, I have no hope whatever that any facts whatever will make the slightest dent in their thinking - or lack of thinking.

Do Not Get Me Started!

So if someone breaks into your home and has a gun what should you do? Cry and beg for mercy or shoot them? I like the shoot them option better.

This could get even more amusing and fun for all if this was moved into the Meltdown section, BF. Just sayin.

I tried to explain the American concept of Gun Control to a Kiwi who had never been to America. I have my own views on it, but I tried to stay objective.

About half way through the explanation, she asks, "What the fuck is the matter with you Americans? We have guns here (in NZ). We just don't use them."

That best sums up my feeling on gun control.

There are a lot of places where people have easy access to guns, but there are very few shootings. Iceland, Switzerland etc.

And there are places where it is hard to get guns like Mexico and Brazil that have large numbers of gun murders.

Its primarily demographically driven in the US. Our murder rate is higher than other similar western countries., but that is largely due to our Hispanic and black populations. for instance blacks are only 13% of the US population, but are responsible for over half of the murders in the US.

The above statement could easily be construed as racist; a word I find most offensive, not the concept per se, but the word itself because of the context it is often used.

Why is it perfectly acceptable to say "Pit bulls are more aggressive than Labradors", but not ok to say that "Mongoloids (Asians) are smarter and/or more studious, than Caucasoids (Westerners)"

I recall a story about copernicus throwing stuff off the leaning tower of pisa (bear with me there is a point to this) and he concluded that objects fall at the same rate no matter what size they were. the church considered this blasphemy. But he was right, and he proved it..

Think of it like this- political correctness is the new religion, and the idea that races behave differently is the new blasphemy.

If telling the truth becomes "racist" what do we need to do? We need to alter what we deem as "racist," not alter the truth.

Just let the US government do its job; it'll work itself out.

It may be a cliche, but it became a cliche by being true in many places and for a long time: Gun control means hitting what you aim at.

Out of control.
Take the guns and rowdy gunowners to an internment type facility to desensitize them. Its an infatuation is all and its out of control!

I am 100% pro the first amendment of the United States. I have no issue with keeping a firearm to protect yourself. However, there is a gun problem in America and I honestly have no solution for the issue. I am frustrated with each time the gun debate comes up on social media you have people talking about following the Australian model of gun control because with as many firearms in America as there are citizens that isn't remotely feasible.

The complication resides in America's culture, not so much the firearms in and of themselves because violence is inherent to American identity, it has been ingrained into every aspect of our society.

Violence is inherent in the human identity. That's the reason gun controlled Chicago is out of control when it comes to crimes involving guns that are theoretically not supposed to be there.

We humans are an apex predator species, which means that a lot of what we prey on is... other humans. Particularly the ones who can't fight back. That's why most mass shootings take place in "gun free" schools rather than at police stations.
