Quote:Actually, quite a few people (Some being politicians.) have called for making guns illegal. Just do a Google and you'll immediately see groups who support it.
I meant on this board. I'm sure you have all kind of opinions in the world.
Quote:But you're missing that most of the gun crime is being done by criminals who have unlawfully obtained their guns.
And this is different from anywhere else in the world how again? This is not a valid argument at all. The problem isn't there. If it was that, you would see it elsewhere too.
I was being silly to highlight my point that the essence of second amendment was, IMO, ridiculous in today's world.
Quote:Okay, first of all, this is ridiculous! Very few people with guns are actually stockpiling, and they're not doing it to keep the Government in check. Also, you don't have to hate or fear The Government to be a gun owner, there are plenty of average people and even Democrats who own guns. Also, the Second Amendment has been in place for CENTURIES, and guns have been LEGAL for centuries. I'll address your other point.
What does it prove or change that politicians have support the second amendment for a longer time than I was against? Of course they won't go against the people who vote for them. That is part of the problem if you ask me.
Quote:You're only HALF-joking about people owning nuclear weapons? That's never been legal, and most people wouldn't want them or be able to get them if they tried. That is one reeeeeealllly bad comparison. And if you're against the Second Amendment, that's cool, but our courts and most politicians have been for it for a lot longer than you've been against it. Sorry!
I think it does too.
Quote:So if a thief holds a gun on you and you have a chance of protecting yourself, you shouldn't do it? Actually, THIS (And only this.) part makes sense.
Quote:Yeah, the not rape or murder is the problem here, not if someone mugs you for a wallet.
We agree about that, however, I'll point out that it is the same for anywhere in the world... again. How come there is less of all that kind of violence elsewhere in similarly "developed" countries when they have less guns to protect themselves? Oh, wait...
