But i quoted this because I agree with you on this point.
There are approximately a similar number of firearm related deaths as there are vehicular related deaths in the US each year yet you need to prove that you can capably operate a vehicle for the safety of yourself and other road users. Why the hell isn't there a similar licencing process if you want to own a gun?
If it was up to me. The Governor of every state and an elected delegation from every state would go to DC, make a new constitution, and rewrite a federal framework of laws. I think America really needs to be a confederacy to make things work better than they are now. Each region needs laws that match that region. I would much rather have a religious state than having politicians lobby to make the entire country one.
Then again I'm a Psychopath.

I just would like to remind than, on average, over 20 people are killed EVERY DAY in United States, just by handguns. Every day, about twenty individuals pull the triggers and end the life of others. Yet nobody gives a shit. But when one individual kills same daily quota, suddenly it is a national tragedy.
Let's start another thread tomorrow, discussing not one, but twenty new "deranged individuals", killing another twenty people. Which, of course, would have been prevented, if each victim would have a gun too.
I've run out of energy to deal with this level of obtuseness for today..
Jason, I don't hold a grudge against you so I'm trying to tell you this as a friend.. But your thoughts of this are utterly uneducated, ignorant and idiotic. I'm sorry to put it that bluntly, but you are making an utter fool out of yourself, and it's an embarrassment.. I know you're well intentioned, but please: if you care about your country: take responsibility as an American and start being more critical about which ideologies and opinions you adhere too. Because the things you've been citing is to an educated man what inbred hillbillies with a sub 50 IQ might be to you..
I really mean no offense, but it's utterly shocking how unable you are to maintain a discussion at this level. I don't blame you, I'm guessing education is to blame here..
To make it clear. Gun ownership shouldn't be a default right, it should be something you have to earn. You want to drive semi-trucks? You go get a license. You want to build homes for other people? You get licensed.
I'm also speaking from the realization that guns are here, they are in America. If you banned them outright tommorow they would remain a threat for centuries and centuries. Even if they instituted a license law or something like that all of the currently owned private guns would be grandfathered in and transferable. They are here and I chose to own them for several reasons, mostly for sport.
And, I am married.

I'm sick and tired of the double fucking standard around here. You assholes need to seriously stop being such hypocrites.
When this happened:
And the Mayor of Oslo responded with, and I quote...We neckbeards and armchair quarterbacks cheered them on. And cheered even louder when Jens Stoltenberg talked about responding to extremism with democracy, openness, and freedom.I donít think security can solve problems. We need to teach greater respect.
However, because this thing happens in "LUL 'MERCA" again, we fucktards and miscreants have the audacity to pull up some standard that is in effect "over here" and we think that it needs to be enforced "over there". Then we fuck off to some other thread where we collectively bitch about America/NATO/Group X trying to apply their standard to some country full of brown people in it.
What the fuck is wrong with all of you? Where has your memory gone? Your internal monologue that is supposed to occur before you press the "submit" key? Does the hate run that deep for an entity that lives, and operates by different rules? Things happen differently in different countries, and they have different customs and practices.
Christ on a cracker, I got more intellectual discussion on the matter from a heavy equipment operator, and a pipe cutter.
I love you guys, but damn you fucking suck sometimes.
I don't think that's right either. The 14th amendment probably implicitly protects a citizen's right to drive vehicles, in accordance with the law.
As for the psychopath thing, what you said, as emboldened earlier by zeekar, was psychopathic so don't be getting all teary-eyed over it.
I hear a life has been taken, or see a statistic and I want to know "DO we know why they died?" depending on the answer is when I feel sorrow or not.

I read the thread, and while there numerous good posts and a vast amount of shit posts, one thing is certain - lol US. That's pretty much what it boils down to.
But hey, at least you get to have fun shooting guns! And protect yourself! And excercise liberty and freedom!
