Gun Control in the US
« on: March 15, 2018, 09:50:17 am »
I'd love to hear the opinions of other people on gun control/gun bans in the US, as that's a hot topic right now.

Personally, I feel that weapons like pistols, shotguns, rifles, etc. are fine as they are, but weapons that can be more powerful, exotic weapons, weapon platforms (AR-15), etc. should require extra training (along the lines of conceal carry training and certification) to be owned (unless modified to be inoperable, like a prop or smth). And, of course, you'd need the training to buy the ammo too (something like presenting the certificate of training when you go to buy it).
Ask me about betrayal.
Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.
Ask me about destruction.
Ask me about hardship.
I've been through s**t.
If you need to talk to someone, my PM inbox is always open.

I don’t understand why everyone’s focusing on AR‐15s when the vast, vast majority of gun deaths, including homicides, are from handguns.

The NRA started coming out in support of gun control when the Black Panther began equipping African Americans with guns.

Guns allow people for an out from abusive situations.

So do knives. Apparently in London the government tells you there’s never a reason to carry a knife. Sounds like they have small imaginations if they can’t think of a legitimate reason to carry a knife. I honestly thought this was a joke tweet at first:



Now acid attacks are on the rise. Starting to think that banning every potentially dangerous item in common use may not be the solution here.
