I know this will piss people off and I don’t care!
I have seen SO many posts about “Ban guns! They kill people!” “The NRA is the problem!”
You know what…forks make people fucking fat! Are you going to ban those?!
Knives kill people! Are you going to ban those?!
Bombs kill people! Are you going to ban those?!
Airplanes kill people! Are you going to ban those?!
Cars kill people! Are you going to ban those?!
Motorcycles kill people! Are you going to ban those?!
Stupidity kills people! Do you plan to ban that?!
Did you know there was another school incident yesterday? Where innocent school children where seriously injured? No? Well look it up, China has had an out break of stabbings in schools and it happened again yesterday…there were no guns involved. Not a single gun was involved and innocent children were hurt! You going to say knives need to be banned?!
You take away the guns from the law abiding citizens it just makes them sitting ducks for the criminals who will ALWAYS find a way to have guns. Guns are like drugs, here to stay, weather they are legal or not, and there is no removing them. You tell citizens they have to turn their guns in, no more guns, you think the criminals are going to do the same??? If you said yes…well I’m sorry, but you’re too fucking stupid to be here so please stop reading now! Criminals will ALWAYS have guns! Just like there will ALWAYS be drugs!! Making something illegal does not make it go away!
So your solution is to take away the guns? Fine, now what, they find bombs? Fly airplanes into buildings? People that want to kill and harm will always find a way to do so! Take away my right to protect myself and those around me…yes that will stop the crime! Chicago has one the highest gun crime rates in the country and it is ILLEGAL to carry a gun on you, whether open carry or conceal and carry…it is ILLEGAL! And it has NOT stopped gun crimes because the criminals know that people are not allowed to protect themselves…this makes them an easy target. So you want to do what Chicago has done? Ban conceal and carry across the country…that is a great idea…let’s watch the crime rates jump even high! For a while Chicago had a law that made handguns illegal, guess what…they held the record for the most handgun crimes at the time. Handguns were illegal to own, illegal to possess, but yet they had the highest rate of crime involving them…so let’s ban guns, lets make them illegal, that will solve all the problems…you’re a fucking idiot!
I am very comfortable going into a city, or just being around my town, because I have done the proper paperwork, I have taken the class, and I have to license to protect myself and those around me. I am not scared, because I know I can defend myself. I can protect myself because I have the right to carry my weapon! I have the ability to not be another statistic. I refuse to be an easy target, I refuse to be that “sitting duck”. Take away my gun and you make me an easy statistic, you make me an easy target because criminals will ALWAYS have guns! Just like they always have these drugs that are “illegal” too.
The problem isn’t gun control, we don’t need more of that. We need more information, more prevention, more education. Just because one person made a mistake does NOT mean every single LEGAL gun owner out there will do the same.
And for the record…the deadliest school murder in the US was not from guns…it was from a bomb. Look it up. Columbine was not the deadliest school murder…
