Great my faith in humanity has dwindled even more now that people are surviving two mass shootings in one lifetime

There was a Columbine survivor at Virginia Tech.

There was a survivor of a Canadian mass shooting at the Aurora theater shooting.

There were survivors of Oxford High(in Michigan) at this shooting.

I think America has a gun problem.

America has a terrorist problem. It's called the Republican party.

god I fucking love the two party system definitely not destroying the country at its core. And honestly I'm rooting for the more moderate ones that are trying to kick the crazies out of their party. There's going to be a split.

any true moderate republican was primaried out of the party in the last 20 years by Koch. Proof: John McCain was once the most right wing republican member of the Senate. He died the most liberal. He never changed.

You sure it's not a mental health problem? My guns haven't killed anyone.

Neither had Klebold and Harris's guns.

Neither had Cho's.

Neither had Husbands.

Neither had Holmes.

Neither had Crumbleys.

Neither had Lanza's.

Neither had McRae's.

Until they did. Your guns haven't killed anyone yet.

well also a mental health and 24 hour news media. [this video shows a seldom spoken side] ( banning guns won't magically stop school shootings. I know I'm gonna sound like a pessimist but we might have to start accepting this as normal.

We have a lack of respect for human life … but yes mental health is a huge issue along with the 24 hour news the nut jobs with pods casts that tell people what’s so wrong with everything all the time … people need to shit off news even get off social media and I think a lot of people will be happier humans

Yep, here we go. Deflection.....

I'm not saying guns are one of the problems. It's just not the only problem. I'm all for gun control within reason. I don't want people to take my guns whenever I get a gun. If I do get a gun it would be for self defense if the zombie apocalypse ever happens, and shooting targets for shits and giggles. Better than the idiots that only buy guns as a political statement to "own the libs"

Your interpretation of "within reason" could be vastly different from others. Unfortunately a lot of folks pro 2a here just want to bitch about how getting a Gun will be more difficult. They simply ignore all the grieving parents who have lost their kids, and imo, are enablers. They deflect alot.

And you’re ignoring the fact that you could ban all guns tomorrow but criminals and gangs will still get them.


CaseyGamer64YT t1_j8l07hj wrote

idk just don't ban assault weapons. just make sure schizos can't get the assault weapons. AR-15's are neat

One problem are parents who buy their angry kids firearms ( to relate , spend quality time with their kid) it a no brainer, don’t buy your kid a gun to make up for all the times you fxcked up in raising them. Go fishing camping or play video games with them instead.

That’s actually a felony. It’s a straw purchase. Yet another example of the gun not being the issue…


Ok_Couple_1667 t1_j8mnx7a wrote

There are many ways people gift Guns, kids can have access to them while parents own them, People transfer it to their children as gifts, that’s not a felony if the transfer is done , etc etc
