Fuck yeah.

I love how Bloomberg fucked the dog so bad his law got locked up and overturned here before it was to go in place and it can't be touched for 3 years to fix it.

Both of you cut it out. Stay on topic and stop verbally slapping each other.

Wow, look at all of those labels that you used in a sentence. You 'tolerant left' sure love to throw those labels around, don't you?


Same goes for the two of you.

So did the guy hand over a loaded gun with the safety off? Sounds like he had a major lapse in judgement. As 1) A veteran and 2) a pro gun individual when I read this story it sounds like all parties were irresponsible and it caused a death. Guns are not toys, they require proper training to use and should also require proper training to own. The training might be the case in some areas but it is not the case universally.

Is training actually required anywhere for regular gun ownership? I ask because I live in one of the states with the loosest gun laws in the country, but I know some states do at least require training for things like a concealed carry permit.

At any rate, I agree with you for the most part. I don't have any problem with responsible gun ownership, particularly for things like hunting (stay away from my car, you stupid, crazed deer). I'm a bit more leery of pistols, although even there it's mostly just semi-automatics - I haven't looked up the statistics to be certain, but they seem to have, by far, the most potential for accidents.

FYI. Cars kill more people than guns in total. Subtract the 65% of gun deaths that are suicides and cars kill way more people. I say we need more "car safety" than "gun safety". Starting with stronger licencing requirements for a driver's licence. Stiffer penalties for " distracted driving" ect....

Seriously texting while driving is premeditated murder and not involuntary homicede. At least a drunk has the excuse that their judgement was impaired. What is the excuse for the ass hat who runs a child down on a residential street because they "just had to check that Facebook alert"?

The difference between the two is guns are made to kill. Cars are made to travel.

I do think there should be stricter laws on driving, though. Germany drivers test to the USA drivers test.... Hahaha. You cant even compare the two. It would be like comparing a 3rd grade math test (USA) to the SAT or the ACT (Germany). A complete world of difference. The drivers tend to show it too. Germans can merge like no other country I have driven in.

Seriously though, guns are made to kill, be it a robber, an elementary school or a deer.... Guns sole purpose is to kill (unless you are one of those who finds throwing money down range fun). Cars are to transport unless you put a religious nutjob behind the wheel (certain Christians and Muslim groups I am thinking of you here).

Actually, taking out 23 of your disgruntled fellow co-workers at the post office with an assault rifle would come under the heading of "Premeditated murder".
Texting while driving is just being a dangerously self-indulgent dick.

One must have means, opportunity, and premeditation. (Which, admittedly, the kid didn't, although he was accidentally presented with the means and opportunity.)

Throwing money downrange is very fun! But yeah, that argument of "well cars kill more people than guns so why don't you worry about those" is a load of horseshit anyways. Fast food kills more people than guns too(via heart attacks/detrimental to your health), how about a license to own that too? False equivalency all the way baby! And a drunk using the excuse well my judgment was impaired, is NO defense, just as texting is no defense. Both require the driver to choose beforehand to act irresponsibly.

Instead of "lol'ing" at the guy who died, how about showing some sympathy though? Especially to the kid, who will probably be tormented by this accident for years.

It doesn't matter how "dangerous" or "safe" something is or is perceived to be if those using it are mouth breathing cretins. All this proves, yet again, is that the 20% still exist and they are still retarded.


This guy gets it

I missed the Christian with a high capacity truck mowing over people this year.



Then again if you are a Japanese school girl, it seems those trucks in Japan are well known for mowing people over.

:lol:

this is like the last guy i talked to in another thread.. apparently his image of America as a whole was ..um. .. (as described in a short video clip he shared)---2-3 minutes long video with 2-3 seconds video clips from rambo and predator movies + porn movies

i got a good laugh out of it.. you can tell when one spent too much time watching movies and porn.. or news.. without meeting actual people or living in the country being discussed.. and yet he based his opinion on the US based on those materials Hollywood movies and porn.. yup.. those things will sum up America or Americans pretty well right ?? ..

so if using the same way of thinking.. japan is pretty much hentai and porn and a country full of oktakus who like virtual girls more than real women? since a few of them are actually married to them ?

i saw/read it on the news and met a few people.. yeah.. i know the whole population/country as a whole :?

seriously ? is that how people think now a day?


if i was online all day and only watch movies and news as my only means to the outside world or another country...i guess i might ended up like that...

there's a reason why they call it "news".. will you stop driving because of all the vehicle related deaths going on a regular basis?


it's a good thing you can easily tell whenever if a media was created by the people who knows little/notthing about the topic

i guess we are talking anime and guns as well..

how about this one?-- gundam orphans..

:/



at least do it like this--




but honestly.. i wouldn't use some anime screenshot with some subtitle to describe this situation.. since it will just show the obvious ignorance of the poster on the issue being discussed

California has a law on "bullet button"-- yes.. i got a good laugh out of it as well..but it shows the ignorance of some politicians and the people supporting the law... releasing laws for things that they don't even know the correct term to.. at least learn about it and know what it is that you are banning..

AR= assault rifles ? -- the news can't stop this repeating it over and over..

Silencers? -- hollywood like this term..



movie and news-- it's like the blind leading the blind in my opinion

cgi and keywords to encourage clicks-- is the standard of movies and news now aday..

anyway.. i guess this is the reason why SJWs can't seem to let go of the new thing with anime being racist/sexist .. since they are forming their opinion on anime as a whole based on a few series just like what other people are doing..

i guess this is how people are nowaday.. the electronic zombies era...

maybe we should do a challenge

how long you can go without looking at a screen ? (computers,phone, tablets,etc)

If you're drunk and you kill someone while driving, you still go to jail for manslaughter. Impaired ability to drive, sure. But to say alcohol has impaired your ability to make decisions like not driving a car while intoxicated? You better have a well-connected lawyer and a wealthy family to cover your ass.

The funny thing is whenever a discussion about gun safety is in place, the comparison between firearms and vehicles always comes up. But for some reason, "pro-gun" advocates who bring up this topic don't realize that gun safety laws are not meant to take away their firearms. It would be impossible and very expensive to do that at this point. It's actually to make sure that acquiring and keeping guns are given the same type of restrictions as owning a license to purchase and operate a vehicle with the addition of mental health exams and a criminal background check. There is no question that the current system in place is inefficient and outdated but I can't think of a single reason that any gun owner and firearm safety advocate would go against gun safety laws other than the fact that they're completely brainwashed into thinking the "left/libs" are out to take away their guns/freedom/jesus.

If you think I am just talking about the USA, you are far wrong. There are plenty of Christian "extremists". They don't get called terrorists in the USA due to it being a Christian nation. Think of the guy who planed to blow up a hotel full of Somali immigrants in gods name. Or the shooting of a gay nightclub as a purging of sinners for god. Or other stuff. They are just extremists because they are in the USA. I view them the same as ISIS who beheads gays and all that. Same end result, but censored in the country of origin.

Feel free to argue, but unless you actually provide something thoughtful and discussion helping... I wont bother to respond again. I took the bait once, lets see if you can get me to grab it again with a though provoking statement.
