Jesus Christ don't you people go out and get laid on Saturday night?

Velvetbabe,

You are illustrating the problem with the belief that banning guns will solve anything. We have a cultural problem, a culture of violence. Canada has never had that problem. They don't have gangs like we do and their culture is different not to mention they have never had guns to begin with.

To make a realistic comparison, choose a country that has a violent culture similar to ours AND has ready access to guns. Take the guns away, the violence does not change and actually goes up. There are plenty of examples of this, UK and Australia are the 2 that keep being used. Chicago and NY are some regional examples.

The problem that you fail to address with your 'lets ban guns because they kill children' shallow rhetoric is that we already have millions of the fucking things in our hands AND we have a problem with our culture. So you need to stop being so goddam wishy washy and get realistic:

1. confiscate every fucking gun in the country (good luck with that one)
2. address the culture issue

I know addressing the culture issue is painful to your "liberal sensibilities" but you need to stop kidding yourself.

Velvetbabe,

you are missing the point. Your argument that guns must be banned because they kill children, while you are openly supporting abortion makes you a hypocrite. I am FOR abortion. Abortion lowers violent crime and should be easy to obtain regardless of circumstance. Banning guns does not. It never has and it never will.

You should change your rhetoric or you will never be successful. You can be against guns, but you should really be against violent crimes. Violent crimes are the real problem. If you take away guns, even all of them, murders, rapes, robberies all of it GOES UP.

Here's one for you, I would actually use my gun to protect an abortion clinic and their employees from right wing nut jobs wanting to harm them. I bet your head just fucking exploded.

Licensing and training will do NOTHING to reduce either gun related crimes or violent crimes. Safety's that only operate when used by the owner are not realistic.

Are you guys really trying to make a difference or just piss off the right-wing gun owners? Bans do nothing and you won't be successful. If you guys really want to do something that will make a real difference, think of something that will keep shit-stains like this from getting their hands on a gun:

Whatever you are proposing, if it would not prevent crimes like this you are only making noise. Keep in mind there are MILLIONS of guns already in circulation. Register them you say? Bullshit. Crimes will be committed with unregistered guns that were traded on the black market. Confiscate them? Good luck, that will drive every fringe group to declare war. Oklahoma city bombing anyone?

Why don't we make being in a gang illegal? If you crack down on gangs you will stop a lot of the gun violence. Let them duke it out and shank each other in prison riots and not the streets and neighborhoods we live in. Legalize more drugs, the drug trade drives most gun violence. I have no problem voting for and funding these things as they will actually work and tax revenue from drug sales can fund the gang prisons we'll need.

The guns in my possession are my issue, not yours, got it? There are already laws that restrict gun ownership. I follow them. I don't give a shit about how many abortions you have. I don't give a shit how many girlfriends/husbands you have at the same time. You want the right to kill a child (or zygote, if that makes you feel better) that's fine with me. That's your choice. But to then make the argument that all guns kill children therefore must be banned makes you a fucking hypocrite. And an idiot.

"A fucking hobby vs a 20 slaughtered five year olds."

hmm, reading some of your posts, and your support of open marriages and gay rights I see that you have a hobby, fucking. This 'fucking hobby' is responsible for more abortions (child murder) than the number of victims of violent crime. So, you want to ban my fucking hobby but not yours? You're a fucking hypocrite.
