    Mass shootings

    Considering mass shootings have been way up recently; how would you go about gun control and any other preventative measures in order to stop gun violence from happening?

    Tight regulations on gun ownership are what cause basically every other Western countries to not face these problems

    "but then people will buy guns on the blackmarket"

    is exactly the threat of gun violence other countries face - and yet their gun shootings are abysmal small compared to the us. Because there only exists the black market. Nothing else

    No.

    The guns themselves aren't why this is happening.

    It's being done by bad people wanting to do bad things.

    Make it harder for them to get a gun and they'll just find another way to do it


    Your friendship?

    "bad" people have easy access to guns regardless of legislature. It is pretty easy to get a gun illegally

    It's quite funny how people are all like "but ma guns!". Yes, people that commit these atrocious crimes are obviously sick and need some help, but we can't ignore that continuously making guns easy to access isn't part of the issue. America is the only place where you see these mass shootings happen, so until they clean up their culture, racism, and other shit, you might as well try to limit guns a bit because why the fuck do you need them?

    And?

    A mentally unstable person with an assault rifle and a couple clips is a far greater threat than someone with a machette.

    Limiting legal access will raise the prices for illegal sales.
    You can buy an assault rifle off the shelf for around $1000 in America. It costs upwards of 30k to purchase the same weapon illegally over here with the gun control laws in place.
    It's alot harder to aquire them.

    The issue with America is they have more guns in circulation than citizens in the country.
    You guys have quite literally shot yourself in the foot.

    People who are willing to commit mass shootings, are willing to go the extra mile.

    this is a reductionist argument. you don't have to put your life in danger to obtain a gun illegally

    There are other ways to protect yourself than needing a gun.

    A gun is a great equalizer it allows the disabled and women to defend themselves, a knife will not help there. People are least likely to attack if someone has a gun then a knife. Another interesting note as we in see in Europe is that they just run people over which is far more brutal and painful, should we ban cars as well.

    And it hinders people who can have a gun who isn't a psycho.

    Take the Texas church shooting. The gun the man used to take down the shooter was a gun that many wanted to ban. Without it that kid might've killed tons more people.


    Don't use "A machette" when it's far easier, quicker, and cheaper to get a car with a full tank of gas than a gun. All it would take is going 80 MPH down a side walk or into other cars to scores of people.


    This is a people issue.
