It always makes me laugh how scared of weapons the euros are when compared to Americans.

Teach safety, remove the forbidden fruit aspect, all good.

Also having difficulty with the A-Stan reference.

So teaching kids about weapons=they go off and "fight for an oil company" and lose "their legs or genitals".

Yeah, this guy is a douche.

its almost like sex ed. people are soo freaking scared to talk about these things with children and in the end teen pregnancy and STD's are rampant.

Im all for professionals teaching younger people how to take care of a gun. Knowledge on how to do things whether it be dangerous or not is better than ignorance.

I'm all for teaching gun safety, if you have to use one, it's far better to know how to use it properly

What about all violence combined, or is only gun violence bad?

True, but not a fallacy of being able to own a gun properly. Other things about our society plays a role.

Look at Sweden (or Switz?) and you'll see it can be done. I personally believe things like columbine, the theatre shooting, VA tech could be avoided if Americans rose to learn how to defend themselves against criminals who couldn't care less about the laws. American society should embrace defending themselves. It won't happen until people feel more confident about the 'dirty' notion of owning a gun/

Sweden is an example of how it can be done. I am talking in a mere sense of 'if you're going to have it be legal in the first place...' sense rather than legal vs. illegal. But hard to imagine mass murders caring whether it is legal or not, and the resons behind these kinds of behaviors dwell in completeley different areas than whether a gun is legal or not.

So my main point if basically if you legalize it, and have a right for self-defense it will work much better when these things are embraced rather than shunned.
