i posted in the other thread (why are there two threads about this btw)

i'm pretty ambivalent on the gun control issue as i see significant pros and cons to either one, but if we're going to analyze the constitutional aspect of it it's important to note that the second amendment was written in a historical context where a firearm was a muzzle-loading musket or flintlock pistol, taking at least thirty seconds between shots to reload (and that's if you're a trained expert.) There's not a technological equivalency between that and a semiautomatic handgun or rifle, and that's something important to keep in mind.


establishing what constitutes a firearm as it relates to the constitutional right to own one is pretty fundamental to this argument and it's not really discussed enough, especially when the linchpin of the gun rights argument is "the 2nd amendment says i get to have one."

Gun control will solve absolutely nothing.

Drugs are illegal, yet people get them every single day. Explain that one.

Do you know anyone that can't get illegal drugs if they want to? I don't.

New laws involving guns will only handicap the responsible gun owners. Criminals or would be crimiinals will get guns just as easily as someone getting illegal drugs. Hell, they are already doing it with the current laws we already have. Do you think someone that has ill intent with a weapon, specifically a firearm, gives two shits about what laws are on the books? The answer is no. And you think new laws will magically make them come to their senses? C'mon man.

Great comparison

So you are also saying that guns are addictive just like drugs

You compared guns to illegal drugs.

Obviously you were trying to draw a parallel between them both.

Why do people but illegal drugs everyday?

I compared the current state of illegal drugs to the conceivable idea that some have of banning or passing additional laws will alleviate or drastically deter gun violence. Nothing more.

People that get illegal drugs do so because they can, just like anyone with a criminal record (or not) that wants to aquire a firearm for violent purposes. Know anyone with a bag of weed and rolling papers on a plate slid under their couch? How is that law working out? It's illegal. Yet the war on drugs is a tremendous failure.

Foot note: I also think drugs should be decriminalized.

Haven't read any of the thread yet, but on what he was saying:

1) Not the time or place to be spewing that crap. Really, it's football dude. Completely uncalled for and stupid.
2) If Belcher didn't have a gun, they'd both be alive. Well, if it weren't for unhealthy food options and people's choices about those options, millions would be alive instead of dying of some heart/artery failure. If it weren't for cars, all those who died in car crashes would be alive. If it weren't for reality, cancer victims would be alive. You can't take away guns. You need to educate people about guns and about how violence of any sort isn't the answer and how to control their emotions constructively.


Seriously, it's fuging dumb. Sorry if those points have been made, going back to read the thread now.
