40 Reasons To Implement Gun Control:

1. Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, and Chicago cops need guns.
2. Washington DC's low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Indianapolis' high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.
3. Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are "just statistics".
4. The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994, are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates, which have been declining since 1991.
5. We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid.
6. The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals.
7. An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
8. A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.
9. When confronted by violent criminals, you should "put up no defense-give them what they want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981, p. 125).
10. The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns and Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.
11. One should consult an automotive engineer for safer seatbelts, a civil engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon for internal medicine, a computer programmer for hard drive problems, and Sarah Brady for firearms expertise.
12. The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, refers to the National Guard, which was created 130 years later, in 1917.
13. The National Guard, federally funded, with bases on federal land, using federally-owned weapons vehicles buildings and uniforms, punishing trespassers under federal law, is a "state" militia.
14. These phrases; "right of the people peaceably to assemble ", "right of the people to be secure in their homes", "enumerations herein of certain rights shall not be construed to disparage others retained by the people", and "The powers not delegated herein are reserved to the states respectively, and to the people."all refer to individuals, but "the right of the people to keep and bear arms." refers to the state.
15. "The Constitution is strong and will never change." But we should ban and seize all guns thereby violating the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendments to that Constitution.
16. Rifles and handguns aren't necessary to national defense! Of course, the army has hundreds of thousands of them.
17. Private citizens shouldn't have handguns, because they aren't "military weapons", but private citizens shouldn't have "assault rifles", because they are military weapons.
18. In spite of waiting periods, background checks, fingerprinting, government forms, etc., guns today are too readily available, which is responsible for recent school shootings. In the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's, anyone could buy guns at hardware stores, army surplus stores, gas stations, variety stores, Sears mail order, no waiting, no background check, no fingerprints, no government forms and there were no school shootings.
19. The NRA's attempt to run a "don't touch" campaign about kids handling guns is propaganda, but the anti-gun lobby's attempt to run a "don't touch" campaign is responsible social activity.
20. Guns are so complex that special training is necessary to use them properly, and so simple to use that they make murder easy.
21. A handgun, with up to 4 controls, is far too complex for the typical adult to learn to use, as opposed to an automobile that only has 20.
22. Women are just as intelligent and capable as men, but a woman with gun is "an accident waiting to happen" and gun makers' advertisements aimed at women are "preying on their fears."
23. Ordinary people in the presence of guns turn into slaughtering butchers but revert to normal when the weapon is removed.
24. Guns cause violence, which is why there are so many mass killings at gun shows.
25. A majority of the population supports gun control, just like a majority of the population supported owning slaves.
26. Any self-loading small arm can legitimately be considered to be a "weapon of mass destruction" or an "assault weapon."
27. Most people can't be trusted, so we should have laws against guns, which most people will abide by because they can be trusted.
28. The right of Internet pornographers to exist cannot be questioned because it is constitutionally protected by the Bill of Rights, but the use of handguns for self defense is not really protected by the Bill of Rights.
29. Free speech entitles one to own newspapers, transmitters, computers, and typewriters, but self-defense only justifies bare hands.
30. The ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly defends certain parts of the Constitution, and the NRA is bad, because it defends other parts of the Constitution.
31. Charlton Heston, a movie actor as president of the NRA is a cheap lunatic who should be ignored, but Michael Douglas, a movie actor as a representative of Handgun Control, Inc. is an ambassador for peace who is entitled to an audience at the UN arms control summit.
32. Police operate with backup within groups, which is why they need larger capacity pistol magazines than "civilians" who must face criminals alone and therefore need less ammunition.
33. We should ban "Saturday Night Specials" and other inexpensive guns because it's not fair that poor people have access to guns too.
34. Police officers have some special Jedi-like mastery over handguns that private citizens can never hope to obtain.
35. Private citizens don't need a gun for self-protection because the police are there to protect them even though the Supreme Court says the police are not responsible for their protection.
36. Citizens don't need to carry a gun for personal protection but police chiefs, who are desk-bound administrators who work in a building filled with cops, need a gun.
37. "Assault weapons" have no purpose other than to kill large numbers of people. The police need assault weapons. You do not.
38. When Microsoft pressures its distributors to give Microsoft preferential promotion, that's bad; but when the Federal government pressures cities to buy guns only from Smith & Wesson, that's good.
39. Trigger locks do not interfere with the ability to use a gun for defensive purposes, which is why you see police officers with one on their duty weapon.
40. Handgun Control, Inc., says they want to "keep guns out of the wrong hands." Guess what? You have the wrong hands.

I would like to add two that are not on here:

Guns go off at total random times!
I once saw a rifle, stand up, walk over to a elderly lady, and punch her straight in the face!

Oya and Police are the best at handling firearms. Check out this undeniable PROOF!

and I went shooting today
shot a ton of handguns (trying to find "the one" I'm going to CC)
All I have to say to the anti-gun owners is wait till somebody breaks into your house and is coming at you
what are you going to do? Ask him to stop and talk it out
good luck with that.

What pistol is tickling ye old fancy at this point?

I went looking at some very reasonably priced Mosin Nagants last night, and I have to say I wasn't terribly impressed with the quality. I know most nagants were beat up anyways, but the ones I have had the pleasure of tickling were covered by a nice cherry stain.


I was considering one, but outside of target shooting, which is not a overly pressing issue at the moment, I wouldn't have much of a use for one.


Yup....still going the AR route I'm afraid.  Grin

i have a unloaded Remington 870 with 00 buckshot in my safe. No burglar can mistake the sound of a shell being cycled into the chamber. Nice, distinctive, and loud

All of you are racists. That is the only reason anyone would want to own a gun. That is a fact because that is what I heard on the nightly news.

That said, I agree with both the literal title and content/ sarcasm of this thread.

Thats your right. Where I live the ambulance takes a minumum of 20 minutes to arrive on scene, the deputy sherrifs, a bit longer than that (no local police force, and I live in the second largest county in the US.) Crime is very rare here (Smokey Valley), and the only firearm death in the last 10 years was a suicide. I'd guess the percentage of households with firearms to be over 95%. It's amazing the valley floor isn't drenched in the blood of the innocent

I live on a military base, so I can't own a gun; even though the military probably has the best weapons handling training; taking into account of anything that my go wrong. Heck, I've been yelled at by a SSGT because my ejection port cover wasn't closed

The way it was on Twentynine Palms, was you could have weapons in base housing, but not in the barracks. If you lived in the barracks you could either keep personal weapons in the company armory, or leave them at a married friends house. My buddy Jasons place had guns from about 15 different guys.

I have been watching the Chicago gun debate and  court case closely....The Chicago handgun ban was one of Obama's pet projects, and although he would like to distance himself from it, records show he was a staunch supporter .......
If this proves to be unconstitutional, any further plans of his towards disarming Americans will meet with more resistance than he has ever dealt with. This also opens the door for overturning other bans in other states. if that ban gets overturned, Obama will look at his plumeting approval rating, and run from any further firearms legislation......

I'd like to try it, in my experience FN's are fantastic weapons with top notch build quality. I'm sure that round has great penetration, but I wonder about the knock down power.
