All of you realize that there is no factual evidence that gun control works right?

    Like zero.

    Some places with lotsa gun control have more violence and some have less.

    Some places with little gun control have more violence and some have less.

    It is not a fact that gun control reduces violence.


    Having the desire to strip hundreds of millions of people of their rights on a whim is pretty fucking low class.

    Not so loud some people here can't handle little facts like that.

    So how do you "factually know" that if the assault weapons ban was in place, that one less child would have been butchered in Newtown. Do yo have a factual response? Or will you continue to scribe conjecture and your unsubstantiated opinions.

    Or maybe it isn't worth a child's life? Is it?

    Well, I could answer this by saying an assault weapons ban was in place when Columbine happened. I could answer it by saying you no evidence that a single life would have been saved and that, as previously stated, taking away the rights of hundreds of millions of people for a "maybe" doesn't seem very just.

    I could also point to tons of places where assault weapons are banned and children are still dying.

    It is also worth mentioning that less than 1% of homicides are committed with an assault weapon.

    I see the children's blood is not too dry for you.

    The Virginia Tech killer killed 32 people using two pistols George Hennard who went on his killing spree in a Luby's cafeteria killed 23 people also using two pistols that is two shooters four pistols and 55 people dead and not a shot fired from a assault rifle. Is that factual enough to show the same type of carnage can be inflicted with weapons other than a assault rifle? Just a add on here Jared Loughner also used a pistol in his rampage.

    Aside from strong background checks I'm very much against gun control and fiercely pro-2nd amendment but there's two points here.

    1. Gun control has been a major success in Australia as well as other countries.

    2. There is absolutely no evidence of future gun control or the government prohibiting your right to own a gun in the foreseeable future.

    Uno) Austrailia doesn't have as many of "those people". And the ones they do - they control better.

    Dos) Did you miss the President calling to ban assault weapons on Wednesday past ?

    those people? Are you talking about blacks or minorities?

    What gun control laws are currently in the works? It's all lip service and a rhetoric circle jerk to keep both sides calm.

    Depends what you mean by 'didn't work.'

    Stalin, Mao and Hitler thought it worked pretty well.
