The issue of training is clearly addressed. Where do you come up with these responses?


Actually, that's clearly just a qualifier as part of my entire response, and obviously so.

Where do you come up with being so unable to understand basic and obvious things?

And if you read that closely, the veterans they are talking about here, are not necessarily the same ones trained in protecting people. They could just be trained Marines, which does not automatically train them for being at a school with young children every day for years on end.

Seriously, please tell me you really are a troll and not as unintelligent as you seem. Would you seriously automatically employ every Marine with security and infantry skills to look over your children? Maybe you would, but I bet even some of the Marines themselves would know better that it would take more training than that.


Of course people who are gonna carry guns in our schools need to be trained. I doubt you will find a single person who would disagree with that. But you can pretend to bash me on that basis. you can do better is all

quick question: how will the reduction in consumption/production of arms reduce crime?

And again, thats why I put it in there, as a qualifier that specifically states training is necessary, before blindly suggesting to just send Marines in. You are then, in fact, bashing me for adding what, Phatscotty: "[not] a single person who would disagree with ," I wasnt bashing you on that in any way. It wasnt even directed at you, but the more sane people to show I wasnt blindly suggesting Marine guards without training. I was, however, bashing on you for being too stupid to realize it was just a qualifying statement, in return for you bashing me, for just being thorough with my response.

Also, I already answered that follow up question and quoted it above when you asked it the first time........ :roll:
(im not bashing you here, just pointing out the obvious, again.)

I wouldn't have the least idea how present levels of gun violence in the USA compare with previous centuries , you got any stats ?
Gun related deaths are related to the quantity and availability of guns, period. Would homocides stop without the availability of guns , of course not , but accidental deaths and spree killings would almost certainly decrease.


Yeah, I think that would be the case as well, I'm just not sure. Unfortunately, my firm has an automatic block on any searches involving the word "gun" on google (this is also related to reason I cannot see many Hot and Sexy pictures in that thread) and wikipedia only has statistics from 1976 to 2004.

Here is a link to the graph in Wiki...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ushom ... weapon.svg

It details homicides (which include suicides and accidental killings) by weapon type. Handguns account for by far the most deaths and reached a peak in 1993 of about 14,000. "Other guns" (not sure what is in that category) accounted for far less (less than knives, for example) and had a peak in 1980 of about 4,000.

I suspect that the legality and availability of guns do have a relation to homicides in the United States. That seems like common sense. But, ultimately, the question is whether there is some other factor at work. That could be anything from cultural issues generally and criminality generally to poor schools to violent video games and movies.


On the suicide issue, easy access to a method is certainly a big part, It's common sense that someone who wants to die will find a way, but it's one of those areas where common sense is wrong.


I may have misheard this, but wasn't there a study that showed that different types of people tended to commit suicides in different ways? For example, women wouldn't, generally, shoot themselves, while men would.


To a large degree, men use guns, women use pills. Women tend to make it easier to clean up, while the men dont give a f*ck....statistically speaking.

More importantly, of those that try and fail to commit suicide, something like 90% dont ever try again, which means suicide is usually an impulse, and without a sure-fire way of ending it like a gun, more people would possibly live through their attempt, never to try again.

I would venture that if penalties for waving a gun in public were stiffened , and the penalties for getting stoned were lessened , then US jails would be less crowded and criminal violence would decline.


But then unemployment would go up.

The idea that one has to carry a firearm to feel safe , the notion that owning a gun enhances ones freedom, the fear mongering propoganda spewed out by the NRA , these are all highly negative mindsets.


These ideas (carrying a firearm to feel safe, enhancing freedom, fear mongering propaganda) are not ideas perpetuated by anyone other than gun owners who do not use their firearms for any illegal purpose. People committing crimes with guns are not carrying firearms to feel safe, do not feel that firearms enhance their freedom, and are not fear mongering. As someone smarter than me wrote above:

To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow... For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding.


That's completely untrue. Many things are illegal because they are dangerous and can be used by criminals to cause great harm.

Further, there is absolutely no doubt that people who have committed crimes with their guns, also argued for their right to carry those arms as well.

And it is absolutely true, that by you fighting for a freedom to carry a gun, you steal my freedom of feeling safe without one.


Can you provide me some more examples of items that are illegal because they can be used by criminals to cuase great harm? I doubt there are many things.

To the extent you can find many things that are illegal because they can be used by criminals to cause great harm, my response to that is that we should make those things legal. Just because there are other laws that denigrate the rights of the law-abiding in favor of protecting society from criminals does not make any of them right.

I don't see a lot of murderers, attempted murderers, or accused in Philadelphia arguing about their right to carry firearms.

Then you should purchase a gun, which is legal.


Stinger missiles, armed tanks, plutonium, nerve gas(unless you buy some insecticide), hand grenades...and those are just the joke answers

We should definitely give out missiles to everyone, as long as they promise not to use them to hurt anyone.

Its not fair that I cant go buy one.

Ive labeled you as a traitor to America several times, as I truly think you are to the very ideals it was actually based on.

Im sure they will care as much as you do.

Hitler labeled the Jews as traitors to Germany as well.

I think your point is kind of silly.

In addition to the many you fight to steal, the right not to have assault rifles available to wipe out schoolchildren.

And again, I must ask...arent I just using words here...what "actions" are you refering to.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

The constitution use of "right to bear arms" no more makes specifically owning an assault rifle a right, than it does owning a nuclear missile.

I like how the airlines do it. Pilots volunteer for an extensive program that, when completed, allows them to carry in the cockpit. Schools could, similarly, have teachers, administrators, etc., volunteer to complete a similar extensive training program to allow them to carry in the classroom.

"Who" is not publicly disclosed, so the potential is, any/all. Thus, schools are no longer totally defenseless, and maniac cowards might choose other targets.

Most assuredly, maniacs will always choose targets, and most assuredly, they'll find a way be it knives, guns, bombs, poison (remember Tylenol and other over-the-counter pill poisonings years back?) But at least kids in school would no longer be totally defenseless sitting ducks because the prof might be packing.

“Gun Free” Chicago Ranks #1 as the Deadliest Alpha World City

NBC Chicago reports on some of those “Chicago values” the city’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel (Democrat, naturally) touted, justifying his alderman’s refusal to grant a license to a Chick-fil-A potential franchisee.

Chicago likes to compare itself to other world cities, so Ward Room thought it would find out how we rank in violence. It turns out no one can top us. Among what are considered Alpha world cities, Chicago has the highest murder rate — higher even than the Third World metropolises of Mexico City and Sao Paolo.

Chicago’s murder spree of 19.4 per 100,000 is more than three times that of New York’s (6 per 100,000) and more than two and a half times of Los Angeles’ (7.5 per 100,000), its closest American competitors. Caracas, Venezuela, which apparently is not an Alpha world city–thank you Hugo Chavez–has a higher murder rate of 130 per 100,000.
