    Must be nice to believe you live in a world where no crime occurs and no one ever needs to defend themselves.

    Whether or not guns are responsible for higher crime rates isn't even the issue here. It's the twisted agenda of people that guns are an important part of out life. It goes as far as Morganator proclaiming that 16 year olds should be carrying guns around schools in case of an emergency.

    Seriously, are people really that naive? I get that you want to defend yourself but owning 5 guns has nothing to do with that anymore. Do you expect a gang shoot out?

    Just the simple fact you can buy a gun in the states is a problem right there your opening a easy way for people to make a easy choice to get one and that is leading to murder and all the other crazy $#@! that happens down there.

    You may not live in a society that would need this protection but look around you, look at the middle east. if people had guns to defend themselves, they wouldn't get murdered by their own leaders.

    The only way in Canada to get guns, you gotta be part of organized crime, basically the people that make a lot of money. That or if your friends with someone in organized crime. Your average joe down here won't be carrying a gun no matter how crazy the person is.

    No. No, we don't need more gun laws. We just need a lot less stupid, inconsiderate people. A lot of these killings today are from people who have succumb to childish ideals and selfishness.

    All started with no child left behind and everyone getting a trophy, but I'm chillin'.

    Criminals will hear about the new laws and laugh their asses off as they load up another clip. More laws aren't going to solve $#@!.

    There needs to be new laws about fools shooting up places like that. Kill the crazy $#@!ers asap. $#@! trying to get them mental help.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    These problems go deeper than that.

    People who talk about these murders and immediately think "guns are what should be addressed!" have absolutely no idea what they're going on about. They're being lead by the nose or are just naive- possibly both.
    A poorly perceived retrocausality.

    I agree.

    I don't really care for guns, but once I get my own house I'll likely buy a handgun. It makes sense to me to own one because of the additional safety it provides for my home. If I lived in a worse part of town I'd probably already have one.

    But I don't like the overbearing 'gun mindset' some people have. I don't want guns to be normalized, as if they're an integral part of living your life, where people are walking around with M16's so that when Hitler shows up they all can turn into Billy Badass and take him down. I understand the intent for safety procedure, but there's a certain point where it turns into misguided paranoia, or even obsession.

    Um a picture of the joker from the dark night saying "own a semi-auto rifle and nobody bats an eye" "Paint it black and attach a pistol grip and everybody loses their minds."
