10. You took the words right off my keyboard

Guns make it much easier for people to kill people.

If we didn't have so many guns in the hands of violent maniacs, the killings would be slowed down significantly because they'd have to go hand to hand to do so..

4. Great! Can't wait to see all the NRA supporters coming out in favor of universal health care,

expanded mental health services, social services that are put in place to help break the cycle of family violence, and a social safety net that supports families and children as they deal with poverty, underemployment, domestic violence and other ills. That would certainly keep *me* distracted from "gun grabbing."

8. How many more threads are you going to start on this?

I'll repeat myself in case you are incapable of reading responses.

If you think guns are okay, then fine. That's your opinion.

But why you would not understand that people react this way in the face of a horrible tragedy means, to me, you have little capacity for empathy.

Why would you act surprised by this? It's human nature. What you need to do is go back into your quiet corner while people grieve. Show some respect. If you don't have anything to say that will help people grieve, then you should shut up.

11. Guns don't kill people, bullets do!

The gun just sends the bullets on its way. At the bequest of its wielder.

Guns are a great labor-saving device for rapidly killing people - axes and knives against resisting victims are soooo burdensome!

For some reason, people object to automating some things. I wonder why...

12. Guns make it easier and increase the death toll

Just compare the guy in China with a knife and the guy over here with guns.

Both walk into schools and do as much damage as possible.

The guy without the gun, no deaths.

The guy with guns, 26 dead.


How much clearer can it possibly be?

13. We require periodic eye tests to drive a car.

 

Why not periodic psych exams to own a gun?

How about annually for young men since that is the time when schizophrenia develops in young men?

19. There have been guns that have gone off by themselves when dropped.

I assume at least one of them has killed someone. I also heard a story about a dog that somehow pulled the trigger on a gun. And many tragic stories about children finding guns. So the shooter doesn't even have to have an intent to kill. Many people have been killed in accidental shootings or shot when mistaken for intruders or wild animals.

28. People kill people - that's why we need stricter gun laws

A car can't drive itself, a gun can't shoot itself

I hate that lame excuse. People make, own, buy and shoot guns.

Heroin doesn't kill people, anthrax doesn't kill people, nuclear bombs don't kill people, TNT doesn't kill people etc.

Maybe we should legalize any and everything? I don't think so.
