Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Jan 9, 2013, 08:47 PM

Playing a new song in the gungeon.

It seems to me that the old standby: "ain't nevah gonna happen", has been replaced by "ain't no way it's gonna work". I kind of like the new song better.

P.S. We will make it work.

1. Laws, fines, and jail time for drunk driving violations hasn't stopped drunk driving.

But over thirty years its has cut the body count by at least 75%.

There is no perfect system, but the system can always be improved.

I believe that 2010 marked the first time that gun homicides exceeded DUI fatalities.

2010 DUI Fatalities - 10,228
2010 Gun Homicides - 11,105

So guns are more deadly than drunk driving.

And besides, there was a guy in Idaho who was trying to rob another guy, so the second guy shot the first guy. So that means I need to have 19 guns.

If you don't get that, you just don't understand gun terminology, so I can't talk to you.

10. Drunks and cars are each necessary for drunk driving.

Violent person and a high-capacity, semi-auto gun are each necessary for a mass killing. Take away either thing and it's impossible.

So people kill people, guns kill people, and guns allow people to kill a lot of people, instantly, and from a distance.

Except one, which was due to splinters from a desk. Which was shot. With a gun.

No mention of any massacre, individual deaths, or even injuries due to grenades of any type.

46. Nor do you have to do any actual damage to be arrested for drunk driving.

You can be driving perfectly, be stopped and still go to jail if your blood alcohol content is over a certain percentage.

So the analogy you are aiming for is; get caught with an assault weapon, whether you are using it or not, and go to jail? Sounds pretty harsh, but I can go for it.

74. I didn't. You equated having an assault weapon with driving drunk

Suggesting people should be arrested for both.

You're making two errors here.

1. While it's true that you're more likely to be injured by a sober driver than by a drunk driver, that's because there are many more sober drivers on the road at any given moment than drunk ones. The drunk drivers are still a greater risk (you are more likely to be injured by a sober driver than a drunk driver, but the drunk driver is more likely to injure someone than the sober driver is -- probability is fun). This is why we arrest people for driving drunk, even if they haven't hurt anyone.

2. On the other hand, an assault weapon does not pose a greater risk to people around it than a non-assault weapon. For that matter a handgun is the most likely weapon to injure someone; it's the drunk driver of this situation.

77. No, because pistols are also more common than rifles

It is both the case that you are more likely to be shot by a pistol than a rifle and that a given pistol is more likely to shoot someone than a given rifle. Pistols are more dangerous and more common. Drunk drivers are more dangerous and less common.

79. If you are right and pistols are a majority of all guns, and if it is true

that pistols kill more people than rifles, and if as I believe drunk drivers are a minority of all drivers then pistols are analogous to sober drivers and rifles to drunk drivers.

So I believe you are wrong, drunk drivers are less common and less likely to injure me.

95. That shape allows it to hold extra ammunition which facilitates easier mass killings. Thats part of


it. The smaller shape and bore diameter of the cartridges allows magazines to have higher capacities with lower weight, and for the weapon to have lower recoil as well.

Theres a reason the AR platform rifles are a favorite of these killers. Don't be naive.

The previously ban-compliant models are now compliant with Feinstein's proposed new ban with this new lower receiver.

If the proposed ban passes, this will happen. In about 30 minutes.

What's been accomplished, other than making ArmaLite a lot of money?

98. Its not the pistol grip, its the magazines. You can find a Remington Woodsmaster in every other


closet in rural America, or at any pawnshop nationwide for $300. Why don't we see those type weapons used in these shootings?

the stock and reciever are heavier
the mag doesn't change as quickly
limited mag capacity (semi auto, 5 round capacity)
heavier, larger ammunition
more recoil

I suppose if they have an AR lower thats limited to a 5 round magazine and a regular stock it wouldn't be an assault rifle, it'd just be a small hunting rifle.

100. Then why is it the pistol grip rather than the magazine we're trying to ban?

I think Congress has pretty wide Constitutional latitude to ban (or at least schedule) whatever classes of weapons it wants. I'm completely frustrated by the fact that Feinstein, our leading advocate on this, is introducing a bill to keep semi-automatic carbines with detachable magazines from having pistol grips, while still letting people have semi-automatic carbines with detachable magazines. It's solving the wrong problem, at great political cost.

2. Even that crappy '94 ban helped somewhat.

I certainly have noticed that a lot of these mass shootings happened since its expiration. Maybe the economy has something to do with it too. Maybe that Freakanomics guy was right and that with abortion restrictions there were more criminals born in the past 20 years. But availability of high-capacity magazines and the machines that use them surely does not help matters.

The best we will get is maybe a ban on large magazines (which will not help mass shootings much) and maybe closing the private sale loophole (which will not stop mass shootings).

This place was saying a gun ban was possible. Or banning semi-auto's was possible. Or collecting all guns was possible.

And it is not. It will never happen.

32. Universal, mandatory firearm registration.

Total inventory of everything that fires bullets. And penalties for nonparticipation with teeth.

Bet on it.

34. No politician has even proposed such a law

and it cannot be done by executive order.

You really think a repuke controlled House is going to pass such a law? Really?

they are classed as destructive devices, requiring a $200 dollar tax stamp and secure and safe storage requirements.

91. In response to this, I will direct you

to one of Canada's greatest Prime Ministers, Mr. Pierre Trudeau.

The importance of a lawful, orderly society supercedes gun fetishism.

It will never happen? Just watch us.

45. Thank you Warren for all your posts on this topic.

I don't have anything to add to what's already been said on this thread, except to thank you for hanging on to this topic and for speaking truth to (fire)power.

I always look for your posts now, knowing I'll find something right to the point of the issue.

Please keep up the good work. You speak for a lot of us who are sick of the cult of the almighty gun.

49. It was outrage over the Chicago Gangland that prohibited machine guns...

A lot of people don't know that law also outlawed hand grenades.

I don't hear any gun nuts claiming they NEED their hand grenades.

52. It's the same playbook the Oil Companies use on global warming.

Needs more study
it's too complicated
it's too difficult
there's no point
there's no problem
it will never work
needs more study

Sorry, but it won't. You had your chance in 1994, and look what happened. Newt Gingrich, Clinton's impeachment, a stolen Presidental election, etc. No, thank you.

86. Gungeoneers on DU are no different than Gungeoneers in freeperville

They obsess over their guns, declare any sort of gun control a failure before it's even been tried. They love to argue over semantics.

Fuck them all.

Unless the gungeon thinks Americans are stupider than other people. And I'm sure they don't think that, do they?
