52. Because those things are IRRELEVANT

 

Stick to the topic. The topic is not the first amendment, nor is the topic the founding fathers' reasons for writing the second amendment. (Founding fathers who, incidentally, owned slaves and didn't think to give women the right to vote. They are not gods). Home field advantage, my ass. You need to make actual valid arguments instead of dodging the issue.

To wit, you "rebuttals":


You are saying that you are OBJECTIVELY less dead following a lethal attack with a knife than a gun.

Uhhhhh, no. This is so utterly laughable that I don't even know why I'm wasting my time responding to it. It's harder to kill someone with a knife than with a gun. It may not be immediately lethal, you can't mow down 30 people in 30 seconds with a knife, why am I even still typing? Stop being ridiculous.


Since stats are stats you have a reference to a study that shows the majority of gun owners will some day shoot a family member or kill themselves...

Google it. It is undisputed fact that gun owners have a greater statistical incidence of accidental gun deaths, suicides, etcetera. This is not new news, either.

Come on man, you guys have no arguments. You just like your guns.
