Gun control

'If we ban guns, criminals will find a way to get their hands on them anyway!' Sounds plausible? Then why not decriminilize drugs? You know, because if you ban them, criminals will get their hands on them anyway. And while we're at it: why not decriminalize rape and murder? Because if you ban it, crimininals will find ways to rape and murder anyway. Right? Wrong! Here are a few things that were banned because they are supposedly dangerous. Guns are not on the list.

Here's a guy who's an active supporter of the Second Amendment. He has something to say to you:

Several schools throughout the USA have decided to ban backpacks to make school 'safer'. But why not take the meassures and take it a step further? Let's ban students in schools! In that way the precious Second Amendment Rights of people who love to empty their AR-15's in school buildings won't be violated and no child will ever be harmed at a school schooting again!

Here's a scenario. Answer this simple question: who in this video is the legendary 'good guy with a gun'?

'The right' has an other argument too:

So, if you don't understand what you are talking about, how could you even discuss the subject, let alone state your opinion?

Well, 'the left' has an anser to that question:

And let's leave all this 'left' or 'right' nonsense behind us, shall we? People are either ignorant or they are not. Simple as that.

And really, does anyone honestly think that if a trained armed guard - as at the Florida Parkland shooting - freezes, an untrained armed teacher could take out a shooter? Or a rushing swat team can instantly tell the difference between an armed student aiming his gun to kill and an armed student aiming his gun to protect? If you don't know the answer, just watch this clip and try answering the same question again:

Say, in the most extreme case, that every child in school is surrounded by a few highly trained and well armed guards: will that prevent them from getting shot? It didn't help then President Ronald Reagan, so how would having an armed detail prevent a child from getting shot?

And why are Republicans so lenient towards guns and so harsh on marihuana?
And if guns are really save to be in the hands of teachers and janitors in schools, why didn't the NRA allow guns to be in the hands of law abiding citizens at the last NRA congres?

The USA is not the only country where citizens can get their hands on guns, yet the number of mass shootings in other countries is close to zero. How can that be? Here are a few reasons:
