Pro Gun Control? Get in here!!!
Saturday, January 16, 2010 4:54 PM on j-body.org
Please Explain!!!

Now we need to give the people the rights they deserve, to have access to the same weapons as law enforcement. I'm not talking military style weapons like rocket launchers and grenades, but full auto weapons, SBR's, etc. should be legal to own (IMO).


Thomas Jefferson wrote:

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

George Washington wrote:

The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.

I believe that it was a 1930's case that stated that the second amendment meant, that "standard issue firearms" is what is legal for citizens to own.
They used that argument to make shotguns under 18" illegal.

I want my M249!

Don't expect an answer though.

The battle sir, is not of the strong alone. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death."

The focus of the discussion should be this link. Please Explain!!! As in why has the homicide rate in DC at a 45 year low the first year into allowing private citizens to posses handguns?

The other stuff was just my opinion.

So there is not one gun control advocate that's willing to come into this thread and try and spin it into "guns are bad"?

Maybe the results posted in the article are just too much for them to argue with.




GUNS FOR EVERYONE!!!!!

Very few control/ban advocates around here. You'll have to get more creative with your bait nowadays. The bASSES are wisening up to those tricks. They'll lie in wait until some Ralphy shoots his eye out with a .44, then jump in screaming "I told you so!!!"

The "Gun control Debate" is another stupid, useless tool used to split the sheep into two camps. Pick a side. Oh, and you only get two choices.

What, you have a different idea? Get the fcuk out, you're not allowed to have independent thought! This is America, and you'll choose a side, dammit!

What a country. We are all fools for even playing this game.

Yes. Of course, using language witten about muzzle-loader muskets and Redcoats remains completely crystal clear 230 years later...

Truly. Who freaking cares. To all I say: Own a gun if you want, don't if you don't, but find something good to do with your time other than whining about the other side.

And yet Freedom of speech, and press don't get counted the same here?

Sure they do. You're free to say what you want, just as others are free to roll their eyes over it. Don't let me stop you!

Its still valid.... both sides just have better guns now...... saying we shouldn't have rights because we where given them hundreds of years ago and they dont count anymore is ridiculous.

There would be only one reason teh government would try to ban all guns..... and that would be so we wouldnt be a threat when they come in and take the last bit of freedoms away that we still have..

History has showed it happen in country after country after country....

which is why if it ever happens here, im going on a killing spree

and ya.. the JBO tends to be pro gun for the most part.

Context, my man, context. That was a very different era, with a war that had just been fought by a general population organized into an impromptu army.

It's as valid as telling folks they need to have a good supply of salt to keep their meat fresh through the summer, or that screwing one's own slaves can lead to tan-skinned children that the neighbors giggle at. Using it as a way to ensure private gun ownership is "legal" today is lame. Such a right does not, and never did, need a Constitutional Amendment. It is inherent, just as is the right to own a home or car.

Sure glad that amendment is there though. Besides gun haters can go swan dive off a bridge. US Supreme court ruled tha individuals have the right to own pistols in DC. Context my a$$. A right is a right, no matter which way the wind is blowing.

The thing is.... the 2nd amendment is the only thing left thats keeping them from trying to take guns away from us.... as outdated as it may be, its still true and needs to be there.

"Them" do not have the power to seize guns. "Them" cannot execute a blanket seizure of personal property. Hiding it behind the 2nd amendment is another tool to get you fired up and fighting about things. Nothing more.

Fact is, laws allowing firearm ownership exist in most every significant nation on earth, whether European, Asian, or Arab. There's next to no precedent for taking this basic right away. It's not going to ever happen, and arguing about it isjust one more tool to make the sheep bleat. I don't mean to burst y'alls bubble, but you are being fed a crock of sh!t over this "controversy".

Smartest thing you've said in a lon... nevermind.
But unfortunatly lack of education combined with lousy culture prevents it from being succesful here.
Think about it, we have people thinking we should bomb places who don't think like us. Not much different from a terr... nevermind, you get the picture.

I will say this... Ask my neighbor's police partner what type of gun control should exist, as he's dead after a conflict with a robber and a AK-47.

All I have to say is that guns are not the problem

stupid f-ing people are.

quit blaming the f-ing guns

If I want to kill someone and dont have a gun i'll just use my kabar instead

the only reason politicians really want us not to have guns and for the police to keep theirs is so we can be more easily controlled.

Thats the truth, thats the facts, and thats the way it really is.

If you think otherwise your a fool... but I dont care because im still armed and your not so I win.

blame the people, not the tools.

Nice try at making me out to be the bad guy for wanting to hit them back though.

Meh. I'm armed too, and I fear no politician, nor do I feel my guns give me any power over them. I refuse to let either side of this tawdry debate push my buttons over this. I see it for what it is, just another bullsh!t sheeperding tactic. Well, that, and a way to funnel money to a private organization that lives high on the hog with their mental slaves' money. Viva NRA!
