    The Great Gun Debate

    Just a little YouTube clip from some of your countrymenhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlUSo7otKJ4&feature=youtube_gdata_player I'd also like to point you in the direction of @davidfrum on Twitter and what he's tweeted in the last 24hours

    The Great Gun Debate

    I see you're taking the easy way out, as usual, by ignoring a perfectly good point. Granted it was somewhat inflammatory, but the point was that you can't commit the ultimate crime if you don't have the tools to do so. Why do you refuse to accept the logic? People are reactionary, emotional and...

    The Great Gun Debate

    I wonder how obnoxious someone would have to be before the pro gun lot would consider using it. I mean if they were right up in your face telling you how wrong you are, how ignorant, how stubborn and how simple minded you appear. Just imagine it, they're getting all animated about it - but not...

    What would be wrong with them being kept at rifle ranges? (I'm trying to meet you half way ;-).)

    The Great Gun Debate

    I don't mind what conclusion you arrive at, you'd only be a fool if you didn't consider the facts and evidence of both sides ;-)

    The Great Gun Debate

    To put things from another perspective, it's illegal for a person to operate a motor vehicle after consuming a rather small amount of alcohol - so what's to stop them pulling a gun on the first person that upsets them in their inebriated state? These things are life takers, what place do they...

    The Great Gun Debate

    But the sickos who 'snap' psychologically aren't interested in that, they want to be part of it - everyone that's why I posted links to info about how many US citizens are in psychotherapy a few pages back. The crux of the matter is that if I was having this discussion face to face with some...

    The Great Gun Debate

    Okay, fair enough. I believe he had some military link and could therefore gain access to a gun. Now if you look at the numbers quoted earlier comparing the dozen or so countries and their homicide rares compared to America, then you'll see that despite this horrific tragedy, all of them added...

    The Great Gun Debate

    Clearly you didn't bother to read either of the links I provided earlier regarding how Japan and Australia dealt with this issue, probably because it makes your argument weaker if you look at actual facts. You just keep your head buried in the sand while lunatics go on periodic rampages and I'm...

    The Great Gun Debate

    Kids being cheeky and raised poorly is a worldwide issue, guns being used to kill children and other innocents is what we are discussing. Stop trying to avoid the obvious solution

    The Great Gun Debate

    You're talking nonsense now. How do you propose to do any of what you said? It's impossible. Just give up the guns, it's simple.

    The Great Gun Debate

    That's the point! The regulation you speak of is clearly an inadequate measure. Guns shouldn't be in the hands of the public, they're to emotional, irrational and unstable generally speaking to be responsible for something that is designed to take life. That's also why bringing car crash deaths...

    The Great Gun Debate

    How tragic will an action have to be to get you 2 to consider that there are better options? You Go on about these imaginary home invaders that you need to protect your kids from, but what if it was your kids' school? Your gun at home would be useless, but the gun in the hand of the psychopath...

    The Great Gun Debate

    I now realise that you're too blinkered in your views to even consider change, even change that the rest of the world knows would be for the better. This is highlighted by the use of the sentence "regardless of the facts". What else is worth considering more than facts and evidence? Tradition...

    The Great Gun Debate

    Of course it matters. Like we dicussed earlier, the lunatic in China only managed to injure those people not kill them. It should be as difficult as possible for Joe Public to get hold of a gun.
