Gun Control by TomPreston Gun Control by TomPreston
Our US constitution permits the right for all citizens to bear arms, making the country wide banning of guns extraordinarily difficult to achieve and technically unconstitutional.

I dislike guns and am all for stricter gun laws to prevent further tragedies from occurring, but at the same time... banning everything would place an enormous amount of power into the hands of the sick individual who freely disobeys the law.

I don't know what the solution is.

--------

Edit: To the people saying "the police wouldn't lose their guns if stricter laws were enforced!"... no duh. This is a joke, not a depiction of a realistic scenario or a blueprint for a flawed solution.

Outside that, I truly appreciate the number of thoughtful discussions that are going on as a result of this illustration! It's really awesome to see so many people being respectful to each other when discussing such complex issues. Thank you everyone for being so mature about this topic and I look forward to reading your discussions more in depth. :)

i actually thought of something that might make everyone happy.  how about just banning the concealable firearms to the public?  one side gets some peace of mind, the other gets to keep shooting stuff

Gun control is not synonymous with disarmament.

Sorry to say it is an inevitable result though.

Alcohol and cigarettes are regulated, yet I can find both just a five minute walk from my house. 

Drivers are regulated by licenses and tests, yet the streets are full of cars.

Gun control ann't regulation, it's an outright ban.

"By accusing him to be an extremist of course! Denature what he says. If he says regulation, you have to say ban."

Okay. I give it a try. Evidence: there's more victims by guns in a year in America than in a year in the entire Europa (even with the actual violence in Ukraine).
Oh my god it works!

Falsified statistics, their own law Enforcement agencies say contrary prior to Obama. And still say the same if you know which channels To ask thru.

Except not . . . it's called gun "regulation" 

giving a person a gun does not magically make them clint eastwood, nor does attempting to regulate guns (which works well with drivers, alcohol and now pot) mean that we'll be taking away our killer toys
