To Bubba: The real world solution is to get your act together as a parent and raise your children properly, with respect for firearms and your fellow human beings who inhabit this earth with you. Anything less will fail. The government is incapable of fixing anything. All they can do is make things worse by mucking around trying to fix things and make life more costly and worse for all of us, removing more of our rights in the process. Family values is where it's at. And it doesn't require religion to have them. Tell me what kind of family values you are going to find in a single parent household with 3 children who have a mother or father who is a tweaker getting high all the time and who is more worried about their next 'fix' or who they can go out with that night than their children. You expect those children to have values? Right! And how many families are there in this country that fit that profile? There is the future of your country in a nutshell ... 5 months ago
To Reasonable, The following facts were gotten from Wikipedia.
A series of uncoordinated mass stabbings, hammer attacks, and cleaver attacks in the People's Republic of China began in March 2010. The spate of attacks left at least 21 dead and some 90 injured. I bet some of those injured were pretty horrific injuries too. Feel better now that they don't have guns there and only used a knife?5 months ago
He had been turned down for purchase of a firearm. The laws worked. Anyone intent on doing harm will find a way. In China recently a man killed 23 armed with only a knife. They have had a rash of mass school children murders in China and all used simply a knife. A bomb is easy to make. If you want to end this senseless violence, first stop playing it up and making it such a big deal in the newspapers. Media contributes significantly. When I grew up and we had riots they were front page news ... but after a while became common place and no longer got the front page treatment. Just another riot. Then the frequency of riots dropped. No more publicity. At home is where gun control needs to be taught. That is where all values need to be taught. You see here a failure of the parent(s). I grew up in a home with a lot of firearms. My father and mother hunted to feed all the kids when money was tight. All of us in the family were taught to handle a firearm properly and to respect them and never point them at anyone, even unloaded. I have never in my life felt motivated, even in time of anger, to get a firearm and shoot someone. The family unit has suffered greatly since no fault divorce. Single parent households, children raised by mostly women, the majority of which do not like firearms, do not instill good values regarding firearms (if any) in the children they raise. Go ahead and molycoddle your children, make sure they are never spanked, that they get what they want always and that the schools never teach them any values either. You will get more of this kind of thing. All values start in the home. The fall of America and almost all the societal problems seen today, is directly related to the failure of the family unit. Everyone reading this who has ever raised a child is to blame for what is happening, and the only way to fix it is to go back to a strong family unit with good moral values.5 months ago
