Do guns protect you, or simply cause violence? (Page 264)

Sir Loin: The "need to hunt" is ingrained genetically into male DNA, it manifests in different ways: on the golf course, the football field or the forest where deer live

my dad built/fixed computers - and this was before home computers were much at all.

never played team sports, never hunted, thought golf was dull. He sure thought football was for jarhead idiots.

If it's tied to male DNA, it manifests only in some.

Dimpledquirk: i think it depends if youre mentally stable to have a gun... i think maybe at times you think of getting one but maybe just get a guard dog and if that doesnt work then try the gun. But to get to a gun right now youd have to jump through hoops, cause youd take a class and now i think dont they do like a mental evaluation to have a gun? if they dont, they should...imo

Sir Loin: Karolina, here every applicant for a gun licence is given a test on gun safety and is assessed whether they're suitable by 2 different experts. Then his home is inspected for adequate security and all firearms must be housed in a safe or a secure locked cabinet and the owner is reassessed every 10 years for mental stability. Handguns are not allowed unless you're a long time member of a pistol club and can only be used for target shooting, not home defence.

Sir Loin: No, you're in USA aren't you?
Gun nuts there, it's too ingrained into American culture to change. The murders will just continue getting worse

Dimpledquirk: No I meant that what you guys have over there is good, it should be applied here too, I mean I don't want a mentally unstable person to carry a gun...it's of course not safe....

bonzono: correct, WW2, like WW1, korean, vietnam, afghan and gulf wars were fought for nothing. I personally can't see any point for any war - they're always stupid land/power grabs which ultimately come to nothing, but a lot of deaths.

and yes, the nuke was largely to test performance in war. The japanese were known to already be on the ropes and close to exhausting their war effort at the time.

Sir Loin: Levy, I think someone in the US govt expects this and has suspended exports of ammunition to enable Americans to stockpile it ready for the coming hostilities. It's almost impossible to buy it here in NZ
