Lefts Crazy Crusade Against 2nd Amendment (Page 2)
briansmythe: Yeah I agree your got to try to address the underlying issues. But guns arnt a necessity for ssurvival any more. Like they were when the 2nd amendment was written. Never going to stop violence . But its Gun violence that seems to be the problem. With mass shootings and so forth. Id rather some physio go on the rampage with a knfe. As the latest terrorist attack proved rather than a gun . Do heaps more damage to more people
briansmythe: They reckon people not being able to pay medical bills. Is one of the leading causes for homelessness in the US . But all we keep hearing is Socialism is the problem. Doesn't make any sense
Wild__: In my adult life I've deterred 2 home invasion attempts simply by being armed.
Estimates on personal defense with firearms range from 500,000 to 2,000,000 annially in the US. Even the lowest estimate exceeds the total number of crimes committed with a gun in the US. See? The mainstream media doesn't report that. They only report on incidents that fit their narrative.
Wild__: I have no idea where you're getting you information but I can see just from driving around town that the number one reason for people being homeless is drug addiction. If San Francisco the sidewalks are littered with human feces and dirty needles to the extent that pedestrians walk in the street.
Wild__: You know what happens if you don't pay your medical bills?
The bill goes to collection. Your credit score goes down. After 7 years its gone from your credit report. That's it, that is all.
Wild__: Drug addiction is the main cause of homelessness. If you're an addict you can't hold down a job.
One can keep a job and rent an apartment with a medical demerit on your credit report.
briansmythe: Yeah it sux then your got Celebrity culture
Encouraging everyone especially young people buy things you can't afford. Glamerize drugs in music . I donno its just a visious cycle. Then end up with B greade Celebrities as president
Metaphorguy: Also, the gov't is so large it's very scary going after people like the Gestapo and SS went after Jews in WW2, or how all this hype was brought against Communists in many separate areas throughout American history, plus many countries labelled enemies as anyone with a certain ideology and would arrest them or they'd get beaten in crowd control. Most of the time the labels were very childish, and it was really hard to even tell if they fit into this certain outcast group, or just didn't agree with the status quo at the time.
A lot of times, unfortunately, public figures will bring about this type of hysteria to try and deter real problems, like how the rich control 95% of the wealth, or food and gas shortages. They use these scapegoats to try and temporarily fix things by causing these riots and mob-outbursts against a common enemy. Obviously, many poor leaders have used these tactics in the past, and many more will probably use them in the future. What I don't get is that someone will make all these speeches against groups, typically racist or sexist and hateful comments, and then in a rally later these same people will be attacked, even sometimes murdered, and the person or persons responsible for the riots will never admit to influencing anyone. They will say they aren't at fault, never made the comments in the first place (which there are video and audio recordings proving otherwise), and then they condemn the people who do the exact things they outlined in their speeches. ???
briansmythe: But the second amendment was Written cos these for Fathers. Or what everyone calls them . Didn't believe in a standing army to protect the Country. The well armed malisha stuff.
But now your got the biggest standing army in the world
The root purpose is for citizens to defend themselves against their hostile government. Right?
Considering how technology has advanced and the weaponry of the US government/military is much more sophisticated. Shouldn't you be advocating citizens have the right to own missiles and tanks in order to compete appropriately?
Also, hasn't the silencing of media already started in the US without guns but with speech by the current President. Are you in the process of defending journalism by weapon in this scenario?
I'm would really like your thoughts on this switch.
briansmythe: So you reckon your keeping your Guns , to Over throw the Govenment , Really ,even Ambulance offricers have joined them in Parris
briansmythe: Actually Thank God they haven"t got Guns , Imagine the Mayhem that would Ensue if some wackos , In the Crowd stated taking Pot shots at the Police
Angry Beaver: Maybe they should amend the amendment...pretty sure they never envisioned automatic assault weapons back in the 1800's lol
The giant midget: Responsible licensed gun owners don't use their arsenal to commit crimes but we are all painted by the same brush has the Criminals.
If a citizen takes the time,the effort and monetary funds to obtain the necessary licenses and permits to legally purchase a handgun or rifle,its definitely nobodies business what it's used for.
The giant midget: A individual ( s ) that trespassed into your home ,your workplace your place of worship
violating the safety of your family members ,your co-works
Obviously the trespasser ( s ) isn't a good innocent civilian therefore should not be treated as one
He / she or Them are to be treated as criminals
The giant midget: If you don't do anything stupid you wouldn't get your Ass kicked or any need to go see the local dentist
Breaking into private property that might get your fucking skull bashed in or the opportunity to be a target for a bullet or 2
I believe that applies elsewhere in this beautiful world of ours
