This is not at all what it’s about you disrespectful cunts you spit in the face of all the people murdered in recent massacres by this the argument is not to fully ban guns but to add more regulations and update current ones to offer more protection to the communities of the country from those who do own guns and happen to want to murder people most importantly by increasing physiological testing for fun ownership and not allowing military grade weapons to be sold that doesn’t mean all weapons will be banned and that no one will be able to get a gun it means more control on who gets a weapon and if they should own a weapon or not and why
what the fuck none of these arguments even make sense how would gun control be used to disarm slaves who weren’t legally allowed to own anything anyway what the fuck
I really don’t get why people in America own like… assault rifles and stuff. Pistols? Okay, I can at least understand why for self defense. Shotguns? Okay, maybe for hunting. Hunting rifles? Okay.
But some of the shit I’ve seen Americans own really freaks me out. Like, why would you need those? To defend your home in case the government attacks you?
Because, news flash, if you need a fucking military weapon for self defense, the people you’re defending against will surely have bigger guns with longer range.
You think small arms are useless in a revolution? I.e. assault rifles and so forth?
Around 12 years ago tge most powerful nation in the history of mankind with a military budget ten times greater then the next ten nations combined decided to invade a backwater third world nation called Afghanistan.
Sure… America occupied Afghanistan (which we only did because of the trillion dollars in rare earth elements buried there waiting to be mined) but the funny thing is… even though America is still there. .. so are the fucking taliban. And by all accounts were now seeing the formation of a new Muslim state.
What did the poor backwater refugees from a bad madman ripoff have to defend themselves from the world’s most powerful military?
No tanks. No airplanes. No advanced military technology. Just small arms and improvised explosives.
So the argument that firearms don’t protect against government tyranny is a false one.
Finally.. and this is most important. It’s a psychological deterrent. Let’s imagine you’re a king or queen. If you know with certainty that your people are incapable of fighting back on any level are you more or less likely to engage in acts of cruelty? Are you more or less likely to deprive them of rights?
Historically speaking… we know the answer.
