As he worked on the military base, Hasan clearly knew that there were armed personnel on site, yet he decided to stage his shooting anyway—his desire to kill outweighed his desire to live.
Proponents of even limited gun control maintain that, if nothing else is done, assault rifles should have magazines of no more than 10 rounds at a time. Our offer was to MDA since they have defamed our organization with lies.
Not all of them are going to take down the target. The mental health system in our country is woefully underfunded and often does little more than warehouse people who have been neglected to the point where their illness leads them to criminal behavior. The war zones have the strictest gun control laws and the highest concentration of liberals and the peace zones have more gun rights and more conservatives.
And those are just the ones who bother applying. Opponents claim that almost all gun owners train themselves in their free time.
This list is not intended to incite controversy, but to foster an even-sided debate. Irresponsible or crooked individuals exist in our society, and we have to accept that fact. This level of violence must be stopped. I suspect you do too.
Those who support this argument claim that order can more effectively be maintained by giving the citizen a gun with which to kill the intruder in less time than it takes for the police to arrive. If the five branches of the US military were beaten by, say, a nuclear holocaust, the only national defense left would be the civilians themselves.
He had illegally kept it out and loaded in case of burglary. If the police lack the resources to maintain order, the proper solution is not to arm everybody, but to increase funding to the police and directing them to improve. This conversation is long overdue, and will hopefully result in some sane gun regulations being enacted.
The same people who think ordinary Americans are too stupid to operate a firearm also believe they should not choose their own doctor, their own healthcare plan, or their own right to be left alone without interference in every aspect of life.
In the modern era, superior force can only be conferred by a gun. Violent video games are a fact of life across the developed world and the idea that we will change the levels of violence within our society by altering our media consumption will only lead us to focusing on the wrong thing.
Give them a chance and they will do it again. I ran across a great article this week written by Leah Libresco of the Washington Post.
That is not true. I was there with the Army in LA, by the way.The Left will never win the gun-control debate, because it's too hard to persuade people to give up their right to self-defense.
there’s an odd argument that it’s somehow illegitimate to.
It can't, because the policies liberals advocate don't work. So instead, liberals have to use emotion-based ploys and attack the motives of people they disagree with while attempting to keep.
7 Reasons Liberals Are Wrong on Gun Control Constitution, Ideals gun control, gun laws, Self-defense techniques do not provide protection against an armed attacker or more than one man.
Only a gun provides the ability to defend oneself from a safe distance. It’s well understood on both sides of the argument that gun restrictions won. It's common for gun advocates to claim that the solution to gun violence is to be more heavily armed so that you can take out someone brandishing a weapon against you.
That view is summed up by the popular saying, "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun." But again, that's an illogical argument.
Jun 10, · (Not to imply that gun control would prevent people from self-defense – I prefer bear spray and a taser over a gun any day).
These are only few of the many incredulous arguments that reverberate through the halls of your Congress today.
For each day we hold off of gun control, more than 85 Americans a day are killed by gun. It can't, because the policies liberals advocate don't work.
So instead, liberals have to use emotion-based ploys and attack the motives of people they disagree with while attempting to keep.Download
