Gun control deprives rational people of the ability to use all means to defned themselves. The idea that guns cannot be used defensively is farcical. They turn up the intensity of every contentious engagement and incentivize deescalation. A fight with fists, While it can be lethal, Is not guaranteed so the risk assessment in fighting changes.
Emotionally unstable and violent people theoretically, Thrive with gun control as they can lash out without having to consider their conduct may have lethal consequences. The assumption that people don't revaluate risk is the source of all "care laws" or "think of the children laws". They do not consider that people will behave different under different circumstances and think guns wouldn't increase negotiation instead of reducing it.
The formula is quite simple. Once guns are freely available, The most intolerant and greedy people will go for the gun instead of fists. Since compromise and reason-capable people will more likely deescalate, The probability of them staying alive will be greater. This is actually well understood by many gun control proponents. Their reasoning is: "If we allow guns, Then our country will lose a lot of people because the overall mental condition of the society is terrible". The question, That arises with this is why would you need an excess mass of insane, Volatile psychopaths living then, If most of the world is battling poverty and food shortage to the point, That veganism might actually become mandatory for poor people?
We make people take a test to see if they are competent to drive. If they pass the most basic of tasks they get a license to drive. We have policemen to make sure no one is driving reckless and to see if they have a license.
There is no regulation with guns. Any yahoo can get a gun. They can even sell it second hand to other people. Did you how easily Mexican cartel members get guns from this way? Who knows maybe that gun you sold is in Mexico right now.
Guns are a false sense of security because if someone really wanted to kill you they could. You need time to react and pull your gun out and have a clear shot to fire. A simple squad of 5 people can gun you down. Waco texas happened and all those gun touting people died with their family.
Look even a simple germ caused collapse. Can bullets shoot the plague away? You have to realize that your best weapon is your mind not your gun.
No that is certainly not its purpose, It it wouldnt be needed as such. People would be violent anyway, If they were. Its not the object that does it any more than allowing you the opportunity to listen to rock and roll makes you rebel against all authority. Rational people came to the conclusion of guns after thousands of years of irrational people. It would be quite pompous of you to think that living today in 2020, You believe you are the one person born in history to the next level of rationality so much that you can separate yourself from all of the people of history before you that found guns, Violence, And war necessary evils to keeping their people happy and their families safe. The world hasnt changed so much that you can throw out natural tendencies yet, Not while we still walk the earth. It certainly doesnt help that you guys change the definition of violence continuously to suit the generation. If you keep doing that we are certainly bound to be violent forever by millenial standards. You guys are kicking your own ass on that one.
