Here's the top gun nut arguments so far, with my rebuttals...

2. "Obama (Congress, etc.) has armed guards!"

You are not the president of the United States. You're just a gun nut with delusions of adequacy. How bleeping stupid must one be before one is unable to understand that the most powerful office in the world merits extra protection, especially as more than a few presidents have been SHOT? Is fork in the face stupid sufficient or must one be super dense, black hole, singularity-type stupid?

3. "In Australia (or England, Sweden, insert your favorite country to hate here) crime went UP after guns were banned!"

This one is double dumb. First off, it's simply not true, which is why not one of these nuts can provide any kind of citation to any such thing. Second, none of the favorite gun nut target countries banned guns.

4. "Chicago!(or NYC, LA, Detroit, etc.)

Gun nuts are too ignorant to know bringing up Chicago disproves their own argument. The fact is Chicago banned hand guns in 1982. Beginning in 1983 and continuing for 28 years, the murder rate trended consistently down, falling every year except 2.

In 2010 the Supreme Court overturned Chicago's ban. Once again cheap hand guns were easy to come by. Guess what happened? The murder rate skyrocketed.

As to comparing large states with large urban areas to empty rural states, what, are you gun nuts really THAT bleeping stupid?

5. "Mexico has strict gun laws and it's still flooded with drug gangs using illegal guns!"

Good point! Yes, Mexico is suffering terrible problems at the hand of drug cartels. Drug cartels that supply the American market using guns they bought legally in Texas, then smuggled into Mexico. IOW, our taste for drugs and our gun culture are in large part responsible for Mexico's troubles.

6. "Cars kill more people than guns!"

They do, which is why we require drivers to be licensed, which requires passing proficiency tests every few years. We require all vehicles to be registered with the state and pass inspections at regular intervals. We require liability insurance. We tax all vehicle sales, retail and private. By all means, yes, let's treat guns just like we treat cars.

7. "Hitler disarmed the Jews. If the Jews had guns, there would have been no holocaust!"

Yes, Hitler disarmed German Jews in 1938, long after the Nazis had consolidated total power and long after they had subjugated German Jews, taking not just their guns, but their citizenship, businesses, livelihoods homes, possessions...

Not to mention, Jews in Warsaw, Paris, Prague, etc., were not banned from owning guns until after Hitler had conquered their nations. Six million died. Fat lot of good their guns did them against the Nazi war machine.

8. "Criminals don't obey the law, so gun laws won't work!"

Following this toy train of logic to its inevitable flaming wreck, because some people will break the law, we shouldn't have any laws at all.

9. "You can't stop every tragedy!"

No, you can't, but it's stupid to argue that since we can't stop all tragedies we shouldn't try to stop any. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

10. "Banning weapons won't work!"
Learn to read. Nobody has suggested any such thing. Stop listening to those voices in your head.
11. "Israel and Switzerland have lots of guns and low crime rates!"
Both Israel and Switzerland have extremely strict gun laws, duh. Thanks ever so much for proving my point that gun control, does, indeed, reduce violent crime.
12. "The assault weapons ban didn't work!"

Nonsense. The rate of mass shooting during the ban was MUCH lower than before or after.-- http://everythingpossiblehappens.blogspot.com...

Show me some evidence mass shootings were MUCH lower during the ban? Fact is you cant because it is a lie. I posted the DOJ and a Penn study as sources, you post some wackos "blog". LOL Most of the other crap you posted is complete BS also. Can always tell when someone doesnt have a leg to stand on, they resort to lies and posting links to radical "blogs" and call it the truth.

A 2004 critical review of research on firearms by a National Research Council panel also noted that academic studies of the assault weapon ban "did not reveal any clear impacts on gun violence" and noted "due to the fact that the relative rarity with which the banned guns were used in crime before the ban ... the maximum potential effect of the ban on gun violence outcomes would be very small...."
In 2004, a research report submitted to the United States Department of Justice and the National Institute of Justice found that should the ban be renewed, its effects on gun violence would likely be small, and perhaps too small for reliable measurement, because rifles in general, including rifles referred to as "assault rifles" or "assault weapons", are rarely used in gun crimes. That study by Christopher S. Koper, Daniel J. Woods, and Jeffrey A. Roth of the Jerry Lee Center of Criminology, University of Pennsylvania found no statistically significant evidence that either the assault weapons ban or the ban on magazines holding more than 10 rounds had reduced gun murders.
See, actual sources with evidence, not some weirdos blog. LOL

It isn't going to happen. We live in a new era. People 35 and younger think differently than the older population. Also, the Hitler stuff is complete nonsense. I couldn't say it any better than Alex Seitz-Wald from salon.org . http://www.salon.com/2013/01/11/stop_talking_... Maybe it's generational. I hope we can get a lot done in the next 12 years. Obama's second term and Biden's two terms as well. Republicans are going the way of the Whigs. I'm Native American as well. So let's not be too mean to one another.
This country is still governed by the authority of the US Constitution, regardless of what you pansy a$$ commies want. What part of shall not be infringed dont you understand? Cars may play a vital role in daily life, but boats, ATV's, swimming pools, and jet skis dont. They are also not Constitutionally protected, but yet we still have them. Banning them all would save thousands of lives, but I dont hear the rally to outlaw them. Could that be because this is America, not China, were we are a free country? We dont need some commie nancy pants telling us what we can eat, read, drive, watch. It already appears the ban will fail. Glad there are still freedom loving Americans who respect the Constitution still left among our politicians. God Bless America!

yeah, his death is what sparked their action, they're threatening to release confidential government documents and emails, unless federal prosecution policy is changed.

there are a lot more hacktivists being charged the same as he was. this is being called operation last resort.

okay, the way i think we can help is to admit that we use products everyday that is a result of slave labor. We are responsible. and we can't rely on an organization the end the problem, we as collective consumers must demand change.

corporations in the USA use factories in developing countries for slave labor because it generates more profit. we are buying their products, thereby contributing to the problem. what can we do? >stop consuming from those corporations!!<<

which is almost everything we buy. unavoidable right? yeah, so the best we can do is when we put our clothes on in the morning, remember where it came from. start discussing this issue with other people, bring it to light, make them conscious to the fact that they are wearing the fingerprints of Indian children (one example of many)

what is the ultimate solution? i don't know...except to either bring down the corporations or force them to change their ways by stifling their profit, but this will only be done when everyone is awake.

do you have any ideas?
