@Shzeah, is that a pun? I think it was a pun. I like you.
Guns are great, want to put up an argument, do it
@Omicron Persei 8, guns are horrible, killing is horrible... But unfortunately a necessary measure.
@KiritoSAOHero, Guns are a hobby of mine. Taking them apart, cleaning them, putting them back together. Target shooting is fun. Figuring out how each one works is reminiscent of building with legoes as a kid. Yes, they're dangerous, but so is skydiving and rugby. I was trained to treat them with respect and never use them for anything other than self-defense or practice.
@KiritoSAOHero, ok man, you are in a post hurricane area, no cops or any one to protect you or your family, a street gang of 10 people come to your camp, to take your food, harm your family. If you have a nice old AR15 you can take out every one of those a holes, if you didnt have a gun, you are dead, your kids food taken, wife kid napped to be used a a sex slave. That is one of many things that can happen. Sorry for the crappy grammar, but my point needed to get across
@Omicron Persei 8, that's why he said they're a necessary measure
@SimonPetrikov, I think it's ok to have a gun hobby. I myself have an old Winchester rifle from 1902 that my grandpa left me. All I'm saying is that the world would be better off without guns. There are a lot of good responsible people who can handle a gun including the police and a lot of regular citizens but there are crazy people as well, and if we had the option to get rid of guns altogether then it would save a lot of lives. I'm a liberal but I'm not someone that says we shouldn't have guns. Obviously since they have already been invented, we have them, and even if we stopped using them that doesn't mean crazy people would. But if there were no guns to begin with there would be no problem, yes there would still be crazy people, but a crazy person without a gun is a lot easier to handle than a crazy person with a gun. So in conclusion guns themselves might not kill but they play a large factor. Even though I think they are bad, they are a necessary part of our modern society.
@Omicron Persei 8, I tried to shoot myself once. Little did I know my dad switched his ammo for blanks. That wasn't a great thing
@KiritoSAOHero, We'd kill each other just fine without guns. Mass murder had been committed in the past, just at a closer range.
@Omicron Persei 8, Jesus Christ, I really hope you don't breed. Everybody gun nut says they'll use theirs to protect their family and such. But what makes you so badass? YOU'RE going to take out a group of 10 people on your own? This isn't cod and you're not Rambo. Calm down. Guns serve a purpose (unfortunately) but they don't suddenly turn everyone carrying them into the invincible protagonist of a cheesy action film.
@SimonPetrikov, I get that but as I said with guns the murder rate goes up exponentially. Guns don't kill people, people kill people but with guns people kill more people. People can wright with charcoal but if you give people pencils a lot more are going to wright.
@KiritoSAOHero, That is actually a good point
If you actually believe this comic you are stupider than the guy who made it.
@Murican Eagle, I wad hoping this was satire of pro-gun controllers, but sadly, the maker of this comic is really that stupid. Pretty sure you have to pass a bazhillion background checks before you can own an AR.
@Murican Eagle, The irony of your comment due to, "stupider," being a commonly used but nonstandardized word...
@The Defenestrator, if Yolo and swag are words in the dictionary, then stupider is most definitely a word you unfortunate piece of avocado.
@Murican Eagle, Thanks for ruining my faith in humanity and reminding me that the two abhorred acronyms you cited are actually recognized.
@CaptainSwordsman, really depends on the state. States like California make it harder to buy AR'S while in some states you can walk into a store and walk out with one.
@Murican Eagle, But your initial observation was indeed far from stupid... I would own a tank if I could.
@The Defenestrator, sorry but it needed to be done.
@Murican Eagle, i am strongly pro weapon (of any type) but don't want to waste time on people who don't want to hear it... so I'd you're interested in my argument, ask me to share it
@Murican Eagle, or, OR he was making a joke and you're getting butthurt over nothing, but then again with a username like that I guess that's hardly surprising...
@Murican Eagle, I think the us is stupid to let everyone carry guns. just sharing my thoughts
@The Antagonist, I doubt the cartoonist was making a joke, and I'm not butt hurt. It just rustles my jimmy's when people actually believe that gun owners are like this.
@Just a raccoon, not everyone is allowed. There are restriction based on age, criminal background, and mental stability, as there should be. However the average man should be allowed to own a firearm. If I put a gun in your hands, I doubt you would just start shooting people.
@Murican Eagle, amen brother
@Murican Eagle, well, it's meant to just be a joke. No one said it's right or if it's wrong. Personally, i think it's hilarious :)
@PlayRenegadeX, I want to hear your argument, right meow!
@Not important, It's a political cartoon, political debates in the comments was inevitable.
@Murican Eagle, not at gun shows, a felon can acquire a gun there. Or private sale..
@Fistdeepinu , in that case... the place where shootings usually occur and are successful are places where there are a large number of people but weapons are banned. This includes schools, malls, banks, etc. Most firearms used in these attempts are acquired illegally (taking your parents within without their knowledge is illegal). Most places that are heavily armed are never heard of being shot up, police stations, fun shops, courts, shooting ranges, etc. Because they're stopped by a "hero" with a weapon in most cases. And an insignificant number of murders happen one on one on the streets. it's usually it off sight, in lately populated areas, our at night. This being said, unless you think a police unit should be stationed in every home, the safest option is to allow those with proficiency with weapons to maintain them
@PlayRenegadeX, "Fun shops"? What are fun shops? That sounds fun, I want to go to one of these establishments! No but seriously, well said.
@Cat Lauer , lol, autocomplete... gun shops
@PlayRenegadeX, lol, I gotcha.
@CriTiKa1, that may be, but there's no reason for people to get so worked up. Again, just a cartoon -_-
@Gnarzz, simply not true about the gun shows, all federal rules still apply for sellers. However, you are right about person to person sales and it is unrealistic to think you can keep a felon from buying a gun by having people register a gun in a person to person sale because they simply would skip whatever new requirement you would put in place
@Murican Eagle, here in canada, quebec guns are not needed. we have less criminal rate, less murder rate. Average people can be tempted to use a gun on someone that cheated with their wife. acciedents can happen too. I heard kids killing their sister in the US. I heard rampages in schools. This doesn't happen in other countries. And it is even more difficult for a "wanna be gangsta kid" to use a gun if it is illegal. Sorry for any grammatical error, im not english.
@Murican Eagle, "There are restriction based on age, criminal background, and mental stability, as there should be." That is literally the sanest thing Ive ever heard a gun enthusiast on the subject. And what most people don't bother to realize, is that simple, perfectly reasonable rules against giving unrestricted access to criminals and the insane, are ultimately all that most "gun control people" are really after. The problem is when a vocal majority of nutcases immediately write off even those baseline rules as tyrannical, and cause an epic political mess over it.
@Urist McDorfforter, I try not to be a nut about things and see both sides of the argument before I make my decision. Not everyone is responsible enough to own a firearm, but I feel that most people are.
@CaptainSwordsman, you pass the same background check that you have to take for any firearm. There's nothing special to go through to buy one
@Peeta Griffin, you need a class 1 FFL, so yeah, there is something special you have to go through to get one.
@CaptainSwordsman, to buy an ar-15? No. You can walk into Wal mart or Academy or a gun store or whatever you want and buy one if you're 18 or older. FFLs are only to sell firearms commercially. I have bought an AR-15 so I kinda know how it goes
@Peeta Griffin, well apparently you need one to buy one online at least.
@CaptainSwordsman, in what country? In America they ship it to the nearest FFL dealer and the dealer runs the background check and gives it to you
@Peeta Griffin, I'm in America and the website I was on allowed you to customize an AR-15 and have it shipped to you and it said I needed a class 1 FFL to buy it. Oh btw I'm American too so yeah, asking me what country I'm in and sayig how it is "in America" isn't going to change anything.
@CaptainSwordsman, I just wasn't sure where you lived.. Wasn't trying to change anything.. But it said you need an FFL because you have to have one to directly buy and ship it to you. You can buy it online and order it to a dealer with an FFL but you don't actually need it to get one online and definitely don't in a store
@Peeta Griffin, I see. That makes sense.
Ah yes, because when firearms are illegal, bad guys don't get them either.
The logic of this picture is...nonexistent...
@Emc2, when you can make a shotgun out of two pieces of pipe, a screw and an cap for one of the pipe pieces, firearms will never be out of criminal hands.
@Emc2, liberal logic takes place in this pick
@Emc2, I understand that most Americans don't beleive that making guns illegal will reduce the number of issues with them, but living in Australia with tough gun laws I can tell you it does "bad guys" still have access to guns but mentally unstable people don't. Plus because they're highly illegal the "bad guys" can't practice shooting so they can't hit the broad side of a barn. As with homemade guns they're also highly illegal so after you blow your hand off you'll go to jail for having one... also just out of interest tasers are also considered firearms.
@Emc2, your logic expects that everyone bad who wants a gun will have the means and knowledge to go do so. Your logic isn't sound either.
@Im a cop, actually no most liberals agree that people should be able to own firearms. With that being said there really is no need to carry an ak-47 or ar 15 around with you everywhere. If someone wants to carry protection with them a pistol will suffice. Seriously if you can't hit your target with a standard clip that comes with a pistol, which is generally between 10 to 20 rounds depending on the caliber, you shouldn't have a gun in the first place. Most liberals think that we need more sensible gun laws. Not to ban all guns. Who ever created this was a moron. They may be a liberal but they are in the same category as the conservatives that think the US should only have a white President.
DayZ in a nutshell.
The one who knocks wants to know
@Appa, The comments on this pic make me sad. I thought I had more in common with the funny pics community.

This is so stupid I don't even...
Am I missing something here? Why does everyone think this comic is being serious? I'm assuming it is satirical.
I love how his pistol is shooting out of the back of the chamber
@Mailman, it's a perfect example of how gun control activists know NOTHING about the tools they're trying to make illegal. Like how I'm pretty sure more than 50% of America doesn't know that an AR-15 is not an assault weapon. Assault weapons are fully automatic or burst fire, but the liberals will call an M1911 an "assault weapon"
@Uncle Nipple, In a way i agree with you. I don't really like guns, but then again, i don't know much of anything about them, so i can't say much. But what i think America is trying to do is merely ban the extremely dangerous ones, and there's nothing wrong with having just a basic gun. I think people are just overreacting because they think all guns are going to be made illegal, when it's just a certain few.
@Not important, the guns they are trying to ban are no more deadly than any other gun. When handled incorrectly all firearms can kill you just as dead as any other. Most of the guns they want to ban they want to ban for arbitrary reason, like magazine size or simply how it looks.
I guess you could say I dont have a clever pun
@mrmcmo, Well don't shoot yourself, it's hard to bite the bullet!
@mrmcmo, y u do dis?
I run the risk of being downvoted, but I feel the urge to comment my thoughts. I am personally for gun control, but not the "take all the guns away" idea, but to possibly limit available firearms to handguns and shotguns. Another possibility is to limit the magazine size for the weapons. I am in no way an expert on the matter so if you would like to reply and give your own thoughts, ask questions, or inform me on something, please feel free.
@The Invisible Bro, really don't wanna start something so I'm gonna try to make it short. I am for no gun laws for a simple reason. Criminals aren't going to obey laws. All gun control and background checks do is limit good guys from protecting themselves. That's what it all boils down to is that all the laws politicians make aren't going to stop criminals, so don't infringe on my God given right affirmed by the Constitution.
@Peeta Griffin, I'd like to start off with saying thank you for being polite about stating your side. I'll follow with your counter-argument is a very good one that I have yet to come up with a sensible solution for. My only counter to you is that I do believe that I am technically not infringing on your constitutional right since I am not completely taking it away (I'm also not well versed on constitutional law so I very well may be dead wrong so I do apologize if my statement is incorrect).
Why does Andy Parsons from Mock the Week pop up in the last frame?
Wow. The comments on this pic completely changes my view of funny pics community.....for the worse.
Is that Walter White in the last frame?
This is exactly how my family reunions turn out.
I'm all for our right to own guns, but getting over zealous and crazy about it like this is incredibly dangerous. It's a funnypic, but it makes a valid point and "everyone should carry guns around in order to enforce immediate vigilante justice" is NOT an exaggeration of some people's ideologies. Not all gun owners are crazy wannabe vigilantes, but those who are need to tone it the he|| down, because problems (read: murders) can and DO result from that mentality.
That's why we have training. So it becomes idiot proof. Not funny.
I am the one who shoots!
