Over the sound of freedom
Oh yeah? Well free healthcare. On a serious note though, most of us don't want legal firearms. I've never heard anyone complain about it.
@Sniper of Puns, your name does not match up...
@Dyslexic Unicorn, I never said my gun was legal.
@Sniper of Puns, woooo free health care and also beer that doesnt taste like water wooo
@Sniper of Puns, You don't like pun makers that fight back.
@PVT Donut, wooooo taxes out the ass and beer that would taste the same if we weren't suck fcking arrogant that it literally alters our senses! *FTFY*
@Captain Swordsman, i cant tell whether your an american or British
@PVT Donut, I was born biologically American but I'm a nation-fluid who prefers to identify as British-Japanese with a Mexican headmatr. My preferred pronouns are boku, chav, and Él.
@Sniper of Puns, Free healthcare isn't free, it's just another tax that forces you to pay for other people's healthcare.
@Captain Swordsman, well then
@Sniper of Puns, your healthcare isn't really free, it's paid for through taxes.
@Sniper of Puns, Your healthcare is NOT free, you have ridiculously high taxes
@CriTiKa1, yes, but if I'm honest, I don't mind paying for health care, because it means if I or my friends or family fall ill, we'll be looked after even if we don have a lot of money. And if we don't get sick it still stops people who lie here dying so #WURF
@Tom Bombadil, live here dying srry
@Tom Bombadil, It works for poor people, but people in the middle and higher class end up having to pull the weight of the lower class. I prefer paying for my and my family's healthcare than being forced to pay for someone else's.
@CriTiKa1, you dont pay for someone elses it goes towards paying for everyone including yourself
@PVT Donut, Exactly, but if you don't have many health problems, most of the money you pay ends up paying for other's hospital bills. Like I said, it works great for poor people and people with pre-existing health problems, but the rest of the population has to pull their weight. I would rather pay for myself and my family than pay an extra tax for other people.
@Sniper of Puns, Also torrenting with no fear
@Sniper of Puns, nah you just have terrorists that decapitate with machetes. I'm sure it's fine since that's the kid of cruel punishments they served at the Tower of London.
It's not filtered, there was a plan that it would be but then it wasn't.
Think about it the way I think about it. If you are a robber, would you rather rob a defenseless man's house, or a man who has a gun's house?
@Guy With Xray Vision, think about it like this if you're desperate enough will you care as long as you can put food on your family's table?
@Shaygirgenti, but if you rob an armed man's house, you could lose that chance in the future to put food on your family's table.
@Shaygirgenti, yes you will care because one of the ways to put food on the table is to not die. Also no American robbers steal because they're poor. They steal because they're degenerate.
@WilfredMott, you know nothing of impoverished people sir
@Guy With Xray Vision, hegemony doesn't solve for war it perpetuate it as one can see with the US after isolationism was abandoned
@Shaygirgenti, don't tell me what I know and don't know about poverty, you brat. I've seen it all from the slums of Calcutta to the ghettos of Los Angeles. There is a marked difference between poverty in western nations and eastern ones. Western poverty comes from idleness or a bankruptcy of character that is easy to see
@Shaygirgenti, this want of character is easy to see in your black communities or " white trash" communities as well, where idleness and fatherlessness runs rampant.
@Guy With Xray Vision, think about it this way. Are your insurered valuables worth the highest gun death rate in the first world among both adults and children?
@WilfredMott, you sound like you're in high school.
@Shaygirgenti, don't make them sound noble, many steal for drug money, and if someone breaks into my house they won't be walking out.
@CrazyRightWinger, why r we one of the only western countries left that still treat drug addicts like lepers were once treated? Why don't we treat them public health issues like almost all of Europe does? Why do we act like drug addiction is a way to judge character? It's horrible
@Shaygirgenti, drug addicts deserve to be treated but ones that commit crimes sometimes violent to get their fix put themselves in the position to get hurt by someone who has the right to defend their family from an intruder
@hollow114, who said that robber doesn't have intent to kill too. Even without that intent, if he feels threatened, he could pull the trigger on the defenseless man.
@Shaygirgenti, it is a way to judge character. If they made the poor decision to try that drug and became addicted to it, even if they want to stop, they made that decision. It shows they don't have enough self control to stop them from it.
@Guy With Xray Vision, so lack of self control means we should abandon them to the wolves? Also who's to say that they knew the full consequences? I know people who are in good neighborhoods and still don't realize how bad it is. Imagine high school drop gang member who is introduced early on? No idea it's really that bad but all he knows is tht it makes the pain go away... We should abandon everyone then hu????? Selfish bastard
@Shaygirgenti, who said we were abandoning them to the wolves? It seems to be common sense to know that drugs can ruin your life, and there are plenty of examples of that.
@Guy With Xray Vision, do you know what white privilege is?
@Shaygirgenti, how does white privilege relate to this? We had no mentions on race in this discussion.
@Guy With Xray Vision, white privialage isn't just race based. The fact you don't realize the relevance of the issue is the problem itself. Look it up then come talk to me goodnight
@Guy With Xray Vision, because statistics, numbers do not lie.
Guns are for the government to fear their people. So they cannot become a dictatorship. (or filter our porn)
@Jaykub, then stop increasing our military bcz even if we had unlimited access to guns and wanted to have a revolution our gov would kill everyone of us without a problem
@Shaygirgenti, I am so glad our founding fathers didn't feel that way
@Shaygirgenti, You do realize that soldiers aren't just mindless zombies right? Most of them wouldn't kill civilians if they were ordered to.
@Jaykub, the advancement gap between the British and colonists was smaller than the modern day military and potential revolutionaries. Today the American revolution would be impossible against a real world power. They would be crushed in an instant
@CriTiKa1, drones are though
@Shaygirgenti, And the most of the people who control drones aren't.
@CriTiKa1, they attack Pakistani and middle eastern civilians all the time. Do you know how many people in the Middle East fear the sound of a drone? How there is a family protesting agains the us government for killing a bunch of their family bcz they thought they were terrorists? And that they represent all the families being destroyed by our military? Our military is the bane of the world and no one realizes that and they won't until we can't do anything about it
@Shaygirgenti, They willingly kill people on the other side of the planet, but if they're told to use their drones to target their home city, I can assure you they wouldn't do it.
Seriously, how the hell did this get accepted to be in the app?
We don't want to have school shootings but thanks...
@Raedee, don't you find it ironic that schools ban guns and get shot up, but gun shops and police stations don't?
@DarthPanserbjorn, They can be, it just doesn't turn out as well. People also like to ignore the fact that England has a higher crime rate.
@ archiethesailor, one, it would England has a higher violent crime rate, but the UK defines violent crime differently than the US causing a larger group of people to be considered "violent criminals." But America has a higher homicide rate as well as a higher amount of gun deaths (4.7% percent of Americans are murdered compared to 1% of Brits).
@Rick Grimes, Of course we have more gun deaths, we have more guns. A lot of our gun deaths are suicides though, not murder. The fact is, we have more guns and less violence.
@ archiethesailor, I believe I said murder via gun, not suicide. So if you feel like bumping up the number I gave by all means be my guest. I find it funny how countries that ban guns find themselves having less shootings. Interesting statistic don't you think?
@Rick Grimes, You said murder, but when reading statistics, they often only say deaths, mixing murder and suicide. I think it's funny how countries that ban guns have more crimes of other types, and still haven't completely gotten rid of gun crimes.
@Raedee, yes because guns shoot up the school
@ archiethesailor, the UK banned
guns, but the death rate with hammers went up 150%. It doesn't matter if you take away guns or not. If the bad guy wants a gun, he won't care if you don't like guns. He also won't care if their not allowed. He will do what he can to do what he wants. (Explosives, guns, blunt weapons, chemicals, ect.)
@DarthPanserbjorn, not really no. There aren't kids that make up the majority of the population at a police station or gun shop. Think about it like this: theres a prison, we don't give everyone a knife to stop brawls we try to make sure no one has it. Sure some people get shivs illegally but the number of stabbings go down with the number of knives
@Shaygirgenti, thats not a totally fair statement, prison is where the mass majority are people with a high chance of violence are. Outside of prison, where none prisoners are, the mass majority is not of high chance for violence.
@The Lone Guppy, that's not true at all. Violence isn't partial. The majority of our population seems to think killin Isis is the only way to solve the Middle East issue. We just have to blow up enough people the problem goes away. Guns don't solves problems they make them. Here's a global example if u don't like the prison one: hegemony (what people unknowingly suggest when they say give everyone a gun) has been what we have used as a way to "stop" war. The fear that well nuke their ass if they attack us. Yet there is still war there is still violence within and outside our country and directed towards and against us. Guns don't solve problems they make them
@Shaygirgenti, the nuke thing has worked very well against major powers, thats why there has only been cold wars, we have had wars with lesser sized militaries, and governments. Also, have you heard of silent majority, just because you read on facebook or twitter or whatever all of the loud mouth uneducated people ranting about killing anything that doesnt agree with them doesnt mean thats what everyone thinks. Look at a true vote poll before saying that. Also something funny. Those Americans that are so anti muslim and stuff because they fear muslims are anti american, are actually going against one of the U.S' s biggest allowences which is freedom of religion. Sorry for the added muslim thing but the facebook bring up of that reminded me of what I read alot on social media. Just remember only idiots promote violence. MOST gun owners ARE educated on guns, and simply use them to prevent violence. They use them only if needed. But also know pulling out a gun is a strong enough deterant
@Fun Facts 101, Thank you for the statistic, I forgot that I need to use those in debates, and for supporting what I said.
@Shaygirgenti, firstly, you make a fair point regarding schools, but malls are still attractive shooting locations as well as busy stores. And most schools in shootings ate colleges and high-schools. Secondly. That model only works if you assume everyone in the general population is comparable to an inmate. If y made 90%of those people honest (as far as the average person is) and reasonable people, the situation would change drastically.
@funny pic veteran, it's hard to "shoot up" a school without a gun!
@ archiethesailor, rubbish
Lot of butt hurt liberals on today...
@TheAntiHistorian, more empty headed conservative nuts if u ask me lol
@TheAntiHistorian, Shots fired? Not in Britain, of course. . .
Men, women, fellow spectators of the FunnyPics community. It pains me to see how parted we are in the midst of this picture. Let it be I, The Ministry of Truth, who beith the one to say, that any porn is good porn, so long as it does not involve a Kardashian. Also that guns are a positive thing when getting your well deserved refund from a hooker in Grand Theft Auto. Let us rejoice in the glory of these two things. While not in the same aspect, at least on GTA and kardashian-less porn.
Guns and porn don't mix. Trust me, I have experience.
@MIster Wonderful, Unless they're dildo guns.
@ archiethesailor, pew pew pew!
@MIster Wonderful, Let me open your eyes to gunporn.... and latex
@MIster Wonderful, that's a whole 'nother type of shooting 'pardner
What was that? Could hear you over our free healthcare, free education, lower deaths, less gun crimes and the birth of rock n' roll.
@Luciferthefalln1, *CAUGH* cant compare statistics from a small country to a big one *CAUGH* The rock part... I' not sure about... although I do like them British bands...
@The Lone Guppy, ozzy ozbourne, led zeppelin, Beatles, all British
Move along. Nothing to see here but a debate in the comments section.
Maybe you would be able to hear if you had free healthcare
Don't forget about our billions of dollars in debt. Beat that Britain!
@Konata chan, Trillions* haha
Trust me, our porn isn't filtered. David Cameron was trying filter child porn instead of real porn which you can understand, he's a bit more focused on, yano, ISIS, Ebola and the fact that Britain's terror attack warning is 'severe' so yeah.
'Merica! Guns and porn!
Anyone else tired of the annoying hipster independent posts? We get it stuckpixel you vote republican
As if legal firearms is a good thing....
Legal firearms doesn't really seem like a good thing tbh
Annndddd this is why Americans hate Americans, because some gloat to much.
Im getting sick of American stereotypes. Their either mean and disrespectful, or the good ones make us sound like fat idiots.
But how would you know they were armed? And why rob a house when people are home anyway?
Maybe the Brit government is worried about losing even more f there land to the people
Porn is not filtered in the UK... It was discussed but isn't happening.
What? We can't hear you over your high crime rate, maybe you should limit the guns you guys can get, might drop your shootings.
I'm sorry Americans I can't here you over Obama when we call, let me know when the NSA stop interrupting us
