Boo boo just use an Easter egg.
Well you see sweety that's because it's not a constitutional right for you to have your little chocolate covered plastics.
@Fun Facts 101, it should be though, those eggs are the best.
@YUNoJump, you right
@Fun Facts 101, I just never got this. So what? We should have things because they’re right not because some guys thought to write it down a couple hundred years ago.
@Dragoon0106, yeah, just some guys that experienced first hand tyranny, fought in a war for independence, and created rights for citizens in order to try to prevent such a thing from ever happening again. But you right. Just some doods who really liked muskets
@Fun Facts 101, I mean that’s not what I think or say but they also owned other people so is it that hard to think maybe they got it wrong? Honestly how I feel about firearms is still evolving and I think there are important arguments for them, the biggest is well we already have like 400 million of them what are you going to do now? But I don’t think that “it got written down” is a good reason.
@Dragoon0106, are you saying that because our founding fathers owned slaves that could make the constitutional right to own firearms obsolete? Do you think they got the first amendment wrong as well? I mean, they must be horrible people. They owned people and stuff.
@Fun Facts 101, no, I’m saying they aren’t infallible. I think they probably got more right than wrong but an argument to authority, “they said it so it must be right” doesn’t seem to hold a lot of water when they also owned other humans beings. I think they were mostly smart, educated, white men of their time and did pretty well for that.
@Dragoon0106, it's not a matter of "they said it so it must be right". It's a matter of an entire group of people who in the midst of a war with themselves, after moving and creating an entirely new country, committing treason, and dying for their newfound land decided to create a set of rights for the people who lived in their country so that no one would ever have to go through that again. Do you know why they have the second amendment in the constitution? Or why they want small government? It's because the more powerful your government, the less control the people have. And the less armed the people are, the less they can defend against a government that no longer cares about what the people want. Self defense for yourself, your family, your country.
@Fun Facts 101, I understand and like I said, I think there are valid arguments for gun ownership although I don’t think the negatives are outweighed by the positives for me. My worry about being attacked or my government coming after me and my being able to defend myself against this are next to nil. Maybe if I was born into different circumstances I’d have a different perspective and I’d make a different choice but I choose not to feed into what I see as a cultural issue in my country. I am much more scared of gun owners than I want to join them. The original comment however says you can get a gun because it’s in the bill of rights and that has always struck me as a lazy and idiotic argument. It’s in the bill of rights for a reason and that is what you should be arguing.
@Dragoon0106, here's the thing, if you think the 2nd Amendment can be done away with, what's stopping the 1st Amendment from being written away? The reason why the 2nd Amendment is even a thing is because our founding fathers literally fought a war to have the freedom they so desired and to keep that freedom realized that letting citizens arm themselves and the government not having the ability to take them away was essential. What's the first thing the Nazis did? Started banning weapons. How about North Korea? Or Venezuela? Or the USSR? Or China? The first thing a tyrant does is disarm the populace. Read. A. Book.
@MakeMemesGreatAgain, my god I don’t want to do away with anything and I have read many books, maybe not as many as you but plenty. I think that guns are a tool like any other. A tool designed to kill people as easily as possible but still a tool. My issue with guns in America right now is twofold. A lack of accountability and safety by gun manufacturers, retailers, and owners as well as a cultural issue that is unique to our country that seems to propagate that a man with a gun can solve any problem. I’d talk about it more with y’all if you want to have a conversation but I’m an economist and I know I don’t have all the answers.
@Dragoon0106, if you're scared of gun owners, read a book. Almost 80% of gun related deaths are suicides, and the rest are split between self defense, and homicide. But here's the kicker. Homicides, 99% own illegal firearms. We don't live on an island like England where banning guns could work (look at their terrorism rate.) Maybe we should just make murder illegal? Obviously a criminal has the moral mindset to follow laws, and won't use guns, or bombs, or even just a van. 240 gun deaths per year vs 180 thousand drunk driving deaths? Why aren't you more afraid of vehicles?
@Fun Facts 101, damn you’re the second dude to tell me to read more. I promise I read plenty. I’m not advocating banning guns and I do think it’s possible we’ve come to far down this slippery slope to turn back. I just came back from Norway which has pretty lax gun laws. Same for Switzerland or Israel and a bunch of other nations which have almost the same percent of gun owners as us. They don’t have close to the issue we have because they have a different cultural outlook. Guns are a tool for a purpose. Not something to dick around with or collect for fun and they have no illusions about what they can do with a gun. We however seem to have a lot of problems around gun violence. My issue is that up to this point, something that is changing with technology, illegal guns and legal guns all come from the same place. Unlike let’s say illegal drugs, illegal guns were once manufactured as legal guns then somewhere someone messed up and they got into the wrong hands so I don’t care much.
@Fun Facts 101, for the legal vs. illegal argument. A legal gun is only a step away from being illegal and an illegal gun just took one extra step from being legal. My issue is that step and the fact that we have a culture that makes people think this is the answer.
@Dragoon0106, If you have never tried to buy a gun then you have no inclination of what it endures. There is no gunshow loophole, you cannot just walk in to a store and buy one all willy-nilly either. Not to mention, most guns used in crimes aren't even registered to said person, so either it's stolen or someone wasn't following the law in the first place. I encourage you to see try and buy a gun and see all the information they ask you, even if you just return it right away, you'll see it's not as easy as you think. There's more guns than people in the US and there are 12 people killed for every 100,000, that's not a lot especially when you account that about 7 of those 12 are suicide or accidental deaths. Not to mention actual homicide with guns has been steadily decreasing since the 70s. Statistics don't mesh with your logic.
@MakeMemesGreatAgain, hey imma apologize right now because I’m talking to two people here and I might get the two discussions intertwined. I honestly don’t have an issue with people buying guns. You pass a cursory background check and I’m good, I don’t think we really need to change that. I think we do pretty well here. Like you said, most guns used in crimes are illegal. So I want to know, where do those guns come from? I want to stop legal guns from becoming illegal guns.
@Dragoon0106, Most guns like that are stolen or what they call "dead man's" meaning the owner died and the registration was never transferred. Then there's the guns coming over from Mexico, you may recall Fast and Furious a few years back. That was the Fed's seeing if they could track it and it blew up in their face.
@MakeMemesGreatAgain, I do remember. And I think there needs to be more responsibility here to ensure that these guns don’t get into the wrong hands. We produce a huge number of guns and we can control it.
@Dragoon0106, by enforcing the laws on the books would be a start. Do you know who is in charge of the ATF? I'll answer, there hasn't been one since 2015. As well, because of the last administrations policies, the ATF budget had I believe been cut to a third of what was in the 90s. And that's with more weapons showing up in the marketplace, whether legal or not. There's I believe around 2200 laws on the books that a little over 5000 people are supposed to enforce for 330 million people. If you want to start somewhere, streamline redundant and out dated laws and give more resources to law enforcement.
@Fun Facts 101, I love watching when someone tries to be a smartaśś and gets owned lol
@Dragoon0106, yeah, I agree with you, books don't make you smart. You could be reading a princess fairyland storybook, but it would still count, but not help you understand or change your view on political topics
@I Love Boost, he got so owned that he has the best upvotes to downvote ratio
@bigbrownbeaver, because that means absolutely everything. But then again, in a safe space, support is everything.
@I Love Boost, here in funny pics that is everything d@mnit
@bigbrownbeaver, I’ll be damned I stand corrected. Sorry sir. As you were.
@Fun Facts 101, actually kinder eggs are illegal in America anymore.
Pro Tip: Put a Kinder egg on your AR-15 and say it's an attachment.
@Funny Pics Janitor, BUT THEN ITS ILLEGAL
People think "semi-automatic" is SOOO scary, but they don't realize that's what handguns are, and essentially double action revolvers as well. Also, AR15s are not the only semi-auto rifles, there are plenty of "hunting" rifles, sporting rifles, and even shotguns. Many people believe that semi=full, but they don't realize how hard it is to get a full auto, and they are certainly not sold at Wal-Mart.
They are no longer illegal in the U.S.
@Megahut, so I was reading and technically, Kinder Suprise Eggs are illegal in the us, but they released an FDA compliant one called Kinder Joy, which has the toy seperated from the chocolate.
I’ve seen them in stores here in the US.
In all honesty that's hilarious
I live in utah, I see kinder eggs all the time.
@Animalium, i thought they were illegal until i saw them at a walmart recently...
You can buy both at my local Walmart’s.
Illegal because it's not a great idea to put something you can choke on in children's candy
@Frodrevo, do you know how big the yellow thins is
If a kid chokes on it his face is 90%mouth
@Donutfilm, that’s why the parents should just break the thing in two and take it out, so even if the kid has more mouth than face, it’s all good
@Frodrevo, the two chocolate sides of the egg aren't connected anymore. But even if they were it would be like impossible to choke on them lol.
@Frodrevo, Honestly, if the kid chokes on the capsule, That's entirely the Kids fault. I mean, to accidentaly choke on it the kid must've put the entire egg in his mouth and tried to swallow it.
@Frodrevo, no, actually Kinder Surprise eggs themselves were never banned by name, instead a law was passed during World War II that made it illegal to put non edible things inside of edible foods in the US, and when Kinder Surprise eggs were first invented a few decades after that they happen to be affected by the earlier blanket then law that had never been repealed
I mean.. you could.. but I feel like most things would make a more convenient container
