Just because you remove the primary means of murder, doesn't mean the motivations of those people will disappear. They'll find alternatives, like acid attacks or some shjt.
@Proactive Citizenry , ask the brits about their knife problem
@Webbed Foot, to be honest that only seems to be an issue in the bigger cities here, smaller towns and cities it’s pretty rare actually (in my experience anyway)
@Proactive Citizenry , Before Columbine it was bombs. Then those fvckheads were made famous, and everyone switched to guns.
@Proactive Citizenry , ask the Swedes about their bomb/grenade problem
@Webbed Foot, I don't usually get myself involved in this but anyway. In my opinion, what happens in London is terrible (currently live there). It is a problem - however most attacks are singular attacks, and usually related to gang disputes, although not always. Unlikee the US gun problem, everyone here is pushing for solving this by making sure knives are not sold to anyone particularly minors, adverts of the dangers, and outreach officers running courses and checks and many other things such as more police in the worst areas. Gun violence seems to always have larger amounts of casualty and indiscriminate attacks, and in general are way more dangerous and non-multipurpose like kitchen knives are. Sure people should have the right to have a gun - if they are sane and safe to use one. Certainly "assault" weapons should be even harder but still possible to obtain
Anyway that's my piece
@Proactive Citizenry , ask the swedes about their grenade problem.
@Nosferatu Zodd, violent Crime in general isn’t very common in small towns.
@Homeless Gentleman, even in stares with strict gun laws, criminals and such still get illegal weapons.
The problem which needs to be dealt with is the mental illness and the evil inside those monsters.
Instead we have parents in denial about their children and a government which only cares about re-election instead of solving anything.
@Proactive Citizenry , humanity was killing each other across every populated continent long before gunpowder was a glimmer in anyone’s eye
@Nosferatu Zodd, gets stabbed.
@Gamasennin, its almost like the news ought to sensationalizing shooters, but those sweet ratings are too tempting, I guess.
@Proactive Citizenry , *not sensationalize
@Proactive Citizenry , not true it’s a proven fact that if u get rid of guns then ppl will not be angry and will not wanna murder anymore and I’m basing this off of what the government tells us cause we all know the government would never lie especially not to their own ppl
@Weird Porn Stash, probably cause most ppl all know eachother
@RogueKnight, u can make all the laws u want to make it harder to get guns legally but the reason it won’t affect gun related crimes is because all the ppl committing them aren’t buying their guns legally anyway so as long as criminals r gonna buy guns illegally these laws aren’t doing anything except making it harder for citizens that should have guns buy them legally
Remember all those school lancings back in the day?
Yea cause violence didn’t exist until guns were created lol
So true. There were 745 mass impalings in 19 AD, yet people act like guns are the problem....
