I knew this 55-gallon drum of popcorn would come in handy
@Sobosaurous , got any left?
Can we stop with these gun posts, all they do is make people fight in the comments and this isn't really for political agendas
@JoJoS, There’s also literally no joke in this picture. It doesn’t belong here. People need to take their lazy-ass circlejerking back to r/the_donald or r/worldpolitics.
@Weird Porn Stash, there is a joke but you have to know who I’m referencing in the title.
@ImNotRacistBut, I don’t think any of the commenters so far seem to know who you’re referencing
@ImNotRacistBut, Either benderama or liberachi. Still not a joke.
@Weird Porn Stash, nailed it. I like to call these posts “Ladles”. The joke would have been their responses but I haven’t seen them yet.
@ImNotRacistBut, so what? you did it to “own the libs”? awesome
@Hoban Washburne, no, it’s a very personal message to my arch nemesis.
Is an app called funny pics really a place to spread any sort of agenda? Like did anyones view actually change after seeing this?
@TheBigJ, this one's pretty blatant tbh. At least most others have some kinda joke to then rather than just a preachy message on a cute pingu.
@TheBigJ, Theres been a lot of this recently, actually longer than recently.
Whatever your side of the argument this really isn't the place to do this.
If you keep posting these things here then you need to post both sides of the argument or it just becomes a rant board for 1 view. But then if your forced to post the views from both sides then its not exactly a fun happy laugh meme app....
@Obsolete , i think thats gunther.
@TheBigJ, I love how people downvoted this not even knowing what side i’m for. Keep politics off funny pics jheez
@bonja, I see your point, but there is no other point of view on this. Guns are mostly good than bad. More guns more better? And education...
@meNoP, thats a view. Some people disagree with having guns at all. Also again I aint here to discuss it purely point out the whole point is we shouldnt be discussing it here
@Obsolete , that's Gunther you peasant
@TheBigJ, freedom isn’t an agenda
@ImNotRacistBut, of course freedom is an agenda. It’s a damn good one.
@meNoP, hey man that's a unsavory road you'll go down in life, you should allways think every topic has atleast 2 sides to it, itll keep you humble in realizing that the only thing your absolutely right about is that your wrong about something, likely most things, in some degree.
It also lets you play with ideas that you don't personally agree with.
License to buy--no
License to open carry--no
License to conceal carry--yes
When law makers insist on making it harder for good people to carry, all they do is hurt the good people.
Evil will always NOT follow the law.
@ericthegreat, u have no idea what you’re talking about I know at least a dozen ppl that said they really wanted to commit a mass shooting but the only reason they couldn’t is because it’s so hard to legally purchase guns (in case u didn’t realize and I really hope u did but that’s obviously a joke just like these laws r if you’re gonna murder a lot of ppl the least of your worries is a gun charge)
@sgc6610, less restrictive laws the better. Sounds like someone else doesn't understand things.
@ericthegreat, yea that’s exactly what I’m sayin bum assuming that u and all of the ppl that downvoted me didn’t realize it was a joke maybe I shoulda said that I was joking... oh wait I did sounds like someone else doesn’t understand what a joke is
@bobbylupo, my bad
@bobbylupo, I’m glad I read this before responding to your comment 😂
Is this true?
@butternut squash, yep! Look up something like, “Parishioner stops gunman with single shot in Texas”
@ImNotRacistBut, well that's a big fat win for the second
We could also bring up the time were an armed gunman started shooting in a church in Texas and still killed 20 people. There were even cops there at the time. You can't use one occurance to back up either point
@Atomicking74, actually, guns being present at this Church was a reaction to that event. Previously, most parishioners would leave their guns at home before going to church, but after that event and one in a synagogue, more parishioners have brought their concealed weapons and churches (though legislation) have been allowed to create security teames made up of their members. This recent event was one of those churches.
@Atomicking74, ah yeah but let's continue to push stricter gun laws because of the few people who do stupid stuff like that good point
@Atomicking74, as Finndog mentioned, the governor passed a law that allows people with a license to carry to carry in places of worship as a response to the shooting you mentioned. The result is that the would be mass shooting was over in 6 seconds.
Also, in the shooting you mentioned, the citizen who ultimately stopped the shooter was another law abiding citizen with a gun.
@Finndogs, well then i can't argue said legesilation was ineffective. I just wish the license system was better and more universal and run by federal government instead of the state governement. Kinda like the FFL but just have versions of that. It just makes it a pain otherwise
@Atomicking74, why? The shooter was gonna do it any way. The only thing making getting a license to carry a gun would do is stop good people from carrying legally and protecting themselves and everyone else
@Wakeley, I bought my firearm in IL and currently live in IN, I needed a license to buy the gun and need it if I want to go to a range, if I want to go to a range in IN, I need an IN licsence which is a pain in the but to get due to other factors. The laws are different, the licenses are different. It would just make it simpler. Look at how weed is regulated currently, it's just a mess. Same thing, the licenses isn't the problem, it's that laws are inconsistent across the country and have stipulations based on which state you live in.
@Wakeley, to further example, as an IL resident, I can buy ammunition in IN, I can buy a rifle, but I can't buy a handgun, I have to go back to IL. Which a license on a federal level would prevent the problem. I understand that the FFL exists but there is still this state BS. States rights my As
@Atomicking74, or or hear me out. You just dont require stupid licences for people to own something they have the right to own because like unsaid before the only people you're regulating or stopping are the people who abide by those laws. Which arent the criminals
@Wakeley, I wouldnt want people with out driver's licenses driving cars, regardless whither they want to drive to work or driving into a mall. People do stupid things, so they are regulated so they don't hurt the rest of us, or at least they try
@Atomicking74, and yet people still do it every single day. Like I said before gun laws are only stopping you not a criminal because they dont care.
@Wakeley, that’s the only argument that really ever needs to be brought up if I wanna kill a bunch of ppl with a gun do u really think these laws will stop me I live in ny probably the hardest state there is to legally have a gun but if I wanted to get one illegally I’d have one in an hour and I know plenty of ppl that aren’t exactly on t right side of the law that have them so basically these laws r a joke that only stop the law abiding citizens that deserve to have guns from getting them
@Wakeley, I think you're letting perfect be the enemy of good in this case. What hes talking about is a system called "reciprocity" where permits are valid everywhere. No permits for constitution rights is best, but one permit only is still far better than the current mishmash. For one it takes the wind out of the sails of places that abuse permit systems to deny rights like commifornia, two it sets up an easier court case later against restrictions like AR bans and Mag counts because why should your constitutional right be a-okay in Wyoming and bad in New York when you meet federal standards.
@thrawnfett, yeah it is better to have just one but its still my right to have these things and I shouldnt have laws dictating something that's my right as a united states citizen. All of these laws are an infringement upon your rights and giving in turns into something like what Virginia is dealing with.
Is there a joke here? Or is it just a political agenda
@Belesarius, it’s an inside joke. You have to know who I’m referencing in the title for it to be funny. Otherwise I’m just pushing the freedom agenda.
"Yes, let the hate flow through you."
No funny, refining gun laws can put guns in the right hands, ensure those hands have some heads to them and keep them out of some wrong hands. Your problem is the direction of making gun laws stricter, Mr. Meme maker, please stick to funny over politics
@Factory BOY, I didn’t make the meme, just uploaded it. I’ll be sure to forward your message to the maker.
Beware the comments on this one
Did he use an assault rifle?
@RedeyeTarget, there's no such thing, but no rifles of any sort were present
@Medic135, well surely there is, I like guns and don’t care about people owning them, but I’m pretty sure the assault rifle definition has been around since WW2, though i know that people have been lax to use it recently because of the media
@Nosferatu Zodd, nope there is not, I can assault you with any rifle. Its a buzzword or a scare term.
@Medic135, well you’re right there, and definitely a scare term as it was invented by the nazis for their automatics, but it’s definitely been around longer than both of us
@Nosferatu Zodd, well yeah I don't disagree its an old term, just not a correct term. I mean depending on what someone assumes assault means I own between 2 and 42 of them, and they all just shoot 1 bullety boi
@Medic135, well if they are all semiautomatic then it’s not an assault rifle, so that’s just people being d!cks about the term and I wouldn’t listen if I were you
@Nosferatu Zodd, I don't listen, and I don't care what people think either I just want them to at least know what they're talking about before they b!tch about firearms. But I'm ranting at this point
Tl;Dr guns=good and dumb=bad
@Medic135, yeah idiots ruin everything for everyone, anyway have a good one
@Nosferatu Zodd, you too pal!
@Medic135, i mean its got a definition on google.
@BlazingBowman, listen I'm hopped up on caffeine and I'm seriously trying to resist a libertarian rant about how Google is a corporate shill for big government
@Medic135, google is a corporate shill for the democrates, and sjws who have wormed their way into positions of power in the company and just generally threaten them with accusations of racism, and other tisms.
@BlazingBowman, .... I love you
@Medic135, i love u 2
@Medic135, do it google is evil. You search assault rifle and they will show you what ever they want it to mean
@Dimir FTW, I am so proud of this community
@RedeyeTarget, so far none of the mass shooters in recent years have used assault rifles.
@Medic135, Google is garbage, their political searches come up with liberal talking points or sources first, snopes actually pops up all the time like it's even close to a credible source, i just can't believe how blatantly they have vetted information to get Democrat spin in a way that pretends it's unchallenged fact.
@RedeyeTarget, no, but he also didn't use an assault bat, an assault hammer, or an assault bow and arrow.
@Medic135, an assault rifle is typically defined as "a shoulder fired, infantry carried rifle with a detachable magazine, with selective fire capability (fully automatic and/or burst fire)". It is based on the German STG-44, or Sturmgewehr model 1944.
Assault weapons, on the other hand, is a made up word
@TheDoctorsTARDIS, i agree, assault rifle is a thingy thing that i like to shoot people with every day (in video games) but ive never heard of an assault weapon before. sounds gay.
@Medic135, assault rifle, not assault weapon my man.
@big freedom, find me a rifle I can't assault you with and I'll retract my statements of freedom
@Medic135, I’m on your side on this. But assault rifle aka machine gun aka fully automatic rifle is long established term. Assault weapon is idiotic term made up to scare simple minded liberals
@big freedom, oh I know you're on my side, but I've dug my hole and I'll be damned if I'm coming out of it now
@Medic135, the term assault rifle is valid. The US military acknowledge the term themselves. It's any rifle chambered in an intermediate cartridge capable of select fire.
@Medic135, lmao. I like it.
@Medic135, that is a stupid argument. Yes you can assault someone with any kind of gun, or pretty much any object. That doesn’t mean that certain weapons can’t be considered “assault.” That would be like saying there is no such thing as a breakfast sandwich because any sandwich could be eaten for breakfast. By the way I am definitely pro 2nd amendment. I just had poor arguments on either side of any subject.
@Mkb617, that's my thought about sandwiches too so fvck you
@Medic135, I actually laughed out loud on that comment.
@big freedom, well I've been drinking so
if God was in that church, it would have never happened but, apparently, that’s not the case:
Exhibit A - “they were eating communion” as the news casters said. communion is not in the Bible, just like christmas and easter, therefore it has no part with God; God is not with them.
Exhibit B - someone fvcking died in the church by the use of a weapon. How does someone wicked even make it into God’s holy sanctuary? It’s because that wasn’t God’s holy sanctuary; it is a den of lies.
Exhibit C - this congregation was held on a sunday. According to the Bible, the fourth commandment is keep the Sabbath day holy; it is a day of sacred assembly. But what day is the Sabbath day? It is the Seventh Day according to God. Please, go to dictionary.com and type in Sunday. It will clearly say the first day of the week. Therefore it is another false teaching; not a teaching of God.
Do not read these words as judgement, but heed them as enlightenment, because they are what God taught me himself.
@whatthefrank, all I know is that Sunday is the sabbath for Catholics cause that’s the day that the lord rested after creating the world
@sgc6610, as stated above, if you look at a dictionary or even a calendar, the first day of the week is sunday. How can the first day of the week be the seventh day of the week? It cannot.
The Catholic Church originated from Rome (the people who crucified Jesus and had pagan customs) and killed millions of Christians who worshipped God on the Sabbath day. It got to the point where the Christians that were left alive were forced to worship the sun-god (their pagan god) on Sunday.
In fact, the name for the “sun-god” is mithra. If you google mithra, it will say that the Romans declared the birth of mithra as a holiday on December 25th. This was in 325 A.D. so you can imagine the generations that passed on these traditions to the point where people blindly follow them to this day.
@whatthefrank, yeah that’s gonna be a yikes from me man
@whatthefrank, A) first corinthians 11:26, Matthew 26:26-28, first corinthians 10:16, Luke 22:19-20. I could go on. B) Jesus came down and spent most of his time with sinners. It isn’t the pure that would need to be saved. C) I admit I don’t know much about how Sunday service evolved from Saturday so I won’t try to argue this point either way
@sgc6610, that is just bad cathechises. The Catholic church does not consider Sunday as The Sabbath. It consider Sunday to be “The Lords Day” if you are Catholic, look in your cathechism at 2175. They believe that celebrating on Sunday fulfills the spiritual obligation of the Sabbath because it is celebrated in the day of the week that Christ rose again
@whatthefrank, I’m 99% sure that in most world calendars, MONDAY is the first day of the week. This is because a long time ago someone passed a law and declared Sunday is the first day of the week in certain countries of influence. This came afterwards and was in no way done to correct what day god rested on. So yes, God rested on Sunday, because biblically, Monday is the first day of the week.
@Imaginaut, Monday was never the first day of the week. It is the beginning of the work/school week which is why it feels like the first day, but no, it is not the sabbath day.
All of the world calendars goes as follows:
Sun Mon Tue Wed Thur Fri Sat
@Mkb617, brother, I completely agree about the bread and wine. But please read Luke 22:14-15. Did Jesus Christ say “I have eagerly desired to eat this communion with you”? no. The correct and proper term for the Feast is called Passover. In all the books of the New Testament and Old Testament, the Passover is the Feast God’s people celebrated since the time of Moses.
Only Catholics celebrate communion and their branch churches because they made up their own bible to spite God, which will be their demise.
in Galatians and Corinthians, apostle Paul wrote to The Church of God. This is the true church.
@whatthefrank, “only Catholics celebrate communion” is demonstrably false. Your opinion is invalid.
@big freedom, You’re right, I’m sorry. Allow me to rephrase: Only false prophets partake in communion because, as I said earlier if you can read, it is not in the Bible, therefore has no part with God. So thank you 👍🏻
@whatthefrank, “it’s not in the Bible, therefore...”
Are you one of those wackadoos... sorry that was prejudicial, do you believe that the Bible is “the literal word of God”?
1 Thessalonians 2:13
2 Peter 1:21
but most importantly:
Please read those and you tell me what my answer is
@whatthefrank, nah bro. I’m not reading those. But please enlighten me as to your answer... briefly
@big freedom, That’s exactly what the Bible is; the word of God.
@whatthefrank, it is stated in the Bible itself why the Bible shouldn’t be all that you should use when trying to follow The Lord. In John 21:25 it’s says that Jesus did other things as well and if it were to all be written then even the world would not have room for the books written. That is a slight paraphrase but it shows the importance of tradition that goes along with the written word.
@MrWonka, I was going to go with woooooowwww
@Mkb617, Not at all actually. Just because it reads that Jesus did many other things, doesn’t mean that we should conform to the ways of paganism. In fact it means we should follow all his teachings (Like the Sabbath day and eating the Passover once a year) and remain faithful to God while doing other things, like go to school and work.
The slight paraphrase is enough to lead others into the path forsaking God like telling them it’s okay to celebrate traditions and hiding eggs and eating choices bunnies while bowing down to a tree to receive presents or worshiping Santa.
@whatthefrank, I never said nor insinuated anything about sabbath day or paganism. You stated in one of your comments “ it is not in the Bible, therefore has no part with God,” I simply pointed out that the Bible itself contradicts that statement.
@Mkb617, it isn’t necessary to state the obvious. We live in 2020. Other things are necessary to live, like I said, work and school. The other things that Jesus did though were not in contradiction to the words of God. So be careful to the “other things” you are suggesting we do.
@whatthefrank, everything that is in the Bible is there for a reason. That passage is there so people don’t say or act in a way that come from the phrase “ well if it isn’t in the Bible, then it can’t be true or important.” The Bible already talks about work and teaching/learning. If that was all it was referring to it wouldn’t need to be stated
@Mkb617, So enlighten me, what “other” things are we to do?
@whatthefrank, Also, I won’t argue that not keeping Saturday holy is sinful. I don’t know enough about that particular subject to have an intelligent argument either way. However, many Catholics are wrong in their belief that the church considers Sunday the Sabbath, but the church itself does not claim that. The Catholic Church may be sinful in not keeping Saturday holy but having services and praising The Lord on Sunday’s, or any other day, is not sinful in itself
@Mkb617, a liar doesn’t openly say “hello nice to meet you I’m a liar our church lies come to my church” so yeah. Even if they were to tell you that it is sin, they would also claim that they have the authority to forgive sins, which they don’t.
But yeah in the Old Testament people were put to death when they desecrated the Sabbath. Now, in our time, we are also put to death; not physically but spiritually.
@whatthefrank, your last post has nothing to do with anything I said. Well ok I guess you talk about desecrating the Sabbath, when I said I didn’t know enough about the Saturday sabbath. So I guess I really don’t understand your point. How is it the Catholic Church is telling lies when they openly say in their teachings that Sunday is not the Sabbath but that they are celebrating The Lords resurrection? It seems to me you are doing what many people do. Hating on the church for what you believe they say and are instead of actually knowing what they believe.
@Mkb617, you said they do not claim that. But I misunderstood you apparently. If they do openly say that sunday is not the Sabbath, then they are basically we don’t care about God’s commands, we do as we want.
If you want to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, it is celebrated through the Feast of Firstfruits.
@whatthefrank, so you say Sunday isn’t the sabbath. The church says Sunday isn’t the sabbath. But that means the church is saying we don’t care about Gods commandments. I was enjoying the discussion until that bit of ridiculousness... have a good night
@Mkb617, Yeah because the Sabbath day is a day of sacred assembly. Instead, they choose to have their own assembly on sunday. The second commandment is Keep the Sabbath Day Holy, but they’re basically saying no, we will worship on Sunday. Call it what you want I guess, people do that anyways. God bless you dude.
One word. DUNBLANE. Here in Scotland, you shoot our kids we take your guns. And guess what? It works. Would I love to own a gun? Yes. Do I prefer children be safe instead? Yes.
@Kayda, here in Texas we can achieve both. I know literally thousands of people who grew up with guns. None of them have harmed themselves or others. Ironically, the one friend I did have who committed suicide with a handgun didn’t believe in the 2A.
@Kayda, here in the US we used our guns to overthrow a tyrannical king, who also held the Scots under his boot. Maybe you shouldn’t be so quick to sacrifice liberty for safety.
@Kayda, did you personally shoot kids? If you had a gun, would you shoot kids? If not, why would disarming you make those kids any safer?
Changed my mind on guns. Am now going to go magnet fishing for some in the bad part of town. David Hogg doesn’t know shít and if he had a gun he could have stopped the parkland shooter
@ReverseGiraffe, yeah, maybe if he was at school that day.
Why can there not be a middle ground of yeah definitely have some hand guns. Hunting rifles? Sweet. Just maybe not assault style weapons? And maybe have the liscencing and registration be universally at least as difficult as driving a car?
@SteveTheAlpaca, not trying to be a smart ass, but literally read the 2nd amendment and it should answer these questions for you.
@ImNotRacistBut, no it shows me an antiquated statement written over 200 years ago on a document that is literally designed to by updated with changing times. Not amending the constitution as needed is literally the opposite of what the constitution says to do
@SteveTheAlpaca, what needs amending? It’s pretty self explanatory
Look plain and simple if you simply say there should be stricter gun laws and that is your whole argument then you’re as big an idiot as people who say the laws are too strict and should be lessened without giving any examples of what they mean. Basically if you don’t have a specific example of how the laws should be more strict or less strict you should probably stay out of the argument and let those with more knowledge be the voices of reason
@George Feeny, again my stance isn’t pro or anti gun, it’s simply that if you are one of those people screaming that the laws are too strict and need to be lessened or the laws are to lax and need to be increased but don’t actually provide even a single example of how said law should be changed then you’re hurting your cause and should just sit quietly in the back and let the more intelligent protesters get a word in as they may actually make the world a better place by suggesting a change that fixes the issue.
