Gun control? What about crossbow control?

Recommended Posts

To be fair guns are a lot easier to kill people with than crossbows. If grenades were legal to own and as wide spread the grenade problem would be larger than the gun problem. 

 

There are 300 million people in the US. The spectrum of extreme behaviors is so large in a population sample that big that it's safe to say one out of the million most evil person is more evil than most people can even understand is possible. The problem is these people have simple access to guns as well the rest of the law abiding population rightly does so. 

So what's the solution? I would think the answer is somewhere between reasonable gun control and mental health treatment

Look guns should be available to people. I have one and I enjoy shooting. However, there’s literally zero need for a civilian to need a semi-auto rifle with a 30 round magazine.

Guns are a force amplifier.  Like a multiplier in a looter shooter.  It doesn't pull the trigger, but it does increase the number of victims.

 

What we need are a couple of BLM marches with fully armed United States citizens.  Conservatives will change their mind when they see that, just like they did when Black Panthers did it in the 70's.

Damn imagine the blowback if they did a march in a legal open carry state? :D

Yeah it's a people problem..........and what access to extremely deadly weapons general people can get. 

You think there are crazy, angry, etc people in Aus, Canada or other countries with strict gun controls? Of course there is, but the damage they can cause is far less than a place with such easy access to guns.

Guns aren't easy to access though, that's so incredibly dishonest.
