    62 mass shootings since 1982? Enter at your own risk

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/...-shootings-map

    Are there more pros to tightening up gun laws against the argument that; it's in our constitution, too many guns to do anything, etc etc.

    If you are sick of these threads then don't bother commenting. I'm just curious to hear some solid arguments from either side as I haven't given it much thought..

    Less individualized society, reduced wealth/opportunity gap, greater social safety nets. There are some of the greatest preventions against violence. For those who are truly against violence, here are some things that deserve attention.

    But, people don't really pay much attention to mental health in America. Can't expect them to look at this issue deeper than new regulation/de-regulation on the guns used to commit atrocities rather than the mentality which initiates it.
    In the area of uncertainty, we ask others to commit to an enterprise that carries significant risks of negative outcomes. It is called "life."

    Don't I know it. That's why these people are "crazy" and have "chemical imbalances" in their brain, because in reality, they are products of our society and if we admit that then we are admitting that our societal construction is remarkably flawed. Probably further fuel for the highly individualized nature of America, where everyone is their own responsibility and nothing else outside of oneself should have a bearing on one's actions, emotions, cognition, etc. (big myth).

    Individualized society --> ostracized people --> mental disorders --> violence --> reaffirmation that such folks needed to take responsibility for themselves (maybe even through legislative change of some kind, creating greater disparity between the classes) --> further ostracized people --> further mental disorders --> further violence --> repeat

    If we are to acknowledge why these events happen and what forces give rise to such mindsets then we are simultaneously calling for drastic social overhaul to amend our horribly developed state. Who wants to acknowledge that the society they have built/supported is what causes these events to happen? No one. So we just call them crazy, assign this to unbalanced brain chemicals, call for greater/stronger medication, and repeat the process.

    You do realize I posted this at least once in the other thread right?

    Not sure why there are now THREE threads on a topic that was already being discussed in one thread...

    Most of the division in the area is between those who want to outlaw all guns versus those who want responsible citizens to have the right to own guns if they wish.

    How come no one is talking about the obvious issue here? The gunman was mentally ill. Perhaps we should be discussing how our society deals with mental illness. If this kid received proper help whether it was in the form of treatment or being put in a place where he can be monitored and not be a threat to himself and others then perhaps this event would have been prevented.

    I've already made my stance perfectly clear and presented dozens of arguments in support of it in other threads. No need for me to hash this out again on an internet forum where no one will be pursuaded anyway.

    there's a gun culture... people hunt, target shoot, take pride in ownership & gun safety

    its american tradition

    guns are not responsible for the destruction caused by psychopaths. is alcohol responsible for the destruction caused by drunk drivers?

    guns keep this country safe. the more guns there are, the less power each gun has

    gun laws would only affect people who are willing to abide by them(does not include murderers)

    so basically, more gun restriction = less guns for good people, but the same amount of guns for bad people

    the REAL problem is, too FEW people are armed... killers target schools & malls because the people there have no guns to shoot back... a killer would be put down almost immediately upon attacking a police station, gun range or other location full of well-armed RESPONSIBLE individuals

    take away guns from the people of a land, that land becomes defenseless

    also, you're not going to cure the fundamental ills of society by banning something... brb SOME people get addicted to alcohol & drive drunk...lets ban alcohol, disregarding the privilege of the majority of people who drink responsibly
    Some random autistic lifter puts himself out there in a positive way, and you keyboard accomplished bullies incessantly dog on him and spew ridicule and mockery because you see it as an opportunity to put somebody down in a situation where you won't be checked for your egotism and negativity.

    See, it sounds like you're assuming the most successful battle in deterring such crimes takes place when the event occurs. That is, the best defense from gun crime is more guns to diminish the harm upon the event arising. In reality, the real deterrent needs to happen long before the manifestation of the thought, "I want to cause harm to others."
    In the area of uncertainty, we ask others to commit to an enterprise that carries significant risks of negative outcomes. It is called "life."

    that's a good theory, and has potential to prevent violence from happening in the first place

    but putting that solution into action is a tall order. its much easier to defend yourself than instill a change of heart unto the perpetrators

    steps to minimize/discourage serial kililng should be taken... but until its no longer a threat, we better beef up security

    so basically, more gun restriction = less guns for good people, but the same amount of guns for bad people

    the REAL problem is, too FEW people are armed... killers target schools & malls because the people there have no guns to shoot back... a killer would be put down almost immediately upon attacking a police station, gun range or other location full of well-armed RESPONSIBLE individuals

    take away guns from the people of a land, that land becomes defenseless

    also, you're not going to cure the fundamental ills of society by banning something... brb SOME people get addicted to alcohol & drive drunk...lets ban alcohol, disregarding the privilege of the majority of people who drink responsibly
    There is so much wrong with this post, I don't even.....

    Can you explain what you mean by this? Isn't society the exact opposite - most people don't think for themselves and are hardly considered 'individualised'. Perhaps we need a more individualised society, but I think you're talking about the "everybody for themselves" mindset?

    I think a movement of some sort needs to happen to aware people on mental health issues and how we can deal with it everyday.

    A car is arguably a more necessary asset than a gun. They also aren't specifically designed to kill people. Alcohol can also be drank in moderate amounts, you can't 'moderately' shoot someone.

    You can apply that reasoning to owning a gun.In 2011, 9,878 people died in drunk driving crashes - one every 53 minutes, from MADD.org. My point being is we shouldn't take away everyone's right to drink or own a firearm because of irresponsible/immoral people. Should only criminals be allowed to own weapons bought from the black market?

    with popular topics, its either 1 thread with 50 pages in the first day

    or 50 threads with 1 page

    hard to organize it... and also there's slight differences between OP's objective for a thread(example: OP #1 wants to discuss pro/anti gun, OP #2 wants to rant about some nonsense, yet OP #3 wants to mourn the losses) so its hard to consolidate for a variety of reasons(different OP objectives, people don't search before posting, etc.)
    Some random autistic lifter puts himself out there in a positive way, and you keyboard accomplished bullies incessantly dog on him and spew ridicule and mockery because you see it as an opportunity to put somebody down in a situation where you won't be checked for your egotism and negativity.

    You're comparing alcohol to guns when you should really be comparing the car to guns. The car is the tool which was used to kill in the incident just like the gun is the weapon to kill. The difference is, cars were designed for transportation and guns were designed to kill. Also, drunk drivers don't intentionally kill people, whereas when people shoot other people, the intention is to kill as that is what the weapon was designed for.

    the gun itself has no intention. it can be used as a weapon, much like anything else
