    gun control is far from funny and gun control fanatics even less so. it's the sensationalistic stories and claims made by the whackos(even if they are false) that can sway the folks who are "middle of the road" on the issue. any and all attempts by gun control advocates to spread their twisted message should be met head on with passionate but articulate debate by those who are wise enough to know better.

    I was middle of the road until I saw Lord of War. That turned me into a complete gun nut :bigthumb:.

    Why would I support them? They're a pain in the ass. I'd much rather be able to walk into the local dept store and walk out with an arsenal without having to deal with all the bullshit....

    And who is NCPA cause they are quoting them as saying

    "Legal gun ownership is unrelated or negatively related to gun crime rates, even after statistical control for urban locales. See Kleck, Point Blank, pp. 201-02, and studies cited therein"

    For how guns cause higher crime rate....

    For good info and gun control studies, buy the book "more guns, less crime". I think that's what its called.

    Too much text to make it worth my while, and I'll probably just get pissed off

    I think gun control fanatics on both sides are hilarious, though some of the pro-gun people are just downright scary :o

    they should just have a background check center. Before you want to go shopping, say a week or so. Just have them check you out, then walk into the store and buy whatever stuff you want :dunno:

    "more guns, less crime" by john lott is the end all discussion on gun control, and he backs it up with a shit load of statistics from unbiased and credible sources, usually FBI Uniform Crime Reports.

    www.gunfacts.info is also a very good source of quick facts

    Uniform Crime Reports really aren't that great of a source, the crime actually has to be report to the FBI before it's recorded, and if it isn't, you'll never hear about it.

    Yea, the hardest thing about arguing with either pro-or anti gun people is that thier opinions will not change. Most of the time anyway, its like arguing with a wall.

    i have never known anyone who has shot a gun that "hates" guns. they may not like them, but they don't "hate" them.

    i have never met someone who hates guns that has ever shot one though...
