A very effective anti-tank gun in the early years of WWII (1939-1943), but later became obsolete near the end of the war due to better armor on tanks (1943-1945), and many other nations used them as sniper rifles.

"IF WE WERE A PROBLEM,.. YOU'D KNOW IT"
Yes, we know it from the fact America is still a big global leader in apparent random mass shootings. In the United States, people have a greater chance of dying in mass shootings if they're at work or at school. Overseas, these incidents typically happen near military installations.
reply

in China,... it's mass stabbings,... the Mid-east,.. IEDs,... etc. It happens everywhere,.. but we see more news here in the US on mass violence as opposed to other areas of the world. Sick people will find a way to hurt other people. The meme basically (in short form),... trying to relay the message that responsible gun owners,... are not the problem. A very small % of legal gun owners commit gun crimes. If you took all the legal gun owners that committed mass shootings over the decades,... it would be dwarfed in comaprison to illegal gun owners whow commit gun violence in Chicago in one year. See where I'm coming from?

Americans generally don't emigrate because their personality type doesn't survive elsewhere. It doesn't sound like you've been outside of America, or are aware how America is generally seen as a joke. It's these sort of memes that fuel that stigma, and makes people cringe, especially when they don't have anywhere near the level of gun violence. You could liken it to how you laugh at Arab countries and the suicide bombers. It's the same bizarre imagery.

The attitude of this meme is the problem. You don't seem to realize how foolish America looks, especially to pretend the problem is in other states (deflection again).

You said it right there. RADICAL Muslims are doing it because of a misinterpretation of th Quran. The friend I mentioned had to flee from Lebanon because he wouldn't fund al Qaeda.

A serious question for you, how long do you think the members of Westboro Baptist and their ability to have a church in this country would last even if their numbers swelled, if they began strapping bombs to themselves and going to malls. How long if they started raiding smaller communities and killing/decapitating the residents because they weren't members. If the law didn't do anything about it, do you not think the citizens would?
The point is the radicalism couldn't survive unless enabled or at the very least, if the said billions didn't allow it to grow and fester.

Would you apply the same principles to the handling of the Davidian Sect in Waco? Or would they be excluded. Thanks.
4 ups
Had the Davidian sect left it's property and attacked those outside it's walls absolutely. However they did not commit any such acts. The nearby townspeople were intimidated by them. I have never heard any clear lines drawn as to whether they were intimidated because they had no idea what was happening in the compound and the members kept to themselves. or because the members were outwardly aggressive towards them. The Davidians may have taken the route of violence if left unchecked, but we will never know for sure because we did try to "check" them and we know the rest of the story. This isn't really a good comparison because the Branch Dividians didn't have millions of other Branch Dividians allowing at the very least heinous, acts performed in their name. You may not have seen the paragraph above your comment but if you have forgive my redundancy. Isis could not exist if the Muslims of the world decided they should not.
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
Except ISIS and al Qaeda aren't just bopping around the middle east with everybody cheering them on. There are millions of people in Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Kuwait who (as well as hundreds of thousands of Muslim Kurds) who have fought back against various radical groups, even though they are all technically Muslims.
If you ask me (this is my unpopular opinion of the day), a majority of militants in the above organizations are there because of their belief in radical Islam, but to seek revenge for American operations in the Middle East. All those wars we participated in killed thousands of people. That left orphans who want to seek vengeance for their fallen.
3 ups
I dare say Iraq with it's invasions Kuwait for starters, the war with Iran and its extermination of 100,000s of thousands of Kurds killed more and left way more orphans than the US. The Russians were far more oppressive and brutal in Afghanistan than the US, and in large part left that country because we supplied the rebels with the money, arms and helped to bankrupt the USSR. The only coalition I have ever seen created in the Muslim world are the ones we built. The fact of the matter is when left alone they perpetuate more violence against each other than outsiders ever have. For good or bad since WWII it has become more critical to stabilize that area as the potential for destruction due to the creation of more powerful weapons. I'm not saying all the decisions made regarding the middle east have been correct, but they have been made in an attempt to stabilize the region for the good of all.
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
Everything is true. I just find it ironic how modern western nations find it their business to stabilize the region with meddling, when the reason that area as a big pit of death is that the western nations meddle with them in the first place. But, I digress.
I do not believe Islam to be a religion of violence. I know Muslims. My best friend is one, and I have been to mosque with him several times and met hundreds of other Muslims, all of him renounced ISIS, al Qaeda and everything they stood for. Just as I do not see Christianity as violent due to the actions of Timothy McVeigh or 12th century crusaders, I do not see Islam as violent because the actions of a couple of assholes aren't representative of an entire group of people or the morals they live upon.
4 ups
That region was screwed up long before the western world even existed as civilized societies. Slavery and genocide were a way of life. To blame the western world for it is like blaming the soldiers in Normandy for starting WWII. I am not saying all Muslims are jihadists. I am saying Isis would not exist if the Muslim world decided not to allow it to. To say however Muslim nations are peaceful nations if left alone is simply ignoring their entire history.

The Ottoman Empire had the whole Mid East united under one flag for nearly 700 years. There almost no fighting until they got involved in World War One and domestic insurrections became the norm. And then, Europeans ignored all natural boundaries and territories between ethnicities and other groups and drew a bunch of arbitrary lines through the desert to create their territories. The fact that all those people with differing opinions lord together is what caused all the conflict in that area. Btw I am not including Israel in the Mid East because it is essentially a European nation

What is your criteria for judging and giving someone the idiot label? Or maybe the better question is, who should be able to make the decision as to who the idiots are? What would be your stance if one day you are deemed the idiot? For the record I don't think you an idiot, but that last one is a there to illustrate a point. I have yet to see the government want less of anything. Government has one major flaw. It is easier to pass legislation than it is to administer it. This leaves legislators passing more laws to look like they are concerned and doing "something" when in reality all they do is limit the freedoms enjoyed by everyone. I would be happy to see first how it works out if current laws are enforced and punished and THEN decide if more are needed.

I really think you're wrong about that statement: "Islam is not a religion that condones violence."

I believe Islam has a view for the world that its followers as a whole are commanded to carry out, and that this view involves converting people to Islam, or establishing communities of Islam rule where non-believers are subjugated to the ruling class. I believe that violence towards non-believers can be part of achieving this goal, and in some circumstances is not merely condoned by Islam, but explicitly commanded.

There are many Muslims who live peacefully with others - but that doesn't mean that the Islam is inherently peaceful, or that Islam doesn't condone violence. The people in the religion and the religion itself aren't the same thing.

Where in Quran is violence encouraged?
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
I don't understand why you're asking me that, or what benefit there could be to you in my answer.

But here's a link to Sura 9 from the Quran. In the beginning it talks about believers dissociating themselves from polytheists with whom they had made a treaty. If you scroll down to verse 5, you'll see that it commands believers to kill polytheists (unless they repent, in which case they are to be shown mercy).

If you scroll down further to verses 26-29, you'll see that it talks about Allah punishing unbelievers with angels and soldiers. It also says that believers are commanded to fight the unbelievers until they submit themselves and willingly pay jizyah (a tax).

The link:

About 1.4 million firearms were stolen during household burglaries and other property crimes over the six-year period from 2005 through 2010, according to a report released today by the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS). Google it bro.

We should implement sweeping gun control for criminals who will steal them ANYway? We have good gun control laws,... maybe dealing with the criminal cult should be a priority,... not punishing good legal owners. ????

I said gun crimes are not all done by legal gun owners. The majority of gun crimes are done by illegal gun owners, not by legal gun owners. So showing a meme with shootings done by legal gun owners is misleading. You're just showing a VERY small percentage of gun crimes. Someone told you to show the crimes committed by illegal gun owners and you don't say anything.

I could get by w/o my guns very easily. But, being human, I enjoy having fun. And my idea of fun is simply going out trap shooting, or target shooting at the range. It's relaxing to me, and I get tons of fresh air. Sunshine too, if I'm lucky.
This isn't for everybody, and that's cool with me, but I enjoy it. And no, I'm not one of those people who keeps peeking out the window, waiting for the invading horde to come marching down my street. I'm just an outdoorsy kind of guy, doing outdoorsy kinds of things, trying my damndest to not bother anybody else in my personal pursuit of recreation.

My father has a gun (I think a Glock and an assault rifle) because he's a police officer (works for LASPD), but my views on guns are not very positive. However, I still support the 2nd Amendment, I just wish the whole USA would do background check for people looking to buy guns. Just outlawing guns would create a disaster in the US.
Kind of like the US trying to ban alcohol with the 18th Amendment then was shortly repealed after the passing of the 21st Amendment.

Go to ANY gun store and tell them you want to buy a gun without a background check. We already have background checks and there is NO 'gun show loophole.' That's a red herring argument by anti-gunners. Try going to gunbroker.com and buying a gun over the Internet without going through a licensed federal firearms licensee who will lose his license if a background check isn't performed. The US is setting record after record for the sheer number of gun background checks being performed.

You just used an ad hominem attack to justify your position.
You get to enjoy my response in kind: Don't be a jackass. I was commenting on the effectiveness of it as a slogan as marketing material and a new way to say an old phrase.
I can argue either side better than you can wipe your ass . Beat it punk.

Heres the retort to that cliche: the argument that states if you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns is a straw man and logical fallacy. To assert that is to similarly say "locks on car doors are useless because criminals will break in anyway.. The fallacy is in ignoring that locks are a deterrent to impulsive criminal behavior. Thus gun control is not illogical as it will reduce impulsive gun abuse. Locked cars don't stop criminal culture auto theft. Gun laws don't stop criminal culture. But both are deterrents to crime at the margin.
Get it pin head?
And id be just as In your ignorant grill if you parroted an equally trite dogmatic liberal statement.
The debate has merits on both sides.
Go make your bed.

And the key to a wise decision on an issue is being able to see both sides.
For me the jury is still out.
For you, it would be an increase in gun advocates collective IQ if you hit yourself with a mallet.

=)... the debate went a little astray from my meme. Memes are sometimes interpreted differently ( not that you did ),.. but it was just to remind guncontrol advocates, that the responsible and legal gun owners are not the problem. But the fix on the left,.. is to punish the millions for the few. Sure,... legal gun owners have commited crimes,... but the scale is dwarfed,.. when compared to the illegal gun owners. I was trying to relay,... (and you understood),... we legal and responsible gun owners have most of the guns,... but are not a problem. I see gun violence a little differently,... I see a few "cultures" responsible for most of the gun deaths. 2ndly,.. only mass shootings by nut jobs get all the media attention. All the mass shootings over the decades are a very small part of gun deaths,.. like occur in Chicago, Detroit, LA,... etc in just one year. The US has become desesitized to that,... we seem to only become out raged at mass shootings... then blame the guns rather than the nut,... and then sweeping gun control measures are discussed again. This is a better topic for beers and a BBQ where people have face time,... but I know you get my opinon anyway. =)

Yup. It's a damn good rewrite of the " guns don't kill people" objection.. And it shoukd make any reasonable person weigh it against their existing opinion. I think his original "stupid" comment was a product of thinking I was sarcastic. He saw what he wanted to see.

if you feel 100% confident that you will always be able to get a well placed shot off and never engage a threat more than yards away,... then yes. If you have a standard shotgun, it loses 75% effectiveness after 50ft. Handhuns with standard barrels are good for 50M max... if you practice and are good. Someone with an M4 platform rifle would smoke you at 100 yards,... and can go 3X that distance away with cheap optics. It all depends on geography bro... and other things. I like preparedness on all levels. I think it's great you have something to protect yourself and family with,... !!

More people were killed by gun violence in the USA since 1980 than in all American wars ever. I think people know that there may be a problem there.
reply

That surprised me; it's part of American heritage like it or not. Odds of being killed are about 1 in 30-40,000 per year. Odds of killing yourself with one is about twice that high. There are over 300,000,000 guns in the U.S. & I don't think that counts military. Nobody is going to take our guns away. I'd like a bit more care to be sure the obvious bad guys don't get them, but I don't walk around in fear.

I wouldn't want to take guns away either, because that'll be one of the biggest and most blatant violations of the Constitution in the history of history. Also, if stricter backround checks don't work, how will people protect themselves from bad guys? So I don't like guns much but they have a use.

1) According to the FBI Homicide Database, white people were convicted of 2,698 murders while black people were convicted of 2,653 murders.
2) Guns don't kill people, people do. I wouldn't dream of taking guns away since they are a big part of American life, but I think more attention should be paid to who they end up getting to so lives can possibly be saved.
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
your fact may be accurate,... but you leave out a very important detail bro. Blacks make up about 13% of the population,.. but commit around half of homicides in the United States. Check DOJ stats 1980 and 2008,... they committed 52% of homicides, compared to 45% of homicides committed by whites. Non-hispanic whites are about 63% of the population. I imagine inner city violence is responsible for most of this gun violence... as my 1st thought,... but didn't research that. But basically,... 13% of the population,... is responsible for over 50% of homicides. Thats not racism,... thats a DOJ stat.
