And clearly has nothing at all to do with Australia having only maritime borders and not having 40 million feral niggers running around its cities. Nah, it's all about disarming people who were never going to kill anyone anyway.
well the paper makes a big separation from the single shooter and the criminal
since australia introduced the gun control because of the single shooter incident the author just thought it strange that the argument wasn't for the crimes committed by the non-single shooter criminals that had guns
that's the jist of the article
it contrasts the two arguments for gun control, to stop psychotic deranged "white male virgins" or to stop criminals who care "only about money and not use guns to kill you"
i dont personally believe that people who live in urban areas need guns (i'd prefer a system closer to Australia's where you have to provide good reason to own one, like defending your farm from boars). but the fact of the matter is implementing any sort of restriction like that would be immensely challenging in our governmental framework. various cases (DC v Heller comes to mind) have consistently reiterated various points regarding the 2nd Amendment. there isn't popular support for an amendment. people don't even want a lot of the mental health stuff because of how arbitrary it can be (they don't want some government appointed psychiatrist to be able to just say "you're crazy" and take away a Constitutional right without due process). the whole thing is a mess but there isn't a whole hell of a lot that can be done.
yeah but having that many guns especially in poorer inner-city areas causes issues
personally I believe that a lot of Democratic solutions to issues like this are "band-aid" type fixes. We need jobs? Let's create a bunch of temporary ones with infastructure projects! Issues with guns? Let's ban them instead of maybe looking at some underlying causes! (poverty, mental health, etc.) Health care expensive? Let's just make a new massive fucking system instead of maybe finding faults with our current system and trying to fix them. College expensive? Well let's just pay for it for everyone and not even begin to look at maybe WHY it's so fucking expensive. etc
It's not that the government couldn't fix problems. They don't want to. They prefer the disarmament of the people.
Gun regulation doesn't solve anything. It doesn't stop mass shootings. France is a great example of this. Where do most shootings happen in America? Gun free zones. And after shootings they want to have more regulations because the shooters used guns therefore we need to ban them. It bogles my mind that retards like that exist.
