  • Guns ?

    There was another school shooting yesterday here in Oregon.

    Why is it when someone gets shot with a gun it's the guns fault but it they get hit with a car or stabbed with a knife it's the person fault ect...?

    I just don't get it. Look forward to your input.

      I have two rifles and a handgun, but don't own an assault weapon, because so far I have no need to commit mass murder.

        It does have to be an assault riffle . If a gun that is used it's the guns fault.

            I am in the same boat. Rifle from the one time I went hunting, and a handgun for safety in the home.

              We've had a billion + 1 debates on this here at the mane. Frankly, I'm exhausted talking about this issue.

              My stance is the same. Assault rifles have no place in the hands of normal American's. You want to own a hand gun, a shot gun, a hunting gun, fine. I have a few of those myself. I don't think you need to bring your gun into places of business to freak out all the customers. Mass shootings are of course the fault of the person shooting more then anything else. Guns don't shoot themselves. Gun deaths will always be a part of society. Let's just try and make owning a gun and getting a gun more responsible by having background checks and I wouldn't mind having some sort of registration process and annual or bi-annual certification that you can still operate it safely, and that the gun itself is safe, and that the person shooting it hasn't gone off the deep end. I think assault rifles would be fine if controlled and secured by approved firing ranges. You could go into one, rent it for a few hours and shoot it there, but the gun stays THERE.

                My question is why is it the guns fault if its a gun and the persons fault if it's anything else.

                This has nothing to do with what kind of gun it is.

                  This is what is legally defines an assault weapon...it's relatively arbitrary....there's a good chance your handgun may even qualify and you didn't realize it.


                  Semi-automatic rifles able to accept detachable magazines and two or more of the following:

                  Folding or telescoping stock
                  Pistol grip
                  Bayonet mount
                  Flash suppressor, or threaded barrel designed to accommodate one
                  Grenade launcher mount

                  Semi-automatic pistols with detachable magazines and two or more of the following:

                  Magazine that attaches outside the pistol grip
                  Threaded barrel to attach barrel extender, flash suppressor, handgrip, or suppressor
                  Barrel shroud safety feature that prevents burns to the operator
                  Unloaded weight of 50 oz (1.4 kg) or more
                  A semi-automatic version of a fully automatic firearm.

                  Semi-automatic shotguns with two or more of the following:

                  Folding or telescoping stock
                  Pistol grip
                  Fixed capacity of more than 5 rounds
                  Detachable magazine.


                  I find it interesting that people assume an "assault weapon" is a machine gun. Those are illegal without very strict permits.

                    I agree with this but what I am asking is why when someone gets stabbed there is not a huge movement to ban Knives ?

                      I don't weigh in a political threads because it is pointless. That being said,it drives me crazy when people think they are being clever with the "CARS KILL MORE PEOPLE - BAN CARS" nonsense.

                      The automobile's primary design purpose is for transportation. A guns primary design purpose is as a weapon.

                      That is the difference. To postulate on argument based on ignoring this is intellectually dishonest.

                        Because a gun is made to kill. No other object found in an ordinary household is purely designed to kill. Knives are made for crafting, cooking and similar activities, as are scissors, chainsaws, cars, pianowire and baseball bats.

                        You don't buy a gun thinking, well this will really be excellent paperweight or this will make it a lot easier to make holes if I ever need to drill in some 10 mm woodscrews. You get a gun because you want to be able to kill people or animals, that is really all it is good for.

                          How's that ? A car is a weapon and even if you take cars out of it what about Knives ? It's a simple question that everyone has an excuse for but no one can answer.

                            There are plenty of knives made just for killing .

                              I thought they were for sport hunting and target competitions and such too. Guess they are only for killing school kids.

                              A gun protects my family. Something I'm dam thankful it's good for.
