Yes yes, you think unrestricted access to pew pew machines is more important than other's right to go about life without the fear of getting randomly gunned down. I am shocked, truly.

Don’t know about you, but people don’t normally go around actively fearing that a statistically rare event will happen to them. If they do, that generally means they need to see a psychiatrist.

If you go about life in fear of being randomly gunned down, you either have an unhealthy phobia or you live in Chicago or Detroit.

B-But if their fears aren't rational how can they cause widespread pain and suffering to ensure their own comfort?

For bonus points, what’s the statistical probability a given American would have died in one of those three events.

And that means that they’re statistically common enough that the average person needs to worry about being gunned down? What are the odds of any given individual in the US being gunned down?

Less than being hit by a car.

But that's all this silly shit is.

They're not "small town" all three of those are labeled as "Cities". Gilroy has over 45,000 Residents and is the "smallest" of the 3. What happened at all 3 was a tragedy but don't try to use bullshit emotional terms such as "small town" to whip up support for an agenda when they aren't "small towns". Thanks! Now I need to get back to reading over how not to commit labor fraud for my exam.

Yes, the rates for non-RTC states were higher in 1982. After that, they drop off much faster than everyone else. I have actually read the paper. I’ve used it for Policy Debates at League level.


Robbery* My bad. Studying for Buss. Law exam tomorrow and crossed that with Burglary. Robbery - unlawful taking of property by force. IE, Michael Brown robbing the store prior to him being shot by Officer Wilson.

Sure, robbery is higher. That’s fair. But since every other type of crime is lower, and because the disparity has decreased radically, I’m gonna call that an acceptable sacrifice.

1. And that means that they’re statistically common enough that the average person needs to worry about being gunned down? 2. What are the odds of any given individual in the US being gunned down?

1. Yes, as by conservative estimates there's been ~340 mass shootings in the US. For comparison, the 2nd highest developed countries with mass shootings are generally Germany or France, and usually have <10 per year on a bad year.
2. That info's about your chance of being in a mass shooting , but generally, the chance of dying in a mass shooting in the US is 1 in 11000. Now while that does seem low, the US has a population of 325 million, which means that more people have a chance of dying in a mass shootings. (I'd personally prefer that number to be 1 in 200+ million)

You can downplay mass shootings all you want, that's fine, it's exactly what congressional Republicans did when 28 elementary school children died, so you wouldn't be the first, nor will you be the last.

Have you ever been at work when a robbery is going down and the perpetrator is waving an Illegal firearm around? I hope you haven't because I sure as shit have been and I am thankful that we have firearms at my restaurant for that exact purpose.

As for the robbery part, that is one of the most committed crimes and so I fully stand firm in wanting business owners and citizens to be able to own firearms to defend against them. Especially armed robberies which absolutely fucking suck. At least I still got lunch after that attempted robbery.

2. Could I get a source on that?

Or are you interested in saving lives only when it gives you a chance to rail against something?

Actually, in countries that have outlawed or placed heavy restrictions on guns, an armed robbery with a fire arm is pretty unlikely to happen, as the cost of actually getting even a standard or run of the mill pistol is so high that the average robber couldn't afford one to begin with.

That’s great that you were able to defend yourself. But we’re gonna need proof that most crimes are committed with illegally obtained firearms.
As for the robbery part, that is one of the most committed crimes
It’s number 5. Assault is number 4. But non-RTC states win on that front. And with the other 3 most common crimes (burglary, larceny, and car theft), non-RTC states only lose on car theft.

A good friend of mine who is ATF has informed me they have picked up multiple semi truck loads of grenades and full auto Soviet hardware in Florida, Georgia, and North and South Carolina on the last decade.

Those are 100% illegal to own in the US by anybody. But we have semi loads of them.

1. Nope, that's 340 too many.
2. When you provide a course on how 340 mass shootings in a developed country isn't a problem, then I'll consider it.
3. Oh, hit a nerve with that one, I'm simply pointing out an unbiased fact. You downplaying the number, frequency, and causes of mass shootings is not unlike the smoke and mirrors work NRA supported politicians (The vast, vast majority of which are Republicans) have been doing for the past 20 years, and they admitted that their fine with elementary school children dying as long as people get to keep unrestricted access to pew pew machines.
4. Not possible, especially in a country were there are more guns than actual people.
5. If that's what you want to believe that I'm doing, that's cool, I don't care. Everyone's allowed to think as they wish.

That’s great that you were able to defend yourself. But we’re gonna need proof that most crimes are committed with illegally obtained firearms.
As for the robbery part, that is one of the most committed crimes
It’s number 5. Assault is number 4. But non-RTC states win on that front. And with the other 3 most common crimes (burglary, larceny, and car theft), non-RTC states only lose on car theft.
and so I fully stand firm in wanting business owners and citizens to be able to own firearms to defend against them. Especially armed robberies which absolutely fucking suck. At least I still got lunch after that attempted robbery.

Page 7, 43% obtained it illegally through middlemen/black market. Biggest section of how criminals obtained firearms is illegally because it's easiest for them to obtain it that way.

A good friend of mine who is ATF has informed me they have picked up multiple semi truck loads of grenades and full auto Soviet hardware in Florida, Georgia, and North and South Carolina on the last decade.

Those are 100% illegal to own in the US by anybody. But we have semi loads of them.


I mean Gallo, with you being law enforcement, does that really surprise you?

1. A good friend of mine who is ATF has informed me they have picked up multiple semi truck loads of grenades and full auto Soviet hardware in Florida, Georgia, and North and South Carolina on the last decade.

2. Those are 100% illegal to own in the US by anybody. But we have semi loads of them.

1. Yes, in the US (And in the weapon loving South no less), a country with very few restrictions (Compared to every other developed nation) on weapons.
2. If you're rich they're not hard to get a hold of, which the average bank or store robber is not.

What were you trying to prove with your example?

2. Could I get a source on that?

3. Oh don’t you even try to play that bullshit. How about you save the crocodile tears, pull your fingers out of your ears, 4. and pay attention to the fact that we have proposed ideas towards reducing gun violence without gun control in this very thread? 5. Or are you interested in saving lives only when it gives you a chance to rail against something?

1. Nope, that's 340 too many.
2. When you provide a course on how 340 mass shootings in a developed country isn't a problem, then I'll consider it.
3. Oh, hit a nerve with that one, I'm simply pointing out an unbiased fact. You downplaying the number, frequency, and causes of mass shootings is not unlike the smoke and mirrors work NRA supported politicians (The vast, vast majority of which are Republicans) have been doing for the past 20 years, and they admitted that their fine with elementary school children dying as long as people get to keep unrestricted access to pew pew machines.
4. Not possible, especially in a country were there are more guns than actual people.
5. If that's what you want to believe that I'm doing, that's cool, I don't care. Everyone's allowed to think as they wish.

1. Yes and X amount of stabbings are X too many. Does that make it rational to go about your life fearing them?
2. Cute.
3. No, you’re standing on the dead and declaring that anyone that doesn’t support the exact same solutions as you doesn’t care about solving the problem.
4. Are you of the belief that the only possible way to lower gun violence is through gun control? Nothing else can impact those numbers? Wouldn’t the immense amount of guns already in circulation hinder whatever effectiveness gun control could provide?
