There is an obvious fallacy in trying to say smoking weed leads to you killing another human being too.

As for teaching someone how to use a firearm in a day, I taught my uncle how to wield a pistol in 1.5 hours. After 1.5 hours, he could disassemble the pistol, reassemble, and shoot straight enough to hit a 1x1 ft. paper target at 15 yards. You obviously don't have much experience in the field of firearms so perhaps I can be of assistance. Have fun for 12 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BypuKXOmEkg

I really hope "You'll figure it out" is not what they're teaching gun owners regarding when it's okay to use them on another human being.

I'm not sure how you got to that conclusion.

The fact that an attempt to overthrow the US government could be resisted with considerable force did not deter people from trying it. So why would we expect arming every household to deter people from breaking in?

Well if John really wanted a gun he would wait the amount of time (it should take at least 3-5 weeks) and after receiving trading and a background check he would have a gun. Guns are not and I just think it shouldn’t be as easy as one two three to get them.

Why should it take that long?


Depends if it's their first legal gun or not. I think 5 weeks is a bit long, but some waiting period would help to distinguish between people buying a gun to commit a crime, and people buying a gun for some legal purpose.

Someone who's bought guns before is likely not buying a new one to commit a crime. How do we know that? They haven't been arrested for a gun crime.


Of course, no-one is born a criminal. They all have a first crime (it's often not serious, they're often not caught) and not every criminal is necessarily buying a gun to commit a crime with. Other than continuous monitoring of someone's state of mind, it's only by their coming to the attention of police that we'd ever know that a person should have their gun taken off them to prevent their next crime taking a life.

So filtering out a few trying to make their FIRST purchase is far more likely to reduce gun crime, than trying to filter at the time of any later purchase. We're looking for criminals with no record yet, who want a gun for future more serious crimes, and the benefit of a waiting period is that they'll either drop their plan for a gun crime (particularly if it's for money: eg drug addiction is going to resolve one way or the other in that time), or they'll get caught trying to make an illegal purchase of a gun. Yes of course all private sales should also be subject to a background check, with penalties for prohibited persons trying to buy (not licensed yet, in waiting period, is a prohibited person) and also gun owners selling to a prohibited person.

It goes without saying that to distinguish between first-gun buyers and subsequent-gun buyers, it is necessary that every legal gun owner has a valid license. I'd also like individual guns to be licensed, but that's not relevant to the question of waiting periods.

What I meant was that alcohol when it was legal, there were many options to choose from ( free market forces), whether you wanted to be really drunk, or to be a little drunk. When it was illegal however, it was much easier to ship more potent and more alcohol concertation. Same thing with weed. The illegalization of weed and alcohol made it more dangerous.

There's obviously more depth you can dive into on the topic but ultimately it comes down to making split second decisions in the heat of the moment. That's why a lot of training on the topic tries to focus more on keeping you calm under duress so you don't panic and can hopefully make a more rational choice.

This always seemed an optimistic view on waiting periods. I'd your goal is to commit a crime, your waiting period will just ensure you start sooner. Background checks and licensing verification takes a few hours at worst, and usually only a few minutes.

The best that can be said is it reduces the chances of somebody committing a crime of passion with a new gun, but I am not convinced that crimes of passion usually involve even the delay to go to a gun store and walk out with a gun. I'm just not seeing waiting periods are more than a disincentive to gun ownership in general, rather than an effective barrier to specific crimes.

Since the right to bear arms is a right under US law just like how voting is a right, should voters also be required to have a license to vote? A good chunk of folks support no special license required to vote. As such, if we're treating rights equally, then there shouldn't need to be a special license to own a firearm.

You seem to suggest that one cannot or should not own a gun without perfect knowledge of the law and of a theoretical attacker's motives. This is an absurd standard.

A white supremacist does not have any reasonable basis to believe the mere existance of black people is itself an immediate threat. And you know that. People, believe it or not, are capable of objective assessment.

I...why are you doing this, man? You're making weird points that even if you were right don't really go anywhere. First of all, when weed was illegal shwag existed. Dads smoked shwag. It was brown and crusty and gross and you probably got higher off oxygen deprivation than anything else. Occasionally...occasionally someone would show up with weed that had a name 'n shit and stuck to walls and was nice and potent, but most of the time it was kinda slipshod weed someone grew in their closet.

But now, at least in California, all the weed is tested for potency not to make it less potent, just so you don't get surprised after eating the whole cookie or dusting the bowl and then forgetting what time is when you just wanted to be kind of mellow. But the actual potency of the weed...soooooo much better from a dispensary than when I had to go to some dude's house and create small talk for half an hour so people weren't just going in and out of his house.

But for like ten bucks I'm walking out with a pre roll that has sticky weed wrapped in oil infused paper and dipped in keef that's potent enough to make me think 311 is an okay band.

Again, I'm obviously pro-legalization, but where are you going with these weird ass arguments?

But I wouldn't confuse my ability to point the gun in roughly the direction I want the bullet to go and firing it constitutes actual knowledge of its use in the same way I wouldn't say someone putting a car in gear and aiming it down the road as being able to drive.

If you can hit your targets reliably and not shoot stuff you don’t mean to shoot thats about all that goes into knowing how to use a gun.

I kinda feel like maybe you shouldn't own a gun...
"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.
