    No, not really.

    Well, I linked one in the post you quoted. I also linked an article about one in China, which is part of an ongoing trend in China, but I guess it's somehow impossible in the US? I don't know.
    Sorry, I must have missed the link. Did it pertain to the US?

    Okay. What point are you making? That the suicide or homicide the gun was involved in wouldn't have occurred if not for the gun?
    It was just food for thought.

    Yes.

    So you think you have no need for justifying why a civilian needs a gun designed for war and uses ammo that is designed to kill humans with one shot. Are you at war? Not without Congressional approval I hope.

    No I don't, because it's the second right guaranteed in our constitution.

    Is free speech also limited in that way?

    Killers live normal happy lives? Then what are the rest us of doing? If killers want a gun bad enough to go out of the country to get one, then I'd have to say the gun ban and laws were working in this country.


    I have already in included this in my list of mass murders of the 20th century and that was the only one that didn't involve a gun. The only one. So, there were three mass murders during the entire 80 years prior to 1980. Now compare that to the 62 mass murders since 1980 all of which involved guns. All of them. That is what I meant.

    Critical thought...

    They don't need to go out of the country, foreign suppliers come here. Even then, so what if they have to leave to go get them? You're saying killing themselves and a bunch of others is fine but leaving the country would be too much of a bother? Never mind that I've already demonstrated that a gun is not needed to commit such a massacre. What are you thinking will happen to these people if they can't get a gun period?


    I have already in included this in my list of mass murders of the 20th century and that was the only one that didn't involve a gun. The only one.
    So you were lying when you said:

    Also, your statement about that being the only one is inaccurate. I've already pointed out the knife massacres that go on in China. There's also Oklahoma City Bombing, the unabomber, obviously, and possibly a few others. Regardless, the prevalence of guns in these shootings are only relevant if a ban would be effective in stopping them. Why wouldn't a mass killer use some other method instead once guns are no longer available?

    So, there were three mass murders during the entire 80 years prior to 1980.
    I really doubt that. There were three that you know of. Media wasn't as sophisticated in the olden days.

    Now compare that to the 62 mass murders since 1980 all of which involved guns. All of them. That is what I meant.
    Also incorrect.

    There are mass killings once every two weeks:

    A third of mass killings didn't involve guns at all. In 15 incidents, the victims died in a fire. In 20 others, the killer used a knife or a blunt object. When guns were involved, killers were far more likely to use handguns than any other type of weapon.




    No, a meaningless platitude like yours is not an example of critical thinking. In fact, critical thinking is what leads me to reject such a silly argument.

    Weird. I need to reread the second amendment as the part about it only applying to muskets isn't in my memory.

    I'll ask you the same thing as our well spoken friend, is free speech limited in the same capacity? Can I look at methods of speech that did not previously exist and say the first amendment has no bearing on them?


    Actually, what about the fourth amendment? The founders couldn't possibly have foreseen the modern suburban household or metropolitan condo.

    (Interestingly enough, pistols existed loooooong before the constitution was signed.)
