In Topic: Computer / Pictures question

Yesterday, 08:55 AM

I put all my storage on 512MB flash drives, rubber band them together, tie a string to the rubber band, attach that string to a helium-filled balloon, and send my pictures to the Cloud. I assume that when I need my pictures, they will descend from the Cloud and return to me.

But your willing to conclude that by giving up your guns  others who have them (criminals)  will also give them up? A society of fair fighters.

What? No. I'm saying that other people who want more gun control feel that less guns leads to less gun violence. I'm not arguing for or against gun control, I was literally arguing semantics.

So somehow it's morally preferable to be beaten or stabbed to death instead of shot?  I don't get that.  That somehow disarming the most vulnerable among us while the violent criminal element still roams is somehow the moral high ground.
Take the numbers I've run from the CDC again.  The chances of you being truly innocent and getting shot, are vanishingly small.  By and large murder victims are people engaged in activities they shouldn't be, mostly the act of dealing drugs.  Legalizing and regulating drugs along with criminal justice reform would do more to reduce gun violence in the US than any amount of gun control ever could.

Where did I say anyone would prefer to be beaten or stabbed to death? I don't want to die, period.

Now, if you're asking which scenario I'd prefer, someone attacking me with a gun, and someone attacking me with a knife/their fists, I know the simple choice.

That being said, I'm not for gun control, I was simply pointing out the flaw in AUSkip07's post.

in terms of no more guns  no more gun voilence?  yes,   but in terms of less crime?   Absolutely NOT

I mean, I think that's the point though... Gun control leading to less gun violence is the major reason anyone wants gun control. Nobody is saying that without guns, violence stops.

lmao i was like lmao
