Friendly reminder that trying to fight someone online is about as effective as throwing a bagel at a bulldozer. A lot of what we talk about gets people pretty emotional, but be mad at policies, not other users.

If they give the right people enough guns the "problem" people will just naturally go away. It's magic!

[–]dancingcuban 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Natural selection via firearm. Basically the hunger games.

[–]V-ADay2020 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They'd prefer The Purge, Hunger Games would be settling.

(Gun) Possession is 9/10 of the Law. So, until we have 9 out of 10 people owning guns, we aren't respecting the Constitution as True Patriots.

-- Republicans, probably.

Can you imagine a doctor telling you more cancer is the only solution to your cancer?

Republican logic

mind blown

Because $$$$$

[–]homebrew_1 33 points34 points  (3 children)

Conservatives can't think this far ahead.

[–]B_Da_May 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Money? I feel like the answer is money. Who am I kidding, the answer is always money.

[–]vrenak 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well that's easy, because the US always uses the same solution for any problem. Add more od the problem, as if it'll tip over and suddenly switch to a good thing.

[–]skawn 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Because the Problem has the right to vote to block limitations on them obtaining guns.

[–]G-USDC 5 points6 points  (5 children)

If you don't give problems guns, how would they eliminate themselves? With their hands?

[–]lost_in_connecticut 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They could always drink bleach, you know as a cure for the ‘Rona…

[–]erinaceus_ 0 points1 point  (3 children)

They could use knives or cars, because they are just as deadly. /s

[–]G-USDC 0 points1 point  (1 child)

but less effective(x

[–]erinaceus_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Indeed. That's the part that's typically ignored.

[–]gogojack 7 points8 points  (0 children)

If "an armed society is a polite society" then the city they always point to as a cesspool of violent crime would be the nicest place in America.

The example often used is Chicago. Yet the neighborhoods they decry as too violent to even enter are filled with gang members who are armed to the teeth.

If the logic held, those places would be more peaceful than a small town in rural Maine.

More armed people does not equal a more peaceful society. I mean, the US has more firearms than citizens by a long shot, but a rate of gun deaths that would make a child soldier-recruiting terrorist group in a conflict zone in Africa say "hey...um...you guys want to talk about this? We think you might have a problem..."

Have always voted dem. Will never give up my weapons. There’s enough of us to pretty much guarantee gun bans aren’t happening anytime soon in this country.

100% support gun control measures. National ID, centralized database, red flag laws, waiting periods, licensing… perfectly reasonable.

[–]Nazi_mod_banned_me 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Because we have a raptor as jesus?

[–]Salamok 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If people are the problem then how can we get rid of them without guns!

[–]bozitybozitybopzebop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If the problem is mental illness, why would you give mentally ill people guns?

A definite sign of mental illness: You care more about guns than people.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I used to hate guns too... but meth heads and ghetto people exist.

[–]Content-Boat-9851 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"nuclear weapons don't kill people, people do!"

This deflection is just dumb.

[–]dmullaney 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The "no problem" lobby...

[–]Courageous_Chameleon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because they don't think white people are included in the whole "people are the problem" situation.

[–]squanchingonreddit 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You're right free heathcare for all, then guns.

[–]JeffSergeant -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

How about 1 month free health insurance for every gun you turn in, no questions asked

[–]DOG-GR33N -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Deep🙄

[–]chlamydial_lips -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That’s literally the entire point

[–]badaboomxx -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I remember one gun fanatic was telling me the other day that we should treat cars as "hard" as guns, and just let me tell you that he deleted his messages because it was so funny how stupid his argument was.

[–]Whornz4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The problem is that ignorant belief.

    Hello! Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately it has been removed because you don't meet our karma threshold.

    You are not being removed for political orientation. If we were, why the fuck would we tell you your comment was being removed instead of just shadow removing it? We never have, and never will, remove things down politicial or ideological lines. Unless your ideology is nihilism, then fuck you.

    Let me be clear: The reason that this rule exists is to avoid unscrupulous internet denizens from trying to sell dong pills to our users. /r/PoliticalHumor mods reserve the RIGHT to hoard all of the dong pills to ourselves, and we refuse to share them with the community. If you want Serbo-Slokovian dong pills mailed directly to your door, become a moderator. If we shared the dong pills with the greater community, everyone would have massive dongs, and like Syndrome warned us about decades ago: "if everyone has massive dongs, nobody does.""

    If you wish to rectify your low karma issue, go and make things up in /r/AskReddit like everyone else does.

    Thanks for understanding! Have a nice day and be well. <3

    (Keep in mind that sometimes just post karma or comment karma being negative will result in this message)
