What the media will not tell you about guns:

They save lives. Not in some fantastic way that will create headlines, but quietly, day to day, incident to incident. When a gun is used to stop a burglar or a home invader, is it always reported with fanfare in the news? No.

If you were to tally up the total number of innocents saved by a gun in the hands of a civilian, it would surpass the number of victims in mass shootings, by a large margin. I myself had need for a gun several times in my life, against road ragers and drunks who decided to start trouble. I didn't shoot anyone, but having a gun in my hand kept me calm and feeling NOT HELPLESS. Certainly not dependent on the police to save me. Because, you know, it took a while for them to arrive after the call.

People complain about the evils of the assault rifle. Well the 5.56 x 45mm round that it fires is LESS LIKELY to overpenetrate than a FMJ 9mm handgun bullet. Why? Because the 5.56 round is essentially a .22 with a lot more gun powder and velocity behind it. It is a small, light round traveling fast, so it would tumble in the body and be less likely to overpenetrate. A FMJ 9mm bullet, having greater mass, would go through a body, and into an unintended target.

For the gun control crowd who would disarm law-abiding citizens and tell them to wait for the police, yeah good luck with that. Look at how the police reacted in Parkland, Florida. You're going to depend on cowards to protect you?

For as many guns as there are in this country, as many as the number of people and rivalling the number of cars, they are used in killing people WAY LESS than say cars. If you really want to save kids' lives, ban alcohol, or cell phones. Banning guns won't make that much of a dent. Look at California and Chicago. Still a lot of people being killed by guns in those places, and they have the strictest gun laws in the country.

For as incompetent as law enforcement has proven to be, and that goes up to the FBI, you are going to depend on them to protect you?

This is what life is like, no matter where you live. You are on your own. The media will try to make you think you can depend on law enforcement to protect you, but cops are just people working for a pension and want to go home to their families. Why would they stick their necks out for you?

There is no such thing as being taken care of in life. There never has. You want something, you have to work for it. You want safety, that is still on you. A gun would allow you to be less helpless when criminals target you. And who wants to be helpless?

And despite what happened in Parkland, Fl the Broward Co sheriff says he has provided "amazing leadership"

That's law enforcement for ya. Oh, I meant, that's Democratic law enforcement for ya.

This is also a good read.

"Commentary: Why Sheriff Scott Israel may be the GOP's new favorite Democrat"

Democratic sheriff wants gun control so people would depend on the police for protection, and yet when something like this breaks out, he says he has provided "amazing leadership" despite his deputies cowering OUTSIDE while the shooter went unchecked INSIDE.

They save lives.


LMFAO

They end way more lives than they save. They are made for killing. Pesky lil factoid.

I spoke to some law enforcement friends this weekend at a party. None of them want AR-15's and the like out on the streets.

Gun nuts are sick.

Lol those cop friends of yours are going to come save you when you are faced with a criminal? Oh wait, those things will never happen to you, right?

Your emotional, judgmental, and fully devoid of truth statement doesn?t change the fact that guns save lives.

Remember that church shooter in Texas? Guess who stopped him? A man with a gun (AR-15 too). He engaged the shooter, shot him and gave chase with another pro-gun civilian.

All studies show that guns take lives, not save them.

You are far more likely to be shot if you have a gun in your house.

Really...all studies? How about this one from US News and World Report?


Some gun control laws cost more lives

Maybe you shouldn't state your opinion as fact when you are wrong.

Bang Bang Shoot Shoot

70% of Americans support gun control right now. You will lose this battle so go cry wee wee wee wee all the way home.

Factoid (pesky)
Those countries with tight gun control have zero mass murders and still have mentally ill like we do.

LMFAO at the lunacy from the defenders

Those countries also have totally different cultures and demographics, not to mention history.

Just because you don't like guns, does not give you the right to take that right from others.

I don't drink, but I think alcohol kills a LOT of people every year, so let's ban alcohol. Why should you be able to get drunk at the expense of kids' lives?

You see how that works? People taking things away because they don't approve of it. 

jackass --- 204 days ago -

I haven?t heard one argument for banning guns yet...just people saying that. Yes, alcohol is a problem and we tightened up the laws on it. That?s what a thinking society does when something people perceive as a right starts getting out of hand. 

idontplaynice --- 204 days ago -

Yes, alcohol is a problem and we tightened up the laws on it



Not enough apparently, as too many people still die from it every year.

The minimum age for people to buy alcohol is 21, but you know what, there a LOT of teenagers out there drinking (and driving). So much for laws. 

Joe Blow --- 204 days ago -

Gun control, wanted by 70% of Americans.

YOU LOSE!

LMFAO 

RayofHope --- 204 days ago -

If the country had no guns I would be in favor of a gun ban, but they are everywhere. Gun-free zone signs are pointing out soft targets for killers.

?I better not shoot up the place, there?s an armed guard around and it might end badly for me.?



Said no psycho ever... 

idontplaynice --- 204 days ago -

I don?t know if someone fired a shot at Cruz he might?ve dropped the rifle and ran. He wasn?t a soldier just a kid with developmental problems. People like that are emboldened because there are no guns around. Same goes for the church.

What's with the fear-mongering? I haven't heard one person say they want to take the guns out of your home. Shoot away within your own premises. 

urabunchcats --- 204 days ago -

You are kidding yourself if you think there isn't bunch of people pushing for banning guns. 

jackass --- 204 days ago -

Nope, no one is trying to ban guns. It?s all smoke and mirrors from the gun nuts...again. And yes I have guns in my home and elsewhere. I?m simply not naive.


Wasn?t Obama supposed to have taken your guns like five years ago anyway?? What happened?? He sure sucks LOL!

False flag. Your paranoia is on display.

I follow the news quite extensively, be it on a myriad of Internet sites, multiple TV newscasts, and in print. Not to mention convos across a wide array of the population. I have not seen one person calling for this.

Currently 70% of Americans want sensible gun control. That is it. 

idontplaynice --- 203 days ago -

So this Broward sheriff Scott Israel is a Democrat with close ties to Hillary.

Not only did his deputies NOT go in during the shooting, they were TOLD to not go in because *official reason* they didn't have body cameras.

The sheriff's office also had 45 calls about Cruz, not the 23 that he stated.

CONCLUSION: This sheriff has an anti-gun agenda and was making circumstances favorable to a high body-count mass shooting. This would help his liberal allies to push for an anti-gun campaign.

idontplaynice --- 203 days ago -

Leap or not, that's exactly what he did, made the situation as bad as possible.

Then he tried to weasel out of responsibility despite it being his deputies, his department, his misleading 23-call statement.

But you don't care that his actions cost kids their lives, do you.

Oh really? How about this Democrat bill proposed to ban semi-automatic weapons? It includes pistols, rifles and any guns with detachable magazines (read: ALL semiautomatic pistols) and any with magazines that hold more than 10 rounds (read: almost all semi auto pistols). So that pretty much leaves us with an old 5 or 6 shot revolver or a bird gun. Yes, in their perfect world, you couldn't have ANY guns.

Their company, their choice. I have nothing against that. If I want to buy an AR15 I'll just go somewhere else. Dick's wouldn't be my first choice anyway.

Didn't even know they sold guns.
