Today's Nemmy Inverse Poll! Topic of Inverse Debate: Gun Control. Those of you pro-guns, vote and debate anti-gun laws and rights. Those of you anti-guns vote and debate pro-gun laws and rights.
The only argument that really matters when it comes to questions about gun control is enshrined in Our Constitution: The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. That is very clear and concise. It does not say "unless we think it's too big."
It does not have a qualifier: unless someone uses it to shoot children, or college students, or collects them in his basement. There is no limit of One per customer, nor does it say But he can't actually LOAD the thing. All of those cases constitute
Infringement, which is explicitly forbidden by this country's most important, defining document.
Nemacyst: I'll try to come back to this poll. I really like this series.
on a side note, if I could, I'd follow you a second time for addressing cowboy's disrespect below. honestly.
This user is currently being ignored
I'm afraid I've already been following you for some time.
With guns on the streets, people can protect themselves! Ban them now!
Um, I don't know how to argue this one
The 2nd amendment makes no mention of the individual's right to own weapons. It says nothing about ammo. All it says is that states are allowed to have an armed, standing malitia. So quit using 2nd amendment as your argument
no it doesn't just say that It specifically says that individuals have the right to own sufficient arms and ammunition to protect themselves from all enemy's forigin and domestic. and it is the duty of the citizens to protect them self from
Where does it say that? I just went over the 2nd amend Monday and didn't see that anywhere in there.
Look at the rest of the world people. They have super strict gun laws & they have less gun crime. Who cares if they have significantly more crime overall? THEY HAVE LESS GUN CRIME!!!!
If we had better gun control, the number of school shootings would decrease significantly. People don't need guns for self defense. Knives and calling 911 work just as well.
Our founding fathers couldn't have imagined today's weapons and would never have included a right to bear arms if they would have known people of today would be carrying around the types of guns in existence now.
hmm, everyone has a right to protect themselves, their property, and their families.
Sometimes people with guns prevent crimes. Hunting is fun, and helps keep animal populations under control. Its really fun to go to a shooting range. Physically small people can feel safer.
I think that's it.
That's pretty good
I think all this stuff anyway, so it may have been cheating. I'm kind of middle of the road on this issue.
You don't even need a gun, the government is big enough now to take care of everyone.
.gov is not your friend.
Yes it is. It protects me and gave me a cell phone and it asks me questions about my personal life. Government cares about us. Anti-government republican (or would I say Democrats because we're reversed?) only want guns to hurt our government.
They say themselves that it is the enemy, disregarding the fact that it is government for the people and by the people. It says so right in their beloved Constitution.
Guns are bad because it helps murders kill people.
On a serious note, I can't think of a good debate to make guns illegal.
The constitution should be strictly understood in the terms of the time at which it was written. There were no multi shot weapons save multi barrel shotguns/rifles and black powder was the only propellant so all modern guns are not protected.
Haha! I laugh at these hunters who are so worried about banning assault weapons. If you need 30 rounds to kill a deer, you need to stick to fishing.
Society has progressed past the point where people need guns at all.
Why should any modern, civilized society continue to be held hostage by some rule written by people who lived in a completely different time and type of society?
We don't need to hunt for food, and we have a capable police force for protection.
Also, there are numerous non-lethal self protection choices. Like pepper spray and tazers.
Any responsible, civilized person should be perfectly safe without a gun.
You have a generous view of society, there are areas, where it's not safe.
I know, but in this poll we're supposed to try to represent the other side's position.
So if I sound like a crazy liberal, blame Nemacyst.
Excuse me, I half ass read the comment, however I can't force myself, against guns.
That was an apology for misreading the pole, please kiss my ass.
I take it you are declining to kiss my ass, too bad it would be a step up for you.
I love jvc
Criminals will always find ways to get weapons, no matter what measures we take. So what's the point?
The point is to make it harder, especially for the children. Think of the children in the schools, all the shootings. If we make guns illegal, they won't be able to steal them from Daddy's cabinet and shoot up their classmates.
I hate the Constitution and it's archaic laws. It has no place in the modern world. Only government agents can properly protect us. Banning guns will reduce all crimes. It just makes sense.
Pro gun control advocates do not make those arguments.
Well not openly. The Communists are still too afraid to speak up and tell us what they really want. That's why they have to use the Alinsky method.
What's the "Alinsky method"? I never heard of it.
It's basically where someone, say like Barry Seotoro, pretends he's something that he's not. Like pretending to love America while working behind the scenes to destroy it.
I didn't insult anyone. These are Liberals. It's what they think. Don't blame me. I blame their parents.
Apparently you don't know Liberals very well. The benefits of living in Texas. I don't know where you're at but maybe take a trip to Austin and hang out with some Communists there to see what they really think. It might open your eyes.
I made a logical argument and didn't insult anyone.
Geez you have some thin skin. I didn't insult anyone. I gave the Liberal point of view from arguments I've heard. Get over it.
No. That's what Leftists really think.
cowboy isn't intelligent enough to understand his opponent's arguments, or even try.
I know the enemy more than you could imagine.
Lol. You're the only person that I've seen get upset about someone answering their poll.
Do you need a tampon?
Do you pee sitting down?
Is your vagina itchy?
You know they have medicine for your vagina, right?
Nah... I prefer your mom.
Is your vagina crying right now?
Your vagina has that not so fresh feeling, doesn't it?
I understand that your vagina hurts.
lol I always thought you both were friends.
I don't know what his problem is.
Guns are intended for war, for hunting, for personal protection, sports. In a modern society we are capable of achieving peace, shopping at a deli, calling the police, and sitting on a couch and watching television. We have alternatives to guns!
The only purpose of guns is to kill. If we take everyone's guns away but the government's, none of us can kill one another! And, the government would never do anything to hurt us ever, so nothing bad would ever happen again!
Guns kill people. That's what they are designed to do. Why do we need these killing machines in the hands of average citizens?
Guns are unpredictable in that they sometimes choose to go all crazy and shoot a bunch of people up. If guns had better access to government funded preschool, healthcare, and didn't have to show an ID to vote then they'd be a lot less violent.
I'm pro gun and I gave it my best shot.
I thought I was supposed to help them; argue their side.
Nem is trying to make this a serious poll. Your comment was in no way serious and detracts from the whole experience. If you don't like it, don't try to mess it up for those who do enjoy it.
Gee. OK. It's your poll. I'll follow your rules.
You can do whatever you want. I'm not the Internet police. I was just asking so this doesn't turn into a shit show like the last poll. I think this is an amazing idea for a poll series and it will get people thinking.
I think this is one of the coolest series ever!
Look up, Nemmy! How did I do?
I need to know what I'm getting into. :)
How's mine Nemacyst?
Nobody needs ten bullets to kill a deer!!!!!!!
