I work with a guy who is extremely liberal (no wonder why no one associates with him) and a friend asked him what he thought about guns. This guy replied by saying that guns are responsible for over 50,000 deaths in the USA. My comment to that was how many shootings or deaths are done by criminals? He replied by saying it doesn’t matter, and that how do you determine who is a criminal or not? I said a criminal to me is someone who commits a crime. Then he goes and says that my firearms are weapons, and I told him that you’re just way to liberal and walked out of the office. If I wanted to be an ass, I could have told him that your brothers are responsible for most of the gang violence. I’m sure that would have gotten me fired or something, but it’s the truth. Not to sound racist or anything but there are more black males (oh I meant African American males for you political correct assholes) in jail then any other race.

So what are your thoughts on what a criminal is?

Here is the definition of a criminal.


Definition of a criminal

- somebody acting illegally: somebody who has committed a crime
- punishable as crime: punishable as a crime under the law
- prosecuting criminals: relating to or involved in the prosecution and punishment of people accused of committing crimes
- relating to criminals: relating to or done by criminals

Since criminals don't kill people and guns do, you should shoot him and blame it on your gun.

I think there's something like 17k murders annually in the US, and about 60% committed with a firearm. He's lying and or trippin.

Of the average 34,000 gun deaths in the US every year approximately 11,000 are homicides, 18,000 are suicides and 5,000 are unintentional accidents. We can change these horrific numbers.

This is from some liberal gun control freak. I just wrote a rebuttal paper on this for college.

If you look at our prisons its obvious there are not near enough gun deaths.

A true criminal fits into two categories:

  1. injures and/or endangers others

  2. takes things that belong to others



Victimless crimes aren't crimes

This is correct. Do what you will, but harm no one.

Someone who bakes with public decorum and violates natural law.

Someone who willingly harms others.

Laws don't have anything to do with it, in my opinion. I don't believe going 2 MPH over the speed limit makes you a criminal. On the other hand, politicians can do plenty of legal things that harm people. Some are criminals to me.

Someone who harms other people out of pure selfishness. Hence liberals are criminals.
