40 REASONS TO SUPPORT GUN CONTROL - 1 1. Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, & Chicago cops need guns. 2. Washington DC's low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Indianapolis' high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control. 3. Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are "just statistics." 4. The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994 are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates, which have been declining since 1991. 5. We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid. 6. The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals. 7. An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you. 8. A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet. 9. When confronted by violent criminals, you should "put up no defense - give them what they want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981, p. 125). 10.The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns & Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery. 11.One should consult an automotive engineer for safer seatbelts, a civil engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon for internal medicine, a computer programmer for hard drive problems, and Sarah Brady for firearms expertise. 12.The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, refers to the National Guard, which was created 130 years later, in 1917. 13.The National Guard, federally funded, with bases on federal land, using federally-owned weapons vehicles buildings and uniforms, punishing trespassers under federal law, is a "state" militia. 14.These phrases: "right of the people peaceably to assemble," "right of the people to be secure in their homes," "enumerations herein of certain rights shall not be construed to disparage others retained by the people," and "The powers not delegated herein are reserved to the states respectively, and to the people" all refer to individuals, but "the right of the people to keep and bear arm" refers to the state. 15."The Constitution is strong and will never change." But we should ban and seize all guns thereby violating the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendments to that Constitution.

The title says 40. Are there some missing or am I missing something?

Anyone else besides me want to flame this retard? Why the hell are you posting this sh*t on a pro-gun site? Are you stupid or just trying to get a rise out of people. You would do better posting Jessie Jackson's picture on a KKK web site. Get a life like Bill Klinton.

Deerslayer, go back and read the post more carefully. He is sarcastically stating the anti's moronic reasoning.

Oh boy, that is quite funny DeerSlayer.

Ok, flame me. My blood pressure goes up and I shut down anyone with that limited point of view. I missed the "funny" side.

first of all, i did this post a week ago. it didn't get any replies then, why should it now? don't know. second, tate, you didn't get to post all 40 because of the "more than xx,xxx number of characters in a post. etc, etc. third, deerslayer, YOU MORON, tate IS NOT A RETARD, he is posting a topic of HIS opinion that shows reasoning about why "anti's" want your guns. if the cyber warriors of this board would just lighten up a bit on the real world, we would be much better off, and perhaps closer to the real reason we are here. also, who gives a rat's azz about the "chicken" post and the so-n-so VS. so-n-so post. get to the real basics people. life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. the second amendment is dying and most of you just want to post topics about "chicken" and "star trek", "how big are you", "do you really have an AR-15", "what is your favorite color" and BS like that. do i care? no. flame away. it's my turn. colt

come on, let's hear it! let's discuss a "real" topic here. colt

Colt, your such a nice guy to reply to a MORON like me. I love the attention. I'm one of you so BACK OFF dude. I'd attack any anti-gunner posting on this site. This is an equal opportunity FLAME site. Maybe I should change my handle to "LooseCannon", CompleteMoron" or "UnStable". Only in America can people like us own guns.

DeerSlayer - learn to read. Get a dictionary - look up the word sarcasm. You aren't "mall leo" are you? Colt - I've posted stuff that never got a reply either - I think that when traffic is high, it goes to page two quickly and perhaps people don't go to previous pages of topics - who knows? I'll btt the other two portions of this so they are together again. I thought it was excellent and forwarded it to as many people as I could. Tate
