    hmm, kind of like the old danish commas. I can see that in english, fewer commas are used. In danish we splatter the text with different "kinds" of commas and did it not too long ago. The first two commas can be one in two kinds. Actually the third one too. But whether the commas are of one or the other kind the meaning stays more or less the same.

    You Americans just need to be more creative. I live in the U.K. and our lack of guns don’t stop us from being violent. Brexit is shaping up to be a massive shitshow, so you never know when we’ll finally start seeing yobs with guns. I’ve resigned myself to this life - I think I could manage living in a cyberpunk dystopia.

    What if they simply ban the import and sale of guns?
    Yes, it won't stop the problem, but in the future, it will.
    Guns will break down, or rust in the future, limiting the number of guns, solving the problem in a few decades, maybe?
    Yes, it's slow, but it's better than just not doing much about it.

    There are more gun related deaths in the US, compared to any other "western" country. 4 times as much as the country in Europe with the most gun related deaths.
    It is hard to do anything with the guns already in circulation, but a background check, or being a part of a gun club, having a hunting license or the likes, would help on accidental deaths and more. Over time that is. It would take years to notice the difference.
    People seem to forget that part.

    Ofc, every third person killed by guns in the US, is by a police officer. I doubt those numbers are a part of the homicide numbers.
    So there is a cultural change that needs to happen on many levels.

    And there is no room in the second amendment to restrict anyone from owning a gun? Like a background check?
    People who have been charged with criminal conduct have their rights removed or restricted all the time!
    People in jail often have no means to contact the outside world. Your possessions are taken from you. You can't be armed in a jail. Your right to freedom is taken completly away.
    In many states you aren't allowed to vote when you come out. Either forever or for some years.
    Aren't all of this against the constitution as well?

    Limiting someone with a background check, or that you need to be part of a gun club, wouldn't limit your right to bear arms. It would limit your ability to buy arms right away. Unless you restrict people from being able to join gun clubs, or if the background check disqualifies you because of anything other than criminal conduct or being sound of mind, then you still have your right!
    WHere does it say: A person has the right to buy a gun and get it RIGHT AWAY, no matter what. ?

    Just my opinion on it.
    If anyone can explain a reason why there can't be some kind of restriction, or why it would be against the ammendment, then I would love to hear it.

    Adam: "How do you propose we do that?"
    Girl: "With gun buybacks?"
    Common Sense Me: "If you make all firearms illegal for citizens they 'll face jail time for possession, therefore they 'll be much more willing to hand them over, whether or not they 're compensated. Illegalizing firearms will also put an end to production of ammo, which should statistically reduce gun violence over time, until it is completely eliminated. There 's a very simple rule you can follow for the law. When you give a private citizen the power to end other people's lives at will and with the simple press of a button that may be a bit too much freedom. However, I see no reason against legalizing recreational drugs, as they are most likely to have an effect on the person themselves."

      +Curatrix Excubiarum Yes I 've considered that. But from the top of my head most school shootings are not done by criminals, they 're done by kids who borrowed a relative's firearm. Also, criminals usually carry guns to use for monetary gain, therefore a massacre isn't their goal (unless you mean gangs). The bottom line is, banning firearms will keep them out of most people 's hands, and therefore statistically reduce shootings. It is really that simple.

    I agree with a lot of this. However, I believe Adam would have a lot more credibility if he interviewed conservative researchers, and not only California liberal professors (Professor Lott, for instance). Adam is also dishonest in trying to portray ALL NRA members as politicized fanatics who will not ever consider compromise. The truth is there are groups of people in our country who would LOVE to disarm us, for their own selfish reasons. And that, even if anyone could, the criminals would still be armed. If the mayority of gun violence is suicide or urban crime, then start there. Find ways to deal with the reasons people resort to violence and leave the decent, law-abiding citizen alone, and protected. We don't own guns ONLY for self defense, we love the shooting sports and we truly believe an armed citizenry is a road block to tyranny.

    The funniest (or the saddest) thing is even if all these 'pro-ban'/'pro-control' activist got their wish, it wouldn't change much. There's too many guns in the US and gun-culture is too deep routed. Maybe it'd be better if the 2nd amendment never existed, but you can't turn back time. Media never wants to talk about real solutions, deaths and attacks are only used as a political tool. There's no morality in this.

      c) culture is the problem. Gangs are rife and there is gangsta culture
      d) look at UK and their recent knife crime problem. The problem isn't the weapon but the PEOPLE who want to murder. They will find a way. Now UK is thinking about banning sharp tipped knives (no joke). Yeah. The problem are the shitty people with shitty culture. I don't care about your skin color. I care about who you are.

    How does the second amendment not guarantee an individuals right to bear arms?
    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
    The wording overtly states "the right of the people"... The founding fathers fundamentally believed that rights originate from an individualized context, thats the whole point of the constitution right? Outline rights that must fundamentally be protected for every individual. So at what point does the 2nd amendment become about guaranteeing the militia's rights as a group, and not actually the individuals within it. A militia couldnt exist without the individuals who comprise it.

    You can keep selling guns, but the owners of the gun will keep buying if you keep confiscating.

  • Michael Song

    Actually, I'm not all that interested in "feeling safe". I already feel safe. I just want to own guns, because having that much power with me feels good. The very fact that I have the power to point at something and kill it with impunity feels damn good. Not that I am going to go out and start killing things, but having it feels good. Of course, I'm never going to say that in public, since that'll be counterproductive against what I want.

    People can't seem to differentiate between racism and racial profiling. If there's solid evidence supporting that certain ethnic group (such as black panther era) is carrying gun illegally, then that's racial profiling. If done without any kind of evidence, then that's racism.
    For example, gov may indicate that poor people in particular area are carrying guns illegally. But if those certain areas are full of black people, then the black people yell out "racism".

    There are no quick fixes for the US on this issue, the country is too sick and too far gone when it comes to guns for that. But however gradual solutions need to be found and implemented. The situation is already unacceptable and it's only going to get worse. Yet all a disturbing number of gun owners do when there's another mass shooting or the huge problems with gun deaths and violence is brought up is worry mostly about their oh so precious guns.

    I think we have here awesome laws for gun control. They are strict enough to protect against gun violance but also made so they won't bully gun owners too much. There are 5 types of gun license - for collectors, sporstmen, hunters, for work that requires guns, and finally for self protection. There are also 4 gun categories. And every category of gun license allows you to buy and use certain guns and ammo from different category of weapons. To get a gun license on needs to undergo a background check and a psychological examination and to get desired category of gun license he needs to pass tests that are theoretical, and practical like shooting at target and prooving that you can handle the respective weapon you'll be using with that gun license. Only cathegory E allows concieled carry. Otherwise weapons needs to be transported unloaded and hidden.

    Very nice and informative video but why there that white guit thing again ? Yes americans were racist in the past and that is just it. I don't see how black people should be some special group in this debate regarding gun rights. In the past people were racist and were finding various excuses to mistreat black people including gun laws. Why did there have to be that example with the black guy getting shot by a police officer ? He was racist and found a reason to kill him easy as that. This stuff however isn't really problem today so why should it be relevant. Why is the black woman in the video so hurt like it all happened to her and all others are so sorry like they oppressed her or something. If you don't want to be racist you should treat everyperson the same, ignore that there is a difference in skin colour. I don't understand how was this neccessary. And the sad music and all Jesus....
