why the attack on guns?


Posts: 884

i been wondering why people are attacking guns? why this emotionally charged media campaign? if someone thinks they have an answer please post here.

i am going to assume at this point the attack on guns is due to the children being killed by psycho criminals with guns. as this is being exploited by the media to try to change gun laws. why though?

is it because the act is deliberate and calculated against helpless children? the feeling of helplessness? wtf is it?

 

why not focus on other forms of children's death? why guns?

 

i've been looking into some of the statistic for leading cause of children's death https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr67/nvsr67_04.pdf

the stats go up through 2016 due to government delay so are a bit outdated, but this is all i have for now

leading 2016 deaths for children ages 10 through 19, yes 19, hmmm

accidents 4999 deaths

suicides 2553 deaths

homicides 1963 deaths

 

US mass shooting deaths in 2016 numbered 49. if you assume all of these deaths were children, this would still be a crazy insignificant number  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_shootings_in_the_United_States

 

my point is, children dying is obviously not the motivation for the attack on guns. if preventing children from dying was the motivation. we would have a mass media campaign against accidents and suicides. not guns used in mass shootings

 

so what is the basis for the hate on guns?

Have you seen how fast guns fire, and how much spray and pray can doom an entire room? 

In order to defeat guns, you must be faster than them and pre-empt your strikes. This is how they do it with words.

 right, but why, what's the motivation? what is the underlying emotional reasoning?

Fear probably. 

I mean even if you look beyond anti-gun lobbying, even within Pro-Gun circles there's registries on as many guns and bullets as they can get the numbers from. Both sides are trying to handle things cautiously from an administrative standpoint, it's mostly the people themselves that find ways around it through illegal unregistered gun purchases at Gun Shows or these days trying to 3D print one.

maybe so, fear is a very strong motivator. funny cuz fear is the reason for the second amendment, fear of tyrannical governments both foreign and domestic.

 

im hoping that others on the left will chime in and help me understand the motivation behind gun hate

Gun laws and fear of the government go together like peanut butter and jelly.

You'll get mostly emotional sentimentality over it and the culture that houses it if people like Edvard from the past are any indication.

I mean, we do have that, and then some. We were even told for a while to be wary of razorblades and poison being in Halloween candy. Even the safety seal was added onto medicine bottles to ensure they weren't opened up and poisoned (this happened). 

Even trying to watch the show '13 Reasons Why' gives you an explainabrag-y Trigger Warning. We're a few feet away from becoming a Bubble Boy Bazaar, and not just because of technology.

If people, and not guns kill people, then why give people guns? Hmmm??
