    Humans aren't the same as animals. I love cats but even if I had my own cat and loved it dearly, an average human's life is much more important to me.

    correction - humans are animals, clever animals but animals nevertheless. I defy you to prove me wrong.

    those guns used for clay pidgeon shooting or those stupid plates that people shoot are not real guns they are air rifles just as dangerous because they can kill but are more responsible than a pistol or a semi automatic rifle

    violence in computer games is more tech related than buying a gun FACT

    and again GUNS BRING NO BENEFITS shooting for fun is cruel and disgusting, this is sorta like the fox hunting ban debate

    end of discussion

    All i wanted to do was read up on the new phenom x4's :shadedshu, People own guns for sport like i hate football and id rather go shooting targets than watch some guy run after a ball.... ok i only own a pellet gun but its still personal choice at the end of the day if i own one or not.
    If you dont like guns thats fine but preaching and telling people they are sick and retarded for talking about one is a bit stupid dont you think?. And what do you think humans done before food come wrapped in plastic it didnt kill it self did it ?

    If you live on a farm or a place not exactly next to a police station and a couple of guys come up with shotguns with the intention to murder you, is the solution to just say "ok do it"? The answer is no! If you come out the front door with a shotgun first before they can get close, you aren't going to get attacked. Furthermore, I plan to learn how to use a fire arm for my own personal defense because one day I might need it. Guns are the number one deterrants to criminal attacks.

    Like they say in Spiderman, "with great power comes great responsibility". If you have a gun, you have an obligation to use it properly and with caution. However, saying that no one is allowed to use guns is ridiculous. The bad guys can always go to Russia and get old AK-47's. If people aren't allowed to get a gun to protect themselves from these people, many more innocent people will lose their lives.

    Remember too-- it was guns, not words that defeated Hitler and Saddam Hussein.

    Ummm... no.

    MILITARY guns are designed to kill people. Civilian ones are not. DO you understand what 'hunting' is? Do you get the idea that people used to HUNT for FOOD? Some people STILL DO THAT.

    My family lives on a farm - they have pest animal problems with rabbits and foxes. Do you claim that my family are going to go murdering people, because THEY OWN A GUN! despite having a reason for it?
    Because my family have guns, they also do target shooting with them. Yes, sheets of paper have souls so that makes them KILLERS.

    Seriously man, you're F'ed up.

    I own guns. Rifle for hunting, shotgun for home defense (not that I've ever used it as such). I've killed animals, and had delicious meals because of it for weeks to come. A gun, at least in the US, is a right. It's in our constitution, and its encouraged to own one (or two or five). Privately owned and registered guns are not a threat to humanity. People stupid/crazy enough to kill people are. You're targeting a tool for being a tool. It's all about how you use it.

    Computers can be used to hack military computers, perhaps only the government should own them, eh?

    just PM YOUR FRIENDS OR GET THEIR MSN address

    EDIT: If you give people the choice some people will allways choose the bad one or the stupid one, eliminate the choice and problem solved.

    Freedom of choice is like this do youi want prawn cocktail crisps or cheese and onion crisps?
    Do want green paint or red paint?

    Ever heard of personal preference because that is what allows us to like different things, for example this allows us to have different tastes in music. There is a difference between choice and something being bad.

    Swearing casually takes away from the effect that it has, that is why we must only swear in extreme circumstances.

    you could very well create a virus that over heats your computer so much that it catches on fire.

    or you could hack a military system and send nukes all over the world if you want...

    silverel, you state a very good point that could get KieranD to close his mouth.

    KieranD: no matter what arguments you make, you're just coming off as irrational. If people argue with you that makes them a killer who wants to kill humans. Everything you say (regardless of any information to back it up) is 'fact'

    You're trolling. I ask that this thread be locked.

    Mussels said i was f'd up thats insulting another member of TPU ban HIM AND BAN ME WHILE YOUR AT IT I DONT WANT TO BE PART OF A FORUM THAT DISCUSSES OPENLY THE USE OF GUNS OR DISCUSSES MORALLY QUESTIONABLE TOPICS.

    I say FACT because its well known.

    i'm going to use kierans logic to defeat him.
    Take this post as sarcasm and illogical stupidity, thats how i'm intending it.

    KieranD: Since you dont like guns, that means you want people to be weaponless. That makes you a terrorist since terrorists want weak victims. FACT.
    You tell us you dont own guns, but terrorists are liars. FACT.
    I dont tolerate people with different opinions than mine, so i've decided that you are wrong and anything you say is because you are lying and just want me to get rid of my guns so you can kill me. because LIARS kill people. FACT.

    i own a few bows and one gun, i like to trap shoot and hunt- a few people here probably know my stance on guns, but in the end i have no problem owning a gun for hunting/rec pursuits, lets face it, shooting clay targets is fun, it hurts know one and it allowed me to spend time with my uncles who i cant really see any more, im guessing you would change your mind on the subject if you actually ever get the chance to eat venison Chile or shot some targets, btw in the end someone has to kill that burger your eating in order for it to get to you? how is a slaughter house different from hunting? is it more humane?

    :wtf:
