luca Valente Posted 9 months ago How would you feel if the government carried out a serious ban on guns? So you think the people in Iraq and Afghanistan were successful in defending themselves??? Those people are fodder in every gun fight. They stand no chance! even when they had tanks in Kuwait, not a single one of them survived and not a single one of us died. Iraq had one of the largest standing army's in the world at one point. They were demolished. The only reason we suffered some casualties was from IEDs beside roadways and suicide bombers within the last ten years. The only reason we did not end our "war with Iraq" within a Month is because we aren't heartless and we choose not to kill innocents when we can help it. Innocents were the largest group of people to die in iraq unfortunately, which is another reason why the war was pointless. We could have leveled the place in days if we wanted. As individuals, Iraqis and afghanis were nothing but fodder. You are kidding if you think they were a success on an individual level. SO, you think that in this country, if you went on a rampage with a tank, or with anything for that matter, that you would survive more than 30 minutes. Try it. You will have the news on you in 10 minutes, a full police force on you in 20, and if you aren't down by then, they would have a military strike on you in 30. That is not a joke. And to you Clay, I would suggest doing a tad more research on the correlation between firearms concentration in a country, and the amount of violence. Some countries like, Switzerland and Canada, have high gun ownership and low violence, but you are dead wrong when you say countries without guns suffer more violence. Many other countries in Europe, like Britain and Germany, or Japan. Have very, very low accounts of gun violence, and in some cases, they outright ban people from owning guns (unless with special permission). Those countries have murders rates ranging in the hundreds or less where as this country suffers from over 11,000 deaths from guns alone. THAT is a huge problem.
