Apparently some of the gun-lovers are whining about invasion of privacy with the proposed new regulations.
Yeah, think about this shit and then try complaining again about the gun issue.
I’ve seen a couple memes running around on Facebook, as well.
One is a cartoonish image with two people:
“Nobody NEEDS an AR-15”
“Well nobody needs a whiny little bitch, either, but here you are.”
Which, of course, is the gun-lover’s tactic: ad hominems and avoiding the issue. They don’t need such weapons and should be called to explain why they have them, whether they like it or not. Those kind of weapons in general circulation do harm to others besides the owner, and those “others” have a right to know why their lives are being put in harm’s way. Calling them whiny little bitches is just a bully tactic and has nothing to do with anything except the small and selfish mentality of those who use it. People resort to ad hominems when they have nothing else to bring to the table.
Another meme floating around is a picture of Ozzie Osbourne: “If guns don’t kill people, why do we give people guns when they go to war? Why not just send the people?”
Guns kill people. That is what they were made to do. It is the only they they were made to do: kill and destroy. There is no “safe” purpose for a gun. People are killed by cars, knives, electrical connections and a whole host of other things, but those other things were not made specifically for killing, and when used safely and as directed, they usually don’t. There is no safe, non-lethal purpose for guns.
