I read about it here in Norway and i just shake my head, first he is doing a foolish thing and when s*** is about to hit the fan, his anti-abortion is thrown overboard, looks like pro life dosen’t count when it comes to themselves.


#2378

LMAO @ your “solution”. The only thing you’d manage with that shitty ass “solution” would be more murderers, not less.


#2379

Prick


#2380

It’s like a dialogue from the beginning of a highly philosophical novel


#2381

brazil has heavy gun control and gun murder happens there every day ¯_(ツ)_/¯


#2382

yeah, a country in development known for having corrupt officials is such a great example for sure

guess there shouldn’t be anti-corruption laws either, corruption happens everyday ¯_(ツ)_/¯

hell why even have murder laws? it also happens everyday ¯_(ツ)_/¯

#2383

you must think you’re so clever


#2384

You’re the guy that thinks that stuff shouldn’t be illegal because people still do it, so i think you’re the one that sounds so very clever.

Hell if you fucking researched your fucking shit you would see that as disarmement and toughening of control laws has increased, FIREARMS RELATED DEATHS HAVE GONE DOWN IN BRAZIL

But who gives a shit about facts am i rite? GUNS GUNS HURR DURR GIVE THEM TO EVERYONE HURR DURR

#2387

chill it’s just an internet argument lol


#2388

Unfortunately, posts like these are a great example of what not to do when having a discussion – no matter how strongly you feel on a particular issue.

Have a glass of water and stroke your cat, take a breath… and then engage cordially with others.


#2389

You may want to check more recent numbers than 2004.


#2390

The study I posted on that exact post is more recent than 2004.


#2391

I should’ve quoted your follow-up. My mistake.

The point, however, is that the numbers have shifted in recent years.

#2392

even then

"Gun crime murders have been dropping in the states of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo but rising in the north and northeast of the country."
Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo are the zones where gun regulation is enforced most strictly and properly. If anything, it only shows the rest of the country needs to catch up to it.

#2394

Homicide rate and gun homicide rate are different things.


#2395

This is just sad…

The original film flopped at the Box Office too. It’ll stand the test of time.
