Pretty clever using the text bubbles to hide the punchline.

I feel dominated by my government. I own a gun. Are you saying I should do anything with it?

What, exactly, are you implying we do with these guns to protect our rights?

(((They))) have clearly thought of better methods of controlling us than with physical violence. Here we are, being, quite literally, brainwashed into a Zombie-State by our dear corporate and state overlords via the most sophisticated and subtle methods of social engineering and propaganda the world has ever vomited forth, and the only people who care to fight it are too busy ranting about how strong they used to be to actually do anything.

Face it. (((They've))) progressed the art of physical violence to the point where its simply naive to think our pussy-ass guns could be helpful even if it came to it. A hundred years ago people's beliefs were determined primarily by geographical proximity. Today, the internet has spread us all out. The days where salt of the earth people could become strong by raising arms together are over. Home protection is a semi-valid argument, the right to have them plain and simple is a stronger one. But are these worth it?

If giving up my gun today makes it so that in 50 years it is nearly impossible for a kid from a highschool to get a hold of one, I'm willing. The question is, are we capable of such long-term vision?

Gun control would have different effects in the short term vs the long term. At first, people would simply get guns in illegal, unregulated, unsafe ways. But as time went on, we'd see it grow harder and harder, and the threshold for people who are willing to go through all it takes to get one would get higher and higher.

It's not about us vs them in this. It's about us, and only us. Energy to fight (((them))) is better spent elsewhere imho.

As if you're not already dominated and don't give a shit as long as you can play with your guns.

Let me know when a single NRA member actually does jack shit to fight for their rights and I'll start to consider this argument as not 100% loser fantasy.

Don't bring the cucked NRA into this. They abdicated their defense of the Second Amendment a long time ago.

Remember people, their only goal is to minimize gun ownership. They know they won't squash it completely but that's a risk they're willing to take, you know, because they minimized it. Which is the VERY BEST one can do

This is actually brilliant​. "If people get guns illegally they won't split hairs over full auto". Making them illegal will result in more dangerous guns.

I think the problem with your comparison is that weapons of mass destruction exist in a completely separate class. If someone starts lobbing them around then the entire world is affected over the long term and the damage is widespread. By contrast, a gun is a directed and limited source of damage. It is entirely feasible to use a gun to stop a crazy person who has a gun and drastically reduce the harm they are able to inflict.

With regards to access to weapons by fringe, crazy people, increasing laws will still not actually prevent them from getting a hold of weapons. Heroin, cocaine and opioids are illegal but the US still has an opioid epidemic. I don't see why drug dealers wouldn't just expand into illegal gun dealing. Moreover, you have to consider that the guy that did the Las Vegas shooting was able to pass through background checks and the Parkland shooter was visited by the police something like 30 times AND evaluated by a psychologist. If 30 police visits and a psych evaluation aren't enough, what are the alternatives?

You’re trying pretty hard to make a point when you’re comparing legalizing heroin and owning a firearm.

You should test that hypothesis.

That's not a leftist. That's a brainwashed SJW centrist. Real leftists don't want to ban guns or abortions or much of anything.
