Sorry, doesn't compare to a gun.
"Rockclimbing, parachuting" - you have a death wish and must be put on a suicide watch and you are no longer allowed to participate in those activities.
"Warhammer" - your hobby makes you extremely aggressive due to the imaginable universe where "there is only war" and potentially dangerous to other people. As such, you should only be allowed to play with barbie dolls instead, providing you pass a criminal, financial, psychological background checks upon which you may be issued a "doll license". The only dolls you will be allowed to posses should not be more or less in size as predetermined by the government authorities. You can not have your dolls dressed up in army camo to make them "assault dolls" and the only place you will be allowed to play with your dolls are in the licensed by the government clubs with a yearly membership of around $500 or in a complete wilderness.
"How do ya like them apples?"
Oh really? Than how come there are more deaths caused by drunk drivers than firearms related deaths?There's an actual correlation between those who own guns and being more likely to commit other offences.
Might as well say you are going to jump off an airplane for recreation.The majority of people purchase weapons for recreation. Might as well say I'm going to purchase Heroin for recreation.
But it's a huge deterrent. There is a big difference between being a subject of a 6 months investigation and just being able to walk into Walmart with your drivers license as a proof that you are 18+ and just buy any gun off the shelf. Also that's the reason why I think that magazine capacity limit is moronic: criminals don't fallow the rules and laws.Criminals not subject to background checks - a bit like people ignore speed limits right?
And how do you know I am not able? Have seen me? Have seen me shoot the targets? Do you know about my military experience? Concealed carry is not allowed in Canada but if I had a chance even if I had to take a special course for threat escalation control I would not hesitate to do it.Protecting yourself? You're virtually incapable of defending yourself with a gun if one is drawn on you before you have a chance. You're not going to draw, unsafe, raise, sight and fire before you've got a round entering your face.
Already addressed that. And your points don't even begin to address mine.It is a man pulling the trigger. Yes, yes, we get that. Glad you've got inbred mind around that.
The majority of mass shooting were also planned months in advance. The guy in norway planned his long enough to write a long document detailing why he was doing what he was doing and such.The Majority of mass shootings were using legally owned weapons. There's an actual correlation between those who own guns and being more likely to commit other offences. The inability of the country to enforce their laws is more problematic, but should be done about.
