Came back after months to see if this blog was back up and active (Congrats, three new mods btw) and I see political debate? I appreciate intelligent discussion, but let's get back to happy sexy times, yea?

If you are Australian then why are you weighting in on Americans rights and what America's laws are? I mean if it doesn't effect you then why throw yourself out there for ridicule and so on? Why make it your problem to talk about.

I can answer this now that I have all the data I needed, I had to debate a serious topic of international interest, I picked gun ownership and given the massive influx of messages I received I thank you all, you have given me a lot to put into my paper

Fact: all disputes should be settled in the TRADITIONAL WAY. With SWORD BATTLES lasting HALF AN HOUR OR UNTIL INABILITY TO CONTINUE. (I'm not even kidding swords> guns this would be much more entertaining than court cases or gun duels)

Let us not forget tradition includes every culture amd aspect. Where as people would settle disputes with swords and a fair fight. There are other cultures simply abiding by their own cultural rules. America, canada, australia, germany, and the rest of the UK and generally 1st world country are multi-culturaled. When you bring all of these things, all these traditions together, its chaos. The removal of guns by putting something in its place does not make it any better than it was before. The death still occurs, the malice still flows in the blood of the beseached and the will of the innocent. As human beings we have it in our nature to feel empathy. How is empathy there when you cannot feel something with your bare hands. I have shot guns before. They give you power, they give you control, you feel only that. With swords, knives, bayonetes, clubs, whatever it is. You feel the direct connection to the being you are hurting. Why do many cultures have so many different ways of gaining recompence towards thoughs who have done them wrong? An american jury in the 1940’s would pull the switch on someones life with the electric chair. You feel no connection to the being you have just ended. No matter how heinous the deed they have commited. One of these cultures i could not track down the dates or even the proper term for the culture. Lets just go with viking or some shit. In those days and times if you wronged someone and were found guilty you were the manservent to the family, filling the debt that has been placed on your ledger for the crime you have commited. This is something you do not see. Not today anyways. My point through all of this is to say that it is a matter of whom you are, you can own a gun, own a sword, own any form of weapon. Call it protection. But putting a bandaid on a wound, a gash, a lasseration. It only hides it. This is my two cents. -neko

So on a more serious note

I don’t understand the reason behind the need of guns, one of the most common arguments I have heard is that if they didn’t have guns how can they defend themselves against someone else who does, but if the other person doesn’t have guns either then there is no need to have a gun to defend…

Criminals aren’t gonna care if something is illegal or not. They will find ways to obtain them on the black market. Making guns illegal will cause law-abiding citizens to be defenseless. Yes, an argument could be made that they’d be less likely to be in the hands of mental patients and crooked cops, but I’d like to believe that those issues can be solved in better ways, such as requiring cops to have cameras on their body and awareness of mental illness preventions.

I’ve always preferred swords over guns, but I cannot deny that guns do have a place in the world.

Do they genuinely have a place in the world, or do they only have a place in the world now because we made that place for them? Also going on your own argument, if guns were made illegal and a criminal managed to get their hands on it on the black market then merely having that gun in their possession would be reason for a police officer to arrest them, and for wielding a lethal weapon they could be sentenced jail time, thus getting that gun back off the street and putting someone behind jail hopefully before they can harm someone, and yet again, a significant drop in guns would also mean a significant gain in difficulty trying to find them, yet again referring to the case of Australia where yes violent gun crime has happened since guns were banned in Australia, but there has not been one gun massacre since the ban, 

Do you think that this criminal is just going to waltz around with their black market gun they got? No, they will hide it until they want to use it. It’s like people think criminals are all dumb idiots who walk around just pointing their guns and every Tom Dick and Harry.

Stopping everyone from their right to bear arms will not stop the criminals from getting guns. They are already breaking the law, why would adding another one stop them?

It’s like the drug laws. Almost all recreational drugs are illegal, but does that stop people from getting them and using them? No.

And I am not saying this won’t potentially happen, but what I am saying is that by putting a hefty ban in place, monitoring importations for weaponry and having police crack down when a weapon is found it will significantly reduce the likelihood of this event happening, some criminals will have someone they want dead, and they will do whatever they can in their power to have that happen, but the more you prevent it and put up barriers the easier it will be to monitor and control the situation, with guns being readily available the situation is allowed to spiral out of control, again I refer to Australia as a country that does not have guns and has significantly lower numbers of murders because of that fact, 

False, it is a misconception that firearms are illegal in australia, when in fact firearms such as handguns, shotguns, and semi automatic rifles are legal, a better country to say would be japan when the population of civilians are not permitted to have firearms except hunting rifles and the police are restricted. But a counter argument to that is the yakuza.

As an actual citizen of Australia I can say that your proposition of it being a misconception is actually false, whilst it is true that if you obtain a hunters licence (which has incredibly strict regiments you need to go through to obtain) you can carry small firearms when you are hunting, and ONLY when you’re hunting, and the gun has to be licensed to you with everything you do recorded, guns as a whole are banned, and you very rarely even find police carrying more than a sidearm pistol,

I don't know about the other anons, but I'm staying hidden because my opinion could upset actual gun owners. People can get rather emotional about this, and when they start thinking emotionally instead of logically, that's when gun crimes happen. Something that might not happen if those people weren't allowed to own guns in the first place.

Ah that is true, and again something that I have tried to point out to people, if you don’t have a gun when you start thinking emotionally you cannot use the gun to cause serious and unremovable damage,

And again @razielwolf (I really wish that you’d just sent this in a message so I didn’t have to go sorting through the notes) And as far as stopping crime. If I’m a criminal what’s going to make be obey a no gun law? 

Hefty fines, jail time, confiscation and smelting of gun into some other use, and crackdown the moment it is known you have one in your possession, along with making it significantly harder for you to gain one in the first place
