Well we don't have terrorists running knifing people. You cannot legislate away violence at all, you can only legislate away self protection. All the gun laws do is change the weapon people use to kill other people. Smart people understand that the police can't be everywhere all the time and it is up to us to protect ourselves.

If guns were easy to get, the terrorist would likely have had them too and the damage would've been considerably higher.

Right, American terrorists use guns like real men so the body count is usually higher. They're also almost always white guys with shit attitudes, but lets be afraid of Muslims.

My point was, violence is violence and it doesn't matter what tool they use. it is impossible to legislate away violence no matter what you try. Maybe governments should ban everything and send us beck to the stone age it would help(sarcasm). Blaming the tool used is easier than trying to change people's nature.

I was actually responding to Pulse. I agree with JGoins.
God bless the banquet hall staff and attendees who stepped in.

By the way, knife beats gun up close. I'm not saying 100%. But knife has the edge. (<--that's for everyone).

My comment was directed to Pulse and anyone who blames the guns people use to cause harm to other people instead of blaming the person who did the attacking. Maybe London should ban and remove all knives in the country. While they are at it they should ban and remove all motor vehicles as well. Maybe governments should allow people to protect themselves with whatever they need to do that while they await the police.

Funny you should mention that JGoins:

It's kind of funny, because 3 inches is plenty. Hell, even a box cutter is deadly. And a folding knife snaps out just as quick with a wrist flick. It's kind of like the ignorant rhetoric about "assault weapons".

How many more things are going to get banned before governments finally understand that bans and laws only apply to law abiding citizens and have no effect on criminals. People who intend to commit a crime do not care about the law and will carry out their desired action regardless of the law which applies. People who carry guns legally do not commit the crimes but they are the ones who are affected by the laws.

It amazes me just how myopic many of you are when it comes to gun control.

"All the gun laws do is change the weapon people use to kill other people". That is total crap!. I'm not saying that gun control laws won't lead to a change of weapon people use to kill other people, but that's not all it will do. If the London Bridge attacker had a gun the death toll would have been higher, so gun control laws also reduced the death toll.

"you can only legislate away self protection". More crap! The public stepped in with fire extinguishers and a narwhal tusk. Gun control laws did not take away their self protection, although I truly believe that those that stepped in were trying to protect others, rather than themselves.

"While they are at it they should ban and remove all motor vehicles as well". I believe America, like most other countries, already has vehicle control laws. There are minimum maintenance requirements, you have to show you are competent to use them, there are rules you need to follow when you use them, and if you mis-use them you can have your right to use them removed. Surely something that is designed to kill as it's primary purpose (guns), should have much stricter control!

Yes if he had a gun the death toll could have been higher but if others had been armed he might have chosen a softer target where others are not armed or he might have been dealt with after the first shot.

The people did indeed step in and prevent the guy guy from taking more lives but it doesn't always turn out like this. Attackers usually choose places where nobody would be armed and he thinks he can do his deed without fear of being stopped.

About the comment about motor vehicles, I was talking bout England trying to ban knives now and how ridiculous it is. If the attacker had used a car or a truck to kill people would they chose to ban them, no, it would be too difficult but a knife they can ban because nobody will object much and it will look like the government is trying to protect them. Again blaming the weapon instead of the person using it. Governments can't take on the big job of dealing with violence itself.

"but if others had been armed he might have chosen a softer target where others are not armed" - so you're admitting that having 'law abiding' citizens armed would do nothing but push the violence to other areas, not stop the violence or prevent further killing. At least we can agree on that.

Gun vs. no gun. In this case that's an interesting proposition that we will never know. And no one really wants to find out.
The banquet hall was hosting the 5th anniversary of Learning Together, that brings together criminal offenders with others involved in higher education:
[www.bbc.com]
So attending the conference were ex-criminals, corrections officers, banquet hall staff, and (I'll just call them) graduate students. If the attendees were only graduate students (there for a different purpose) the Polish national Lukasz would have had a harder time of it or maybe have been killed. The graduate students most likely would have just pooped their drawers and died. But the ex-criminals, and to some lesser extent the corrections officers, surely know shit when they see it. Add in some of the staff to fill in the gaps (and that is only because of the presence of a couple bad ass guys) and they have their defense. Gun or no gun the criminal knows when he is fucked and isn't going to be too happy about the situation. I think that it's safe to say that if Khan had a gun there would have been a higher death toll and Khan probably would have escaped (if he wanted to) only to be apprehended later. But because of the people that were present at the conference some immediate response to the attack was a certainty. Khan actually chose the wrong target.
GAK67, I don't know where you are from. But in the USA we have a 2nd amendment and we are keeping it. And all the whining around the world (and inside our comfy USA bubble for that matter) won't change that.
Oh I need to add that (Khan)gun or no gun, if someone attending had been armed with a gun Khan is dead on the spot.

I guess what I am saying is, if law abiding citizens carry guns it does not mean violence would ensue. Violence only happens when criminals carry guns and no amount of laws will ever stop that violence, criminals do not obey the laws.

"Violence only happens when criminals carry guns" - more total crap! Violence happens in many ways, not just with guns, and a lot of violence is committed by people who are not criminals until the violence occurs.

So you do understand that violence does occur even without guns. So why blames the guns and try to remove them from law abiding people? Why not try to blame and fix the underlying cause of the violence human beings?

Yes flawed people can go nuts but that number is really low and it would not be the gun that caused them to turn. Again, why take the easier route and ban guns instead of working to try to change human behavior?

They can cause massive damage with many other things as well, like a car/truck or a bomb. You are entitled to your opinion of guns but why should you and others force your opinions on the rest of us by banning guns? It is possible that someday you may have a situation where you wish you had a gun and hopefully someone with a gun comes to your rescue.

I agree with Pulse. Banning guns (or even certain types of guns) will not eliminate violence, but it will make it harder, so it should at least be considered.

And aren't you forcing your opinion on guns onto others by not banning them? I'm not saying you're not entitled to your opinion, just that using that as an argument is more crap.

I am not forcing my opinions on others just by voicing my opinions. It is the ones who try to change the laws and remove our rights who are trying to force their opinions of others. Banning guns when we have a right to keep and bare arms is forcing people to comply with one's opinion.

jgoins - you really don't get it. Either you're stupid, or you're so focused on your opinion you can't see the logic of others, or you're being deliberately beligerent.

Your opinion is to not ban guns. Other's have the opinion to ban guns. If one side's opinion is forcing something on the other side, then the opposite is also true. Less than 5% of the world's population has the constitutional right to bear arms, so your opinion to allow guns, or to encourage guns, or saying that law abiding citizens carrying guns would reduce violence, is forcing your opinion on others.

And your right to bare arms is of no concern to me - I don't care whether you wear sleeves or not. I think you mean bear arms.

Well Gak, Insulting people is not the way to sway their opinions. Insults are a sign that one is losing the debate and I think you will find in my past posts over the years that I seldom to almost never use insults.

Some people are so intent on removing guns and gun rights that they do not want to even try changing human nature which is the real cause of violence, whether it is gun violence or knives vehicles or even fists. I would rather carry a gun for protection and have done so for over 4 decades then take a chance my family will be harmed by violence in some form.
