I hope he comes back.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

He ignored the arguments where I stumped him.

He was the one getting pwned.
Political Correctness was either conceived by very intelligent people who are just putting us on, or by imbeciles who genuinely believe it.

The world is so confusing.

Not much to be said beyond the obvious.

Can you answer the questions that I have posed to gun control advocates?

Neither 4AD nor odeon have given plausible answers.  They just throw red-herring arguments.

All I saw was well-supported arguments that shot down your nonsense in flames.

It is self-evident that you are too far down the rabbit hole to be reached. But I found their arguments interesting. And I found yours amusing.

Scrap has a point; FAD does come across as more interested in lashing out with sarcastic mockery in gun discussion, and sometimes ignores thoughtful posts which confront the reality of the situation here, even when those insights agree with his point of view on some level. Though that seems his style, so that's okay; scrap has his own style too. Do like FAD, so hope he returns and shares more of it.

The problem with the "reality of the situation" argument is that the argument itself is a problem because it's used as an excuse. The simple fact is that you (the generic you) need to change or people will continue to die. It amazes me that someone like Scrap, who frequently praises rational thinkers like Richard Dawkins in other matters defying logic, can't see past this one.

Yes, but keep saying, the public support is there, but not only it just doesn't happen but the government fails to enforce the laws already on the books. Really don't think it's the general you that needs to change. The general you are the majority, and the majority support stricter gun regulation, the majority of households don't even have a gun and even among those who do, the general you among them aren't a danger. The lack of care-to found in the ruling fringe is as dangerous as the murderous fringe, and the general you can't do a thing about it.
