Gun Control, does it work?
    #2197424 - 12/23/03 10:47 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

hope you like this one

In England, gun control is serious business. This doesn?t make it any less violent, it just means that wrong-doers have to be creative when it comes to weaponry. Authorities recently received a complaint from a 21-year-old man saying he been attacked and bitten by a man wielding a toaster. The incident, which resulted in the theft of $18 and a gold chain, took place in Coventry, 95 miles northwest of London

When toasters are outlawed, only criminals will have toasters.

I'd rather they came at me with toasters than guns.

If I'm in my house and they come at me with a toaster, I'll be glad to have one of my guns handy to pistol whip them with.

Personally, I think all guns should be illegal...in addition, I think that we should all be implanted with paralysis devices at birth, and we should have to apply to the local authorities to be able to move around, urinate, etc....

I don't care if I have to be chained to a bed and fed intravenously...as long as my government keeps me safe!

haha.

but really. that's not even the issue with guns. it's not that you'd be giving up freedom for security. gun control laws do not make you safer. if that was the case, their proponents might actually have an argument.

Of course they dont...but that is the major selling point of it...it is the same political argument over and over...three children were kidnapped and hacked to pieces, so we need to have stricter controls over television. Gangs are out of control, so we need tougher drug laws...Bananas are dying as a species, so we need warning lables on toasters...

I think if a guy came at me with a toaster i'd start laughing and tease him until he left ashamed that he's holding a toaster.

then shoot him in the back with my gun.

Look...I think we can all agree that all toasters aren't "bad"...But lets face it...what legitimate purpose can the average homeowner have for one of those giant conveyor belt toasters? I'm not saying that all toasters should be banned, but there has to be some reasonable middle ground.

I realize that this country has a long tradition of toasting its bread, pop tarts, bagels, english muffins, and yes...even eggos...I am not talking about that kind of toasting....

Unless you own a quiznos, I just dont see why you would need automatic feed toasters...It is a reasonable compromise of my rights to regulate such things.

Not to mention the media...You cant turn on a television anymore without seeing someone with a toaster...it makes the whole thing more glamorous and surreal. I think that people today arent cognizant of the reality of how much damage toasters do every year. Not to mention the inadvertant toastings when children see the parents using the toaster and end up playing with it when the parents arent watching.

How many people have to get injured, scarred, or worse before this country realizes that we no longer need toasters for survival?

What do you mean exactly by "does gun control work?" It works great at preventing honest, law-abiding citizens, the majority of the gun owners now, from owning guns. It might work at lowering the number of gun crimes, but more crime will take it's place, as in people with knives instead of guns. It would work fantastically if a dictator wanted to restrict all possible methods of uprising in the citizenry, so he enacted it.
