okay, so clearly you're pro-guns. in your opinion, what is the cause of america's high rate of mass shootings?

chowbabyy:

I’m not just pro-gun. I’m pro self defense. I believe in more freedoms, not less.

Anyway, personally, I think the increase it’s a number of things. A lot of people might not agree with what I think, but …. here we go!

  • The media’s demonization of firearms. When was the last time you turned on the news and heard stories about firearms saving lives and preventing mass shootings? The media has essentially aided in brainwashing the public into thinking that firearms are ONLY for killing and not for self defense. I don’t actually think that mass shootings are on the rise due to the fact that CCWs and the ownership of firearms is increasing. I think that it’s being publicized much, much more. It’s popular to be anti gun right now and I’ll never understand why.
  • The increase in gun control laws has put the population at risk. Since the Second Amendment was created and placed in our Bill of Rights, it has been for protection. Strip away a person’s right to protect themselves and they become powerless. The increase in these gun control laws has put everyone at risk because it’s become so much more difficult to obtain a firearm in certain states. There seems to be a correlation between gun violence and places with stricter gun control. [COUGH COUGH CHICAGO COUGH]
  • Gun control laws aren’t about guns, they’re about control. Take away the guns, take away a person’s ability to protect themselves. It’s exactly what Hitler and Stalin in order to maintain their power. If the people don’t have a means of fighting back, any dictator can have control. Just look at Chicago - the Gun Control Capital of the US. They’ve had EVERY possible gun control measure put into place and yet over 60 people were shot during 4th of July weekend. ONE WEEKEND. That’s insane. I recall them having one weekend where they went murder free and I think it made national news. Chicago has some of the worst gun violence in the US because citizens are not legally able to protect themselves, but it hardly makes the headlines because it’d show gun control - or “gun sense” - in a bad light. (This probably should also be linked to the media)
  • Fear is a learned behavior. The media and the government has been doing a splendid job at scaring the public into being afraid of firearms instead of respecting them. And, in turn, the public is teaching their children that “all guns are bad” and should be feared. It’s a vicious cycle that needs to be stopped. Firearms should not be feared, but respected. They are merely tools that aid in defense - it’s why we use them to defend our country and homes. By not teaching people the benefits of having a firearm, we leave the population as walking potential victims. It seems as though people who are afraid of guns and who are genuinely anti gun are genuinely in favor of disarming everyone else to make them have a false sense of security. They feel safe by making everyone a potential victim.
    "Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither."  - Benjamin Franklin
  • Knowledge is power. People who are anti-gun often don’t understand how firearms work or have ever fired a gun. It gives a lot of weight to the saying that knowledge is power. People’s ignorance and unwillingness to look at the facts is literally killing others. People need to be able to protect themselves (and their rights - which is why the right to bear arms is the Second Amendment, but that’s a whole other conversation!). There are people who think that the Bill of Rights is outdated. REAL people - who vote - think THE BILL OF FREAKING RIGHTS is outdated??? If that doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will. 

Basically, I blame: a lack of knowledge about firearms, the media’s demonization of firearms, and the increasingly strict gun control laws. If you don’t like firearms, DON’T GET ONE. I don’t think there’s an increase in mass shootings, I think there’s a greater demonization of firearms and it’s being greatly publicized.

Imagine if some guy was tripping and saw the woman, runs up to help her and she just crumbles apart in his hands. That’s gonna take the trip south.

Franco Banfi

A swiss diver, captured these pictures of one of the six anacondas he saw on his 10 day trip to Mato Grosso in Brazil. This one was about 26-feet long.

"At the first moment it’s scary because you don’t know the animal and everybody says it’s dangerous. ‘But after a while you understand that nothing happens if you respect the snake. ‘I have never been so close to a snake like this before. But I think a small poisonous snake is more scary than a big one. At least you can see the anacondas clearly and know what they’re doing." - Franco Banfi

so, you don’t have to kill it…
