I like this.

However, some people are going to need more than clever one liners to see our side of the story. Just be prepared to back them up, either with facts, statistics or just a general conversation explaining your beliefs.


I like to call people out on their ignorance.

examples are fuzzy at the moment

I always get the typical

"Does that mean everyone should have nukes?"

"Should school kids be armed?"

"Are you compensating for a small penis?" (Get this a lot, what the heck does this have to do with guns?)

"Everything in life is a priviledge including firearms"

"Where do you think criminals get firearms? They steal them from people therefore people are the suppliers and the problem, duh"

"Europe banned guns and their murder rate is lower than Americas"

"We should have a licensing system in place like cars, that would stop incompetent people from causing further damage"

"Why do you need a 30 round clip?!" (I hate the term clip)

"Why would you need an AK47 and an uzi for hunting?"

"You are nothing more than a right wing, church going inbred redneck who probably drives a pick up truck and has a shotgun rack" (Funny as I was born in the north, rather agnostic, and drive a import.)

"Yes everyone being armed is a good thing, that's why Africa is a hell hole"

"Everyone should be required to take a test and be trained to show proficiency in firearms, there are too many idiots running around with guns" (Get this one almost all the time)

etc. etc.

Here is a short one I have seen.

Gun control FAQ:
1. What is the difference between full-automatic and semi-automatic? Is there one?
2. Are machine guns legal to own in the United States? Can they be easily bought over the counter?
3. How many legally owned machineguns have been used in a crime by civilians since 1934, when they were restricted by Federal law?
4. What percentage of American homes have firearms in them? a)10% b)25% c)45%
5. Is there any such thing as a 45mm handgun?
6. Is the crime rate by concealed carry holders greater or lesser than the general population?
7. Are there a greater or lesser number of crimes committed with firearms than defensive uses of firearms?
8. What did the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban actually ban?
9. What is the average income of a gun owner? a)$20K b) $30K c) $50K
10. Are you more or less likely to be injured a) resisting a violent assault with a firearm or b) resisting a violent assault without a firearm c) not resisting at all?
11. If you are a male citizen of the US, between the ages of 17 and 45, and not in the National Guard or other armed forces, are you in the militia according to the United States Code?
12. Thousands of children 0-14 die in gun accidents every year, true or false?
13. What is the ratio between homicides and democides (killed by your own government) in the 20th Century?
14. What is the correlation between restricting firearms and the violent crime rate on a state-by-state basis?
15. Which group shoots a bystander more often in a defensive shooting - concealed carry permit holders or cops?
16. How many guns do private American citizens own? How many guns does the military own?
17. What percentage of murders are committed with a semi-automatic rifle with a protruding handgrip?
18. What percentage of gun owners are not hunters?
19. What does a police department pay for a fully automatic weapon? What does a citizen have to pay for the same weapon because the government banned new ones in 1986?
20. How many Democrats lost their seats in Congress because of the Assault Weapons Ban?

ANSWERS:
1. Full-auto fires continuously, semi-auto fires one shot with each pull of the trigger.
2. Yes, they're legal. No, you can't buy one without an EXTENSIVE federal background check.
3. Through combing newspaper archives, it has been found that exactly one (1) of the 500,000 citizen-owned machineguns have been used in a crime by a citizen since 1934, when they were first regulated. No legally owned silencer, howitzer, or grenade has ever been used in a crime.
4. C, 45%.
5. No, but a lot of journalists get this one wrong. 45mm is in anti-tank weapon territory.
6. CCW holders are 20 times less likely to be arrested for any crime (source: Texas DOJ).
7. There are 20x more defensive uses than criminal uses (source: US DOJ).
8. It banned magazine capacities over ten rounds, and certain cosmetic features of military-style rifles. If you think it had something to do with banning machineguns, you've been duped - badly.
9. C, $50K. The average education level of gunowners is a Bachelor's degree. (source: NRA-ILA survey).
10. From most to least likely, b, c, a. You are least likely to be injured while resisting with a firearm (source: UK Home Office).
11. Unequivocally. If you meet these criteria, you are in the militia BY LAW under USC 10 Sec. 311. Therefore, you're in a "well-regulated" militia.
12. False. Accidental death by firearm accounted for 72 accidental deaths of 0-14 year olds in 2001 in the entire USA. (source: CDC)
13. The instance of democide is 200 times greater than that of homicide. (source: U. Of Hawaii study, "Power Kills")
14. The correlation is zero. Firearms restrictions do not impact the violent crime rate in any way. (source: Brady Campaign to Reduce Handgun Violence, USDOJ violent crime rates comparison)
15. Concealed carry holders shoot the wrong person 2% of the time. Cops shoot the wrong person more than five times as often - 11% of the time. (source: Kleck study)
16. Private US citizens own 300 million guns. The US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, and the National Guard combined own only 3 million guns. (UN Small Arms Survey)
17. Less than 0.25% of murders involve an "assault weapon". (Source: Uniform Crime Report)
18. Over 80% of gun owners don't hunt. (source: NRA survey)
19. A police department can buy a fully automatic M16 from the government for $500. Because mere citizens cannot buy any machinegun made after 1986, a transferrable M16 is $15,000, a government-induced increase of 3,000%.
20. "The fights I fought... cost a lot --the fight for the assault-weapons ban cost 20 members their seats in Congress." --William Jefferson Clinton

"why do you carry a gun, you planning on killing someone?"
Me - "Why? Are you planning to do something that would make it a good idea for me to kill you?"

That reminds me of the woman hating Brit who once said to me in usenet, "Women shouldn't be allowed to carry guns because I might be mistaken for a rapist and shot!"

Me - "How is it that you conduct yourself around women that you'd be likely to be 'mistaken' for a rapist? My advice to you is to put down that butcher knife, pull up your pants and go home."

"Should school kids be armed?"
No, but their teachers should be.

"Are you compensating for a small penis?"
I forget who it was, but someone on THR awhile back responded to this with "Hell yes, I'm compensating. If I could kill something at 500 yards with my penis, I wouldn't need a gun."

"Everything in life is a priviledge including firearms"
I thought it was a Bill of Rights, not a Bill of Priviledges.

"Where do you think criminals get firearms? They steal them from people therefore people are the suppliers and the problem, duh"
So let's ban cars. That will stop car theft.

"Europe banned guns and their murder rate is lower than Americas"
Wow, how many lies can you get in one sentance?

"We should have a licensing system in place like cars, that would stop incompetent people from causing further damage"
Ok, so if I get a license to carry a gun, it will be honored by every state. Every state must issue you a license if you meet the requirements. Anyone, any age, can buy as many as they want, and can use them on private property, no license required. Just like cars. I like it.

"Why do you need a 30 round clip?!"
Why do you need a 30 gig iPod?

"Why would you need an AK47 and an uzi for hunting?"
Who says I'm hunting?

"You are nothing more than a right wing, church going inbred redneck who probably drives a pick up truck and has a shotgun rack"
<response not high road>

"Yes everyone being armed is a good thing, that's why Africa is a hell hole"
Yeah, right, everyone is africa is armed. That's how they could kill a half million people with machetes.

"Everyone should be required to take a test and be trained to show proficiency in firearms, there are too many idiots running around with guns"
I agree. Everyone should be trained in proficiency with firearms.

The problem with trying to debate with somebody diametrically opposed to your views on a hot topic such as guns is that neither side recognizes the same logic values as the other side and so what is perceived as logic and being logical by one group is not viewed in the same manner as the opposing group. The differences really come down to an almost religious fervor.

Based on other threads that have include anti-gun retorts, what we pro-gun folks see as clear cut and clever insight is often perceived by the anti-gun people as ignorance and stupidity and vice versa.

The logical comebacks work for us because we believe them to be true just like the antis' logical comebacks work for them.
-----

Number 9 above was interesting. So the NRA found that the "average" gun owner is better educated and has a higher income than the rest of America? Based on that survey, gun owners earn more as individuals than the national household income and considerably more than the national income for individuals. The education difference is fairly amazing as well. Me thinks their survey is likely biased.

The anti-gun argument is about 80% emotion and 20% bad logic. There's no way you can counter with 100% valid, sound logic. The only real way to win is to remove the emotional, mostly fear-based element.

Take an anti to the range, let that anti pop off a couple hundred rounds, and don't be surprised by the grin on his/ her face afterwards.

Seriously, I wonder where the anti gunners get this garbage especially the "Compensating for a small penis" comment? Me wonders if the million mom march has been opening their dirty mouths again. Seems to be constantly brought up in debates. What does penis length have to do with a gun considering they are two different things? I've heard the comment when it comes to big trucks but to guns? Sounds pretty rediculous. Apparently protecting your family isn't as important as complaining about penis size to these idiots.

The small penis argument is that many American males feel inadequate sexually. And that they feel that if they have some other way of showing their male virility such as a nice car or a big gun they will feel better about themselves.

I would say it is an argument recognized by the gun community when they start to feel that a gun is a sort of talisman that will prevent them from being victims. Similar to when an anti-gun person says to call the police and a pro-gun person calls them sheeple or some other nonsense. Basically both groups are implying the other is not "manly" enough to handle being a victim or that they need something (in this case a gun) to make them feel better about themselves.

"Only police should have guns."
In a police state.

"Guns are an impetus to violence."
Food is an impetus to obesity.

"Are you going to shoot me?"
What are you doing that would give me a reason to shoot you?

"Why do you need X number of guns?"
Why is it your business?

"Why do you need to carry a gun?"
My safety as well as yours.

"Does that mean everyone should have nukes?"
They're not defensive devices. Irrelevant.

"Are you compensating for a small penis?"
I assure you, none of my barrels are ported!

"Everything in life is a privilege including firearms."
What have I done to be illegible to enjoy this privilege?

"Europe banned guns and their murder rate is lower than Americas."
Even if that's true, what works for them does not necesarily work for us. America != Europe; something we forced everyone to realize in 1776.

"We should have a licensing system in place like cars, that would stop incompetent people from causing further damage."
When has the lack of a license prevented someone with a car from driving?

"Why do you need a 30 round clip?!"
For when they just don't get the hint the first time(s).

"Why would you need an AK47 and an Uzi for hunting?"
For terrorist and criminal hunting.

"You are nothing more than a right wing, church going inbred redneck who probably drives a pick up truck and has a shotgun rack."
I guess you're a very prejudiced person then.

"Yes everyone being armed is a good thing, that's why Africa is a hell hole."
In Africa, only the privileged are armed... police, the rich, and those with good sense. Anyway, Africa != America.

"Everyone should be required to take a test and be trained to show proficiency in firearms, there are too many idiots running around with guns."
Why should something I do on private land, with private property be the business of the government?

skinnyguy

"Everyone should be required to take a test and be trained to show proficiency in firearms, there are too many idiots running around with guns."
You are absolutely correct, so when are you going to be tested, you DID say everyone.

"You are nothing more than a right wing, church going inbred redneck who probably drives a pick up truck and has a shotgun rack."
(my personal reply)I don't go to church, and I'm not a redneck, I'm a backwards-a$$-country-f**k.

"Are you compensating for a small penis?"
No, it's actually the opposite.

"What are you so afraid of that makes you want to carry a gun?"
Death, dismemberment, getting knifed, rape of either me or my daughters. Is that enough?
or I don't need to be afraid to dislike having MY right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness infringed.

"Why do you need a sawed off shot gun?"
Longer barrels are unwieldy, especially in tight quarters.

"Why do you need a supressor, do you plan on killing some one?"
If I planned to kill someone, I guarantee you that I could figure out MANY ways to do it without a gun, much less a suppressed gun.

Why do you need a supressor?
Not everyone wears hearing protection, and firearms are rather loud and distracting. Think of it as a public courtesy.

June 26, 2007, 08:32 PM
"Think of it as a public courtesy"

That is one way I like to put it but the anti's don't buy it. And thats if I can even convince them that supperssors are legal to own. If we are at work I can all ways pull a ATF form 1 or form 4 out of my locker and show them the appication.

"Longer barrels are unwieldy, especially in tight quarters"

I have used that too, but dismembering a bad guy in my house with a 12ga is a little hard to stomach for most of the anti's.
I like to stick with: because I can, or because there cool or because I want to be the first kid on my block to have one. My newest one, if it does get stolen the guy will most likely will be hunted down by the ATF and go to federal prision for years and not a county jail for weeks for if they had just stolen a regular gun.

My favroit
Them: "what are you going to do with that"
Me: "what ever they h3ll I want"

Them: "so if I started kicking you @$$ would you shoot me?"

You just said you carry condoms in case you are sexually assaulted /raped

"I have a cell phone, and can call 911"
Not sure the FCC allows Porn over the airwaves even if it is a 911 recording, get a Porn site on speed-dial and perhaps you can make money off this deal.

"Men are the ones you have to watch and protect yourself from"
Darlin' you really need to visit a jail and meet Bubba-ette

"I happen to be a virgin and am waiting for the first time to be special".
We differ on the definition of "special"

"Are you going to walk me to my car?"
You are the one with a rape whistle, cell phone, and condoms, not me.

No thats what happens when one side has all the guns and the other side has no guns.

Q: Why do you need...
A: What you should be asking is why we have a right to have one.

"Only police should have guns."
Is that because crimes are mostly commited against police officers?

"Are you going to shoot me?"
That's half up to you.

"Why do you need X number of guns?"
I like to share.

"Why do you need to carry a gun?"
What does anyone need? Food, water, shelter and protection.

"Are you compensating for a small penis?"
No.

"Everything in life is a privilege including firearms."
Everything?

"Europe banned guns and their murder rate is lower than Americas."
Then Switzerland must be a paradox.

"We should have a licensing system in place like cars, that would stop incompetent people from causing further damage."
Actually, we already have that for guns, but stricter.

"Why do you need a 30 round clip?!"
What you should be asking is why we have a right to have one.

"Why would you need an AK47 and an Uzi for hunting?"
I don't hunt. Refer to the foregoing answer.

"You are nothing more than a right wing, church going inbred redneck who probably drives a pick up truck and has a shotgun rack."
So you're anti-redneck? Would it change your mind if guns were cross-cultural?

"If i start kicking your arsch, would you shoot me?"
If you knew that some folks carry guns, would you be attacking whomever you wanted?
