Off Topic / Re: BLF what is your view on marijuana?

i can sort of understand it being used for medical purposes but even then i think there would be better ways of solving a problem then just giving patients the marjews and saying "smoke it.... to ease the pain....."
Better ways like what?
Highly addictive opioid pain killers?

As for the war on drugs, I think the US of A is missing the point. Instead of trying to take away drugs (and failing miserably), they should go for harm reduction, helping the addict while slowly easing him off drugs.
This though
I mean, I'm for full legalization of marijuana, but other drugs that should stay illegal, we should move towards a hard reduction approach to addiction, instead of just making addicts into criminals

my bong is pink and silicone
Are you sure that's not a carrot?

Googled the device name, found an owner's manual, and found this:

Try that?

tbh id say
charger > switch > new 2ds xl

unless you really want the 3d effect, i'd save the money and get the slightly cheaper 2ds

Do you have the stats to share?
I can't find the study I originally found, but this looks good enough:

ban any fast-firing gun
What does this mean?
Full auto weapons are already.... basically impossible for an average citizen to own (cost of ownership is beyond affordable)
Semi auto (one trigger pull = one bullet) describes the vast majority of civilian owned firearms

they are only really made to kill.
Well yeah, it's a gun, all guns are made to kill
I don't get the people who say "yeah I support hunting and self defense, but you can't have x gun, those are only made to kill" like what are you going to hunt it defend with, something that doesn't kill?

probably some vows to the police force that you will not under any circumstance use this gun for harming of human beings
Is this actually supposed to be a legit solution?
I mean I'm all for background checks, but "do you promise to be a good boy?" isn't a viable background check

pistols are okay, honestly.
Are you aware that the vast majority of gun violence is committed with handguns? Rifles are really hyped as "killing machines" but if you look at come statistics, they only account for a tiny percentage of crime: more people are beaten to death with fists than shot to death by rifles

smaller, weaker non-lethal pistols that have like 1-3 shots per clip should be allowed in a public space for self defense.
Do you really think you're going to be able to hit a moving, fighting target when you're hyped up on adrenaline with only one shot?
Do you really think one shot is going to stop an attacker who's also hyped up on adrenaline?
How do you expect a non lethal weapon to be viable? "Ow, that hurt, ok I'll stop attacking you now :(" ?
Even trained police officers will dump an entire 10+ round mag into an attacker, because you need too make sure the threat is neutralized, not take one shot and pray for the best

You're talking about universal background checks? I was of the understanding that they're not in place, given the private sale loophole still exists?
Private sales only account for a tiny percentage of criminal gun use. Most purchases are black market, straw purchase, stolen, or legal purchase (they passed the background check)

Background checks aren't federally required for private sales, however:
Some states do require private sales to be done through a licensed dealer
Cross-state sales do have to be done through a dealer
It is still illegal if you were sell to a buyer that you know or suspect wouldn't pass the background check, were they to be given one

I have mixed feelings about universal background checks. I think it's fine for sales, but I don't think people should have to go through a ton of paperwork just to, say, loan their hunting rifle to their friends for a weekend hunting trip

The Parkland shooter had a whole bunch of warning signs, including tips to the FBI that he said he wanted to shoot up a school, yet nothing was done.

The pro-gun people are the people saying that holes like that need to be fixed.

The anti-gun gun crowd isn't paying attention to that, they're focusing instead on doing things like banning X gun and not understanding that their proposed legislation leaves nearly identical guns completely legal

Again, what does "too available" even mean?

no idea
i'm not interested in engaging too far down the 'muh guns' rabbit hole with americans because it's absolutely pointless.
I don't even own a gun. Never have.
So if your argument is based on "oh, you just don't won't to give up your guns" then you couldn't be more wrong

it should be pretty evident what I mean when I say 'too available'
No, it's really not.

they wouldn't use a shotgun because it takes longer to reload
You can get box mag fed shotguns, with like 20 round mags
The issue is that 12 gauge shells are significantly larger than pistol or small caliber rifle cartridges.

The determining factor is concealability. Most shooters either grab a pistol for that reason, or they say "I want to use what that other guy used" and grab an AR-15.
(Fun fact: the Parkland shooter used 10 round mags specifically because of concealability. And yet March For Our Lives is still pushing to "prohibit the sale of high-capacity magazines such as the ones the shooter [used] at our school" because forget research and correct facts, right? Why have that when we can have bullstuff propaganda instead?)

good question, doesn't mean that I can't think guns are too available in the US
What changes would you make?

And this is why such easy access to guns is an issue
well it's not like he obtained it legally

it's a culture problem
well, it's probably likely the kid god the gun from his dad, either his dad gave it to him, or his dad didn't secure it properly and the kid stole it
either way, if the dad is a drug dealer/addict, then he can't legally have a firearm

they'd be better off defending themselves with a bad dragon
ban assault dragons

but I can tell you I'm not a fan of the tommy gun or the uzi
they're decent CQC weapons, but i wouldn't use any SMG for med-long range, especially those since they can't take sights

So the Parkland school now has mandatory clear backpacks, students are saying things like "i can't express myself with my backpack now, now all these students' 1st amendment rights are being violated because of one individual"
like do they not see the irony in that?

Anyways, to answer the OP question, no I wouldn't, because it wouldn't accomplish.

There are legitimate issues with the background check system that I've heard brought up, but I've never heard a gun control advocate bring them up, all the arguments I hear are "ban this thing i've heard of but don't know what it means"
