    There is no place for extremes - libertarians and communism but the current US administration is deeply right wing and libertarian. Going after food stamps that wil save what $9bn over 4 years but spend $2 trillion on tax cuts over 10 years going to the wealthy.

    RWR love pushing forward the benefits of a free market, but there is no market that is free, a free market by definition is unregulated and anarchy, all markets have to have a structure and more often than not that structure is created by government and influenced by money.

    Yeah but only 251 mass shootings in 2019

    And a mere 30,000 gun incidents with 8000 deaths and 17000 injuries.

    If only they had more guns it would all stop.

    They should arm teachers, shop assistants, lollypop ladies, waiters, anybody in the street, toddlers. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    That way the NRA gun lobby would have more money to lobby government.

    Cars are not dangerous, the nut behind the wheel is though.

    Not Hilarious is it? Cars and guns in the hands of idiots are dangerous. We do need to deal with idiot car drivers as apposed to nutters with guns more so in this country.... Do you not think????
    Shootings a massive problem in the states idiots use it as if its a result of Brexit...

    Especially if the nut aims it at people. However, they are very lucky in the USA to have unlimited access to guns, so that nutters intent on killing can do so with ease, with distance and with the freedom that is unique to a powerful firearm.

    The comparison is ridiculous. Laughable. Yes we should be concerned about unnecessary deaths in the UK. We should also look towards the USA as a way of preventing the UK of ever being anything like those nutters over there.

    you can't shoot someone with a car. But the average person is more likely to kill someone else whilst behind the wheel.

    -----------------

    But in any case, why are we so concerned about stuff happening 3000+ miles away in a different continent? It's their culture, we need to keep our noses out. And as a multi cultural society should be be stopping yanks carrying guns over here ?

    Moron wasnt the word being referred to

    And I think you spelt 'a' correctly

    To put you out of your misery, what you said was really:

    You are are moron which may be shortened to you're a moron

    It is our concern... We need the US to be a stable country as we have too many unstable country's at the moment.

    I'm personaly concerned as I have family in NY and Florida...

    Its a pointless comparison. Just because there are more car related deaths than those caused by guns, does not make guns OK. The general public can live without guns.


    Is that what your post was intended to do?:confused:

    Conflating cars and guns is an old trope.

    Lets be honest it brings nothing to the debate.

    And your argument that we cant talk about guns in America because people in cars accidents is silly, as I am sure you realise.

    Heres a piece with all the same old gun arguments debunked

    Oh and in America I think guns have overtaken cars........

    Car deaths + gun deaths. = Dead people. Not nice

    Gun deaths + brexit = I'm still scratching.

    Can you finish this one for me please
