    Mandatory minimums can get extremely bad. Locking someone away for 10 years
    being caught with a bit of weed is ridiculous. AND the US ALONE makes up
    25% of ALL prisoners in the FUCKING WORLD.

    EDIT: I know this isn’t about weed but this is why many people are against
    mandatory minimums. The amount of prisoners the US has is INSANE also.

    Yes, guns and pressure cookers are to blame for radical Islamic terrorists
    attacking civilians. If these devices were banned, the Boston bombing and
    Orlando massacre could’ve been avoided. Those terrorists would’ve said
    “fuck it” and went to Wendy’s.

    Why do Americans not understand that sure making guns illegal wouldn’t stop
    criminals from getting them but would make it both super inaccessible and
    super expensive by default reducing the likeliness of the wrong people
    getting them
    More guns is not the answer

    I’m not generally a fan of Bill oreilly but I think he is bringing to the
    table a sensible right winged approach to the issue. While I don’t like
    everything he said I do think it’s a well thought out appreciable
    suggestion. Certainly better that the black and white approach from Donald

    ”Forged the west with weapons” …Yea, how did that turned out…Oh wait,
    it was called WILD WEST as in any idiot with a gun tend to shoot anyone he
    wanted and somehow Indians were the criminals in the end… Also, the
    people who does the shootings doesn’t expect to survive. Once they commit
    the crime, it doesn’t matter if it is a federal crime or something like
    that. They killed their fill of people and mostly they commit suicide. That
    ‘mandatory’ stuff doesn’t prevent those suicidal murderers when they can
    get their hands on a gun…do the deed and die. What are you gonna do ? Put
    his corpse on prison ? Will that stop the shootings ?

    Also, what about the ”solutions” your RIGHT presents and your
    presidential candidate, going ” Lets ban all Muslims…that will solve the
    problem”. It sounds like an idea that came out from a 5 year-old. Just
    think about that…Fix your own SHIT then TRY TO BE LOGICAL about solutions
    before spouting them.

    NRA doesn’t care who buys the guns they sell as long as they get the money
    from it and none of the blame. And no , the ”good gun with a gun” theory
    doesn’t work since we don’t live in FUCKING ACTION MOVIES where the ‘hero’
    is an expert markman and can hold his cool under fire or something like
    that. If anything, they would be frozen in terror or worse, while trying to
    shoot the gunman , they would hit innocent bystanders as well. Even
    soldiers suffer those conditions in BATTLE , how do you think a normal
    person would react in a shooting ? Why do they ignore these possibilities ?
    Because they grew up on Action movies and Wild Westerns where the ”good
    guy” always hits the mark, bad guys always miss and no consiquences
    happen…
    They should wake up from that dream and face the REALITY of the situation.
    And driving more hatred and giving gun-nuts more justification, doesn’t
    help.

    declaring war on ISIS is a very slippery slope. Why O’Reilly was implying
    on the Factor bit was that the US should declare war on ISIS, in effect
    beginning a war on both in the middle east and on US soil, the latter of
    which hasn’t happened since the civil war 150 years ago. He then says to
    use the pretense of war to allow the military to detain people, including
    US citizens (the orlando shooter was a US citizen), without charging them
    of a crime. Where is due process in that?

    least it’s a start. Hearing a republican say he’s okay with some sort of
    gun regulation and reform gives me some hope.

    The problem is that small, concealable, easy-to-use killing machines is
    readily
    available, everywhere. 2nd Amendment? 18th Century, slave
    owning hypocrites wrote the Constitution many, many solar years ago.
    Time has changed, but technology grows exponentially. At some point, as
    Obama pointed out, we have to make a decision, as a society, what we are
    willing to live with. Guns are getting more effective, so is the
    killings. We have to draw a red line, somewhere. Where do you think it
    should be? Personally, as a hunter, I believe simple guns like
    muzzle-loaders, small caliber rifles, and some shotguns would be okay.
    To ask for more is totally unnecessary, dangerous(obviously), and selfish.
    Islam isn’t the problem, religion is. They’re all the same.

    Stephen is doing a great job here, regulating his audience and showing Bill

    feel like people of this caliber are dying out… when my generation is in
    it’s 50ies there won’t be many with the knowledge and integrity of a
    Stephen Colbert and (even If I don’T agree with him) Bill O’Reilly. I think
    it is important that there are conversations like this on regular TV to
    interest younger audiences in politics…. so there may be hope that some
    grow up to be… you know… grown ups.

    the thing i don’t get is: how are these people buying guns? maybe Omar was
    alot older than i saw, but still! no track history on them. no mental
    issues, abuse, trauma, anger issues, phobias? anything that would make them
    snap like Omar did? hell! there have been kids, younger than me (25) who
    had guns! did they have a licence? a parent who own one? stealing? i don’t
    mind the amendment myself, of course people need ways to defend themselves,
    but we don’t need fire arms at the hip ALL THE TIME! most people just want
    to live, have families and go on with normal life! i think the only people
    allowed with guns are true hunters and the US Army! and even then hunters
    should only be using small pistols or Sniper Rifles.

    i’m sorry, it’s just annoying when guns are brought up and people point to
    the people or group who fired them. if we remove the guns, then we remove
    violence! we need better laws added, more registrations to allow people
    fire arms and more security to protect people from harm! i know there’s
    always gonna be that one crazy person who gets a gun somehow, but if we put
    everything on the table and try to piece it together, we can make a safe
    country. nah! world!

    That being said, Bill continues to disappoint. He can be intelligent, but
    he almost always chooses to just tow the line.
    Further, mandatory minimums are not the end all be all solution.
    Further still, it is NOT the job of the news to propose a solution to
    anything. It is their job to report the facts, period. And Bill O is not a
    news personality, but an entertainer.

  • aliensarerealancient 3 years ago

    Looking at things in a completely neutral sense I think two things need to
    happen.

    1) We need to introduce mandatory checks for guns, if you want a gun i’m
    100% fine with that but if you’re a mentally unstable person you should not
    be in position of easily acquiring a firearm. I believe there are some bad
    people out there who may want to harm you and/or your family and you have
    the right to be protected, but we should not just turn a blind eye to the
    fact that getting a gun is much easier than it should be. Owning a gun is a
    huge responsibility and those gun owners who are responsible should not be
    punished but rather we should have ways to try and determine to the best of
    our ability who wants to do harm with weapons and who wants to protect
    themselves.

    2) We need to stop putting our hands in the sand, this was an Islamic
    Terrorist who inspired through readings in the Qaran (their holy book)
    committed disgusting and atrocious acts. I am not saying that every Islamic
    person is a terrorist which I know some of you might be thinking but what I
    am saying is we need to take a critical view of the religion which seems to
    be a common factor among these terror attacks. Obviously there is a problem
    that needs to be looked at closer with that religion, all religions should
    be critiqued and closely looked at but right now this is the religion that
    needs the most critique and analyse to figure out and stop those who are
    becoming inspired by it to commit terrible crimes.

    Of course no solution is perfect but burring your heads in the sand and
    sprouting hateful speech towards gun owners or Islamic people is not the
    way forward. We need to accept there is a problem with guns being so
    accessible and we need to accept there are those who take the Qaran
    literally and wish death upon gay people.

    There are good gun owners out there just like there are good Muslims out
    there, you can’t accept one and not the other, you are not a hipster
    liberal if you want tighter gun controls the same as you are not a racist
    because you critique Islam.

    This Second Amendment argument is not watertight. “A well-regulated
    militia” – what is well-regulated or militia-like about the current
    arrangement of gun laws? It’s clearly not well-regulated enough to save
    lives when required, and it’s certainly not a militia if there is no
    designated body of citizens who can access heavy weaponry. The Second
    Amendment and public safety need not be mutually exclusive.

    Criminalizing people who own guns is a big problem with all these people
    who are trying to push stricter gun laws. People are not just going to give
    up their guns. That means you have potentially hundreds of thousands of
    people who are going to be criminalized and possibly imprisoned, or simply
    gunned down in their own homes for “resisting”
