Just a newbie here on 4/22/2018 9:33:04 PM

:) Welcome!

If you have the time, I recommend you check out some of the awesome stories on the site.

I will use copy and paste to recommend what I just recommend your fellow newbie Ultimate_Reader:

I especially recommend the works by BerkaZerka, Ogre11, and EbonVasilis. So far I have only been able to read some of each of their impressive works in the limited time I am here. I suspect all their works are awesome!

BerkaZerka’s Dead Man Walking (Zombie Survival) is extremely well written [I managed to get the best possible ending!] and kept my eyes glued to the phone I use (though it does have violence/gore and some language), he has also got great puzzles and games (Some of which I have still not completed. They’re awesome!). Ogre11’s awesome works I have read/played so far include: Spy Mission (You gotta see the different endings), Cryogenic Failure (Again, you gotta see the different endings), UFO at School, Alien Abduction. Of EbonVasilis’s works, so far I have read his epic A Chosen Hero (I’ve got to read more of his works!). I have also played cMitchell3’s Get out Alive, read Will11’s true story Climbing Beyond The Clouds, read MinnieKing’s inspirational message Addition, and read the short mouse hero story by pinkalily21, Alone in the Forest. There are great writers and future great writers to be found on this site.

I hope you have great fun on the site!

:) I am always up for a good cause. Is there a way I can help with my limited skills?

:) Path of Life... I like the title. Those pictures hint at something epic. Is there any way I can help with my limited time here?

It would be nice if this site became more family oriented.

I am sorry Steve, but this sounds an awful lot like you are projecting yourself onto others. What BerkaZerka posted is completely accurate and easy to verify if you have internet access.

I tried to help you because you occasionally had a reasonable argument, and I thought you were open to reason. I am sorry I failed, perhaps when you are older and wiser you will see the light.


Thoughts on gun control on 4/18/2018 3:03:28 PM

I am starting to think Steve24833 doesn’t actually read anything I post, just glances at it probably. And keeps repeating the same thing. I was actually reading what posts I answered. There are too many gaps in Steve’s logic: I don’t think I can be much help to this person.

I think it is ironic that Steve will complain about a minor gaffe in how something is written, when he/she actually has more gaffes in their posts here than I do. There is also such irony hidden in the first paragraph: “...before having a position on a topic, you should try try to understand said topic.”

I don’t want to be rude to anyone, but if I come across rude I apologize. I take so long to reply I lose sleep when I do. I will try to come back later to answer more posts.


Thoughts on gun control on 4/18/2018 1:55:52 PM

I have heard that you have to get a license and background check to get a gun.

I didn’t realize there were still a lot of people who didn’t know about the giving guns to the cartels. This was way worse than the watergate scandal, in my opinion, because innocent people died. https://nypost.com/2013/12/01/book-excerpt-how-america-gave-guns-to-mexican-drug-cartels/

Human rights are very important, you would not want people to be enslaved, which is what happens when you take away their freedom. Not infringing on other people’s rights is important, which is why a small government is a necessary evil. (I would argue that the federal government is actually bigger than it needs to be.)

The founders saw the development of very modern guns for their time. I don’t see why you would think that the founders would think there would never be any new advances in guns and what not.

Unless you think enslaving people is for the betterment of society, then no, gun control was not created for the betterment of society. Obviously, we don’t want crazy people doing evil stuff so that is what the small government is for.

I would say stuff from evil origins is most likely bad. Though I wouldn’t use that alone to condemn something. The whole history of gun control is bad. And if we can’t learn from history we are bound to make the same mistakes again. [By the way, they didn’t want freed slaves to have guns either, not just those who were still slaves.]

I don’t get what you are saying about the statistics. For example, I know exactly what they meant when they said the myth about Japan. They mean Japan does not have a less violent society because of gun control. Though, now that I think about it they should have made that clearer.

I suppose they would not list all the deaths from driving under the influence as violent crime, but that doesn’t change the fact that more people die from these deaths than from gunshot wounds.

Socialism is actually a dangerous philosophy, for it is from socialism that we get fascism and communism, which have created the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century. I know socialism sounds like a great idea, in practice however, all it does is concentrate power in a small area. And when those of this small group mess up it affects a lot of people. I think we have too much socialism in America already. The road to a really bad place is paved with good intentions.

About the causes of crime, I think mental health and that other stuff are factors like you said, but I also think broken families is a major factor: http://marripedia.org/effects_of_family_structure_on_crime

Canada doesn’t really have free speech, neither does England and probably some of the others you mentioned. It might not be as bad as Germany or Sweden (it is a crime to insult someone in Sweden), but it gets closer every day. http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/08/27/canadian-hate-speech-proposal-threatens-free-speech/

People who have never tried to buy a gun (legally), usually don’t know how hard it is to get one. I suspect that the cartel’s could probably smuggle guns illegally into the U.S. without too much trouble though, since the Obama administration gave them a bunch of guns [why?!?] as part of some weird plan to bring down the cartels. I think we should make it less difficult for good, responsible people to get guns and make it more difficult for bad guys.

The Constitution can be amended; human rights, especially the bill of rights, were supposed to never be taken away. The government was supposed to be granted only a few powers, a “necessary evil.” The states and the individual were supposed to have the rest. The founders actually had a good idea of what guns would be like in the future, and they allowed guns that are not allowed today. https://www.quora.com/What-were-the-most-advanced-arms-available-in-1791-the-year-that-the-Second-Amendment-was-passed

Gun control was actually created to suppress people. When you take away the right of a person to defend themself you are denying them a human right and making them less free.  https://www.firearmsandliberty.com/cramer.racism.html Slave owners did not want the slaves to have these rights.

The statistics I saw showed an increase in violent crime in correlation with gun banning. Which makes sense if you think about it, because the criminals will know the law-abiding citizens have turned in their guns, and they will no longer be afraid to attack people or do other bad stuff.

The cartel already had a bunch of guns even before they were given more, they kill people all the time and it is rarely mentioned in the news. Another thing that is rarely (if ever) mentioned in the major news networks is the ton of people saved by guns all the time. http://mobile.wnd.com/2005/09/32103/
