Who's missing?
There are only 14 countries listed. It's missing at least dozens of other countries

Yup it would be much better to allow a shooter to keep shooting until the cops show up, 5 minutes later.
He was just explaining why teachers don't want to. Are you advocating forcing teachers to carry?

Amex will do it for any card as long as it hasn't been put into the system to send it out yet. Meaning, that no matter which card, you're out of luck if its after approval. However, you can try asking for an expedited authorized user if you like

with the coupon it becomes worthwhile again.
Basically. Some of the prices are close to 25 percent more than in store

If they won't even have a debate you can be sure they will never allow a vote.
True, but having a debate in the house won't lead to having a vote if there is no political will. It's more of a symptom of public opinion than a cause

Do I agree every time you pull the trigger a round is fired, yes. What is your point?

We have many gun problems in this country. You can't lump them all together.
I'm trying to understand why assault rifles are more dangerous than handguns. Maybe you can explain it. I understand what the problem is with bump stocks, but what's the issue here?

That actually does make sense.

The issue isn't the logic, it's the reality.

In reality, semiautomatic handguns and semiautomatic rifles fire one bullet for each pull of the trigger.

Barring slight differences of trigger pull, different mechanisms, etc. they all shoot at roughly the same speeds. (The main limiting factor being how fast the person pulls the trigger.)

So in terms of practical fire rate they're the same deadly.

Edit: I was answering you in the form of arguendo, as your question is logical. I'm showing, that even assuming your logical assumptions, once you know the realities you wouldn't consider one as deadlier due to practical fire rate.
@chaimmoskowitz do you agree with this? If so why would you say assault rifles should be banned any more than handguns?

I also don't know much about guns, but I've leaned from this thread that no, despite the preponderance of mass shootings being done with AR-15s and the like, there was one deadly shooting with a handgun, so they're all equal.
Sounds like a good lomdus

Oh. I would guess that most people from Cleveland on the forum ate from the East side

I don't know much about guns, but doesn't it make sense that something that can fire off more bullets quicker will be more deadly?

Ok I am confused as usual. What type of smell are you talking about? Clothes, bad breath, body odor or something else?
I would imagine either clothes or body odor, however, I was assuming that it was a smell which comes from certain foods, as it did not smell like conventional body odor (ie sweat)

Ok...
"No person shall ... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law"
Slaves were considered property.
Seriously?

I think it was mentioned upthread

Last I checked, freedom of expression is a core freedom, characteristic of every democracy. How you would police every game, video, movie etc. and decide what could and can't be published is a question best answered by totalitarian regimes.
 The "right" to bear arms is a wrinkle unique to America.

The USA used to have other constitutionally enshrined "rights" as well, such as the right to own a human being. These were eliminated as part of a culture change. Other "rights" never before imagined have been read into the Constitution by the courts.

Slowly, (glacially slowly) the mood in the country is changing.

It will take time, but gun control will  eventually be like Gay marriage.
Not sure if this was supposed to answer my point. Not disagreeing that it's hard to police video games, but it would be very difficult to confiscate all guns as well. Obviously, the Constitution could be changed, but I don't think that's realistic, or that most normal ppl want that. Who cares what other countries feel should be a protected right?
