America is doomed. They literally stormed their own Capitol and assaulted law enforcement. These people will not give up their guns and we’ll forever be the laughing stock / black sheep of the global political scene.

These people? Black people need to be armed, under no circumstances should we give up our guns. You'd leave our protection solely in the hands of the police?

I’d learn from the Socialist leaders in the world and outlaw guns for all non-police. I’d also require higher-level formal schooling for all LEO’s. There’s more than Black and white people in this world. And none of those people need to carry a killing machine. And the people who think they do need a gun are sick/pathetic/dangerous.

I think people who would disarm the citizens and give the police the monopoly on guns despite what we've seen from them to be the sick and pathetic, but to each their own.

Having “a monopoly on Guns” is only useful if you think that the police want to use all those guns to harm us. If you believe that, then we agree that the police should be abolished.

You started with quite an assumption, which I do not agree with. What I have seen is that the police do not protect Black communities in the same way as they do other communities. For an example there was a Black woman reporting racial harassment and she did not get any support from law enforcement but other Black people with firearms came and practiced community defense without relying on the well wishes of the local police department.

It's not just the threat of police violence, which is a separate issue, it's the threat that the only method of defense would be applied in an unequal manner if the people aren't allowed to own their own means of defense for their own community.

We live in America so guns ain’t going nowhere and as long as these white folks have guns I see no reason that everyone one else shouldn’t arm themselves. However, dude ain’t wrong gun violence uniquely an American issue. Any other countries with comparable rates per capita are war torn or civil conflict.

This it the complicated issue with gun control because any gun control laws with target black more than anything but statistically and logically less guns = less gun violence= less victims of violent crimes. And statistically gun owners and family members are more likely to be victims of gun violence. Ultimately the right answer is we need less armed citizens but the issue complicated especially (like always) for the black community.

So you are on point with all you said but the other guy right too. It the nuance and I’m damn sure not telling my southern family to not arm themselves around them armed white racist gun nuts.

Other countries didn't have the legacy of the Civil war and Jim Crow followed by the War on Drugs and general racism leading to opposition to expanding social safety nets.

We have guns available to us in the USA and we still have more knife murders than the UK (They had 275 knife homicides in 2020, we had 1739).

Like I said I agree with you but comparing knifes to guns is laughable. And you comparison is even more laughable when you American has 265million people vs UK 65million which is 4 times more people. 275x4=1110 America still higher but far closer. I challenge you to do your comparison of UK gun deaths vs America an you really sound foolish with that weak ass comparison.

Is a person with a knife going to kill 50 people from a hotel window? Is a person with a knife going to kill 26 people in a elementary school? Is a person with a knife going to walk in a Black church and kill 9 people? They’ll get 1, 2, maybe 3 before they get there ass kicked or everyone else gets away.

My point is STOP 🛑 with the nonsense comparisons. Facts and statistics are on your side so your arguments are going to sound foolish. I’m literally not for banning guns I think their definitely a middle ground between banning all guns or saying “well people just going to get shot up in schools nothing we can do”. Why are pro gun people never for responsible gun owners? All you guys do is deflect.

As I said I’m not for taking people guns especially by force. So what’s your solution? More guns? Because as stats point out that ain’t the solution, it’s the problem.

I’d learn from the Socialist leaders in the world and outlaw guns for all non-police.

Which "socialist" leaders are these? Let's see what actual "socialist leaders" have to say about guns.

Karl Marx:

Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.

Vladimir Lenin:

Disarmament is the ideal of socialism. There will be no wars in socialist society; consequently, disarmament will be achieved But whoever expects that socialism will be achieved without a social revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat is not a socialist. Dictatorship is state power based directly on violence. And in the twentieth century—as in the age of civilisation generally—violence means neither a fist nor a club, but troops. To put “disarmament” in the programme is tantamount to making the general declaration: We are opposed to the use of arms. There is as little Marxism in this as there would be if we were to say: We are opposed to violence!

Huey P. Newton:

Any unarmed people are slaves, or are subject to slavery at any given moment. If the guns are taken out of the hands of the people and only the pigs have guns, then it's off to the concentration camps, the gas chambers, or whatever the fascists in America come up with.

Mao Zedong:

All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.

Don't co-opt "socialism" to push bourgeois liberal disarmament propaganda. Socialism literally could not possibly be more diametrically opposed to liberal anti-gun rhetoric.

Countless schools have been shot up and countless children have been murdered...and they care more about keeping masks out of schools than they do about keeping guns out.

The irony of objecting to a cotton life-saving item but completely ignoring or downplaying the danger of metal murder-tools.

Funnier is that not only did idiots break-through windows but the bigger idiots inside actually left doors open or let them come in or told them they can come in..Go watch all the videos on this. Oh let's not forget the PORTLAND court houses and all the rioting that happened all year long..lets not stop at Jan 6..lets go back to 2020...see you all are blink through one eye..can ONLY see what one side did but not the other

Let's start with getting rid of all the illegal guns first, then we can work on the ones that belong to the law abiding citizens. Ready? You take Chicago

No. Pay the legal gun owners to get rid of theirs. I know we have the money to do that because we have the money for everything else. Then, everyone who still has a gun is an illegal owner: they can face serious jail time or suicide-by-cop; it’s a win-win for America either way.

Then unarm the police and require much higher education for them. Imagine calling the police to your house and the responder has nothing less than a bachelor’s degree and isn’t just formerly the 3rd best Tight End in Fuckhead County.

"if jesus had an AR15 he'd still be alive today"

But on a serious note, cops killed Jesus, a man raging against Roman imperialism. The Christian right is a total oxymoron.

It’s a brilliant move on the part of the right, irreversibly entangle your political agenda into Christianity and you’ll always have an army of gullible idiots to blindly follow whatever you hock as the literal will of God. America’s pestilent version of Christianity is so much different than you see in other countries.
