A gun amnesty solves nothing... the people that have them legally are not a problem to society.. they are law abiding people who..at least here in Canada are vetted daily by the RCMP.. it's the illegally obtained weapons that are at issue... and those won't be turned in

I see your point but it's just a shame that  it got to this point in the first place! Although quite a few illegal ones were handed over when we last had an amnesty! ! And that is the point of them after all.

The irony... You don't like to waste time, so why are you here? Willing to argue and waste your own time arguing with people having a laugh and joking around. You sir are extraordinarily sad. And you

Oi captain, have you ever considered letting people have funny little images in their heads? This was meant to be a little joke post from what I can tell, but you're over here taking it as seriously a

Don't ask me why, but I just saw myself tazering a moose, and I had to giggle. No, I don't think that would work.

It's a very complicated issue--the legally obtained guns are the root of the problem. No felon walks into a sporting goods store and and buys a shotgun for instance. They steal them from people who already bought them legally. Or buy them from private sellers who don't perform background checks. The law-abiding citizens are the unwitting source of the weapons that make it onto the black market. So you're faced with a problem where you block law abiding citizens from obtaining them, which causes an outrage because they are temporarily outgunned by the criminal element. Even if it is a fundamentally necessary part of an ultimate solution. You can't fix the problem until you cut off the supply...and unfortunately the supply is people who can rightfully own them. That's the crux of the issue.

not here they aren't... gun thefts from legal owners here aren't that common due to restrictive storage obligations.. our sole issue and the one the government won't address "because its hard" is the flood of guns that enter our country illegally from south of the border, its far easier to pick on an easier target like legal gun owners so the social media crowd thinks they are actually doing something

Please don't start arguing! this forum lately has turned into a full scale Jerry springer episode!  The only time a gun is a good thing is when you're about to get mauled,!🙂in game or real life!  

Im just glad that most people choose not to use them!

It certainly is getting worse , presumably because of recent events! It's a pity these situations don't bring out the best in everyone,when it's most needed! And I didn't mean to imply anything!

And unfortunately here, even that would result in a flurry of hooting and hollering about how it infringes on rights. You can keep a fully loaded shotgun propped up by the unlocked front door. A random passer-by can reach in and grab it, blow away a random stranger, and whoops! Not your fault because you didn't pull the trigger and can't be held liable for it being stolen.

It's absolutely bonkers. But yeah, holding gun owners accountable for what happens with their weapons would encourage them to either lock them down harder, or perhaps abstain altogether. So that might be a good start, if you could convince politicians to agree on even that much. It's absolutely terrifying how rarely guns are secured, and when they are, just how poorly. Case in point, I picked my uncle's basement gun safe open using scrap scavenged from that very room just to prove a point.

Edit: Oh and his response? "Well if it's that worthless, guess I won't bother locking them up." N...no, that is the wrong lesson here my dude...

they should add one more firearm in ep 4 when you get spotted they fire a gun at you thats not a rifle or a relvoler that would be cool maybe a glock

Personally I'd like lots of firearms! But I'm very trigger happy! In game only of course!

If I had a tazer I would throw it into a fish pond and all the fish would die and float up. Easy fish.

Actually that'd just short the battery and ruin the taser. Fish wouldn't even notice.
