The death tolls change, the locations vary, but public mass shootings remain a constant in the United States. According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been 12,504 gun deaths in the country this year alone, and even though mass shootings only account for a tiny fraction of this number (307 or 2.5%), these incidents have left the whole country terrified of their wild unpredictability.

The victims of these shootings were innocent people who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. This has led many activists to question U.S gun laws, saying that 89 firearms per 100 residents isn't normal. Moreover, a cross-section study found that of all the 50 states, the six states with the strictest gun control had lower suicide rates. Another paper also pointed out that children living in states with stricter gun laws were safer. The list of scientific studies backing-up gun control are numerous, but some people still vehemently disagree with this evidence and argue that guns don't kill people, people do. They also like to spice up the gun control debates by stating that such measures would violate their 2nd amendment rights.

A review of published studies on gun control facts released in October 2003 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was unable to determine any statistically significant effects that would result from such laws, either. It's clear this ongoing debate among Americans isn't slowing down anytime soon, just take a look to the savage roasts on Twitter. However, within the many, many tweets that discuss this subject matter, there are some that lack reason and logic. Luckily, people instantly call them out with perfectly good comebacks. And, to our delight, sometimes they use sarcasm and humor to do so. This time, check out a compilation of some of the best comebacks to pro-gun activists and share your own opinion on the matter in the comments.

As a teacher, you, Mr. President, are an idiot. I did not go into this profession to be in live combat situations or be a “highly talented” with weapons. I wanted to teach children not be a bodyguard. This argument is the dumbest “solution” to our problem.

Teachers should be able to teach without being compelled to arm themselves, giving students the opportunity to get their hands on those guns. Worst idea ever. Address the PROBLEM, lack of regulations.

How about... Defensive alone won't work, and offensive isn't working either... HEY! What if we completely avoid both, and tighten gun control? Donald Trump: "NO WE MUST FIGHT GUNS... WITH GUNS! hey, while we go about it we can give teachers guns and add more chance of catastrophes happening?" Me:... WHAT?!

Lucille McGuillicuddy

How do you think this will cause more catastrophes? Please explain. Also, Trump said nothing about fighting guns. We are fighting the people wielding them to cause harm to innocent individuals. There is nothing wrong with a legally owned firearm used in self defense. If someone is attacking you with a gun, what do you think has more chance of stopping them, a gun or words?

How about requiring a background check and license to buy and own bullets, ordnance? No bullets, no gun worry. That way, the morons get to keep their precious Second Amendment right to bear arms. Second Amendment says nothing about the right to bear bullets.

Wow. Because teachers don't go crazy. Because teachers would walk around with the gun attached to their bodies, safeties on. Oh, I see chaos here. One suggestion I read was fire extinguishers. The teacher can use it to spray the gunman and hit them over the head, etc... and put out fires.

I dunno, what happens when the police come in and the shooter is already incapacitated and there are fewer casualties to boot? Or, what happens if the police never have to come at all because shooter are deterred from attacking in the first place? I prefer those scenarios personally. These scenarios are only possible if we allow our teachers to carry legally owned firearms.

Carol Emory

That is a sensible response. And to point out a further problem to Trump...a sicko is not in their right mind. They don't care about themselves anymore. The need to cause destruction is greater than their desire to live through it. And these aren't just random shootings that happen at schools. Most of the time the shooter is someone who attends the school or knows someone in the school.

Chris Sprucefield
Community Member

A moron shooter won't put their hands in the air and the gun on the floor, following proper interaction and protocol. You will soon discover who is who... and in a school, if you see a kid with a gun, you have a pretty good idea who is who... Never mind the guy standing up, holding a gun, pointing it on the guy on the floor, yet, not pulling the trigger, and immediately yielding when police arrive. Couldn't be any giveaway clues, could it?

Really, most stupid argument ever. If there would be armed person when the police comes all would be already over (possibly with much less body count than alternative when there everybody is defenseless). Such cases usually happen very fast, usually much faster than just waiting until the police comes and just counting dead during the time.

If the teacher holding the gun is a black man, he's probably going to be murdered by the cops.

Yeah when the government wants to constantly defund education and teachers barley make enough to survive, maybe we should do the cheaper thing and pass common sense gun control, fund mental health programs, and vote out these politicians that are either in the pocket of the NRA or are too lazy to do anything about the problem.

Well Laura if you speak to teens/people the way that you do don’t be surprised when they fire back. Teens are people. Age means nothing. You can be a kind, smart, considerate, and passionate person at any age. You can also be a small-minded, ignorant, self-important bigot at any age as well.

A terrorist attack just occurred in Bourke St, Melbourne Australia, centre of the city.He used a knife. One man killed, two injured. Passerbys attempted to slow him down with a shopping trolley,witches cones. He was shot by police. One death was one too many, but could you imagine the carnage he could have wrought if he had been armed with a ak-15?

I'm British, and I still don't understand the need to arm everyone with guns, and I can't turn on the news without the story of another stabbing victim in or around London. Yes, we have an armed division of our police force, but they're only used in extreme circumstances. In America, you get a bullet to the head for carrying around a water pistol, or a Nerf gun.
