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.

No. She's pretending that anyone who wants gun control should be required to know as much about all the types of guns as gun fetishists do, or have no say about gun regulation. I'm not interested in all the makes and models and "stopping power" and whatever other BS people talk about at gun shows. I want people to STOP GETTING SHOT.

Australia managed it. After a serious mass shooting and pressed forward by police chiefs across the continent and by the then-newly elected prime minister they banned semi-automatic and other military-style weapons across the country. The federal government of Australia prohibited their import, and lawmakers introduced a generous nationwide gun buyback program, funded with a Medicare tax, to encourage Australians to freely give up their assault-style weapons. Many of them did. Australian independence didn’t end. Tyranny didn’t come. Australians still hunted. Their economy didn’t crash; Invaders never arrived. Violence, in many forms, went down across the country, not up. Somehow, lawmakers on either side of the gun debate managed to get along and legislate. It worked. A good example of how possible it is. It has to be a process but if you never start then the problem will only continue to get worse.

Let the idiot NRA keep their guns and their precious Second Amendment rights. Regulate and require a background check to buy and own ammunition, such as bullets and other ordnance, it will be completely Constitutional and will not break any laws. Use your heads people. The NRA won't be able to cry around about anybody taking away their right to bear arms. The Second Amendment says nothing about the right to pack bullets. Anybody making their own bullets without a license will pay a heavy price for owning restricted ordnance, lets say 10 - 25 years in the slammer, more than enough time for them to cool their heels. Responsible gun owners will support such a measure since they are already required to buy a driver's license, car insurance, etc. and they don't have to get a license or take a background check to own their guns. The best part is doing a background check for buying ordnance will also indicate whether or not that person should be a legal gun owner.

No guns should be available to the general public, background check or not without a genuine need, not just because people feel more comfortable owning one. There is no background checks on otheer people who may have access. Or the possibility of theft and them ending up in the hands of criminals and resold illegally. I just looked up - So far this year the US has had over 300 mass shootings. The UK has had 2 in the past 30 years.

Sort of follows suit here with the point originally made that you tried to clap back on. Seems that your selected men have no business being there if they don't know what they are doing. Good try bringing this back to female anatomy... but essentially I read this that you have multiple men who don't know how to take care of you. Sorry for your poor life choices.

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.
