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.

I once had a rather funny discussion with an american that didn't believe "assault rifles" existed as a separate class. Never mind that the first one literally translates from german as "assault rifle". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StG_44

A law with a HUGE loophole. It prevents you from buying a gun but lets you keep any you currently own.

Also, if you are not married, cohabiting, or coparenting it doesn't count as domestic violence and you can still have guns.

Animal abuse is illegal as well, but rarely prosecuted (and almost all who are prosecuted were not violent toward animals, but more extremely neglectful, i.e. people who kept animals in squalid conditions or underfed). Given the lack of prosecution, restrictions on owning firearms for an animal abuser is frequently seen as virtually unenforceable.

...So is it just not enforced?

DE Ray
Community Member

Typically not. Or extremely lax enforcement - given that there is no registry, an abusive person can claim to have given any firearms away to friends and family. Federal regulation of guns sales often doesn't check in with local police, so a person on this restricted list may even be able to purchase a new firearm. Or if they buy from an individual rather than a store, there is no check whatsoever. If they get caught, there is a penalty - but often the only way they get caught is after they have shot at someone.

Yeah, if you're convicted of domestic assault you can't own a gun.

Yes, because convicting someone of domestic violence works, right? Do you know that to get a restraining order (temporary, 2 weeks) the victim has to pay $98, be at the courthouse fill out forms, stand in line to get form stamped, stand in another line to pay, back to the first line again to get a copy of the paperwork and prove you paid, by 9:30 am, then wait until 10:30 to go into a courtroom where everyone else filing is sitting, along with anyone else who wants to be there, (including the person they are afraid of) prove they are afraid (re:at least one police report, no witnesses allowed), then pay $35 plus mileage for the order to be served? To press charges, you have to have a witness to the abuse (someone in the next room listening or seeing immediate after effects, red handprints on your neck, etc., do not count) and/or actual bruises (even these may be questioned) to even start the process.

So, you realize that this is an argument AGAINST more gun control, right? We already have a law that bans people convicted of domestic violence from owning a gun. So now we can rest easy, knowing that no spousal abuser can ever commit a gun crime. Right? If there is a law against it, it can't happen, right? Just like if we banned law abiding citizens from owning guns, shootings like this couldn't happen. They ought to try some gun control laws in California, so they don't have any shootings there. Seems so easy, feels so good!

We have a law against drinking and driving. Does the fact that people still do it means we should just scrap the entire thing? We have laws so police can hold people accountable and charge them for crimes and people can sue them.

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.
