i legitimately see no downsides to taking guns away from civilians like please someone argue with me about this because all that can possibly come from fierce gun control laws are positive things
“those who forget history are doomed to repeat it”
If an invading Army or abusive government doesn’t convince you, please, think about having guns for personal protection against a home intruder or rapist.
Apparently Miss USA is getting heat from online feminists for saying, when asked about the rape statistic: ”Myself as a fourth degree black belt, I learned from a young age that you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself and I think that’s something we should start to implement for a lot of women.”
And, of course, people got up in arms saying that women shouldn’t learn to defend themselves, men should learn not to rape. Which we all know is a BS argument, because rape is already seen as a horrible thing that is completely unacceptable in society. It’s like saying that we should teach people not to murder. It’s already common sense, and murders are going to murder anyways. Encouraging women to learn self defense should be seen as empowering, not as bowing to ‘rape culture.’
