If you don't own a gun, your house will be robbed, for real. Go buy a gun now!!!!

Hahaha... sort of. Maybe the little girl accidentally shot her mommy and the commercial didn't show that

Make sure you keep loaded guns within arms reach while you watch TV.

I actually support gun ownership; but commercials like these make it hard for the anti-gun people to to sympathize. Oh well.

Hahaha jesus they're taking the anti gun control thing seriously aren't they.

I mean, it's now illegal to have automatic and semi automatics in Australia- and damn hard to get a licence for anything else...

... but I'm not giving up my illegally obtained firearms <3

All the same though, I do approve of gun control.

murph...can't....process.....

I'm not sure I understand. You approve of gun control, but admit to illegally obtaining firearms. This doesn't jive with what my common sense tells me, which is

a) someone would purposely break the law if they disagree and don't approve of that law

or

b) someone would approve of and agree with a law and try to avoid breaking it.

so are you saying that you approve of a law that makes you a criminal for doing something that you want to and think you ought to do, or are you saying you approve of the laws but only think they should apply to other people, or are you saying you approve of the laws and think what you are doing is wrong but do it anyway for one reason or another?

I'm not trying to take you to task or flame you in any way, I'm just confused by your statement.

Maybe she just has some guns that she collects. Having a Glock 17 9mm isn't very cool at all...

But having a SIG P210 or a WW2 1911 would be sweet!

Anyways, I'll leave it up to Glam to explain

I'm against gun controls just because I don't feel some government stiff should determine what a citizen wants to do. While I don't approve of keeping guns within arms reach just itching to blow someone away; I do feel that if someone wants to feel safer in their home, they should be entitled to do so.

Uncle Jim-Bob with two 9mm Barettas under his pillow poses as much threat to me as some dude named Jessie who likes to ride around in his Suzuki Hayabusa. Assuming they stay within the "social safety laws" of not walking around shooting people or not riding around at 150mph on city streets... they won't harm me too much. If they do go nuts-o; well, no law written on some piece of paper is going to do much

what a crock of shit....Uncle Jim-Bob would never have two 9mm Berettas under the pillow...he would quite obviously be packing a .357 revolver and a pump-gun loaded with 00 Buck.

These videos were more depressing than funny.

It's like: "Look! We live in a society where we are so scared of being killed that we have to have guns under our pillows!"

The deeper problem: a society ruled by fear.

The scarier question: is American society is so rotten that it actually does need a gun under each pillow?

The individualism is also interesting. Each commercial stresses the individual response rather than the collective response. Instead of 'support your police department' or 'watch over your neighbourhood', it's 'arm up behind your personal fortress'. But I guess the latter messages don't sell guns for gun manufacturers.

Where are the commercials for solving the deeper issues behind violent crime? I guess Neighbourhood Watch doesn't have the marketing dollars as Smith & Wesson.

It's like having a campaign for giving every household masks for ebola rather than trying to eradicate the disease instead. What if people went around saying "it's not government's responsibility to prevent an epidemic, let's leave it up to each person to saran wrap their children."

It's an overused cliche, but order a pizza and call for the cops at the same time and see which one shows up first. In the "under the pillow" example the lady tries to call for help (I'm assuming that, but it seems obvious) and gets no response, and is faced with an immediate danger. An immediate threat requires an immediate response.

The individual response is appropriate in these examples, because how in the hell will you be able to "collectively" protect someone like that? A violent crime is an intensely personal act, and it happens in an instant. There's no ability to say "wait while I call the cops" or "gee, let's look into the roots of your sociopathy" to someone who is going to harm you.

Should we address the root causes of violence? Hell yes. But instead we get Democrats running around screaming "guns cause violence, take them away...it's not your fault if you're a murderer, society did it to you" and Republicans saying "there's no problem that a good jolt of electricity or a lethal injection can't solve...societal ills? liberal hogwash"

Of course, those are obviously exaggerations, but it makes my point.

government can only do so much. They can't force you to wash your hands before eating, nor can they prevent everyone that is infected from coming into contact with you. And unless there is a cure, they can't un-infect you if and when that happens. Just like all the public safety funding in the world can't un-kill you when the cops get to your house too late to save you.

You may prefer to leave your safety up to the state. I, personally, do not.In the US, we have had multiple court decisions that say the police are not obligated to protect you (arising from people suing the cops for not getting there on time). The government is responsible for taking steps to ensure the safety of society from common dangers, but when it comes to personal safety of an intimate nature (protection from violent crime) the individual is solely responsible.

If I choose to use a gun to fulfil that responsibility, what good does it do me to have it in an inaccessible place? Wouldn't I want it where I can get to it?

I guess he'd then poke your body with a shovel to make sure that you were dead
