Sorry, was going to but I couldn resist the chance to quote that :). Well you said you wanted a proper rebuttal, well here it is:

Canada Goose Outlet Firstly the most obvious issue with this crazy scheme is the basic cost. Do you realise how much it would cost to give every citizen a handgun and training? Lets do a quick estimation of just the cost of issuing everyone a gun, using the US as an example. In Canada Goose online 2016 the canadian goose jacket population of the US over 18 Canada Goose Outlet was calculated to be approximately 249.5 million. Lets say the government is cheaping out(hey most of the pistols aren even going to get shot more than once or twice!) and is able to buy them for $250 a piece. That would cost sixty two Canada Goose sale billion cheap Canada Goose three hundred seventy five million dollars. That almost as much as the Department of Education budget (about $68 billion). Considering how much debt the US is already in that price is going to be hard to swallow and that doesn even include ammunition or training costs! And if it going to suffer from the chronic issue that the military suffers from as well, bloated costs of items far higher than it original value, that only going to exasperate the issue.

canada goose clearance sale And the claim that this would reduce crime or whatever is plain wrong. It makes the assumption that people always act rationally. We don That why we always hear in the news about crimes of passion canada goose coats on sale or stupid ways to die etc. You are basically giving a giant group of stupid bickering monkeys (Homo Sapiens) guns and hoping they stop fighting because of the increased stakes. In fact it would increase strain on emergency services as drunken fist fights turn into drunken shootouts, public protest and counter protest clashing into a game of https://www.canadagooseoutletmall.com team deathmatch, every house raid into a massive SWAT operation. you get my point. When Hiram Maxim invented the machine gun he believed that there would be everlasting peace as no one canada goose uk black friday would ever want to see and deal with the horrors of such a powerful weapon. Look how “right” he was!

canada goose black friday sale Now there a still much more issues with your universal arming of the citizens such as logistical, enforcement, regulation, etc but those are my two main argument and I would need someone better at articulating canada goose arguments to deal Canada Goose Coats On Sale with the uk canada goose rest.

And with your “give nukes to everyone” plan, are you sure about that? Are you sure giving nukes to unstable countries like Syria is a good canada goose coats idea? Are you sure the nukes aren going to fall into the wrong hands like ISIS? Are you sure forcing nations which can even feed its own people to maintain an expensive arsenal of nukes is a good idea?

One rogue nation with nuclear capabilities is already a massive cause of concern. Now canada goose store imagine all of them have one.

You assume the government would give it to them, instead of just mandating they buy it. I think forcing them to buy would be retarded (look how that worked for Obamacare), not to mention canada goose uk outlet unreasonable, but it is technically an option.

canada goose store That would cost sixty two canada goose clearance billion three uk canada goose outlet hundred seventy five million dollars. That almost as much as the Department of Education budget (about $68 billion).

canada goose coats According to Wikipedia, the Department of Education does sweet fuck all. It does not:

canadian goose jacket Create new schools or universities.

Canada Goose online Set the school curriculum (this is done by the states/districts).

Accredit any schools or universities (this is done by non profit organizations).

Really, the US could abolish the Department of Education and be no worse canada goose clearance sale off. It would certainly free up all the money needed to give everybody a gun.

Canada Goose Parka Of course, we could just do the gun thing at the state level, and let the feds keep that $68 billion to pay off their debt.

It makes the assumption that people always act rationally. We don it assumes we act in self interest, which almost everybody does. If I shoot some guy in a bar where everybody is armed, he and every other patron will shoot back, and I probably Canada Goose Parka get killed. That not rational, that just fear of death.

buy canada goose jacket cheap You are basically giving a giant group of stupid bickering monkeys (Homo Sapiens) guns and hoping they stop fighting because of the increased stakes.

No, buy canada goose jacket cheap the stupid ones will kill each other. The ones left behind will stop fighting because canada goose black friday sale of the increased Canada Goose Jackets stakes.

And with your “give nukes to everyone” Canada Goose Online plan

You mean “sell”. Those things are fucking cheap canada goose uk expensive.

canada goose Are you sure giving nukes to unstable countries like Syria canada goose factory sale is a good idea?

Of course it not, which is why I wait until Assad reclaims total control of Syria. Then he can get some nukes, and maybe that will discourage the USA from launching any more missiles at him.

Are you sure the nukes aren going to fall into the wrong hands like ISIS?

canada goose clearance ISIS? You mean those guys Assad just nuked out of existence with the weapons we sold him?

Canada Goose Jackets Are you sure forcing nations which can even feed canada goose jackets its own people to maintain an expensive arsenal of nukes is a good idea?

Canada Goose sale We can “force” other countries to get nukes, nor do I think force would be necessary. What shithole country wouldn pay through buy canada goose jacket the nose for some nukes, even if they outdated models that would get shot down in an instant?

canada goose deals You assume the government would give it to them, instead of just mandating they buy it. I think forcing them to buy would be canada goose uk shop retarded (look how that worked for Obamacare), not to mention unreasonable, but it is technically an option.
