I dont think theres one answer to the question-

u got cheap ammo comin from eastern europe (russia/albania etc.)

den u got afghanistan/

and then you got america....

youths usually get it off their elder peers....where do the peers get em from?

i heavy part of the reason is were you grow up..........if you 10 or 12 years old growin up in the projects........and you know some of the big cats on the block.....you got a good chance of gettin your hands on a 9....especially if you want money

but if you 10 or 12 growin up in the suburbs........the only thing you gettin is a fuckin skateboard........ya'll feel me??

mass media bigs up guns
effecting the youth consciously and sub consciously

in any form of media, guns are shown as a way to instill fear in some1/ set of people
then gettin what u want from them..

now the question is..

who benefits from the guns on the street

true the benifactors are the main cause so is miseducation and false perception that guns are means of truth in the streets

guns give the false sense of power to the socially impotent, thereby passifying them.... along with other tools such as organized religion, alcohol and drugs, and other such anesthetics...

manufacturer to dealer to trafficker to the streets
sometimes illegal importation
sometimes can be multiple trafficking channels

gun dealers have been associated with largest amount of diverted guns

also gun shows are a easy place for trafficking/purchasing on the low

bug repellant
mouse traps
nuclear weapons

these are all symptoms of a state of mind that you can solve problems by killing things

this is not true

you can not solve problems by killing things

I partially blame >some< hiphop for >some< of the gun problem here in America. I mean, it's no coincidence that once gangsta rap came on the scene violence escalated.

That was a case of art imitating not life imitating art.

As long as you stay broken, aint nothing gonna get fixed..
In 50 years time your natural instinct will be that of a killer.

guns on the street how?

well they are stollen out of homes and stores
and sold on the streets
after a kill or 2 they will be passed along for resale

and the guns that are taken away from the popo are going back on the street cuz
we got crooked cops
selling them to make extra money

imports ...terroist.....can happen though the borders that arnt coverd ...big rich guys trying to get richer import the illigle weapons and sell to street king pins

that how guns get on the street..it ant hard to get a gun with a body on it
alot of guns get resold by the street thugs and thats y most guns cant be found couse they are going to diff peeps all the time

09-30-2005, 06:46 PM

09-30-2005, 07:03 PM
I think you need something to defend yourself these days... I don't like guns. Guns are dangerous & people are crazy.

Where I live = Texas

09-30-2005, 07:59 PM
I don't like guns for the purpose of self defense or to inflict harm on other people.

But I love guns, always did since I was like 6 my uncles had stacks of gun magazines I used to stay reading em. I go to the shooting range alot, I used to have guns but they got confiscated. I just love em, they are beautiful weapons.

all the people i know who carried guns were people who used to get beat up on the daily

you have to be a very scared person to carry a gun

weaken the will and make subserviant to instinct to kill, blind and dull the intellect so quick tempers can play judge and jury. posit that more gun crimes in poor areas so more guns around because cops only come after crime done so get a gun and answer cops second.

the local precinct ?

Guns don't provide security, they provide insecurity.
Who wants insecurity?

I thought it was the 'law abiding" gun buyers who sell them to criminals for some profit on the side who put guns in the streets.
