The Problem With The Second Amendment Debate 2018 - Civil Discussion
Ryan Straight Up Playlist: goo.gl/mLq6oB
Over the past several the years the truth about the second amendment has been a debate that is not easily one! But there is a "common sense approach" - learning to have a civil debate!
there is a problem with civil discussion and the heads of our government are not helping in the situation! Civil Debate used to be something we could have with ease, but that is a thing of the past!
The 27 word 2nd amendment explained is not a task that can easily be handled! This is the problem with the second amendment 2018
The truth about the second amendment is that there is so much opinion on both sides, and neither side is willing to have a civil discussion about it!
The amendment problem is one that shouldn't even be on the table, we cannot repeal the second amendment, but we should be able to have a civil discussion about how we can appropriately tackle the issues of today! The problem with american politics is that there is too much politics... not enough listening, why do people not like to listen?
The meanings of words change with nuance and the problem explained in this video is the one of interpreting the second amendment meaning! Think of it as the second amendment for dummies!
thought remember this is just an opinion and not to be taken as the only way to interpret the 2nd amendment!
What do you think? Is the problem with the second amendment one that can be solved once and for all? or are we doomed to trying to interpret it forever!
In this video second amendment rights explained from me are only an interpretation of what i think! And what i thought the framers of the constitution thought! The second amendment debate is live and well and the battle for control is one not easily fought or won!
who is right? we may not ever know

True, and it's not just the gun debate. It's pretty much everything. I think the main problem these days is nobody wants to admit they might possibly be wrong, and anything that's said that lands outside that bubble of their opinion is demonized and written off as "stupid". I've said for a long time people are getting where they would rather appear to be right about something rather than actually be right, and if it takes convincing people of something that isn't true to make them look right they justify it in their head.
As for your other problem, I've been using Silkience formula for men lotion to mas... Oh, that was a joke, wasn't it. Never mind.
I know the gun debate is complicated, convoluted, and also heated. But I just wanted to state the "assault weapons" is a term coined with no definitive meaning, its interchangeable, in some debates it does in fact mean all guns. In the state of Illinois they just stated that all guns that are semi-automatic are "assault weapons". Semi-automatic guns have existed since 1885, the vast majority of pistols are semi-automatic. Ironically there are revolvers and shotguns which could be deemed more lethal and all/most of these arent semi-automatic at all. So some debates does in fact all guns and breaching the 2nd amendment.
Delaney Tarr, a spokesperson at the "March for our lives rally" said quote "When they give us that inch, that bump stock ban, we will take a mile.” Meaning there are people that do in fact want to inch away at the 2nd amendment right with the intent of repealing it altogether.
But I guess to you're point some people are so hot headed that they would much rather have a knee-jerk reaction and make an uninformed decision rather than sit down and learn all the facts or each other for that matter which I suppose was the focal point of this video XD
Regardless of your belief or opinion, I subscribed. I don't choose friends because of their beliefs alone lol!
Most people just block out everyone else's point of view because they're just waiting for their turn to talk, and most of the time, they don't even wait. Usually when people are so extreme on both sides, the TRUTH lies somewhere in the middle. But so many people believe in Absolutes! (Must all be Sith Lords) Very fair analysis bro. Comedy gives levity but theirs such a stubborn impenetrable shield of obtuseness it's impossible to be Acute. :)
I agree with this video like 100%!!! Both sides are spending so much time bringing each other down and calling each other names that nothing remotely constructive is brought up. Even I brought up my own opinion before on this issue and all I get screamed at me is repealing the 2nd amendment won't work....even though I didn't say to repeal it. Both sides are hearing what they want to hear and believing that its the right choice when it's not. This is a complex issue that will have a complex long-term effect that is going to have to deal with more than just Gun regulations.
Dude, I love your videos. Honestly, there is a way to meet in the middle about some of these gun issues. I for one don't think an assault weapon ban would do much of anything to curb gun violence. I think getting rid of gun free zones will help a lot with mass shootings. Pistols according to all crime stats are causing more damage to the public. It is weird that gun grabbers are going after the assault weapons. Assault weapons make up nowhere even in the same ball park for gun deaths. Look, at the end of the day, The 2nd ammendment regardless if you agree with it or not was written for the people as a last Stand to tyranny. I don't think tyranny is going on now but who's to say it won't happen in the future. However, I respectfully disagree with anyone who thinks that guns can't have common since regulations.
Let me think about how I want to frame my statement here...The terms "assault weapons" and "semi automatic weapons" get tossed around alot with the left side of the argument. Semi automatic is a term that can be applied to most firearms as it simply denotes that each trigger pulls fires a singular round and there is no necessity to manually draw back a hammer mechanism. The AR15, designated as an "Assault Rifle" is classified as semi automatic. Pull the trigger once and fire a single round. Now, when I was growing up, the rage on the left was to ban handguns and hi capacity magazines. Yet rifles and shotguns could be bought anywhere. The logic behind having the waiting period on the handgun and limiting handgun accessibility was that they were more compact, easier to conceal and therefore, in theory, more dangerous. This approach was not successful because handguns could be stolen and shotguns could be sawed off. When it came to limiting high capacity magazines, this was solved by something soldiers figured out ages ago, which is that you can use a little bit of solid tape to hold two magazines together to reduce reloading time. Now the focus has shifted away from handguns and gone onto "assault weapons" and high capacity magazines sales for assault weapons. This logic also fails because even semi automatic handguns can be fitted with high capacity magazines. In short, the measures that have been lobbied for to solve the issue do not work. Never have and probably never will. A gun does not have a brain. It does not have a will. It does not have sentience. It's purpose is decided by the individual that handles it. If we were to ban all firearms and the next big thing become roadside bombings, we would be crying out about the roadside bomb problem. The weapon isn't the issue. It's the individual. How do we take the individual away from the equation? They have a motive, they have anger, they have an objective. So what do we do to neutralize that? I'll leave at this: You're in a room with that person. There is a table in front of you with a handgun, a knife, a molotov cocktail and a hand grenade. You don't know their history and you are both told that killing someone is illegal. You are allowed to remove 2 items from the table but the stranger is instructed not to touch anything. You can only act in self defense and only if attacked. Once you take the two items, you must turn your back and walk slowly out of the room. (1) What two items do you pick? (2) Did the potential for you to die disappear once you picked them up and turned around?

I agree with this. I think that's the problem with politics in general nowadays. People get caught up in focusing on beating the other side rather then focusing on the main issue which is helping people and making things better. I get tired of hearing political parties complain about the opposing party. They have entire news channels devoted to pushing their party's political agenda, it makes me sad that even exists. I'm not a republican or a democrat, I just want the government to help its citizens, that'all. Its a simple concept, but they're too busy arguing over petty things. Children and teachers are being killed, the focus should be on making sure it never happens again, that's all. I'm not pro NRA or against, but I don't see why both sides can't work together to come up with decent laws that make sure this doesn't happen again.
Bath School disaster was the worest USA school violence and murder ever (5th largest in world), however no guns was used. 44 people was killed with 58 injured. It was committed by the school board treasurer. We have to also remember that the 2nd amendment is why we are the USA today, it was a basis for how we broke away from England to become our own country. I think if we focus more on fighting bullying we would see a drastic drop in violence (both with and without guns). I think around 30-40% of murders in America today never include the use of guns which tells us that if guns is removed we will just see a massive increase in murders by other weapons. Which brings us back to the focus on combating bullying etc would be a much more successful means to stopping violence.
The one thing I do not like is the ones from that one school acting like they are the only voice. I myself survived my attack. Back in the 1990's a student carried a fully loaded 9mm to school intending to murder a teacher. The student was in the bathroom with the window open over looking the teacher parking lot. I walked in and became the intended victim, numerous times at close range he tried to fire the gun at my face and head. The student was caught with the gun and the fully loaded clip. School only gave him 3 days suspension... the only thing that saved me was that the student was unable to get the safety off. To this day the teacher who I saved never thanked me or anything.
Hey man amazing video as usual left huge like on this video and I’m looking forward to the next one and I’ll be sure to check it out straight away keep up the good work also would you mind checking out my latest video as well it’ll be much appreciated
The biggest obstacle is people's stubbornness and the ability to listen fully, everyone is too busy looking for holes in each other's opinions and blindly assuming that anyone else's views but their own are wrong. Great video.
Too much pride on both sides. I watch friends and family debate this issue on facebook all day and all they do is piss each other off to the point where the posted such and such unfriended me. Can't we all just get along!
Great video man! I love your commentary on gun issues/rights. You're doing good and spreading great information with these videos. About the masturbating comment...try looking up a tutorial on here? I'm not sure if you'll find anything, I was lucky enough to find an old tutorial on VHS under my dads bed
I agree lately with everything political you're either a Regressive Feminist or Right Wing Nazi
*WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO TAKING THE FAIR MIDDLE GROUND?!?*
People are not just a,b, or c there's more to to people than just that.
I agree, but this also isn't a new problem....this has been an issue in society for decades....it's counterproductive for anything and everything. People get too entrenched in their opinions and echo chambers to consider other views.
I think civil discussion has stopped due to the rise of social media, it is now easier than ever to find people that share our views. Being balls deep in our own circle jerk echo chamber then leads to the general population (of expert level thinking) to believe that because they have loads of people around them who agree, they must therefore be right. Fortunately, the amount of people that believe or think something, doesn't affect whether that thing is true or not.
Nice and informative video, Ryan! I've noticed the ability to speak rationally about politics has gone by the wayside years ago. The flip-side to this is I find myself not wanting to talk about these kinds of issues especially at work as it's mentally exhausting and for one or the other not to bring emotions into what should be a facts-related discussion. The ability to actually listen and not just wait for your turn to speak isn't something that is easily taught.
It reminds me of the Megadeth song "Peace Sells but Who's Buying? which states: "If there's a new way, I'll be the first in line.... but it better work this time"
Listening to one another is the most important thing to discuss about important issues. I can never understand why they can't listen to one another. I can understand that they have their own opinions but listening to one another can easily fix the issue
The gun debate will never be civil when so much money is at stake. Fix the power that lobby groups have over the people in Washington. Then maybe those same people can start to listen to the other side instead of being blinded by the money that is flashed before their eyes.
Yo it's me DrumAli, I am seeing your videos after 1 month and that's a huge amount of improvement in a very short period time you just gained 1.5K subs in 1 month, I'm just missing that intro, and what happened to our Outro phrase "around the corner?" but anyways, I'm really liking the stickman Ryan animation, it is so gooooddd.... It adds a lot of personality flare. And I also love the few bits of touches here and there like the filters, the transitions and the overlays. Keep em up.
Part of the problem with public policy debate is that most of the time sides aren't telling the whole truth. The public has gotten all too familiar with promises like "No new taxes" or "If you like your health care plan you get to keep it." The public has learned to disregard these public claims and cling to fears, rational or irrational, as a justification. And I can already point to one fear that is totally rational and based on a claim that I will guarantee is a lie. It's the claim that "we're not coming to take your guns away." They state outright that they want an assault weapons ban, particularly one that includes the AR-15. Simply put, there's anywhere from 2 to 20 million of those rifles in circulation, we just don't know. A ban on the sale of new weapons does nothing to put a dent in that. So for that ban to have any teeth it's going to need to include some manner of confiscation program, most likely modeled after Australia's compulsory buyback program. But even if you dress it up with a smile and change it from the government going door to door to making the owners come to the government's door, it's still coming for your guns.
The other problem is that policy tends to happen in incremental shifts. You ask for an inch today. You ask for another inch two years down the road. Then you ask for another inch another two years down the road. In time you find that you're feet, even miles away from your original position. That's why the NRA digs in so hard against even the most modest change. The change you allow today to make the issue go away becomes the starting position of the next set of concessions demanded. If gun owners had some credible guarantee that the control measures they were agreeing to represented a permanent limit to what would be asked of them rather than a compromised position from which they'd have to give up more later they'd be a lot more open to a gun control measure today. But no such guarantee does or can exist.
"We dont want to take away your guns"
Well...then why do you want to ban "assault weapons" which millions of Americans have? Why did you try banning handguns? That led to the DC v Heller supreme court ruling in '08. Why are Democrats calling for the 2nd amendment to be repealed? Why is there currently legislation being proposed to ban semi automatic weapons (which are almost all weapons sold today)? Why do states have "may-issue" licenses? If I pass every test, every exam, every background check, and everything to get a license to carry, why can the state decide to not give me that license? Why?
This is why we cant have an honest debate. Because one side is fucking lying. "When they give us an inch, that bumpstock ban, we'll take a mile"
Well woopty fucking doo. I guess gun owners are just being paranoid amirite? Gun owners have compromised for nearly a century. Every couple of years more and more is taken away. First we had suppressors, short barrel rifles, shotguns, automatics, open bolt guns. Now they want to go after semi-automatic weapons. What's next then?
Maybe if you REALLY want to have an honest debate, don't call your opposition child murderers or tell them they have blood in their hands? I know it sounds really hard not being an emotional little cunt, but at least they could try.
Oh and yes if you're against "assault weapons" you're against the 2nd amendment. It's like saying "I'm for free speech...just not for hate speech". Both assault weapons and hate speech can literally be anything. You're either for owning SEMI AUTOMATIC WEAPONS or you're against the 2nd amendment. Plain and simple. Just like you're for keeping hate speech (because it's just as vague as the term assault weapons) legal, or you're against the first.
As things are now I'm not entirely sure there is a way for anyone to talk about his subject without someone getting severely butthurt because someone else's OPINION differs from there own. It would take people acting like actual CIVIL and POLITE ADULTS to talk about something like this. And like you said have BOTH sides come to a compromise and LISTEN to one another. Instead of trying to bully or shame the other side for having a different belief.
