Is it reasonable to believe guns exist?
« on: March 18, 2021, 04:00:40 AM »
So, what do you guys here think, is it reasonable to believe that guns exist? I am not sure. People around me are telling me guns exist, but that I cannot get one myself to check that because the police in Croatia, where I live, somehow prevents the civilians from owning guns, for some reason that escapes me. So, there is either a conspiracy of American movie-makers making people thing guns exist, or there is a conspiracy of the police somehow preventing people from getting guns to see for themselves that they exist. What do you think is more likely?

It's only anecdotal evidence, but when I was a kid, I was taught how to shoot a gun.

I've held a pistol and fired it. Guns are real.

That, and I live in a conceal & carry state, i.e., you can have a firearm on your person so long as it isn't showing, so I actually see a fair number of firearms because people here aren't really bothered by them and they're not very good at hiding them anyway.

Guns are actually small dragons that were too tiny to hunt humans so evolved into gun shapes to easier sate their evil bloodlust for human flesh.

Accidental shootings are no accidents, let me tell you. 

So no, guns do not exist. But dragons do.

Ask a Croatian policeman to shoot you so that you will know with absolute certainty whether or not guns exist.

There are several mysterious looking things in a safe in my house, but I can't be sure they're guns.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

A few pieces in a safe is one thing. I think you need upgrade from a safe to a gun lounge, being FLA and all:

It is unknowable if guns really exist as they are always the last thing you see before it kills you.

Perhaps when scientists develop the technology the communicate with the dead then we'll know.

Guns and Roses exist,  I have some of their music.  As to whether Guns can exist without Roses is another matter.  Maybe dragons are involved as JJA has discovered.

Ha ha ha, this is actually pretty creative.

I am going to investigate with my many number of "dragons". If I never return let it be known JJA was right and I knew too much.

Well, policemen in Croatia are usually not armed. And when they are, if they shoot me, they will end up in jail, obviously, so they are not willing to do that.

When they are armed, what are they armed with? Obviously it's a thing that shoots, based on what you wrote.

Unclear as to the validity of the source, but you can check the reference (327):

Croatia
Croatia issues firearms permits for self-defense, hunting, sport shooting:

- Hunting permits require a certificate indicating successfully passing the hunting exam;
- Sporting permits require a certificate issued by a target shooting organization on active membership;
- Self-defense permits require a proof of danger to life.
- Every permit also requires an applicant to be at least 18 years old, not be convicted of crimes, there being no other circumstances indicating that the weapon may be abused (for example by a history of alcoholism) and passing medical examinations.

As of October 2020 there 99,829 legal gun owners in Croatia. 14,711 people can own and carry firearms for the purpose of personal safety.[327]
