    You can never enforce private sales being subjected to a check. unless all guns are registered-probably a dream of yours but its not gonna happen.


    They already have closed the loophole in some states. It will not be that hard to close them in the remaining states.

    That's quite an expense, although I think it's doable.

    Nothing hyperbolic about it. It's the truth and you're still defending your position taken because of a mass killing of children and 7 adults.

    Is it me or did I miss your previous anti-NRA threads prior to the shootings ?

    No you're doing the typical liberal selective ethics Kabooki presentation where you arbitrarily give your self way to much credit for the blatant exploitation of a mass murder.


    Just because you've found a way to justify it doesn't mean it's still not a pretty low life thing to do.

    How can an inanimate object be to blame?
    It doesn't have a will of it's own.

    Him blaming video games and movies is incredibly dumb, but so is blaming non living things.

    stupid people are not high on my list of people to take seriously.
    I'm not for banning guns outright myself. I'll admit it. Shooting guns is ****ing fun. As I said though in this thread, The folks who do this kind of mass crap are the biggest cowards ever. If they had to do it without a gun, it wouldn't happen. They could not face people down hand to hand or even with knife or machette. They could still plant bombs but they can't buy a bomb. They run a risk of getting caught just buying the materials and taking the time to assemble them.

    These things will still happen but without a gun in their hand, the spontenaity and the impersonal nature of taking someone down by a gun would help kill off the plans of a wimp. I still think all sorts of guns should be out there and we will not always keep them out of wrong hands. I'm not about to go all crazy with some gunless utopian society crap. I do however think that there is a conversation to be had about high capacity clips, assault rifles, non-hunting stuff like that. I don't see any need to ban guns outright. 4-10's, 10, 12, 20 guage shotguns. 30-30's, 30 aught 6, my dad's 303 British Enfield (with stock carved by my grandad that was stolen dammit)...

    that is not relevant, the issue is whether their gun bans were responsible for that-they are not

    Is it your opinion that that our society or yours benefits from a arbitrary exposure to blatant violence ?

    And guns ? Canada has the luxury of being America's Top Hat and pushing socialist ideology and policies that would be economically impossible if if were up to Canadians to defend their selves with any considerable self funded military.

    Before Texas became a conceal carry State we got to listen to the empty headed liberals tell us how our State would, because of our new law devolve into a Wild West style every man for himself nightmare.

    It didn't happen and in fact has led a society that has the means to protect itself from criminals who with or with out gun laws threaten our citizens.

    You'll never empty our country of firearms, especially when our politicians refuse to protect our Southern borders so give those who would abide by the existing laws and conform to their second amendment rights the chance to protect themselves and their families.

    Our kids get the same garbage as yours.
