I have lectured ABA accredited law school's classes and alumni (ie licensed attorneys, judges, law professors, and prosecutors) on 2A subjects I have been consulted on Law review articles on the issue and QUOTED on the floor of congress by an ANTI gun congressman who conceded an argument I raised in an article was well taken.

    so rather than pretend who is expert why don't you just answer my question since I already set forth my position on proposed and current gun control schemes

    So..how about it...all for life sentences for violent criminals that use a firearm in the commission of a violent crime, right? Notice...that requires NO new gun laws...just harsher sentences for EXISTING gun laws. You know...like what caused the criminals to rethink their strategy in Japan.
    If people really want to be serious about such crimes a life sentence for someone using a firearm in a violent crime would be a major step. Take it one more step to anyone committing a crime with a gun on them receiving a life sentence and people are really going to think twice about it. Of course then we have criminals using knives and other weapons but that can be sorted out too.

    gun restrictions tend to have little if any impact on the latter but impacts the latter a great deal. We can only conclude that those who push for gun laws are either ignorant of that fact or intend to obstruct legal gun ownership for reasons that have nothing to do with crime control
    I made clear I am very much pro gun. I just happen to be anti stupid arguments, as well

    You realize a change in penalties would require a functional and textual change to "gun laws"?
    Ah! So...finally. Common ground! No new laws...but life sentences for violent criminals using firearms. Right? That's the 'change' you want.

    At least he has some new buddies that share his vision.
    MANY PEOPLE are uneasy when there is a question that they cannot answer. Like why do little kids get cancer or why did nice people get killed by some nut case for no reason. IN order to banish that feeling of unease, they feel a need to DO SOMETHING even if its worse than leaving things as they are. Its like putting a tourniquet around the neck of someone who is suffering a head wound.

    I completely agree. By then as soon as you go that route the anti gun people go very limp. After all...it's not the poor dears fault.

    sorry I don't believe you. we have had another poster who makes the same specious claims. He whines about "bad" pro gun arguments but never ever attacks the far far more idiotic emoto babbling hoplophobic nonsense we see from people who aren't even honest about why they want to impose more gun laws

    1) making an appeal to popularity hardly helps your already tenuous position. And the fact that you're citing other gun advocates hardly disproves my claim that you're simply singing to the choir here

    2) No, you clearly did not know what you were talking about after a claim of expertise. See here:

    Then you have done yourself a disservice here. Because you have done little to address any opposing argument here, besides attempt to insult, divert, and sloganeering.

    because it is/was an obvious attempt to divert from the point we were discussing.

    It might deter some-mainly because once in prison they cannot prey on those who are on the outside

    but I remember seeing an interview of a mope who got 15 years for being caught with a pistol in a drug bust

    he said "If you (referring to the cops) catch me with this beretta I get 15 years. If Tommy's boys (the rival coke gang's leader) catch me without a piece I get eternity. "

    we are used to people like you not answering easy questions

    that you won't tell us what gun laws you oppose and support, we are left with the rational conclusion that your claims of being pro gun are BS.

    the only gun law that matters in this shooting is the fact that the people who were slain were not allowed to carry guns for the most part. It was a Clinton law that made domestic military bases GFZs, especially for civilian contractors
