    If you're drunk with a gun on you, do you get your firearms card revoked?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    That's why I don't support gun laws. It's just too late now. We must accept their presence and conduct ourselves accordingly. Being an asshole in public is always risky - why call attention to yourself? Be nice and you'll likely not be a victim.

    As Kurt would say....so it goes....
    I strongly support the Second Amendment, but cops are too quick to pull the trigger, either on their tasers or pistols - sometimes they get confused to boot and shoot a guy in the back when the intent was to tase..... This is murder.

    I have a feeling the defense team will try to call it self-defense because the victim was younger than the ex cop. He will claim he felt his life was in danger and was only defending himself.

    Not saying that is right but will have to wait and see how this folds out.

    Not necessarily. What state are we talking about?

    It's not against the law to drink and carry a gun in many states. And some specify being under the influence.

    I dont know all the state's laws.

    There are ways such things could be handled. Just like fire alarms. And pulling the "medical emergency" alarm or whatever could turn off the jammer. I am not going to buy that we need to always be able to use our cell phones in order to be safe.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    If you are stopped by the cops in Texas and they ask you if you are armed with a gun or knife and you say "No", then they give you one. That's an executive order by Gov. Perry

    Carry on folks. Nothing to see here.
    Please define 'gun violence.'

    Because to me, that means 'crime.'

    Legally carrying gun owners commit the tiniest fraction of any type of violent crimes.

    Gun violence is by far committed by criminals and gangbangers.

    And thus, no laws will be effective to prevent their actions.

    Laws restricting guns and preventing carry only HARM law-abiding people.

    No, I dont believe it is. If so, please feel free to source it.

    I go by the evidence....nearly everyone owns and drives cars everyday and felons, the mentally ill, minors...all these people have to do is slap down the money...no background checks for instance.
