To the current discussion: If we ban guns then eventually we'll have to ban tobacco, prescription painkillers(legal heroin), junk food .... and forget about ever legalizing pot. I'm a Liberal Democrat and I understand this, but, I know some anti-gun liberals unwilling to give up drinking and smoking despite the fact they also kill people. It makes no sense and they should relax.
However, Pro-gun folks need to lighten up also and try to understand that Gun regulations aren't meant as a personal attack on their rights. Regulations aren't Gun Rights true threat, illegal gun owners are ... and if things are this bad with regulations, I can only imagine what it would be like without some "order".
Regulations are intended to preserve gun rights. They're meant to keep that "one bad apple" from "spoiling the whole bunch"
Silly poor people
Tax cuts are for the rich!
Tell me and everyone else just how you feel about guns, and people owning guns?. And whats your personal opinion on the Glock handgun?
I think it's one of the best handguns of it's class......Do you agree?
Like many many of others in America, I own a Glock .....Do you.?....if not a Glock......What kind?
many of those who propose gun laws do so to punish pro gun groups and voters.
it started in the 60s when dems were being hammered over being weak on crime fueled by massive crime increases and the race riots that broke out after Dr King was murdered. so dems needed a shield to ward off that attack and they found it by pushing for gun control. Their 1968 gun control act was passed to stave off candidate Nixon's attack on the dems. However, the NRA-which had not been particularly political, took offense and noted that the gun laws were nothing more than feel good nonsense.
The dems were upset that their little facade was being criticized as something that didn't prevent crime nor hurt criminals. Their gun control laws turned the NRA into a formidable lobbying organization and many other gun groups-mainly focused on target shooting and hunting, mobilized into getting out the pro gun vote. Now the dems had enemies that gun control could be used to attack-hunters, shooters and gun groups.
and while the average pro gun control sheep might think such laws deter criminals, the scum that run the ban the gun groups are no different than many of the anti abortion leaders who talk about saving innocent life but really are interested in punishing their political opponents and tying up the opposition's resources in defending rights they once took for granted
why-because they work and they are very very easy to learn how to shoot well
