    my question is VERY easy, if you cant answer it its better just to admit and stop dodging and deflecting, then your posts wouldnt fail so hard and look so silly. Dont get me wrong i love the entertainment but your pot will just continue to fail

    necessity according to who and what facts?

    According to me, and the law of supply and demand. Supply of guns goes down, and the price will go up.

    1.) yes you have made your meaningless feelings clear
    2.) nope NOTHING about the law of supply and demand makes your claim factually a necessity. You FEEL it is but it doesnt make it one. Nobody cares about your feelings i asked you for facts that make your claim true and you have ZERO so far. This isnt rocket science lol

    heres your failed statement again:

After all, it was progressives who pushed for alcohol prohibition, which was another disaster. Even today, leftist turds are intent on banning everything from straws to happy meals.

    I have no doubt that you'd luv to see a "war on guns", and I think we all know how that would turn out.
    Prohibition does not actually require locking people up or destroying their lives. It merely requires confiscating the drugs, and then allowing economics to do the rest.

    This notion of stopping a crime before it is committed is fantasy.

    By stopping I mean being able to infer intent before the “criminal” actually commits an offense.

    No government, state or federal, has any authority to infringe your rights. The slow erosion of that ideal is not what the founders had in mind. The biggest one in my opinion is the 4th amendment violations within 100 miles of the border. The SC stating it’s a minor infringement but that’s ok is ridiculous.

    Same thing with the 2A. Putting restrictions in place would do nothing to stop anyone with the determination to do harm.

    I am by no means saying we collectively throw our hands up and give up BUT infringing law abiding citizens is not the correct way. Just like drugs being stored on private property we don’t just start raiding everyone’s house under the guise of “reducing” the amount of drugs on the street.

    who do you think is unable to get guns then?

    honest poor folk living in the projects, or hard core criminal gang members?

    So here’s my question for all you: How could we prevent someone who is planning mass shooting yet has a clean slate from obtaining weapons legally?
    Call the psychic hotline or Bureau of Pre-Crime apprehension.

    Is that so? Because the law of supply and demand clearly states that the supply of an item will affect its ultimate price. Therefore, if the supply of guns goes down, their price will rise. Agreed?

    lol this so much fun,i could od this all night
    1.) yes its a fact, your inability to grasp if doesnt change that
    2.) meaningless, nothing you said makes it a necessity, you just feel it is because YOU think its what is needed . . but unfortunately for your failed claims theres nothing that makes it so

    so once again according to who and what facts

    So here’s my question for all you: How could we prevent someone who is planning mass shooting yet has a clean slate from obtaining weapons legally?
    There is much flawed logic here.
    First we can not even stop convicted felons, banned in every state from possessing firearms from having them. In fact they are responsible for about 90% of all gun violence. So it is quite obvious you can not prevent anyone intent on obtaining a firearm from getting one.
    Second, are you assuming that without a gun some nut job in not going to harm people? If that is your assumption, look at knife violence in London.
    Third, you are trying to create a problem where none exists.
    Study(psychiatryonline.org) after study(ScienceDirect.com | Science, health and medical journals, full text articles and books.) has demonstrated that people with mental health issues commit only a miniscule percentage of mass shootings and account for less than 1% of annual gun homicides.
