I said it before and I'll say it again. The schools of the future will be equipped with panic rooms in every class room. Their parents will pay top dollar to send their snowflakes to those schools and like it. I see these crazy gun facks as job creators. Kinda like theater marshals, when going to a harmless movie.

So if the 2nd Amendment guarantees a person's right to own firearms, how is it legal to take away that right for a person with a criminal record?

Seriously...do you look at lines on a map and think they're forcefields?


Politicians do when it comes to redistricting, so I guess it's ok to do the same for gun control.

lordjupiter: Cuyose: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Maybe, just maybe, it's HARDER to get things across international borders, so fewer things come across than can be transferred across state lines.

How hard is it to buy pot from someone?

Pot =/= guns.

Plus, you can't mass manufacture guns in your closet, dumbass.


*yawn* wake me when someone uses a bag of weed to kill multiple people.

Hell, wake me when someone high on weed thinks violence is a good idea.

Haliburton Cummings: Utter Genius: 18,000 people die in drunk-driving incidents a year. Government, please ban assault cars and assault alcohol TIA.

hmm. cars require ID...Booze requires ID.

any banjo playing american hick can buy a gun anywhere, buy ammo without ID.

the real issue is that gunmericans are self righteous entitled twats who have penis problems and need guns on all their movie posters, in all the television shows and a gun to solve all their problems..except the big problem of it's corrupt political system and corporate police state..
no..don't mention that....

so any gun debate sadly avoids all that...

a nation of psychopaths .

right on gun nuts.


Uhhhhhhh...

You need to show an ID to buy ammo. Hell, you need to show ID to buy a cigarette lighter in my state.

Tell that to the Israelis.

GoldSpider: Thanks to the CA state gun laws, the shooter didn't have an assault rifle, and only two people died in this attack. The law is working as intended.


The same weapons are available, just the magazine size is different.

Cyberluddite: Psycoholic_Slag: Ahhh, Taft.

They're
All
Fu*king
Tweekers

30 miles from my house.

Taft is most likely a shiathole (I've only passed the exit on the freeway, and have never been there), but if you're 30 miles away you must live in Bakersfield.  Which means you have no room to talk any shiat whatsoever about anyplace.



Where do you live so that I might make a relevant retort? If your profile is correct you are from NorCal. Be more specific because I could go on all day about any town/city in California.

chuckufarlie: topcon: Gun murders have dropped for 20 years. But let's keep making bigger and bigger deals out of individual shootings to compensate for it, despite the fact violent crime is half of what it was in 1992.

How many children have to die before you see that there is a problem? An estimate would be okay - just give us your number.


How many children will die today because of drunk drivers? Why aren't we having a discussion about installing breath interlock devices on all vehicles in the US? If we're going to make a big deal out of something, let's pick something big.

Less and less people every year are dying to guns. Fact. Far less people are getting killed right now on a yearly basis than when the AWB was in effect.

It's good to see that the gun laws in California and New York and others have had an effect.  We need to expand them and things will improve more.

Technically, it's not, but the Supreme Court says it's ok.

Well, you could also look to the 5th amendment that says no person shall be deprived of liberty without the due process of law.

you're really going to suggest that our international borders are not monitored at all, whatsoever?

Because state borders aren't monitored for anything but produce. Unless you think international borders are never monitored for anything but produce, then they are by definition MORE secure.


So what? Your point is we should enact any law which takes any step forward to being more probably to cause a result you are aiming for, regardless of the impact or actual outcome? We could ban all sorts of things if the main goal is to preserve lives.
 
2013-01-10 02:27:02 PM  
Yes subby, because it wasnt a person who did the shooting it was the gun. Maybe we should have talk about parent controll to combat the irresponsible people who have kids and then dont raise them right or at all.

Skarekrough: Pfactor: But... high capacity magazines and military-looking rifles are ALREADY banned in California. Gun activists told us this couldn't happen!

Only two injured, not double-digits dead.

Try harder.

1/10


Simple. You could get the same result with a pre-Civil War revolver, but the fact is that banning whole classes of firearms doesn't fix the fact that people were hurt, gun free zones are a farking joke, and if it turns out he used a gun that is legal to purchase in California today, then it was a happy accident, as he could have easily used a grandfathered AR-15 he stole from some old dude that bought one prior to the California "ban" on assault weapons back in '89. BETTER SCHOOL SECURITY is what will stop shiat like this, not "gun control".
 
2013-01-10 02:27:36 PM  

Lexx: Hmm, comparing car ownership and gun ownership really isn't a bad idea. Why don't we require you to pass two tests and take a class before being approved to even own a gun, AND require a couple hundred dollars a month in "gun insurance" which helps pay the medical bills or funeral expenses of whoever ends up dying by your piece.


It's like you think criminals get their guns legally NOW, or something. Is it really that hard to understand that criminals, by definition, DON'T FOLLOW THE LAWS about this sort of thing?

Concise.
 
2013-01-10 02:28:41 PM  
Easy solution, or at least a path to one:

Appease the gun crowd: Buy whatever you want. "Because fark you I want one" is a perfectly legitimate reason to own a weapon.

But, that comes with a cost... the cost of responsibility both fiscal and mental.

Let's put a nationwide tax on all gun-, ammunition- and gun-related items (hearing protection... targets... cases... stupid stickers for your truck... etc). Starts at 5%.

All revenue from that tax go to funding a massive mental health campaign -- screening of children from elementary school through college; screening of anyone buying a gun; annual screening of anyone with a license for a gun, which would also include checking for proper security and storage of that gun. Let's have PR campaigns working to reduce the stigma of mental counseling and increase the willingness of people to get help. Let's have success stories of people who were helped -before- they shot up a movie theater. Etc etc etc.

Here's the rub: Every time two or more people are killed with a gun, the tax goes up 5%. No limit.

Even if it's at 7000%, if some poor soul shoots up a [school | mall | nursing station | whatever]... 7005%, effective immediately.

You want an AR-AK-M-16-mp3-LOL fully auto anti-tank howitzer? Fine. But contribute to paying for and preventing the harm other weapons like it do to our society. Be a responsible gun owner, and support getting help for those who need it, and maybe, just maybe, we can reduce the problem. Fair trade?
 
2013-01-10 02:28:57 PM  

Noticeably F.A.T.: lordjupiter: And that there would be no impact at all?

Of course there would be an impact. Everyone not willing to go across the border for an illegal gun wouldn't have a gun. Of course, those aren't the people you needed to worry about in the first place, but that's not the point, right?


So you really, really think that people just looking for a gun for home defense would be totally unable to get a gun, and the streets would be controlled by gun-toting criminals who are the only ones able to get guns, and nobody would ever think to buy or sell them to anyone but drug dealers and burglers?

Or is this an abuse of the word "criminal" in the "only criminals will have guns" chiasmus, meaning that people looking to defend themselves TECHNICALLY become "criminals" when they have guns in a gun-ban area, even though the clear meaning of "criminal" is different from those who they're seeking defense from?

/ no, that's not a joke, the NRA really did push for laws that rearms dangerous criminals and terrorists..... sorry.... "relieved" those "disabled" persons....

The Connecticut shooting was with legally owned guns. Also the point of that insurance would be to help counter the danger of guns by A: making them more difficult to obtain, B: making them more expensive to own, and C: creating a pool of money with which to help out the shooting victims, fund mental health treatment, etc etc.

Almost all are on drugs daily. But that can't have anything to do with it, because we need those
