ProfessorOhki: simplicimus: ProfessorOhki: geo9270: Xythero: So what? It was an unloaded gun that was inspected by police before enterring the chamber. What's the big deal?

The 4 Basic Rules of Gun Safety:

•Treat all guns as if they are loaded.

•Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.

•Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

•Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.


How many did this moran violate? (Hint ALL OF THEM)

So?

So, people who have no idea how to handle a gun should not be proposing legislation on guns. I'm supposed to let idiots describe what an "assault weapon" is? All guns are assault weapons, as are my bow, crossbow and swords. Probably my cutlery.

And non-economists shouldn't make propose economic legislation, non-engineers shouldn't propose internet legislation, and non-doctors shouldn't propose medical legislation, right? If that's your argument, I'm all for it. If you think it only applies to this one topic... derp.


Cool strawman brown, but knowing not to wave a gun around a crowded room with your finger isn't gunsmith level expertise.

People who jabber about tubes shouldn't propose internet regulation.
Bretharians shouldn't propose medical legislation.

I May Be Crazy But...: I've heard a story that since it's legal to carry a concealed weapon in the Texas Capitol building, and if you do you skip the metal detector lines (because what's the point?), some reporters have gotten concealed carry licenses and pistols to speed up the process. I have no idea if I remember right or if it was true when I heard it, but it's funny anyway.

They are dangerous toys, noting more, nothing less. If hicks and lunatics can't play safely with these toys, they will lose them, and that's OK.

Ersatz military gear has no rational place in our civil society. We don't let idiots dress up like cops or firefighters or EMTs, either; you get arrested for that shiat. It should be the same if you want to dress up like a soldier. We can make an exception for re-enactors, since at least they seem to know that they're playing dress-up.

Otherwise, yes, you should lose your military toys at the drop of a hat and they should be regulated to whatever necessary level to keep them away from thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shiat-kickers and Methodists.

Hey maybe there IS middle ground on the gun debate, a sensible compromise solution that Gun-lovers and Gun haters can all agree on:

A law stating that anytime you are caught doing something stupid with a gun, be it in public, on facebook, twitter, Instagram  etc,  That gun is immediately forfiet and your right to buy another gun is suspended for a year, with a three strikes lifetime ban

kombat_unit: Dimensio: Xythero: So what? It was an unloaded gun that was inspected by police before enterring the chamber. What's the big deal?

It was a deadly semi-automatic assault rifle with no legitimate civilian purpose and that is only ever used for killing a substantial quantity of humans in a relatively short duration. As such, observers of the firearm are obligated to suffer from immediate incontinence and paralysis resulting from anxiety.

Additionally, the lawmaker demonstrated improper firearm handling safety. Such behaviour inherently merits scorn.

Seriously, fark taught me guns ONLY purpose is to kill. Why it no kill?


Apparently, and quite fortunately for other lawmakers in the building, the firearm was defective. It may suffer from the same defect that evidently affects my firearms.
