novalord2: No one is going to take your guns. You can point to Feinstein or pluck out a few anecdotes of fringe leftists, but it doesn't change the fact that you are screaming at imaginary terrors.

I am a gun owner in California. Even here, a plethora of self-defense options available to basically everyone. I can't even begin to understand what people like you are afraid of. Then again, I've come across far too many people that are surprised that I own guns in CA because the shiat they hear from the NRA/Limbaugh.



Do you think they would try to take peoples guns if there wasn't as much resistance as there is now?

It is the goal of the gun control crowd. Everything else they do is just goose steps in that direction.

No, certainly not. Any time it's brought up it's dismissed as whargarbl, or paranoia, or a slippery slope fallacy. Any politician who brings up confiscation or bans or the inability to legally transfer the ownership of a model or class of firearm through one's offspring is discounted as being a "minority, an outlier, "an overzealous staffer" if you will and thus without consequence. When proposals to open the NICS system to private sales is brought up by people who own firearms among the Fark community it is ignored or dismissed. When proposals to minimize the effects of poverty, end the war on drugs, reduce the prevalence of gangs (which is intrinsically tied to aforementioned poverty and War on Drugs), and reducing the social stigma of seeking out or being reported and mandated to receive mental healthcare all I seem to see in response is "that's part of our platform too" or even more damning "welp, guess you should have spoken up more loudly and earlier gun-nut."

whidbey: Oh great. Another Fark Gun Thread™ with way too many comments.

1.  The NRA is very likely the biggest reason why we do not have an enforceable gun regulation policy.
2.   The NRA's successful lobbying for the (too powerful) gun manufacturing industry is why this country has a  weapons black market, period.


You're inspiring me to buy a lifetime NRA membership.

Actually, if there had been a law (with teeth, no less) that gun owners had to secure their weaponry against any chance of someone accessing them, Sandy Hook might not have happened at all.

Let's see, should I support the ACLU, who has proven time and again to be the true champions of human and civil rights, or should I bleat in time to the chorus of gun nuts who have done all they can to f*ck this country's chances up of having an enforceable (=safe) gun regulation policy.

Decisions, decisions. I  know. I'll call up Chuck Norris. He knows.

The NRA is not hampering enforcing current law. The politicians and prosecutors and cops are doing that themselves. Instead of enforcing laws on the books...like lying on form 4473s , straw purchasers etc...they choose not to prosecute and want to pass extra laws that probably won't be enforced either.

How does the NRA or manufacturers gain financially from a balck market?  If it was about money wouldn't the NRA and manufactirers want people to buy from certified dealers/distributors?

Firearms are more expensive on the black market....an 800$ AR can go for multiple thousands...but criminals aren't using ARs in the commission of crime now are they? Well aside from maybe a few dozen people.

Why do you want to legislate tens of millions over the transgressions of a few dozen?

That's a bit different. Though I have to ask, is it ever okay to be with an open container of alcohol and a ccw at the same time? (Honestly don't know). Is this a parallel? Even then...

Uchiha_Cycliste: How Vegetarian? Can you go catch a fish and make delicious fish tacos?

Fish can stay in the water.  I don't get why people eat those things.

Fish are absolutely delicious. Especially fresh caught up in the mountains..

Trout?  I've been all about walleye and sturgeon forever and i've heard trout is crazy gamey.  How to you cook it?


I've had it up high in the sierras and they are usually maybe 8-12 inches. Cut off the head, gut it, throw it on the largest lid of cook kit with some oil  and eat whats left when it's fully cooked. It gets picked at while it cooks. Good eatin' yummy yummy rainbow and brown trout. If you get high enough they are all natural since they don't stock a lot of places, those guys fight harder and taste better. Mmmm mmm

Bullshiat, I had to pay for shipping for a single pound of 'unique' (shipping is expensive because people are retarded) that had to be procured on the other side of the country.  American arms manufacturers cant keep up with demand.  Prices are high as hell.  Please stop biatching about guns, so people will stop thinking its their last chance, and $480 rifles will stop selling for $2,000.

Thanks,

sheep snorter: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

But now that the U.S. has its own army, the militia is no longer needed, so no more guns for you. Please head down to your local recycling center and turn them all in and you get a free cookie.
But if you don't want to tun them in, President Obama is setting up some "freedom lover" communes in a couple of States that will take your guns as soon as you enter. I think 'Citidel' was the name of one of them.

/Glory be to Glenn Beckistani.


Funny how it doesn't say "The right of the militia to keep and bear arms" Oh well, can't have silly things like "facts" muddy up your preconceived notions, now can we?

It is the goal of the gun control crowd. Everything else they do is just goose steps in that direction.


"One of the most controversial gun-control bills introduced in California this year -- a move to seize the 166,000 registered assault weapons grandfathered in under the state's ban -- is dead, its author said Thursday.
When Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, introduced AB174 in January, it was designed to declare the Legislature's intent to end all "grandfather clauses" allowing ownership of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines. But on Tuesday, he gutted and amended the bill to address public-school health centers instead. Coincidentally, it was the same day that U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced he won't include Sen. Dianne Feinstein's proposed reinstatement of the federal assault weapons ban in the gun-control bill he brings to the floor.
Bonta said Thursday that he came to realize his proposal was a nonstarter.
"It would be extremely expensive, for one -- if you were going to take back guns that were grandfathered in, you would have to provide market compensation for them," he said."

If someone were legally compelled to secure their weapons, no lone individual would have that kind of chance.  And yeah, we're probably talking some kind of expensive top-of-the-line means to secure weapons.  I know you think responsibility shouldn't be expensive.

Would you like citations?

Even though the crime is a felony...even though by not prosecuting and putting the perpetrators in jail that leaves the perpetrator free to go about procuring a firearm by other methods and possibly killing/raping someone.


Do you believe you have no right to defend yourself? Actually I don;t care if what you believe because you are trying to deny other people the right to self defense.

I am not entirely comfortable knowing my freedom is being paid for by the bodies of children who reportedly were dismembered by gunfire by someone who i've never met.

"messy" seems a tad grotesque when i think of what this sort of freedom you think this is since my most valued freedoms are largely encoded into law already

And we fully expect you to ignore several dozen dead bodies, because hey why interrupt your wild west fantasies eh?


That's a great reason to push legislation that would have had zero effect on the murders. The crazy kid didn't buy the guns. His dead mother didn't even legally transfer the guns to him. I guess maybe if there was a background check on guns taken from a murder victim maybe the shooter would have asked the government's permission before taking the guns from his dead mother and shooting up that school.

I'm sure whatever cherrypicked examples you could provide doesn't negate any of the points I have been making, that the NRA is the reason we have this antiquated rather paranoid mindset over gun regulation.
Find some other way of getting your point across instead, I would offer. 


Do you believe you have no right to defend yourself? Actually I don;t care if what you believe because you are trying to deny other people the right to self defense.

I believe people should have the right to bear arms, per the Constitution.
I find the over-the-top gun culture paranoid attitude that everyone needs a gun or else they're going to be attacked to be ludicrous "what-if" bullshiat. You know damn well nobody's going to break in to your house or hurt anyone close to you, Giltric.   You have this disturbing Minuteman mentality.   We live in a relatively peaceful society. Why do we need to keep shoving fearful gun culture archetypes into everyone's face?  Why can't we move on as a society?

Why don't you move to Chicago or somewhere that has strict gun control laws? Why bother forcing your progressive dream on everyone else?

Chicago is full of millions of people.  Pointing to big cities like NY or Chi-Town and claiming gun control laws don't work is bullshiat.

Also, I've yet to hear anyone discuss what we're going to do about the black market.  Gun advocates don't want success in that area, either.

Oh yeah $2 million in 10 years is just such a gigantic amount of lobbying money, gee whiz. In contrast companies like Apple, Microsoft, IBM spent over $150 million, not over 10 years but in 2010 alone.

Haha, "honesty" whatever you say dude.

Yeah well Microsoft doesn't make a product that could blow off someone's farking head, dude. Nor are they stuck in a 19th Century mindset like "everyone needs a farking gun."

I know you don't want to hear any of that, but hey.

Cars kill more people that guns every year. No one "needs a car." Humanity got along great for thousands of years without those death machines.

I know you don't want to hear any of that, but hey.

Yeah you're right.  It's the old "guns are cars/knives/clubs/pinwheels fallacy.

It isn't an argument.    Guns are only....wait for it...

Guns. Nothing else. They should be treated as what they are, without the need to make absurd comparisons to other things.  Yeah I definitely know you don't want to hear that shiat.


So when a car, a completely unnecessary item kills someone it's magically different from a someone killed by a gun? Getting shot is a worse death than being crushed by a semi? You're right guns are just guns, lumps of wood and steel incapable of taking any action by themselves.

So why do you fear them more than cars?

GUTSU: Giltric: novalord2: No one is going to take your guns. You can point to Feinstein or pluck out a few anecdotes of fringe leftists, but it doesn't change the fact that you are screaming at imaginary terrors.

I am a gun owner in California. Even here, a plethora of self-defense options available to basically everyone. I can't even begin to understand what people like you are afraid of. Then again, I've come across far too many people that are surprised that I own guns in CA because the shiat they hear from the NRA/Limbaugh.


Do you think they would try to take peoples guns if there wasn't as much resistance as there is now?

It is the goal of the gun control crowd. Everything else they do is just goose steps in that direction.

"One of the most controversial gun-control bills introduced in California this year -- a move to seize the 166,000 registered assault weapons grandfathered in under the state's ban -- is dead, its author said Thursday.
When Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, introduced AB174 in January, it was designed to declare the Legislature's intent to end all "grandfather clauses" allowing ownership of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines. But on Tuesday, he gutted and amended the bill to address public-school health centers instead. Coincidentally, it was the same day that U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced he won't include Sen. Dianne Feinstein's proposed reinstatement of the federal assault weapons ban in the gun-control bill he brings to the floor.
Bonta said Thursday that he came to realize his proposal was a nonstarter.
"It would be extremely expensive, for one -- if you were going to take back guns that were grandfathered in, you would have to provide market compensation for them," he said."

No ones coming for your guns, super promise!


Good job, you found one of the few fringe lefties making proposals that even they admit are not feasible. Clearly, the end is nigh.

The Democrats have a super-majority in this state, and our gun laws have remained relatively static for the past twenty years. They are capable of passing absolutely any law they want, including confiscation. Problem is, there is no tangible faction that cares to do that.

Gun control is not a black and white issue. There are sensible gun regulations, which currently exist in California.

Giltric, why do you seem to believe that the government is hell bent on taking everyone's guns? What do they have to gain from doing that? I hope that you don't answer with something along the lines of "guns protect us from tyranny". Rednecks with rifles are no match for the military, full-stop, done. They could deal with an insurrection with drones alone. You have to be retard to sincerely believe that your AR15 keeps the government at bay.

Please, tell me how many guns is an "arsenal." Do muzzleloaders count? .22's, lever actions, bolt action, break action, semi-automatics, shotguns, do those count? Why does society get to decide how much personal property I, as a law abiding citizen can own?

As far as "gun insurance" goes - is it meant to cover if the policy holder blasts somebody? Or is it meant to cover if someone steals the gun and later uses it in a murder? Because if it's the latter, imputing liability to the victim of theft is ridiculous and inequitable.

If the gun owner made it easy or attractive for a child or deranged family member to access the gun, there are already civil remedies in place to compensate the victims.

It's okay to be afraid of inanimate objects, It's okay to deflect questions you don't want to answer. I guess those 34,000 people should have got shot last year, maybe you'd care about them then.

This is also not an argument.

You need to address the following:

1. The NRA is largely responsible for derailing any serious enforceable gun regulation policy
2.  The need for home protection is seriously romanticized in this country
3.  Being the world's largest manufacturer of weapons, the US has a serious conflict of interest in regards to the weapons black market.

I dare you to honestly answer any of the points.

I've already stated numerous times that this country isn't serious about addressing black market control,  courtesy of the gun manufacturing lobby, particularly the NRA.

So far, I've only gotten shiat here for pointing that out.

Are you assuming that one gun is suited to every situation? Do you expect people to do hunting with 9mm hand guns? Protect their families with bolt-action rifles? Why should people be restricted by how many weapons they can own? To satisfy your irrational fears?

1.  There have been no SERIOUSLY ENFORCEABLE gun regulation policies.  The SCOTUS has said as much.  They merely defend us from SERIOUSLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL legislation.

2.  I have had people invade my home.

3.  All of the Army's machine guns are purchased from the Dutch.

He's probably never seen a gun, so he probably doesn't understand the differences between the use for a shotgun and the use for a bolt-action rifle.  They both shoot bullets, right?
