dittybopper: DamnYankees: dittybopper: In what way? That it didn't have a lasting significant difference?Yes, I was agreeing with you. The impact seems to be isolated to that one year and not sustained, which sort of undermines the idea that the repeal of this law had some huge lasting consequences.OK. Your post was ambiguous. Sometimes it's hard to tell.
jaytkay: MyRandomName: What about guns scare you so much.The fact that gun enthusiasts are resentful losers who dream about the day they get to kill somebody.
dittybopper: Infernalist: That's an interesting facet of the conversation.It's from the same people who want to ban common bolt-action hunting and target rifles as "sniper rifles".Don't believe me?http://www.vpc.org/graphics/snipcov2.pdfGiven the virtual identity of the core systems, the outright equivalenceaccorded the sniper and varmint model by the experts, and Remington's ownemphasis on the inclusion of military and police technology in its advertising, weinclude the Remington Model 700 Varmint Special on this list of civilian sniper rifles.The "core system" is the Remington Model 700 bolt action, sold for 50+ years as a target and hunting rifle, and the military adopted the Model 700 because of its inherent accuracy, not the other-way 'round.
plmyfngr: I often wonder how many people sit around and think "I'd really like to kill that guy...if only I could legally get a handgun..."
Rapmaster2000: That's only because there are still too many onerous requirements on law-abiding gun purchasers. We need to remove every single regulation, and then you will see that crime will go down to nothing.
dittybopper: That's an increase of 6.72-6.67 = 0.05 per 100,000 a year, so an extra 3 people per year at the 2012 population level. Maybe. That number is so small, I doubt it is statistically significant and it would be swallowed up by the normal "noise".
