Sad that so many people have spent so much of their lives being fed so much fear mongering propaganda that they're afraid to go buy a cup of coffee without carrying a semi-auto long gun.

They'll probably want to march through the cities carrying as many guns as they can with their cowardly faces masked again just to show how upset they are.

Fascists intimidate people with force of arms and bully citizens in order to keep the power they already have. Totallyunlike gun owners. Completely different.

Happy to see it. Common sense ruled the day.

"Oh, but we need more laws" said Suzy Public.

To which I ask, precisely how many mass murders have been carried out by people obeying the law? Here's a hint on the answer - Zero.

There are enough laws. Start fixing our Mental Health system.

"But no", says Suzy, "We fixed all of our health care with Obamacare. It's can't be a health problem".

And there, kiddies, is the crux of the problem. The real solution is politically incorrect because it flies in the face of the current conventional wisdom.

That's not entirely accurate. Fascists intimidated long before they had power after WW1

virginia passed the universal background check bill and monthly handgun purchase limits. The latter does not apply to virginians with CHL 's. Virginia provides non-resident CHL's over the internet, Hopefully shoot to qualify will be the next step to getting a CHL in Virginia, because a trained good guy with a gun is a safer good guy with a gun,

This one here never stood a chance.

I've worked with the mentally disabled and the mentally ill. I agree that the system is in bad need of an overhaul.

But in every group home where someone was a risk to themselves and others, we had a sharps drawer where all the scissors and knives were locked up. No, not everyone in the house was a risk, but some were, and we weren't stupid enough to take our chances.

No one is saying "no one can have guns", even if that would be a good idea. We're saying "maybe lock up the guns while we figure out what to do with them so the people who are risks don't have easy access.

It's that common sense thing you seem to care about so much.

No one on either side claims that obamacare fixed the health care system. There's a reason it's still a campaign point to fix how farked it is.

The first federal assault weapons ban already happened, in 1994.

It didn't fix anything and it went away in 2004.

The important factor is the fearmongering part where they try to make you think "they" are out to get your God Give Property (tm) so you clutch them all the tighter, too afraid to let go. And hey look, it's working!

The first step of any fascist government is to ban and confiscate firearms.  See: George III, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, Castro, etc.  It's not opinion it's historical precedent going back more than 200 years.

Oh, are we playing the guns vs cars game again? Because guess what we do with cars? We register them and take away licenses based on how much of a danger someone is, and you can lose said license permanently just by refusing to obey the law.

Also a car is a means of conveyance, not a weapon. They don't compare in the slightest.

You actually can own a replica of an Atom Bomb.  You just aren't allowed to own uranium or plutonium.  Just be careful who you buy your bomb from.  You may just end up with a shoddy casing filled with used pinball machine parts.

If our arguments can be invalidated because we don't know the difference between a thrunted shacklebolt and a cock-gripped shafting sleeve on the '68 model of a Moisint Gagant MK HK 0.00.06 carbide, then you should start using the proper terms for things, spud.

We also:

Let people sell each other cars without a background check or a dealer's license.
Have 100% mutual recognition of driver's licenses between states.
Allow people to operate cars on private property without any license.
Allow people to modify their cars to go faster.
Mandate mufflers on cars.
Let 16 year olds operate cars on public roads.

So yeah, it's a stupid argument.

Venezuela, do you think the government would still be in power if the citizens had weapons?  Now only government sanctioned criminal gangs have weapons, how is that working out for them?

Also, the people voted to remove weapons from the themselves....
