Nice one subby, got a giggle from me.

I asked you to stop shooting people.

Stop. Shooting. People.

It's a brilliant move. If we have a shooting every other day, it's always "too soon" to talk about gun control.

What additional laws do you think would have prevented juveniles from illegally possessing and illegally shooting guns?

I Google mapped the location of the incident and it's right behind a Buffalo Wild Wings. Nothing good ever happens behind a Buffalo Wild Wings on a Saturday night.

To those who are fond of taking the position that we have gun laws, but people don't obey them, so no point having more:
How about we make it 25-life to furnish any minor with a gun?
Or violate any other gun law?
Problem with gun laws is they have no teeth.
Gun violations should all be class a felonies, and carry big, hard time.
We need to stop treating killer weapons as toys and jokes.
People who purvey and play with weapons are real criminals, unlike the drug dealers and users we waste so much jail cell space on.
Take the gun fappers, and lock them up where they can't get guns.
Problem solved.

You're making an awful lot of assumptions there Mr Gun-Grabber!
What makes you think none of these brave citizen patriots were acting in legal self-defence?
Can you really answer that one, you commie bedwetter?

At least six people were injured on Saturday night during an exchange of gunfire in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, police said.
Chattanooga Police officers were patrolling downtown at about 10:48 p.m. local time when they "observed multiple parties exchanging gunfire and numerous people fleeing the area" near 100 Cherry St.


No deaths?
So it was just a regular American Saturday night then?
You know, go out, party, fire some guns - god bless America.
 
2022-05-29 8:41:32 AM  
Well, don't worry folks - this appears to be what the dog-whistlers call "gang crime" or "urban" crime.
I don't need to translate for you.
And that, of course, makes it Somebody Else's Problem.
See Douglas Adams for further explanation.

I remember getting laughed off the podium in middle school for attempting that argument.
In my defense, I was 13 at the time, and have never attempted the argument as an adult.
But then, I was raised by civilized people in a civilized place, and not in a trailer park, by peckerwoods.
Many of these subhumans have never had the experience of having the contents of their idiot minds subjected to any real scrutiny.
They are home schooled, or "educated" in the Midwest or South and taught nothing.

So let's assume you're right and every person involved possessed a gun illegally. How did they get them then? Private seller? Gun show? Robbery?

So how could we fix this? Universal background checks would solve some of it. The way that would solve all of it is to ban most types of guns so they can't be purchased anywhere and get them out of people's houses, businesses, and cars so they can't be stolen.  Yes there are a lot of guns out there so the buy back or other effort would be huge, but if someone chose not to get rid of their toys they are then prosecutable for possessing an illegal weapon. It's not like illegal guns actively being used in crime have a long half life. If we cut off the source the illegal side would flush itself out in short order.

Most gun violence in Chattanooga takes place in the parts of town where if you hit a red light you don't stop and usually between the hours of 1:00AM  and  4:00AM.  This is particularly troubling because it happened where there are lots of tourists on a holiday weekend at a relatively early hour. Most  of these tourists will be going back home to Atlanta where it's relatively safer

Sure, you're being useful.  I fully support gun control that makes sense.

Cops say they think it was juveniles.  Juveniles aren't allowed to legally carry firearms.  And we can safely assume they were gang bangers.

So again, what additonal law would have prevented this?

The dog-whistlers aren't why these get no attention.  What makes it Somebody Else's Problem is that the Chattanooga shooting won't be filling up headlines for the next week.  The mayor probably won't be having a press conference.

Problem is only around 20% of people want to ban guns, so good luck. Even background checks only get around 50% when on the ballot ( see Nevada and Maine ballot initiatives)
