Amen Marlene B. As a fellow lady who took and passed the VA real estate licensing exam, you are SO right! I agree with you in that we need our own gun for protection, criminals are the ones that get them by avoiding laws.
sorry if I sound rude
You do not sound rude and I agree that taking guns from those innocent of any infractions just makes those same people sitting ducks for any who choose to do as they please. Criminals don't care about laws, laws only affect the law-abiding.
There could be a lot of conspiracy theory stuff at play, but just think if even 10% of this interview is true:
If referring to the recent incident in China, the man did cut them but didn't kill 22. There is a difference, if he really wanted to he could have slashed their throats. I agree that banning guns will not end crime, crooks don't adhere to laws.
Interesting. In the UK it looks like a double-pronged approach is gradually working: better policing + gun control. The link I posted explains this.
You mean that anybody should be able to own any weapon that they want without any restriction, licensing, mental health checks or criminal checks!
It is perfectly legal to yell "fire" in a theater. After the fact it will be determined if there was necessary cause to do so. If so, then everything is jake. If not, the yeller might be prosecuted on various charges... but not for "yelling."
I am in total agreement with you. Isn't it ironic that the politicians forcing changes on those who have broken no laws will not give up their own guns, armed security, Secret Service, etc.
Yes sir. Many years ago NYC tried to ban all Glock pistols. We were putting together a lawsuit against top NYPD officials for carrying these banned guns. It was overturned and was used as a primary for the police force.
Hillarious in a sarcastic way of course. I hope that Americans will never allow their guns to be taken away but I don't like the politicizing of tragedies to attack the rights of law-abiding owners. Go after the criminals, not law abiding folks.
The NRA lobby has prevented the government from going after criminals with guns. Why is it not a federal crime to buy a bunch of guns in one state legally and then sell them illegally in another state? Why no full background checks? The NRA lobby.
The NRA has little if anything to do with the thousands and thousands of laws on the books currently. I am all for background checks or even longer waiting periods. Just don't want more limits placed on what I can buy as a law abiding citizen.
Express 10 is absolutely right. I to am for background checks , longer waiting times and mental competence tests but don't tell me what guns I have the option to buy.
England is a hell hole of crime right now and the average citizen can do nothing about it. Google is your friend and easily shows this with hundreds of current articles. And ED cannot refute that a gun takes a "person" to pull the trigger.
maharg...OUCH! I believe you have just told Americans off! However, I see your point, clearly. "Gun control," in our country, at this point, does seem a bit like using birth control after getting pregnant. We're really "nice people," you know.
Just thought I'd comment that Maharg is from the UK... The reason we originally needed to all have guns was to protect ourselves from your country! It feels great to have the freedom to protect myself. There's a reason the rage virus destroys the UK.
great comment NotPC. maharg can hate on us all he wants but he will never know what freedom really is, only what his Queen allows them to.
maharg gets his idea of "freedom" from Oliver Twist... "May I please have some more?"
Good points. There are already gun controls in the U.S.. This is not a debate over whether to establish them. Most people do not favor outright bans on all guns (a red herring), but want sensible laws to make it harder for psychotics to get guns.
I am amazed that you all figured out just how to get the crminals, crooks, and thugs to apply for a licenses to carry a gun. We've never solved that problem here in the U.S..
Go Roger D! See: https://hubpages.com/politics/Theyre-Coming-to-Tak...
Roger has no clue about guns. To anyone familiar with how guns work Roger sounds like a flat earther. He doesn't know the NFA of 1934 yet he is compelled to comment in his ignorance. And ~this~ is the "common sense" that we are supposed to trust?
Another poster who has no clue about so-called "assault weapons."
