Gun Control


#955

Why gun control would never work. Look at how small a percent of guns used in crimes are acquired through legal means. The data actually says the background check system does a good job of preventing criminals from legally buying a gun.

It also says the gun show loophole that is a favorite democrat talking point isn’t much of a contributor. All the gun control rhetoric does nothing to address criminal illegals obtaining guns which is how the vast majority of them are getting them today.

About 21% of state and 20% of federal prisoners said they possessed a gun during their ofense, while 79% of state and 80% of federal prisoners did not.
„
About 29% of state and 36% of federal prisoners serving time for a violent ofense possessed a gun during the ofense.
„
About 1.3% of prisoners obtained a gun from a retail source and used it during their ofense.
„
Handguns were the most common type of frearm possessed by state and federal prisoners (18% each); 11% of all prisoners used a handgun.
„
Among prisoners who possessed a gun during their ofense, 90% did not obtain it from a retail source.
„
Among prisoners who possessed a frearm during their ofense, 0.8% obtained it at a gun show.
„
About 1 in 5 state and federal prisoners who possessed a frearm during their ofense obtained it with the intent to use it during the crime.
„
Among state prisoners who possessed a gun during their ofense, 27% killed someone with it, another 12% injured someone, 7% fred the gun but did not injure anyone, and 54% did not fre it.

„State prisoners with no military service were more likely to possess a gun during their ofense (21%) than prisoners who had served in the military (16%).

Do you remember when you were a kid and you may done this exact same thing (chronicled why you should get X and why you deserved it) and your parents still said no? Can we do that again? No!

That will be struck down pretty easily.

I read an interesting article today. It seems that the San Diego city attorney’s office has begun confiscating weapons from people that are mentally ill, people that are stalking others, or people that make threats against others on social media. They just confiscated their 100th weapons. Sounds like a reasonable program.


#961

If there’s some probably cause, and especially if the person is legally prohibited for owning the weapon e.g. they’ve been adjudicated mentally defective it’s all fine. Enforcing laws already on the books. If it’s responding to anonymous tips and confiscation without charging the individual with any crime than it’s another matter entirely. Hard to know without evaluating all 100 of those cases.

Venezuelans regret gun ban, 'a declaration of war against an unarmed population.

As Venezuela continues to crumble under the socialist dictatorship of President Nicolas Maduro, some are expressing words of warning – and resentment – against a six-year-old gun control bill that stripped citizens of their weapons.

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”

Oh…glad to be back, wait! Kind of glad to be back to my country. Bunches of shootings while I was in Costa Rica. You know, real estate there is good. :laughing::laughing:

But, my point is that one guy here, my boy, told me once that if I didn’t invest or something like that “in real estate” I should be quiet.

Well, my reply to him is the same, if you don’t have kids, not even miserably married, shut the hell up because I have kids and I am tired of worrying every time there’s a lack down for some suspicious person roaming around with a possible gun in his hands.

Regarding the other dumb party supporting arming any idiot with guns, because we have seen it, they support giving guns to mentally ill “second amendment loving guys”. That’s from the guys who don’t have kids at all.

The very example of the fear of the government was depicted during that standoff between the federals and the Bundy family, if I wrote their right name. They didn’t shoot to defend themselves, did they? The cowards they are. Why don’t they join the army? :laughing:

How old are you? 6? :scream:

That’s a picture of a Polish, Hungarian, Italian, French, who knows European peasants, probably Jewish being shot by the Nazis or their puppets in the second world war after Germany invaded several countries that………….let me say it and repeat it for you……….countries that had armies!

Yesterday, 1 year anniversary of the Parkland massacre. Did we hear any POS second amendment supporter or their POS president sending “thoughts and prayers” to the families that lost their kids? :face_with_head_bandage::scream::cold_sweat:

PARKLAND, Fla. — Hundreds of thousands of students and adults across Florida and beyond observed a moment of silence Thursday to mark the first anniversary of the shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 17 people dead.

“It’s a permanent sore spot,” said Fort Lauderdale High School junior Jake Lynch. “Forever me going forward, I’ll feel this day, and this time and those names. It reminds me of where I want the world to be. … From suffering better things come out.”

The massacre on Feb. 14, 2018, inflamed the national debate over guns, turned young people into political activists and gave rise to some of the biggest youth demonstrations since the Vietnam era.

You are a bad writer.


#968

But I am a good person. I am not an idiot supporting the massacre of our kids in schools.

Let’s keep the uneducated a little bit educated:

Across the nation, these problems keep coming to light: A man who killed 26 people at a Texas church in 2017 passed a background check to get a weapon despite a military conviction for domestic assault that should have barred him from having guns.

A man who killed nine people at a South Carolina church in 2015 bought his gun after a background check failed to immediately reveal that he had admitted possessing a controlled substance.

Last year, a man killed four people at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee using an assault weapon that he had been required to give up under the Illinois law just eight months before.

So, of course, if the current laws aren’t
being enforced lets just go pass more laws.
Brilliant.


#971

Some dumb people say I can’t write English, no problem, I laugh at them. But I believe the same should be said about those who say they know English pretty well…but can’t read it! It’s about enforcing the existent laws!

:sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

#1…despite a military conviction for domestic assault that should have barred him from having guns.

#2…a background check failed to immediately reveal that he had admitted possessing a controlled substance.

#3…an assault weapon that he had been required to give up under the Illinois law just eight months before.

Enforcing ‘existing’ laws, not ‘existent’ laws.

Ohhh…mister literacy, the grammar cop, now we go to semantics when the topic is about some fanatics, whom I call idiots, you know, those who don’t have kids supporting the killing our kids in schools? OK…:wink:
By the way, we’ll be having some fun bringing you some postings from my fellow posters on this forum, who are as English challenged as I am. :laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:

“”“There was a court decree called the Flores Consent Decree that determined by the way- this has been existent way before Donald Trump. — Fox News, “Darrell Issa reacts to release of Carter Page FISA documents; Judge Jeanine addresses ‘The View’: I’d like to move on,” 22 July 2018 The 50-mm was also an already existent lens dimension that optical companies like …”""

I love this forum, provides me with lots of entertaining moments. Now, hurry! Go check if I you wrote something wrong because I will post it! :laughing::laughing::laughing:

Finally, what I have always advocated, a gun control in America.

I always said it……“it’s the gun you idiot!” :laughing:
