Prepare for mass shootings like we've never seen before in the coming year

Because psychos are stocking up on firearms like never before



Black Friday breaks record with 185K gun background checks


More Americans had their backgrounds checked purchasing guns on Black Friday than any day in the on record, according to data released by the FBI this week.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,345 requests on November 27, one of the largest retail sales days in the country.

"This was an approximate 5% increase over the 175,754 received on Black Friday 2014," wrote Stephen Fischer, the FBI's chief of multimedia productions. "The previous high for receipts were the 177,170 received on 12/21/2012."

Previous spikes for background checks, conducted before a gun buyer can obtain a firearm, occurred after prominent mass shootings, like in December 2012 in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Other Black Friday shopping days in 2014, 2013 and 2012 occupied the FBI's "top 10" list of the most background checks processed in a 24-hour period.

Since 1998, FBI data shows that the bureau has processed requests for more than 220 million firearm purchases.

Licensed sellers deny sales to failed background checks based on a variety of factors including criminal backgrounds, domestic violence convictions or restraining orders.


http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/12/01/black-friday-breaks-record-185k-gun-background-checks/76624604/

I'm afraid we've lost on the stricter background check front.

You can't push for stricter background checks on psychos who already have guns. I think we have to start pushing for confiscations and outright bans.

What else can we realistically do?

10. Those AR platforms make great hunting rifles,

I have an AR platform rifls chambered in .308 with a 5 round mag for hunting, I can easily convert it to the .223 round for small game hunting or feral hog hunting.

19. AR-10?

 

By .308, do you mean 7.62x51 Nato, or something else in .308?

I didn't think an AR-15 upper could fit on a AR-10 lower, so I'm currious how that works. I have an AR-15 that I can shoot .22, .223 or .50 beowulf, so I know a bit about the platform.

Makes sense, I assumed it had to be something custom, I imagine there wouldn't be too much demand since an AR-15 is more popular and cheaper than the AR-10

And most murders are taking place in a select few metropolitan inner cities.

86. The OP, and apparently you, support "confiscations and outright bans."

 

This is most certainly not the position of the Democratic Party, and opposing such measures hardly a "Republican Senate celebration at Democratic Underground."

I guess it's once again time to review the actual Democratic Platform concerning firearms.

https://www.democrats.org/party-platform

Firearms. We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans' Second Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation. We understand the terrible consequences of gun violence; it serves as a reminder that life is fragile, and our time here is limited and precious. We believe in an honest, open national conversation about firearms. We can focus on effective enforcement of existing laws, especially strengthening our background check system, and we can work together to enact commonsense improvements—like reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole—so that guns do not fall into the hands of those irresponsible, law-breaking few.

8. Erection pills sales up too.

It’s an industry that’s growing, because the upside of our increased longevity is increased demand for drug companies’ products. By 2018, for example, the global prescription-drug industry is expected to be worth more than $870 billion – and more than $1 trillion by 2020.

That it would take a heavily armed force and gross abuses of civil liberties to pull this off.

I own firearms of which no record exists. Is the confiscation squad going to toss my entire house from attic to basement to see if I have arms or not? I know that image would get some people around here aroused.

Free clue: Our murder rate, with guns or without, is half what it was in the early 90's. That's 220 million checks since 1998, and in spite of that, violent crime continues to drop.

then you seem (at least to me) to flood the thread with passive aggressive posts, turn the thread into a giant flame war to the point where it gets locked then repeat the process.

Personally I don't mind but are you here of your own accord or do you represent a gun lobby like the NRA, GOA or any gun manufacturers?

You attribute far too much credit to me, this thread is the flamebait, as you damn well knew when you posted it.

The only firearm org I belong to is this one:

http://www.theliberalgunclub.com/



The mission of The Liberal Gun Club is to provide a voice for gun-owning liberals and moderates in the national conversation on gun rights, gun legislation, firearms safety, and shooting sports. We serve as a national forum for all people, irrespective of their personal political beliefs, to discuss firearms ownership, firearms use, and the enjoyment of firearms-related activities free from the destructive elements of political extremism that dominate this subject on the national scale. We also actively develop and foster a variety of programs for the purpose of firearms training and firearms safety education, for both gun owners and non-gun owners.

And I meant that both sincerely and literally. Invest in the best Kevlar body armor you can afford. Practice at the range. A lot. Basically, to be effective as a confiscation team member (and to even survive, for that matter), you'll basically have to become what you seem to oppose: a serious shooter.

Another suggestion: look at the actual data on gun-related homicide. You'll find that mass shootings constitute a very small fraction of those crimes. You're prioritizing the wrong guns and the wrong people.

Seems like a threat against Law Enforcement, are you two encouraging people to shoot police officers who try confiscate illegal firearms?

If that's the case, I don't see how making veiled threats to kill people helps your cause or demonstrates that gun owners like yourself are level-headed or responsible people.

140. Encouraging? Not in the least.

 

It's a horrific scenario that only a fool would want (or encourage).

But it's also how things would play out in the face of a serious attempt to enforce a ban. There are c. 80 million gun owners in the US, and there is no reason to believe that compliance rates would be any better than they have already proven to be in multiple US states that have enacted bans on certain weapons and/or magazines (that is to say <10%). That means that for a ban to actually reduce the number of firearms in civilian hands, it would have to be actively enforced...and some portion of that 90% will resist. Whether or not I think such resistance is a good thing or not (and I don't), it's what would result.

141. Of course it doesn't mean that.

 

For me, however, it means that there is a much larger priority in terms of gun control: keeping handguns out of the possession of criminals. The largest segment of gun-related homicide is made up of murders committed by persons with significant prior criminal records, and with handguns, not rifles.

While I'd like to think that both segments could be addressed at the same time, that might not be the case. If we on the left have to burn political capital to achieve any of these outcomes, I want that political capital spent where it will potentially save the most lives. I realize the argument can be made that in that large segment of gun murders committed by felons, the victims are very often felons, too...whereas mass shooting victims are almost always innocent victims and thus more deserving of the effort. But I'm not comfortable with that...I don't think that's a progressive stance.

70. Oh, you can keep your guns but...

 

As more firearms are distributed to people who ordinarily wouldn't own one and quite frankly probably shouldn't have one, its going to get a point where we're going to have so many mass shootings and random firearm attacks that people are going to be scared to visit the US, people are going to be afraid to go to large events, afraid to visit malls, afraid to take their children to school, afraid to walk down the street, afraid to bike, afraid to travel on buses, afraid to go out at night, afraid to travel on the roadway, afraid to protest, afraid to deliver mail, and other goods and afraid to patrol the streets.

When that happens, the economy is going to shut down, The National Guard is going to be deployed and people like you are going to have to have to make some hard choices about what it means to "keep and bear arms" and if its really worth it.

Let me remind you that not everyone who buys a firearm is going to lock it away, you're going to get people who are going to want to use them and they're not going to the shooting range. You're also going to get unstable people who are going to try to "one up" each other.

Just something to think about (although most probably won't).

I guess it's a matter of why are they making that point? To get us not to worry about it happening to us? And therefore leave it alone and take no further measures? So doesn't that just accept that they happen and allow that they happen, sort of like hurricanes?

There was a couple in Paris who were visiting from India. The gentleman said "I think this is our new global normal" and I think he is right. Not just Muslim extremists, but also people like the guy who shot up Planned parenthood or the guy who killed all the kids on that island in Norway.

People and groups are turning to violence and more people are arming themselves out of fear. But that fear will do nothing to stop what is happening. More guns is not the answer. What is also scary is that many people buying these weapon have no idea how to use those weapons and they have no idea how to react in a stressful active shooting situation.

Of course you do realize that you'll never get enough of the Congress to agree and much less than 3/4 of the states to ratify it, it would only take 13 states to knock it down, and even if by some wild remote chance you got your wish, it wouldn't ban the RKBA, it would then fall to the states to set their own firearm policies, and many states have the RKBA in their Constitutions.

But what the hell, give it a go, but even here on DU, there is no majority for outright repeal of the 2A nor is there a majority for bans and confiscation.

113. Yes, it needs to be repealed as it is a menace to our society

And yes, we need to ban and confiscate all guns with offenders jailed. Guns and the irrational fears espoused by the gundamentalists have no place in our country.

116. So in your plan , who does the confiscating?

You and your family members go door to door liking for guns or is that some other person/families job?

And you are pro prison system then too right because we are going to build and expand our prison system to hold all those caught with firearms. You are for that right !

109. It's reassuring to know that...

 

We have about 3 very vocal gunners here on DU. One is rabid in his support for the killing tool.

He's in every single gun thread here on DU and pretty much says the same shit over and over.

I can handle the small amount here on DU...even the most vocal ...because they are such a small very loud minority.

121. This is scary. It means more mass shootings, more cops killing unarmed civilians

because they're "afraid," more domestic violence deaths, and more. And ALL mass shootings, regardless of the motive, are terrorism, IMO.

Also, I wonder if the increased sales are because people who were previously anti-gun are now thinking: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

From your insane idea of confiscation and outright bans, it doesn't appear you have. Violent crime rates have been falling for decades, you can stop wetting your pants about it.

All the "Judges" do not disagree, 5 religio-fascist, authoritarian, misogynist, corpo-whores, two of them illegitimate, disagree.

What else, pray tell, do you agree with them on? I am sure the list is long.

As for the 2A, I still say it doesn't say what you think it says. Words matter. So does context. So does punctuation.

145. Thanks for asking.

 

As written:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."


The superior of the statement reads "A well regulated militia shall not be infringed". The two subordinant phrases are "being necessary to the security of a free state" and then "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms". The subordinants give support to the superior.

The way it is written leads to intent. The intent is to always have a militia at the ready because the founders did not intend to have a standing army. We now have a standing army. The militia is kind of mute, but I suppose could be likened to the national guard. But every kook be able to arm themselves to the teeth is nowhere in there.

As ratified it seems to me to confirm the above:

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

This writing says "the right of the people to keep and bears arms shall not be infringed" is given SPECIFICALLY for the purpose of a militia and a free state.

Gun fetishists believe it says "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" only, as evidenced by their nom de guerre "RKBA".

There is no individual right to any and all arms.

It's their right to do so, haven't you read the 2A? Says it right there, "the right to keep and hump arms,".

My worry is the "open hump" laws. Now that is obscene.
