Just another day in 2nd amendment America

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Raine1967 (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Welcome to America where guns are easier to get a hold of than the latest Star Wars toys.





You don't see this crap happening in the UK.

1. True. They use machetes

 

Not sure I'd want to get chopped up by a machete. A gun shot is one and done if I had to go. Not crazy about pain.

4. Congress and state legislatures need educating. No, need recycling.

We need gun laws to outlaw dangerous guns/bullets and to say goodbye to this ammosexual culture.

16. Reality check

Last time I checked, heroin was illegal in this country, yet it is readily available in all of our prisons. If we can't keep drugs out of the most secure facilities in our country, how do we keep guns out of this nation when our southern border is wide open?

8. Why not say goodbye to the criminal and gang culture?

aren't there many "cultures" at play when it comes to gun violence in America?

29. Why not instead target the real gun crime problems?

 

Scary-looking guns and "gun culture" aren't what's killing the vast majority of gun homicide victims. They're killed with handguns, more often than not by persons with no legal right to possess that firearm. The highest priority in gun regulation reform should be reducing the flow of firearms into the hands of prohibited persons. Straw purchases and "street sales" are the largest sources of guns for felons who cannot purchase them legally (a bigger vector, it seems, than theft). There are already laws against these transfers, but not nearly enough resources dedicated to identifying and prosecuting people who knowingly transfer a gun to a prohibited person. That needs to change.

5. You'll never convince White America to give up their guns

 

by showing videos of young black males shooting each other. Videos like this are the reason permissible CCW laws are passing in state after state.

12. Yes, darn those 'whites' for thinking perhaps protecting themselves is a good idea.

 

Also, whats 'white' and how do I tell if I'm looking at a 'white' person?

24. Theoretically, yes: the ToS.

In actual practice, getting banned is a bit more random than that...

28. What I'm getting at...

 

...is that the ToS is unevenly enforced. "Some animals are more equal than others." Beyond that, it's probably best I keep my yap shut...

37. Would including gang members on the 'no fly' list prevent them from obtaining firearms?

Better yet, how about legislation that would mandate a lengthy prison term for any known gang member, or anyone
affiliated with a gang, found in possession of a firearm?
