52. Yes, there will be a civil war if the government bans LCMs
Do you even realize how ridiculous this sounds?

The sad part is you're not the only one to share such distorted beliefs, and that's where the problem lies and why common sense gun legislation can't be passed. The NRA fights every single effort to regulate gun ownership. The LCM ban did have an effect on criminals. So it did "make a difference" regardless of what you think, and there's plenty of other legislation that has the potential to make a difference also. It is going to take some time thanks to the NRA which has been fighting legislation for decades thanks to people who think the slightest regulation like banning the sale of LCMs and requiring background checks or gun registration means the government is going to go door to door seeking guns and bibles.
