There are millions of guns in the US right now so there's nothing anyone can do to prevent criminals from having access to guns. I'm more worried about the government trying to take my guns away, leave me defenseless against criminals who will still have access to guns even if I don't.
yes well, that's what Fox news and the NRA told you to be afraid of isn't it? And has any of that fear happened in any way, no it hasn't! Nobody is trying to take your guns away loser, just trying to stop them from getting into the wrong hands is all!!

And because every one of you continue to make excuses for not wanting to do the same, is exactly why I am calling you out. And looky here, just like I said, not one of you can take a reasonable approach to the problem!!!!

You don't care!

Except that are NOT killed by guns. They are killed by maniacs who use guns in GUN-FREE ZONES in order to carry out their maniacal plans of taking as many lives with them in an area where they KNOW they will not be met with ANY kind of violent response for a given length of time. In almost all mass shootings, what happens when the good guys WITH GUNS finally show up??? The homicidal maniac offs himself rather hastily. Adam lanza shot himself less than 60 seconds after the first cop arrived at Sandy Hook. Harris and Klebold shot themselves shortly after the police entered Columbine. And the same thing with Cho at VA Tech.
You want to keep these violent maniacs & felons from getting their hands on guns? Put their asses in an institution or behind bars where they belong, and leave them there to ROT instead of turning them loose on society.
Right, because you absolutely will not ever consider any reasonable change that addresses that EASY ACCESS TO GUNS!!!

Just like I keep telling you and you keep ignoring and making excuses for!

And you are correct. I will NOT consider ANY further infringement on my right to purchase an effective self-defense weapon, when that infringement will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING with regards to criminals obtaining theirs. Hell, our current Idiot-In-Chief even admitted that NONE of the gun control laws he proposed after the Sandy Hook shooting would have stopped Adam Lanza from carrying out his mass homicide.

The one thing that would have, an actual "responsible gun owner"!!!

Does closing loopholes in background checks increase or decrease the chances that a criminal will get his hands on a gun? A very f-en simple question you will NOT ANSWER

a) decrease
b) increase

I'll be waiting for your next diversion and excuse for NOT ANSWERING the question.

Answer:(c) neither....criminals don't follow the law.

1. no such thing as a background check loophole
2. prove to the group where universal background checks have EVER decreased crime where enacted when the criminals already have access to MILLIONS of firearms already on the street.

Open mouth insert foot, just like I said. So now you have 2 that you won't answer

If per your 1. there is no such thing as background check loopholes
Why is there such a thing as "universal background checks" which are NOT law?

"Does closing loopholes in background checks increase or decrease the chances that a criminal will get his hands on a gun? A very f-en simple question you will NOT ANSWER

JUST LIKE I SAID!!!!!!!!!!

You'll be 0 for 2 just like I said after you next diversion tactical response!!!!!

3rd question you can't answer

Why is it that your freedom of speech is not absolute (does not allow you to yell fire in a crowded theatre)?

I'm getting a little ashamed that YOU were out there defending something you don't understand!!
