Wow!

Due to Immigration policies, not gun control.

Why do you suppose the USA has more guns than any other industrial country and more firearm deaths?
You liberals keep trying to sell your debunked propaganda. There are 27 countries with a higher gun death rate than the US.

Common sense dictates that a weapon which fires rapidly as long as I pull the trigger is a very, very dangerous weapon. It could kill a lot of people very fast, depending on how much ammo you have.
No one objects to single-shot weapons, or moderate-sized clips or magazines. When you get even semi-automatic assault rifles with 30 or more bullets in the magazine, however, you have an increasinly dangerous weapon which people don't really need.
Unless they're planning to go out and blow away 30 schoolkids or something.
Have you ever been squirrel hunting while your drunk?
Probably not, but i have and believe me i need a gun that fires rapidly because i can't usually hit one of them little fast running bastards the first time while holding a can of Miller.
I need those extra shots or i might not be getting squirrel legs and eggs for breakfast and that pisses me off.

<quoted text>PS: Reason crime (generally) going down... is: criminals are in jail (more frequently and longer), police are better than they used to be, and criminals are getting older.
I think you meant,
BS: instead of PS:

Prisons are overcrowded and the population is growing. There are new young criminals to replace older ones. The risk of getting shot by the would be victims has reduced crime.

PS: there are lots of guns in Mexico. They buy them from USA gun shows.
No, Obama and Holder do and transport the guns to the Mexican Cartels so they can say,"look at US guns in the hands of these Mexican murderers, we need more gun control". They just didn't expect to get caught at it. But they did. Miraculously, they didn't even get a slap on the wrist.

US government openly admits arming Mexican drug gangs with 30,000 firearms - but why?
But you lie.

Maybe you should read past the first line of the blogs you copy and past from?

Do show us:**WHO** exactly admits "arming" Mexican drug gangs with 30,000 firearms.

Let me help you out: the 30,000 weapons you claim are confiscated weapons that the Mexican government asserts (probably correctly) some 70 percent coming from the USA.

And most of these bought and sold through gun shows where straw buyers drive through the NRA loop holes.

Happy to see that link, azzwipe.

Prisons are overcrowded because the prison population is INCREASING.
