You better be worrying about the Mentally Ill People more than the Criminals. The Mass Murderers usually don't have criminal records, or a criminal background...they're just crazy and want to kill innocent People for no valid reason, other than they're CRAZY! They bad part is that they usually LOOK perfectly normal...and NOW, they're all going to have guns. What could possibly go wrong?...SMH...(and rolling my eyes)...
Frankly, I think that Judge needs to have a Mental Evaluation!
thats why I say ...... Any person intent on doing harm .... Can ....... But if more law abiding citizens evoke their rights to legally carry a firearm ...... The playing field is at least level ...... And damage can be kept to a minimum ........how many of you think that if we had armed guards in our schools ........

While that's a good point, the thoughts of some Kid, or Kids, getting caught in the cross-fire of a gun battle in the hall of a school, makes cold chill bumps run up and down my spine. The Guards would stop shooting, but the crazy gunman, wouldn't.
Surely, we can come up with a better solution, if we put our Minds to it.

hands on AR why would you hope anyone is afraid of you? That fear can get you shot from ambush. G-UNIT your type of ramblings are one of the reasons a lot of people ARE FOR gun control. WT Sassy your type of nonsense causes a lot of the ramblings like G-UNITs. I own guns no classes, no finger prints, and no approvals. My grandfather gave me my first gun (a 22 rifle) when I was five years old. He taught me how to shoot, how to hit what I shoot at, aqnd how to do these things in a safe and responsible manner. He and my parents taught me the difference between right and wrong, to respect all life, and to love my country. As for gun free zones; just tells the bad guys where to operate without fear. There are more than enough gun laws on the books now "ENFORCE THEM" use a gun to commit a crime: If no one dies go to jail, if someone dies "can you spell firing squad?" Gun Control=hitting what you shoot at.

It is rumored that the gun sales increased substantially after this incident in Ferguson. In 10 days more 'thugs' can kill innocent people. Maybe Brown wasn't innocent ... I still contend had the cop handled it different from the first stop in middle of road, the kid didn't need to die.

There are plenty of other people (not black) that died because of trigger happy cops too, let us please not forget about them. This is the time to get the nation's attention on the inability of those authority figures paid to 'serve and protect'.

There are too many innocent lives (one is too many) being taken and some of it most assuredly is by LEA's. Is anyone talking about that aspect of this story ? I agree, there has to be some better way and we need strong voices that will speak until they can't, we need change.

your opinion and yours only ........ The gun control came out of your mouth not mine .......if you have never been in a situation like I was ..... Good for you...... But you should think about those of us who have .... The physical damage is one thing ...... The emotional is another ...... Could care less bout gun control ....... That battle will and has raged for years and years ....... My point is simply this ....... If more responsible citizens were armed and willing to take action ....... Things might be different ...... Let the debate rage ........ Really don't care ....... Of course we all know Texas has it's shit together right ????? NOT !!!!!!

Start paying attention to how many Police Cars you still see with the "Serve and Protect" still written on them. Most of them took that off a long time ago. They "Serve", but they can't and don't "Protect", anymore.
My Boss pointed that out to me, in the early 2000's.

Yep! Everybody still calls me "Sassy", and I liked that Name better, before I gave it up to shut the Trolls up, anyway, so when I got tired of logging in and out, I just started changing my User Name, like everybody else does, when I felt like doing it. But now, it's getting to be too much of a hassle, thinking of and typing in a new name every time I make a Post, unregistered.

I think I'll log back in and show you, I need to check my messages, anyway...so, stay tuned.

Heck, let's just go back to the days of the Wild, Wild West and have legal gunfights right out in the middle of the streets, to settle any differences of opinion. You Gun Nuts ought to love that!
This Nation, and way too many of it's Citizens and People in Authority, has literally gone insane!
That crazy judge will be lucky if one of the Gun Nuts that he rules against, doesn't shoot him while he's sitting on the Bench! It probably wouldn't be any great loss, if his other Rulings are as crazy as this one.

Every gun I have purchased I have had a back ground check.
If a person is set on homicide,suicide they can easily use a knive/hammer/sword,car,truck,r ock, a good push off a cliff,rope,garden hose,fork,razor,belt and guess what you don't have a ten day waiting period to buy these items.
For suicide this is true, using those things are a very real possibility. Homicide is a different story though. I am nearing graduation with a degree in criminal psych, and can tell you, as I've said before, crimes of passion are very very rarely done by anything other than guns. Not that I'm against people owning guns, I'm certainly not, but a waiting period isn't the worst idea ever. See most people that commit crimes of passion aren't cold blooded killers and aren't capable of stabbing or strangling someone. Those crimes take time, and are very hands on and personal. Wife catches man with another woman in their house, she grabs the gun fires three times in blind rage. That's unconnected, an easy way to commit the crime. However, if she goes and gets a knife, she has to feel each stab penetrating flesh and muscle. Most can't stomach that. Strangling a person with bare hands takes an estimated 50+ seconds of sustained pressure to finish the job, most aren't cold blooded enough to kill that way. There is a reason very few serial killers use guns. Son of Sam, Zodiac, and that's about it. The DC sniper isn't a serial killer btw, he's a mass murder, the two are different. See serial killers enjoy the kill. Its usually (but surprisingly not always) a sexual release for them. You'll also notice all the spree killings are almost always with guns. Research backs my argument here but feel free to disagree. Why should you let facts sway your opinions?

Me neither:)

No one in his/her right mind WANTS to shoot or kill anyone..
However, nor do they wish for anyone to shoot or kill them.......That's a biggie, therefore; people will use methods to defend themselves....That's just common sense...

Why go unarmed when criminals and crazies don't...Doesn't make a lot of sense to me..

Look at Chicago for example...One of the strictest gun laws in the entire country, and it's a shooting gallery.

Colombine, Sandy Hook, Arizona (movie theater), California (the Nut in the car, killing college students at random)...those are just the Ones I can think of off-hand...all done with guns, committed by the Mentally Ill...and ordered off the Internet, if memory serves.

I don't think we need a abolishment of the background checks, I think we need Mental Health Facilities and an easier way to access them, if we think somebody has a problem.
I don't know if they would do the Person any good, but at least, it would get that Person on SOMEBODY'S radar, before they hurt an unsuspecting Person, or People.
And somebody on here made a very good point, saying that if everybody had a gun, it wouldn't stop the shootings, because the Killers would just ambush you...or, shoot you in the back!
If a Shooter is going to shoot you, he/she would already have you killed before you could get your gun out to use it, if you are the target and on the street because, they have the element of surprise in their favor.

Good points, all of course.
We definitely need some sort of mental screenings, though who knows what that would entail.

NO matter the scenario however, you have a gun for self protection, you at least have a chance.......Without one, you have NO chance....

Well I thinks it's a great idea. It gives them a chance to do a full back round check, criminal, mental or whatever. It will give people who buys guns in rash decisions a chance to stop, think and cool off. Maybe someone was thinking of murder or suicide, that 10 day waiting period could save someone's life. Granted you can buy guns off the street, but some don't know how or where. If you are buying a gun for personal reason such as target shooting, hunting, protection then that 10 day wait is not a big deal. The only ones that have a issue are the ones who have intentions. But this is only my option.
So do you think a person contemplating suicide or murdering someone with a gun is going to admit to the person selling the gun or filling out the federal form I'd going to state that their going to kill themselves or someone else? You're an typical mentally deformed liberal if that's what you think.

Not only mine G-UNIT, you might be surprised at the number of people that agree with me. What came out opf my mouth was the truth. Rants like yours spur the anti-gun freaks in their quest for more and more laws and regulations. As to your situation, the bad gun situation I had would make yours like a walk in the park. But you should care about gun control or you may find yourself without one. While Texas may not have ALL of its s--- together, a good many of us have our guns and the good sense not to rant like a gun toting lunitic.

We all need to calm down and wait a hot minute before accusing others. The gun issue is divisive and emotional. Cooler heads must prevail before we all go off the rails. We need to learn from the example of Norway because King Olaf confiscated all the guns there and then the people had no way to defend themselves when the Nazis invaded. They were all skiing when the invasion came because they had no rifles to shoot. The second amendment must stand, come hell or high water.

'Police have released footage of the moments before a nine-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her shooting instructor who was teaching her to use an automatic Uzi submachine gun.
Charles Vacca was shot in the head on Monday at an outdoor shooting range in Dolan Springs, in north Arizona....'
That was a rental gun, and no waiting period applies. Possibly bad judgment on the part of a parent ( gotta know your kids limitations ) and definitely a lapse of attention by the instructor. I shoot with my grandchildren often, we have for years. Some are driving now, but even as young adults, I hover. One hand in the small of the back, and the other ready to manage recoil. It really pisses the older ones off sometimes, but they accept it until they have proven proficiency.
Regardless, this scenario has nothing to do with the topic.
You must be looking for the "ban all guns" thread.
