Good. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. And the answer to your question is no. Because the mentally ill and criminal are free to roam anywhere they please instead of being locked up where they belong.
We have 2 million people in our prison system, more than anywhere else in the world.

As our prison budget rises, our school budgets shrink and guess what dumbing down America now costs us? It costs $80,000 per year to house one prisoner. You do the math....$80k X 2,000,000.

I guess if you think that is tax dollars well spent, than I'm wasting key strokes.

isn't it funny how the armed retards keep ignoring the stats that all the developed nations with good gun control measures have the lowest gun homicides...
instead, all they want to do is jerk off about their their rights...
why don't they jerk 0ff about their rights to being searched at airports...or their rights to carrying a pocket knife onto an airline...
Ignorance and fear go hand in hand.
That's the mantra of the NRA and the reason they have been
so successful in turning us into a militia state.

It really is quite simple. If someone is convicted of a violent felony, you don't keep throwing them back in jail over and over again. Once they have proven to be nothing more than a danger to society.......YOU ELIMINATE THEM. Period. You don't keep putting them back on the street to be arrested them again for doing the same thing. The only reason the death penalty isn't a better deterrent is because it is not enfored enough.

Also, stop spending 80,000 dollars a year per inmate. You make life in prison HARD instead of coddling these assholes with three hots and cot and cable TV. Put their butts back on chain gangs and make them pay off their debt to society. Sherrif Joe Arpaio has it down to a science.

So much for a civilized society.
It's people like you who entertain extremely violent thoughts
that shouldn't be allowed to own guns or roam freely.
Yikes, is this country in trouble.

"Clearly gun use in the US is out of control and unless we do something about it the international community should intervene."
...NOT mine.
Clearly, the point in my post has gone over your head, besides the UN is already working on an international gun treaty!

A civilized society doesn't further endanger the general populus by returning violent criminals to the streets to further victimize the innocent. If these violent people wish to act like feral animals and threaten the innocent, they deserve nothing more than to be PUT DOWN like feral animals.

Evil people exist, whether you want to face that FACT or not. They are here for nothing more than to cause pain and suffering to others, and no amount of rehabilitation will EVER convert them. And if you are not willing to rid society of them PERMANENTLY, then you must be prepard to spend a LOT of money to keep them safely away from those they would bring harm to. I'll choose the less expensive of the two. What say you???

Send them to a gun show where they can buy firearms from people like you who insist you have a right to sell them to anyone that has the cash.

A lie?

You don't read your own brochures, StickyLips?

It's very simple: when you sell a gun to someone, either you do a background check or you don't have the foggiest idea whatsoever if he/she is a felon or not.

And you insist you have the right to sell to complete strangers without doing a background check.

I'm not the one who has to pretend there's no loophole, Sticky.

Actually, a civilized society doesn't put them to death or put them in prison forever.

Putting aside you insist you are worried about "endangering" society by returning felons to the streets but you continue to fight tooth and nail for the "right" to sell these felons guns.

Funny how these horrible felons are roaming the streets but at least when they get out, they aren't carrying guns.

Until they go to a gun show that you are running - the firearm for felons program - in states like Virginia that all too happy to sell to people whom you don't have a clue.

Most of us gun owners are smart enough to understand you don't sell guns to complete strangers, especially at gun shows that advertise private sales free of background checks.

I love how the democrat is seen in the FBI video with a pump shotgun and not an AR15. This is much like the Sandy Hook lie, where they claim the shooter used an AR15 but in reality the AR15 never left the shooters car.

The more guns takeover this country, the weaker we become and soon our tourism industry will collapse. Who in their right mind would bring their family here when 100,000 people every year are either wounded or killed by guns in our once great country?
I'm thinking of moving to Canada, maybe even Australia, in the future and every day I pray my kids are safe in school, the mall, the movies, at the park, the library, church, post office, work, hell....is there anywhere in this country that we haven't had a mass shooting incident?
"Sick people go to hospitals and sometimes they die. Doesn't mean the doctors killed them, you twit."

Guess you didn't read...or didn't comprehend what was posted...or didn't follow the link...so here it is again. Read a little slower. See if you can comprehend the meaning of "bad hospital care contributed to the deaths"...or..."prev entable harm that contributes to their death"...or..."medic al errors the third-leading cause of death". That means their death was cause by the doctors or the hospital...NOT from some disease or sickness that they went there for.

Read;

In 2010, the Office of Inspector General for Health and Human Services said that bad hospital care contributed to the deaths of 180,000 patients in Medicare alone in a given year.

Now comes a study in the current issue of the Journal of Patient Safety that says the numbers may be much higher between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year who go to the hospital for care suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death, the study says.

That would make medical errors the third-leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease, which is the first, and cancer, which is second.
