And ^THAT is your favorite post when you have been proven to be FULL OF SHIT, Dannyboy.
Yet you called me a hypocrite for wanting to keep firearms out the hands of people who have already been proven to be a danger to themselves and others.
Oh my God - you are positively delusional.

LMAO! You have not only never proven I'm full of shit - you've never shown a single post where I did anything you've accused me of.

And I called you a hypocrite for wanting to take ALL rights away from the mentally ill instead of simply restricting their access to deadly weapons.

And we will continue to have one as long as there are evil souls walking this planet who wish to do harm to others. Find a way to get firearms out of there hands, and remove any ability for them to make more, then I will consider any gun control item you wish to push. Until then......GFY.
Another strawman. ESAD.

And yet you call me a hypocrite for saying THE SAME THING. Common sense, Dannyboy. And running around screaming "there's no proof it will work" isn't proof to the contrary either.
*sigh*

No - I called you a hypocrite for wanting to take ALL rights away from the mentally ill instead of simply restricting their access to deadly weapons.

How????(this oughta be good)
Here are some actions I have supported:
- Limiting magazine size.
- Universal background checks - mental and criminal - for all gun sales.
- Restricting the dangerously mentally ill from having firearms.
- Waiting periods for firearm purchases.
- Increased spending for treatment for the mentally ill.
- Trained armed guards in schools.
- Gun safety education and skills testing before anyone owns a gun.
- Legal and civil liability for anyone whose gun was used in a crime.

I support these measures because they would work to reduce gun violence.

And none of these measures would prevent you from owning firearms or protecting yourself (assuming you're not mentally ill, which is becoming more questionable by the day. LOL!).

How are you going to stop people from selling guns to felons, DongLiqueer?

I would be willing to bet that the majority of those people really wanted to off themselves because a gun is efficient for such a task.
You have already proved you don't pay off on your bets.

So you aren't going to find any takers.

Most suicides are spontaneous. The difference between a suicide by firearm and one by pills is there is a better than 85 percent chance the suicide attempt using a firearm will be successful.

Hence: the firearm bought for "family protection" is far more likely to end up taking the life of someone in the house it was going to protect.

where you support magazine capacity limits (which do NOTHING when a mag can be changed in less than one second).
No, not typically, it can't.

And typically in the several seconds it takes to reload, the gun man can be stopped.

As has been proved in many shootings.

There is no need for our society to have to tolerate the mentality of people who say they need large capacity magazines.

They certainly are not hunters.

If you want to restrict access to firearms to the dangerous mentall ill.......put their ass in a padded cell
If you want to restrict access to firearms to the dangerous mentally ill, start with making people who sell firearms find out who they are selling to, require background check.

Since you are more likely to be selling to a felon anyway.

Why require doing any background checks at all?

about 15 percent.

Lucky they can go to gun shows and buy the weapons from people like you who are happy to sell to strangers without background checks

You sell them the firearms.

I am more than happy to pass laws that make your responsible for those sales.

I say: sell a gun to a felon- or someone not allow to buy a weapon- make it a felony.

As a prosecutor, I'd deputize illegal buyers and send them to the gun shows by the busload.

Sound fair?

Due process, Dannyboy. If they are a danger to themselves or especially OTHERS, they need not walk among us. And I never said take ALL their rights away, did I. Even felons in prison retain some rights while they are their.

That is YOUR strawman.

But not the right to own firearms and most people understand why people should be required to check the person they are selling a gun to to see if he is a felon- since at least one out of ten people are felons, and of course felons are more inclined to want guns then the general population.

And people like you hold the doors open for them when they are going to gun shows.

Your common sense insists people should be able to sell guns to complete strangers without background checks.

So your kind of common sense isn't something the rest of us should have to put up with.

-Magazine size limits have NEVER proven to reduce gun violence.[strike one]
-Neither have universal background checks.[strike two]
-How would you restrict the dangerously mentally ill from getting firearms WITHOUT making sure they were someplace where the couldn't. You have NEVER specified anything to back this up.[strike three]
-Waiting periods have NEVER shown that they reduce gun violence. If anything, they have cost people their lives for not being able to arm themselves when their life was in danger.(happened to a girl here in VA a few years back who tried to buy a gun to protecct herself from an estranged husband and was KILLED by him while on the phone with a 9-1-1 dispatcher while she was in her waiting period. She also had one of those magical pieces of paper called a RESTRAINING ORDER.) By the way.....VA no longer has a waiting period.[strike four]
-More armed guards at schools.....I'll go along with. How about this......do away with gun-free zones all together. If Columbine, Aurora, the Amish school, Sandy Hook, VT et al have taught us anything, it is that gun-free zones just up the dead body count.)
-Why don't we go back to literacy tests for voting, too? How about a poll tax, or proving that you are a land owner before you can vote? How about a literacy test in order to speak in public? How about requiring a fee in order to address your state representative or Congressman. What other rights can we infringe upon when the USC specifically says that the govt CANNOT infringe on these rights? Here's an idea......let's make firearm safety training MANDATORY in all elementary and junior high schools. Then we won't have to worry about it later.
-How about leaving the civil and legal liabilities for those who actually commit the crimes. If someone steals your car, gets into a high speed chase with the cops and kills a family of four when he wrecks, should YOU be held liable for an act YOU had no control over???? Of course not.[strike five]

And you said that you don't support gun control.........ROFLMAO!!!!!!! !!
