That's a lie.
Of course.
And you told us that homicides went done twenty years in a row year.
A lie.
What a shame it is that Topix does not allow badges to be attached to your alias- in your case, aliases- every time you are proved to have lied.

No, you are a walking, talking lie:

Joyce Lee Malcolm: Two Cautionary Tales of Gun Control

After a school massacre, the U.K. banned handguns in 1998. A decade later, handgun crime had doubled.

Americans are determined that massacres such as happened in Newtown, Conn., never happen again. But how? Many advocate more effective treatment of mentally-ill people or armed protection in so-called gun-free zones. Many others demand stricter control of firearms.

We aren't alone in facing this problem. Great Britain and Australia, for example, suffered mass shootings in the 1980s and 1990s. Both countries had very stringent gun laws when they occurred. Nevertheless, both decided that even stricter control of guns was the answer. Their experiences can be instructive....

...According to their study, the use of handguns rather than long guns (rifles and shotguns) went up sharply, but only one out of 117 gun homicides in the two years following the 1996 National Firearms Agreement used a registered gun. Suicides with firearms went down but suicides by other means went up. They reported "a modest reduction in the severity" of massacres (four or more indiscriminate homicides) in the five years since the government weapons buyback. These involved knives, gas and arson rather than firearms.

In 2008, the Australian Institute of Criminology reported a decrease of 9% in homicides and a one-third decrease in armed robbery since the 1990s, but an increase of over 40% in assaults and 20% in sexual assaults.

What to conclude? Strict gun laws in Great Britain and Australia haven't made their people noticeably safer, nor have they prevented massacres. The two major countries held up as models for the U.S. don't provide much evidence that strict gun laws will solve our problems.

I think the demorats far, far, far exceed the Repubicans in this area. 95 percent of all murders are perpetrated by individuals with demorat and social liberal ideology.

So you don't know anything about contracting prison labor, either.
I would say a far better application to tax money would to be hired people who aren't convicted felons and put them on the side of the road picking up garbage.
Of course, garbage on the road is more a problem in the south were people are more accustomed to throwing trash out of the window of moving cars.
Nastyass Bigot! Let me guess, you live in one of those open cesspools up north called big cities, eh? So you insist that we give those jobs to your pet illegal aliens. Too bad most of them are felons from some other country, that's why they came here under the radar. Deporting all illegal aliens is another way to reduce violent crime but you leftists want to molly-coddle the criminal invaders and abrogate the rights of your fellow Americans. Can you say traitor?

And you have yet provided a solution of your own.
As far as garbage issues on roadways, it is common throughout the US, and simple observation from my travels shows the worst places are urban centers regardless of the
geographic location.

Maybe you misunderstood my post, should I clarify it for you? These scumbags who have committed the majority of these crimes have come from the political left. Therefore, people on the political left present a greater danger to society than those who are aligned like myself.

IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH 2ndamright OR ANY OF HIS MANY ALIASES , DO NOT BEND OVER IN FRONT OF HIM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES . A panel of experts has recently determined that this poor INBRED’S complete inability to attract any attention from either sex has driven him to the rather bizarre behavior of impersonating Americans. He is doing this in the hope of attracting either reverend ted hagg.ard or a priest with a tub of vaseline, to which he hasn’t been successful.
He has now resorted to trying to kornhole his own aliases. This creature can most commonly found on the TOPIX gun threads, erect, spinning around like a dog chasing it’s tail, while trying to get at his own butt. It is also highly recommended that in the case of accidental contact you rinse yourself off with bleach and burn the clothes you were wearing

Let's see: he bought a shotgun, that would make him a gun owner.
He used it on unarmed human beings: that would make him a gun gnutter.
He had a leftist political ideology, he had anger issues, nothing in the proposed or current background system would have flagged him, and he chose to attempt to kill his debate teacher over an argument. He shot an unarmed student who had nothing to do with his gripe.

He was a leftist coward who lost an argument, and when an armed officer confronted him, he chose to take his own life instead of being responsible for his actions.

Your "gun nutters" are not the leftist killing our children. Maybe we should add a new flag, left leaning internet ranters should not have access to firearms.

Felons are stay felons unless pardoned (for state crimes) by the governor of their state.
This is a fact: I gave you a link that had pictures for crying out loud, it can't be explained using smaller words.
I know how badly you want to sell them firearms.
You really are dumber than a box 'o rocks, aren't ya? No one is even arguing that point. However, being the brain dead POS that you are, no one expects you to understand that so just keep up the screechy parrot noise and us normal sane people will continue to ignore you.

BTW, just because someone is constantly cramming something up your azz, don't think the rest of the world lives that way. It's only you and your sexually deviant liberal pals, the rest of us are normal sane people. Now take your deliberately misinterpreted bullshit and stick up your azz along with all that other stuff you have crammed in there and run back to your peephole behind the urinal.

The gun shop owner has no legal right to ask someone if they are a "psycho". And no sane person would answer the question anyways. Does the Dept. of Motor Vehicles get to answer a potential licensee if they are a "psycho"? Yet, more people are killed by vehicles than firearms ever will in America.
Why are you so afraid of We The People exercising our Constitutionally secured right?
Because your constitutional 2nd amendment right to point a gun at me ends at my body and once you pull the trigger, you can't stop the bullet from ending all my constitutional rights.

I can't speak for 2dnAmRight but I suspect he will agree. If I ever point a gun at you it will only be because you are attempting to harm or kill me or someone under my protection. If that's the case, you won't have time to object. You must remember that, while we all have the unalienable right of self defense, one is only justified in using deadly force when threatened with deadly force. It's really not that complicated.

No it wasn't As you said the wealthy have(and always will) oppressed the poor. Our structure is no different, in that regard. What our structure does is mask the "wealthy" (you dont know who exactly they are) and sell a dream of "equality" and "freedom" that in reality doesnt exist.

Bribe? No. Who do these people work for? How many $10k campaign dinners have you attended? If you put in a call to your congressmen, or your governor, does he/she take your call? If you invite your Senator to your house for dinner to discuss your ideas for a new bill does he/she show up? They dont work for "We The People", "We The People" work for them.

The only off-kilter thought here is your sore mouth about that "democratic party". The party system is just another ruse to keep you distracted. Are you any less oppressed under obama than you were under bush? If you really think so, how? Im going to go out on a limb and say that your life ultimately had no marked change comparatively. Remember dazzled with bullshit and nonsense.....

How might that happen? If you are confronting me with a weapon in your hand, what mistake could be made about your intentions? If your intentions aren't to do violence on me, why would you be confronting me with a weapon in your hand?

Thanks for the updates. They are tossing us a bone in order to pacify us. That is how their game works. We now must press on and fight harder.
