Okay, so we make AR-15's illegal and kooks who want to kill school children then start using 9mm handguns. If they have a history of using 9mm handguns, then should we make those illegal next?
Taking away choice does not solve a problem, especially when there are so many alternative choices.
Okay genius one more time, anyone can and will be able to buy it as long as it's stored in a locker at the shooting range - which is where it belongs.

What's interesting about "law abiding" citizens is they're law abiding right up to the point they're not.

You see, Democrats get their power from victims. The more victims you have in America, the more Democrat voters you have. They don't like people defending themselves because people who take care of themselves are not victims, and therefore, not likely to vote Democrat.
So we take most of the guns away from citizens thus empowering the criminal element. When the criminals have more power over us, then we become victims--something Democrat politicians drool over.
This is not about school shootings or gun restrictions really. it's about getting people more dependent on the federal government and their players.

That is why all liberals should be jailed......

As the vast majority of criminals and prisoners are liberals.

So to protect society we should just lock up all liberals to prevent crime.....

Nothing wrong with punishing you because some other liberal breaks the law.......

That is what the gun grabbers say.....

My shooting range is at my house in Sonoma county.......

So when I want to go up to Washington to shoot ground squirrels on the cattle ranches I can take it up there??

How about next deer season???

Didn't want to answer the question I see. Really can't blame you either. You know as well as I that banning assault weapons won't stop the next school shooting. They may use many different alternatives, but no kook is going to say "Darn, I wish they didn't ban AR-15's, otherwise I would break into that school down the street and kill a bunch of kids."

When you stand behind legislation that does no good other than to make you feel better, you solved nothing.

What's even more interesting than that is laws only work on law-biding citizens. They don't work on criminals. That's why they're criminals in the first place.

Every time it's tried. Gay's, smokers, environment, you name it. They say they only want X, and when they get it, they're happy for a short while. But when they become sad again, they go after getting Y and then Z.

Your opening statement is correct. We all start out as law abiding. Given that premise; do you propose punishing everyone for what they might do?
The entire statement is accurate.

Laws are designed to push those "... for what they might do." That's the nature of the beast.
Yeah

That would be your personal opinion son.

You're observation also works in reverse. Cons don't like victims because (according to you) they will vote democrat. Politics and your agenda plays into your motives. So you go into fud mode and spread the worst case scenario while supplying the gun as the answer to all your ills.

Clearly murders are not important to right wing extremists. Guns are held higher at the alter.
Yeah

Murder and all violent crime has been on the decline for the last couple of decades. Only a Democrat doesn't live by the rule "if it's not broke--don't fix it."

We've seen some pretty positive results as an armed society, and again, that means people are taking care of themselves without the mothering of the federal government.

The real problem in our country is brainwashing. Your politicians lead you on this belief that restricting clip size or assault weapons will be the answer we were looking for in regards to school shootings. Yet, because you are sheep, you never bother to think independently and ask yourself "Are any of these proposed regulations going to stop murder or school shootings?" Of course not. Why should you ask? They say--you do.

We conservatives are much more logical. We know that taxing the wealthy will not solve one of our economic woes. We know that banning assault weapons will not stop one shooting in America. We understand political expediency and the BS that comes out of politicians all the time.

Do as I say--not as I do.

lol! Right.

No wonder bushie invaded iraq. He pulled a fast one over the American people.

No wonder the best you had to offer in November was a guy who said he would solve unemployment by creating employment. The same guy who didn't care about 47% of Americans just so he can raise money.

It's amazing what you right wing extremists stand for.
