Fact: the background checks the Dems want would not have prevented the last shootings. Yes I have carried a derringer as a self defense firearm. Not single shot but two. Australia’s buy back program has been an utter failure. Read it and weep
Thats why i cited licensing in my argument because it's better. A License takes 3 weeks and a standard background takes a minute and a half. 97% of applicants get the license but that 3 weeks is a blessing for people in a mental crisis. And for Australia you can count on your hands how many incidents happen in the last decade but in America it is just increasing in frequency year after year.
Australians are afraid of guns. America loves them. Licensing would not have prevented the shootings either. All you’re doing is making it harder for law abiding citizens to arm themselves. You’re forgetting criminals won’t follow your stupid laws
Like i said pro gun people should be leading this change but sitting on there hands. The MPAA for movies and ESRB for video games regulates there own industry by the experts in those industries outside of government control. The gun industry just uses the 2ed to get away with murder. If you regulate yourselfs with gun experts holding back you dont have public opinion breathing down your necks. Regulate yourselfs and avoid this shaky heavy hand government controls that is getting harder and harder to fight with every shooting.
Another fact is in the 80’s there were very few if any had carry laws of any kind. The only people carrying were criminals. That strategy obviously didn’t work so now more and more states are adopting constitutional carry to level the playing field. It isn’t law abiding gun owners making or setting the rules. It’s criminals and law abiding citizens have the right to use guns to protect themselves. The Supreme Court even ruled that
Reactionary measures by criminals are an ass backwards way to go about things. I personally want gun experts that knows the ins and outs of guns and is willing to tackle problems that personally effect them. That doesn't exist so there is only public pressure root.
Again. It’s criminals making the rules like it or not
Take it back is what I'm saying. The current NRA are selling and profiteering more from criminals killing our neighbors and jeopardizing your own ability to defend yourselfs for short term monetary gains. Take that control back by regulating it on personal expert's. Not selling on the side criminals to make a profit, jeopardizing everyone's well being.
Criminals don’t get guns legally usually
Then let the law handle that situation and strengthen your own meaning as a regulation force, a win win really. You only care about legal gun owners, any government force strengths that regulates community. There needs to be experts regulations for guns by there own terms or a half assed government controlled system. Pick your poison now because the worse choice is being forced for the time being.
Citizens need personal protection now. Citizens have been disarmed and banned from carrying weapons for too long. Guns aren’t allowed in schools, malls, clubs, banks and federal buildings but that hasn’t stopped criminals. You want to disarm citizens for a study? How will you disarm criminals to sit down and have a chat?
Like I've said over and over again, there is no regulation in place. So this public pressure opinion is coming down on you. The NRA is Profiteriring on the fearful and criminals creating an endless loop of money at the expense of American rights that you are defending. Do something about it. Or the government majority who doesn't care about you will do it for you.
There’s all kinds of regulations. How can you say that?
I'm wanting regulation by gun experts not the heavy handed government.
How will your experts keep them out of criminals hand?
One, it's not my experts i believe in, i don't care in anyway for guns (ban every gun for the amount of shits im able to give.) It's your experts im putting faith in for the best results. I'm saying create a new regulation group by your own experts just like MPAA and the ESRB, If you don't the heavy hand of government is crashing down. It's the same reason MPAA and ESRB was made, the government was about to crack down on them but started there own regulation group on there own terms by there own rules.
To really answer your question lead the changes needed yourself before a dumb fuck Democrat does it for you.

I don’t trust them
70% of voters recently said that they would favor a ban on assault rifles. Even higher for Democrats. Its going to happen soon and our country will be better for it.
@tara987 it’s been tried before in Australia and was a great failure. They had a mandatory buyback of firearms and today the ones with them are criminals. Just saw this fact on Fox News about 45 minutes ago. It’s not going to happen here because it’s unconstitutional
I don’t have a problem as long as it’s legal
I forgot who I was dealing with...
Also, murder isn’t usually considered legal
That’s how disarmament of the people start. Next they’ll be after something else. This is what you socialist idiots just don’t get. The first thing they do is disarm the citizens. Next they take control of the press and media. Then they take over religion. Do you trust politicians? Really?
You just confirmed it. You really do want to take our guns
Yes, confirmed! Not every gun, just the ones mentioned. Stop with the slippery slope stuff. It's not going to work anymore.
How is that constitutional?
Because we put limits on Rights all of the time. We put restrictions on free speech, religion, press, etc. all of the time to ensure that the rights of others aren't infringed. There are countless ways that we have informally amended the Constitution.
It’s not going to happen dreamer
