Nevada is a class III state. Fully automatic weapons are legal. Many out-of-staters keep class III weapons there for war re-enactments and other shooting activities. Yet no law of any kind (how about MURDER???) would have changed the outcome! And physical objects are routinely blamed rather than murderous intent. It is not a rational thought process to engage in a current or future activity with the intent of preventing a past crime. “So that this never happens again” is the mantra - well, if the public’s heads were not in the sand, this one could have been stopped many times over before it happened.
Freedom is clearly too dangerous for some Americans. Wait til the entire story comes out. Numerous - perhaps hundreds of people - had to ignore vital warning signs as this guy planned this for an extended period of time. We have terrorist warning signals to watch for at airports. It used to be common sense but we are living in a senseless culture.
In the Las Vegas shooting, many men shielded women and children with their bodies. The men died but the bullets did NOT go THROUGH their bodies and into the bodies of the people they were shielding. A “normal” bullet would penetrate both.
Depends on what you mean. The founders would have expected any rebellion
to against the federal govt to take place as theirs did… with a
democratic agreement to rebel. The colonial govts agreed to rebel, just
like the Confederate States voted to rebel.
It wasn’t anarchy, it was democracy.
BLM & similar groups are currently operating in a way that could
potentially lead one of two ways: (1) Lead to liberal states like CA
voting to leave the nation (which would be unfortunate, but consistent with
that freedom), or (2) lead to street violence which is inconsistent with
The problem with BLM and similar groups is that they have communist and
socialist ideas, not democratic ideas
we have background checks now. how would you enforce background checks on private sales? this only stops law abiding citizens. crooks don’t follow the law. this just makes it harder for poor people to obtain guns.
what proof do we have that waiting periods work? many states have some form of a waiting period for various types of guns. have they reduced crime?
how many people do you think stockpile weapons? how would you know without a registry? this is what the left really wants.
gun violence can be studied, see earlier post.
agreed but all money not just nra. but how do we fund campaigns or again is it a game only for the rich
all your gun control desires do is control the poor. these suggestion would not have stopped this guy or any well off individual.
they are already controlled to the point the average joe can’t afford them
this means private sales, how do you regulate it without a registry? the seller just has to list it as stolen so even a registry has flaws. it is a burden just for the poor and not the rich. gun control is racist.
internet sales go through ffl’s so they are background checked. private sales won’t stop because of a law. you have places on the web that you can get anything.
many states have waiting periods, do they work? it won’t stop people like the las vegas killer he will just wait.
• We must limit the number of firearms any individual can own!
how do you enforce this? does the number of guns mean you intend to kill someone? i know a guy that bought 600 war surplus rifles as an investment. we all thought it was a waste of money but he made a very good profit on them.
because i can’t just keep changing 5 round clips. most ar’s use magazines not clips. the politicians don’t even know the difference but want to control it. where is their due diligence?
it’s not legal to manufacture or import armor piercing ammunition. what exactly is an armor piercing bullet. the atf defined it as handgun ammo.
it is usually locally or individually controlled but these gun free zones are a magnet for the nuts wanting a shooting gallery environ. will it stop anyone who has a purpose? why do you think a sign will keep people safe?
so you want a registry to eventually take the guns away. you may not advocate this but many on the left do.
