    I highly dislike gun happy NRA supporters because they act like their personal freedom is being stomped on by Uncle Sam himself....when generally the same people are rabidly anti choice.

    Anyway assault rifles should not be legal for public sale. I don't give a hoot about the big bad criminals having them because chances are you wouldn't have one with you if you were attacked. They are very dangerous and far too many people do not know even basic gun safety. This is for the publics greater good, settle for a shot gun instead.

    We need better gun safety and education. Something as simple as regulating buying ammunition, much like when you buy certain over the counter medication.

    When the President signs a law that makes freedom of speech a felony my personal freedoms are being stepped on. Since you brought anti-choice up I will respond to it as well. I find it extremely hypocritical of anyone that wants to regulate guns in the aftermath of the tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary yet be for abortion. Wouldn't stopping abortion save more innocent lives than any amount of gun control legislation?

    Just to clarify, yes I am pro-life. I have several friends who have had abortions and one of them even aborted my child without my knowledge and everyone of them regrets the decision. I find it reprehensible that my daughter can get birth control or have an abortion without my consent. A teenage girl is in no way mature enough to make that decision on her own.

    If we are going to have a discussion on abortion then I suggest a new thread to keep the two issues from getting confused.

    Couldn't find that one, but ok. The government can set a minium sales price for an item.

    A bullet costs a minium of 500$

    Not legally and there are debates on if it is scientifically.

    Thankfully.

    And no thanks on the offer of a new debate thread. Pointless debate since it has already been laid out.

    I always thought it was "MSRP" Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, not Government Set Retail Price.

    When a woman buys one of those home pregnancy tests and it turns blue, or shows + by any other form of indication it means she is pregnant. If a woman is pregnant she is carrying a baby. Not a mass of cells, but a baby.

    There is that too, but certain commodities (milk is the most prominent example) has a minium price that it can be sold at. If you are caught selling it lower, there is crap to be paid.

    Doing this with bullets, one of the penalties could be reminding the reseller license.

    The reason milk has a minimum price it can be sold at is because of government subsidies that are given to dairy farmers which come from taxes...

    The reason doesn't matter, it has been done. It can be done again, and it is more for the farmers than protecting the tax investment.

    What is about to be shared comes courtesy of an editor of my local newspaper and The Columbus Dispatch. Mind you, this is only a sharing of statistics and will do NOTHING for the EQ - it is meant for the IQ. The statistics are from the FBI Unified Crime Report and an article done by The Dispatch. In 1991 for every 100,000 citizens there were 9.8 murders. In 2012 there were 4.7 murders for every 100,000 citizens - a drop of 55%. Any one wonder WHY this figure is never reported? In 2010 there were 12,996 murders in the United States. 8,775 of these murders were committed with firearms. 6,009 were committed with handguns. Shotguns killed 379. Unstated/undetermined kinds of firearms committed 1,939 deaths. Rifles - assault or otherwise - amounted to 358 murders. 1,704 murders were the result of knives, blunt objects killed 540 citizens, and hands, feet, and fists accounted for 745 murders. In the United States there are 1.5 million assault rifles. Using the number of deaths by rifle - assault or otherwise - 358 - one can see the illegitimacy of going after the assault rifle or the magazines. According to the Sunday Dispatch, the January 20 issue, in Ohio there were 24,764 abortions performed in 2012. Again, in one year, in one state - OHIO - there were double the number of abortions performed as were deaths caused by any and all means throughout the entire 50 states. I am searching for the total number of abortions performed in all 50 states for 2012. So, where are the real killing fields?

    It's exactly how the "big, bad, real world" operates. That's why it doesn't work, will never work, but people like yourself will preach down at others about it. You keep moving the goalposts, from bushmasters to RPGs, yet you ignore the fact that an unskilled person can take the lives of everyone in a movie theater or classroom faster and more efficiently with weapons you deem "acceptable". There's a giant hole in your bucket of logic.

    To address your question -- I expect a person hell bent on irrational acts of violence to use whatever weapon they have at hand. I'll be blunt -- a person possessed with a desire to do harm could kill a hell of a pile of little kids with a machete, or a shovel, or a cheap .22 from Walmart. I don't even want to consider what they could do with $15 worth of items from the camping section and a piece of iron pipe. Unless you want to ban those items, you'll need to figure out how to identify and stop those people. Thinking "that won't happen, and hey -- what about RPG launchers?" is a cop out.
    You refuse to go there in addressing RPG launchers because you know it, conceptually, is at the heart of the argument. Our society has always made choices on what is allowable in a civil society ..... and what is not allowable. Why are you opposed to the nation making a choice based upon today's standards and kill data? If the laughable examples of instruments of death that you cite (hammers, shovels, etc) had reached a level of critical mass in exacting out death, you still equivocate about ending their production. Only a terribly irresponsible nation (and its people) would continue to allow a product to be produced when it is statistically responsible for civilian, innocent deaths. The other major fly in your reasoning is that a product whose only design intent is to produce physical harm to other persons is not equivalent to hammers and shovels. Just ask the FBI. They know better. Why don't you?

    This is why nobody wants to discuss it with you, you're blind to any truth you don't agree with, and resort to an insulting tone. Carry on without me.
    The truth doesn't change dependent upon your presence. Making it personal [see above post for evidence] should be beneath you (and others). Yet, your selective silence where their childishness is concerned is blinding, indeed.

    How are the weapons used in most homicides a laughable example? We have a constitution, that document is the law of the land. The Supreme court has upheld the individuals right to bear arms.


    Carolinadroid I struggle to find one redeeming quality in any of your posts, however under the first amendment you are entitled to free speech which in some cases has now become illegal a felony. Therefore I will defend your right to say it.

    I live in the uk so obviously im against guns as we don't have them here. Id say if you cant ban guns then schools should have airport style checks with metal detectors at the entrance.

    It seems far too common in the states that this is happening. For every one ***** that shoots up a school 10 or 20 innocent people get killed. That's too much for nothing to be done

    Andy since you live in the UK I would say you don't have a dog in this hunt. But since they outlawed dog hunting too you may not understand my point.

    This is a discussion about American gun control legislation, policies and I am not sure how much your opinion matters.

    I am not trying to be rude, it's just the way I see it.

    -----------

    Andy what I find to be criminal is this and pardon me for not knowing all of the details but maybe you can fill them in. There is a guy in London or the surrounding area that had his home broken into several times in a short period. After replacing everything and repairing the damage multiple times he had finally had enough. Apparently somehow he got a weapon and when the thieves came back yet again he shot one. Now this man sits in jail for defending his home against a criminal.... Honestly WTF are you guys putting in that tea..

    As for the rest of this thread I am stepping away before this gets out of hand and I end up getting banned.

    Sure. Why even consider how other nations with histories much longer than the comparative infancy of the US have advanced into more civilized, less lethal societies? That's productive.

    Well, the first thing we need to do is not increase weapons restrictions. It sounds counterintuitive, but what we need to do is educate the populace about the dangers (and uses) of firearms. Take away the mystery from the children, and they'll quickly go on to other things that they're able to be curious about. If a kid has never seen a gun in his life and then his friend goes and gets his dad's shotgun (which brings me to another point, guns need to be properly secured), then that kid will be both curious and uneducated on how to handle it properly. There will be an accident. A deadly one. To keep the criminals away, I personally believe that one cop (like my school system has been doing since Columbine) in there during all hours. Not only would it help deter shooters, it would decrease the rate of crime and the like because there's a cop in the building. Only a true ***** would try something against the rules with a guy who has the legal capability to arrest you a hundred yards away. That cop would be an effective first line of defense. Finally, the teachers need some way to protect themselves and their students. I'm not saying give them all a pistol, but something.

    If we are going to force manufacturer's to stop making products based on public safety we won't have any manufacturer s left. Anything produced by man can and will be abused by man.
    Yet, there are plenty of FBI statistics which clearly demonstrate which weapons are primarily responsible for the loss of innocent, civilian lives. HINT: Those weapons would not be hammers, shovels, shotguns, hunting rifles, etc. Every single manufacturer can continue to exist, according to the law of the land.

    Not less lethal. Just less able to defend themselves from both criminals, and, should it come to it, their government. The thing about the USA is that we were founded on the principle that if a government is tyrannical, the citizens have the right, nay, the duty, to get rid of that government. That's one of the main reasons our founding fathers gave us the right to bear arms. And that's a right I will always remember as I blow a clay pigeon out of the sky with my Remington 870 Express.

    The thing is, many of our rights are already gone, or slowly being taken away. When the American people are scared, they tend to give power to the federal government. When that fear passes, they take it back. But, DC always holds on to a little bit of it. We never are as powerful as we once were as a people.Eventually, the government has enough power and influence to do things like the PATRIOT Act, and, more recently, the indefinite detention clause of the NDAA. It's getting worse, and the citizens just don't seem to care.

    Chicago has a ban denying guns to law abiding citizens how's that working out with their murder statistics?

    I don't care what kind of phone you have, that's not how I judge someone's worth or intelligence.
    I think We are changing our laws because honestly I don't c the so called ban doing nothing but not giving us law following citizens to not defend ourself. I know if more people who follow the law had bangas my citys murder rate will fall
