God inspires people to be good.

Though shall not xxxxxxx has saved many lives. Crime went up since religion was banned in schools. Liberals are selling bad moral standards.

God is totally useless in saving lives. Seatbelts are a lot more effective.

My kind loses out in Socialist societies, I end up in the mass graves. I'll go down fighting when we turn Socialist.
I don't know what you Utopia you think you have planned, but no it wont be warm and fuzzie it will be the violent hell on earth it always is. I'm talking some bitches with me before I go down though.


Which first world countries have you have been visiting exactly?

So you are saying you don't use any of those socialist roads, police, fire, schools, internet, electricity, sewer, water, air travel, courts, military protection, homeland security, food inspections, regulation of toxic waste, etec. etc. then?


don't confuse government services we paid for via our taxes with socialism. in socialism people starve to death, in capitalism people overproduce. i'd rather stay on the overproduction side of the coin.

Dumbassery on so many levels.


This is dumbassery Monday Morning Quarterbacking.

Yes, we can spend a zillion dollars and put armed guards at every entrance and exit 24 hours a day, or we can simply make it impossible for mentally deranged kids to get assault weapons.


Mentally ill can't get guns already in many states. The bigger problem is the ban of Christianity in schools, you ban god, you leave it up to the children to figure out their own morality, and they don't all turn into angels like liberal media movies thinks they do.

I 100% blame all of this on liberals, they've banned moral way of life, and this is consequences.

I don't blame him. The left pretends to be "inclusive", and yet they banish and condemn everyone who speaks disagreement of their views. Now the left has gone overboard trying to tell companies how many men/women/color they should hire or be labeled and fined for discrimination. Left is ridiculous! Left is the main reason this country elected Trump, to counter their bs.

Why do conservatives frame it as "giving up our guns"? We're talking about regulating a very small subset of firearms whose only purpose is to kill as quickly as possible.


How much quicker is AR-15 vs a handgun? Since you are all of a sudden an expert, please do tell how much faster one vs another is?

There's a perfect example of Liberal Logic.

Any Libbies want to touch on that one?


Sure-it's another strawman. Gun control is about closing loopholes that allow "drunk drivers" in your analogy to get them.. It's about restricting the general population's ability from dangerous cars which is already in place. (read--non street legal)

If gun control were similar to automobile regulations, I'd be happy.

Unions are Democrats.

In this case, D and R act in unison to screw the average taxpaying citizen. D: we need to support unions! R: Heroes in Blue can do no wrong! We worship them!

A case in point: Ft. Worth TX is a R town, Houston TX is run by D's, and both have police/firemen pensions that threaten cities with bankruptcy.

Aren't SSRIs already issued with warnings about their impact on youths/teens? I seem to remember it was shown that SSRIs reduce inhibitions to violent behavior.


Why are pharmaceutical drug manufacturers absolved from liability related to their products?

Why do gun manufacturers enjoy the same privileges?

These are the questions you don’t see being asked, because they are at the heart of the issue.


Are car manufacturers liable for what the buyers do with the cars? Think about it, people have to be responsible themselves. If you go to restaurant, buy a taco, than murder someone with it, it's not restaurants fault that the customer is a bad man/woman.

From my experience, media isn't about truth. It's about selling their world views onto the rest of us. Liberals are notorious for that, their view of the truth is SJW's who are anti-tradition, anti-family, anti-white, anti-capitalism, and pro-socialism. Government bureaucrats know that, so they know how to sell that kind of bullshit to the left, and get away with all their crimes and theft.

Stop comparing cars to guns. Cars have useful purposes that are required for commerce and commuting. Guns only have one useful purpose to kill things, and or scare people into running away because you might kill them.

There are no laws that prevent you from buying a gun for defense. We need laws that prevent the sale of guns that can be used in mass slaughter within 2 minutes.
When was the last time 50 criminals came to hunt you down? You do not need an AR-15. It's purpose is to kill, not defend.


There is nothing AR15 does that a handgun doesn't do. One trigger pull = one bullet. It's just more accurate at range if you aim well, at close range and considering crazies are usually bad shots anyway with every weapon since they just "point it"... it's all same.

I could see an issue if he had an uzi or something spraying bullets, but the kid used a handgun I think, right?

The issue is how many times you can pull the trigger and how fast. How many mass shootings are there with bolt action rifles or revolvers where you have to stop after a few shots and put in bullets one at a time? You guys are just full of crap with this it's all the same garbage. The only use for high capacity fast reload mags is to shoot lots of bullets very fast. At people, not deer. Or to make up for some serious sexual inadequacy. Hey sweety come check out my mag.


Mass shootings, usually gun or a rifle. No one uses bolt action since Kennedy assassination. We can't go back in time Bob, this is what world is today. Cops use modern weapons, soldiers use modern weapons, and yes criminals have access to all of them too. Only regular law abiding folks will fall under any new regulation, which makes any new regulation useless.

And the problem with last shooting, wasn't an issue of gun control. It was a failure of our government. People did what they were told "saw something, said something". it's the FBI that failed to act and investigate. Just like with Tsarnaev brothers. All these government crooks know is how to milk the system to spike their pensions, they don't actually stop bad guys. Because the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.

You are gullible if you think any law will stop someone who set their mind on committing a murder.

It would be an efficient way of weeding out the wackos


Until SJW's start complaining that certain groups have to pay higher insurance rates, and therefore it's discrimination. That's how this country works, liberal government caters to whining too much, so whiners whine more.

I literally have no trust in our government, all they do is sit on their asses and game the system to spike their pensions, while doing the minimum till retirement and double pension scam.

Hitler and Stalin would agree w you. The individual is on my there to serve the collective, amirite?


No, not correct. An individual's rights extend only as far as not to intrude on their neighbor's rights. Again--this is basic law. Think yelling Fire in a crowded theather.


That's not the same thing Steve. What your neighbor thinks is his rights often conflicts with your rights. Which is where freedoms come in. Some people think someone else having 2nd amendment rights intrudes on their safety... well guess what, it's my right to own guns.

Criminals are doing mass shootings all around the country? Last time I checked most mass shooters bought perfectly legally. There is no reason whatsoever any civilian needs high capacity quick change clips. I hunted just fine for many years with a bolt action model 70 chambered for 30-06. If you are such a shit shot you need multiple high capacity clips then you shouldn't be hunting at all.


Bob this isn't about hunting. Constitution doesn't specify that guns are for "hunting". We have guns, for whatever we need. I mostly self defense against criminals which government can't protect us from, others for sport or marksmanship, to each their own.

No one ever said that, nice straw man. What could be done is make sending back round information mandatory, updating and modernizing the database, and requiring a back round check for all gun sales. Criminals can only get guns if some where along the line some legitimate gun owner sold a gun to some one who could not pass a back round check. Either through a private sale or straw buyer.


That kid who shot up the school, would still be able to get a gun based on what you just described as new regulation. So what are you solving exactly? And I believe there are already background checks, felons can't buy guns.

This government can't afford anything, they already spent the next 20 years worth of taxes in pension promises to unions. This is how we turn socialist as a nation, where government employees rob taxpayers to have better benefits than those who are paying taxes. North Korea style.

Make LEO requirements meet the same intellect level as college graduate with a BS in anything but liberal arts.
Then pay them accordingly, with a 50k-100k annual kicker added for risking their lives. (desk jockeys don't get this)
Most LEO requirements education wise are high school diploma or GED.
Bottom line: you get what you pay for...

Education Requirement
Most agencies expect officers to have a high school diploma or GED at a minimum. Some agencies require a bachelor’s degree or a minimum number of college credit hours. Others offer additional pay based on educational attainment. Regardless, education beyond high school will only help you in your law enforcement career. Having a four-year degree or an advanced degree is an asset in your career progression, particularly when seeking a promotion or specialized assignment.
