Forum Post: So,what were you Libs saying..."nobody's going to take your guns"???

Posted 1 year ago on Jan. 9, 2013, 4:04 p.m. EST by outlawtumor (-162)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

BIDEN, kicking off White House meetings on gun violence, says 'executive action' — meaning President Obama bypasses Congress — is on the table as a means of toughening gun-control laws.

Biden: "Obama Might Use Executive Order to Deal With Guns"

"The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet."

"Remember when the left pretended they liked the Second Amendment? That’s passé. Today, Democrats around the country are preparing for a big gun grab, the likes of which the Republic has never before seen. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has actually publicly pitched all-out gun confiscation (or alternatively, forced gun buybacks), is now preparing grandiose new legislation designed to strip New Yorkers of “assault weapons,” as well as restrict the size of magazines."

"In an interview with the Daily Times Herald in Caroll, Iowa, state Rep. Dan Muhlbauer said governments should start confiscating semi-automatic rifles and other firearms.

Muhlbauer, a Democrat from the western Iowa town of Manilla."

Richard Blumenthal

"Ammo sales need same instant background checks as guns. I’m introducing the Ammunition Background Check Act"

And you low information,ignorant,arrogant Libs said it would never happen.

What makes you half wit cons think any of that adds up to a gun grab?

Oh right. I answered my own question. Didn't I, Half Wit?

[+] -4 points by nomdeguerre (1775) from Brooklyn, NY 1 year ago

You are certainly entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Muhlbauer, above in the op, and others have openly talked of confiscating semi-autos.

You should also be aware that there are many progressives/liberals who support the 2nd Amendment.

[-] 1 points by bigjoe (-117) 1 year ago

Here’s a paragraph from a column written by a Pastor who writes a news blog. Maybe it’ll give you an idea of the resolve gun owners have about their gun rights.

“Throughout the United States, there are tens of millions of fully-armed citizens who are more than capable of defending themselves and their communities against any enemy--whether that enemy is an internal or external one. In fact, many millions of these citizens have been trained in the US armed forces. Firearms--especially semi-automatic rifles--in the hands of millions of American citizens is truly the only thing that stands between freedom and tyranny for the people of the United States. That Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein want to disarm the American people should be considered an act of war against our liberties! In other words, ladies and gentlemen, this is a line in the sand that none of us can afford to ignore.”

[-] 0 points by nomdeguerre (1775) from Brooklyn, NY 1 year ago

It's sad but the gunhate nuts will take this as a threat, rather than as an expression of deeply held feelings and beliefs.

Liberals somehow can't understand feeling they don't share. I used to be a classic 60s liberal (I'm still an FDR liberal), we just couldn't say "Personally I don't understand your position but I respect how important it is to you" -- rather we'd assume there was some problem in the other's thinking.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Huh?

Don't you think it's time for that to actually and for once go the other way?

It's time for the, and here's the truth of who they are, gun fetishists, to finally understand that the rest of us are sick and tired of gun carnage in all it's putrid forms.

They have yet to give a single inch that they have not clawed and scratched to get back. Often at great expense to life and limb among the innocent, the non gun fetishists. Oh, and a high level of tax payer expense too.

I have listened to their threats of violence for decades now. Before I ever heard of the NRA.

Here's the bottom line.

Since the fetishists won't offer any kind of significant compromise. A significant inch, if you will, something will still be done and I doubt that you will like it. But you have been offered many chances to help find a solution.

YOU have failed to do so.

You have given us threats.

YOU have given us Alex Jones.

YOU have given us that wild eyed guy in Tennessee, that just plain threatened to start shooting.

YOU have given us other even more militant militias, that threaten to do the same.

All based on lies.

NO!

It's you who needs to understand OUR position.

We're sick of it.

If you won't help fix it, you really are part of the problem.

If you won't fix it?

Somebody else will.

And even if I personally, don't care for their solution, I will still thank them for trying.

I can be no more candid with you.

Here's another bottom line about how OWS has shown your BS about protecting us from tyranny is also far off point.

Off-shoring sweatshops

Pollution/poisoning destruction of people and environment

End the war on terror OR is that war for control of foreign fossil fuel and other mineral resources.

Remove CorpoRAT personhood - source of the stealing of our government to wealthy interests ( see also foreign wars )

Economic meltdown and responsible criminals ( see also foreign wars - fossil fuel - Greed - White collar crime )

I’m sorry DK. I don’t believe you. I do believe the intent is to eventually take all our guns. Some folks have even stated that as the goal. If I thought I could believe you I probably wouldn’t be so hard line. But the truth is a lot of gun grabbers really do want all guns removed.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

What happened the last time the assault weapon ban was placed?

NOTHING

Stop feeding stupid fears - keep your gun ownership to yourself if you are truly frightened - I mean why advertise to those who monitor this site for the government that you are packing and afraid?

The possible assault gun ban is stupid.

[-] 0 points by bigjoe (-117) 1 year ago

I don’t think I’m paranoid. I view myself as rational and critical thinking. I don’t believe the government is going to use Gestapo tactics to come in and forcefully disarm gun owners. I generally trust the government is trying to do what is best for the citizens. Probably much more than a lot of people on this forum. Wow, In my short time on this forum I’ve seen some of the most outrageous conspiracy theories I’ve ever seen. I’m a bit flabbergasted at some of the posts. Talk about paranoia. But I digress.

I believe you personally when you say you don’t want all our guns. But you can’t speak for the anti-gunners any better than I can speak for gun owners. Also, I don’t own any semi-auto rifles. Just not interested in them. I only have one gun that would be affected by any of the proposed legislation; and that is a high cap pistol.

The bottom line is none of the proposed gun legislation will have any impact on gun violence. That’s the crux of my argument. Banning certain guns and\or gun features solves nothing. I don’t know why that isn’t clear to everyone.

You want to require better gun training? I’ll go along with that. You want background checks on all gun purchases? I’ll go along with that. Better still, why don’t we make a concerted effort to go after the gangs and illegal guns.

Exactly = List of countries by intentional homicide rate - Wikipedia, the free ... en.wikipedia.org/... This site chosen as it has nothing to do with how someone was killed - just that they were killed.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY THESE GUN POSTS ARE A NON-ISSUE and a Plain Distraction

It is addressing the ills of society that will reduce the number of murders and crime in general.

[-] 0 points by bigjoe (-117) 1 year ago

We are in agreement the focus should be on reducing murders and crime in general. I’ve heard a couple of time lately that crime is like at a thirty year low. Don’t remember where I heard it and don’t remember what the break out was on violent vs. non-violent crime. I think the MSM tends to sensationalize crime these days; and it appears crime is worse.

IMHO, you want to reduce crime, then reduce poverty.

I’m done here. Thanks.

Another anti-gun ploy is to frame gun owners as a lunatic fringe. Not true. Personally, I think Alex Jones is start raving mad and should be in a straight jacket. Also, Fox News is dangerous. The truth gun owners are not the toothless hillbillies you want us to be.

For the most part we are law abiding and honest (otherwise wouldn’t be able to legally own guns). As a group gun owners are among the most law abiding and productive members of society. We are your neighbors, co-workers and family members. So, you can call us names, berate us or whatever. We’re still not give you our guns.

I won’t belabor the point, but you need to put your energy into ways to really control violence and crime. How about starting by cleaning up the gang infested areas.

I agree. The gun grabbers just want to take our guns. Period, end of story. Some gun grabbers admit they want all guns; others say we just want reasonable restrictions. But, I just don’t trust any gun grabber or believe anything a gun grabber says. They have made their agenda clear.

Even though I’ve never been arrested in my life, been a hard working honest family man all my life. I will not register or give up my guns. If guns are outlawed I will be an outlaw.

It's time the left and right supporters of the 2nd Amendment form a cohesive strategy.

I suggest a full frontal assault on the truth of the high profile attacks, exposing them as bogus. The Newtown and Aurora shooting official narratives in particular fall apart under the lightest examination. Further questionable shootings: Columbine, Ft. Hood, & Virginia Tech. Also a full attack on the MSM as lying propagandists and social engineers.

Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia addresses the Chicago-Kent College Law justice Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011, in Chicago.

Justice Antonin Scalia, one of the Supreme Court's most vocal and conservative justices, said on Sunday that the Second Amendment leaves room for U.S. legislatures to regulate guns, including menacing hand-held weapons.

"It will have to be decided in future cases," Scalia said on Fox News Sunday. But there were legal precedents from the days of the Founding Fathers that banned frightening weapons which a constitutional originalist like himself must recognize. There were also "locational limitations" on where weapons could be carried, the justice noted.

(RELATED: 3 Steps Obama Can Take on Gun Control)

When asked if that kind of precedent would apply to assault weapons, or 100-round ammunition magazines like those used in the recent Colorado movie theater massacre, Scalia declined to speculate. "We'll see," he said. '"It will have to be decided."


Note the 1994 gun "ban" did n ot ban guns - it banned the manufacture of NEW assault weapons


George H Bush signed an executive order in 1989 banning the importation of semiautomatic rifles that had certain characteristics. That ban was the precursor to the AWB from the Clinton era. The Bushes were almost as "bad" for gun owners as the Clintons.

Scapegoat Hunter - Gun Control

Tuesday January 8, 2013 | The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Gun rights activists' paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents America from addressing its actual dystopic present.

The name calling and hysterics are trivial and irrelevant, we've been called "Pinko Commies" by toothless hillbillies since the sixties. Being called "Gun Nuts" will never hurt you. The urgent problem here is the tragedy and horror of everyday attrition and bi-monthly all out massacres by a device that does need to be around anymore, guns. I used to ride dirt bikes in the desert, but I had to quit because dumb asses were ripping everything up and generally wrecking havoc. I didn't do it, but I contributed to the numbers, noise and dust. The desert and the people who came to enjoy it were much more important than my riding pleasure. Peoples' lives are much MUCH more important than gun ownership. This was true a long time ago, that's why countries like UK banned them a long time ago. Now it's our turn. No more shootings. See if Jon clarifies this with humor.

No its wrong to allow a goverment the ability to make determinations of what a free person is allowed to do.It also does not seem to prevent any of the behavior to stop.The ideology of all we need are more laws just does not seem to be working out very well. Perhaps if people spent more time teaching all children what these substances can do we would have better results.Tobacco/alcohol/drugs/guns what ever laws just do not work. And the mindset that any social problem can be resolved with a law seems very ineffective in not all but most cases. Most people that smoke etc started when they were adolecents. People would rather pass a law trying to deny a behavior instead of getting to the problem of why would you want to make that choice.It is like the goverment is doing the work of a parent.

Who is hurt by restricting the number of rounds that can be fired before you need to stop and reload? Who is hurt by making it a little slower to fire off the rounds in your pistol or rifle? You are not being disarmed. So why is it a bad thing to remove high capacity fast firing weapons from civilian hands? It has already been determined that these type weapons are not needed for self protection or for hunting. One shot kills just as dead as 10 20 100.

Alcohol,tobacco,drugs and drivers license's are not Constitutional rights. I'm sure you can agree with that.

Guns and ammo are already well regulated and any further regulation just infringes on our Constitutional rights.

This whole issue could be rectified for the most part by protecting our children with armed,qualified people in their schools.

We use armed protection for politicians,Hollywood stars,money,jewels,court houses,banks...etc.

Are our children not worth the same protection?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28477) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Alcohol and tobacco are individual choice freedom issues and drugs ( prescription ) is a freedom of health issue - drugs "recreational" should be a freedom of choice issue, driving while presented as a privilege is also a freedom of choice issue, so you have the right to bear arms - the right does not specify what types of arms and so are able to regulate what is allowable and what is not. No RPG for you. Same can be said for a semi-auto pistol or rifle - limit can be placed on the number of rounds that can be loaded at one time and the semi-auto can be limited as to it's capability - example a pump action shot-gun is semi-auto a revolver is semi-auto - a bolt action or lever action rifle is semi-auto - the limit is to the extent of the allowed function - like limiting the weapon from reloading itself to the point that the operator just needs to keep pulling the trigger.

[-] 1 points by outlawtumor (-162) 1 year ago

Not to be redundant but:

Guns and ammo are already well regulated and any further regulation just infringes on our Constitutional rights.

The SCOTUS has already weighed in and the debate has been over for years.

Any new laws,any Executive Orders from here on out is just incrementally removing Constitutional rights from law abiding Americans.

No I am not for taking away Constitutional rights - but I have no problem with sane regulations. Preventing the ownership of a clip/magazine that can contain more then say 3 rounds is not unreasonable. Limiting the function of a semi-automatic weapon to having a round ready but needing to be physically positioned by cocking/levering/pumping is not unreasonable either.

Just out of curiosity - when are you gun hugging 'patriots' going to use your guns for the purpose of protecting us from potential tyranny? What's it gonna take exactly? Suspension of habeus corpus? Allowing indefinite detentions of US citizens? Plutocratic rule by corporations run amok? How come you don't get on with it already? What exactly are you waiting for? An engraved invitation? What's it gonna take? I mean hells bells, isn't any of this at least as bad as the East India tea tax subsidy that sparked the last armed revolt? Indefinite detention ok, tea tax subsidy not ok?

I'm not the one that insists guns are necessary. You are. I believe in the principles of the Constitution. You're the one that thinks the Consititution is such a piece of shit that you need a gun to protect yourself!

There is serious doubt that the Founders ever contemplated the use of the force against the government they had established at the very time they were actually establishing it! That's how come gun regulation is Consititutional! Try DC v Heller and US v Miller.

If they thought that the Constitution was such a piece of shit like you do, that it would take force to prevent tyranny, then they would have simply changed the Constitution as they were writing it if they thought it was so shitty! Are you completely dense?! Why would they write something so shitty that would take armed force to protect ourselves?! It defies logic. You have got to be a complete idiot.

Just admit you're completely full of crap or at the very best - y'all are nothing more than a pathetic bunch of wuss bags with weapons waiting for an engraved invitation. Even if you got an engraved invitation I think you'd still be a pathetic bunch of wussy bags.

The Secret History of Guns

The Ku Klux Klan, Ronald Reagan, and, for most of its history, the NRA all worked to control guns. The Founding Fathers? They required gun ownership—and regulated it. And no group has more fiercely advocated the right to bear loaded weapons in public than the Black Panthers—the true pioneers of the modern pro-gun movement. In the battle over gun rights in America, both sides have distorted history and the law, and there’s no resolution in sight.

A Modest Proposal … Take Two

Friday, 04 January 2013 | Bob Alexander | http://tvnewslies.org

Note: The first time I heard about "A Short History of Conservative Obstruction to Progress" was on Mike Malloy's radio program in 2008. I was so impressed with it I put it up in the "rants" section on Superbeans (http://superbeans.com/rant_02_01_08.htm) as a readily accessible reminder that The Elite, and the Crazy Stupid People that follow them, have unrelentingly opposed everything and anything that would benefit We The People. [Like reforming health care, ending the bogus Bush wars, and controlling guns so Americans don't get SHOT!!]

The key word here is unrelentingly. Conservatives are like the movie monsters from the Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th movies. You can’t stop them. You can stab them in the neck, set them on fire, or whack them in the head with a machete, but after a few seconds of getting their movie-monster-mojo together … they rise up again and again and again … and their murderous rampage continues until the closing credits. Unlike their victims, the movie monsters don’t need to stop to sleep, eat, or even catch their breath. But when their hapless quarry takes a breather … Watch Out … that’s when The Monsters Get You. [Zombies]

The Elite and their Crazed Conservative Shills in Congress are even more powerful than their silver screen counterparts. They can lose elections and still have the power to destroy. How could these people deny relief to hurricane Sandy victims? Because they’re monsters. Why are they still trying to destroy our social safety nets? George Carlin explained it all perfectly:

“They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else. … And now they’re coming for your social security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it.”

They’ll get it because they’ve spent decades and untold billions to create and condition enough dumb-asses that don’t know what the hell is going on but believe, and deeply care about, gibberish.

Here are some Ugly American Facts. 61% of Americans don’t believe in evolution. 47% believe the universe is less than 10,000 years old. One child in four grows up not knowing how to read, 21 million Americans can't read at all, and the average American doesn’t read one book in a year. This means if you go outside … you’ve got more than a fifty-fifty chance of meeting a crazy stupid person. Hell … there’s a huge chance you’re related to crazy stupid people. I know I am.

My little circle of acquaintances and family members is positively teeming with crazy stupid people. Maybe you’re in the same boat. So how are we supposed to deal with people who fervently support war crimes, deny science, disregard facts, fear anyone with a skin color darker than their own, are completely unhinged by the concept of same-sex marriage, and believe it is more important to regulate vaginas instead of guns?

I’ve spent years struggling with that question and I’ve spent years doing what all good little liberals do … countering nonsense with facts. You know how that’s worked out? So far I have a 100% failure rate. Not one crazy stupid person budged one millimeter from their position. The Iraq War was A Good Thing. There is no such thing as Global Climate Change. There is no such thing as Peak Oil. Brown People are Scary. Gay people are Scary. Women are Scary. Gun violence is caused by everything but guns.

So I quit talking to these people because I finally realized a very simple fact. You cannot use a rational argument with anyone who is irrational. So put down The Big Book of Facts and walk away. Just walk away.

I read an article by Alan Greenblatt on the NPR website the other day: When It Comes To Politics, States Are Barely United.

The “Red” states are getting redder and the “Blue” states are getting bluer. I don’t think that would be a surprise to anyone who has sat across the Thanksgiving table while the fat-assed brother-in-law holds forth on the dangers of gay marriage. There’s nothing you can say to him that’ll change his mind. If you counter any of his dumb-ass arguments he’ll simply double down on his dumb-assery and keep talking until he runs out of steam. You can’t have a “two-way street” discussion with this guy. It’s not allowed. So now we get to the Modest Proposal part.

It’s not enough to passively avoid these dumb-asses. I’m not talking about “drawing a line in the sand.” It’s already there. They drew the damn thing in the first place. It’s time to actively shun these people. If this yahoo believes in denying anyone their rights you tell him he’s a goddamned fool. If it’s your house … tell him to get the hell out. If it’s his house … gather up your coats and hats and family and get the hell out. We’ve got to stop tolerating these dumb-asses. Piers Morgan dispensed with Gun Nut Larry Pratt by simply telling him, “You're An Unbelievably Stupid Man, Aren't You?”

We need more of this type of response to dumb-assery. We have got to put these dumb-asses on notice that we’re not going to tolerate their insanity any longer. We’re done with these yahoos. Crazy Stupid People should not be invited to the conversation because of a misguided desire to appear to be fair and balanced. The most ridiculous position I can imagine is to ask the people who caused the problem to help with the solution.

We’ve got to shun the dumb-asses because they have no interest in solving the problem. Their agenda is to make it worse.

Now I realize that my Modest Proposal is in no way helping to bridge the political divide that exists in the United States. Some might say it exacerbates the problem.

Really?

The fat-assed bother-in-law vehemently against same sex marriage is the problem. Ignoring him is the problem. Tolerating his ignorance and inhumanity is the problem. Telling him to shut up might be the beginning of the solution.

See here’s the deal … This isn’t about politics anymore … it’s about survival. We can’t have a bunch of bible-thumping morons influence the decisions about what to do about Global Climate Change. We can’t have these dupes of the corporatocracy interfere anymore. We’ve got to tell them to shut the hell up and go sit in the corner until the adults figure out what to do.

So shun ‘em and see what happens. Will the Blue States get Blue-ier and the Red States get crazier?

Yeah.

But that’s already happening.

Will it get better if we negotiate with Crazy Stupid People?

No. We’ll just lose more ground as the oceans rise.

Is there a solution to The Political Divide?

Probably not … but at least we’ll have the satisfaction of giving the crazy bastards the finger before we all sail off the cliff.

[This is what happens when you let an obsolete practice to continue past it's need and time, like slavery and denying women the Vote. Should have banned guns after WW-1. Better late than never. Bye bye Wild West, Hello 21st Century!! American Lives TRUMP guns!!]

Your post brings up something I’ve believed for a long time We are a seriously divided people in the US. The population is split about 50/50 liberal and conservative; and they hate each other. I mean a hate so venomous that no reasonable discussion is possible. Even the mention of talking to the other side would cause someone to be maligned and ostracized. The hate is also very apparent on this forum; as with most other forums.

So, my question is will we ever get past the point of all this hate. Seems to me to get worse every day. Since gun restrictions is the topic of this thread, let’s use it as an example.

From my viewpoint, as a gun owner, I see gun owners calling people in favor of gun control “gun grabbers” and other inflammatory names. I subscribe to a couple of local gun forums. The talk is rabid, Downright defiant. They say gun grabbers want to take their freedom. They say we are law abiding people, we do we have to give up any of our guns.

On the other hand, the people who want more gun restrictions say gun owners are evil, pro-violence, hillbilly trailer trash who should have their guns taken away.

However, the truth is most people who want more gun restrictions are just concerned about gun crime. And the 300 million gun owners are just you neighbors, co-workers and family members, not the low life’s you want them to be.

I don’t know the solution to our nations divide. I’m not sure we will ever again be able to talk to each other again. The divide is just too great, the voices too shrill and the hate too much.

Scapegoat Hunter - Gun Control

Tuesday January 8, 2013 | The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Gun rights activists' paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents America from addressing its actual dystopic present.

The name calling and hysterics are trivial and irrelevant, we've been called "Pinko Commies" by toothless hillbillies since the sixties. Being called "Gun Nuts" will never hurt you. The urgent problem here is the tragedy and horror of everyday attrition and bi-monthly all out massacres by a device that does need to be around anymore, guns. I used to ride dirt bikes in the desert, but I had to quit because dumb asses were ripping everything up and generally wrecking havoc. I didn't do it, but I contributed to the numbers, noise and dust. The desert and the people who came to enjoy it were much more important than my riding pleasure. Peoples' lives are more important than gun ownership. This was true a long time ago, that's why countries like UK banned them a long time ago. Now it's our turn. No more shootings. See if Jon clarifies this.

http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-january-8-2013/scapegoat-hunter---gun-control

[-] 0 points by bigjoe (-117) 1 year ago

I didn’t intend for this to be another gun debate. It’s almost pointless, nothing gets resolved and no one’s views are changed. I’ve become weary of trying to change people’s mind.

I’m also a former dirt bike rider. Rode around Barstow, CA mostly. But that was a lifetime ago. And I agree with you desert racing or off-road riding is destructive. I quit because I didn’t have time or money to do it anymore. Anyway, I digress.

I think I understand you beliefs, but disagree with linking legal gun ownership to gun crime. There is virtually no correlation. For me and tens of millions of other gun owners who have never hurt anyone with a weapon; and we want to keep our guns. We haven’t hurt anyone.

The reality is there probably will some level of new gun restriction. No one knows for sure how bad it will be, but my guess it will be banning new sales of semi-auto rifles, ban hi cap mags on all guns and require background checks on all gun purchases. All currently owned guns will be grandfathered in as being legal.

The problem is none of the new regulations won’t affect gun crime one bit. It’ll just hurt honest, law abiding gun owners.

[-] 0 points by WSmith (2091) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Well try and watch the clip, sometimes humor transcends stubborn intransigent beliefs.

It's about lives, lives that guns are too easily taking away, irreversibly. That's why other countries like UK, that weren't cursed with John Wayne, banned them decades ago!!

We rode all over that desert but mainly Bean Canyon and Red Rock Canyon. We'd ride from the desert floor to the snowy mountain peaks on fire roads, trails and tiny goat paths. We picked up our stuff, cleaned up what we found, stayed on trails, and never pit-raced. But some were pigs, tore up virgin fauna, brought trash to dump, and ruined it for all of us. Isn't that the way things always go?? A few ruin things for the many? Dirt Biking Ruined by the few Pigs! Open Gun Ownership Ruined by a few Murders! Do you really want to selfishly cling to a practice that kills just one child?? How about that one multiplied by thousands per year?? There are other things that need to be changed, too. But no one gets shot in a school without a gun! Piecemeal restrictions are like a dike with only a small hole. Eventually you return to the way you were, flooded and shot. It only works if it's comprehensive, no holes! UK! If it saves just one life it will be a very good thing.

On bikes, I preferred racing. Mostly on an established loop. Sigh, but that was back when Triumph’s and BSA’s were top dog. Giving away my age I guess.

I think you’re sincere thinking taking away guns will solve the problems. However, I must disagree. I doubt Americans will ever hand in their guns like the Brits and Aussies. The gun culture is too embedded in the US. Just look at the big fuss about banning AR-15’s right now. Americans would draw the line at taking away guns they use for self defense.

[-] -1 points by bigjoe (-117) 1 year ago

Respectfully, it will never happen. Not in the foreseeable future anyway. Even in the current activity any new restrictions will be minimal. I’m sorry, but Americans will not give up their guns.

Let me give you an example. I’m a member of a couple of local gun forums. The talk is already defiant. Lot of people saying they won’t register any weapons. That sentiment is all over the interment. A lot of people are saying they will not abide by any new regulations. They’re almost daring the government to come after their guns.

There is no way to know how much of this talk is bluster. But I think millions of gun owners will, at the very least, refuse to register their weapons. Now if all this talk is happing on just banning new semi-auto rifle sales, how bad would it be if the government actually wanted ALL the guns. Personally I think any effort to confiscate ALL weapons would be met with armed resistance.

My point is, thinking all/most guns can removed from the US is not considering all the factors.

[-] 0 points by WSmith (2091) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Yes, I'm sure everybody on the right is used to saying (no they don't learn), "Respectfully, it will never happen. Not in the foreseeable future anyway. Even in the current activity," for: Obama will never be reelected, Obamacare will never be upheld, we'll never end Iraq, we'll never get Osama, we'll never have Obamacare, Obama (a black) will never be elected, the wise businessmen Bush and Cheney will never crash the world economy, lie us into two bogus wars, let 9-11 happen, on and on and "it will never happen" on....

And we ALL know about the belligerence of gun owners, "We have the right to own guns, and we don't care that our right gets thousands of Americans killed every year, WE DON'T FUCKING CARE!!!

We also know, and so do you, that SHIT ain't flying no more!!!

[-] 0 points by bigjoe (-117) 1 year ago

OK, I concede it’s best to never say never. Anything is possible. Probably more accurate to say “highly unlikely” the American government will ever try to confiscate or outright ban most firearms. As I said previously, the resistance would be insurmountable; and maybe bloody.

You can attempt to ignore between 80-100 million gun owners. You can call us names and berate us. But in reality gun owners, as a group, are among the most honest, hard working, middle class citizens. We are your neighbors, co-workers and family members. Sorry, but we’re not the toothless hillbillies you want us to be.

For instance, I’ve never been arrested, vote, pay my bills and taxes, went to work every day until I retired. Raised three daughters and love to play with my grandkids. I think Alex Jones is loony tunes, I think Fox News is stupid and I think our government is tyrannical. I’m nothing special, just one of the 80 million or so honest gun owners. To think we’re some type of foaming-at-the-mouth red neck who wants own a Howitzer is way off base.

Bottom line, we will give up our rights, or ability to defend ourselves, just because someone doesn’t like guns.

[-] 1 points by WSmith (2091) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

I don't understand the disconnect here. You do realize that we are having this discussion because of the "bloody" gun violence and deaths that we are experiencing NOW. Thousands every year.

I will give you that responsible gun owners are good people and not the problem, for the most part. No one is ignoring them. How many of the Sandy Hook 26 were and would have been good people, maybe even responsible gun owners? Have you forgotten them and the thousands of others every year? They didn't lose a hobby, they lost their lives, shot!

I hope you can discern the difference and importance between a right to a hobby and a right to life.

OK, allow me to lay it out for you. This is just my opinion, but one I think is widely accepted among gun owners.

  1. The focus should be on keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals; and preferably take guns away from the criminal element. No gun owner I know of (and I know quite a few) would object to tighter background checks, stiff penalties for straw buyers and some way to identify mentally unstable gun buyers.

  2. Banning semi-anti rifles is feel good legislation. It won’t accomplish anything. Only approximately 3% of gun crimes are committed with rifles of any type. Most gun crimes are done with handguns.

  3. Restricting gun magazine to ten rounds or less pointless. You can change out a mag in the blink of an eye.

  4. I believe in gun training. Personally I’d like to see at least forty hours of how to properly and safely handle a weapon. There is current training available, but it’s mostly on how to shoot better. I doubt many gun owners would complain about more training.

  5. I don’t see what gun registration accomplishes, other than maybe make it easier to identify a stolen gun. This is another feel good idea that doesn't fix anything. Besides, probably half the gun owners would ignore it.

So, I submit that making things more difficult for law abiding gun owners solves nothing. Put your effort into getting the guns from criminals and improved training.

On the topic of liberals and conservatives which you originally mentioned. America is so split I doubt the nation will survive another 100 years. Hate rules everything these days, no matter which side you’re on. I used to think Americans would never again go to war with each other. But hate is the rule of the day, and it just worse. I’m not sure it can be solved peacefully.

I'm done here. I have to go over to Stormfront for a discussion. I'm sure some people here will actually believe that.

There's nothing NOTHING in your old list that addresses the current problem. I see that you are continuing to ignore the blood and death that we are currently enduring. You seem to be sinking ever deeper into brainless dogma. Such a pity.

Of course you know in all fights in history, LIBERALS, when fully engaged, always win! We're smarter!

I knew they would try. I did not and do not support it. A part of me thinks, with the record sales of semi-automatic rifles, that any measure will fill on its face.

FrankenFeinstein just delivered on a big part of Djobama's Unchained 2nd term. If this keeps up we'll be just like England by 2016.
