If we responsible firearms owners don't behave like criminals, then is there any good reason to treat us like criminals?
Is there some logical reason why 30 round magazines and machine guns were legal to own with few restrictions for decades and then not?
I'm pretty sure the world was no more or less violent then than now, but for some reason today's children seem to think that violence will solve all of life's problems, right before they end theirs. I'm still trying to grasp the logic of all that, but it seems to make sense to them.
Is there anyone here or anywhere else who can make a logically valid argument about how banning magazines over 10 rounds, specifically named weapons, or certain cosmetic features of weapons will make us all safer?
Mexico has what amounts to a ban on civilian firearms possession and I doubt anyone would make the argument about how safe a place Mexico is.
We need to ban cars, alcohol, and tobacco while we're at it. Combined, they certainly kill more people than guns every single year. If you die or are killed by something, are you "more dead" if you die one way versus another?
How many abortions are performed each year? Killing a child while the child is utterly helpless and entirely dependent upon its mother is A-OK in the liberal mindset, but once that child is born the child is magically the most important thing in the world. Where's the logic in that? I support the right to kill my own children, but don't you dare kill my children and don't you dare kill the pedophile who raped and murdered 12 kids. It takes a special type of mentally unbalanced person to think that way.
Having our children living in a total immersion environment (television, movies, and video games) that constantly glorifies violence is ok, but mythical sky wizard forbid you should show a woman's tits on TV.
Seriously, where do people come up with this crap?
That really was a great response, I think I know the anser to your question, I know where they come up with most of it-
1)- It starts when we dont introduce our children to firearms early enough to respect them instead of fear and loath them
2)- Then Schools and "Educational Television Content" introduce and reinforce stigmatization that cloud realities and puts the black hat on anyone with a gun that doesnt have a Badge.
3)- Video games, Music, Movies and other Media fail again to properly illuminate who's wearing the White Hat and who is the Bad guy, its their 1A right!!!!.
4)- Folks who have been taught their whole lives that 911 is the answer to anything troublesome look only to the Government to protect them from Evil once they realize lifes more than a movie script and they cant just press reset the game every time things suck.
5)- Government has removed all their possible "bad" choices "For Our Own Good" and promised 100% coverage if we completely submit to them that which was paid for with the blood of millions of freedom loving patriots from all the generations before us.
Yes its ludicrous to think that if they haven't attained Nirvana for us at this point; more laws, taxes and government controls will do anything but make things worse...
