Not only should guns be legal for responsible citizens, I think we should be able to have guns mounted on the top of our vehicles for rush hour traffic. The rockets in the grill are for dump trucks.

Out of my way bitches.

Given your skills in blame transference I assume you're also in favor of banning muslims from pilot school.

"semi-automatic" groups nearly all hunting weapons as well. An "automatic" shotgun, most hunting rifles, my little Nylon .22 squirrel gun.


yea, i know, which is why most proposed restrictions are on mag capacity. however I think we can agree that the free exchange of weapons on what essentially amounts to a black market is probably not the best idea.

Please explain how a person with a history of mental illness being able to purchase ammo and firearms without the bat of an eyelash is a good thing.

Also it's not only the US effected.

One of the major reasons authorities in Mexico are having trouble keeping the drug gangs in check is that the criminals have such easy access to American guns.

it's also part of the reason there is such free access to weaponry on the streets of urban centers as well, the path of guns from southern gunshows to DC and NYC is well documented. This in turn causes overzealous reactionary gun laws in said urban centers and ultimately causes unnecessary restriction on law-abiding citizens.

Don't forget to mention all the hippie drug addicts and crack heads creating demand up here. Here's an idea, stop doing drugs and creating such a great market for the drug lords. Nah, we are too selfish for that.

If someone is well enough not to be institutionalized, and doesn't have a history of violence or self-infliction, why does he need to have his rights limited? Is he less than a citizen if he's never done anything wrong?

Most people have some degree of mental illness. Where do you draw the line for the good of the rest of the lunatics in the world?

Obviously our demand for illegal drugs fuels the trade, but it is become a real problem for enforcement due to the fact the gangs are very, very well armed and can as easily rearm as you can buy a taco.

This is the problem with the gun crowd. You guys will not even admit for a second that easy access to guns is a bad thing. Absolutely zero accountability.

Bottom line, as long as I can get the gun I want without a lot of fuss, I will rationalize anyone else's death.

I'm on the left on this one, guys. There is no reason citizens need to have automatic weapons. And Rodeo is right....gun owners should be licensed similarly to car drivers. More education here could save thousands of lives.
