I support some forms of gun restriction.

But banning something like guns, alcohol, drugs etc... never keeps them out of the hands of people that want them. Ban guns and the Cartels in Mexico will get even more powerful and wealthier as they sell guns to americans as well as drugs.

Bill to be introduced


And when someone takes a glock with multiple 10 round mags into the office and goes apeshit what then? This bill is a joke.

Again, let's at least make guns as regulated as cars.

Is that so much to ask?

Here's my problem with this argument. You can't completely ban or destroy something that already exists. Whether it be an object like a weapon, or an idea even. Ban all "weapons of mass destruction" and toss them in the ocean if you want...people can not only make them themselves, but not all of them will be destroyed and people will still have access to them if they really want.

More regulations, laws, background checks yada yada, sure.

However you don't understand the basic differences between different types of rifles.

I have an AR-15 with a 20 inch bull barrel, and a 9X24 powered scope on it, with spring loaded tripod.

I also have a .308 deer hunting rifle with none of that stuff and it looks like a gun from the 1890's.

Which one can I do more damage with?

I say ban the destructive stuff. You want to analyte a deer...that is not a sport.

You said make it more difficult not ban them.

Banning would have made a difference for sure.


In a later post I said ban. I want them banned and there should be very severe penalties for selling them on the black market (30 years). And severe penalties for buying/possessing them. (30 years)

They already are as restricted as cars. If I want to buy my buddies car legall, all I need is cash and a trip to the dmv. If I want to buy his gun, same thing except I go to the sheriff's office instead of the dmv. If I want to buy gas for my car, I go to the gas station, and there are no restrictions. Same with ammunition for a gun.

Perhaps they should be regulated more like prescription drugs, ie a doctor must certify your mental health before you can own a gun. :)

This killer had easy and legal access to these weapons of mass destruction. If he had not, maybe a few more kids or a teacher or two would still be alive. so, if one of these kids or teachers were in your family....what position would you take?

Stealing is legal access? That's good to know

Please explain the harm gun control would cause. Then explain how you would explain to the parents in Conn.
