Banning guns will never be accomplished in this country without another civil war. So unless all of you people that are for banning guns wish to fight a war (with guns
), then forget it.
You can try and regulate them all you want. The historical fact is simple: whatever you ban (mags, bullets, action types, full-auto, semi-auto, etc) is just going to inhibit the law abiding citizen (the good guy) from possessing. NOT the bad guy. Use common sense when thinking about this concept. For instance: I was rear ended by a guy tweaking his brain out on something in July. My whole family was in the car. It wasn't bad, he just rolled into me at an intersection, got out of his car, and start frantically running around screaming that the rapture was coming. I took my pistol out of my center console and put it in my conceal holster. Cops come. I inform them with my CCL. The cop disarms me. Why??? The good guys aren't out to get anybody, only out to protect themselves/family/public. The only answer I got was "This is for everybody's safety, sir" But never got any plausible answers to my legitimate questions.
Gun owners are slowly being made to look like crazy 1940's batshit crazy racist white skinheads. But it couldn't be further from the truth. Gun control has failed worse than the war on drugs has. The very definition of a criminal is somebody that breaks laws. What is gun control legislation? LAWS. Why is that so hard to comprehend? Mr/Mrs police officer: If a gun carrier wanted to have a shootout with you, he/she isn't going to f'ing tell you "i'm carrying". Teachers/employees: If a mentally disturbed person wants to come shoot up your school/place of business, they aren't going to phone ahead, and they certainly aren't going to stop at the door with the big NO GUNS sign on it ?!??!??
"Oh but why don't we take guns off the street so they can't have the gun in the first place?" Because that is impossible. Criminals still have guns in Australia, UK, China, Japan, etc, etc. Mafia, corrupt cops, and street criminals alike. But nobody every talks about Switzerland, or about how their government ISSUES "assault" rifles to its citizenry. Nobody knows about the gun violence in that country (or lack of).
And this "assault" thing. What a crock of rhetorical propaganda that is. Define: assault. Thanks, now define: rifle. Great job, now define: car, knife, shoe, metal bar, motorcycle, toothbrush, and light saber.
The biggest flaw in our current level of "gun control" in this country are gun free zones. Gun free zones are some of the most dangerous places you can go to, and unfortunately, all of our schools are that way. Makes me sad that there are still americans that are defending gun free zone laws after the plethora of innocent children they have killed in the last decade.
