Not sure where I said that. Guns are versatile items in the right hands. Not necessarily needed for every issue.LDS Man, seriously, this talk of needing a gun to prevent any sort of violence is downright creepy. Why does it have to be the answer to everything?
An interesting poll set of poll results dispute that as do the states that register "assault weapons." In some cases, its about the incremental increase to a full ban.We never wanted a national gun registry. President Obama's attempt at a gun control law did not have that. In fact, it had a law that would prevent it.
You're assuming he shot her rather than beat or stabbed her to death. Criminals would still have access to guns while the law abiding would not. I have a huge problem with that.In the example you made about the guy stalking a woman, wouldn't it be better to make sure the stalker did not have a gun? (Yeah, sure, you'll say criminals will get it anyway, but if we just made them harder to get, they'd be harder to get!)
Quotes from various dems. Some still in office.Democrats DO NOT want to outlaw guns. Here's what we want:
As implied, its mostly a myth. http://dailycaller.com/2016/10/22/ccw-weekend-the-myth-of-the-gun-show-loophole/1. Closing of gun show loopholes.
Evaluation based on what standards? You've called me creepy and others think I'm crazy to own a gun. Almost 20 years and I've never hurt anyone or even needed to pull it out visibly. What shrink will sign off on that. "Hmm, if this guy kills someone, I could get sued..." I don't object to training classes. I object to the antigun having a hand in it. Look at DC. Classes were set up to prevent people from people able to pass. Make them high school classes. Basics only. Correspondence courses? How would that work? How do you certify who did the course? Special variants? Like what? Sounds like a way to be more complicated.2. For those who desire to gain a carry permit, psychiatric evaluation, training classes, and classes on gun safety, including annual correspondence courses. Special variants for concealed weapons permits.
Define high caliber. Most deaths don't use high caliber weapons. Same with magazines. Simply a way to show "I'm doing SOMETHING! Reelect me!!"3. Bans on high-caliber firearms and magazines. (Military grade rifles are NOT necessary for any civilian use.)
Do you have any idea what the penalties are already? Most of the gun dealers that get in trouble with the ATF do so over paperwork being wrong not that they are selling illegally.4. Stricter penalties for gun dealers who violate existing rules.
Convictions for DV already apply.5. Federal laws prohibiting those with a history of domestic violence from owning firearms.
Yes. What do gun owners get out of this?Is that too much to ask?
Suit yourself. There is plenty out there about what the CDC was doing and why it was wrong.Reading your source, I'm just going to dismiss it, instead of going through a point by point argument as to why any person with a semblance of rationality would use it as a source, cause it's from the Federalist. Not the most unbiased dispenser of truth, I'd say.
I don't object to digitizing some of the information as long as it isn't online or accessible to the public in anyway or to more research provided it isn't biased and has good methodology and repeatable results.Good read about the NRA and sound science.
