You've explained nothing.
You've resorted to silly cliche', and failed to make any point at all because you're using decade old arguments that have been shot to pieces ad nauseum everywhere, including right here on this board.
I'm not a big grammar, semantics guy. But when part of your defense of your position is a semantic take on the 2nd amend. and then you show yourself woefully lacking in your native language, it has a bearing on the legitimacy of your argument.
I've explained my position over and over and over and over again. If you don't accept it- fine! I really don't care at this point.
Have a good night.
Beginning in 1998, Canadians spent a whopping $2.7 billion on creating and running a registry for long guns -- in the U.S., the same amount per gun owner would come to $67 billion. For all that money, the registry was never credited with solving a single murder. Instead, it became an enormous waste of police officers' time, diverting their efforts from traditional policing activities.
$67 billion, here, $67 billion there, and pretty soon we're talking some real money for a false sense of security with not a murder solved - an expensive fiasco like MD's ballistic fingerprint feelgood law.
There's a deficit, eh?
We've heard over and over again, "We don't need new laws. We just need to enforce the old laws better."
Well, we see here how interested some gun nuts are in that.
The fact that something won't be successful 100% of the time is not a reason not to do it.
And having a computer search records has got to be less expensive for taxpayers than paying desk jockeys to do it manually.
It's an embarrassment to America as a culture that we even have to have this debate over modernizing an outdated system.
It's an embarrassment that we have had, and continue to have mass shootings in this Country, and we can't agree on what the real cause is.It's an embarrassment to America as a culture that we even have to have this debate over modernizing an outdated system.
My solution would be for communities with high murder rates to try to model their values, and priorities after those with far lower murder rates, but such ideas are readily dismissed in favor of even more of the types of laws and regulations that have failed already.
The only way to stop gun violence is to rid this country of all guns. I do not see that happening.
My children are my legacy.
