What if the majority of Americans wanted censorship of the media, press, and speech? What if the majority of Americans wanted troops to be quartered on their neighbors? What if the majority of Americans thought that warrants were unnecessary for search and seizures? What if the majority of Americans thought you should stand trial for a crime as many times as it takes to establish your guilt. What if the majority of Americans considered jury trials an unnecessary and expensive inconvenience?
What if we lived in a fascist state?
But we don’t. We live in a constitutional Republic.
And what if most Americans believe government should provide more services without raising their taxes? Wait...isn't that how Obama was reelected?!
There is no credible evidence that the majority of American's want to get rid of guns. Sure they want to keep guns out of the hands of criminals - good luck with that. The best defense if to be able to shoot and kill the bad guys.
LMAO. You give sane libertarians such a bad name.Originally Posted by Contumacious
When I grew up the Three Stooges were the most violent thing on TV. Today the video games and apps feature killing and it numbs people to violence. Fix that problem first. Obama should lean on the entertainment and gaming industry first then focus on gun shows and waiting periods. Attack your base of support first (Hollywood) then people will respect you for going after the NRA.
If violent games caused people to actually be violent, the streets would be knee deep in blood.
Sane people cannot be turned into violent killers via media of any kind.
If you have something to back up your position I'd like to see it. Your reasoning has been debunked, sometimes reluctantly, over and over again.
IMO, the problem would be actually mentally ill people, or people born into and raised in an environment that puts little value on life.
I'm wondering if anyone can hypothesize why the United States leads civilized nations in gun deaths (other countries similar to us have gun deaths in the hundreds, we had around 9,000 last year.) I'm in no way asking this as an anti-gun stance, but this figure suggests that something is seriously wrong in the US. What is it, exactly?
No gun legislation will ever stop a nut from shooting people. But it may, just may, prevent children from receiving 3 -11 bullet wounds a piece the next time a nut with a gun decides to go on a rampage against them.
I like guns. I'm in the market for a 45. cal Colt Peace Maker. It doesn't need to hold 50 rounds. 6 rounds will do nicely.
