That's why we just stop selling most forms of weaponry and wait for the present ones to become inoperable.

You can go out and buy an operable Civil War gun that was made with vastly
inferior metal to today's guns and has not been properly maintained lo these
many years. Any modern gun which is even moderately well maintained will
last much longer. The human race will be gone before today's guns 'rust away'.
And don't even think you're gonna cut off the supply of ammo. By the time
the highly unlikely happens and ammo is banned in this country the stockpiles
will certainly last until the ultimate pandemic occurs. Wouldn't it be more
cost effective to get some proper mental health care going in this country
and put anybody who commits a felony with a gun away for life?

Agreed. That's why we just stop selling most forms of weaponry and wait for the present ones to become inoperable.

WOW! That's your plan... That will do it. That will get all them totally illegal weps off the streets and out of the hands of all the bad guys.


Yup.







Unbeleivable.... truly unbelievable.





Gary, about that course in Reality Check. First class will be on the life expectancy and availability of the standard Kalashnikov 7.62 Assault Rifle or in street terms, the "Chopper" AK-47. Basically, endless....

you see Gary there is nohting you can do to pry those weapons out of the hands of god fearing Merkins. Nothing.

Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing. And by the time you do that? NOTHING!

Nyet!

Nada.

Zip.

No tender!

So get in line at Cabelas and join American Manhood. Get armed, get right with god. An American god. One that kills.

That is the primary source for all the bad guys to get their weps.

So, Gary, your heart is obviously in a good place so I'll ask you the same
question which no gun control advocate ever answers cogently or coherently:

How you gonna go about disarming 200 million people?


Here's Gary awesome and "coherent" plan...

Here's the problem. Acquiring the illegal guns is virtually impossible.

Here's the problem. Acquiring the illegal guns is virtually impossible. The only way to get them is one at a time when they are used in the commission of a crime (if the criminal is apprehended with a gun.) Of course he's probably got five more waiting at home for when he gets out.

Not at all impossible. Multiple studies show that 30-50% of "crime guns" were diverted from legitimate trade less than five years prior to recovery. Start by cutting off the supply and within five years there would be significant improvement. Universal background checks, tighter restrictions on dealers, better record keeping and tougher penalties for non-compliance by private individuals or dealers. Even a 5% reduction in availability of "crime guns" is thousands less shootings each year. Less shootings means less legitimate demand, which means less law-abiding citizens shooting their spouses and kids or going postal.

The only difficult part is that such legislation would reduce wholesale gun sales, and therefore is vehemently opposed by the Gun Industry.

I'm going to get a good crossbow. Very Accurate. Very powerful. Very quiet. Very intimidating.

And very slow to repeat.

That's cool. When some pissed off goth teenager walks into the school cafeteria and gets off a shot, how long to reload? Can he reload before all the jocks start pummeling him?

Any modern gun which is even moderately well maintained will
last much longer. The human race will be gone before today's guns 'rust away'.
And don't even think you're gonna cut off the supply of ammo. By the time

Good points. Like I said, it's a long term solution, gotta start somewhere? What's the alternative?

Wouldn't it be more
cost effective to get some proper mental health care going in this country
and put anybody who commits a felony with a gun away for life?

Proper mental health care would be great. Unfortunately, our spending priority currently is spending billions to blow up goatherds in the middle-east. Life terms for armed robbery would constitutionally cruel and unusual punishment.

The way things are going that'll change if the NRA doesn't get on board with some reforms. But, some men you just can't reach. From one extreme to another...

Hey, Ron, did you come up with a citation for that Feinstein quote yet? Or is what you wish she said more important than what she did say?

In the meantime, all them millions of ILLEGAL weapons are in use to commit more crimes and kill innocent Americans.

Bravo!


Edit... Gary, please do post any valid data that indicates how many of the criminals that are in possession of all them millions of illegal guns are active card carrying members of the NRA.

Senator Dianne Feinstein opposed an amendment to her so-called assault weapons ban legislation that would allow veterans to continue buying firearms the bill would outlaw. Retired police would have been exempt but not veterans.

What she actually said was:

"SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN: If I understand this, this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was in effect and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States. So that included active military.

The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, itís not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.

So, you know, I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to-- if youíre going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally donít have access to this kind of weapon.
