    Today North KaKalaKi passed a new law no longer requiring a Sherriff's Department approval permit to purchase a handgun. Now buying a handgun is just like buying a hunting rifle. $200 and thirty minutes and you've got a Glock! Also open carry here so you can stra it on visibly pretty much everywhere. 'MURIKA!!!

    SMDH..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    That’s great news!

    Now tell me more about where I can get some of these $200 Glocks?

    Nashville is being compared to Uvalde.

    "The police were much more proactive in Nashville."

    Um yea but the Nashville shooter had a handgun, the Uvalde shooter had a semi-automatic weapon.

    She was armed with 2 assault-type guns and a 9-millimetre pistol,” the police said.

    ^fwiw, those Nashville LEOs were on point and systematic. Commendable.

    I believe the shooter had 2 rifles and a handgun. The folding rifle (Keltec) has features like a handgun but still technically a rifle. All are semi-automatic.

    So how much of the school shooting phenomena is now self perpetuating?

    Do our children remember every one of these incident and invoke the names of the shooters in conversation or in rare cases maybe identify with one of these mentally ill people? And when pushed too far by life some snap and here we go again.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    it’s called a LEO trade in. Yes, In America, you too can carry a field tested, former duty weapon. The proceeds are used to keep up with the arms race.

    My bad, realized last night I was wrong.

    I certainly understand being afraid of running into an automatic weapon, I am. But if you are, you shouldn't really sign up for the job.

    The proceeds are used to fuel the arms race not to keep up with.

    Quick google gives some back ground as she's referenced it before: https://www.businessinsider.com/marj...-school-2022-6

    Early '92 I bought a Glock 19 at a gun show. It was most likely a surplus cop gun, based on what I later learned after visiting the gun shop that was running the booth at the show. Shoulda bought a new one.

    I see she had time to add stickers to her arsenal before her murder spree. How bizarre.

    here is one answer to core shot's "what has changed...?"
    (it's a bit of a read but worthwhile perspective on the culture surrounding guns, gun history, gun marketing, gun politics, etc; i'm not a subscriber but was able to see it all)

    gun sales targeted black guns at consumers and was wildly successful for manufacturers

    I would read that. But I’m paywalled. I don’t get that shit at all. Give me some popups or other interspersed ads.

    Anyway. I get the idea that gun sales and gun marketing changed. Used to be that little billy had a 22 rifle. Now he can go full AR. But the last tragic shooting was semi auto pistol and a shotgun. Sure. Let’s ban all guns. Of any type. But also. The point of my question was that something changed. Britain was talking about banning pointy knives a few years ago. What’s next? No more pointy cushions in case the Spanish Inquisition shows up?

    I have no answers. But I do know there has been a huge change in society.

    What is the down side of banning weapons designed and used for killing humans in a kill or be killed legal war? Other than a minor economic disruption for a small part of the economy? I don't see one. The up side is fewer dead kids. Sounds like a win.

    I’ve always been pretty strong on 1A and 2A.

    But yeah. AR is a bit different. Mentally and IRL. Fun to shoot. But scary at the same time.

    But what’s the next ban? Knives. Fucking pointy knives. Fuck those things.

    But AR ban leads to any semi auto ban. Which leads to only bolt action and six shooters. Which might not be a bad thing. Why can’t I buy a howitzer? I want to shoot some avy terrain.
