    I hope some of you aren't wasting all your time engaging with nitwits.

    Please take some time to write your senators to pass HR8 and demand that further gun control bills be passed.

    The biggest actual obstacle would be the massive amount of money $$$$$ the government would have to print to compensate all these ammosexuals for their personal arsenals. I suspect that the fact that they could no longer brag online and poste about the cool but now illegal gunz without getting a visit from the ATF. They/we could no longer take them to the range and play with them there.. Taking all the fun out of it might persuade most except the true anarchists to comply and find a different hobby.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Yeah. Subways in NYC are super safe these days. Just don't get pushed on the tracks or shot.

    leroy you and Bobby stupid prove his point. As a gun owner, I look at you assholes and see the problem

    Sure, yea, anti gun types aren't willing to sacrifice their ire, blame, and hatred for gun owners, nor their smug attachment to being right, and thier insistence the world can be some sort of perfect place, and are therefore incapable of pursuing any actually possible solutions. Agreed.

    Your hate might provide you with some dopamine but it won't create any solutions .

    I already asked what assault rifle owners could do and the answer was destroy them....

    That wont happen as they are valuable. There are no buy backs in place and selling to another private owner literally does nothing.

    So... What exactly is the personal sacrifice you speak of?

    Usually I say the affordability of guns designed for mass production are a problem, but that DD is unusual.

    C'mon. Do you think all these vets came back as animals and can't be trained to simply protect a school? That they don't have kids themselves? That they never interacted with local kids in Afghanistan or wherever they served? That schools can't do an interview or background check on them beforehand?

    That doesn't make any sense. Arguing with me on TGR literally does nothing for your cause. Are you saying its my fault youre engaging me?

    Bobby, you the NRA & and the GQP can try and sell that narrative. Anyone with a brain knows it is horse shit.
    Close down sales of guns to civilians and buy back all of the guns out there.
    Put a bounty out and make it very profitable to snitch out your gun fag neighbor.
    Make having a banned weapon a very long prison term.
    Within a few years the guns and this issue are gone.

    Support a federal, state, and local registry. Support insurance requirements. Support destroying all confiscated firearms. Quit supporting gun manufacturers who stand in the way of any progress, etc and etc….

    As I said previously, you can't let perfect be the enemy of good. You've got to start somewhere and maybe the results won't be immediate. You start with something and you work from there.

    I was told in this thread that if I own guns, it’s a waste of time to write legislators.

    I don't really pay attention to what I buy, other than quality. I already support that other stuff.

    Do you actually believe any of that is remotely possible? I've got some nice beach front property for you in TN.
