You gun lovers seem to have a lot of ideas about who shouldn't have guns, but fall short when it comes to actually taking guns away from people who shouldn't have them.
You anti-gun nuts seem to have a lot of ideas about what we "gun nuts" think.
But when pressed you offer nothing but semantics, ignorance or flat out unfeasible semi-less than nuke options (unfeasible if one wants to maintain respect for our rule of law of governance).
Mandatory gun safes, for example, might have kept Newtown safe.
I'm sure a million things could have kept Newtown safe.
However, are we to start crafting laws for every single event that occurs with a similar risk to being struck by lightning?
Would you support that? How about mandatory firearms training?
I absolutely support gun safes. Where do you think mine reside? I also feel they'd prevent most "accidents", particularly the ones when children are involved.
However, how do you propose to enforce such measure(s)? Would such a law give law enforcement the authority to randomly enter a person's home to ensure compliance? What other Constitutional right has that level of legal intrusion?
As for training, I also support that. But a similar issue remains to be worked out as described above.
Also, IIRC, a large component of the Heller decision was that rendering firearms useless by locks, disassembley requirements ect amounted to a de facto ban and was therefore unconstitutional.
The reason I favor simply banning guns across the board is because the piecemeal measures we have in place don't work.
There's so much wrong with this statement it should get its own post, but that would also be overly dignifying it.
First, if memory serves this is the first time you've openly admitted being a control freak POS. You might want to work on that. Getting over yourself might help too. Going and [...]ing yourself would also help.
It has been documented on this very site multiple times the laws and infrastructure in existence that is poorly or completely not funded. Claiming they don't work is like claiming airbags don't work when your lemon of a car doesn't deploy one in a crash. Damn, you always came across as illogically biased in this but now you're just venturing into the realm of flat out stupidity.
And you want others to suffer for your stupidity to be placated.
There doesn't seem to be any other way. "This is why we can't have nice things."
BS. Think harder. Hold your breath while you do if you need to conserve processing power.
