It is fucked up to know that we are dying the second we are born.

I understand that, but still.

Are you trying to say that criminals don't obey gun laws?

Funny that. So the suggestion that people should not have guns... is laughable?

I mean, since a gun by itself does not kill a person, and since a person by themselves is inherently a lot less dangerous than a person with a gun... all talk of perhaps not mixing guns and people together is poorly thought out liberal knee jerk reactions?

Yeah, pretty much. Big Grin

Seriously, though, murders by firearm are primarily by handgun. There were as many or more people murdered with knives/edged weapons than by rifles/shotguns. The whole "assault weapons" ban was (and is) nonsense.

So, instead of lumping all firearms together, let's address the actual issues.
Handguns are easy to conceal and are the weapon of choice by criminals.

California banned .50 caliber rifles -- DESPITE the fact that not one crime had been committed with one. (Who's going to spend $12,000 on a 30 lbs gun to rob a liquor store??)

Good move, shitstain Legislators...... You DID something... (useless)
