Problem is there isn't a universal background check before you can become a Liberal. Hell, you can order your Liberal Card right off the internet and get it no problem.

Not the argument...

Guns are too ubiquitous, and too easy to acquire.

 

Gun owners aren't more likely to turn violent, just more likely to cause multiple deaths if/when they do.

 

Pit bulls aren't more likely to bite you than a sheltie, just when they do bite, they cause serious injury/death, where the sheltie may or may not make you bleed.

 

It's not the individual, it's their destruction potential that is the concern.

Tell that to the people in Europe being rammed by vehicles in crowded places.

That difference is easily explained by abortion

Where would we be if doctors and engineers solved problems the way people "solve" political issues? Might have some crazy dreams thinking about that before going to sleep!

Well, their homicide rate is much lower than ours, so fashioning weapons out of non-weapons seems a less efficient way to murder people in the long run.

Please don't take this personally, I like you.

Fuck you. Forever your side of the aisle has belittled us as right winged gun nuts. That we were the problem. That if we would just let you do whatever you want everything would be ok. Turns out you folks are lunitics too.

NOW all if a sudden you get it. Its not us, its the lunitics? 

 

"My side" well if I have to answer for everyone on the opposite side of the political spectrum, it's going to take a while. My position has largely remained the same. Gun control measures, when properly implemented and enforced reduce homicide rates... Guns are very efficient weapons for killing lots of people. They're not the only weapons, but they're the most common used here...

If you take critical statements like this about guns personally, I'm sorry. I wasn't ever talking about you, I was talking about the gun. It was designed as a weapon, developed as a weapon, manufactured as a weapon, marketed as a weapon, and sold as a weapon, and I don't think it makes sense for people to have easy access to these weapons. They make it too easy to kill people. 

 

And it's easy to blame a "crazy" person or a "bad" person but accidents happen, emotions cloud rational thought, depression can cripple someone's judgement temporarily, and I think we should make it harder to end a life, not easier.

I find it amusing -

The war on drugs "failed".

20+ million illegals could never be rounded up.

But we should outlaw guns and collect all 300 mijillion of them.

but accidents happen

One gun could kill multiple victims, but one gun could also protect an individual from multiple aggressors. Why do we usually see the negative side?

Accidents happen, that's why training should happen.

OK, what if we eliminate all guns except revolvers, bolt-action rifles, and double-barrel shotguns? Grenades are definitely out.

Right, like Switzerland where gun ownership is basically required by their government.

You mean where all guns are registered nationally, and ammunition is highly regulated... Yeah, that's an effective gun control system.

It contradicts your premise that the availability of firearms equals violence.  

What was your (revised) point again?

In the United States you can make the argument that large concentrations of liberals cause gun violence.   Statistics tend to support that argument.

You guys are having some severe motorcycle withdraw...

You're not gonna change anyone's political opinion on OR, so why argue about it? Were a bunch of stubborn libtards, bigots, snowflakes, or racists. Whatever the hip new label is right now. I can't keep up with it, I'm too busy riding my motorcycle. :lol:

Here is everything you need to know about Gun Control laws in the US:

  1. California has among the most restrictive gun laws in the country.
  2. The California Senate (including Diane Fienstien) are responsible for many of these restrictive gun laws
  3. In 2011 the same California Senate voted 28-8 to exempt THEMSELVES from these restrictive gun laws http://joeforamerica.com/2017/01/california-senate-exempt-gun-laws/  
  4. Clearly their lives are more important and than the lives of the citizens of the Peoples Republic of California :dunno:

Stop making sense. You are talking to an audience with their fingers in their ears.
