    You realize that you look like you have zero idea what you're talking about. We're not about to restrict the rights of 99.999% of the people over some maniacs. What happened there could have happened with a 10/22 just as easily but you will never understand that because all you do is emote and not research.

    To use an old SAT test format of filling in the blank:

    The NRA is to "defending the Constitution" as the Black Panther's were to "defending jungle wildlife"

    :salute: to "hyper political gun nut group"

    I'm sorry, your need for dichotomous answers carries no water here. If you can afford a full auto carbine, I'm happy you can have one! I'll let you know in advance they are very cost prohibitive, so save up your money! It's not like the gov is going to go house to house taking peoples stuff.

    Like all other Western countries, we will have to do this to protect the rest of the population.

    Because the US is the world champion of mass shootings since decades.

    Many other nations have done it and they would never go back.

    Thanks for the link. Watched the whole thing.

    Simple fact of the matter, whether you and I agree or not, there is a process to amend the Constitution and until your side starts to start that process, y'all are just crying.

    Australia is not America and doesn't face the same levels of violence from inner city gangs. You ban honest people from owning guns then you'll see a wave of violence, gun, knife, and strong arm robberies like you've never seen before.

    nope, remember how many times you've dodged this little bit https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2018/crime-in-the-u.s.-2018/tables/table-43 where you are shown EXACTLY where the largest amount of violent crime exists but you refuse to answer because your courage only extends to harass the 99.999% of safe people.

    Again, why would you not address the 54% of ALL MURDERS in the US? Is it because you're scared?

    Thanks.

    The first step is to admit that the proliferation of guns is a poison to American society.

    Constitutions are not there to crush the people but to ensure their security.

    So, if a majority of people want change - and the GOP elected officials are no longer subservient to the NRA lobby - change is possible.

    This is the argument I've heard a hundred times on this forum.

    Except that all the countries in the West that have applied severe measures against guns have seen a significant decrease in their homicide rate.

    And we have more than 30 years of statistics on this.

    I never said I am a teacher. But grammar mistakes and typos are what those with nothing to say on an issue resort to calling out in order to disrupt a conversation

    That is IT!

    This farce of an excuse has been around for decades! Since the early 2000s, the NRA has been lobbying for more states to expand concealed permits, lower regulations, make it easier to get guns, and then they ignore the data that proves their efforts are killing more people, not saving them.

    This crazy lobbying organization has done more since the 70s to promote this madness that is tearing us apart.

    Why do you not want to end 54% of ALL MURDERS? https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2018/crime-in-the-u.s.-2018/tables/table-43

    You can't pretend you're worried about the murder rate, when the murder rate is right in your face. Why are you pretending to care?

    They fall for all of the made up election fraud evidence and still repeat it over and over, so par for the course

    It is sad that so many people on all sides believe all the BS that is out there

    No more stupid than the millions of Democrats that think Palin said she could see the Russians from her backyard.

    Your side is losing because of the refusal to hear even common sense solutions and the demand that we do nothing, ever. No matter how often theses things happen.
    People are getting fed up.
    Just wait

    People can also stop being promiscuous, having out of wedlock births, turning children into monsters in Fatherless/Husbandless homes and loosing them on society. Our welfare system enables and fosters this wicked nonsense.

    Guns are what keep 100lb women from being victimized by a 250lbman. Guns are most certainly not a poison.

    The American Constitution protects the citizens from Government overreach.

    Do you know who the NRA is subservient to? It's members. You could almost say they represent the wishes of millions of people across the country.

    Again, the level of violence here in the States far exceeds anything Australia has.
