    You have many beliefs....you only now need the evidence to back them up

    The evidence is that everyday lives are saved due to our prison system.

    Can you imagine the death and destruction if tomorrow we released everyone in the prison system?

    I don’t think anyone disagrees that economically rehabilitating our high crime areas through decreasing unemployment will save lives.

    I think this is enough evidence.

    registration has no value in making the public safer. Its a scheme those who want to confiscate guns and prevent private sales worship. since registration does NOTHING positive for gun owners, gun owners should oppose and fight said scheme

    The position is that there is nothing that can be done from the angle of implementing legislation, which will result in any significant, measurable, or worthwhile decrease of recorded incident of homicides, suicides, or non-fatal victimizations. The united states does not have a longstanding record of actually complying with, or adequately enforcing the laws that it implements. Until such actually changes, and the united states becomes a nation with functional rule of law rather than the theory of such, there is no point in bothering with the implementation of new laws to try and address existing problems.

    There is a reason it is constantly stated that the united states does not have rule of law, and that it does not count as a first world nation.

    What is the position of myself for addressing the problem? That it is far too late to do anything, and there is no point in even bothering. The level of firearms saturation in the united states has exceeded critical mass, and there are no signs of that slowing down. In medical terminology, the patient is too far gone to be saved.

    Part of the objective of passing more gun control laws that aren’t enforced isn’t saving lives because, uninformed, they do nothing except 1, provide liberal politicians to dishonestly crow they’ve done something wonderful and, 2, to weaponized gun laws to be capriciously applied against political opposition when they are selectively enforced.

    only if the people who are there registered them.

    any cop who would assume those needing to be served are UNARMED is an idiot

    not a legitimate argument for registration

    Nope, Criminals are Constitutionally exempt from firearms registration requirements, and anytime a warrant is served, it is done on the assumption that all people being served are Armed....

    Only a non LEO would not know this Ron....

    More laws that only affect law abiding citizens and do not affect Criminals at all.
