  • robertp:  "unscrupulous" can describe quite a variety of behavior from unethical & unprincipled all the way to criminal activity; how would you make a distinction between the many in-between categories?  And living a "peaceful lifestyle," while …
  • robertp: How would you advise the average non firearms-savvy individual how to implement & proceed with these two differing sorts of response and/or actions? 
  • @NeverLoseGuy:  "Banning?"  By what justification & mechanism?
  • @NeverLoseGuy: You, fortunately, have no authorization & ability to accomplish whatever it is that you're attempting to suggest.
  • It appears to me that all four of the above parties are unable to clearly state what they're attempting to communicate.
  • @robertp: What's a 'heavier background check'?  Further intrusive information for an already too invasive, too large and too powerful federal government which has no right to information regarding the protective, defensive materiel of private & …
  • @afreenish: Following Sandy Hook, Obama put the CDC back into the business of researching the causes & effects of crime involving firearms utilized as defensive weapons in the home, anticipating that the results would affirm the left's contentio…
  • @higgsb:  Denying the accuracy of your assertion is pretty simple, for at least eleven other countries have a higher homicide rate than the US per 100,000 population.
  • @amandajustice: You don't mention your place of residence, but only two states --- California & Hawaii --- mandate registration of all firearms, and no federal law requires such.
  • @ianagmdc:  'Military weaponry?'  I'm unable to cite a single instance of a firearm designed for any branch of our armed forces which has been utilized in a civilian homicide, and you cannot identify one either. 
  • @ianagmdc: Kindly provide corroboration of your final sentence, because that claim has long been an unsupported/unsupportable assertion of the hard left. 
  • @amandajustice:  All of your observations are reasonably accurate & factual, yet this exerts no influence on the progressive hard left to whom an armed citizenry is a deterrence to their obsession with power & control.  Until the means to de…
  • @ianagmdc: "Sensible gun laws" (by what definition of "sensible?") already exist to the tune of nearly 20,000 federal, state & local statutes in the US; firearms are one of the more regulated commodities here, but enforcement of many, many of th…
  • And no other country/nation anywhere possesses the quantity of firearms as do we citizens of the US --- probably more than 320 million of them --- yet with so relatively few total fatalites annually; remove the homicide rates in a small number of ci…
  • @ianagmdc & similar thinkers: These students, the mouthpieces for the racous anti-firearms outburst since Parkland, are being used & played by the hard left, although most have no idea of what's actually occurring. Public school age kids sim…
  • There are relatively very few automatic firearms in private hands throughout the US, and they're essentially never involved in criminal activity.  A functional automatic manufactured prior to May,1986 will require probably at least $20,000 minimum t…
  • I omitted 'as an example of automobile violence' following "accident" in the above . . .
  • @robertp:  I'm pleased to have been of help; a 'simple search' would confirm innumerable truths to the hard left, but progressives have no interest because it clashes with their agenda.  I know that in the minds of the uninformed AR means automatic …
  • No constructive purpose would be served by "banning" the ArmaLite-15 type of arm; this is not an automatic, unusually deadly or 'military grade' weapon. It is, in fact, a less powerful caliber than that typically carried by deer hunters across the c…
  • Martinsx1: The NICS, National Instant Criminal Backround Check System, has been in effect since November, 1998.  ". . . lethal assault rifles and big guns . . .?"  An assault rifle is a strictly military weapon and almost impossible for a civilian t…
  • All commercially made firearms are assigned a serial # by the manufacturer, but there's no Federal requirement for a gun buyer or user to be licensed.  However, all dealers who buy & sell must possess a Federal Firearms License (FFL).
  • By all means, and the National Rifle Association has the resources & qualified personnel to provide such training to public schools across the country. BettyG:  by no means does the US "allow(s) anyone to have a gun," but I completely concur wit…
  • hope1001: none of those nations to which you refer have anything resembling the US Constitution, with its unique protection of a basic right from government interference.  Also, none of those countries have a fraction of the quantity of arms in the …
  • hope1001:  I understand "the point of this forum," and an extremely significant point to be made is that because firearms are unable to act on their own, the purposefully misleading term 'gun violence' is, in reality, 'criminal violence.'  Therefore…
  • ChristopherABrown:  The NRA is well aware of the significance of mental health and how it may negatively alter the personality, thinking & actions of an individual; as you also noted, the great majority of the US media is well to the left and ex…
  • vguns:  'Gun control' is the progressive euphanism for complete abolishment of firearms ownership, possession & use in the US; this is the reason that the term 'assault weapon' has no meaning, because it's so vague that it can describe a literal…
  • robertp: the "anti point of view" is a large part of the progressive agenda to essentially eliminate the US Constitution and control ALL aspects of our lives - essentially communism. 
  • robertp:  your candidness is commendable!
  • Tatiana22: nowhere in our constitution is any manner of reference to a requirement of lawful citizens that they                         demonstrate "strong reasons" for firearms ownership & possession --- such is a protected right.
  • ion: are you suggesting that firearms owners in our country, US citizens exersizing a constitutionally-protected       right, should be taxed at a rate three times the norm, for the 'privelege' of utilizing their right? hope1001: you're only one of …
