President Biden will announce new executive action on gun control on Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki indicated Wednesday.
The guy in Boulder had one on the Ruger 556 pistol that he used.
This is true. It’s why I think some sort of further regulation for all semi-automatic weapons making the process a little deeper would be okay. I’m not for banning any of them. If everyone could come to the table in good faith some decent legislation on specific guns could be addressed that kept them available and also harder to get. The problem is one side says “they’re coming for your guns” the other side has its fringes that do want some guns banned, and nothing ends up being done at all. Democrats have a very slight majority in congress. There are Democrats I very much expect will oppose most gun legislation and would not pass bans. Even among a lot of Democrats major gun legislation is not popular. People like AOC are the loudest part of the party, they’re not the majority of the party. The truth is it’s simply a political football that gets ran down the field by both sides and neither are all that serious either way in regards to it aside from political gain. I expect little things around the edges to say “hey we kept our promise we did something” when it really won’t do anything.Out of all the potential weapons we can own (excluding class 3), IMO a semi-auto 12GA shotgun is by far the most lethal and dangerous. A 12GA loaded up with #4 Buckshot can do a helluva lot more damage, quicker than a AR15 of any type.
Ok, like what? The vast majority of the firearms used in shootings were all purchased legally. What additionally would you add to the current process?This is true. It’s why I think some sort of further regulation for all semi-automatic weapons making the process a little deeper would be okay. I’m not for banning any of them.
Bingo.I find it fascinating that mass shootings are the primary catalyst for their action. But looking at the statistics, they only represent a very small number of firearm deaths proportionately.
More deaths come from domestic violence, robberies, gang activity, and other illicit illegal activities. Yet we seem to focus on one aspect (not that I don’t want them to stop).
Solution: arm grandmas, crossing guards, teachers, mailmen, pedestrians, shop keepers, DallanC, wives, mothers, husbands, etc.
If everyone could potentially be armed, I’m sure the bad guy will think long and hard about trying to commit a crime or about harming another person.
I know people will disagree, but I firmly believe more laws only hurt the law biding. After all, criminals aren’t people who follow the law.
