Nine Arrested by DEA and Seattle Police for Gun and Drug Trafficking - Shoreline-Lake Forest Park, WA Patch

Over the course of the month-long investigation law enforcement seized nearly three pounds of heroin and nearly one pound of methamphetamine. Fourteen firearms were purchased by a person working with law enforcement: seven shotguns, two rifles and five handguns. Some of the weapons had been reported stolen in jurisdictions as widespread as Tacoma and Brier, Washington.

You bet your sweet arse that gangs/criminals are gonna own 'em. And use 'em. It's too late for gun control. They're everywhere.

They have a very good idea about women carrying.........but the pink gun don't think so, black and chrome looks better

Like the guy said "the laws are there" it's the people breaking the law that need to be punished and not the rest of us.

Our military bases have some of the strictest gun controls in the nation!

How'd that work out at Fort Hood for everyone?

So what do you guys propose to do about it? You want to ban 300 million firearms? Good luck with that.

Of course not. But why are people allowed to purchase ARs?

Since when does control equal ban? Isn't almost every product in our nation controlled? It's not just guns. I challenge anyone to name a few products that are not regulated.

And for a moment, let's assume that there will Never be any kind of a 'tyrannical' takeover ok?

Honestly, because they're the best tool for the job of killing. All our military are issued M16s that are basicly full auto ARs. Guns have no other purpose but to kill. Ever since the first human tied a rock to a stick other humans have tried to make a better club. when the ancients were sitting around the campfire eating their mammoth steaks they discussed and planned how to make more efficient clubs and spears. It's built into the human gene pool. Why would you deny the law abiding citizen the chance to arm himself with the best technology out there just to prevent the one in a million whacko from getting one?
Bottom line, you don't like them, talk to your governor and state rep and get them banned from your area. That is reasonable under the SCOTUS ruling. In Arizona, we like them and have no intention of banning them.
Why is it that when a republican doesn't like a gun they just don't buy it but when a democrat doesn't like a gun they ban it?
I'm a liberal independant by the way.
