It's the #1 play for all statist (Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Hillary, etc). Do you even understand how Freedom works?

Eliminate means of resistance from the peasant population, implement overwhelming oppression, then loot the system of every last nickel and dime that isn't nailed down to the floor.

Once the roads are reduced to ruin from earthquakes and unemployment runs to 92 percent, people will have no choice but CANNIBAL ANARCHY and the state economy will be, by leftist definition, perfect.

No one will have to worry about costs of anything or the ridiculous ruse of maintaining state services that are unsustainably funded by taxpayers because everything will be irreparably destroyed beyond recognition.

Life will be simple and FREE! Every democrat will stagger to their feet in the morning, pick up a pointed stick and attempt to eviscerate their neighbor for the minuscule chance of receiving 2 slices of white bread rations from the state controlled grocery distribution center.

This is the promise and glory of FREEDOM!

As for Australia, an 80% decrease in suicide with a similar effect on homicide, but the info is less precise. It became illegal to own certain long guns. Not all guns. They attribute the effects to a combination of removal and strengthening of the law and its enforcement.

With the law against murder, that means murder never happens? One day you will understand what liberty actually is. What was wrong? Felons register to vote every day. The mechanism to make sure they don't cast a vote isn't there in any system, not without voter ID and the magnetic bar they swipe and pops up all the info
Not quite sure what all of that means or why you posted it...my point was that you pass legislation even though you know it will not prevent the commission of a crime

huh? The law requiring a background check is enforced, certainly some people circumvent it, but that does not mean the law is not working as intended.

Based on your basic (u)Probability model, those stats indicate the following:
  • What is the party affiliation for the majority of felons who did not register to vote?
    Probably democrat based on finite population sampling model.
  • How many of these felons who registered to vote were convicted of gun crimes?
    Doesn't matter, sampling would still indicate higher for democrats.
  • How many gun crimes were committed by people with a prior criminal history?
    Not a point made by me.
  • What is the party affiliation of gun crime perpetrators who have no prior criminal history?
    Not a point made by me.

Glad I could help here, if you need more assistance with this just let me know

OMG, is that the best response you could come up with? Accusing me of being a union worker grunt? That is sad.

Isn't that what I have been saying..... "The feel good law"


If I want to kill you, what is going to stop me? The police? LOL!
It is not like evil announces itself to warn the world, before it strikes
