Why have any laws to begin with? Criminals by definition don't follow them anyway.
How is a gun illegal?

How is it possible to put a human condition on a inanimate hunk of wood and steel?

Keep letting massacres occur more frequently and it'll happen. Right now people like their guns over other people's lives still.

Certainly would be if they were all a part of s single shooting event, but you already knew that.

As high as the absolute number of gun homicides is in Chicago, the homicide rate does not clear top ten.

I don’t know if enough of them have the attention span to take on the US Constitution.

There is a seismic shift building largely because the NRA and other pro-gun groups are so recalcitrant about enacting sensible gun laws that there will come a time where the anti-gun movement will explode. When it does the NRA and pro-gun legislators will scramble to pass gun restrictions, but by then it will be too little, too late.

Another ignorant anti gun nut. some measure of Gun Control just what do you call the existing 20,000 laws regulating firearms? Oh of course, you're ignorant on the topic an think there aren't any laws.

Fortunately the Supreme Court has ruled against you, taking precedence over liberal willful ignorance.

The more you scream for gun control, the more guns dealers will sell. Under obama , gun sales soared. Under Trump, gun sales dropped. But now that the yelling for bans is gaining in crescendo, gun sales will go up.

Thank you for supporting the gun industry.

“Sensible” and gun laws are mutually exclusive.

Hmm....

I thought murder was already illegal?


Guess we need more laws to make murder even more illegal??..
