Rare? Almost one a day is " rare" gotcha.
I guess a culture that admires violence, where having guns is a source of pride and admiration: where many people feel powerless and meaningless in the day to day rat race of corrupt luxury and greed" where workers have no security, and the average American is at the mercy of Big Corporations and a greedy, selfish, cold, materialistic workaholic, out for yourself society; a gun makes them feel in control and powerful. Then add that the only exercise most Americans get is jumping to conclusions; running down anyone and any country that disagree with them; flying off the handle, the only way many of them can defend themselves from anything more menacing than a stuffed animal, is to use a gun.

Mid terms will be rough for GOP still long ways away people forget about these mass shootings quickly you be surprised public forgets quickly. I know the DEM's are going to use the faces of the dead to get them elected it's what they do. The 2018 AW ban is identical to the 94 ban which had zero effect on crime that is something they are going to have a tough time convincing America gun owners of even when you challenge DEMS on it they just say "we have to do something". They just don't care about it personally most of them have armed guards to protect them why should they care about regular people and self defense.

Not to mention all the online and print classified boards. There is NO ONE monitoring all these, it would take every law enforcement agent from every agency for that level of enforcement!

Inanimate objects donít cause carnage! What are you, 8 years old? Iíve watched a lot of inanimate objects for years and none of them have ever moved a fraction of an inch by themselves, much less cause any carnage!

People have had enough of the carnage these weapons cause, enough is enough.

2a is about a well "regulated" militia. Where do you train and who is your commander?

Boy, would that be the pits here.

Putting aside that we can now carry swords in Texas, it would be the pits considering how my day to day dress out is a Swiss Army in one pocket and a clip "Buck Knife" in the other.

It would be the pits because giving a teen a Swiss Army knife as a present is not only so common, it might be considered one of those items to start one on adult hood. After all, consider how versatile the Boy Scout Knife was and who we gave them to.

For what people say is a civilized country, it seems to be a nutty place:

(I especially "like" what they say about lock knives.....and "good reasons")

Rather reminds me when I got chastised for buying silver quarters at spot prices and someone said they could get such out of change in shopping.

I was wondering when in the heck they were shopping at.

This is just handing Republicans valuable campaign material for this November in the rural states. I thought for sure the Dems would have an easy time this fall with Trump in office but it looks to me like they'd rather remain the party of NY, MA, NJ, CT, and the west coast.

Typical Statist hypocrisy. I wonder why they don't draft a bill to defund the military...
I guy I know in Nevada owns a fully functional T-55. With functional cannon.

A guy in CA who recently died was a huge tank collector. A lot of them fully functional and all were auctioned off sometime last year.

Once again, idiots, who know absolutely nothing, believe they know whatís better for you.

I donít think this bill will get out of committee.

Absolute BS. Read my above post. Tanks can have road tracks that can drive on streets.

Another one who knows nothing.
