So, it's the weapons that are causing manians to want to kill people?

If you believe this, you'd be wrong.

Yes, you are correct. The left has been dividing to conquer the U.S. and the American people for DECADES.

My family are gun owners. I support licenses for all gun owners similar to having to obtain education and a license to drive a vehicle.

There should be levels of licensing depending on the type of weapons one intends to purchase. Some weapons should definitely be more difficult to obtain than others, especially the types that are typically used in mass shooting events.
CA has this and a 4 year old could pass it.

It's time for all good patriots to tell the NRA to go straight to hell. I mean that seriously.

It's time to pass a universal background check requirement. No loopholes, no gun show exceptions.

It's time to pass an assault weapons ban. No semi-automatic weapons.

I also believe in mandatory gun registration. If you have to register your car, there's no reason people can't register their guns.

Thank you for sharing your opinion. I particularly enjoy the very official tone to them. You must be a very important person. Rofl.

Affirmative on the NRA, but negative on the rest the post.

Why do you want to take, force people to live in the 1950's or even worse, before 1911? Why do you want people to have to use technology that goes back to two centuries before?

Never. The NRA is America's preeminent Civil Rights organization. Perhaps you should take your own advice

I do agree, however, it is time to ban your right to speak, write, opine or go to church.


BTW, there is no legal requirement to Register your car. Lots of cars are unregistered. They just can't be driven on public streets.

You can't tell people to "see something, say something", and then in the next breath give them hell when they do just that.

Can anyone here name one mass shooting in the last 2.5 years that was stopped by a citizen using his CCW weapon?

No you can't...……..So much for the good guy with a gun theory, eh?
Clever!

Wasn't it you who asked the other day for an example and I gave you one? If so, now you have tighten up the question.

HOWEVER, since you asked nicely......
