Inner city an urban area are mostly black and have TONS of guns. Were are the anti-gun dems doing something about THEM?
We all know those guns come primarily from states with weak gun control laws, most urban areas have strict gun laws whose intent is defeated by states with lose gun laws.

If it prevents even one shooting don't you think that would be worth it?. Or will you stick with the selfish "thou shall not infringe" mentality that tells the world that you don't care that children continue to be slaughtered as long as the gun owner can get what he wants?

Yes. you are pretending. You advocate for "gun-free" zones which is nothing more than pretending that criminals are going to honor that policy within a specific space. How utterly dumb is that? "Can't take a gun in there ... there's a sign!!"

And sorry, I'm not going to surrender my constitutional rights to some self-righteous bureaucrat who doesn't like my attitude and therefore puts a big red X on the "can own a gun" block. F--k that.

It's nothing more than an act of impotent cowardice to want to disarm law abiding citizens. it's not going to happen. I don't care how you feel about it or if you think I'm selfish to protect my constitutional rights. You can live with it or let it burn you up. Either way, it's not going to change.

Prevents one shooting is a silly view point. Thou shall not infringe is a serious issue you fail to see. Founding fathers were smart people..
Criminals who intend on killing someone will buy a weapon under the table, black market.
How about make killing illegal. Oh, it is. How about get rid of the 3 strikes law. How about making a law that when a person kills using a weapon, automatic life no parole or Death penalty. Hmm, some states there is.
The problem is liberals dont want to address the problem. Crime. Why does it happen? Who is committing it?
Many other ways to address crime. But, you just want to make it more difficult for Law Abiding Citizens to get guns. Its a right you know. Assault weapons term is a lie. (AR15 is not an M4/M16)
Liberals are fascinating with emotionally driven answers. Not actual factually based solutions.
You want crime to stop, lets come up with a solution to killing. Keep families together, or at least promote it. Stop sending kids home on SSRI mind altering drugs to deal with their mental issues. Stop making everyone a winner in sports..
Use that superior liberal education you have and fix things, dont address a very specific tool. Now, go ahead and think about it or do the standard, Smack face or roll eyes..

The problem with that approach is we'll have people like the Democrats determining who should and shouldn't get guns. You know, the same people who weaponized the FBI, the IRS, the DOJ and the State Department against their political opponents?

No thanks. I don't think I want the Democrats determining that someone can't get a gun to defend their family because they attended marital counseling 30 years ago.

Hey Dave. If building a border wall prevents even one murder by an illegal alien or one drug overdose, don't you think it would be worth it?
