Pro gun GONE?

Post by Lance Kennedy » Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:29 pm

With the departure of such people as Xouper, this forum topic has become very quiet. Is it that everyone left is now sane enough to recognize that free access to guns is harmful?

And everyone right is sane enough to recognise that self-protection is more important than trusting the government to protect you?

.............and there it is. The illusion of protecting yourself, when the TRUTH is so readily determinable as the opposite. Emotions vs hard data. I know: facts are pesky things. Heres a big rub contra though: You: Gord might be right "for yourself." Problem is, the irresponsible gun nuts think the same thing. You add them all up and "society" is better off with gun restrictions even where the truth is: YOU/GORD are not.

SO....should the law be based on what is good for society, or what is good for Gord?

I feel the same way about Salmonella infected turtles, so you aren't alone. ALL PUBLIC SAFETY regulations have this characteristics. Guns no different except they are supported by erroneous Supreme Court rulings. Gotta love the Supremes.

I have never touched a gun, as I promised my father I never would. I will ask my son, Auguste, to make the same promise.

Hopefully guns, like spitting will imply fade away or became an embarrassing hobby over a couple generations.

Yea, verily.......but not in the USA until the Supremes sing a different tune. One huge area of the law.........they simply got wrong.....almost objectively speaking. You have to "ignore" words in the Constitution to find a private right to own guns..................IMO.

The US Supreme Court judges are political appointees. The version that declared possession of guns to be a human right were under George W. Bush, who received a massive cash injection to his campaign funds from the NRA. So ultimately it boils down to political corruption.

Its more tenuous than that.................but close enough. It will eventually be overturned. Gallons of innocent blood won't do it....until it sloshes on your shoes.........."you" being the Supremes.

The only member who made guns his only topic was "RanB". He left, as we don't have enough people interested in guns to keep a discussion going. He posts on ISF as that forum has more people interested in talking about guns

I don't think there is that much to talk about. I think the removal of guns is simply a slow process like the reduction of farting, smoking or spitting in public. It will take decades.
:D

In the USA, the number of guns purchased keeps increasing, while the number of gun owners is on a slow decline. One group is stockpiling for the apocalypes while the other is making rational decisions.

anyone predict a clash?
