If the other 2000 guns are equal to the Assault rifle, why ban the assault rifle? Why are the police exempt from the ban if they can also choose from these other 2000 guns? I didn't say anything about not needing laws. I just stated criminals don't obey laws. It is a known fact that states that allow people to carry concealed weapons are safer than states with strict gun control. Most criminals don't want to die. I know you said my comment about defenseless people was a strawman, but history says otherwise. Chicago and D.C. Show otherwise.
Why did the police still need assault rifles when the assault rifle ban was in place?
Criminals are in favor of gun control. Laws don't control them as is proven every day in Chicago, D.C., etc... Defenseless sheeple are easier to rob, rape, kill and enslave. That would make those who propose gun control laws either partners in crime or too dumb to let out of the house. If (insert word) bans worked, that long standing ban we have on murder would have rendered weapons useless long ago. Gun control laws only work against law abiding men and women. Some lawmakers seem to have declared war on us.
Harp is correct. The states should be responsible for this type of organization. The federal government is and should be constrained by the constitution to do only those things enumerated to it through our laws. The people of the United States always step up to provide for those in need. As we saw with Katrina, the federal government and the red-tape machine behind it only get in the way, delaying the support that private citizens step up to provide. It also usurps the rights and responsibilities of the state to provide for it's residents.
Happy, Easy, Fendrel, ScottyM owned you in this thread. It was almost like watching a slow motion train wreck as you guys disintegrated into name calling. Great thread.
And before you start spouting more about there not being any voter fraud: http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/297461/reality-voter-fraud-john-fund
HWNB said, "True access to the ballot box is the bane of conservatives and reactionaries everywhere."
Did the new black panthers tell you that? Did Holder whisper that sweet nothing in your ear?
Voter ID laws are the bane of liberals and progressives everywhere. They help prevent voter fraud.
Since when is a lefty (or a righty for that matter) worried about cost effectiveness? Are you saying anything the government does is cost effective? Name just one thing.
Why did you have to go and spoil the fun with facts? I was just about to make a statement about how the only way MSNBC is considered to be a SOURCE of news is because everything they report is completely manufactured in house.
The left of this country could care less what the majority wants. Prop 8 was passed in california by the majority and the left took it to court to their activist judges and got it overturned. They are perfectly fine with the democratic process until it works against them.
Where is the concrete proof? Irrational? That's only a valid arguement in a fantasy world without humans.
