In Texas there's no age limit afaik, and definitely no age limit for "long guns" bought from unlicensed dealers at gun fairs.

I’m not sure you’re right Pete, from their legislation:-

(2) intentionally or knowingly sells, rents, leases, or gives or offers to sell, rent, lease, or give to any child younger than 18 years of age any firearm, club, or location-restricted knife;

I mean, sure, gun control laws would do absolutely nothing to prevent unfortunate gun massacres, yet both the Buffalo and Uvalde mass murderers waited until their 18th birthdays to legally buy AR-15s. It's just, you know, a totally weird coincidence.

Here's To view the link you have to Register or Login laying out what To view the link you have to Register or Login about the GOP's worldview: The purpose of government (i.e. the GOP) is to defend "families and values" (the natural order of things i.e. white men on top) against the enemy of "wokeness" and "CRT", that is the flattening of hierarchies in the name of democracy, equality, liberty and justice for all. When he says these democratic values are to blame for the mass murder event he means literally the shooter was forced to murder because of the clear and present threat to white supremacy.

I should probably post this in the Trump thread, but here seems as good.

We were in The Bahamas the last week (Sorry Selhurst Celtic) and a very high percentage of the guest at the resort were from the "South", i.e. Georgia, Texas, Carolina's, Mississippi etc.. The arrogance and social retardness of many of these folks was palatable. They wear their "Southerness" as a badge of honor, and woe betide anyone who questions their beliefs. My wife had one particular run-in with a guy from Georgia over COVID and Dr. Fauci, and he was a bloody pilot!

We got some snide comments when saying we came from California (see COVID denier above), and were talking to a couple from Long Island New York who told us when the told some people they were from New York the people walked off and wouldn't talk to them.

We were really getting the feeling it is becoming us against them, and question where this is going.

As recent history has shown, California and New York are not exempt from mass shootings, but as gun wielding states we are not in the same league as those states in the South.

Blimey.

After thirty years living here I really want to leave. I loved America when I was growing up; I teach American literature; I love American comedy, and films, and music (jazz in particular). Almost all my friends are American. And yet, as I get older, I become more and more afraid that I'm living in some modern-day version of Germany in the early 1930s. Maybe I am being completely alarmist. New England doesn't feel very different from how it used to feel. But the country as a whole seems like it's heading toward a very dark place.

Understandable. Sadly the UK, or rather Royal Brexitia as it is now, is little better and we no longer have the right, unlike Johnson's Dad and Farage's kids, to take refuge in 27 other European countries.

Can California ban guns on it’s own?

I live in the Carolina's and you won't find many places without small minded views. Luckily, there are quite a few people not like that, but then there are a lot who are. Most people I get on with around here are usually from somewhere else!

Well, a state would never be able to ban guns outright as that would go straight to the Supreme Court and even if it was a bunch of Biden appointees would get shut down. But California (along with Hawaii) have the strictest gun laws.

Guns used to be illegal is Washington DC but the Supreme Court overturned that ban.

Indeed even in liberal states the direction of gun control is in the wrong direction. Sometime this summer New York is likely to relax its gun laws rather than tighten them thanks to the Supreme Court…

I'll have to try and find the details, but recently California tried to bring in some additional stricter laws about gun ownership, and the California Supreme Court (not the top guys) overturned it.

The problem now would be any US state with even a whiff of a gun sales ban would drive gun sales up 10 fold

Will already take decades of gun amnesties to remove the current weapons

There is no desire for an amnesty. The best we can hope for is a ban, restriction or vetting on assault weapons.
