Agree but as I said any whiff of a ban or restriction will send gun sales sky high as people load up before the laws are introduced

Further saturation

Dated May 11, 2022:

An appeals court panel ruled on Wednesday that California’s ban on the sale of semiautomatic weapons to adults under the age of 21 violated the right to bear arms found in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

Judge Ryan Nelson, writing for a two-to-one majority in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, struck down a ruling by a federal judge in San Diego that upheld what Judge Nelson called an “almost total ban on semiautomatic” rifles for young adults.

“America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army,” Judge Nelson wrote. “Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms.”

I do not hold to the self defense argument for one simple reason - assault rifles, as the name states, are offensive and not defensive. As evidence, look at all the mass shootings that have occurred in places where highly trained and experienced people have access to the latest weapons - US military bases:

Notably, while in three cases the gunman was eventually stopped by being shot by law enforcement/military personnel, it was only after he had previously shot other le/mp who tried to engage him. Their weapons didn't defend them; nor did the perp's weapon end up defending him. (The 4th guy took his own life.)

Firearms have many legitimate functions but self-defense is bald faced bullshit, plain and simple.

Yes, I'm sure those guys would have loved to have gotten off 200 shots in the time it took to reload their muskets.

All angles of ‘the American people need guns to bring down a tyranny’ argument has gotten progressively weaker over the centuries. Firearms are now far too dangerous to be in the hands of citizens in an everyday sense, but at the same time the gap in power between a civilian guerilla force and a top level military has only widened.

That is a depressing but informative post jtv - thank you. My only knowledge of New England's crime is from Murder, She Wrote and while it's not necessarily a documentary, I don't remember any mass shootings from it.

Does the right to bear arms only mean guns? Javelin missiles, for example. Are they allowed?

The “blue lives matter” gun nuts are going to throw the cops under the bus. They will spin the police incompetence as, “well if the police are too shit to protect them that shows that private citizens need more gun rights!”

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.

Trevor Noah/Jordan Kleeper just reposted this article from a few years ago

6min 21sec - "About one out of every five active shooter events get stopped by a potential victim at the scene, and most of those victims are unarmed." (FBI)

There are some cases where a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun:
7min 01sec - "What's the percent?" "It's about 3%."

Prospect is a liberal thinking journo’s mainly based in Washington if I remember and I did think they had gone bust. I have read their stuff back in the days (circa 2008-10) they used to have a printed version, which you found in airports etc.

They are not far left and I would say they are in between the Lib Dems and Green Party we have here.

Just saw a clip of the idiot speaking at the NRA, not blaming guns but “evil”.
Failing to mention that evil plus guns equals mass death. Evil on its own may be able to kill a few but not large scale.
