Criminals are NOT going to observe Gun laws. The way the underground gun market is, its only a question do you have enough cash for one.
You know why the automatic Minigun is still legal, it cost thousands of dollars in Ammo to shoot one for a few minutes, only the super rich can even afford one.
There also only 11 ever made for civilian use.
You know who has the strictest gun laws in the western Hemisphere, Mexico. Only legal sellers, buyers and traders of arms and ammunition is the Mexican Federal government, and it’s handled by their military.
How much gun crime Mexico still sees? Mexico makes our Vegas Shooting looks like a slow tuesday.
A co-worker of my wife was there, and shot 3 times. Apparently shes in a medically induced coma, was shot in her jaw and her liver. She works at one of the local high schools as ASB director, I’ve met her plenty of times doing school events. Hoping she pulls through.
You are being willfully obtuse. Keep it up and back to ignore you go.
You used a tired and constantly debunked idea that stricter laws don’t mean better gun control. Those laws would work IF your neighbor didn’t provide a steady supply of firearms with little government oversight.
Let’s even put this in context within the US. Those cities conservatives hate so much because of tight gun control? They are always brought into the spotlight when it comes to gun crime, but they never mention where those guns come from. Here’s a hint: they don’t actually come from the city. It’s the neighboring states, with lax to no gun control laws, who sell it to someone and get them brought over.
I’ve brought this up maybe 15 times in the last year, but apparently no one wants to listen if it goes against everything they understand of the world.
What do you mean? Hotels don’t have metal detectors. Although I’m sure when I go to Mandalay Bay next year I’m gonna have to go through a battery of security checkpoints.
Also, hotels, by law IIRC, cannot have cameras in their hallways due to privacy reasons. So really all he had to do was put it into a suitcase and since there are thousands of people checking into hotels in Vegas a day, who is going to look at one guy?
It’s worth noting the guy was felling people from 400+ yards out. Like… Even shooting from elevation how does a civilian have a gun with that kind of firerate, range and ammo capacity. It just defies belief honestly.
And you are being fucking Obtuse to think any amount of legislation is going to do shit. You are no fucking better than white old church ladies that scream “think of the children”.
Half the Gun laws now in this country, going from state to state aren’t even enforced.
I am from Maryland, a blue state, with the only places more democratic than Maryland being California and Vermont.
Yet most of the guns laws on the books is for fucking show. They are meaningless because they aren’t enforced or enforced well.
And it not just in good old blue states, but everywhere.
Also the United states have how many fucking undocumented guns, more than the Government will ever admit. On top of the the grandfather clause no amount of legislation is going to magically clean up all the guns.
What needs to change is a fundamental idea and culture of guns in our society, and I for one do not see that happening in my lifetime.
You can scream legislation all you want, but in the end you are just as worthless as those old church ladies who are just as out of touch with the world.
Gotta do something tho. Cant just let people get shot up every 6 months and just roll with it. Like you said we arent changing the culture in any way we will feel in our lifetime, but what we can do is start to change the laws
