There is a proposal in New York that would force gun buyers to turn over three years of social media posts to be looked at before you could buy.
You heard me
You guys do realize that Trump has signed more gun control measures in 22 months than Obama did in 8 years.
Somebody should take his Phone , and Pen from him , And i know where they can hide them ..
Oregon has vote by mail only, allowing lazy uninformed people to vote. I'd like to go back to actual polling places where only people that truly care and make the effort will vote. Paper trails instead of electronic voting. We needed to show our drivers license as I recall to prove that we weren't Russian.
Yeah well my residence is well documented that i am a valid voter for early voting. So kiss it.
Wish I could see your Flicker stuff Ern. My up and string don't like it.
So the killer broke the following laws, listed in terms of severity:
1) Law against murder
2) Law against carrying a concealed firearm without a permit (which is basically illegal in much of California)
3) Law against bringing a firearm into a bar/establishment that serves alcohol
4) Law against "high capacity" magazines (specific state law)
Once someone is willing to break # 1... what do they care about the other laws?
1) Universal background checks
2) Gun registration requirements
3) Gun confiscation laws
4) A 10-day waiting period on gun purchases
5) An “assault weapons” ban
6) A one gun-per-month limit on handgun purchases
7) A minimum firearm purchase age of 21
8) A ban on campus carry
9) A “good cause” restriction for concealed carry
10) Controls on the purchase of ammunition
I know what would have prevented this... another law!
Wonder why? Too many pics to load?
I don't know. I haven't put anything on my Flicker page for years. I think way back in the stone age they limited the size of images. It worked back then. At some point it changed and they added more bells and whistles that my cup and string don't like.
While I was surfing, your Flicker page showed up. Hmmmmm.
Nice stuff by the way. Are those phone photos or a camera?
Mostly phone photos. My old digital camera i used for inspections is not even close to the quality of my phone camera.
I did buy a nice camera for vacations but i can transfer images so much easier with my phone vs camera. And i dont want to drag around another camera.
The MEDIA has also changed in the last 50 years creating a CULTURE of FEAR in many Americans. Violent crime has trended way down in that time frame, yet the Media wants to make you think the world is ending so you watch their sensationalist LIES. Watch the parents line up at the bus stop protecting their kids from everything in the cars until the bus comes, or better yet just driving them to school. Is it too dangerous out there to let them stand outside for a few minutes?
Just like the rise in illegal immigrants FOX uses.
The debate over gun control can be summed up thusly: Those of us who don't like guns in the hands of our non-costumed brethren, will vote to ensure men with guns, under the guise of the "law," will come and take the property that is rightfully yours, killing you should you resist our will sufficiently.
This is what we call "violence by-proxy" and makes the voter for violence no less culpable in the extortion and death that will ensue.
As Stefan Molyneux correctly observed; if a person claims they are non-violent and are for “gun control” they are not truly anti-gun nor are they non-violent people - because the reality is that guns and violence will be needed to disarm innocent law abiding people.
This is because those people who claim they are anti-gun and anti-violence, who claim to support “gun control,” will need the credible threat of police violence and the police’s guns to take away other people’s guns should they resist the attempt to further centralize their monopoly on violence.
So those who claim to be anti-gun and anti-violence are really very pro-gun and very pro-violence. They ultimately believe that only government officials (which are of course portrayed as reliable, honest, moral, and virtuous) should be allowed to have guns. This obviously flies in the face of reality as the 20th century has proven once and for all.
It’s important to note that those who advocate this type of centralized monopoly of violence do so as cowards, because it’s not their lives
on the line, rather they advocate others using violence on their behalf in
order to force their misguided views on innocent people who wish to do nothing other than protect themselves and other innocents.
There is no such thing as "gun control," there is only centralizing gun ownership in the hands of a small, political class and the forces they control which, as recent history has proven is a murderous nightmare for the peace loving, disenfranchised, and disarmed citizenry.--Ron Danielowski
The media claims 307 mass shootings this year. The FBI says 168 in the history of the U.S. Of course this is the same media that listed a window on a school bus shot with a BB gun as a school shooting.
Trump Just Told Lawmakers: "Take The Guns First, Go Through Due Process Second"
President Trump also said authorities should have confiscated firearms from the Florida school shooter, "whether they had a right to or not."
The biggest problem with gun laws are that they inevitably create criminals out of law abiding people, while doing nothing to stop criminals from committing acts of violence. Is there anything remotely violent, or inherently dangerous in a law abiding citizen merely possessing a particular type of firearm, or certain capacity magazine? Absolutely not. Are there laws that make this a crime, when no other offense has occurred? Absolutely. Gun laws are arbitrary in nature, and do not prevent criminals from committing crimes. These laws are only followed by those who would never commit crime in the first place, and ignored by criminals.
Gun laws do nothing but restrict law abiding citizens, making them less safe, while protecting criminals, by making sure they are more well armed than their potential next victim
