I've asked this on here before and can't seem to get anyone to answer me. Without searching for the answer, who can tell me what it takes to buy an automatic weapon in the US, and how either the gun control legislation proposed this winter or the assault weapon ban of 1994, effected that?
They did it to end slavery and prohibition ….
There are laws against murder, kidnapping and theft, and yet people still break the law by killing, kidnapping and stealing. Does that mean statutes against murder, kidnapping and theft are pointless? The law doesn't prevent anything, it just sets the bar higher for douchebags, something America has in abundance.
EVERY GODDAMNED TIME WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS WITH YOU, YOU THICK HEADED NUMB SKULL.
Gun ownership is fine. Nobody cares. All citizens who want one should simply need to apply for a license in order to carry them - it works pretty fucking awesome up here. Caught in possession of a firearm without a license? Gun gone, fine administered. Period.
Concealed carry is BS. There should be nobody other than officers of the law who have this right.
Handguns - regulate that shit strictly. Transport unloaded, with the ammunition and gun both separately locked. Caught otherwise? Gun gone, fine administered. Works pretty fucking good up here.
Semi-Auto weapons - No more than 5 bullet capacity at a time. If every company has to abide by this and make magazines and cartridges that can't be modified, the playing field is even and nobody loses business - so don't even try to bring that argument. Don't tell me that it can't be done, either - it can, and they would if that was the only way they could make money.
Well regulated militias - that looks bat shit crazy to the rest of the world, you might as well dismantle this garbage. Those fat tubs of hillbilly won't do a thing against your government anyway.
Storage in home - ammunition and weapons stored locked and separate from each other.
Why is this stuff so tough for you yanks? Why are you so emotionally attached to your guns? You kill 30 000 citizens a year with your lax gun regulation, and spew the same "if everybody had guns it wouldn't happen" illogical garbage out every god damned time somebody questions you. Kids are dying in your streets and you're so fucking focused on your right to look tough with a pistol on your hip that you don't want to do a thing about it. Your nation is fucked because of illogical idiots like you.
It's like every gun toting redneck in the States can't think critically enough to realize that the NRA is funded almost entirely by the gun lobby, and that they put out a message that's pro gun so that manufactures can make a profit on you. It isn't so that you can "rise up" against "tyranny", it's so that Smith and Wesson have an ever increasing growth in business so that their investors stay happy.
God this shit pisses me off.
Guns are useful tools, they just need regulation so that whack job morons on all sides of the political and religious spectrums have a hard time getting a hold of them. You'll note that I didn't say couldn't there - there are outliers in every criminal group, but you would see (as evidenced by EVERY OTHER FIRST WORLD COUNTRY) a drastic decrease in your gun crime rates if you took steps as a nation to responsibly control gun use and ownership.
