    It's the opinion of millions, if not the majority

    I already said they're not legislated properly. I never said they weren't legislated :hmmm:
    There are around 60 million registered republicans in the USA. Guess what they think about gun laws in the USA?

    It's irrelevant anyway. Just because an opinion is shared by the masses it doesn't make it right.

    That, plus the need for robust background checks / firearms licenses for those who own them.

    And the outlawing of concealed carry, with or without a permit.
    No. I disagree with background checks!
    Those are futile gestures at pretending to "tackle the issue."

    How can you background check an illegal or smuggled or stolen gun :hmmm:?

    You lost me at "I already have." Where did you provide any evidence? :lolwut:

    Again I asked which sources you find credible.

    Most people who advocate gun control do so because they believe it lowers the crime rate. In fact, just the opposite is true. Violent crime (rape, robbery, and homicide) decrease dramatically when states pass laws that permit peaceful citizens to carry concealed weapons.One famous example: in 1966 and 1967 Orlando, Florida police responded to a rape epidemic with a highly-publicized program to train 2,500 women in the use of firearms. Orlando became the only city with a population over 100,000 which showed a decrease in crime. Rape, aggravated assault, and burglary were reduced by 90%, 25%, and 24% respectively — without a single woman ever firing a shot in self-defense.Criminals are looking for an easy mark and avoid those who might be armed. Anyone who doubts this might wish to put a sign on their front lawn saying “This house is a gun-free zone” to experience the consequences firsthand.Gun control is actually “victim disarmament.” It exposes the weakest among us — women, children, and the elderly — to greater risk of attack. It denies us the ability to defend ourselves against those who would harm us.Since the courts have ruled that the police have no obligation to protect an individual citizen from attack, we have no legal recourse if they fail to do so.Acting in self-defense, armed citizens kill more criminals each year than police do, yet shoot only one-tenth as many innocent people by mistake. Clearly, armed citizens act as responsibly (if not more so) than trained law enforcers.

    People like you are annoying. Just answer the question or don't click on the thread
    1. Interesting to note that you've done exactly the same. Where's your answer?

    2. Check my first post in the thread, I did answer it - it's a complex question and the the simplistic answer OP wants is pointless. A ban won't work.

    On that leg, we can say the same about those 60 mil Repubs who oppose modification of gun laws

    I feel people on here don't understand Federal constitutions and legislature...and state constitutions and legislature.

    The gun laws can chirp all they want about formalities.

    But if the state law like Georgia says their citizens can do a,b,c...that's that. And the gov't can be sued for breaching civil rights.

    So those 60 mil Repubs whether that's the actual number or not, are preventing obvious resolutions from happening.

    Also Republicans and Conservatives are not the same.

    Again you are blatantly dodging the question.

    Which sources do you find credible? You're not answering because if I find a source that says Stand Your Ground was used (don't worry I will), you'll look even dumber than usual.

    do you think guns should be banned in America?
    Well there's no chance of that happening and regardless, whilst a gun ban might improve the situation it definitely wouldn't solve the problem because it's just as much a social problem as it is an availability problem.

    No clue what you're even trying to say m8. Stop jabbering on and make a point. If it's that it's lawful for the US government to ban guns - it's not. The constitution is the highest form of law in the USA.

    It's too late for a ban to be effective. There are hundreds of millions of handguns, shotguns, rifles, assault rifles in the country - a ban wouldn't change that.
    Personally I would call for a ban anyway. It's not like it can hurt - every gun that isn't sold is one that will not be used to kill someone. The guns that are already on the market will go on killing people, but the ones that are banned out won't.

    Yes, it only does more harm than good, there are too many people dying for no reason in the states.

    Even if all new firearms were subject to tighter restrictions, it would take at least a generation - if not two - for it to have an appreciable impact, IMO.

    You have no idea "m8?" Never read something more true than that, you don't have any idea what you're talking about, do you lol

    "The Constitution?"

    LOL Like I said

    THE Constitution...is Federal.

    Federal is, the national government's laws and rights.


    STATE law...is the state...law. How hard is that to understand? :hmmm:

    And there are...STATE LAWS...that circumvent
    Federal law.
    Which prevents
    the amendment...
    of the general
    gun laws.

    An example

    would be

    The State of Georgia
    creating a law that states
    they can legally display
    firearms
    and use them
    if they feel it's necessary


    and the national Government
    can not
    deny them
    that right.

    It's called
    state
    sovereignty.

    Got it?

    Do you know what the 2nd amendment of the USA and the NRA are.

    You're not a genius coming up with a gun ban right now

    Everyone wants to do that.
    They simply cannot.

    You can't. But that doesn't mean restrictions on the legal ownership of guns shouldn't be tightened.

    Just realised you didn't make any kind of sense here, and that is clearly what I was not saying.
    Do you even understand words?
    Also again you're wrong. The Constitution is not the highest and final form of law, smarty.
