    Reminds me of the old joke, “The beatings will continue until you cheer up.”

    Actually, public safety would be the province of the dark haired alien. UofChicago indicated that 100,000+ crimes were averted due to the would-be victim having a firearm. Other government stats go as high as 400,000. The day of the Sandy Hook murders, a person tried to do it at the Clackamas Town Center in Oregon, but was stopped by a concealed carry. Only local news carried that one.
    .
    The sad fact is that 8,000+ of 11,000 homicides in the U.S. and 100,000 homicides in Mexico could be eliminated if people gave up their street drugs/party drugs. Gang activity accounts for most homicides. Drug money pays for gangs. When Canada and California legalized, it was a boon for the gangs and cartels, both in the explosion in imports and in the numbers of users. The same will be true for Colorado and Washington, given what happened in Oregon, the Netherlands, Canada, California, the Netherlands, drug zones in Switzerland, etc.

    The public safety people are the ones who want to be in control.

    Not sure why you bring Canada, the Netherlands, and Switzerland into it because they are heavily regulated (yes, know all about Canada’s and Switzerland’s high gun ownership, but that doesn’t change that they are far more regulated than here – nationwide, which is of real importance). And all those countries have a much lower gun death rate than the US.

    Was not the ACLU, was the Republican Party and its endless cutting of the mental-health budget. Thanks, Grover Norquist!

    Guess you could say that the ray-gun control folks are up in arms and shootin’ off their mouths . . . ☻
    .
    And when anyone uses a gun to comit a crime, they are not apt to follow the gun laws anyway, and more laws won’t change that. . . .
    I would rather have a gun and not need it than not have one and be in a situation where it would be useful . . . ☺

    How often does anyone find themselves in a situation where a gun is needed ? In all my years I can honestly say never. A gun used for its intended purpose is designed to maim & kill. I’m all in favor of it being used for hunting & skeet shooting but used for protection against who ? The boogeyman ? All too often guns get stolen or a child gets it with horrific results mishandling of the firearm.

    Drug gangs wouldn’t be a problem if totalitarian statists would stop trying to ignore market forces, and respect peoples’ right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Legalization HURTS drug gangs, rather than helps them.

    Doesn’t matter what side of the issue I’m on . . . you’ll never convince me and I’ll never convince you.

    That is absolutely false. States and cities with strict gun control laws have higher gun violence rates than those that do not. England has seen gun violence- along with ALL violent crime- SKYROCKET since banning guns. Brazil has strict gun control laws, yet vastly higher rates of gun crime than the US. Switzerland and Israel also have much lower rates of gun crime, despite very high rates of gun ownership. The bottom line is that, in ACTUAL REALITY, there is no correlation between strict gun control and less gun crime. You have to be completely insane to believe that people are safer when they are disarmed and defenseless.

    Guns are routinely used as a defense against robbers, burglars, muggers, etc. They have been used to stop mass shootings. And, of course, the MAIN reason we have the Second Amendment is to allow us to defend ourselves against a tyrannical, despotic government like the one we have now.
