    Sums it up nicely. Just how many bullets DO you need to stop a deer? Should we be indulging the inaccurate? I think not!

    It doesn’t matter what kind of legal sanctions people may put on firearms, there will be people out there that may use them illegally.

    And if I find out that I can own and have a “suitcase nuke” out there—doesn’t matter if it is legal or illegal that I can own one—that I can carry around like a briefcase and detonate somewhere, guess what?

    I’m going to want that weapon in my arsenal, so that I can use it when I need to.

    As much as we would like everybody out there to follow the laws set forth, not everybody is going to do that.

    And even if there are laws out there limiting clip size and the number of bullets in the magazine, it isn’t going to matter whether or not the person that obtained their magazine illegally will use theirs.

    We made our choices, both legally and illegally.

    And choice is what this will all boil down to.

    1st step towards totalitarianism is to get guns off the hands of everday people. Don’t fall for it America. Tell ’em if they want our weapons, they can get the bullet first.

    Keeping a couple AR-15’s away from nuts isn’t NEARLY as important as keeping large capacity magazines for MAC 10’s, Uzi, Glock, Smith and Wesson, Ruger, and other short barrel weapons from “gang bangers”, 7/11 robbers, and others who use these “semi-auto”, but AUTO-LOADING firearms! Also, civilians do NOT have a legitimate reason for body armor or “bullet -proof” vests, unless their occupations place them in a more “hazardous” environment, like guards, couriers (like diamonds etc) or bodyguards. Gang-bangers and bank robbers shouldn’t have the easy access they do.

    Yes, the “assault weapon” ban IS totally overblown, as most folks out there don’t even know what the TRULY dangerous weapons on our streets are! Another hint: they are NOT legitimate hunting weapons, either rifle, or shotguns.(Yes some states DO authorize hunting with pistols.)

    Drunks or druggies behind the wheels of cars and large trucks.
    Texting teenagers.
    Distracted drivers on cell phones or just plain distracted.
    The murder rate is quite low when compared to those numbers. In my own outfit over 85 percent that have been killed were in car wrecks either their fault or others.
    When I worked the road I was more worried about being hit by a car than shot. Greater odds to be hit by a car.

    The last accident I was in, my pickup skidded on black ice, threw me into the guardrail, and back into I-295 where I was hit head on by a Greyhound bus doing 65mph. I walked away uninjured because of government mandated safety standards (break-away pins, airbags, seatbelt). Forty years earlier I would have been a fatality or seriously injured.
    In the last forty years, how have guns become less lethal? What mandates put in place to protect us from accidents or shooters? Cars are used as an example here all the time, but the number of fatalities is markedly less because of government regulation. Yet we fight every move to put even the slightest hint of oversight on guns.

    Of course, by “deer”, I mean non-believer, and by “gun”, I mean totalitarian authority. Technically, totalitarian authority is perfectly usable to convert non-conforming ideologies to red meat just as well as one might with a deer-stalker hat, a meershcaum pipe and pure, cold logic. Eh, Holmes? One might question why anybody actually “needs” a totalitarian authority, but since they have that as part of their divine right to rule the lesser hearts and minds, there’s no good asking. The game is afoot!

    Ezra Klein is one of my favorite msnbc analysts.
    His look alike, Chris Hayes, takes over The Ed Show time slot tonight.

    “1st step towards totalitarianism is to get guns off the hands of everday people. "

    The first step toward totalitarianism is to completely misdirect people with bogus issues, like making them think having an AR-15 with 30 round clips is a vital part of their safety, while you pass laws like the Patriot Act.

    Gee, and the gun nuts keep hoping we’ll forget all about this stuff. Too bad!

    Universal background checks on ALL gun sales. Make high caliber semi-automatics available only to those who have gone through training & a more thorough background check. Make high capacity magazines available only to those with a demonstrated need. We already do this with fully automatic weapons & you don’t see them getting into the hands of criminals or crazies very often.

    Uh, pumping 6-9 rounds into a clerk at 7/11 with a stolen Glock, or Mac 10 may be “nuts”, but criminals committing armed robbery, with no regard for human life, aren’t considered “insane”, even if the robbery does only net $7.46 from the register.

    Apples to apples, compare the number of people killed by random nuts or other criminals with semi-automatic weapons to the number killed by oppressive totalitarian governments. Though, I must admit that oppressive totalitarian governments are much more efficient, much neater and clean up after themselves better. Random criminals and crazies hardly ever take the time to construct mass graves or corpse factories. Manson might be an exception, with his lime pits at the Spahn Ranch, but he had dreams of being a world leader.

    I see 12 people in that cartoon, that if any of them had exercised their right to carry a weapon for their protection could have stopped the damage. On the other hand, any one of them might have also stopped at their favorite pub for a few “silver bullets” and driven home drunk, striking a tour bus along the way, killing some folks… or running over a group of kids standing on the sidewalk… or been an abortion doctor heading home after a day of legalized killings.

    Umm… Ruff… the Giarandoni Air Rifle, capable of firing 30 rounds per minute with the same effectiveness of a modern day .45 ACP, was invented in 1779… a full 12 years before the 2nd Amendment was ratified. Lewis and Clark carried one of these rifles with them on their expedition out west. The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with muzzle loaders or deer hunting. Your logic would dictate that the 1st Amendment would only protect hand written letters since the internet, cell phones and texting could have never been envisioned by the Founding Fathers. What an old, tired, misguided argument you present. Stop it.
