    If more sheeple were willing to die at the hands of a home invader, things would be better, right?

    Why do you live in a place where home invasions happen?

    I ask: If more sheeple were willing to die at the hands of a fellow home dweller, things would be better, right?

    Throw every gun on the planet into an arc furnace and melt them and use the steel for light rail for urban and suburban rapid transit.

    Missing the point again, eh? Let me explain it for you: The NRA says “enforce the laws,” while at the same time lobbying to make the laws unenforceable. Sneaky trick.

    Chicago has the strictest gun laws of any city in the USA and they also have the highest rate of gun violence than any city in the USA because criminals in Chicago illegally have guns shipped into Chicago.

    Chicago needs to arrest those who bring guns into Chicago from other areas

    @masterskrain

    Why has Obama failed to nominate an ATF Director?

    @Tigger

    Where is your proof that what you are saying is correct?

    President Obama’s nomination of B. Todd Jones to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive is an effort to energize a depleted agency that has been denied leadership and resources by legislators aligned with the gun lobby, according to administration officials and former law enforcement officials.
    .
    .For the past six years, the Senate has not confirmed the nominees for ATF director by Obama or President George W. Bush. In the first case, individual Republican senators have placed a hold on the nomination.

    The ATF has overreached and abused its authority in the past. The ATF has been punished for these abuses to a point it is almost totally useless as a law enforcement agency. The gov’t should be using the lessons learned from past abuses. It should also be using the lessons learned from impairing the ATF’s ability to enforce the “laws already on the books.”
    ^
    A relatively short search on the internet will show how lobbyists have helped draft legislation that keeps the present day ATF from doing its job. These same lobbyists are actively working to keep a new director from being chosen until a ‘friendlier’ environment exists to install a director who is friendlier to gun and ammo manufacturers; one who places less emphasis on law and more on profits.
    ^
    92% of people polled want 100% background checks. This is the least that should be done. If a car is given to an adult child as a gift, the title has to be transferred. If a dog is purchased in my city, it has to be registered and an id tag is issued. Why should a legitimate gun owner not have to title their guns and that title be transferred as ownership changes? If a person owns guns, why is it wrong to show the weapons are secure from casual theft? If a car is stolen, why wouldn’t an owner not call the police, and why shouldn’t the same be required for the theft of a gun?
    ^
    This forum has seen many essays on these matters, but the point of the cartoon simply addresses the inherent hypocrisy of telling Americans that if the ATF would just do their job we wouldn’t need to go through all of this. Until a dedicated director of the ATF is in place, and the hobbles removed from the ATF’s ability to do their job, talking about how many laws are already on the books makes as much sense as funding an agency that has nearly no power to function.
    Notice in this cartoon, the shooter doesn’t even have to look in order to hit his target. The ATF is just that easy to knock down.
    Respectfully,

    Whenever anyone on the right feels the threat of the “evil” ATF preying on their precious, precious guns, just bring out the Waco fuckup.
