    The problem is gun control is not the solution to the problem. Never has been. Never will be. Some people, however, are so afraid of guns that they refuse to actually think about the problem and the solution to the problem because the perceived problem allows them to pretend their irrational fear justifies trampling the rights of others.

    The problem is society is producing people who do not value human life. Taking away a tool by which people can hurt other people won’t fix anything, especially since the person out to commit a crime isn’t going to follow the law in the first place. Criminals will just find another tool. This isn’t theory. It has been proven time and time again. The UK and Australia both banned guns for all intents and purposes. Crime rates and murders in both those countries went up, not down.

    Despite all this, there will forever be those that think the answer lies in more gun control or the banning of guns. These poor, delusional souls are beyond reason as they refuse to deal with the truth when it is so much easier to blame the object of their phobia.

    Perhaps one day the cowardly GOP and NRA will allow the ATF to have computers to track stolen guns and will allow gun violence statistics to be correlated.

    Perhaps one day the lefties will get that it’s not the gun, it’s the retard that pulls the trigger. It’s a hard concept, I know, but try to keep up.

    And this is exactly what I am talking about. A low information gun control nut who has no clue what he is talking about. A gun registry for legal guns is not allowed under law. Tracking stolen guns is perfectly legal. I am curious what you actually think a database of stolen guns gain you? Does it stop violence? Nope. Can the ATF correlate gun violence statistics as they relate to stolen guns? Of course they can. Again, what does it gain you? Nothing.

    Also, why do you differentiate between gun violence and violence as though there is a difference? Do you honestly believe that if you stop all gun violence that violence will somehow stop as well? Doesn’t work that way here in the real world.

    Australia collected their guns, and have had no further mass gun slaughters simnnce, and reduced crime! That action was done by a Conservative Australian government by the way. Gun worshippers hate facts! www.motherjones.com/politics/2015/04/true-cost-of-gun-violence-in-america

    Ahab, nice try, but spouting propaganda won’t get you very far. First off, mass shootings is a miniscule percentage of overall violence. Second, you are lying your butt off when you claim there have been no further mass gun slaughters in Australia when there have been two. The overall number of mass murders didn’t go down either. The people just turned to stabbing, arson and blunt objects. Google Australia List of Massacres and read the Wiki list.

    As for crime, yes, you liberals love to play with your numbers and try to pretend you’re smart. You’re not. The total elimination of guns has done almost nothing for the percentage of murders done with handguns. In 95 the number was 20%. Now it is 18%. BTW, crime in the US has gone down at a faster rate than Australia since 96, which doesn’t say much for your lame claims, does it. If you can claim the drop in crime in Australia is because of removing guns, can I claim the drop in crime here in the US is due to more guns? I think I just heard some liberal minds exploding.

    One more thing since you want to try and play the moral high ground of being concerned for lives. The CDC claims that between 200K and 3M crimes are stopped every year because of guns. It is unknown how many overall lives it has saved, but it doesn’t take a genius to see guns save lives. If you really were a decent human being and concerned about lives instead of just a gun hating nut, you would be honest and deal with the number of lives saved by the very guns you want to remove. Can’t have it both ways, chuckles!

    I’ve cared for gunshot victims and their families, have you?

    Lives saved by guns…none…30,000 annual gun deaths in the U.S with over 90,000-disabling gun related injuries annually is nothing to crow about except for gun worshippers!

    @rallsolo

    So what are the GOP and NRA so afraid of to let the ATF do its job?

    Your cns news source has been debunked by the PEW report, and you’ve misrepresented the finding of the cdc report!

    You think you are smart? Gary Kleck’s defensive use of gun studies are flawed and full of errors. vacps.org/public-policy/the-contradictions-of-kleck
