“You. Can’t. Get. Rid. Of. Guns.”
You can certainly get rid of high-powered ones. There are almost no machine guns floating around civilian America, are there? AR-15s are legal. There are about 5 million of them. Full machine guns are illegal. There are almost none.
And look at all those suburbanites with grenades.
“actually a ban on automatics is unconstitutional. "
According to whom?
Bonaventure’s Life of Francis says that when Francis was praying before a crucifix, he heard a voice three times say “Francis, go and repair my house which, as you see, is falling into ruin.”
" as you are denying gun owners the right to own guns, which is in the bill of rights. "
It doesn’t say “guns” it says “arms.” And yet, there are all KINDS of restrictions of weapons, and nobody calls then unconstitutional.
Switchblades are banned nationwide. A pocket knife that opens with a spring, But it violates the Constitution to ban a weapon that can be easily modified to fire 600 rounds a minute?
“It’s our bill of rights, I have the right to own a gun, get over it.”
The 2nd Amendment has NEVER been interpreted as meaning that anyone can have unrestricted access to any and all weapons. NEVER.
“(because fully automatic weapons have been unavailable to the general public since the ban of 1986)”
Why isn’t that a violation of the 2nd Amendment?
How come a ban on semi-automatics is CLEARLY unconstitutional when a ban on automatics isn’t?
“do you think a gun is going to walk out of that gun store and go to the school and start shooting?”
No one has ever claimed that guns have agency. Enough with that stupid straw man.
Guns make it FAR easier for people who want to kill people.
When a weapon is banned, the supply dries up, simply because gun shops stop selling them.
Why don’t these mass killers use grenades? Because they can’t get a ahold of grenades. They’re illegal. So you can’t just buy one in a gun shop. And there’s no real black market for weapons of mass murder.
And background checks ONLY apply to licensed gun shops. If I am a legal gun owner, I can sell my AR-15 to a stranger in a parking lot, no questions asked, completely legally. That’s CRAZY.
In fact, if someone is on the terrorist watch list, they not only can still buy an AR-15, they can buy 20 of them and give 19 to their friends. Completely legally. That’s CRAZY.
If a gun shop has a gun stolen, they are NOT required to report it to the police, even though they KNOW it is now in the hands of criminal. That’s CRAZY.
And an AR-15 serves NO purpose for a civilian except that it’s fun to fire at the shooting range. Well, fun doesn’t cut it. People are buying high-powered weapons and murdering with them so you can have fun.
The insistence that we can do NOTHING to keeps guns out of the hands of people who should not have them is INSANE.
It would also not be Pentecostal Faith Assembly Church. Pentecostalism started in 1906.
I assume the first thing they do is map out a plot. It would be odd to make it up as you go along.
