    Just keep the wands out of criminal wizards’ hands, and things’ll be JUST fine!

    That’s not what N.W.A. means around here.

    re: cessna

    not particularly. Having lost two cousins to felons who were not even supposed to have firearms (like the law matters to felons), I don’t understand the idea of making for more victims by limiting guns to those who prey on the rest of us. If gun control had ever worked anywhere it was done, I might be more sympathetic to it, but it’s invariably a prelude to takeover or to prevent the public from stopping some evil. China, Russia, Germany, Italy, etc. History repeats itself.
    .

    It’s an old idea. In medieval times feudal lords forbade swords to the public so that they could do evil without worrying about being stopped. So, people made pole arms when conditions became unendurable.They were so successful that armies like the Swiss adopted them. The Philistines, after conquering part of Israel, forbade blacksmithing so that Israel would be unarmed.
    .
    1 Samuel 13:19-23 “19 Now no blacksmith could be found in all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, “Otherwise the Hebrews will make [p]swords or spears.” 20 So all Israel went down to the Philistines, each to sharpen his plowshare, his mattock, his axe, and his hoe. 21 The charge was [q]two-thirds of a shekel for the plowshares, the mattocks, the forks, and the axes, and to fix the hoes. 22 So it came about on the day of battle that neither sword nor spear was found in the hands of any of the people who were with Saul and Jonathan, but they were found with Saul and his son Jonathan. 23 And the garrison of the Philistines went out to the pass of Michmash.”
    .
    VP Biden alluded to “revolution” about two weeks ago. In the last 4 years we’ve had one Democrat official after another speak of “socialist revolution”, “we need a revolution”, and so on. Scary stuff.

    It’s when you also decide to keep them out of the psychotic wizards hands that you run into problems…

    The Wild West days are over guys.. Get with the civilized country concept. That isn’t perfect either but you do end up with a lot less dead people.

    The only thing that can stop a bad wizard with a wand is a good wizard with a wand!

    You apparently live in a big city. The Wild West is alive and well. It takes a deputy sheriff over 2 hours to “respond” to my place….so I must defend myself.

    The NRA was started in 1871 because the Democrats of the day were attempting to bar freed slaves and others from possession of firearms.

    @ Nabuquduriuzhur

    Check out the statistics for people injured or killed each year from legally owned firearms. I agree with you in principle. “When guns are illegal only criminals will own guns” but the accidental fatality numbers are scary.

    Gun control IS completely ineffective for keeping it out of the hands of criminals but it should be effective at keeping it out of the hands of law-abiding idiots who can’t practice Gun Safety. IMO the best option for keeping it out of the hands of criminals is to make the laws so any crime committed with a gun automatically receives the maximum possible sentence, and has 3 times the wait before any possibility of parole. That won’t stop, or even slow down, criminals using them but it will make it longer before they get out to use them again.

    Statistics show that a family with a wand in the house is more likely to be injured or killed by a wand than people who do not own wands
