No nothing is settled, you just live with your claims.
Questions you have yet to answer:
1. Define “Assault Rifle” without using cosmetic items. Specify what makes a so called “Assault Rifle” unique and more dangerous.
2. QUESTION: How do you intend to get the guns out of the hands of criminals and gangs?
3. Extra Credit: Why are you not concerned about the failure of background checks to stop Hunter Biden from buying a gun? The 4473 asks if you use illegal drugs. Lying on any part of a 4473 is a Federal Crime punishable by 5 years in a federal prions. Yet you and other far left liberals have no concern about public safety when it is Hunter buying a gun illegally and it is well documented he is a serious drug addict.
As I am not a lawyer and it is late Saturday night and the Courthouse is closed, I will just say any warrant must have valid reason and even then it will not permit somebody to enter a home without due process. IE you can’t just kick the door in and inspect.
You have no respect for the military, no respect for the Constitution, and you falsely say things that are simply not true. You depend far too much on emotional rhetoric and thus there is no further need to continue to discuss when you won’t listen or learn to facts.
I know you can not and will not answer this important questions. So with that good night and good bye.
Nearly two out of every three deaths by firearms in the United States are the result of suicide. In cases of suicide, neither gun type nor magazine capacity ultimately matter; moreover, while it is true that the U.S. has a fairly high rate of suicides committed with firearms, our overall suicide rate is relatively unremarkable compared with many countries with much stricter gun-control laws.
Semi-automatic rifles, such as the AR-15, are responsible for only a fraction of 1% of all gun deaths in the U.S. every year, while rifles of any kind account for about 3% of all gun homicides.
And finally, a majority of crimes committed with guns in the U.S. are carried out by individuals who are already prohibited from owning firearms—not by lawful gun owners.
In other words, lawful gun owners in the U.S. are not the problem. Confiscating their rifles and magazines is not a genuine, good-faith policy solution to save lives.
There are, of course, ways to further reduce violent crime and gun-related deaths in the U.S. States can and should, for example, continue to invest in adequate mental-health treatment for their citizens, in stopping the flow of illegal gun trafficking and in ensuring that more law-abiding citizens can defend themselves in more places.
But, if the government wishes to confiscate the guns of peaceable citizens, it should be prepared to find most Americans unwilling to comply—just as they were in 1775.
The database is illegal but even if Joe pushes it through it won’t work. There are too many guns out there not in the database and people will not register them. Nobody knows who has a gun, where they are, or where to look. They do not have the manpower to search for them. Good luck.
IMPORTANT** The American Revolution itself officially ignited over an effort by King George III and his military generals to disarm the colonists; the battles at Lexington and Concord began because the British were coming to seize the colonists’ powder stores and render them defenseless against the armed enforcement of tyrannical laws.
THIS IS WHY Paul Revere, William Dawson rode to worn the people the British were coming! They were coming to arrest Samuel Adams and others AND to seize the guns and powder stored there. Think about how that turned out. Started with the shot Heard Round the World and ended with you and me a Free American citizens.
in fact, after New Jersey banned the civilian possession of standard magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds, an investigation failed to discover a single instance where one of the state’s one million gun owners turned a prohibited magazine in to law enforcement authorities, as the statute required.
… lawfully owned semi-automatic rifles are fundamentally not a driving force behind homicides in this country, or anywhere else.
Moreover, while firearm suicides dropped in Australia after the confiscation effort, there was little meaningful effect on the overall suicide rate. Another evaluation found no effect on homicides or accidental deaths, despite claims to the contrary.
Finally, consider the case of Canada when it tried to implement even the comparatively modest program of mandatory long-gun registration in 1997. The effort was initially slated to cost Canadian taxpayers $2 million. By 2002, however, the estimated cost had skyrocketed to over $1 billion. According to one study, fewer than half of the country’s long guns ended up registered.
Between 1997 and 2012, when the law was repealed, only three murders were committed where the accused person used a long gun registered in his own name under the law. Interestingly, rates of gun violence decreased faster in the United States over the same time period, despite the lack of federal gun-registration requirements.
Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino bluntly stated the reality in 2003: “A law registering firearms has neither deterred [gun homicides] nor helped us solve any of them. None of the guns we know to have been used were registered…. The firearms registry is long on philosophy and short on practical results considering the money could be more effectively used for security against terrorism as well as on a host of other public safety initiatives.”
Here is a little piece on how well Joe’s "Mandatory Buybacks will work (How can the govt buy back something it never owned to begin with?)
First, non-compliance with gun-confiscation laws has been widespread even in countries that don’t protect the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.
Second, Americans are already notoriously non-compliant with strict gun-control measures in states that have enacted them on a smaller scale.
Third, the firearms and magazines that gun-control advocates wish to confiscate simply are not a driving force behind homicides—and America’s lawful gun owners know it. People rarely respond well to being scapegoated, and otherwise law-abiding gun owners aren’t likely to prove an exception to this rule.
New Zealand banned the civilian possession of most semi-automatic rifles. Since the newly banned rifles were not previously subject to registration requirements, it is unclear exactly how many of them were in civilian hands.
Just like America, they don’t know how many are out there or who has them and they don’t know where to look!!!
… it appears that New Zealand managed to disarm only the most law-abiding of its citizens, none of whom posed a threat to public safety in the first place. Meanwhile, those citizens who were already prone to criminal activity continued to break the country’s gun laws. The head of a local gang candidly told reporters that his members would not turn in any of their firearms, because they needed those firearms to perpetuate gang-on-gang violence.
Australia similarly banned the civilian possession of most semi-automatic firearms in 1996, but the country has spent the last two decades trying—and to a significant extent, failing—to enforce it.
You are incorrect about the right of a governmental representative to enter your home without a warrant. It happens every day. When we had home renovations done, an inspector from the Department of codes walked all through our house examining the renovation. At most, putative gun-owners would, as part of their application, agree to annual inspections of how they are storing their guns.
WRONG – The Inspector enters your home with your permission. They cannot enter without your permission. They cannot force the door open. They may wish you had let them in but they cannot enter without permission.
Yes, federal laws supersede state laws, but you didn’t read all I said or you didn’t comprehend. It impact is Biden will be severely limited in resources to search every single home, garage, attic, basement, storage shed, etc. in America. IE it cannot be done.
“Official inspectors from the Bureau of Alcohol, tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives will do the inspections. If necessary (which it won’t be; there is no more craven group of Americans than gun-aholics), <> they will have an escort of U.S. Marshals, local police, state police, or the National Guard.”
Escort will be a little short of people. Local police will not be supporting it. State Police will not be supporting it. National Guard under the command of the Gov will not be called out. The US Marshalls will be it.
“(By the way, President Biden has not proposed this kind of database or these inspections. These are my ideas of how to make our country safer while exercising the Second Amendment responsibility that gun-ownership be well-regulated.)”
LOLOLOL!! Biden is proposing this kind of database and inspections. You don’t seem to keep up with the news on why you oppose. That is exactly their plan to violate our 2nd Amendment.
Who is Greg?
You invented imaginary answers to me and completely FAILED to answer civil and thought provoking questions. Perhaps because liberals see the futility of their actions as they trample people’s rights and refuse to answer the real question with desperately needed answers.
TRY AGAIN. FOCUS! I hope you can do it without using emotional rethoric and instead us logic.
QUESTION: How do you intend to get the guns out of the hands of criminals and gangs?
QUESTION: Why don’t you spend your effort ensuring criminals are put in jail and kept there a long time?
As long as the govt lets illegal entrants into the country and lets criminals out of jail while imprisoning people trying to run a business and make and honest living, the law abiding citizens will need their guns.
Remember – Breaking into this country no more makes you an immigrant than breaking into one’s home makes you a member of the family. (Ought to have the same consequences as breaking into ones home.)
We the People don’t want a registry because inevitably when the govt makes one, the next step is taking the guns away. German, Venezuela, the list goes on and on throughout history.
There is a reason the founding fathers wanted the citizens to have guns. They wrote it in the Declaration of Independence.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Read that last part again – it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
That is why liberals are wrong when they attempt to say the militia spoken of in the 2nd Amendment is the Natl Guard or Reserves. The militia cannot be nad never has been consider that. The militia is what will protect the rights of We the People against a tyrannical govt. A govt that tramples the rights of people though actions such as by passing the established process of a balanced three branches of govt and instead has a dictator issuing “Executive Orders” at in un-precedented numbers.
