We will have to vote all republicans out of office before there will be any change.
All those in favor of relaxing gun restrictions, stay alive! The horrific mass shootings are coming fast enough, there will never be a time to talk about gun control.
Repeal the 2nd. Amendment.
If it isn’t the time to talk about guns, then pull the Republican bill that would legalize silencers, make it harder to regulate armor-piercing bullets and remove several other regulations on guns.
Re-publicans are rabidly pro life until that life conflicts with the vigorous exercise of the 2nd Amendment.
Something must be done. NOW.
GOP and assault rifles are like beef stew. Both give comfort on a cold winter night.
Gun control has little to do with guns, it’s mostly about CONTROL.Just WHAT gun control measure would have in any way prevented the LV massacre?I’ve been a gun owner for 50 years and I’ve never shot anyone. Ditto for 99.9999% of legal gun owners.To quote Indiana Jones: You’re digging in the wrong place!
We do know what doesn’t work:
GOP’er are the first to cry “Mental Health issues” when a non-brown murders a bunch of people. So they should be on board with reopening the mental health centers that Ronald Reagan had closed.
(Which lessened the availability of mental health care and put many homeless on the street.)
The GOP / NRA doesn’t want the CDC to try to determine what the causes of gun deaths are. We should reverse that.
Some will claim “Guns stop murders”. But there is no proof of that. And Tucker Carlson’s The Daily Caller isn’t proof.
At this time, there is no central source of gun crime reports nationwide. We need to create one. FBI? CDC? ATF? are all possibilities. That may aid in finding the causes of gun crime.
End the drug war. We lost. Addiction is a medical issue, not a police matter. All it does now is fund gangs that buy more guns.
Add “ID taggants” to ammo. ID the buyers and limit the amounts of ammo bought.
“Gas Operated’ reloading guns should not be available to the private citizen. SWAT teams at the most.
The patchwork of State laws has failed. Gun control needs to be at the Federal level.
That’s just off the top of my head.
“Thoughts and Prayers”
“It’s too soon to talk about Abortion right after the last Abortion.”
“Now is not the time to talk about Abortion.”
“If they didn’t have doctors, they would just use coat hangers instead!”
The last frame should say, “Too late!”
