    Hmm, the questions should be how both parties are going fight with criminals.
    The gun violence among regular owners is close to 0.

      "Research". You can have your research support any argument you like. It's called rationalization. What I do know is this:
      1. I have lived in multiple countries on multiple continents, and countries where civilians were not allowed to own guns still had gangs with guns, and property crimes were rampant. Gun control hurts good people more than bad.
      2. I do not believe a moment in "common sense" when it comes to gun control. Nothing the anti-gun lobby has proposed addresses the root causes of violence
      3. Suicides ? So what? In many cultures suicides are acceptable (e.g. Japan) and not taboo. If you want to end your life it should be your choice to go on your terms. As such, there are easier ways to go that are less painful and less messy than using a gun. All you need is 5 minutes of searching online

      Simple, economic populism to give everyone who has any interest in working a job, and a good one at that. If we can do this watch gun violence disappear completely

      Is nearly a thousand Americans dying every year to gun accidents close to zero? Toddlers kill more Americans than terrorists every year, what do you think about that?

    The basic ideal of the 2nd amendment plan is to increase the population of non-criminal gun owners, thereby reducing the power that criminal gun owners can exert on the average civil encounter.

      9 guns for every 10 people is great. A lot of individuals own several guns, and serious criminals own a lot of guns. What I want be able to do is walk into a Safeway in Silicon Valley and be relatively confident that several people there are armed. I don't think this is the case right now.

      As far as the wild west goes, I think their main problem was that the infrastructure for public authorities was not great, but I could be totally wrong. That much is certainly not true in modern society. Never thought about or looked into this historical case, so I can't speak or listen with confidence on the subject.

      Target, I do not have evidence, just intuition. At the moment, it seems like there's not a whole lot of consequences for pulling out a criminally obtained gun in public besides when the cops get there a few minutes later. The way to prevent this is certainly not to restrict gun purchases, since this only impacts guns obtained legally.

      Pretty sure your original point was that more armed people will deter criminals from killing people out of fear of being fired back at.

      My historical point is that didn’t work out very well in the early west. Law infrastructure or no law infrastructure. Criminals weren’t afraid engaging other people and regular gun owners often got into confrontations with other gun owners and couldn’t resolve differences peacefully.

      Another thought is how will more armed citizens interact with law enforcement?

      Another thought is the myth of a “hero with a gun”. The gun doesn’t make the man. Most 3rd party observers with a gun won’t even engage someone else with a gun and will instead flee. The stats is only 4% will actually engage.

      Pulling out a gun unnecessarily is called brandishing and is illegal

      Why does one city, in a flyover state, determine why your team cant fix a national problem when your team had full control of our national government from 2016 to 2018?

      Because that shows who's the problem and it's good that people have such an experiment to show the fact.

    How are republicans supposed to reduce gun violence when the vast majority of gun violence occurs in deep blue cities?
    Jul 11 3
    • Nvidia HKCN11
      Probably, from the perspective of a Democrat, they think the supply of guns comes from red country, so gun violence will just disappear if we take away the guns.

      Certainly some opportunity for bipartisan change then, I suppose. We all know how well that goes.

    By letting go free the illegal alien who killed Kate in SF using gun he illegally possess?
    i.e. Kate's Law.

    Elementary school teachers should buy AR-15s on their own expense if they really care about their pupil's safety. Otherwise they should be jailed for jeopardizing children's lives.

      When does this bill that accomplishes that get introduced? What specific laws are not being enforced now?
      Jul 11

    Enforce existing laws. People are going to kill people until the government can control our minds or lock us all in padded cells. Rights being used to kill or hurt others is not justification to take away those rights from everyone.

    Obviously by selling more guns so that people can protect themselves from gun violence.

    There are hundreds of millions of guns in circulation; more than the entire US population. Guns are here to stay. What can be done is to teach gun safety in schools and promote greater gun ownership to ensure that crises can be resolved quickly. After all, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

      I am not an elected official, unfortunately. As far as missing shooting ranges, take a look at far left cities, Seattle is a perfect example. There’s literally no gun shops, no where to buy ammo and of course, no shooting ranges. You have to drive out to the suburbs, which is prohibitive, resulting in poorly trained gun owners therefore a high likelihood that they will miss their target when the time comes.

      Looks like theres a bunch of them here very close by, what am I missing?

      Even if what you said was correct, isn't that just capitalism? Should the government fund and build government run shooting ranges in far left cities that don't have them?
      Jul 11
    • Amazon HPv4yl
      Those ones aren’t in the city; you have to drive outside of Seattle (that big empty space with no pins in your map), which is a hassle, and therefore happens less often.

      No, the government shouldn’t build gun ranges, but local governments shouldn’t be allowed to ban them either.

      Looks like the closest one is 12 minutes via car. Doesn't seem like a huge hassle? What laws should be passed so that far left cities should be forced to open gun ranges in the more reasonable 11 to 0 minutes away from downtown?
