Who is the confused one here?
I'm not interested in debating your semantics any more.
Carry on.


good response.

Actually, without and FFI, most likely one could not make such an offer. So, from that, we can surmise how the government would act.

I'm speaking of the murder rate,

Here's a whole list of links to support my contention.

Again, guns do not kill people, People kill people.
bingo but they did not remove all guns. only semis and autos. and put in a good registry procedure.

No doubt there are some who need the handholding, but inflicting it on thinking, reasonable adults is not help, it is insulting and an infringement on our freedoms, which includes making choices for ourselves.
the p e o p l e are the g o v e r n m e n t.

Giving over our rights to an oligarchy is tantamount to treason.

The people are not government bureaucrats who think they have the right and authority to tell people how to live. I'm not counting the busybodies one finds everywhere--those who cannot help sticking their noses into other people's businesses.

Who are "they?" You linked to several countries with different laws.

Argue fairly or cease.

And at the ballot box the people have spoken time and time again against draconian laws about guns, abortion, gay marriage, ,,; et al. And your "oligarchy" has overruled them time and time again. On this argument I cannot fathom which position you side. The one that is convenient to your politics, or the one that is convenient to your current postings.

There is a word for this affliction. "HYPOCRACY."

You have heard of this?

The people have spoken on the 2nd amendment. It s sacred and we shouldn't have to vote on it again. After all, enough lives were lost in the original arguments about it. But, me-thinks you would be fine if the "oligarchy" stepped in for "the better good" and took away our right to bear arms.

You know, that "treason" thingy.

The event happened today. Interesting take in the local newscast about it. A black leader pointed out that so far this terrible year in St Louis murder stats, all of the perps have been black, and all but one of the victims was black.

Then they showed footage of the long line of people that came in with weapons and interviewed a few. Several old guys were glad to get "Old useless guns" out of their garages, so nobody used them to commit crimes or murder. said one guy.

The irony was that the crowd shown was about half white.

The police chief and the Mayor called the event a resounding success.

WHAT?

The stated purpose of the gun buy back was to lower the crime rate,
YET,,,;
Not one day allowed to pass much less a month or so to provide proof this lowered the crime rate at all and yet, they are claiming a success. Proving that such liberal footed programs do not need, nor will liberals heed, any evidence or proof to be successful.

Very Telling.
Very Troubling.
Very Sad.

Some the comments below the article are hilarious! Here is a sample:







Anything to get the job done. Better than roving a liquor store cause you're hungry too.
