  •  Guns are banned in the current USA (1+ / 0-)

    And I say again: many guns ARE BANNED in the USA today.  Indeed, it is probably true that there are many more weapons that you are not allowed to own or use under current US law than weapons that you are allowed to own and use.

    These laws that already ban many guns here in the USA are not a problem for the country; the bans do not result in hoards of dark-skinned evil-doers invading your homes and raping your women; nor are the camo-wearing militia troglodytes crawling out from under their rocks to march on Washington and take over the government.

    The only draw-back of these existing gun bans is that you have less chance to make boom-boom with your hot metal love object.

    As for the democratic or republican party - I could not care less.  Neither party represents my political interests.

    •  No? (0+ / 0-)

      Good thing, but I never took my sis-in-law as a "dark skinned evil doer", I guess I had better take back the shotgun I gave her & her family & quit taking her sons out to the rifle range.
      ......or perhaps you should try joining us in reality instead of your naive little fantasy world.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      •  I guess you do not like your sister-in-law much (1+ / 0-)

        Fun fact to know and tell: residents in a home where there is a gun are twice as likely to die in a gun homicide as residents in a home where there is no gun - and women residing in a home where there is a gun are THREE TIMES more likely to die in a gun homicide than women who live in a home where there is no gun ('cause women get murdered at higher rates by the men in the house and having a gun around makes murder easier).

        I guess you do not like you sister-in-law very much - you gave her a gift of blood and death.

        Another fun/gun fact to know and tell: a gun in the home is seven times more likely to be used to shoot a resident in the home than a non-resident criminal intruder.

        Your thoughtfulness and generosity to your brother's family is a wonder.

        •  Then don't own one. (0+ / 0-)

          You don't think you can handle the responsibility & I am persuaded to agree with you.
          You likely can't.

          However, I will take my sis-in-law's assessment of her responsibility over your admittedly ignorant opinion.

          Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
