That is not accurate.And after the big ban in Australia violent crime, including violent crime committed with a gun, went up.
Interesting to see the absence of mass shooting deaths the year after 9/11. National unity and a focus on something bigger than ourselves was high that year.
Please explain how it would lower the death toll.Whether we like it or not, the generation who grew up afraid of being shot to death in their classroom will soon be leading this country and things will change in a big way.
I don't have a problem with AR-style weapon and high-capacity magazine bans. Will it stop mass shootings? No. Will it lower the death toll? Yes. Will it have any affect on my ability to overthrow a tyrannical government? Absolutely not.
This is the stupidest idea that has surfaced in our national discourse...Arming every teacher and employee is not working.
I agree with this statement 100%. I am a teacher who is very comfortable around guns but I am not a cop, a military trained person, or a threat negotiator. Expecting teachers to perform these types of initiatives without training is asinineThis is the stupidest idea that has surfaced in our national discourse...
The Parkland resource officer is being sued for not charging into a hail of bullets and you expect Mr. Brown the 70 year old 3rd grade teacher who has never even seen a gun in real life and never even had a verbal argument with someone to all of a sudden fighting some kid with an AR to the death... and like she's making 35k.
Could not agree more.Lack of HUMANE human connection, IMO, is the root cause of all of this. Just think about any dysfunctional family that you know of. Is there HUMANE human connection in that family. Probably not.
That is not accurate.
"Violent crime is generally defined as including the offence categories of homicide, assault, sexual assault and robbery (both armed and unarmed).The hell it isn't accurate. Do not turn my words to fit your agenda. I said "violent crime" and you point to a bunch of graphs showing homicides only. And the homicide rate also went up, after the gun ban, until around 2001 with the exception of one year. Violent crimes, including assault, robbery, rape and murder have gone up with the exception of homicide.
The second amendment was written at a time before any of the non-violent protest movements had occurred.legislating, with the intent to appease, is a poor argument, as well as direction to take.
I would rather take my chances in a free society than live in a police state.
Now we are getting closer to the core of the matter. This is a cultural collapse, a destruction of the American way of life. It isn't just games and movies. Our humanities have changed. How about music espousing violence, a generation of the poor growing up without fathers. Can you name a single famous painter who is still living? How about an American who is writing a book today that will be studied in 150 years? Life has become cheap in America, as it is in many third world countries.The effects of violent Video games, The effect of violent movies, The war on christianity and family values.
