And 11 teens die a day while texting and driving. Time to ban cars. Oh you need a license? Yeah not everyone follows this rule. Lots of people don't even have insurance of their cars.

What a terrible comparison to make. 

 

However thanks to texting increasing accidents on the road self driving cars are on the horizon so even then your point is moot.

When guns are as necessary to modern life as cars that might make some sense. Let me know when you can ride your pistol to school. 

And they were at a time. The same people that call all cops racist are the same ones now defending the deputies that waited outside the school and did nothing. 300 million guns in America. You can ban them but it won't do anything. Especially when you have the FBI miss clear and obvious signs with the shooter.

Self driving cars have a long way still and even than the first few years you will have accidents. And than probably a few pile ups. Technology is great until it isnt. Planned Parenthood kills to. Where's the overwhelming outcry over that? How much money do they make? Like I said I'm for stricter gun laws yet people already don't follow them even for simple shit. Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws and yet death is pretty high there.

keep picking and choosing your battles.

Good. American society is clearly not ready for so-called gun "rights". Best to reduce them to gun privileges like just about the rest of the developed world.

 

 

 

Anybody who thinks that the liberal-democratic state should disarm the common man is not a socialist in my eyes.

Baby steps.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Anyone who thinks making guns illegal in the US would be a good thing is clueless to the much of the country.

It would not go well. If you are from any of the say flyover states, you know what I'm talking about. Gun owners are not handing over their guns.

But well see how these dropping of NRA stuff works. The same people I see on facebook non stop posting links showing NFL ratings down and such are the same people are all gun owners. I hope Delta and others are prepared for some loss of revenue.

Also the NRA is just a organization. I don't think out of any of my friends that own guns that any of them have ever mentioned the NRA. I doubt they care about them at all. They only care about their gun rights. There doesn't have to be an NRA for them to keep their 2nd amendment rights.

 

edit: also how many people int he military do you know, or retired military people? I can't think of a single one I know that didn't grow up with guns, or has them now in their house. Also the vast majority of those I know are form rural areas, not the big cities. You know the areas that are hugely against these laws. So I wouldn't count on the military members being supporters of gun laws. if they were forced to confiscate guns from Americans, they would be confiscating them from their family/friends.

...but why should anyone aspire to be a socialist? given all the harm they've caused throughout human history?

Keep in mind that the NFL didn't see a ratings drop because of ridiculous things like the right protesting them and making a difference. The ratings are dropping thanks to the riseof streaming, awful officiating, and because it seems like the Patriots will never go away. 

 

The extreme right wing nutcases are just trying to take credit. Delta and US Airlines will be fine.
