Ban assault weapons! Ban high capacity assault magazines! Ban handguns! Ban suicide!
Banners gonna ban.
Whaddya mean, “Thoughts?”
When Bloomberg does or says anything that I agree with I’ll let you know. He’s an industrial strength douche canoe.
Does his limo have a bumper sticker that read “powered by douche?”
So… requiring background checks cuts TOTAL suicide rates in half? In 2009 51% of all suicides were committed with a firearm. So apparently if the government knows you have a gun there is no way you can possibly, mathematically, kill yourself with it. I think SOMEONE is pulling statistics out of their ass to make the people think background checks are a good idea, and using fake/altered/misrepresented suicide statistics is MESSED UP.
“Gun show loophole”. Again, when I buy a firearm on the internet, it is shipped to an FFL dealer, who makes me sit there for 5 minutes to complete a background check.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences. — C.S Lewis
That is in my signature on all of my gun forum profiles. Great quote.
