Another feel-good worthless proposal.
So are we to believe that somehow a gun that is open-carried is more of a "safety risk" than a concealed gun? This is nonsense at face-value.
"Gunsucker". "Drip" and "Dripbag". "pants-creaming". "Penile Entities". "Gun Boner".
And these are just from "JCM's" 1st post.
Guess that's sums up what type of intellect--such as it is--we're dealing with here...
There ought to be a train, for commuters, but 6 million won't do it! And the airport needs better service.
Everywhere in Europe with the exception of a few small countries—the Czech Republic and Bosnia-Herzegovina—to carry a loaded gun in a public place is a crime. Most of the public space of Europe is a gun-free zone. And the result?
Death from attacks (murder) in developed countries is NOWHERE worse than in the United States—300% of Canada's murder rate, 400% of Australia's murder rate, 450% of the murder rates on Great Britain and in France, 600% of the murder rates in Germany, and so on—not because attacks here are more frequent—they're not—but because guns are so much more deadly than other weapons and in America attackers so frequently use guns. If an attacker uses a gun instead of some other weapon the person or persons under attack are MUCH more likely to die.
Of every three who die from attacks in America two die from gunshot wounds, of four in Canada one only, of fifty on Great Britain three only. Where officers report to the FBI the type of gun after a death from gunshot wounds from an attack nine times of ten it's a handgun. Most Europeans think of guns as something for hunting or sport (target shooting) NOT "self-defense." They do not give everyone access to handguns.
You have only to look at the police. Every American officer has a gun. Last year FIFTY died from gunshot wounds. On ordinary patrol on Great Britain police officers DON'T HAVE GUNS. In 2013 one only died from an attack. Someone ran over him.
If a situation on Great Britain requires officers with guns a police supervisor can call in a team trained in guns but on Great Britain gunfire from officers is rare. Among sixty-four million inhabitants in 2013 officers fired guns in three situations only—and no one died—the year before in one situation only (and no one died). Among eighty million in Germany in 2011 officers fired 85 gunshots only and all but 36 were warning shots.
Death from gunshot wounds from gunfire of officers on Great Britain runs about three a year, in Germany seven a year, in Canada twelve a year, in the United States a THOUSAND a year.
Someone dies from gunshot wounds from an attack in the United States about once an hour, on Great Britain once a week. A year has 52 weeks, 8,760 hours.
About eighteen times as many die from gunshot wounds from gunfire of American POLICE OFFICERS as from gunfire of British murderers.
Gunsuckers are SO easy to take down using reason and logic. They love to get all grim-faced and huffy and spout florid "patriotic" prose, and tell me I'll be SO glad someday when a gunsucker Saves The Day. But they've got nothing. Nothing at all. Nothing ANYWHERE, and not THERE, either.
And then there's the whole "if you let us carry we can stop a mass shooting, yes we can, we can we can, yes we can can can!!!"
Except that guy who actually HAD a weapon on him chose to stand down and wait for law enforcement. That's because he wasn't STUPID.
But his gun? USELESS.
The other kind of gunsucker is STUPID. He charges in, guns blazing, and gets himself killed like that one guy did in a mall shooting. Got shot dead himself. That's because he was a stupid gunsucker with fap fantasies about being on TV as a
Gun Hero. Stupid.
Either way, a private gun getting all damp while resting under your immense omentum (look it up, drips) didn't do anybody any good, did it?
Meanwhile, go on killing about 4,000 people in gun homicides a year over stupid stuff like "romantic triangle" "argument over money or property" "unspecified argument" "unknown reason" "alcohol-fueled" "drug-fueled." And there are more people killed for the latter reason than there are youth- and criminal-gang gun murders COMBINED. So just stuff that little falsehood back into that rectal area where you get the rest of your crap.
Another stupid lying gunsucker tried to claim that an armed private civilian stopped "200 possible mass shootings" and posted a link to the FBI.
That's what stupid drooling gunsucker always do--post a link and think that proves anything. That's because they're STUPID.
But the actual link? It only says that there were 200 legitimate "defensive gun uses" (DGUs) in a given year. Not "200 possible mass shootings stopped by an armed civilian.
Gunsuckers are such LIARS. Like the lie that "where there are more CCW permits, there's less crime.
Well, sure, dripbags. That's because MOST CCW permits go to older white males living in rural areas with LOW crime. Yup, your gun sure does keep them raging rogue elly-phants out of my little town of Dirty Burlap, Arkansas, yeppers, it sure does.
And states with the loosest gun laws have the highest rates of gun homicides. That's another statistic that only gunsuckers fail to see. Stupid squirts.
One stupid gunsucking mouthbreather tried to post how many times an armed civilian stopped a crime.
Wow, he had all of NINE. Wow. NINE times.
And the stupid drip had to go back TWENTY years to find NINE events.
Can you do math, you dicklimp gunsucking morAns? That's fewer than HALF A CRIME PER YEAR.
And that was a GUNSUCKER posting that with so much stupid ass-brained pride.
"Packsa9"--stupid drip. You're statistically more likely to shoot your stupid gunsucking SELF, a family member, or someone else than you are to do the pants-creaming DGU you fantasize about every night between your aromatic bedsheets.
Only 200 legitimate DGUs a year, according to the FBI. And almost 2,000 gun homicides over "unspecified argument" (one of half a dozen non-DGU non-crime gun homicide "reasons").
Wanna know how many mass shootings have been stopped in progress by an armed civilian? ZERO, dripbag. You guys are so intoxicated by your Penile Entities you can't even use reason and logic. It's not even a religion--it's like the salivary fascination you have for some bimbo whom your buddies tell you is Trouble. No one can reason with your Gun Boner.
Maybe the money could be spent to build a train from Colorado Springs that connects to the Denver/RTD system in Lonetree. Then you could take the train to DIA,which will be open next year.
Few liberal voices here, and the ratio of "Likes" to "Dislikes" is telling, esp. for a "progressive" publication; I guess when a topic is overwhelmingly sensible, there isn't much to dispute.
"The only people who have the real desire to open carry are the exact people I'd be worried about having guns"
And the only people who'd desire to limit the legal, legislated rights of others are the exact people that compel multitudes to stand up for their individual, personal choices.
Q: Do you truly believe that each of us should be able to choose what we do, and when and where we do it?
"People who open carry weapons in the city have one of two goals: They're out to shoot someone, or they're out to intimidate everyone"
Ms. DeGras, there is a third potential goal: to let others know that they won't become easy targets, and that displays of violence with be met with equal and perhaps superior force.
Q: How many times has someone carrying openly discharged their weapon without provocation?
Acting as if those that choose to exert their rights in this fashion are somehow the "problem" is an egregious misrepresentation of factuality.
Again; don't wish to carry openly? Then don't, but please don't tell others how to conduct themselves, or does 'freedom of choice" only apply to issues and circumstances you personally approve of?
meanwhile Mizzou is telling their fearful college kids to arm themselves... http://www.trevorloudon.com/2015/11/rampin…
Murray needs to go...
The only people who have the real desire to open carry are the exact people I'd be worried about having guns.
I stand with Bill Murray. People who open carry weapons in the city have one of two goals: They're out to shoot someone, or they're out to intimidate everyone.
Interesting...and telling...how the first two incidents cited didn't involve the discharge of any firearms and that those carrying were well within their legal rights to do so.
I thought Bill Murray was always a top-notch comedian, but it's obvious he's now just a hack trying to gin-up a non-existent issue for exposure.
"Murray noted that minutes, and even seconds, can make a difference between life and death"
Indeed, which is why self-armament is an personal, individual option we all deserve to be accorded, as when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.
It's pretty simple: Don't want to own a gun and/or carry it openly? Then don't, it's certainly your prerogative, but please don't attempt to dictate my behavior and choice(s) on the matter.
After all, if liberals are for "free choice" in marriage, abortion, drug usage, etc. then why would they limit the options of their fellow citizens in this instance? (no need to answer, we all know that such liberty ends when it's a topic/item wherein they disagree with private ownership).
If he thinks one of the most basic right: the right to keep and bear arm is a privilege then nothing is a right. Its pretty simple he hates freedom and should be voted out.
Rocky - To be precise, the gun didn't do any damage either. Just like the gas can. It was what a deranged murderer chose to do with it that did the damage. Like the gas can, the gun was sitting in some closet or garage until the deranged murderer decided he wanted to kill someone.
It was sheer luck the fire didn't do more harm than the shooting spree. You ignore the fire because it didn't kill anyone. Plus, there's no anti-gun hysteria to gin up talking about the fire.
There has to be a compromise somewhere a solid plan to get gas cans out of the hands of idiots!
Or, maybe we just we recognize that murderers and the deranged are going to do bad things with whatever they get their hands on. Too bad you completely missed that message in my post.
