You don't need huge guns and tons of ammo for self-defense.
You need something portable and light.
Concealed handguns used by civilians to stop crimes a dozen times over the last few weeks
Raleigh, North Carolina, April 26, 2018
. . . Jonathan Tyrone Peace, 28, has been charged with common law robbery in connection with the incident Thursday in the 300 block of South Blount Street around 3 p.m., police said. He suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was rushed for medical treatment to WakeMed. . . .
Police said Morgen Matthews, 23, was walking on South Blount Street when Peace tried to rob her. She fired her weapon to stop him from attacking her, police said. She remained on the scene until police arrived, authorities said.
One thing I've never quite worked out from what I've read of US laws:
- are criminals allowed to purchase weapons?
- are the mentally ill allowed to own weapons?
- are domestically violent people allowed to own weapons?
My presumption is that such varies from state to state, but how common is it (ie as a % of states) for the above to purchase/own weapons?
After Democrat Said “F*CK THE NRA”, Tucker Carlson Humiliated Him… Bad
“No, it started a conversation about how embarrassing you are. I mean, how many NRA members have committed mass shootings?” Tucker asked. Davis did not want to go there in front of millions of viewers, so he tried to redirect the conversation by talking about “common sense” things that people want to do in regard to gun control.
Tucker cut him at the knees. “You just released an ad that said F the NRA which I’m sure back at your fraternity house, they love. But, let me ask you an adult question. How many NRA members have committed mass shootings?”
Now you're obfuscating.
Cacarlson and you miss the point
compared to what you need for self-defense in a civilian life, it's too big.
Everything is relative.
Compared to tanks and cannons, an assault riffle is small, but compared to what you need for self-defense in a civilian life, it's too big.
The point was that NRA has produced 0 mass shooters.
NRA turned from a "hunting and gun safety "organization, to a "mini militia support group"
Youre viewpoint is historically incorrect. It seems that All the mass shootings have been perped ever since the NRA turned from a "hunting and gun safety "organization, to a "mini militia support group" thus impeding reasonable gun sales and design controls and shooter controls
Unless you can prove other wise, you would be better served by being against the NSSF, National Sport Shooters Federation, they are the actual gun lobby.
Even here in Australia, we hear of the lobbying by the NRA. And a quick search shows they established their lobbying arm in 1975, and spent a record amount on lobbying in 2017.
That uh, did not make logical sense. Some parts were irrelevant to farmermans point, and the other parts actually seemed to support it, while obviously meaning to be against what he said.
