Many in Nation Tired of Explaining Things to Idiots

I agree with everything stated but it doesn't change my opinion on firearms.

Laws in the UK, Japan, Australia clearly reduce gun deaths. I wouldn't label them so much as gun control as gun bans though. (if we are getting into the smaller measures seen in the US, then there is room for debate).

Would they work in the US? I'd say 50/50 chance with enough time (50+ years). Given what happened in the 1920s, I'm not convinced that Americans would follow the laws. I'm not convinced that police would enforce the laws in many areas. For instance, New Yorkers are by in large ignoring the new SAFE act laws. If there is American exceptionalism its our identity as scofflaws.

At the end of the day, what other countries have done, infringes upon the rights this country has protected for me (not given....protected.)

And I would agree with your statements. I don't think that Americans will follow the law if guns are somehow banned. I don't even think that is a remote possibility, changing the law to ban guns. I really doubt that current gun laws do much to curb gun violence either.

I think it's a shame that we have so much gun carnage in this country and the solution is for gun owners to respect the dangers that they pose, including but not limited to the fact that owning a gun increases the risk rather than making the gun owner safer. I hope down the road more people freely choose not to own a gun or rid themselves of the guns they own. And if they opt to take the risk, they do so with careful respect for the choice they are making.

I do support laws that increase the penalties for misuse, negligence and so on though.

maybe there would be more funsies if'n things were explained to the idiots plus their parents, simultaneously. That's my hope for today, however malformed it may be.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
