The Dick Act of 1902


Thank you, DM. I started this thread, not only because I am for the 2nd amendment, I just wanted both sides to realize how poorly written the "assault weapons" ban of 1994 was and how poorly written the proposed new law would be.
I mean, they both are based mostly on the cosmetic look of the rifles and not the functionality.
I would love to see stronger background checks, but criminals will find a way to get a gun, no matter the law.
Did you know that 25 states allow open carry and that 80% of gun homicides are in the states that don't allow open carry?
What does that mean, I don't know.
If you are in favor of more gun control, tell me why you think new laws will work. I will listen. I would like to see an open, honest discussion.

OK --M--
No "jabs"!
(Can I still use "hooks", "upper-cuts", "round-house"?!?)
Sorry to ruin your evening --M-- !

The insults and belittling hurt every one----the person that receives the cutting remarks--and the sender---no good comes of it----

I'll try to help heal some wounds---if the cuts were not to deep------

Guns don't kill people - people doped up on pharmaceuticals kill people

Guns don't kill people - projectiles do!
(Unless, you're talking about "pistol-whipping" someone.)
I just hit post number 1902 -
Just like the "Dick" Act of 1902.
Talk about "syncronicity"!

He's right. God bless our police officers, but the truth is, they can't be everywhere all the time. They can't know that someone is in your home, threatening your or your children's lives, until someone gets to the phone and dials 911. And even then, it all depends on how far from your house they are until they get there. By then, it may be too late.

The Dick Act of 1902


Just recently, in Arizona, I believe, a 12 year old girl called PD and her mother to say someone was breaking into their house. The perptrator made it through the whole house and to the closet she was hiding in. She fired her mother's gun through the door wounding the perp. Pd and mom got there afterwards and were able to arrest the guy. This is how it should end. i believe the perp carried a knife to the gunfight. I'm foggy on all the details.

Yes, i was real foggy on certain details! http://newsfeed.time.com/2012/10/23/12-year-old-girl-shoots-home-intruder/

Here is a good video in support of gun control, by someone whose very livelihood is threatened by average citizens with guns.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngsKz...&feature=youtu

If you scroll down the page, you'll see a comment that was posted beneath the video by katiemiller...

katiemilker
"I agree, I am in the UK, and were I live, the only ones that have guns are the criminals, they walk around like f***ing kings, scaring the hel* out of people. It's a common threat over here that if you mess with a gangster they will post bullets through your letterbox, basically informing you that they have guns and you don't, that's in itself is enough to terrify people.
Any legal citizen is terrified by even looking at a gun, because having one in your possession is an automatic 14 year jail sentence"

15 minutes is an ideal response time. By the time 911 is called, the 911 operator writes a ticket and it is passed on to the dispatcher. The dispatcher has to dispatch a car. So 15 is what would be quick response!
