Why is rape and murder illegal? I mean criminals do it anyway right? Right? RIGHT?


Murder is too which didn't stop the shooters so how would gun laws?

As for mag size you can change a mag pretty quick doubt it would've had a massive impact. High caps will be grandfathered again making everyone look for the millions of preban mags making the only thing accomplished is a price increase for preban mags. This was attempted from 1994 to 2004(i think around there) it did nothing.

"Can you say with certainty that there would not have been as much damage if the Aurora shooter was only able to get 10 round magazines instead of the 100 round he used?"

Please watch this video for my reply.....

He obtained these things legally because they were legal. Exactly. My point is making it illegal isn't going to stop him from getting the exact same gun/magazines and doing the exact same thing.

"more than 900 Americans have been killed by guns."

NO THEY HAVEN'T!

Those people were killed by, people."

You are splitting hairs, but I do agree. Allow me to rephrase that.

"more than 900 Americans have been killed WITH guns."

Does that make you feel better?

It's amazing. Now you guys are attacking the very principle of laws and law enforcement. So there's no point in having streetlights because bad drivers won't follow them?

vague and fail to address any of the actual issues that caused the debate in the first place. also murder was and still is a crime, yet social issues that lead to it are completely ignored.

by "hurt" I mean added expense. (Come on, there is no way the cost isn't going to go up from added background checks and what not).

Because wackos go on shooting sprees doesn't mean everyone who owns guns are bad too.

"Criminals do not follow the laws."

The Aurora shooter followed the laws and obtained all his ammunition legally. OK? So stop saying that.

"these laws aren't going to change the bad things, it's just going to hurt those who do follow laws."

Well let's look at recent events.

The Aurora shooter obtained his guns and ammo legally. So, assuming he would have behaved the same, had these laws been in action he would have only had 10 round magazines instead of 100.

The Sandy Hook shooter got his guns from his mother who obtained them legally. So, assuming he would have behaved the same, had these laws been in action she and then he would not have had the AR 15 (if this law bans that).

Right?

I do agree that 100 rounds compared to 10 is not necessary (for this example), but making it law isn't going to stop those who want to do evil. Criminals do not follow the laws.

In summary, spend half a billion dollars with the result that you have not kept one person safe from gun violence.

Good Job POTUS!

"During his announcement, Obama stated that in the month since the massacre in Newtown, more than 900 Americans have been killed by guns."

NO THEY HAVEN'T!

Those people were killed by, people. How many were crimes? How many were justifiable self defense?

Why does the media let him get away with this crap?!?!?!

"my point is, these laws aren't going to change the bad things, it's just going to hurt those who do follow laws."

This is a vague statement that you need to explain. Why exactly would universal background checks and anti-trafficking measures hurt law-abiding citizens?

"Won't do a thing."

Can you say with certainty that there would not have been as much damage if the Aurora shooter was only able to get 10 round magazines instead of the 100 round he used? He purchased all the magazines legally.

"because criminals wont do anything illegal"

EXCELLENT POINT. That is what I keep saying.

"Oh good. I feel safer. There will be no more school shootings after these laws are set in place, because criminals wont do anything illegal."

Why don't you move somewhere that has no laws at all, if they are so pointless?

Requiring criminal background checks on all gun sales, including private sales
Banning "military-style" assault weapons
Limiting ammunition magazines to 10 rounds
Strengthening penalties for gun trafficking

Seems reasonable to me. Let the debate begin.

Will items before this repeat of 1994 be grandfathered? Does this overide NYs ridiculous laws of 7 rounds?
