But that implies that everyone is out to kill someone with the gun they're buying. Why should all citizens be assumed to be killers just because they want a gun? What if people actually need the gun quickly?

And where did I say that? You and PS have an ability to stretch things.

Why do you assume that a background check is because of assumed killers? What about convicted felons who aren't allowed to own guns or even handle them?

Night Strike wrote:What if people actually need the gun quickly?


If you need a gun that quickly the police might be a better option. I would think that part of a cooling off period would prevent someone who had an argument from running out and buying a gun and confronting the person they had an argument with. Possibly preventing a murder.

No, you assumed everyone needs a cool down period to buying a gun, which is where the implication that everyone wants to kill comes from, not the background check.

Or, the cooling down time will prevent a woman who has a stalker from protecting herself when he finally decides to do more than stalk the next night, which means it could cause a murder rather than prevent one. We can't have a police officer at our side 24/7 to protect us.

No I did not assume everyone needs a cooling down period. Run out, buy a gun, go confront the person you had a fight with and try to intimidate them.

If my daughter had a stalker I would have her stay with me or I would stay at her place. The most important thing is to get out of that situation at that time. Stay at a friends house. Friends are amazing in troubled times. And call the cops.

Now I will do one of your tricks here. The stalking victim goes out, buys a gun and accidentally shoots herself when she loads the gun after getting home. Now we have a accidental shooting that could result in the stalking victims death.

Here is a start.

http://wap.nytimes.com/blogs/nocera/201 ... rom=nocera


NS if you want to post details of those who defend themselves then you should provide it.

And just for the record I am not in favor of taking guns away from citizens. I just think there should background checks and cooling off periods before someone walks out with a gun.


we can add NASCAR racer Dick trickle to this list suicide by gun. guns for hunting I support that's about all. Guns for all this self defense is what I call "white peoples fear",this same fear is why a Afro-american president is so unacceptable for them.

Racist much? Besides, if you want to look at the true victims of most gun violence, it's black people who live in the same big cities that ban their citizens from owning guns. Why are you against black people protecting themselves?

Why are you in favor of as many dead Americans as possible from gun violence? Australia eliminated guns,mass shootings decreased to zero.They were averaging one a year.

disingenuous and idiotic...notice I said CONSERVATIVES. Everyone knows the democratic party flipped with the republican party and those racists in the democratic party became Dixiecrats then eventually republicans. example Strom Thurmond. You think Abe Lincoln would be a Republican today? dream on.ever heard of Richard Nixons southern strategy to win the White House? or Reagan announcing he was running for president the first time at a state fair in the same county were those civil rights workers were killed and declaring "I believe in states rights" code word for if your state wants to be racist I am all for it.Bush the first and the Willie Horton ad.Showing a menacing afro-american being released from jail. This played into the "white peoples fear" bias. The guy who made that ad for Bush apologized on his death bed about how unfair and biased it was.The republican party only knows how to win one way,Scare the voters.play to the white vote.

Another interesting observation.

Background checks wouldn't even pass this community as being effective.

This is why fast & furious happened. Drug Cartels send agents here to buy weapons at trade shows where they don't have to be subjected to a background check. Why should you assume everyone who wants to buy a gun is even a citizen? Al Qaeda tells it's followers how to buy guns in the US. The Cartels actively buy weapons here every day.

I like the sound of this! A New 'Smart Rifle' Decides When To Shoot And Rarely Misses

...It's called the TrackingPoint rifle. On a firing range just outside Austin in the city of Liberty Hill, a novice shooter holds one and takes aim at a target 500 yards away. Normally it takes years of practice to hit something at that distance. But this shooter nails it on the first try.

The rifle's scope features a sophisticated . The shooter locks a laser on the target by pushing a small button by the trigger. It's like a video game. But here's where it's different: You pull the trigger but the gun decides when to shoot. It fires only when the weapon has been pointed in exactly the right place, taking into account dozens of variables, including wind, shake and distance to the target.

The rifle has a built-in laser range finder, a ballistics computer and a Wi-Fi transmitter to stream live video and audio to a nearby iPad. Every shot is recorded so it can be replayed, or posted to YouTube or Facebook.

...

"It has a password protection on the scope. When a user stores it, he can password protect the scope that takes the advanced functionality out. So the gun will still operate as a firearm itself, but you cannot do the tag/track/exact, the long range, the technology-driven precision-guided firearm piece without entering that pass code,"

But that implies that everyone is out to kill someone with the gun they're buying. Why should all citizens be assumed to be killers just because they want a gun? What if people actually need the gun quickly?


It doesn't imply or assume any such thing.

And if someone legitimately "needs a gun that quickly", then I would suggest they should instead head for the local police station.

Completely off-topic, but holy shit what a name. Is that his original parentally-given name?

wow! yeah, just tell the criminal to hold on while you get your shoes on and grab your car keys...but don't tell the burglar/rapist you are going to the police station. Tell them you are going for a stroll

So the person has time to run to Wal-Mart to buy a gun, but not time to run to a police station? You don't seem to have thought your argument through, as usual.

By the way, aren't I foed? Wanting to hit the Baker's Dozen, are you?
