Another interesting observation.

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

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?


Should all dogs be assumed to be dangerous until proven otherwise?

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,"

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?


Evil Semp wrote: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.

That is as plausible as this comment by you.

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.

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?

far more people are killed without a gun than with a gun. You think that just because someone does not have or cannot get a gun, they aren't going to kill someone?

The police don't hand out or sell guns for personal protection. And it's highly doubtful they'll send an officer to be someone's personal security for a while.
