Thank you.

 


Thoughts on gun control on 4/14/2018 2:37:12 AM

My point is that it is not difficult to illegally obtain guns.  

There are certain drugs that are entirely illegal.  People still use them.

Other drugs are legal in some cases but not in others.  The people who get them with a prescription sell them to those that cannot.  Why would guns would be different?

 

The Bill of Rights does not tell us what rights we are given by the federal government.  It tells us what rights may never be taken away.

 

Others have pointed out that decreased gun homicides does not equal decreased total homicide.  I would like to add that the countries often brought up in gun-control discussions are in a very different geographical situation than the United States.

The U.S. is not an island nation and has thousands of miles of undersecured border.

Ditto on the government thing.

In the United States at least, banning any specific type of gun or guns in general is unrealistic.

Nothing can completely stop people from buying guns, and if someone wants to kill someone, they won't stop to worry about going to prison for illegal gun possession.  

I understand many supporters of gun-control were raised in a different environment with a different attitude toward guns.  To them, guns are for associated with gangs and other criminal activity, but there are many others for whom guns are a positive thing associated with protection and recreation.

It's rather humorous how many of my ancestors from one side of the family got kicked out of where they lived-- usually for religious reasons, but I'm also descended from Rollo.

This one is my favorite so far.

One of my ancestors was a Huguenot minister who was killed by Indians in Nova Scotia.

Another was kicked out of Plymouth colony.

I've already started it, and I plan on reviewing it once I read the mutineer path.

I can say in advance that unless I come across pages of random numbers, the rating will be high.  :)

I cannot say that I ever have.

Yes, I have read "Through Time."
