The CNN and Gallop polls quoted is standard leftist agenda on how to frame the question.
Some form of gun control, (um ok, id/criminal background check.) Versus No control at all.
What would be your answer?
What is it about Americans and their guns ?
If you even have to ask this question, Mr. Mayor, (or anybody else) you have absolutely no idea about how America works.
I recommend that he move to Lagos, Nigeria. They could use his money.
Hey Bloomers! One word. FREEEEEEDOM! Google it you moron!
Gun control is like trying to solve drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to own cars.
>>> There are an estimated 270 million guns in the hands of civilians in the United States, making Americans the most heavily armed people in the world per capita.
They (the author) say it like this is really a bad thing.
Why is gun control the only fundamental right to be repeatedly threatened and maligned? You do not hear anyone advocating the repeal of women’s suffrage, or wanting to reinstate slavery, why is the 2nd Amendement the exception?
I imagine the same is true for the tens of millions of other lawful gun owners.
Leftists must be pretty damn stupid not to understand that.
” those guns shoot more than 100,000 people a year. “
Oh yeah, right. Sounds like someone just made up a nice, large, round number.
Outside of Detroit, DC, New Orleans etc... gun crime is relatively low.
Looks like Hizzoner quit pouring through the statistics before discovering how many of that thirty-thousand were serious miscreants who were permanently stopped in the midst of the commission of some bad behavior.
At least, he kept the information to himself if he did come across it.
You never hear them complain about the Swiss. Now why is that?
Goals for pro-gunners to obtain in the next ten years
National Constitutional carry.
Common legal ownership of full-auto firearms just like Switzerland.
Yeah, that Freedom is a stubborn problem over here.
Oh, and does Mr. Bloomberg recall a little problem that occurred over in Norway a short while back, when, oh, 6 and a half times as many people were murdered?
What a dumbass bitch Bloomberg is.
I hope the left tries to make gun control an issue this November. If they do, they will get bitch slapped back into the Reconstruction era.
For one, CNN doesn't know what the "whole world" thinks.
Two, for CNN to say the "whole world" thinks that, even while aknowledging that gun-owning Americans oviously don't think that, makes the CNN writer a liar or at bst illogical.
Three, it doesn't matter what the "whole world" thinks, or even what "part of the world" thinks, because our rights do not come from "the world."
Four, "ordinary" people do not use guns for grotesque purposes. "Ordinary" people know their guns are for stopping people who intend to do "grotesque" things, or for stopping elitists who intend to do grotesque things to our rights.
Five : The reason this "world" they are talking about associates ordinary Americans with using guns for grotesque purposes is the media. It's the same world which ties itself in knots trying to avoid associating muslims with using guns, and bombs, and machetes, and whatever for grotesque purposes.
Six: How come the people who claim carrying an ID to prove you are eligible to vote is a terrible thing and a violation of human rights, are the same people who think every law abiding citizen who owns a gun should be fingerprinted, eye-scanned, microchipped, ear-tagged, papered, photographed, tracked, put on a reservation without access to talk radio, and forced to attend sensitivity training?
