Of course it won’t, but, never fear, the two NY stalwarts, Bloomberg/Cuomo have offered confiscation as a solution.
It is essentially impossible for an a private individual to legally own a gun in Mexico, but the level of gun related deaths is very high and increasing. Gun control did not work in that country.
Similar thing happened in Great Britain, gun related violence spiked 40% after the citizens were forced to turn in their weapons. The trend has continued upward and other violent crimes have increased as well.
We have some property 70 miles from the Texas/Mexico border. Illegal aliens have been observed on our property as have their makeshift camping areas. Our government has armed the drug cartels in Mexico with some 2500 “assault weapons,” and has refused to defend the border with Mexico.
How long before one of those “assault weapons” shows up on our property? How are we to defend against them with inferior weapons?
In our case, the closest police officer is about an hour’s drive away, and never did respond when we called about a theft.
I grieve for the innocent children in Connecticut. I do not want my innocent grandchildren and great-grandchildren to suffer a similar slaughter on our own property.
Last time I checked, it was still illegal to kill people. Those laws don’t seem to have much of an effect either.
Go back 110 years. Harry Tracy broke out of the penitentiary and on his last run he killed 11 men,
His weapon? A 30-30 Winchester and a slow Colt .45 six shot revolver.
No assault rifles involved.
Tell me again how banning semi auto rifles will stop killings. It is what is in the mind of the killer.
Of course not.
Gun ban will not cure achne either, or small pox.
Totally unrelated concepts. No cause and effect.
Change the subject.
NRA! Get off your well funded ass and DO something!
A killer could have done as much or more damage in Newtown with a nine-round pump 12 ga loaded with OO buck than he did with a .223 AR. Reloading from a pocket full of shotgun shells would have taken seconds and the devastation of a shotgun blast would gave been just as horrible if not somehow worse.
The grabbers will simply say that’s why we need to go straight to full-scale confiscation.
PLEEEEEAAAASSSE . . . . . . . . . . . . !!
STOP confusing the ignorant sheeple with FACTS!!!
(They can’t deal with it!)
Note to Fox News. We already know an ‘assault weapons’ is no guarantee that shootings would decrease.
CT is one of the states that currently has an ‘assault weapons’ ban.
It protected exactly no one.
Lazar is the product of liberal policies. Mental health facilities were shut down and deemed inhumain and not condusive to a mentally ill youngsters mental development so they were medicated dumped into the “outpatient” school system where they did not fit in became more isolated which turned to frustration and then violence. We hear nothing but ban all guns when no one is talking about the governments role in metal health as well as completely ignoring the security issues put upon school administrators who are inexperienced in the security equipment and programs needed to handle these kinds of attacks. Was the mother at fault on many levels, yes! but to blame it just on guns as the fix all to the next massacre is stupidity on the highest level
