Raising the age and creating a waiting period are bad, very bad. Trade those for better background checks.
Democrats weren’t as bad as people feared just decades ago.
Now look where we are.
Drip, drip, drip, Socialism...
Drip, drip, drip, Communism...
Bumo stocks are out, but how about binary triggers? They seem more useful to me anyway.
how on earth is it legitimate to take away 2nd amendment right from 18-21 year olds? It can’t be.
How did people go along with this?
Government answer is always worse than the problem because it never solves the original problem and screws everybody else. I really hate government. I equally hate the defects of society (most of whom are liberals).
Waiting periods are the dumbest thing. I mean, they’re not even a big deal to me, but it’s just dumbfounding that Democrats thinks making someone wait 72 hours to buy a gun is saving anyone anywhere’s life.
How does raising the minimum age from 18 to 21 help address school shootings when the last shooter was 17?
This country treats people like babies for way too long.
so the Governor is running for the Senate huh??..with that age restriction, he can kiss the pan handle bye bye....dumb ass.
Much of it is meaningless posturing.
Don’t be surprised if it is fought in the courts.
Frankly, I think the age should be raised, along with the voting age!
Yea, like 18 olds were really going to vote GOP.
[[ Give law enforcement more authority to seize weapons and ammunition from those deemed mentally unfit or otherwise a threat;]]
Deemed unfit by whom? Courts? Police? Neighbors?
Also of note was this wording: “Or otherwise a threat”? As determined by who? ex wives? Jilted lovers? people that hate you? courts? Who will be judging just who is and who isn’t a supposed ‘threat’?
<>How did people go along with this?<>
They submit to passion rather than reason.
And no more guns in gun free zones!!
It's still bad. ANY new gun control is bad.
