I live in California. Guns are not confiscated. I own several. My buddy owns a gun shop. People can go in there and buy guns.Yes I agree that we need to work on prevention. But I also don’t believe in the slippery slope that ends in confiscation. Regulations do save lives and make our communities safer. That should be admitted by all and not denied. We need to be smart about how and what we regulate while maintaining a fair balance of public safety and personal freedom.Nice qualifier... throw a “frivolous” in there so you can hide from the fact that regulation does save lives. How about you show some objectivity and lay out which non frivolous gun laws do save lives. Then maybe we can move forward with a rational discussionFrivolous gun control laws like universal background checks don’t save any lives... In fact they have nothing to do with firearms they have always been about control
The problem with the word regulation and the way we use it today, it is a shy way of saying National Gun Registration. Prevention is the real answer.
We know who is going to commit acts of violence. Intervene and help them before they destroy their lives... and the lives of others. Let's help them while they're young. Let's start by getting rid of America's drug culture.
The slippery slope always ends in confiscation....you can't name one place where they registered guns where they didn't latter come back and confiscate them.....Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Canada, New York, California, Venezuela.........
You guys live under the protection of the 2nd Amendment, the work of the NRA, Gun Owners of America and the 2nd Amendment Foundation....it's like saying that we don't have to worry about war anymore because no one has attacked us since 9/11.
This is a war of attrition....you have all of the major democrat presidential candidates declaring they support mandatory gun buyback, assault weapon bans and confiscation along the lines of the Australian model.....if you think they are joking, you are delusional...if you think they will stop at AR-15 rifles, you don't understand their openness about banning all semi-automatic weapons....that would mean all rifles, pistols and shotguns as well as revolvers that fire one shot per pull of the trigger....and if you think they don't mean that, that they only want "assault rifles," you are delusional.
