Some dumbass I know on facebook just posted this stupid thing. I think we should just go over this and point out why each of these items is just plain idiotic.
The top part is dominated by the argument “laws only effect people who follow them. criminals don’t follow laws duuurrr”. I don’t know how anyone can make this argument with a straight face. Since criminals don’t follow laws we should just get rid of all laws right? Its not like the criminals will follow them! Even if they get guns by stealing or buying them illegally the laws are there so we can prosecute offenders and make it more difficult for them to get the guns in the first place.
Stealing guns is a whole other hilarious issue. Having to steal a gun would put another road block in the criminal’s path on their road to murder. And you gun nut’s are always going on about how you can use your guns to stop crime right? I guess you are just shitty at that as well.
As for background checks, again it will make it more difficult for criminals to get their guns easily. And I’m sick of all these stupid conspiracy theories that the government is going to use these laws to keep guns from ordinary non-criminals. You can still buy your over priced phallic extentions, it just might take you a little longer to get it. And remember kids, patience is a virtue.
Gun show loopholes are in fact a thing. I know people, several in fact, who have bought guns from gun shows with no background check whatsoever. The laws for this vary state by state and the majority of them do not require a background check for “private gun sales”. It is also very telling that if you google gun show loophole myth the vast majority of the websites with “information” and “proof” that the gunshow loophole isn’t true are all right wing, gun nut, libertarian, conspiracy , shit websites. Another quick googling of these so called facts on these website prove the majority of them half truths or outright lies. Who’s drinking the koolaid now?
The reason they are going after assault rifles seens to be pretty obvious to any sane person. We would like to take the “mass” out of mass shootings. I would like to live in a world where I don’t see headlines that say 10-30 people killed by gun toting psycho. Also thanks for pointing out that the majority of homocides are caused by handguns. That is good evidence that those should be more heavily regulated as well. Thanks for doing the research for us.
Maybe next time you guys want to sway people to your draconian and pointless opinions maybe you should actually use arguments that make sense.
