Captain Picard Facepalm Meme | RESTRICTING GUNS VIOLATES THE SECOND AMENDMENT BUT RESTRICTING AMMO IS BETTER ALTERNATIVE | image tagged in memes,captain picard facepalm | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I hate to say this, but people should be allowed to own all kinds of weapons. Being able to fire them is another matter. Don't restrict the gun. Restrict the ammo. There are specific rounds for military use.

Why do you say "I hate to say this, but people should be allowed to own all kinds of weapons"? I would agree with that.

The gun the Vegas shooter used, has been illegal to own or sell in the USA since 1986. Gun laws don't matter, if a criminal wants something he/she will find a way. I had a locksmith once tell me 'Locks are only there to keep honest people, honest." Which is true of laws as well.

Fully automatic guns are legal in many states, including Nevada. The shooter's guns may have been illegally modified, but machine guns are not totally illegal

Well I read that he had something called a bump stock on one of his guns that simulated automatic which is legal. I'm still wondering what the practical use of an assault rifle is beyond the military. And if they should be allowed, why should we be allowed to own so many? Were all of his his guns purchased legally? And if so, why doesn't the ATF track these types of purchases?

Yes, bump stocks are legal. Guns like AR-15s are often used for recreational and competitive shooting. I think all of his guns were purchased legally. I don't know that for a fact, though.

As far as why people can own so many, I would say because we have that right.

And that's the part that I'm questioning. If it's for recreation, we don't *need* it and therefore, restrictions can be put in place to try to prevent this.

Although I would respectfully disagree, I definitely do see your point

People on disability can elect to have a payee or designee to handle their finances. Meaning they choose a family member (hopefully a trustworthy one) to help them pay bills. I receive the federal money for my brother and distribute it to him for bills, food, etc. His choice not mine.

I see. Thanks :)

So the gov't had a rule that someone on disability who chose a payee couldn't own a firearm?

Yes. And when they added due process to the order the left went nuts and said that Trump wants mentally ill people to have guns. Completely innaccurate.

AR 15's are used almost daily in defending oneself and property, but it never gets national press. The fire arms magazines print the stories in every issue that were overlooked in the national media with regards to legal fire arms being used for protection.

More than regular handguns? To the point where it's necessary? How many are used to commit crimes? Every gun advocate I've ever heard or read about before you has extolled these types of weapons for recreational purposes only. Now it's about protecting life? Where were all these guns when the shooting started in Vegas? Outside of that hotel room on the 32nd floor?

Vegas is a very different situation. For a couple reasons based on current available knowledge;
1) As far as we know all of his firearms were purchased legally. That defies the statistics on legal firearms. 98.9% of gun deaths are committed with ILLEGALLY owned and purchased firearms. FBI database.
2) He planned this event by purposely shooting from a vantage point that would make a handgun response impossible. Nevada is an open carry state after all, so people tend to carry more often in this area.
3) He has planned to commit murder, which last time I checked was still illegal, so just by banning a certain type of gun would not have necessarily stopped the crime. He also had explosives in his car, if the rifles didn't work, I'm fairly certain he would have had a backup plan that would have still killed people.
4) You cannot legislate away crazy. I get it you can restrict what crazy has available to commit crazy crimes, but you only create a more helpless population of non-crazy people because crazy will FIND and USE something, look at Nice, France truck attack. Despite Jimmy Kimmel's ignorant statement regarding the executive branch undoing an executive actions that prevented mentally ill people buy guns, the law was a blanket removal of the right from any person receiving disability from the federal government if that person had a payee. For example, my brother has Multiple Sclerosis and gets disability and I am his payee because he is piss poor with finances when he made a good living and now that he is on disablility his income has been cut into a fourth. This under that legislation would have prevented him from a firearms licence. Even for sport target shooting. The new executive action allows for "DUE PROCESS" meaning a judge now decides on who is denied and who is allowed a firearms licence based on presented information.
Finally, if a criminal plans a crime that purposely rules out anyway to be stopped (he was on the 32nd floor!) there is no way short of a person in an adjacent room trying to stop him before police arrive to stop him.
Regarding the style of weapon, Handguns are used in most homocides and suicides of 18 to 25 year olds (the age group where the death rate is highest) than any other firearm according to the FBI database. What is the magic proposal for this? Because ILLEGAL gun possession kills more people.
Statistically speaking you are more likely to be killed by a handgun than by a mass shooting from an AR 15 type of firearm.

Can you explain that disability/payee thing? I don't get that.

You need to quit listening to the MSM. Full-auto guns are illegal across the board unless you have a VERY special license (and are usually employed by the government). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEihkjKNhN8

I didn't get that information from the media. I got it from researching gun laws in various states and talking to gun shop owners. Yes, you need to have a special license to buy class 3 weapons, but being a government employee is not a requirement.

Anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together wouldn't take you seriously (or believe you have done any 'research at all) considering you don't know what the word 'usually' means. BTW, Google is a search engine, not a research engine.

Okay, being a gov't employee is not even USUALLY a requirement. Happy? :)
