RE:  <<<<<Whenever, we talk about gun regulation, somebody inevitably chimes in that Detroit, Chicago, Washington, D.C. have the toughest gun regulations and the highest gun violence rates.

 If Virginia has lax gun regulations, it doesn't matter how strict D.C.'s gun laws are. The same is true of every city or state with strict gun laws--you only have to cross the state border to have easy access to a gun. That's why we need a federal law mandating universal background checks.

 Hopefully, we won't have to hear this NRA talking point again.>>>>>

Hmmmm ... this introduces an interesting question in itself.
Regardless of where the guns are purchased, why do you think so much gun violence occurs in these 4 urban areas ?

The United States ranks 3rd in Murders throughout the World.
However, if you take out Chicago , Detroit , Washington DC , and New Orleans , the United States is 4th from the Bottom for Murders.

These 4 Cities have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the United States ..


All 4 are also controlled by Democrats.


It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data …………
...........................................................……....RIGHT?

No need to repeal, jsut make sure we never elect another GOPer to the Whitehouse then when the Fascist Five have died, the new folks will be able to rule that what worked well 230+ years ago does not work today, and if your want a gun, JOIN THE NATIONAL GUARD!. (just like the Founding Fathers intended)

Mick,

 You hit the nail on the head !  Twice as many guns manufactured in the U.S from 2007 to 2011.

 Money over morality, my friend.

 

 Just like Drill Baby Drill -  Shoot Baby Shoot.

In Response to Re: After the second amendment is repealed.............:



No need to repeal the 2d Amendment - just get a SCOTUS that realizes a "well-regulated militia"does not require private ownership of automatic OR semiautomatic firearms.





Posted by Olderscout66



Or require membership and PARTICIPATIN in a militia. one weekend a month, two weeks a year.
