Yeah your reasonable proposals are one where you trade the outlawing of something that is already being outlawed for repealing a bill that's been around for decades and isn't going anywhere, and one that sounds like a good answer in abstract and then is violently opposed by the forum every time anyone tries to flesh it out into any level of detail.

I don't personally support banning 10+rd magazines, so going "but statistics" at me is going to work even less than it's ever worked on the people who do want them banned, which is not at all.

What are you actually talking about? What's the point? All that I'm getting from you is that the anti-gun people are unreasonable and don't actually know what they want.

NRA shill who thinks homeless people would love to live in migrant border camps. Help me realize I am a bigoted piece of shit.

Statistically, it's handguns that should be illegal.

That is statistically fine if you statistically remove all of the ones from actual criminals first and do not remove the ones that statistically are used in self defense from law abiding citizens.

edit: or again, end the drug war.

Handguns with an integrated, nondetachable white cowboy hat are permissible.

"My name is Nik. And I'm to be the next school shooter of 2018. My goal is at least 20 people with an AR-15 and a couple of tracer rounds."
Hmmm I wonder where all these kids are getting ideas to shoot up schools? Certainly it's not because they know they will get famous and plastered all over the news for months.

quote:

Law enforcement officials say Cruz tried to shoot from inside the building into the courtyard but was unable to penetrate the school's impact-resistant glass.
Tell me again how an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle?

Sadly this may be the way shooters are viewing things now.
How often are the leaderboards plastered in the media?

This is absolutely a factor. Asking them to voluntarily stop doing it is unfair because they haven't been offered commensurate compensation for the relinquishment of liberty-essential property that the 1A protects. The government could maybe offer a buyback for the reporting of mass shootings, but it couldn't be compulsory, because of all the cases where the reporting of mass shooting actually did some good in the world, as maybe 0.0000001% of people that watch footage of mass shootings go on to do them.

Ok, looks like we're back to the circular firing squad phase of this discussion.

If someone wants to crank out an effort post and try to keep this straggling along go for it, otherwise I'm going to close the thread again sometime tonight.
