IMO, there should be a stricter age limit for owning a gun. If you are under 30 years old, you should be prohibited from owning any gun. I believe enacting this law could prevent at least 35% of gun crimes in the country.


Approximately a third (34%) of murder victims and almost half (49%) of the off enders were under age 25

What does ATS think?


They could also extend that so that you've got to have an IQ above a certain level too, that would probably stop even more.

I'm sure the ones who think that gun crime would be reduced if more people had guns are from the lower end of the intellectual spectrum.

Or just stop all gun ownership - why the flip does anyone in a civilised society need one?

You don't want to know what I think, but I don't agree with you.


When will people realize that criminal don't care about Laws, they will get guns anyway. You would only be taking guns from good citizens.

Because I want them, and a piece of fancy paper says I can have them.

If you don't want one, that's great. Good for you.

Keep your mitts off mine.

Felons cannot own or possess a firearm so has one ever been found with one?

Certain urban areas prohibit some firearms. Are people found to be carrying them there?

Making firearms illegal isn't going to be much of a remedy any time soon.

Most mass murders/serial killers have high IQ's. lol

You should add that only people who make over 100k
per year can own guns. SMH

That says a lot 12.6% of a population makes up 52.5% of all murders in the US. They also added the Hispanic population to the White population. What is wrong with this info? Maybe by your standard the 12.% should not own guns.


Thank you for the info.

It's not a white or black issue, it's an age issue. The majority of homicides in the U.S. are committed by mostly 18-24 year old, which the majority of them are gun-related.

Really hope this isn't spun into a racial issue...that is unless they actually find KKK paraphernalia in his house or something...


Of course it's going to be a racial issue. they are already calling it a hate crime before the first news story even broke. Black violence on white folks is happening every day and yet it's never labeled a hate crime by the news media but this one is before we even know the story. If it was a black guy walked into a white church they wouldn't be calling it a hate crime this quickly, or ever. Think about it folks, all the police shooting unarmed black kids causing all out riots and now this, and so quick to call it a hate crime. It's as if they are once again trying to stir up the riots and eventually, a race war...what better way to declare martial law.

Thats what I see on a Twitter post:
EVODE ‏@Evode7 3m3 minutes ago

A white terrorist believed to be in his 20s apparently went into a Black Church and started shooting. About 8 people dead. #southcarolina


Annoying how everything is 'terrorist' related now. Can't just be a crazy guy anymore, everything must be terrorism.

Because this fits the definition of terrorism which is the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims. he wasn't there to rob the place and things got outta control.

Yes more than half of the homicides are committed by blacks which only comprise of 12% of the population. It's probably both a race and an age issue if you think about it.

Question:

Neither Adam nor Eve were black -- does that mean "God" was / is a racist


Both genetic Adam and Eve were black , A god or goddess can be racist but nature is not.

Make all gun manufacturers responsible for their enabling
of gun related crime . As they start to fork out large sums to
innocent victims , they will demand better screening of
their customers ......
