How is recognizing the huge problem of gun violence a "fantasy world?"

It's you gun worshippers that live in fantasy.


Are these FBI statistics fantasy?

More people are killed by blunt objects than by rifles of all kinds, including "assault rifles".

2x more are killed by hands, fists etc.

5x more are killed by knives.

Sorry to spoil your fantasy.

He is the most consistent super star contender for the office. For years he has been saying this stuff.

People hate underdogs so choose your lesser evil.

Good luck to you all with the same old crap. He is a socialist and we are broke.Do the math.

Guns....least of our future concerns. Though still valid I guess. When we have riots for food a gun will be nice to have around. Lol

In regards to gun ownership in the US, I grow ever suspicious of politicians that ignore the criminal element and mental health issues and instead target average Joe law abiding citizen. This call for outlawing certain types of firearms will only punish good, honest and peaceful Americans who enjoy their rights to own firearms and stands to embolden the criminal waiting for the public to be disarmed so it makes his illegal activities easier to execute.

Maybe he can explain his rollout strategy of how he plans to disarm all the criminals of assault weapons first, before he targets average Joe.

The primary cause of violence, including gun violence, is poverty.

If anyone were serious about solving an issue, they would address the cause.

Most people, who are self-serving agenda driven scum of the earth, would propose addressing symptoms.

Then Bernie needs to think a bit more.
AR15's and AK's are legal to hunt with in numerous States and are the preferred choices for hunting feral hogs.

odd thing to say days away from super Tuesday this will probably hurt him with libertarians and any one who is not anti second amendment i wonder how the people of his home state will feel about his statements.

and even if he wanted to ban all weapons not used for hunting what would those be exactly ? you can hunt a mouse with a 50 cal if you want while not practical it could be done ,many people hunt predators with .223/5.56 and 7.62's ,and big game hunters use every thing from large bore revolvers to .50bmg to hunt just about anything from bear and moose to frigging mountain goats so EVEN if he got elected i dont see him being able to do anything with this as the NRA is all ready 2-3 steps ahead of him on this issue

Another nitwit that never read the documents surrounding the forming of the bill of rights. Hunting is not mentioned as having thing one to do with the second amendment.

The saddest part of this is thanks to spin, like the thread title, people are ignoring what he said in favor of what they think he means.

"Guns used for killing people, exclusively..."

Y'know, like a belt fed machine gun? Something that's fully automatic? I can't lay claim to having hunted animals all that much, but I don't recall ever thinking "God I wish I could shoot this deer 31 times in less than three seconds. That would make this way better."

Now, one could reasonably argue he (sanders) might include any assault type rifle in his statement, but I think that's up to him to clarify and not others to ASSUME, isn't it?

Nah. Way more fun to tweak his statement juuuuust a little bit and then scream about it.


How many people go duck hunting with a handgun?
Or deer hunting with a handgun?
Or hunting ANYTHING with a handgun?

You are correct sir. And as another poster above stated, out of the 8,500'ish murders committed with guns, over 8,100 of them are with handguns.

Little math needed to read that message loud and clear.

(Why the left freaks out so much on so called "assault rifles" boggles the mind)

and when was the last time some one was killed with a legally owned automatic weapon?and the ones the police use dont count as you know they would not be held to the same restrictions as citizens,as a group class 3 owners are some of the most law abiding of all gun owners ,a few cops killed their wives with class 3 weapons but i don't think any of them were automatic either

Not a hunter, eh?

Everyone should Google search 'handgun hunting'.
You will get many hits.

Then try a Google search for this 'handgun hunting ducks'....
You will see one hit, about the third one down from the top, 'why gun control advocates like to talk about duck hunting'.

Should I be saying "bye bye Bernie?"


I was thinking "Hello Hillary"


She thinks the same thing whether she says it on camera or not.

The only problem with the idea is that it's prohibited clearly and emphatically by The Constitution. Bernard is hardly the first politician to wipe his poopy ass with the document, but yeah that's not going to help his campaign much lol.

Socialist nitwits the both of them.

The original post is not accurate --

I don't completely agree with Bernie on gun control but the original post is jumping to conclusions.

This is from the article




“Nobody should have a gun who has a criminal background, who’s involved in domestic abuse situations. People should not have guns who are going to hurt other people, who are unstable. And second of all I believe that we need to make sure that certain types of guns used to kill people, exclusively, not for hunting, they should not be sold in the United States of America, and we have a huge loophole now with gun shows that should be eliminated. Coming from a rural state, I think I can communicate with folks coming from urban states where guns mean different things than they do in Vermont where it’s used for hunting.”


"Certain types of guns used to kill people, exclusively, not for hunting," does not mean banning all guns not used specifically for hunting to be outlawed. What it could mean is assault weapons because that's the only guns I've heard him say on record he would consider banning.

No. I respect hunters, I come from a family of hunters, just never could take life unnecessarily for the thrill of it.

I get where you're coming from...I have an uncle that keeps a large caliber handgun on him when he takes out the trash at his cabin in Wyoming. Bears.

Self-protection from wildlife or our fellow man is the only thing a handgun is better than a rifle for.

Anybody who lives on a farm that has coyotes is likely to have a handgun. Anybody who hunts bigger game is likely to have a handgun. Are they "hunting" with said gun? No, but carrying it with the intent to kill a coyote is still killing an animal.

Seriously?
