The compromise is that people haven’t had enough and started executing these bastions of oppression wholesale. So it is to their advantage to keep chipping away. Takes time and they eventually get what they want. Of course once eradicated then freedom to own what you want will return...so really it is a lose-lose situation for the deluded, but they never think it through to the conclusion.

I have thought about this and looked for room to compromise re: gun control. I feel like this. I really learned to shoot .22 rifles in Boy Scout camp. At that age, I had technical competence plus a good understanding of gun safety. So I would agree with a minimum age of 11 years old to purchase a firearm with parents permission.

IDK exactly what it is other than to try to establish a foothold in the public mind that there are in fact "evil" guns or guns which don't belong in general society.


Yes that is part of it and it's logical. There is no reason to have them in society except for ego, and I personally think peoples' lives are far more important than conservative's desire to feel manly by having a deadly weapon.



So you would be perfectly fine with a un armed populace/military that can be beaten easily because they put all the guns away then right? NO way to defend our society equals easy prey to the rest of the world.

So because you think there is no reason for them everyone should give them up, glad to see you are open to an honest discussion instead of flinging insults...

Oh wait nope, all you have is emotion and childish insults.

crazy people who want to kill will do so with or without a gun and with or without permission from the state to have said gun.
The statistics debate is why actual conversation on what is really behind mass killings is suppressed or not even brought up.
They were all reportedly taking prescription drugs.

"Common sense" is a catchphrase, used by the unAmerican/socialist to confuse the "democrats". If the "majority" thinks it's common sense? I/they don't want to be "uncommon", do they?
Murder is already illegal. No good person would kill, unjustly. That's pretty "common sense". Swing a bat 20 times, or pull a trigger 20 times? The left's whole "common sense" is based on fear and ignorance.
The whole "liberal",.. "common sense" fear, of inanimate objects? Is not "common". Niether does it, make "sense". But tell a lie long enough?
There's a much deeper agenda than changing "common sense". The agenda is disarming those, that will defend "common sense".

"Common sense", would dictate, don't "murder" people. Murder, is not "killing", there's a deference! That would be good "common sense".
Seems to me, we have a "common sense" problem. Not a "weapon of choice", problem.

Even England's, London "Mayor", (bless his muslim heart),.. is calling for grinding/filing down kitchen knives. Really?
Here's "Common Sense" for you. There's evil out there! It'll take your coat, wallet/purse, home, country and mind. Don't let it/them! Arm yourself and don't sell yourself cheap! Make anyone that'll try and deprive you of life, liberty and freedom, earn it! That is,... "common sense" and die smiling.

Agree 100% with Everything you just said.

Yeah as soon as they outlaw "ARs", some clever wise ass will be pointing out how these Other weapons are more dangerous than an AR15.

AR15 is becoming the established standard, the high water line. Anything that can be considered More deadly than an AR will just simply Have to be outlawed as well. It's just COMMON SENSE, right? If we outlawed AR15 then its INSANE to allow these Other, Even Worse guns.

In fact they will be able to say, that it was So important to ban the ARs, that we had to change part of the Bill of Rights, arguably the most sacred part of the Constitution and it's amendments... so if it was that important, then, clearly, we Must include these other guns that we didn't know about before.

See if they just ban the "most deadly" that still leaves the 2nd most deadly, 3rd most deadly, and so on... no, if they are gonna gun grab, they are gonna make it worth their while and go about this in a sneaky way so they leave open a backdoor to be able to come back in another few years and take more gun types.

They don't want to leave us with Any reasonable measure of defense. If at Least one of their guys is being killed at each gun owners home they enter, they will have a hard time finding people to keep kicking in those doors.

People say you cannot stand up against our government because they have tanks and helicopters and etc etc etc... they can send a missile up your ass from miles away so there is no chance for a counter attack.

But they don't see the big picture. We are going to Force them to use their big weapons on civilians, on families. "RUBY RIDGE!" And how is that going to look on social media?

Yeah, they won't go that route. It would send the whole country into chaos. So as long as we hold the guns, we keep them at bay.

I can just imagine a reporter shooting an AR- 15 thirty times and then shooting a mini 14 with a hundred round drum (pointing out what weve all said countless times, that an AR 15 is no more dangerous than any other rifle) calling for the ban of all semi autos.

That's likely what some elite want... they know what they're trying to ban and they know that people with no knowledge of firearms will follow their lead because the AR-15 is so scary-looking. The people behind these movements are not ignorant... only their blind followers are.

"Common Sense" to these people is having huge areas full of unarmed people ripe for the picking.

"Common Sense" to these people is trusting the gov 100% no matter what, when every government that ever existed has proven they must be watched like a hawk at all times, and are under no condition to be "trusted 100% no matter what".

"Common Sense" to these people is to throw away countless millenia of honed instincts, and counting on "someone else" to be responsible for your safety and tgat of your loved ones. That means you are hoping that the police officers who happen to get the call, love your family as much as you do. And also you are just hoping they get there on time to be of any use, AND on top of that all, you're hoping they don't mistakenly kill you or your loved ones including pets.

All just so you don't have to learn to defend yourself like Every Other Living Thing Does on the Planet!

And this, is "Common Sense"?



I swear, the politicians KNOW this is an idiotic idea and it is impossible to implement, and it will Never Happen...

They just use it to distract, take up time, make it look like they are actually earning a paycheck... How much taxpayer money has been wasted so we can listen to them blabber on incessantly about a Total Lost Cause that will Never Happen?

They just use it to stoke tensions. It's a lost cause. A dead end argument. They know this!

The problem is they give anti depressants, tranquilizers, and other hardcore drugs to kids just because they aren't happy all the time. It's not Normal to be happy all the time, especially when the whole world is messed up! Depression is our normal warning sign our bodies are using to try to tell us that the current arrangements are Not Working... You know, the economic slavery and what not. Whether we know it or not, Our Subconscious KNOWS that things are not as they should be. And this awareness is manifesting itself in various ways. The appearance of once rare conditions like depression and anxiety are examples. In the past humans had even less freedom. We had kings, lords, nobles, emperors worshipped as gods, popes who command in God's place... but one thing makes today much different. Two things, actually, which are inseparable intertwined. Widespread knowledge, and technology. We were superstitious then. Now we know better. We know that all people, royal or noble or wealthy, or not, are equal in worth. We know that it's insane for an already wealthy CEO to be awarded a million dollar quarterly bonus when the employees who made that possible are one or two missing paychecks away from homelessness. We know that there is nothing special about Justin Bieber or George Clooney that should allow them better healthcare, more lenient justice system, all the sex they could want... we accept it, but, Our Subconscious KNOWS better. We allowed Bush and Cheney to take us to Iraq and Afghanistan and kill over a million civilians, on Our tax dollar, in Our name. But, there is a price to pay for that. Our Subconscious sees to it. The medications only help hide the problem so we can pretend life is normal for a little longer.

These common sense gun laws that they keep proposing have already been in place for years. This is the reason why they don't commit to policy..it's already in place. The problem is not common sense laws, it's entitled teens, their parents and irresponsible government giving doping these kids up with mind-altering drugs that's the problem. The media tries to scare everyone with the AR-15 because it "looks" like a machine gun, but they really have no clue what they're fighting for. The AR-15 resembles the Colt M9 Carbine, and they want to make sure that our police have no competition as they abuse their victims they stop. They simply want to remove the AR because it is a semi-automatic and if they can convince everyone to target that one weapon...because it's semi...it will put in place the policies needed to remove all semi weapons, and that includes all hand guns. Removing one freedom at a time. They are counting on the ignorance of the public, of which they are partially to blame for lying to them. So yeah, this is why people get sick of hearing about it...the common sense laws are already there...the 'common sense' Liberals asking for them...not so much.

STOP with the COMMON SENSE gun control pleas – just STOP! - falling on deaf ears

Especially if they tried to treat the first and voting the same way.

Same GD asinine laws for computers,cell phones, and the Internets, and at the polling booth as they do for full auto,suppressors, gun parts, smoke grenades,and other accessories parts.

Mandatory waiting periods.

Waiting 6 months to get a suppressor.

Background checks.

And every time someone gets elected they don't like.

INCREASE them ALL.

Target shooting and three gun competions (a form of target shooting) is a sport because people can own guns


Do you need an AR-15 to do target shooting??? No. We don't sell machine guns and RPG's to people, we don't need to sell military weapons to people either.

Actually class 3 firearms made before 1986 and auto sears are. Although it's called transfer.

Grenades too as long as the poll tax( fire arm tax) and required paperwork is done.

Who died and made you god to be in a position to tell people what they need or don't need?

Flies in the face of the RIGHT of the person to choose. AKA called civil liberty.
