That happens already. As a convicted felon, that # isn't allowed to be in possession of a firearm already. How does this make it any more illegal?

All this is is an attempt to show "see, we care". When in reality, most of 'em don't.

Did you even read your own post?

If someone is going to commit murder - arguably the most serious law on our books in line with treason - the individual *is* a hardcore criminal. Accidental murders don't happen. Murders, robbers, malicious wounders and terrorists alike are all hardcore career criminals.

And yes, they can easily 1) Make 2) Buy on the black market 3) Steal 4) Buy privately a firearm. More importantly they can just use something else: acid, knives, vehicles, aircraft, poisons, bricks, sticks and many others

There is never a justifiable reason to attack non-involved individuals by going after our rights because of anyone's action but our own

The only silly argument is that a country with more guns than citizens (~450,000,000) could ever be persuaded to give them up. Not going to happen. And the proliferation of these weapons (which are not registered and many are not known about to the Government) makes them impossible to get rid of

Turning 10's of millions of otherwise law abiding gun owners into hoax-law criminals overnight is not going to end well for the banners.

Why don't you focus on banning useless cell phone zombie apocalypse enablers (cell phones)? Distracted drivers kill many more people every month than people with guns do in an entire year. Of course it was never about saving lives, and always about yet another aspect to fight your culture war against us and to usurp our way of life. In an act of desperate sour grape bitterness, amazing the left continues its assault on individual freedom despite American's overwhelming rejection and repudiation of your anti-liberty agenda

the branch of linguistics and logic concerned with meaning. There are a number of branches and subbranches of semantics, including formal semantics, which studies the logical aspects of meaning, such as sense, reference, implication, and logical form, lexical semantics, which studies word meanings and word relations, and conceptual semantics, which studies the cognitive structure of meaning.

Thank you for proving my point.

You cherry picked one word to pick a fight with me...

Sorry, but you are the one who turned it into a fight.

You could just as easily have said something like 'thats not what I meant' and been done with it. But no, you had to go and make a huge production out of it.
