You've pushed us into a corner and now you'll have to deal with the consequences of your inaction.

And just out of curiosity... what are you, the unarmed, going to do to effect your consequences? I'm willing to bet a large sum of money you, or those who think like you, won't be willing to go door to door to press your consequences...

You'll try to have those with guns take the guns? Why?

Point is that there was zero reason to “curb gun violence” with “sensible gun control” until 1934. Why did we then? Mafia violence over bootlegging alcohol during prohibition (which was over) and bank robbers being violent during the Great Depression (which we were recovering from by 1934).

Of course an argument could be made that both situations were caused by the government overreach due to Prohibition and the Federal Reserve Act (which required the Progressive Income Tax to find the debt of using Federal Reserve Notes and forfeited and seized privately held gold in 1933 before altering the gold standard to $35/oz. Both of which countered the US Constitution by having amendments added and Congress setting the accepted currency to a degree. People actually lost about $10 per ounce with the forced selling of held gold and the bump to $35 a year later.

1968 changes to gun laws was a short time frame until the dropping of the gold standard in 1972. 1986 changes were mostly due to Reagan’s assassinaton attempt, yet one can point to the dot com boom as a major change in the ways of conducting commerce and tax avoidance on purchases. But many will point to the Gulf War’s firming the petrodollar policy as the closer change to US economics.

Prior to 1934 anything was acceptable arms to own including cannons. Many of the cannons used in the Civil War were privately owned as well as ships at sea used for warfare and transport for CSA diplomats to Europe for treaties and assistance.

From your post to their eyes and brains. But don't count on it.

School shootings are not indicative of gun crime.

If you want to fight gun crime then gentrify the inner cities.

The recent school shootings are false flags.

I never do.

Easier to explain that guns are scary and should be banned than how unconstitutional political power grabs and economic changes herald or result in gun restrictions.

Anyone want to compare today’s gun control attitudes to the power grab of Obamacare in which the government required citizens to purchase of a product under penalty of law. Which would be an unenumerated new power? Because single policy coverage on males would never need the prenatal care provisions they had to pay for to be a compliant policy.
