Mayors Against Illegal Guns


Well Im glad they are against "Illegal" guns. Now tell me how putting more restrictions on "Legal" guns is going to effect the "Illegal" guns in the country.

I would really love to see this same study from 1994-2004 for a comparison of how that ban worked compared to what we saw in 09-12

I don't see why guns are even an agenda. I don't think we have a gun problem. People get shot, its sad, get over it. I'll take our murder statistics over Europe's police states any day. Quit talking about guns and worry about the economy because I can assure you that if our economy goes completly down the shitter we'll have a much higher crime rate.

Less than .004516% of Americans are murdered in total each year. Many of the ones killed with firearms was due to drug or gang involvment, so I like my odds, especially since I am armed.

Yep, and I'm sure there's a much higher percent fatality associated with flight crashes compared to automobile accidents. Clearly flying should be banned. Look, if we ever experience anarchy for any number of reasons/circumstances, I would be glad to have high capacity magazines which yield 123% more kills vs bad guys.

not about that

someone commits suicide the gun doesn't matter
someone commits a robbery the gun doesn't matter
domestic violence ditto
manslaughter/confrontation..the same

when someone is looking to do mass damage, the gun matters

28%....what's the % of assault weapons to guns?
It would be like Pitbulls being responsible for 28% of all bites while being >1% of all dogs.

And also, in how many of these "man protected family from intruders", "man thwarts burglary", etc,etc,etc....was the gun an AR/HPM

You can't even stop people from doing drugs. Any town any state. You want it? You can get it. The war on drugs? Please. Alcohol prohibition? Yeah that worked out.

More people die from surgeons than they do guns.

Lets say there are no guns of any kind in the US. ZERO. If somebody wants to commit mass murder, they just use poison or a bomb. If the theater killer used a good bomb, he would've killed everyone in the place. No survivors.

I'm tired of the gun talk. Yeah let's just say nobody can have one. That'll work. People want what they can't have and they'll do anything to get it.

That's 12 incidents among 300,000,000 over 4 years having high capacity magazines used. That makes this a prime example of punishing the masses for actions of a few.
Yeah, but if it saves ONE CHILD it's worth diminishing the other 299,999,999.

If guns were allowed on planes 9/11 never would have happened because the airline industry would have gone out of business like 50 years ago.

What is the definition of a high capacity magazine? 75% of semi automatic pistols have magazine capacities of more than 10 rounds. How does that skew the results...

Kinda. I could do a the same damage in a shorter time period with two .45's than I could with one AR and the same amount of bullets. However, if I wanted to inflict mass damage I wouldn't use a gun.

the mentality of the motivated doesn't see it that way.

I could do more damage grabbing wooden coffee stirrers, soak them in poison, let them dry and then place them back into a starbucks

But if I were crazy I would go for a more empowering/scary form of weapon.

Maybe one of you guys can explain something...

The "assault weapons ban" which included a high capacity magazine ban, passed in 1994, and existed until it sunset in 2004.

What year the Columbine massacre occur?

Right in the middle, in 1999.

How was this possible?
