This makes a lot of sense to me. Republican law makers saying laws don't work. Funny.

"I think if you're a member of Congress and you fundamentally believe laws don't work, you should quit. I mean, you really should. You're in the wrong job. And that goes for anything, including this issue,"

Laws banning things do not work. They just create a black market. Do not in any way take this as me sticking up for the Republicrats.

I'm sorry but you're wrong. There never was an assault weapons ban. Only scary features were banned like bayonet lugs and threaded barrels. You could still go into a gun store and buy an ar15 that didn't have the scary features but would still work exactly the same as one with scary features. Or you could buy a used one with scary features and preban scary high capacity magazines. So nothing was ever banned except a few scary features. Feel good legislation which is probably right up your alley.

I agree with the article. I find it quite duplicitous of Cabela's to profit from the product yesterday and agree with it being strongly regulated today. I would have respected their decision if they quietly chose to no longer sell the product. So, why the theatrics? They are trying to head off a leftist uprising by customers (and non-customers) who purchase items other than guns and accessories. They don't want picket lines outside their stores.


That mind set doesn't hold water. I doubt they would discontinue the sale of hatchets if someone hacked to death a dozen people with one. I wonder how many people are stabbed each year using knives similar to those sold at Cabela's. I bet they don't stop selling knives anytime soon either. Given, 1700+ people a year are murdered with knives, that decision would make more sense. It's a do-nothing move for optics alone.

You can't shoot 1500 times unless you have 1500 rounds of ammunition.

If this guy off'd 59 people with a bayonet on a 1903 Springfield, the libs wouldn't say sh*t about it. They would scurry around and change the narrative to "military-style weapons and need to be banned.". If you give these people an inch, they'll cut out your heart and show it to you. They play a different game than most of us.



Liberals are not interested in solving the problem. If they were, they would focus on the 40,000+ suicides annually in America and the 84 murders on average in Chicago every month. Those statistics are quite shocking to me but the Marxists go whistling by the graveyard.

The problem with the “backbone” comment, they may have feelings going in, but it changes real quick with lobbyists. What other job can you get making 150k a year, and end up a multimillionaire. They didn’t become filthy rich for our best interest.

Well, it is low hanging fruit and that's what they are going for. The sacrificial lamb of sorts.

I find it surprising that the Binary Trigger hasn't been mentioned by gun opposition. It is far more effective at creating a "faux automatic", and far more manageable than the bump fire bucking horse modified gun.

The fact is that the majority of firearms deaths are suicide, followed by gang killings, followed by law enforcement killings... How in the heck can the government fix that? They can't. The government cannot protect us from anything in reality. That is the cold, hard truth. Guns laws won't do it. Police can't do it (and I support our law enforcement whole heartedly). Only we can try to do it...

Vehicles are needed for the world to work. Fertilizer, hasn't happened since OK and you can't legally build a bomb like you can buy 30 ARs. Knives, handguns, matches, gasoline ain't taking down 58 and wounding 400.

But doing so would better address the root of the problem. These movies/games/websites (and other outlets protected by the 1st amendment) are inspiring the true weapons of these mass murders, the humans.

Why do you think all of these dystopian movies depict a society where the government is controlling how or what the people can think? Because the only way to end crime is to end free thought.

Additionally, if bump stocks, semi-autos, etc were illegal the laws would not have inhibited Paddock. His level of wealth would have made it easy to acquire the firearms illegally. Maybe we should make it illegal to be that rich?

Thanks for the link. This is my favorite part. Almost everyone seems to have forgotten where our rights come from. They didnt come from the Constitution, or Bill of Rights. Period. The govt has no right to restrict the posession of bump stocks regardless of the 2nd amendment. Period. I beg yall to read the founders writings and understand the true intent of the creation of this country. PLEASE! You most likely will never understand liberty until you do.
