    As long as they are permitted to blame the tool and not the perp, this trend will continue.
    Completely true. If they ban a class of firearm as 'the cause' of gun violence and there is no dip in crime because the ban was useless from the start, instead of acknowledging that they will double down and go after the rest claiming the ban just didn't go far enough. Predictably when the complete ban occurs and there is still gun violence, well who cares. They will be safe guarded by guns and collecting a pension.

    Even if all guns are eliminated from society, there will still be violence in the world.

    It will just change form.

    Just look back in time to Romans killing each other with knives and swords. If that's all people can get, that is what will be used.

    I've seen on the news where this is already happening lately.

    The worst part of blade violence is that it is silent. At least a gun audibly announces its discharge and notifies people.
    A high post count means nothing…
    A high burned out barrel count means everything…

    You're absolutely right. Don't forget, 9/11 was a case of highjackers using box cutters... Only THEN did the plane become the weapon.

    Liberals want to prohibit more assault weapons rather than ban handguns

    A reminder - Liberals want to ban everything.

    At each step, the only question is, “How much can we get away with this time.”

    They aren’t just terrified of us being armed, they are terrified that we will coalesce into a major voting block that they cannot defeat.

    Meanwhile, we waste our efforts fighting the latest ban, using the same tactics that have failed for half a century of fighting the latest ban.
    To demonstrate that people can actually go to the moon and back, you use the American experience.
    To demonstrate that public safety is not adversely affected by responsible people carrying to protect life, you also use the American experience.

    They’re just going after long guns because they’re not used in murders much anyway. Then they can say they made the country safer. If they ban handguns the street gangs will still be shooting themselves the next day so it won’t look like it accomplished anything not that it would.
