We in the sensible parts of the world, realise that society changes over time and change the laws accordingly.

We DO NOT write our constitution in stone.

Present day USA reflects what happens when an amendment, the 2nd, written for the prevailing situation at that time, no standing U.S. Army, is still on the books unamended.

Dread to think what the bad old days of the old "Wild West" used to be like for guns killing people...

Only in the USA!?


Stay safe folks...

Correction: the second rep. Randy Fine tweet “Elementary school children is a small sacrifice that I’m willing to make for the Second Amendment” was from a parody account. The first one threatening Joe Biden was genuine.

Yes, sue them out of business I say.

Brooklyn subway shooting victim sues gun maker Glock for fueling 'public nuisance'.

Then there's your typical moronic NRA Man that Claims Hammers Kill More Than Guns and Is Immediately Fact-Checked.

..."More people and more crime is committed and more people are killed with hammers every year than guns," the man told Selvig. "Look at the facts, that is true. Look it up, you can Google it."

"I will look that up. I don't think that's true actually," Selvig replied before pulling out his phone.

After a cut in the video, Selvig then begins explaining his findings to the man, referencing the findings by database company Statista.

"So the number of murder victims and the weapons used," Selvig said as he explained the data.

"Number one, handguns, 8,029. Number two, firearms—type not stated, 4,863. Number three, knives or cutting instruments [at 1,739]. Personal weapons, fists [and or] feet [at 662]. Then rifles at 455. Then blunt objects clubs, hammers at 393. The hammers, that stat is just wrong."

The man did not address the new stats presented to him and replied: "Back to your question, the Second Amendment is still my right and is still important to me."...
And then there's the Uvalde Police Chief who didn't want to get shot.

Uvalde Council Shifts Course, Swears in Police Chief as Cooperation Unclear.

Who is Pete Arredondo? Uvalde Police Chief Facing Investigation.

He would be better off now thinking about moving and changing his name.

There is no gun defense against such use of guns as that.

Is this where the covid protective screens manufacturers now have a new deadly lucrative business in converting to bullet proof screens?...


Unfortunately, the NRA, and their gun idiots causing the death and mayhem, are destroying the American society for everyone... (Including for the deadly idiots themselves...)

Stay safe folks!

Well as expected it's started.

A Robb Elementary staffer has filed the first legal action against the company that made the gun used in the school massacre.

And while they get sued this lot should be just be rounded up and locked away from everyone.

Online pro-gun extremism: 'Cool for active shooter stuff'.
