Appeals court revives challenge to bump stock ban.


I remember when the best way of getting someone to change the subject around here when they argued that restricting high-capacity semi-automatic rifles was tyranny was to ask why they drew the line there, and why wasn't restricting full-autos tyranny as well?

So at least they're going to be consistent and it'll be machine guns for everyone now... whee.

Yes we all get it that you support the loss of innocent lives to gun loving nutters.

US Senate passes first gun control bill in decades
wrote:
The US Senate has passed a gun control bill - the most significant firearms legislation in nearly 30 years.

It imposes tougher checks on young buyers and encourages states to remove guns from people considered a threat.

In a rare bipartisan breakthrough on gun control measures, 15 Republicans joined Democrats in the Senate to approve the bill. It still needs the endorsement of the lower house before being signed into law...

... "Tonight, after 28 years of inaction, bipartisan members of Congress came together to heed the call of families across the country and passed legislation to address the scourge of gun violence in our communities," Mr Biden said.

The bill came after mass shootings last month at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and a primary school in Uvalde, Texas, that left 31 people dead.

The reforms include:

    Tougher background checks for buyers younger than 21
    $15bn (£12.2bn) in federal funding for mental health programs and school security upgrades
    Funding to encourage states to implement "red flag" laws to remove firearms from people considered a threat
    Closing the so-called "boyfriend loophole" by blocking gun sales to those convicted of abusing unmarried intimate partners...



... The bill is also significant because it is the first time in decades that proposed reforms have received this level of support from both Democrats and Republicans.

Historically, efforts to strengthen US gun laws have been blocked by the Republican party...


... But what of protecting married partners trapped in soured or abusive relationships?



Note from the earlier guns list:

... 4. Most purported self-defense gun uses are gun uses in escalating arguments, and are both socially undesirable and illegal...

... 5. Firearms are used far more often to intimidate than in self-defense...

... 6. Guns in the home are used more often to intimidate intimates than to thwart crime...

So that's just partially 3 of the 70 gun statistics partially reduced...


Stay safe folks?!...

Message 2101935 - Posted: 24 Jun 2022, 22:06:03 UTC - in response to Message 2101881.  

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is widely tipped to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, condemned the bill as an attempt to "try to disarm law-abiding citizens rather than take serious measures to protect our children".
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has opposed the bill, and argued that it will not stop the violence.
Sadly, there are still numpties in power.

Even if you do get rid of the numpties in power at the moment there are 100's, probably 1,000's, ready and willing to replace them.

As often said in the past, limit time in power & bring your constitution into the 21st century.
That should reduce the numbers considerably.

Same result as in the USA.


Investigators said the suspect, identified as a 42-year-old Norwegian citizen originally from Iran
...
Hatlo said the suspect´s mental health was also being investigated.
...
Investigators said the suspect was known to police, as well as to Norway’s security police, but not for any major violent crimes. His criminal record included a narcotics offense and a weapons offense for carrying a knife, Hatlo said.

Hatlo said police seized two weapons after the attack: a handgun and an automatic weapon, both of which he described as “not modern” without giving details.


GUN OWNERSHIP LAWS ARE QUITE RESTRICTED IN NORWAY COMPARED TO THE USA:
Firearms regulation in Norway
Semi-automatic and bolt-action rifles, as well as shotguns, make up the better part of the guns in civilian homes. There is a total ban on automatic firearms for civilians, unless they fall into the collector category. Modification of semi-automatic guns into fully automatic without the consent of the police is a felony crime.
...
Also, there is a restriction on the number of weapons an owner can have for each calibre. For recreational shooters, only one gun is allowed in each calibre. For professional and semi-professional shooters, a spare gun is allowed. A recreational shooter is only allowed to own four different handguns.
...
Gun ownership is restricted in Norway, unless one has officially documented a use for the gun. By far the most common grounds for civilian ownership are hunting and sports shooting, in that order. Other needs can include special guard duties or self-defense, but the first is rare unless the person shows identification confirming that they are a trained guard or member of a law-enforcement agency.
