One “gun guy” packing heat suggested that it would be awful if he was charged with a crime for wandering onto school property with his loaded gun if his little boy runs into a school playground to slide. Question. Why do people need to carry guns when they go out for walks with their kids? I’m just saying. Most people don’t feel the need nor do they carry guns in public. It’s only about 2% of eligible Americans who have their permits. And they are so victimized when people don’t really want them to carry their guns in public places. For how are we to know the difference between a law abiding person with a gun openly holstered and a criminal with a gun in a holster? But that seems to be of no concern to these folks. They love their guns no matter where they are. So do people who want to do others harm. They love guns, too. And they have managed to kill about 11,000 or so of their fellow Americans in gun homicides on average for the past many years.
Uh huh. Well if I don’t need a gun when I’m out for a walk, then why do you need to BAN guns? Nice little attempt at painting conceal carry holders as killers. Not true, but I guess that’s what you can expect from the anti-freedom camp.
Assault weapons? Oh those. They are just your ordinary hunting gun, right? No. They are not nor should they be. There was a bit of a testy exchange with a retired FBI agent who testified in support of the assault weapons ban and the legislator mentioned above. Said legislator took issue with the agent saying he didn’t know people who hunted with AR-15s. Mr. Legislator says everyone hunts with them. They don’t but if he says so it must be true. He says it with so much authority that he doesn’t expect to be questioned
Odd, I know people who hunt with ARs, AKs, and other so-called “Assault Weapons”, and who have been hunting with them for years. These people must not exist! Hey, but what do I know, right?
Keep up the good work, Joan! You’re money well spent from the Joyce Foundation!
