there really hasn't been a strict gun control period in modern times. Assault weapons ban isn't strict gun control.

I'm not even advocating for strict gun control. There is an issue, and I'd even say it's an epidemic. I do believe some measures should be taken.

At this juncture in time though, even small measures won't be taken, so I guess it's a moot point.

Yes it was it banned many rifles. But the Problem is you guys are too dumb to figure out RIFLES (Including assault rifles) are not WEAPONS OF CHOICE.

His ban also effected the sales of HAND GUNS


What you guys have not learned BANS ONLY EFFECT LAW ABIDING CITIZENS..


It is the Criminal's JOB DISCRIPTION to violate the law.


Police STOP ~ 10,000 crimes a year while they are in progress


ARMED CITIZENS Stop between 800,000-2,500,000 crimes a year while in progress.


It depends on which Study you use.

Florida State

University of Chicago Law

UCLA

or Sheriffs association.

I was like 13 when that happened. I had nothing to do with it, sorry.

and I don't think I've once defended it here, or suggested a ban of any type, so why are you coming at me about a ban that expired 15 years ago?

this is the thread for discussing all gun violence and homicides in our Country,

and what we're going to do about it
On a more serious note, and while I worry about the new political fashion to be less punitive when it comes to crime, we are not facing a homicide epidemic or anything like it. In fact, we've made excellent progress on violent crime rates over the last 25 years.

also these Republican representatives take money from the NRA, so they do what they're told
I think it's fair to say that gun violence in America is concentrated in our cities. Say, which party is almost universally in charge in those areas?

How do you get from "edged higher" in your cite to your take of it being "definitely an epidemic?"
