Re: “NRA Says It Will Sue Oakland Over New Gun Laws

Okay, so people have the right to bear arms, unless they are at home or not at home. The safe storage law prevents self-defense minded individuals from being able to use their firearms to prevent crimes. I cannot see any possible benefit to this except to make criminals safer when they are committing home invasion robberies. You think suicides will go down because of this? Think again. Japan has virtually zero suicides committed with guns, but they have a much higher suicide rate than we do. If you want to stop suicides you need to go to the root of the problem, depression, mental illness, feelings of hopelessness etc., not the tools that are used.

Restricted magazine capacity laws are absolutely ludicrous and have never saved anyone. The shooter having an extremely large magazine at Sandy Hook actually saved lives because it jammed, as many of them are prone to do. Most shootings involve far fewer than 10 rounds being fired by the perpetrator, so banning standard capacity magazines is worthless. The real problem with these laws is the prevent law abiding citizens from having enough rounds available to defend themselves if necessary. If your mother is home alone and three criminals break in intent on doing her harm how many bullets would you want her to have to save herself? My answer is more! If you support these laws your answer is "she won't have access to a gun in the first place so magazine capacity doesn't matter, she should just lay back and let them rape her and beat her to death like a good victim." What if it was your daughter and her two kids? How cruel and inhumane does someone have to be to want to take away their ability to defend themselves?

Violent crime is the issue, not "gun crime". Guns are the tools used by many criminals, but attacking them does nothing to remove the causes, so if criminals don't have access to guns they will find other tools to use. If you are concerned about the safety of our citizens then work on reducing gangs, drug use, poverty, mental illness, the decay of the modern family and our societies lack of a moral compass. Anything else is like going to the hospital for a gunshot wound and the doctor doing nothing but putting a Band-Aid on the wound, completely ineffective.

While I am ranting I might as well piss off more of you, how can you use the excuse "if it saves just one child" if you support the killing of hundreds of thousands every year through abortion? That's a little hypocritical wouldn't you say?
