Here's a genius idea  ::)

Should a reduction of police funding depend on gun law reform.

 
About 30% of all Americans own a gun. It seems to me that reducing the police (via some defunding) should also come with a reduction of fire arms (especially hand guns).

I am all for having a police force that is less armed and more proactive. However, I want that to come with gun law reform.


Wow!  Get rid of the cops then disarm the law abiding so they can't defend themselves.  Talk about making your everyday Joe a sitting duck for any and all that wants to do him/her harm.

1. Hand guns?

I’m not sure that would be popular anywhere. Semi-auto machine guns and others like that is what they will go with.

4. Here in my little town

people were saying that instead of police being called out to deal with domestic 'arguments' (that's what they called it), we should send in social workers.

I am a social worker.

I am also not stupid, lol. (As in, don't send me!)


A few years ago when we lived in a city down south (Tallahassee, FL), in our neighborhood a neighbor walked next door because he heard a domestic argument.

The abusive boyfriend shot and killed the man who wanted to help.

We're such a convoluted (my opinion) country. I'd love the police to not even carry guns, frankly. But our citizenry is often armed.


That's EXACTLY what your side is saying.  Take the money from the police and give it to people like you to go take care of these issues.  You're a prime example of why this is a bad idea.

And thanks for showing your colors on how you feel about my country.  I'm quite sure things like that never happen in any other country on this planet.  You're the best and brightest?  Really?  LOL  Ok.

2. You will not see major gun control legislation for the foreseeable future.

The Dems want to win and hold the Senate. Too many red/purple states we have to win in to make gun control an issue.

5. Damn shame

n/t


After the weeks of watching absolute animals out roaming the streets doing unspeakable things and you think it's a damn shame that we can protect ourselves without needing to wait for the police while someone is actively pounding our doors down, breaking out the car window to drag you into the street to let the mob beat you to death, etc, and you think it's a "damn shame" the government won't disarm me.  Pound sand loser.  (in DUmmie speak "Pound sand looser")  Wouldn't want to confuse the DU readers.

So ........ tightening gun laws will result in criminals handing in their guns and a reduction in crime, enabling partial defunding of the police? In what inverted parallel clowniverse?!

Current bail/bond policies have reduced or no bail and the jails/prisons being emptied because of Covid-19. New policies want to reduce the number of police while the number of criminals out on the street are going to be higher than ever. Now this DUmmie wants to prevent people from protecting themselves with a handgun.

My response? GFY  :bird:
The policies that are indorsed by this party, that they backer of which are much of the 1 percent, causes a social structure much like the one back before the Revolution.

The idea of liberal social workers getting killed trying to mediate domestic disputes I find to be amusing. Sometimes the best hope is when libs have to confront the results of their own twisted values. Although admittedly, the overwhelming majority of them still can’t seem to figure it out.

There have been record gun sales over the past few months due to the panicdemic and then the mob violence. The gun control issue is not going the way gun grabbers would like it to.

What a coincidence I was just bidding on a semi-auto machine gun on the interweb. I ended up passing on it when I found out that it did not have the 100 round clip and was also not made of 3D printed plastic so I could get it through airport security.  ::)

It did have the bayonet lug and silencer though so that was good.

Hey, if they want to ban "semi auto machine guns" I'm good with it.  I'll even help them get it passed.  There's only one caveat I would add to it.

It absolutely has to be the last gun control legislation they 'shoot' for!

But did it have heat seeking plastic bullets or a shoulder thing that goes up?

No heat seeking bullets but it is the super duper powerful .223 which I have on good authority will blow a hole the size of a baseball while tumbling right through an engine block.  Assault rifle 15 > Assault rifle 10.

Actually, an AR-10 is only 2/3 as powerful, mechanically, as an AR-15. Also, .308 goes into 5.56 18.05 times, therefore, a 5.56 is 18.05 times as powerful as a .308.
