Widebody sucks dicks. If you can't compete with your tires under the fenders or with flairs then move onto another make of car. I mean who would notice you changed cars it you painted it the same colors anyway?
WTF is this thing anyway? Bozoko? No longer recognizable. Has to have NISSAN on the front for fans to know.
Firearms makers... "Hey! we just make them. Who or how they are used is not out responsibility.
Gun sellers... Hey! I just sell them... I can't know how they are used."
Gun rights activists... " Hey, everyone has the right to buy, collect and own guns. What they do with them is not our problems"
Police.... "Hey we do what we can with the laws that exist"
Lawmakers... "Hey we have enough gun laws... the NRA has told us so.
NRA.... "Hey! if everyone was armed this would never have happened in the first place"
We have tons of laws and the last I heard, Murder was still a crime. We don't need the NRA to tell us we have to many laws. It is pretty common knowledge for us in California.
Again, easy for someone who does not live here to point fingers and tell us how it is. And when stupid laws get passed and nothing happens, then they start hooping and hollering on how the laws are working! Until something happens, and then they need more laws.
A hunter kills a lion, that hunter is a piece of shit! A killer shoots people, hey! That gun is piece of shit! Something is wrong with that narrative.
Mentally ill people are already prohibited from gun ownership. This is literally already a law, it is just NOT enforced well.
You want papers saying you aren't crazy? No way that would be abused...
So let's get back to what we know:
Crazy people aren't allowed to own/buy guns legally.
However, this guy lied and no one followed up and he bought a gun.
Similar situation with the Texas church shooting, he was already a prohibited person, but oh wait a normal citizen with an AR15 stopped that guy so it doesn't fit the gun control narrative.
So since what the mentally ill guy did was already against the law tell me how more laws regulating guns will help again?
It's almost like criminals don't follow the law, and if you don't enforce the law it doesn't work.
Fact, if you are a Citizen in Good Standing, you may purchase a firearm after passing a DOJ background check. You fill out the form and swear that everything you say is the truth. Right?
Here is the scary part, and it is not the part about lying on the form. It is the one about being honest and just being denied. No follow up on why you failed to qualify for a firearm.
So what is the point of doing the background checks and paying the fees for this if people will get away with a gun or be denied and just walk away with no scrutiny? Oh yeah, Fees, especially in CA go to the Democratic Boondoggle that is Sacramento. And then they say there is no money to follow up on the folks that got denied a firearm, who will most likely try and buy one again.
The system, not the Gun Rights, is what needs the overhaul. Maybe have someone ask you the questions and fill out the form. I am sure most folks are pretty good judges of character, with proper training of course, and could probably spot most types of prohibited people.
Please, keep in mind these are my observations and opinions.
Yes, but he was a known member at public events. Denying would be the worse move. Speaking to the media is odd though.
The guy claimed they gave him the rifle, when records show he bought the rifle legally from a Gun Shop. Once again, left leaning media eager to paint him as a Republican White Supremacist before anything has been established as fact by law enforcement.
The guys is a piece of shit regardless of his political leanings, If he even had any, and if he was a white supremacist, would he have not targeted minorities? Again, a rush to paint him as a Supremacist threw that out the window.
And I wish all politicians would just shut the fuck up until thing are sorted out instead of getting on top of those dead bodies to talk shit. And I am talking about both parties!
