Cause everyone know harsher, stricter gun laws stop criminals.
The lord works in mysterious ways.
Patiently waiting for judgement day.
Ridiculous gun control laws, and they think it’s going to curve crime. Let’s all pray together for a miracle. This Administration needs to be defeated.
Curbing crime has nothing to do with it.
I’m pretty sure the anti self defense/hoplophobe crowd would actually define keep as only applying to a limit of one registered single shot musket produced before 1791 placed unloaded in a safe on your own property with the ammo stored in a separate safe in another room.
Bearing arms would only be allowed once a year at a government authorized range. Firearms would have to be fully disassembled and transported under police escort to and from the range without ammo. Your annual allowance of 5 practice rounds must be purchased at the range with a 10,000% firearm safety tax.
So sayeth the majority of those who actually turn out to vote in Minnesota.
I don’t believe these scoundrels do anything with regard to who votes for what. Real “representatives” of the people are rare these days.
Those scoundrels get elected by the majority of the electorate that turns out to vote. People who don’t vote (for whatever reason) are essentially giving their proxy to those who do show up to vote.
Isn’t that the same electorate that continues to send an openly anti-semite, (allegedly) brother-marrying probably-illegal alien to the US house?
That’s partly true, for sure. Pa voted for Fetterman? Not a chance in hell. They manufactured votes until he got in.
Those who refuse to participate in their gubment soon find themselves at the mercy of their enemies.
I think a lack of voters is part of the problem. But the choices we are almost always given to vote for in most elections aren’t likely to move the needle much, if at all, towards solving the problems we face.
I occasionally don’t vote because all the options on the ballot are just too blatantly corrupt to deserve my endorsement. When I do hold my nose and vote for the lesser of the two evils on the ballot I know that even if that person wins we still all lose. I feel that the best I can do with my vote is to slightly increase the time we get to keep circling the toilet bowl before going down the drain.
Is everyone here good with agreeing that any person who violates any of these laws, knowingly or unknowingly, belongs in jail? Just curious as a spinoff from the other thread. And a reminder to be careful assuming that everyone who finds themselves in jail 100% belongs there
I get the impression that people think politicians get elected expressing their own positions.
They get elected because they express the people who vote for them’s position.
It’s the people that have to change not the politicians.when the people change it will be reflected in the politicians we vote for.
Courts have long held that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Whether or not you like it, you can go to jail for doing something you don’t know is illegal.
This is true.
And most legislators have a very high reelection rate.
We have a weird situation where Congress (or a state legislature) will have a terribly low approval rating but then 90%+ of incumbents will be reelected. It’s like…wait waht
This is true.
For example, millions of Americans are now felons who could end up in prison for years because they bought a braced pistol at a gun store and now it is a felony to possess.
It is our job to do research into every aspect of our lives on a regular basis to make sure we aren’t suddenly criminals, even felons.
One of my favorite examples: It used to be that if you had a knife with a blade over 2" long on a college campus in GA, you were a felon. Literally a swiss army knife or a regular butter knife used for rolls while tailgating at a college football game…felon. Fortunately people weren’t usually charged with that but if they were…they’d be in prison for a year+ and [based on how our system works] it would be their fault…they were supposed to know having a bread knife tailgating is a felony
I talk to a lot of people who don’t realize gifting their son or daughter a firearm, when son/daughter lives in a different state, is a felony if they don’t go through an FFL.
So, public service announcement…you cannot transfer possession of a firearm between people who reside in different states without going through an FFL or it’s a federal felony. Make sure all your gun owning friends/family know this.
