    We're up to 10 days since the last mass fatality shooting. Can we talk about gun control now or is this "not the time"?

    According to the FBI, over 200,000 background check requests for guns were requested this year on Black Friday, which beat the previous single-day high of 185,713 on Black Friday 2016.

    Makes sense. Our store sold through several hundred firearms on Friday alone.

    In the last thread, someone mentioned treating gun buying like getting an abortion. That's wonderful. But if you're gonna do that, you're forgetting two things:

    1. The nearest gun shop must be at least 50 miles away.

    2. You have to read literature on how owning a gun makes Jesus sad.

    Remember 3% of Americans own half of the country's guns. So odds are half+ of those are permits for those who just want their umpteenth gun.

    Just to clarify...upon last check, actual percentage of those owning guns is at a 30 year low - the rate was previously 50% higher. Gun owners are just a powerful and societally very expensive special interest group.

    I don’t know, but modern manufacturing and a high volume demand means there’s never been a better time to stock up on high-powered Christmas gifts for the kiddies. I got a great deal on a Savage .308 bolt action with mounted scope.

    I'm thinking about an AR. Might as well, since most of the Trumpsters have them. Plus, good prep for CW2 - spend 2018 stocking up on guns & ammo. The orcs are gonna be in for a nasty shock.

    Yeah But What Would These Guys Know About Defending the Constitution

    Sixteen of the nation’s top retired military commanders are urging Congress to pass gun control legislation, arguing that there are many steps that can be taken to curb gun deaths that do not violate the Second Amendment.

    In a letter they plan to send to Congressional leaders, the retired commanders, including Army Gens. Wesley Clark and Michael V. Hayden, Navy Admiral Eric T. Olson, Air Force Lt. Gen. Norman R. Seip and Marine Brig. Gen. Stephen A. Cheney, argue that Congress is “no longer speaking or voting for the majority of Americans, including gun owners” when it comes to the issue of firearms.

    “There is no acceptable excuse for our elected leaders to avoid addressing this as a national crisis,” they write.
    In a late breaking development Drew S. and many other USCHO "conservatives" now hate the military and think they are plotting to take our guns away
    "It's as if the Drumpf Administration is made up of the worst and unfunny parts of the Cleveland Browns, Washington Generals, and the alien Mon-Stars from Space Jam."

    "Scenes in "Empire Strikes Back" that take place on the tundra planet Hoth were shot on the present-day site of Ralph Engelstad Arena."

    This is why everybody needs a gun: so we can prevent traumatic tragedies like not getting a woman's phone number.

    Well, according to the story, the guy is a Chiefs fan so he's understandably a bit on edge lately. A Missouri jury would probably acquit.
