I won't get into defining what exactly an assault rifle is but assuming that we can agree on that, an assault rifle ban would have made this shooting a lot less likely then is your view. Maybe.

Guns are like healthcare. Enough dumb **** liberals thinking it helps to moderate. Yes, I absolutely want to take lots of guns away. Just like I want Universal Health Care. I'm proud of both and happy to argue on the merits. "Centrist" Democrats may as well be ****ing Republicans.

That is a legitimate viewpoint. Thanks for having the intellectual honesty to share that view.

It would have made getting 50 rounds out much tougher. Here's my proposal:
No semi automatic weapons
No magazine sizes over 10 rounds
No pistol grip shotguns

Easy peasy

How common are shootings that leave five people wounded? Today’s is the 53rd in 18 months. https://t.co/FEZztIQG3K

Obviously not so easy. I get your point though.

Re: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise + 2 cops + aides (?) reportedly shot

kerowo joining the "muzzle-loaders only" camp, I like it.

Gun control is such a silly topic of argument, especially on 2p2.

The chances of this particular shooting occurring, as well as other like them, aren't likely reduced by much if assault rifles were banned. If guns as a whole or specific guns in general became more difficult to obtain, it wouldn't be tough to win a debate that gun deaths would drop.

As someone who owns and will continue to own and shoot guns, I will concede that there are more *******s out there than I previously thought doting their prized possessions when they shouldn't have the capability to do so.

Hodgkinson Criminal Record

Failure to obtain an Electricians license is a petty offense. Battery charges dropped, traffic violations.

LOL arrested != conviction. You can google that if you'd like.

Aidsios, would you classify your assertion that he was arrested once as

[ ] mostly wrong
[ ] completely wrong
[ ] laughably wrong

?

Where did you use the word "conviction" in the quote that Namath highlighted, adios?

I didn't say only once. My understanding that he was not convicted of a criminal offense, felony. I wasn't aware of the contractor issue admittedly. I think you are wrong though about him not being able to pass a background check.

Bernie is an independent so this is not on the left. The shooter seemed like a real goofball.

Pretty sure Trump finds the whole thing cool/funny. People who voted Trump might wish it was democrats that got shot but they all got hard listening to that gun go off.
