Gun ctrl is like reducing drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to own cars.

No, gun control is like asking people to pass a test and get a license to drive and to ensure their car has brakelights etc for the sake of public safety. Opponents to gun control are like hillbillies who think they have a constitutional right to drive a military tank at top speed with utter disregard for traffic lights, and if the rest of us don't like it then we're all supposed to go out and get our own tanks so we can have one big tank battle to resolve it.

My sentiments, exactly. I'm thankful that there are still some Americans that use common sense rather than the "common sentences" that have been imprinted on their brain by pundits using those same sentences over and over, and over....

I can't agree more. There is no comparison here and if there is then it would favor gun control. People should be required to take courses and pass a standard safety test to get a gun.

Uh....wrong.

This is an overstatement.

More accurate to say that Gun control is like enforcing legislation so provenly crazy people don't get to drive cars. And also that people with histories of drunk driving don't don't drive.

And that not ALL cars are taken away..only a top-fuel dragster that wants to go to a driver to commute in on city streets. (this is my analogy for the ban on automatic weapons.) good one, huh? Just like auto weaps are not used for anything but killing a lot of people, dragsters are not needed for anything but racing.

hope this helps and gives you a better analogy. thanks!!

I don't have a problem with background checks, or prohibiting people with felonies or potentially violent mental disorders to own firearms. However bans on high-capacity magazines, pistol grips, barrel shrouds and other "military style" features I do oppose.

Out of curiosity, why do you oppose a ban on high capacity magazines?

Side: True.

Wait..., what? No!!!

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

Laws against Driving and Drinking have stopped anyone from doing so Progressive ? You Progressives are just to STUPID ! You Progressives believe more laws will stop anyone from breaking a law ! Where do you get your IGNORANCE from ?

That some people break the law is not evidence that laws do not work at all.

Those are "regulations", a dirty word on the right. Something that would be "Trumped" should he be elected!

Drunk driving laws PROTECT sober drivers, as well as tipsy ones. It doesn't work 100%, we don't expect gun control to work 100%. Drunk driving laws have saved many lives, kept crazies off the road MANY times. Hopefully, with 80% of "WE, the people" wanting "reasonable " gun control, it will do the same.

"They'll take my guns from my cold, dead hands!" I agree, but, I'm not , in the least, worried about that .... unless the slaughter continues! Let's be reasonable NOW, as the majority of even NRA members want to be, and take reasonable steps ... before things get "unreasonable"! It's just the NRA hierarchy, and the conservative Congress, that is unreasonable and stupid.

Bullshit. Come to California where we have a tiny list of guns that are legal.

Well, that's what you get when you have every state with a different idea, and little national regulation. When we have "smaller", more controllable government, and each state making its own rules ( with each change of party), you will have bullshit after bullshit. We still need a central government with national regulation or we will have border to border disputes.

The NRA does not "make" any guns. That doesn't mean that they don't "profit" from the industry. Where do they get the money to control Congress? From the ones that DO make the guns. They are the organizers of the people WITH guns, or that want them, (like me). I simply chose to leave the organization when I was no longer proud to be a member, when they went radical!

Now that I have explained my ignorance, explain YOURS.

All gun control means iss preventing crazy people from having guns. If you are mentally healthy, no one will take your guns away.

That's what would be nice but Hillary and Obama would rather us good Americans be unarmed when shit hits the fan. Obama is a low key Muslim himself! Communist, look at what Hitler did in his day of reign. He took the guns away from all the people and said "We will be safer than ever". Before he did that he took away smoking cigarettes in public places like restaurants. Who does this remind you of? It's all about controlling the people, once you take away their rights little by little soon enough you can take over the country just like Hitler did. History repeats itself! Only this time Obama let's in thousands of refugees because we are the bad guys and we aren't being "sensitive" to these people when God knows how many of them are ISIS flooding in to America. Taking away guns is only going to leave the good people unprotected, the bad people armed (because if I want a gun I don't need to get it legally it's that easy) and opens a gap for a whole other storm to come with terrorism. If I were a terrorist and I had two options to choose from of neighborhoods, ether to attack a neighborhood with a sign that says "We are protected and armed" or the other that says "We hate guns, guns are not allowed" which neighborhood would I go shoot up? Let that sink in

Another thing that happened in Hitler's day, He convinced a LOT of people, by telling the same lies, over and over, very loudly,. Those became truths to many. The same is happening today .... as your statement shows.

I don't support Hillary or Obama, but I doubt they would take guns from mentally stable people. To say otherwise is conservative fear mongering.

Since we are making a comparison between firearms and motor vehicles I suggest we get rid of all motor vehicles and increase the number of firearms. I believe this would be a significant test in determining how the economy will fair under such conditions.
