Criminals will still get guns whether the govt assumes they can control it or not. All we do is impose more rules to break. Don't drink under 21...whatever drugs....whatever and the same with guns. There will always be those that will find a way if they want to. Quoting: lilwings 656961
None of this is about the safety of American Citizens against gun or any other kind of violence. The motives behind gun control can be found in the history books. For example, Hitler outlawed guns before he began to exterminate the Jewish people. Every instance in history where the population has been disarmed, the (Government) has then taken away more liberties.
The founding fathers of this country knew how dangerous Governments can be, that is why there is a Constitution, among other documents that outline inalienable RIGHTS. These are put in place to stave off corruption and ultimately oppression by the people in our Government.
You cannot tell me that a Congressman/woman whom has been in their (Elected) position for 20 or 30 years or more, has not taken bribes, pay offs and sold out the American people during some or all of their careers in Politics.
Does anyone in America know that over 40 IED's (IMprovised Explosive Devices) were disabled before the were able to detonate in America this year alone? I bet no one knows this, unless you have been (briefed) on the information for one reason or another.
My personal opinion is that these shootings, from the movie theaters to the schools are false flags.
