Liberal: That's why I feel there should be a cap on prices or else everything will continue to go up and we’ll be back in the same boat as before except at a higher priced level.
3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next weekWhich most people recognize as being a real and immediate threat. However, they are proposing that the use of phrases like: “I,” “me,” and “mine.” indicates a person who is more likely to do violence than a person who uses words like: “great,” “happy,” and “amazing.” They go on to claim that a person can be diagnosed with personality disorders or depression, based on nothing more than their social media posts. They claim that that people who become violent are more likely to use emotionally laden words like “shit,” “hate,” “you” and “they.” while being less likely to use words about the external world, such as “people,” “world,” “state” and “time.”
we are optimistic that these words can offer a window—and a warning—about individuals’ intentions. This work is by no means a standalone solution to gun violence or terrorism, but it might help, even as predicting and preventing these sorts of attacks remains incredibly difficult.
People like you claim that gun laws wouldn't work because criminals don't obey the laws. Criminals don't obey the laws in other similar countries that have gun control, but they have significantly fewer murders (see eg UK). The reason? Most illegal guns in the USA start as legal guns - they are stolen, sold, etc and end up in the hands of criminals. Since there are so few LEGAL guns in the UK, its very very difficult to obtain illegal weapons (that's why the 3 terrorists in the London Bridge attack used a van and knives - as a result the 3 of them only managed to kill 7 people - a single mass shooter in the USA can easily kill 10, and the record is 59).1 Yes, MOST guns in the US start off as legal guns. Most liquor starts off as legally consumed, but then a person uses it in a criminally negligent manner. It isn't whether or not an object starts off being legally purchased, because it isn't the object that commits the crime, but the person using it.
In fact, gun control works in the USA too. The AR15 is the weapon of choice of the mass shooter, despite the military M16 being a more deadly weapon (and hence preferred by the military). Why would a mass-shooter opt for the less deadly AR15? Because its very difficult to obtain the M16, as its illegal in most states. The fact that law abiding citizens can't obtain the weapon makes it virtually impossible for criminals to obtain it.
Anyone who thinks gun control doesn't work hasn't looked elsewhere. The UK is so safe that most police officers aren't armed. In the USA there are calls to arm school teachers! People scratch their heads and pretend they don't know what can be done about these regular school shootings - even more guns perhaps? The last school shooting in the UK was in 1996. Gun control does work.
Unless they specifically address it, if there's an assault weapon buy back, all you sell back is the serialized lower, because that's the gun. Get some 80% lowers and get them ready to assemble or swap them out in advance and sell back stripped lowers.He is rightly pointing out that the ATF has long held that the lower is a firearm and everything else that attaches to it is merely an accessory. With that in mind, is my stripped lower an assault weapon? After all, even using the new definition of "assault weapon":
Uppers are not guns, stocks are not guns, trigger groups or drop-ins are not guns.
