Taxes will have to be raised to enforce those laws and provide mental health care. Pick your poison I guess.

what about all the other if it saves just one kid laws that weren't enforced. take the Florida school shooter who was reported several times and law enforcement did nothing.



Your right JT but

What about no fire arms on school property.

Or the big one, the law against murder.

This guy didn't give two ships about the law.

Solution: Make more laws.

As a law abiding citizen and a legal gun owner with concealed carry aswell. I dont see how this would hurt me at all. If it saves just one school from being shot up then how can you be against it. How can we be 100% PROLIFE and not care about our kids?

After Trumps illegal and unconstitutional act concerning bump stocks I'm not so sure that he wont sign it if it passes the senate. I would like to see it amended in the senate to add the hearing protection act if that were to happen I bet the Dems would kill their own bill.

HR-8 is Democrat's farting in the wind. It will never get passed in the Senate or signed by President Trump.

NO my argument is we don't enforce the laws we have now. If they are caught they get slapped on the hand and sent back out into the world to offend again.

If we try to make jail a punishment the liberals cry it is unethical to treat people this way. When there is no punishment for crimes, criminals don't give two ships if they get caught.

Try enforcing the laws we already have with a punishment that they don't want and see what crime does.

Take the school shooters if they are caught and publicly hang them. Sale popcorn for the show. This will prevent a heck of a lot of crime. Wanting to charge me extra to purchase a gun when I have done nothing wrong is not a fix. But I guess it makes you fill better ( well we done something ) Bull ship.

So because a criminal will commit crimes we don't need laws?

Because people will speed anyway then why have speed limits.

Such a ridiculous argument.

ok lets look at this another way.

Lets say I am POS criminal, I have a gun, you want it. Do you think I am going to take it to a dealer to sale it to you.

So how have we fixed the problem ?

Ok in fairness,
We should make a law that any car sold should have to go through a dealer. To make sure of things.

1. Buyer has a license.

2. Buyer has never had a DUI.

3. Buyer has insurance on vehicle.

Thousands of people are killed every year with vehicles, this is just common sense.

Plus the dealers have to make there profit from you or the buyer.

In your state every car has to be registered with the state no matter how it purchased, if you want to use it. You must have insurance and the car be inspected. So yes let's treat guns like cars and tax them each year just because you are still using it to help pay for the EMS and police when they are called out because a 3 year old got daddy's gun.

Sure if you want to compare cars to guns then let's do it.

Do you think inforcing the laws we have now without leancy would help more than making new laws

So to use the naysayers logic; why is murder, theft, assault, rape, armed robbery, drug & human trafficking, and kidnapping illegal? After all only criminals commit any of these acts. Toss the laws against these crimes. They don't work.

Ah, this just warms your heart and makes everyone feel warm and fuzzy don’t it. But in reality no one, not even the sponsors of the bill, have bothered to look at the data to see if this will have any impact on criminal activity.
