Gun Ownership Fact and Fiction
Statement: “Guns = oppression”
Fiction: Guns in the hands of an informed populace trained in gun safety = oppression.
Fact: Guns in the hands of the government, not the citizens = oppression.
Super Fact: Guns in the hands of an informed populace trained in gun safety = power against an oppressive government.
I went to a gun store in Joppa a week ago just to browse, and there was a Baltimore PD cop in there buying a mounted light for his sidearm. We got to talking, and just for kicks I asked him how much black-market AKs are going for on the street in the city (Baltimore is known to have an international arms-trafficking issue). His response? “Honestly, for a full-auto AK smuggled in from Mexico you’re looking at around $550. It’s not a good situation for us to be in.” Let’s repeat that. Criminals can get fully-automatic assault rifles for cheaper than most civilians can get a legal firearm, and that in an area with some of the strictest gun control in all of North America, and in fact even the world.
Tell me again how banning things keeps them out of the hands of the bad guys.
I shit you not the average price of a black market handgun in my state(which requires all gun owners to be licensed and register their guns with the state) is between 100-200 dollars.
Full auto UZI’s are like 400 bucks(compared to a legal registered FA UZI which is easily a few grand)
Prohibition doesn’t work.
Here in Ft. Rucker AL. (surrounding area), we regularly get criminals with various handguns that they say they bought off a buddy for $50-$100. Banning guns, or even limiting their ownership, will never stop a person who wants to do bad from doing bad.
hey gun nuts
your precious second amendment is supposedly meant to protect us from what is happening in ferguson right now
yet it’s still happening
and yall are supporting the police state (at least the majority of you are from what i have seen on numerous articles and social networking)
im not saying hypocrite but…
Ferguson, MO. and the surrounding area has some pretty strict limitations on guns and is a heavily Liberal district. It is literally a gun control advocate’s dream. Only the police have guns (openly).
Now, that said, the people who DID protect themselves with guns, fared much better than the ones who didn’t.
So, I’m going to have to call BS on your faux outrage and call it what it is: You taking advantage of a bad situation to shamelessly push your politically driven narrative that, when scrutinized, doesn’t hold an ounce of water.
Try again, OP. You can do better.
Why? Why am I limited? Why can’t I have different rifles for different purposes?
Whoever said this can kiss my rump and re-read the Constitution. Common sense will tell you that “one size fits all” really means “One size fits none.”
To those of you that are uncomfortable seeing someone carrying a weapon in public:
Just remember that for every person you see open carrying, you probably missed about five or six people that were concealed carrying.
Just food for thought.
honestly why would you need anything more than a handgun or rifle? Like i get self-defense and hunting, but you do not need to take them to Target or the grocery store or Waffle House like you look like an idiot. it makes me mad. What are you gonna do. how often are you gonna need to shoot someone at a them park. WE NEED MORE GUN CONTROL
I can’t even understand the argument you’re trying to make…
You can never understand the illogical ramblings of the emotionally driven. They let their fears outweigh their common sense.
Not to OP: While you may see a few guns being open carried, those are but a fraction of the guns actually being carried. Most people conceal carry and you never even know it.
