The frightening commentary on this article:
"The bottom line is that U.S. police shootings save court and prison cost. The shootings are in direct proportion to the number of criminal migrants that Obama is plaguing America with."

WoooHooo - if this is true then shootings of innocent US citizens should increase in the future - yes?

some interesting information. IMO all states should have similar rules and require mental illness checks & training before a gun permit is granted.

No.

Not the American way of thinking.

This is a comment by someone who is unhinged. Yes, it's nuts. But no, it's not something that is generally believed anywhere.

It's not even representative of our crazies, and we do have quite a few of them....

Bob.

Quoting 
Let me ask this. If the government has decided that somebody is such a high security risk that they won't let them on an airplane, why should they be allowed to buy a gun?

I'll TELL YOU WHAT THE ARGUMENT IS.......AGAINST THAT.....PLAN.

If they are TOO DANGEROUS to...... OWN a GUN...

They are TOO DANGEROUS TO....DRIVE a CAR....CAPABLE OF GOING 100 MILES an HOUR and...KILLING DOZENS of PEOPLE.


Quoting 
4 killed, 33 hurt when car hits crowd at Oklahoma State parade

They are TOO DANGEROUS TO......OWN A KNIFE...


Quoting 
Six Israelis Wounded in West Bank Car-ramming and Stabbing Attacks

And they are TOO DANGEROUS to......OWN A PRESSURE COOKER!


Quoting 
The explosive devices that killed three people and injured 176 at the Boston Marathon finish line were made from pressure cookers

The TRUTH is..... if THEY ARE TOO DANGEROUS.......TO OWN A GUN....

They need to be..... PLACED UNDER 24 HOUR SUPERVISION.

Or at LEAST HAVE GPS DEVICES ON THEM......AT ALL TIMES.

That WILL PROTECT the PUBLIC.

And the PEOPLE should DEMAND to KNOW the NAMES and ADDRESSES of ALL 900 in the US on that NO FLY LIST.

Plus the 47,000 others OUTSIDE THE US.

Then THE PEOPLE can WATCH OUT FOR and PROTECT THEMSELVES against THESE TERRORISTS.

NO MORE SECRET NO FLY LIST.

The PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW the NAMES and ADDRESSES ON THAT LIST!

New York Times :- In Missouri, Fewer Gun Restrictions and More Gun Killings

The gun homicide rate in Missouri was 16 percent higher in the six years since 2007, when the state repealed the requirement for comprehensive background checks and purchase permits, than it had been in the six years before. In the same period, the national rate fell 11 percent.
and
Federal death data released this month for 2014 showed a continuation of the trend, he said. Before the repeal, from 1999 to 2006, Missouri’s gun homicide rate was 13.8 percent higher than the national rate. From 2008 to 2014, it was 47 percent higher. (The new data also showed that the national death rate from guns was equal to that from motor vehicle crashes for the first time since the government began systematically tracking it.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/22/health/in-missouri-fewer-gun-restrictions-and-more-gun-killings.html


I personally like the following comment left on the site...
Let's play a word game, and substitute smoking in the article for every reference to guns. So that, we pretend, in Missouri, smoking was severely restricted until the legislature loosened those restrictions, and, since then, deaths caused by smoking have increased.

In fact, we know that when states enacted tough new restrictions on smoking (such as no smoking in public places, etc.) deaths from smoking declined because fewer people smoked and some who did quit.

Guns are like tobacco products in that they constitute a public health hazard. Your smoking is dangerous to my health. Your guns are dangerous to my life. We can control both, while still allowing some fools to persist in smoking and also allowing some fools to purchase AK-47s, as long as they pass a background check with teeth.

Until we recognize that an armed nation represents a public health threat, just as smoking was, this issue will never fade away.

NYTimes :- Virginia to Stop Recognizing Concealed Gun Permits From 25 States

Mr. Herring made the decision, his office said in a statement, after “months of research and evaluation,” including an audit of 30 states whose concealed-handgun permits have been considered valid in Virginia. All but five of them, he said, grant permits to people who would be barred from carrying concealed weapons in Virginia.

In Roanoke, Va., in August, a television journalist and a cameraman were killed while reporting on air. And the state bears the scars of the worst massacre by a single gunman in American history, the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech.

in Virginia, home to the National Rifle Association’s headquarters, the Republican-controlled legislature opposes restrictions on gun ownership. Virginia is an “open-carry” state; anyone who is 18 or older and legally permitted to carry a firearm may carry it in public, except where prohibited by other laws.

I know that sounds clever but what does referencing communist sympathizers and the ex-king of England have to do with mass shootings in America and Gun Control?
