Gun crimes here are very low.

And you are a dictatorship right? No, well guess that fucks the right wingers argument up doesn't it?

When you say, "meese" do you mean "Edwin Meese"?

We have. Bicicle folk are a thing here in weekends mostly and laws were made, for cyclists basic wear and traffic laws to keep drivers in check. 1 meter minimum overtake distance, they have to wear at least a helmet.

It has reduced car vs bicicle accidents.

Quote:law abiding gun owners do not need to betold. the burden of gun ownership weighs heavily on people's minds when ever they leave their homes or have company over or even worse kids. there is no peace for a lawful gun owner if their guns are not secured. and those are the people a propaganda campaign would most directly influence. It is the monsters who do not care or seek guns to do ill that make it unsafe for everyone else. most of them have guns illegally now, so what are more laws going to do? what will a propaganda campaign do?

I think it's important to distinguished between 'law abiding gun owner' and 'responsible gun owner'.  One can be lawful and still be irresponsible
I linked to a story a little over a month ago in which a woman in the US left a handgun accessible to a four year old who shot and killed his six year old sister.  The mum faced no charges.

My almost 3 year old is one of a curious mind. Keeping bleach, assorted torture devices, etc out of reach is a pain as it is. My grandpa gave me his 12 gauge shotgun, horizontal paired barrels. I wouldn't pass the psych exam anyway. So I gave it away to be destroyed, by the cops so they say. I have a galvanized 3/4 inch pipe under my pillow. SO if you walk into my home and me being aware, the pipe works better.

1. It never has but it has put plenty of them in power 

2. No invader is scared of you pea shooter 

3. So your justifying guns by saying criminals won't follow the law . Think that logic through.

4.Nope because none of you pussies have the balls to start a war because you know your band of weekend warriors would get stomped

That doesn't mean that what she did was lawful.  We have federal and state CAP laws, we don't enforce them.

Some of your guys views of gun owners is so disingenuously disconnected from reality that it's not even worth having a discussion about it.
