You support the idea that under 18 year olds should be able to conceal carry. Why not in Japan, too?

No, Trump people support that. This is because Kyle Rittenhouse is a Fox/Tucker/Trump hero. Rittenhouse is 16

Really? nishikat's comment history:

Then that's against 2A. Kids (yes under 18) have a right to protect themselves too. Can't they carry a semi auto Glock like adults? They should conceal carry in HS and I'm sure the NRA supports this. With this school shooting only a good kid with a gun could have defeated this person.

Dec 1, 2021.

It says nothing about age in 2A. In fact some kids under 18 fought in the American revolution. It is their right just like any kid is allowed to write his or her own blog (freedom of speech)

Dec 5, 2021.

Guns (the non hunting type in many cases) are just adult toys. 2A says shall not be infringed and this means kids too. It should mean that kids under 18 should be allowed open carry (I mean hand gun semi auto Glocks) as well as CCP. What if some of those kids had been CCP, it could have neutralized the shooter

Dec 5, 2021.

Glock or other deadly weapons. 2A is 2A. Yes for kids to protect kids just like adults

Dec 7, 2021.

And Tucker should cover that kids should be able to carry just like adults with changes to the laws. Kids should be able to defend themselves with CCP and open carry because kids are people too.

By the way, should teenagers be able to CCP and open carry like adults? This way they can defend themselves just like adults can. It says "....shall not be infringed...."

Feb 3, 2022.

You don't think teens have a right to protect themselves just like adults? The 2nd amendment says "....shall not be infringed..." Teens are people too. Also, teens fought in the American revolution so white Americans could own slaves.

nishikat,

Can you use it if someone in Japan attacks you? It happens sometimes even in Japan.

You support the idea that under 18 year olds should be able to conceal carry. Why not in Japan, too?

“Nothing can be done”

What would you do?

Crickets. Again.

There's nothing California can do. They have all the gun laws in the world and still, criminals - who don't obey laws - all have guns. Get the criminals and their illegal firearms off the streets and you reduce the need for firearms for personal protection.

All a law abiding citizen can do is arm her or himself, take a safety course and get training with that weapon, and exercise their constitutional right to defend themselves and their property.

California has strict gun control. The strictest in the country. It has:

Universal background checks, Extreme risk protection orders, Domestic violence gun laws, Assault weapon and magazine restrictions, Waiting periods, Strong concealed carry law, Minimum age laws, Open carry regulations, Safe storage laws, Community violence intervention funding, Lost & stolen firearm reporting, Ghost gun ban, Gun dealer regulation, Local authority to regulate firearms, State firearm sale records retention, Gun violence research funding.

What else can they do? If people are determined to get their hands on firearms, they will.

a fully automatic AR15

No such thing, unless it's been illegally modified. AR-15s are semi-auto, and fully automatic weapons have been heavily regulated since the 1930s.

So here you have a judge in an allegedly civilised democracy raising the ghosts of 18tb-century revolutionaries in order to defend the so-called right of any disaffected junior citizen to take up semi-automatic weapons against the very state that appointed the judiciary in the first place, if they feel so inclined. Bats.

No, it's about protection from the state, should it turn tyrannical. Why would the state grant people the right to take up arms and overthrow it?

I am confused. Does this mean if you are under 21 you cannot buy a handgun but you can buy a semi-automatic gun in California?

Yes. You can't buy a semi-automatic handgun but you can buy a semi-automatic centerfire rifle. Although I think the court left the requirement that you have a hunting licence intact.

Now I know why Sophia is passionate about her guns.

Why? because growing up in a rural area, guns were an almost everyday tool for putting food on the table, keeping pests away from crops and livestock, and euthanizing the occasional lame horse? or living in and walking through a poor neighborhood alone at night, a young woman might (and did - no shots fired fortunately) need some form of protection?

Why have a gun if you aren’t willing to shoot somebody with it? How do you know these guns were not legally purchased? Who shot first? The person returning fire was using his firearm for lawful purposes?

no details yet but valid questions. If it turns out these weren't hunters or people keeping firearms for home defence I'll amend my statement.

No, wait. It was idiots with guns, in America. Keep it simple.

Right. idiots with guns, not responsible gun owners who use their firearms for lawful purposes as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. regulate the idiots, not the guns.

zichi,

If the root causes of gun violence aren't resolved there will be more mass shootings and gun homicides like the one in the post.

I read that same study:

"How has the rate of U.S. gun deaths changed over time?

While 2020 saw the highest total number of gun deaths in the U.S., this statistic does not take into account the nation’s growing population. On a per capita basis, there were 13.6 gun deaths per 100,000 people in 2020 – the highest rate since the mid-1990s, but still well below the peak of 16.3 gun deaths per 100,000 people in 1974."

It pays to read to the end.

Higher rates of mass shootings in US states with more relaxed gun control laws.

Not sure how robust the study was:

"This is an observational study, and as such, can’t establish cause, added to which the scoring system used has not been validated, although it was drawn up by lawyers for gun owners. Concerns have been voiced about potential under reporting to the FBI crime reporting system, note the researchers."

The proliferation of guns in the US is connected to crime rates and the direct result of decades of no gun control.

Crime in the US (including gun homicides and other gun related crime) is far lower than it was in the 1980s and 90s, despite the ever increasing number of guns.

"Between 1993 and 2000, the gun homicide rate dropped by nearly half, from 7.0 homicides to 3.8 homicides per 100,000 people. Since then, the gun homicide rate has remained relatively flat. From 2009 to 2014, the most recent year data are available, the number of gun homicides has hovered around 11,000 and 12,000 per year.

Motive. He had a gun

if normal, law abiding New Yorkers were able to carry concealed firearms, this maniac would have been put down in seconds. He obviously had no idea what he was doing- letting off a smoke grenade first and therefore obscuring his own targets.

Posted in: 2nd man arrested over Sacramento mass shooting See in context

A year ago, prosecutors implored the state parole board not to release (Smiley) Martin early from a 10-year sentence — noting his prior convictions for possessing an assault weapon, stealing electronics from department stores and beating a girlfriend he encouraged to be a prostitute.

Dandrae Martin, who was held without bail, was freed from an Arizona prison in 2020 after serving just over 1 1/2 years for violating probation in separate cases involving a felony conviction for aggravated assault in 2016 and a conviction on a marijuana charge in 2018. Court records show he pleaded guilty to punching, kicking and choking a woman in a hotel room when she refused to work for him as a prostitute.

I think I am sensing a pattern.

Wait a minute… in California it’s illegal for a felon to possess a firearm. It's illegal to convert a handgun to automatic fire. It's illegal to steal a handgun. It's illegal to carry a handgun without a permit. It's illegal to brandish a firearm in public. It is illegal to misuse a firearm.

All “common sense” gun laws that mean nothing to the people willing to break them.

Posted in: California may empower citizens to sue over illegal firearms See in context

Newsom is not coming after your guns, unless they are illegal.

i don't see anyone saying that.

His gun proposal is far more limited, giving private actors the right to sue anyone who manufactures, distributes, or sells assault weapons or "ghost gun" kits or parts in California. 

what about the 15 others he signed in 2019?

As SophiaHernandez commented above, "The solution to ineffective laws isn't to make more ineffective laws. It's to find and punish the people who break them." This would be an effective method at finding them

hoisted by my own petard. that's a good point, provided the law is effective.

“People argue that we’ve got the toughest gun laws in the nation. But they’re clearly not tough enough,” Democratic state Sen. Robert Hertzberg said Monday.

they are plenty tough enough. tough enough to be completely unconstitutional. "...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms (including 'assault weapons' and high-capacity magazines) shall not be infringed," The trouble is that only law abiding gun owners are willing to follow them.

The solution to ineffective laws isn't to make more ineffective laws. It's to find and punish the people who break them.
