Perhaps this will be seen as a rant or simply as silly, but it is a serious question. I simply cannot "get it."

How - with what kind of brains or intelligence - can people, anyone, actually BELIEVE that any kind of law will stop outlaws from having and using guns? Or DO they actually believe it? Are they merely looking for a place to attempt gaining some sort of control/power? A patch of ground on which they can push someone around?

It seems to me to be so utterly obvious that outlaws WILL GET GUNS. If they have to, they will smuggle them in from military black markets, as they already do in many countries. How can ANY homo sapien with anything at all between their ears not grasp this? How can ANYONE think taking guns away from victims is a good thing? How can ANYONE throw a victim in jail for attacking an attacker? How can anyone not think such clamoring people are simply missing some essential part of their brain?

I just don't understand.

I might be mistaken but I doubt anyone here can try to answer your question. Maybe see (and I'm not kidding here) if Handgun Control ( :puke:) has any kind of a forum you can ask this at? You may want to use a disposable email account incase they decide to spam the heck out of it.

Might be a hard look, I did a search for Pro gun control and got 5,420,000 hits. I may look a little further!! Anti Gun got 31,800,000 hits. Anti Gun control 18,600,000.

But the thing is so mixed with pro and anti stuff it is hard to even look thru the top few pages.

My fear is that after trying all of these unsuccessful attempts at "gun control," to stop crime (an impossibility) the anti-gunners will finally lament that since nothing else has worked, it is time for the ultimate step, to ban guns all together. Of course a gun ban will only impact the law abiding among us and will only serve to increase crime rates, as they have in the UK and Australia. As crime rates rise, more and more government control is pushed down our collective throats. These people have no logic, or reason, but guide their behavior and agendas by their idealism.

The radical left believes since they are the truly anointed ones, only their ideas will work. It matters not that the ideas have failed in the past. The reason they failed was because of who was trying to run it. Because the current crop of lefties are so much smarter than any other group, they obviously will succeed where others have failed.

Such has been the history of socialist attempts to control the masses and to make the proletariat obedient.

I don't get it either an I doubt that those who propose the laws get it either. :???:

I do know that some make a lot of money and power from proclaiming these simple ideas. They don't want to lose that money or power so they continue to try to scare the masses into giving up their liberties for some presumed safety. Saw the same thing after 9/11. Politicians on both sides went out of their way to remove our liberties and write laws that presumed us all as guilty until proven innocent.

The police use the same tactics when they ask to search you vehicle. If you've got nothing to hide then you shouldn't have a problem with them searching. Guilty until proven innocent. I tell them get a warrant, bring the dogs, waste everyones time. But you better have probable cause, and my refusal to just let them rummage through my life isn't reason enough. They usually back down on the search warrant but will waste my time and call out the dogs to run around the car sniffing for drugs. Won't find any, and they still try to get my consent for an illegal search. Not gonna happen.

Gun control uses the same tactics. They believe they are right, you are wrong and your guilty if you don't comply.

Why they continue really baffles me and facts don't matter. Even if they took all guns from all law abiding citizens criminals will still get guns and make criminals out of us who won't give up our guns.

My favorite is in Ireland (I'm Irish) where guns are illegal that the number one weapon is now the beer mug. Just seemed to be handy I guess. ;D

Isn't that where the term "mugging" or "getting mugged" came from?
