[T]he evidence on the effects of universal background checks and assault weapons bans is pretty weak. Several studies in recent years have found that universal background checks, at least on their own, don’t seem to have a big effect on gun deaths. Similarly, the research on assault weapons bans, including the national ban that Biden helped pass in 1994, found they have little effect on gun violence, largely because the vast majority of such violence is committed with handguns. …

One way to explain these findings is that the reach of universal background checks and assault weapons bans is too small. The US already has background checks for most legal gun purchases, and all universal background checks would do is cover the minority of gun purchases not detected in the existing system. An assault weapons ban would cover a minority of guns used in crimes and would probably have loopholes that miss segments of that minority.

  1. So I gather they’ve concluded a means to round up gun owners rather than the guns themselves will be more beneficial to the Great Leap Forward.

    • The democRat “Gun Violence Drumbeat” is neither here nor there simply because their Gun Control agenda, no matter how they sugarcoat it, is Deeply Rooted in Racism and Genocide.

      To rattle on and ignore the history of Gun Control and fall again and again for democRat noise we all might as well adorn ourselves in sheets, pointed caps and swastikas and take a seat at the back of their bus.

    • That’s the part of the VOX article they don’t show you.

      C’mon TTAG, it’s fucken VOX. Them saying this shit won’t work is 100% certain their intent is for a bigger gun ban.

      This is shitty reporting, done by shit heads with shitty baby poopy diapers. Why the fuck would you share anything VOX on this site?

      • Montana Actual,

        While it may be entirely true that Vox is implying/calling for the Ruling Class to round-up firearm owners, the fact remains that Vox–a Far, Far Left entity–has stated publicly that universal background checks and semi-automatic rifle bans will not reduce murders to any significant degree. THAT is pure GOLD in any debate. (The most valuable argument in a debate is one that your opponent makes on your behalf.)

        That also opens another giant barn door: it illustrates that the Far, Far Left either has no idea what they are proposing or they are lying about their proposals. That also undermines their position.

        Summary: the truth is very pernicious and has this nasty habit of rearing its ugly head. We would be wise to combine such truths with emotion if we want to win this war for our inalienable rights and human dignity without having to resort to force of arms–which I would very much like to see.

        • This is the point, the admission that an AWB is theater is pretty shocking from them and their handlers are probably activating their shock collars furiously at this point.

        • Do you really think using ‘even VOX agrees…’ is going to persuade many people?

      • “Why the fuck would you share anything VOX on this site?”

        It’s a concept known a “Know the Enemy”, and that’s a very relevant subject for TTAG to report on…

        • When a quote is taken out of context it turns your objective into a vehicle of perjury. This means you don’t know shit about your enemy and just help spread their word without reading the fine print first.

        • We are way past that.

          This is NOT knowing your enemy. This is being suckered into playing their game.

    • what kind of idiots voted for a senile, serial racist and a slut whose family once owned slaves in Jamaica? then have the nerve to call us supremacist and racist? worthless users of oxygen

      • “a slut whose family once owned slaves in Jamaica?“

        A slut because she slept with a married man separated from his wife? What does that make Donald Trump, who committed adultery on all three of his wives?

        Her family owned slaves? Don’t you really mean that her ancestry includes slaves raped and impregnated by their white masters?

        One day, all that hate is going to burn you up.

  2. Evidence and facts are not relevant.
    Handgunms, nope can’t have mine until I do something stupid with it, and then maybe not. Someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me.

    • don’t be a victim. be a survivor, an overcomer, refuse to retreat. stand for something, IF it moves….shoot it!

    • If you read the Vox article in full, this dose of “truth” comes packaged in all of the usual misdirects, exaggerations, inaccuracies, and lies. It’s an argument for a national licensing scheme along the lines of: “we’re gonna need a bigger infringement.” The article also claims (based on survey data of incredibly dubious quality) that a national licensing scheme is supported by an overwhelming majority of the public. I wouldn’t get too excited about anything Vox vomits out into the public sphere. It has about as much real value as actual vomit.

      • Thanks for reading the full article. I refuse to give “clicks” to trash news sites. I suspected that the above excerpt was probably the only gem in a bucket of turds.

      • “…that a national licensing scheme is supported by an overwhelming majority of the public.”

        That already exists, and a cop can determine that with one radio call.

        Someone either is, or is not, a legally prohibited person…

  3. At least they are admitting facts now. Even though the laymen can see it is in order to push more odious violations of the second amendment.

    To that I say good luck getting those 32 states for a repeal. 😀

  4. The left needs to be more specific: how can we prove which guns are violent and which are not? I suggest we set up a big table and put on it a sampling of every gun sold in in this country. Then, we set up cameras and lock the room; no one allowed in. We will then be able to observe and record which of those guns become violent. We can, then, provide that information to the manufacturers so they can cure those weapons of their innate violent nature. Simple, right? No new laws needed. Plain and simple science

    • I already have done that… a quick check of the gun safes has never found any guns that escaped and went on a spree without me (not even the “ghosts”, unless they’re firing undetectable ghost rounds). I have noticed that they are becoming anxious to get out for more regular exercise though.

    • put 7 45acp’s in with a box of 9mm’s and when I opened the box all the 9’s were dead. Maybe gunms are different?

  5. Dems know darn well that more gun laws will do nothing to reduce gun violence. It’s about disarming the law abiding populace. Dems know that they have no chance if controlling the criminals in society. In fact they welcome the criminal element.

    • the thugs in gov’t. write laws to benefit the thugs on the street. The slaves (taxpayers) fund the stupidity. When will “we” wake up? Take back our GOD given rights to NOT be abused?

  6. A July 2019 poll by NPR found that 89% of respondents supported background checks for all gun purchases at gun shows or other private sales. An overwhelming majority of Republicans (84%) and Democrats (96%) indicated their support, suggesting there is bipartisan popular consensus on the broad topic in the public.

    Most gun owners I know personally have stated ” No law abiding citizen fears universal background checks, the Brady Bill has been doing it with new guns for decades so why not used guns also”? No one but a paranoid lunatic, or a criminal or a Trumpite insurrectionist or a person contemplating murder would be against universal background checks. Its not rocket science.

    Every civilized industrialized nation on earth has universal background checks and they have way lower rates of robberies and homicides with firearms proving such laws work very well. No law is 100 per cent effective but we do not cancel laws that are against rape, robbery or sex with children either. Mass murder in other countries is way lower as well but in Capitalvania occurs on a now daily basis by nut cases that get guns that should never have been permitted to buy them because second hand guns let them buy all the firepower they want including building ghost guns. The police tracings in California found 40% of guns confiscated by police are now ghost guns and the rise in their use has skyrocketed in all other states in the U.S. and in some places by over 3000 per cent.

    The Republicans always pandering to the Far Right lunatics are actually the gun owners worst enemies as every mass murder committed results in more and more calls for draconian gun bans and even confiscation. Mass murders will not simply go away because the far right claim they do not exist.

    The Chicago study (as well as numerous police tracings in other states) found that the majority of crime was being committed with unvetted second hand guns that had been through many hands. Criminals were obtaining guns from friends, through news paper adds, at on line internet chat rooms (legal in many states within the state of residence of both parties) from bars and flea markets and from professional gun runners dealing in used second hand guns. Gun runners buy guns in states with lax gun laws and then sell them in states with tough gun laws making existing gun laws ineffective in keeping guns out of the hands of lunatics, criminals and Trumpite racist white Nazi’s hell bent on establishing a 4th Reich in the U.S. with Herr Drumpf as its lifelong dictator. Lunatics like Marjorie Greene posing with an assault rifle and ranting against Jewish Space lasers have now become “the norm” in a Republican Party gone completely mad and only missing twisted arm bands and gas chambers and marching jack boots on cobble stone streets. The Charlottesville Trumpite torch parade Nazi’s screaming death to the Jews shocked most Americans into the realization that the rise of Nazism in the U.S by the Far Right is real and far larger than previously realized. The KKK just took on a different name i.e. the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Buggaloo Boys and other dangerous Nazi far right filth.

    The result of all this mayhem reflects badly on the majority of decent law abiding gun owners and only adds fuel to the fire for more racial gun bans by a public shaking in fear of assault rifle toting mad men hell bent on shooting up schools and or taking over the government via a beer hall putsch by Herr Drumpf and his fanatical Nazi followers with red hats proclaiming “Camp Auschwitz”

    Universal back ground checks are long overdue and without them its just pure insanity.

      • dacian uses a familiar tactic of far left propagandists, load so many falsehoods, lies, smears, hyperbole, straw-man arguments, dogmatic rhetoric and dis-information, that it would take hours to untangle the web of lies she has woven.

        Let’s look at just four words from dacian’s manifesto ” Nazi far right filth ” This particular ploy has been a favorite of leftist propagandists; rewriting history to serve their political agenda. The Nazi’s were from the Left, not the right, your agitprop does not change that fact.

        Here is a list of a few more people from the left; Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and Vladimir Lenin.

        Together these Leftist were responsible for the death of hundreds of millions.

        Leftist policies have never worked, and people like dacian must lie to advance their agenda which only brings misery and death to millions.

        • “The Nazi’s were from the Left, not the right“

          Is that why he rounded up and assassinated all the socialists, communists and trade union organizers?

          Hitler was a far right nationalist and crony capitalist who bent his knee to the wealthy industrialists in Germany. No one nationalized Krupp steel or IG Farben or BASF or BayerAG, They all survived the war with their fortunes and properties intact and are now profiting by poisoning Americans with their new nerve agents.

        • Miner another far left propagandist doubles down; “Is that why he rounded up and assassinated all the socialists, communists and trade union organizers?”

          Yes Miner, the revolution ALWAYS eats their own. (You might want to read that again Miner)

          Trotsky and even the so called incorruptible Robespierre found out the hard way.

          However, I am not sure what is more demented, your question pretending that Hitler acted sanely and rationally or the surprise of leftist like you when the revolution ends up devouring you.

          Leftist policies have never worked, and people like
          d̶a̶c̶i̶a̶n̶ Miner49er must lie to advance their agenda which only brings misery and death to millions.

    • Ghost gunm crimes hasn’t skyrocketed in the state I reside in. Where’d you get that info?
      Do you just make stuff up?

      • Yes, ghost guns are increasing being used in shootings across the country:

        In July 2020, an individual who was prohibited from possessing guns allegedly murdered two people in Pennsylvania using a homemade 9mm handgun.9
        In November 2019, a 16-year-old shot five of his classmates at Saugus High School in California—two of them fatally—using a homemade handgun, before fatally shooting himself.10
        In August 2019, a shooter used a homemade gun kit to build a .223-caliber firearm that he later used to fire 41 shots in 32 seconds in a bar in Dayton, Ohio, shooting 26 people and killing nine.11
        In 2017, in Northern California, a man prohibited from possessing firearms ordered kits to build AR-15-style rifles. On November 13, he initiated a series of shootings that began with fatally shooting his wife at home, followed by a rampage the next day during which he fired at multiple people in several different locations, including an elementary school, killing five people and injuring dozens more.12
        In 2013, a shooter opened fire in Santa Monica, California, shooting 100 rounds, killing five people, and injuring several others at a community college using a homemade AR-15 rifle. Reporting indicates the shooter had previously tried to purchase a firearm from a licensed gun dealer and failed a background check, potentially indicating why he opted to order parts to build a gun instead.13
        Law enforcement officials around the country are sounding the alarm about the dramatic increase in the recovery of ghost guns at crime scenes in their communities. ATF reported that approximately 10,000 ghost guns were recovered across the country in 2019.14 Ghost guns have also been illegally trafficked to Mexico.15 In addition:

        In 2019, Washington, D.C., police recovered 115 ghost guns, a 360 percent increase from 2018, when they recovered 25 ghost guns, and a 3,733 percent increase from 2017, when only three such firearms were recovered.16
        In 2019, ATF reported recovering 117 ghost guns in Maryland with almost 25 percent recovered from Baltimore alone. Ghost gun recoveries in the state then tripled in 2020.17
        According to law enforcement in Philadelphia, ghost gun recoveries in that city rose 152 percent from 2019 to 2020.18
        The special agent in charge of the ATF Los Angeles Field Division reported in January 2021 that 41 percent of the division’s cases involve ghost guns, and a May 2019 statewide analysis in California found that 30 percent of all guns recovered in connection with a crime in the state did not have serial numbers.19
        In addition, an investigation by The Trace found that ghost guns are increasingly becoming the weapon of choice for violent white supremacists and anti-government extremists.20

        • Dacian, would you care to provide citations to your footnotes ? Also , most
          of the numbers stated could be shown to be incorrect by a fifth grade math student.

        • dacian, You cut and pasted from one of the most biased, prejudiced, distorted, warped, slanted, embittered, and predisposed Far Far Leftist site on the web…(Anti)american progress.

          Well done propagandist.

        • “ In addition, an investigation by The Trace found that ghost guns are increasingly becoming the weapon of choice for violent white supremacists and anti-government extremists.20”

          Rephrased more accurately: Unregistered firearms have become popular with Trump voters.

          You ca tell it is propaganda because they talk about “violent white supremacists”and “anti-government extremists”. A lot of anti-government types out there – but anymore they are no longer the extremists, but becoming the mainstream across much of the country. And there are very few white supremacists any more in most of the country, and tey certainly haven’t been violent. The violence over the last year or two has been 99.99% on the left, with AntiFA, BLM, etc.

          And of course, unregistered hand made firearms are mostly not “Ghost Guns”, which are named that because they are hard to detect. Any statistics which use deliberately misleading labels such as those by Trace, are immediately highly suspect.

    • Explain why the overwhelming majority of deaths and shootings are limited to just a few zip codes.

    • “An overwhelming majority of Republicans (84%) and Democrats (96%) indicated their support, suggesting there is bipartisan popular consensus on the broad topic in the public.”

      Once it is laid out *exactly* what that entails, support drops to well under 50 percent…

      • The Brady Bill worked with new gun sales and so it would work with second hand sales as well. As usual you ignore History but history does not lie its there for all to see but only the sane accept it.

        • “…only the sane accept it.”

          Having read your past comments as “Vlad,” I got a pretty good laugh out of that little joke. Please, tell me another one.

        • It’s been a while since you posted lies here, jerry. How’s things in Ohio these days?

        • California has had universal background check for all hand gun sales since 2000. It hasn’t affected the crime rate, as the VOX article admits. Many of the second hand sales to which you refer are illegal sales that would not be swept up with a universal background check law. Do you really think that a gun trafficker is going to start doing background checks on the guns he/she sells to gang bangers? Or have any effect on the sale of stolen firearms? Your own argument reflects that there are people who are evading background checks because they will not pass, and they still will not pass even with a universal background check law. Straw sales will continue. Black market sales will continue to occur, just as they have been occurring for many decades. Crime, and especially violent crime, will continue, just as it has for millennia.

        • “As usual you ignore History but history does not lie its there for all to see but only the sane accept it.”

          The one ignoring history is *you*.

          EVERY time firearm confiscation was planned and executed, first they REQUIRED registration of all the guns people owned. Then later, they knocked on doors and confiscated the guns.

          “Universal Background Checks” on all gun sales, retail and private, is GUN REGISTRATION.

          Always, after registration, comes the confiscation. No sane dictator allows the little people to have the tools to remove the dictator.

          The second ammendment was written to ensure that the people would ALWAYS have the tools they needed to violently overthrow a despot that made his way into power.

          No Universal Background Checks. That’s the first step to enslave a population…

    • You could have spared yourself the trouble of copying-and-pasting that screed, had you simply winnowed it down to its core: “Government guns good. Registered ‘civilian’ guns slightly OK for now, but we’ll work on that. Unregistered, icky ‘civilian’ guns bad. If you have nothing to hide, you shouldn’t fear government intrusion into your underwear drawer without a warrant, at any time of day or night, and the 2nd Amendment is for organized militias.”

      There, now. Isn’t that better?

      Now, who ARE you, really?

    • would be much easier and cheaper to shoot all the communist. Restore the republic that Abe Lincoln destroyed. make men free again. Don’t threaten or abuse me, and I won’t put a hole in you. deal?

      • “would be much easier and cheaper to shoot all the communist.“

        Congratulations, you would be following Adolf Hitler’s plan for world domination. No surprises there.

        Advocating for the Nazis makes you a ?

  7. His argument completely falls apart. He’s advocating licenses, which is just a more expensive background check (which he’s already pointed out as worthless). Permit systems don’t seem to help in Chicago or New York. The only difference is the proposed check let’s the police chief deny the permit if the applicant is the wrong color, wrong political party, wrong sexuality, not a big enough donor, etc. In other words, more Jim Crow, cronyism, and corruption that we see with other may issue permits.

    • Of course it does not help in Chicago or New York because nothing works without a Federal Law that would require all states to abide by it. Its not rocket science

      Civilized Nations do indeed require gun owner licensing and it works because it requires a mental health check, training in gun safety, training in gun laws, safe storage and of course a long thorough background check. Gun control history proves it is superior to what we do not have because their system works while we essentially have no workable system.

      • Personally, I think people should be required to be educated on how the government works, and to pass a test before being allowed to vote.

        And let’s deal with a very inconvenient truth here, based on ample evidence on YouTube, some people should never be allowed to reproduce.

        But they do, because it is their right to do so.

        Guns are like that, a right. Once you learn to exercise your coping skills to accept that fact, your blood pressure will be far lower… 🙂

        • dacian agitprops “Gun control history proves it is superior to what we do not have because their system works” and she writes “Civilized Nations do indeed require gun owner licensing and it works”

          You are a pure propagandist dacian. Joseph Goebbels would be proud.

          However, the truth is the history of gun control is one of death for the people who were disarmed. This is well documented.

        • Just remember that because of demographic changes, most of these “civilized nations” will be caliphates within the next 100-200 years.

          Then you will see some real “civilization”.

      • I stopped reading at “civilized”.

        You mean peaceful slavery? Fuck outta here.

        Freedom is dangerous. Go live amongst your “civilized” nations and leave the freedom to us savages. Fucking tools. I’ll bet you say dumb shit like that and spout off about stolen land at the same time, huh, hypocrite.

        • Wasn’t Germany also “so civilized” in the 1930s and 1940s?

          Even the Soviet Union tried to put on an air of civility and culture, but it was a very thin veneer.

      • I’m totally comfortable with being nothing more than an intelligent, bipedal, territorial, tribal, semi-arboreal ape. Because science.

        Part of that is admitting that “civilization” is a thin facade of supposedly advanced culture plastered over the stark reality of our nature and that therefore being “more civilized” is naught but an illusion we sell ourselves as part of an overarching lie that we’re different than animals and not subject to the laws of nature.

        • If that were true then we would be allowed to murder someone when his dog pisses on our lawn. In reality most people do indeed obey laws that is why they are there.

        • Like I said, freedom is violent.

          Keep your dog off my lawn unless I permit it. Get it? You seem to, but you seem scared of it. Good. If you aren’t scared you aren’t paying attention. What’s worse? Being scared of big government and trying to do right until they decide you did wrong or being free and making your own choices? Every action has a consequence. Kill that dog owner and maybe his people in the hills saw it. In civilized society, kill an intruder with actual criminal intent and try to prove your innocence, usually better suited by your financial ability.

      • Really dacian?

        All we need is a law?

        How about a law that makes murder illegal? Would that help?

        • We do not eliminate laws against murder because they are not 100 per cent effective so your argument is non sequitor. Just think how much worse it would be if murder were legal. The same can be true in regards to not having a universal background check. We have already seen that the Brady Bill each year stops thousands of criminals from purchasing new guns and it would do exactly the same with used guns as well. The supply of second hand guns would literally start to drastically dry up overnight when people realized that they would be jailed and fined for not going through a licensed dealer when they sold their personal guns.

        • …. And what prisons are all of the “thousands of persons stopped by the Brady Law” currently residing in ? Oh yeah, since lying on the 4473 is nearly NEVER prosecuted, it’s one of your non sequiturs. Here’s a thought, enforce just a small percentage of the laws already on the fucking books… oh and maybe make analcranial inversions of legislators the next pandemic to find a vaccine for.

        • Who said anything about eliminating laws against murder? Mrs. Non Sequitur(correctly spelled…Perhaps you shouldn’t use big Latin words you can not correctly spell). Just pointing out your complete fallacy that criminals will obey laws.

          Because like most leftist, you say we are just one more law away. Just give us leftist a little more power and then our policies will finally work. Leftist have been selling this for decades in the decaying urban cities. The result, like California, people are fleeing.

          You chided Geoff above about ignoring History, yet you attempt to weave this fanciful story that what ever you proclaim “it would work” ignoring human nature and history which says otherwise.

          Gun Control disarms the law abiding. It’s an absolute truth.

      • Most people obey laws that they internalize and ignore those that they don’t. A distinction with a difference.

        But then if we have to go back to the differences between obliged and obligated we’re regressing and I don’t feel like rehashing all that.

      • Really? Are you blissfully unaware that the vast majority of legal gun owners. i.e., those who have passed a background check, commit no crimes? Sure there are outliers, just as there are everywhere. Vegas dude had passed a multitude of background checks, and no one, including his girlfriend, had any idea what he was about to do until he did it. Aurora dude was fine until he wasn’t (adult onset paranoid schizophrenia). In Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, and places in Africa, men commit mass murder because of religious fanaticism, and on a couple of occasions, they have brought that fanaticism here.Or more often, to France, which has very strict gun laws. Meanwhile, 40 million Americans committed no violent crimes whatsoever. Punish the majority for the sins of the few? Why is that morally or rationally sound?

  8. Tactically admitting to facts as part of pushing licensing because that works so well in Mexico.

    Whatever. That requires ID, just like Oregon’s new masking rules, DATZ WRAYCYST! #NoJusticeNoPeace #WhosStreetsOurStreets #DoesThisLookInfectedBrah? #SomeOtherProgtardNonsense

    • Mexico is not governed by the government but by the drug cartels. If the Mexican government was not corrupt it could wipe out about 90 per cent of the drug cartel overnight as they know exactly who they are and where they are.

      In Japan the laws are enforced and even the Japanese Mafia does not use firearms anymore. Yes the Japanese Mafia still exist but the do not kill people or terrorize the populous with firearms.

      • That’s a cool set of stories there bro. You gonna do it all up in a single collection or publish them as separate articles?

        The kiddies and adult retards will love this, especially if you put in some cool drawings.

        • Bless his heart, isn’t he ‘special’?

          I do wish that we had some way of identifying these ‘blast from the past’ people when they arise from the ashes and start posting really stupid stuff again. This one really sounds familiar, in a nasty sort of way.

        • Is this Fucken guy a special Ed version of Miner49er? Like a shitty clone of Rick that only passes because Jerry is so naive…

      • “Yes the Japanese Mafia still exist but the do not kill people or terrorize the populous…”

        You are delusional.

        What do you think a Yazuka (that’s the Japan organized crime syndicate) does to someone who doesn’t repay the Yazuka loan shark?

        Game, set, and match… 🙂

  9. Dan Z taking shit out of context. Stupid. What a stupid fucking thing to share here.

  10. As a sidenote, don’t you just love the picture of King Dribblecup, with his now ubiquitous earpiece, being fed answers to the simplest questions… usually while wearing that same ” deer in the headlights” expression ?

  11. Hmm. I wonder who is on the other end of the Child Sniffer and Chief’s ear-piece in that photo. One of his handlers, I’m sure. Probably someone desperately reminded the senile old fool not to go off script unless he ends up threatening someone again. Kind of like how he threatened to run over reports with a truck if they ask him about the recent rocket attacks between Israel and Palestine

    • Oh, don’t be so judgmental!

      After all, who among us has never wanted to run over a reporter with a truck, or sniff the hair of an adult woman we barely know if at all, or feel up small children in public, or collect millions in bribes and graft from foreign governments and businesses without paying taxes? Aren’t you being just a little harsh? “Let ye who hasn’t threatened a foreign government into firing a prosecutor you don’t like because he’s investigating your corruption cast the first stone!”

  12. Who is this Dacian guy?

    He must still be dreaming while in the clutches of the Matrix of liberal ineptitude and idiocy.
    I guess it must be difficult to think in a logical fashion for someone who espouses the radical ideological rules of “…feelings…”.

    Go away and play, Dacian.
    Adults are talking.

    • The last Dacians I had heard of was in ancient history as a kid (so, so long ago) … they got their asses handed to them by the Romans back in 100 a.d. or so after a game of chicken. So, a history of not clearly assessing the situation goes way back !!

      • Actually the Dacia’s beat the Romans twice before being conquered in the 3rd invasion by the Romans who wanted their silver mines. Trajan’s column commemorated the 3rd war but made no mention of the Romans losing twice before that. And no game of chicken was ever played either as it was all out warfare in all three wars. Your clearly deficient in world history but par for the course on this forum.

  13. People here are arguing with what is probably a high school girl who gets a pat on her busy head for every “crazy right wing” response she gets. Her whole class is probably doing this with different blogs, even if she is the only pet (as far as she knows).

    • No. It’s a previous identity. A sad excuse for a progressive none the less. Not even welcome on Reddit so they come her to vent. It’s definitely the high school mentality, but the sad part is vlad’s been here and lost this war numerous times before and still can’t graduate.

  14. Regarding the photo accompanying the article: does anyone recall any other president needing a speaker in his ear to do a press conference? This senile incompetent needs to be hardwired to a handler lest he start to spout gibberish. Why not have Jeff Dunham stick his hand up his ass and work his mouth directly?

  15. Here was the choice:
    DJT as in “Donald John Trump”


    as in “dementia joe, senile pedophile.

    Hmmmm, tough choice, I guess, for a large number of totally inept and mentally decrepit democrats, who decided that “feelings” is much better than logical thought.

  16. A licensing program to buy firearms and ammo. I think the article is way off. Look at Cook County and Chicago, IL. Illinois has the FOID card aka a license to own and buy firearms, even purchase ammo. The Illinois FOID does not work period. Look at the crime data for Cook County and Chicago, IL because it has not really changed since the high crime rate of the late 1960s to now. The VOX article is full of crap spreading false propaganda about licensing programs for firearms and ammo. The Illinois FOID has been around since 1968 and does not impact crime at all in Cook County and Chicago, IL.

    • Thracian, at 14:11 said, “Leftist policies have never worked, and people like dacian must lie to advance their agenda which only brings misery and death to millions.” An excellent summary of dacian’s comments.

      Arguing with the dacian types is a total waste of time.

    • Their argument relies largely on the supposed success of their darling MA, but of course they don’t inform readers that the difference in “gun death” rate between MA and lax NH is entirely difference in suicides committed using guns. Comoaring just homicide rates, and NH beats MA most years.

  17. Vox: Democrats’ Gun Control Priorities – Background Checks and ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban – Won’t Stop ‘Gun Violence’

    Did anyone who has their head screwed on properly ever believe that it would?
