Re: “Gun Control Supporters Concede Defeat on Background Checks

Anyone who says they "don't understand what the issue with background checks is", let me help you out. It's this simple, I've known my closest friends for over 20 years, I know their habits and behaviors better than the govt (state or federal) ever will. I would never sell or lend a firearm to someone that I didn't trust, or trusted but knew they probably aren't appropriately safe with my property for one reason or another. There isn't a law that will make us all safer, it's called PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. If you are waiting for the govt to pass a law that makes violent people non violent, you will likely play the role of victim all your life. Take an interest in your well being and don't force your decisions and or stances on others. Use polite conversation to explain your views while avoiding arguments that don't serve a positive purpose. In 2011 VT had 5 murders I believe (I wrote a paper on it a year ago so my numbers may be slightly off) with 3 of them committed with a firearm. VT doesn't have state gun laws, they only ban suppressors (not sure why, that seems silly). VT has access to countless types of firearms and for some reason Vermonters aren't going around killing each other. I'm not sure why, maybe it's something in the water because everything i've read, of course, would lead me to believe that more guns = more murder. How do you guys do it? You have shown that talking point to be quite false.

Re: “Gun Control Supporters Concede Defeat on Background Checks

I live in Albany, N.Y. People of VT do not give an inch on this proposal. In NY we have had an assault weapons ban in place since 1994. That wasn't good enough. Now we cannot own a gun with a detachable magazine that has a muzzle break or flash suppressor, it can't have a collapsible stock or even a thumbhole stock (NY State safe act). Our rifles also cannot have a pistol grip on them at all, if the magazine detaches. Cuomo put in place a 7 round magazine limit, that has since been deemed unconstitutional by a federal judge, but the NY state legislature hasn't gotten around to changing it yet.
