Translation, just do something so it looks like it accomplishes....when it's crystal clear it doesn't.
Not doing something would be the same thing because neither is crystal clear at this point. To make it more clear though, studies can help, which is why I liked the part about the funding for gun violence studies. Also, I think people on both sides agree on the background check thing.

No translation required, as my comment was not in any way confusing or cryptic.

I will however attempt to translate yours:


I don't like gun control, common sense, anything not done by the guys I listen to, or understand the second amendment at all. I have never seen or heard of the results of the only case ever to reach the supreme court concerning this issue, do not know what a tyrant actually is, and have fox news on speed dial.

See what happens when you pretend to know the mind of someone else?

Was he responding to you or the OP/news story?

Dayum...started sooner than I expected:

"
Unconstitutional Texas Bill Would Make Enforcing Federal Gun Laws A Felony

<img title="Unconstitutional Texas Bill Would Make Enforcing Federal Gun Laws A Felony" alt="" align="left">Ian Millhiser, News Report: A Texas lawmaker says he plans to file the Firearms Protection Act, which would make any federal laws that may be passed by Congress or imposed by Presidential order which would ban or restrict ownership of semi-automatic firearms or limit the size of gun magazines illegal in the state. Republican Rep. Steve Toth says his measure also calls for felony criminal charges to be filed against any federal official who tries to enforce the rule in the state. Strangely, Toth does not appear to question that his bill is unconstitutional. Rather, he told The Chad Hasty Show on Monday that his goal is to undermine the Constitution itself."

It seems extremely odd to me that so many are against 'trying' to make life safer.
Surely if there is the slightest chance that lives can be saved then thats a good thing isnt it? The answers usually given about infringing 'my' right etc etc is a rather inward looking one isnt it? Why are people so against the idea of having a safe place to live in?
Please dont say it is already safe thanks to having guns in most homes/cars/handbags and please dont quote ratio numbers because anywhere that has 506 firearm related deaths in one year in one city IS a violent place to be.

He isn't trying to make life safer he is trying to strip liberty.

Though you are welcome to this opinion, it is exactly that. As he clearly stated these actions were intended to make us safer, it can be assumed this is the intent. While it is equally clear you see it as an attempt to destroy American Liberties, I would point out that your liberties are far from absolute...otherwise we would live as anarchists.

Granted, you would not be at liberty to fire 30 rounds of ammunition per minute. You may even lose the liberty to defend yourself from a platoon of soldiers, or a mob with guns.

But you will also lose the legal liberty to massacre innocents en mass with a weapon designed purposefully to do only that.
