Hypertrophile saidI just wonder how all those guns would protect the convention from a madman with his thumb on a kill switch.
I wonder too. It wont at all. The request wont be granted. But its obviously is a policy ploy. They are trying to highlight a policy they believe in by the Change.org petition. Assuming it is legitimate. To me it would seem to be a nice contrived plot to put such a request up there to politically embarrass the convention.
But i cant help to touch your baseless claim. So, where's the outrage from the gun community when their own allow their guns, unintentionally or otherwise, to fall into the hands of criminals.
So gun owners are not outraged when there guns are stolen ?
Personal handguns represent a minority among crimes committed by guns.
The criminal problem in major cities are not created by legal guns bought in gun stores. They represent actually the minority of guns and are usually obtained illegally. Stolen, re imported, etc. Making all of the silly laws and the wasted energy on the left for naught.
You said above "Who had possession of illegally obtained firearms before they were illegally obtained".
See you just filled in the blanks with pablum and taken it on faith that illegal guns all were "owned" by someone at some point. They are usually re imported illegally bought and sold on the black market. Just as in Europe, England and other areas of the world.
The left is obsessed with guns, however far more dangerous and obvious things are permitted.
30 people per day are shot and killed in the US across ALL AGES Groups, however Older adults ( over 65) 15 were killed in just that age demographic per day in car accidents. The number is up 34% since 1999, despite safer cars. Other demographics have gone down.
Despite tougher laws in California, you have drivers in your own Palm Springs, possibly your neighbor driving vehicles when they are legally blind , on dementia medication etc. Physicans can only refer to the DMV for a "test" .In Palm Springs your neighbor is more likely to kill you with his car, than any gun.
