The Huffy/Schwinn Lobby is not one to be taken lightly.
So are we to assume that you would have all households to be firearms-free? Any other parts of the constitution you want to do away with? It seems that the JFP wants to do away with the 2nd amendment all together. I recall a piece about a year ago in which you lamented the fact that JPD officers were telling citizens to arm themselves because the police cannot be everywhere all the time. Well you can arm yourself with a frying pan but the rest of us will choose otherwise.
Also from wiki- An assault rifle is a fully automatic rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine, not to be confused with so called assault weapons. Assault rifles are the standard infantry weapons in most modern armies. Assault rifles are categorized in between light machine guns, which are intended more for sustained automatic fire in a light support role, and submachine guns, which fire a pistol cartridge rather than a rifle cartridge.
They are also handy for wild hog hunting. And when I was shopping, I found that Academy had better prices than Bass Pro, FWIW.
I don't think anyone with half a lick of sense would argue that, but seeing into the mind of someone is a bit tricky. A LOT of tragedies could be avoided if that was as easily done as said. And again, by definition, assault rifles are fully automatic. You can't buy one at Bass Pro or Academy.
Property owners have every right to determine what is acceptable on their premises. Who the hell said anything about letting anyone and everyone watch a movie with a pistol in their lap? I was merely pointing out that the majority of mass shootings occur where the shooter knows that no one else is likely to be armed. It creates a target rich environment, so to speak.
How does that not fit the narrative? The theatre complex had signs saying " firearms prohibited", much like the ones you see at Northpark. It doesn't matter how many people had CCW permits if they left their guns in their vehicles.
'There are, so far as I know, no cases where mass shootings have been stopped by an armed bystander."
Probably because nearly all mass shootings occur in "gun free" zones, i.e. schools or places like the movie theatre that had posted signs prohibiting CCP holders from carrying. There are weekly instances of armed citizens intervening in robbery attempts and other crimes successfully. Most of which go unreported by the media for some reason.
