Look...the legality of full auto is keeping them out of mass shootings. Simple as that.

Legality matters

Legality matters in mass shootings.... I mean I get what you're saying, but its not like the law is preventing anyone from getting their hands on one if they really want.

According to the BATFE, there are over half a million fully automatic rifles in the hands of civilians in the US. If you wanted one, and had the money, they wouldn't be hard to get. Legality or not.

And, as you can tell by the statistic, if full auto rifles were an issue to the public, you'd know it.

Full auto guns are extremely difficult to get in the US, I've tried, lots. I've owned lots of black market guns, I've never even come across the option to buy a full auto rifle.

If you think it's easy for any American to get a full auto machine gun you're very wrong

If it was easy...they'd be used in mass shootings

You just have to know the right people, PT.

You want a full auto? Let me know, I'll give you a number to a guy who knows a guy, if you know what I'm saying.

Tighter gun laws won't solve the problem, but it will lessen incidents like these.

Less guns in hands, less problems. It is that simple.

If 1 person in 10 has a gun, is it more likely a gun problem happens than if 8 out of 10 have one?

Argue all you want, but people in Australia don't have any fear of this happening. I'm sure other countries with tighter gun laws agree too.

Or like Chris Rock said, keep the guns, just make the bullets $5,000 a piece.

Legality matters...and your go to 'France' of why legality doesn't matter has a fcking microfraction of the gun deaths that the US has and it's all because of legality reasons.

I'm not even against the right to own...certain freedoms come with a price, and I can accept that. But pretending laws do nothing is stupid.

SSRI drugs

If you're taking SSRI depression drugs, you should not be able to buy or own guns.
UK2K what do you think?

There's a picture that's supposedly him at the women's march wearing a "p*ssy-hat". Who knows if it's actually real.
