I'm somewhat concerned . . .
Are we sure Girard Damien Saenz isn't one of John "Hannibal" Smith's aliases?
Hmm, illegal gun sales on an industrial scale. Are we sure we don't need to tighten the gun sales rules?
You mean the rules this guy wasn't following anyway?
This guy broke the law. Now we need to make what he did double plus illegal!
I have nothing to say on the matter until it is ajudicated.
Damn, lotsa nice pieces in those piles.
Yep, much tighter enforcement needed, for sure. Registering every firearm would certainly have caught this type of operation. I'd also like to see guns only kept at gun clubs, a $10,000 per gun per year tax, and a yearly 1000 hours of safety training where if you miss one you lose your license and are banned from having any firearms for a decade. If you can't follow the rules then you are unfit to be allowed a gun. Oh, and let use not forget the 1000 question yearly test where one wrong answer means you fail; taking the test should cost not less than $10,000 and be required to be repeated yearly.
Watch them be forced to drop the charges and give him the guns back.
California has gun registration.
All you have to do is change the Constitution, because none of that would pass muster.
Why the pretense? Why not just have the courage to say you want to end gun ownership since that's what your "plan" entails?
And all firearms except for single shot would be banned. Truly single shot, as in you shoot it once then you have to throw it away and buy a new one.
Bullets are $10,000 a piece, require 24 month advance purchase, and are limited to 100 feet per second.
Hmmm . . . under current laws, would a laser be considered a firearm? There's no projectile involved, no powder or bang . . .
Their dependability is somewhat lacking, though.
The rules that let him buy thousands of guns legally to sell illegally. Yes, those rules you fucking guntarded moron. We could tighten those rules since no person needs thousands of guns. We do the same thing with painkillers and we have people selling them because no one needs that large of a prescription.
You sir are what we call a guntard, and your position allows for illegal sales from legal sales.
Under many codes, yes.
Actually, technically a laser does have a projectile. They are called photons. Think of it like this. If you got hit with a atom of lead you are not going to get hurt, but when you get hit with a large mass of those atoms you get a hole in you. When you take the normal number of photos omitted from a light giving source and get hit with that it does not cause much harm, but when you have many more of them in a given space hitting you at the same time they do more damage.
Oh, and many codes are not limited to a combustible explosion for propellant. Many codes include force in their definition, and the words capable of doing harm to the description of the projectiles. It would probably cover lasers in court.
Yes, and don't forget the manditory $100 million insurance policy for when one of you gun nuts goes crazy.
State level registration is worthless without a national database.
How about requiring a small explosive charge surgically implanted at the base of the skull that can be remotely detonated by the police in order to purchase a gun?
An excellent idea. Remotely deactivated gun nuts! :b:
Bonus points if microwaves or metal detectors routinely set them off "on accident".
If I have to have insurance on my car in case of accidents or to cover the cost of injury to others from my registered automobile then perhaps we should have manditory insurance on deadly weapons to cover the injuries they may cause by mistake or through piss poor operation of that device.
I don’t like the blue barrels, but the ones with the stocks made out of what looks like Fordite or colored pencils are pretty cool looking.
I have a drill, perhaps we should start on @Forbin our village guntard. I am sure even high as a kite I couldn't hit brain matter with a footlong bit.
You know you don’t need insurance if you’re not operating a car on a public road, right?
I mean as far as gun control goes, requiring insurance for concealed carry or open carry (with exemptions within, say 500 feet of a range or shooting club), is not the most onerous idea in the world, but what would it actually do? It would make law-abiding gun owners more hesitant to draw their weapons in a crisis situation, and little to nothing else. Now, that might not be a bad thing, but it seems to me that that’s one of the least of the problems with gun use.
This, also, was not me...
This guy led police on a merry chase that ended about a half mile away from where I work (we could hear the helicopters buzzing around while it was going on). The police shot the car up pretty good, and they fished the guy out after an hour of him being pretty still. I believe the lady driving the car was an innocent person, not involved with this guy, who was wanted for murdering a liquor store clerk a few nights ago. Not sure if the guy's dead or not--it didn't look promising for him when they loaded him into the ambulance--but I can almost admire the panache of bringing (what looks like) a Smith and Wesson .500 Magnum as his crime gun.
Not under Federal law. The ATF defines them as Rifles, Shotguns, Firearms, Machine Guns, Destructive Devices, and "Any other weapon." A hypothetical phaser wouldn't meet the definition of any of those because even Destructive Devices and "Any other weapon" still specify that a physical projectile be launched by a chemical reaction.
Interesting that both the guns held by the characters in the City Heat poster are anachronistic for a film that takes place in 1933: Reynolds has a more modern double-action revolver (S&W 586?), and Eastwood looks like he has Dirty Harry's Model 29. Neither character uses the guns shown in the poster in the movie; the art department must've used source photos from other movies.
Lasers, however, do have a classification which considers them to be dangerous weapons, even at less than lethal power. You shine a laser pointer at a pilot, and you're trouble if you get caught. No shit.
