If you are afraid of a background check, that’s you telling yourself that you shouldn’t own a gun.

Who is a pro abortionist?

Who is a pro abortionist?
“Pro abortion” is a right-wing dog whistle.
There is only pro-choice and anti-choice regarding abortion.

Who is a pro abortionist?
“Under a new law that just took effect in New York, a child may be aborted up to the due date or even during the birth itself. If that child survives the attempted abortion and is born alive, that child may be murdered on sight by an abortionist to “complete” the abortion”
Democrats are evil people….

Who is a pro abortionist?
Most Democrats… “Under a new law that just took effect in New York, a child may be aborted up to the due date or even during the birth itself. If that child survives the attempted abortion and is born alive, that child may be murdered on sight by an abortionist to “complete” the abortion” Democrats are evil people….
Democrats are evil people but lying ass trumptard shits are just misguided?
Being pro choice and pro abortion are different things that you are far too dumb to understand. Also, you’re suggesting by omitting the circumstances of that law that any mother can abort any baby at the time of birth and that is bullshit. But then that’s your specialty, right?
What a fucking fool you are.

Meanwhile, back to guns. . .
As gun ownership goes up by state, so does youth suicide, study finds
Youth suicides happen more often in US states with high rates of household gun ownership, a recent study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found.
According to the study, in the 10 states with the highest youth suicide rates, 53% of households owned guns.
In the 10 states with the lowest youth suicide rates, only 20% of households owned guns.
Researchers from Boston University School of Public Health found that for each 10 percentage-point increase in a state’s rate of household gun ownership, the youth suicide rate went up by nearly 27%.
(Reuters Health) – Youth suicides happen more often in US states with high rates of household gun ownership, a recent study found.
In the 10 states with the highest youth suicide rates, 53% of households owned guns. In the 10 states with the lowest youth suicide rates, only 20% of households owned guns, according to the study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
Researchers from Boston University School of Public Health analyzed household gun ownership in all 50 states in 2004 and youth suicide rates between 2005 and 2015.
The highest rate of household gun ownership in 2004 was in Wyoming (65.5%); the lowest was in Hawaii (10.2%).
Over the next 10 years, the youth suicide rate ranged from a high of 15.2 per 100,000 youth in Alaska to a low of 2.6 per 100,000 in New Jersey.
After accounting for more than a dozen sociodemographic and health factors that can contribute to suicide risk – such as depression, alcoholism, substance abuse, and education – the researchers found that for each 10 percentage-point increase in a state’s rate of household gun ownership, the youth suicide rate went up by nearly 27%.
Higher levels of household gun ownership were associated with higher rates of overall youth suicide – not necessarily suicide by firearm, the research team found.
Dr. Michael Siegel, the senior author of the study, told Reuters Health that while earlier studies have found household firearm ownership to be linked with youth suicide rates at the state level, the link could potentially be explained by those households simply having a higher prevalence of people with depression, suicidal ideation or suicidal behaviors.
“We found that the relationship persisted even after controlling for these variables,” Siegel said in an email. “This suggests that the association is due to the increased availability and access to a highly lethal means of suicide.”
Lowering the prevalence of household gun ownership might help prevent youth suicides, the authors suggest.
Thank you for looking out for our kids, NRA. (Hey Harpo, that’s dripping, scathing sarcasm.)

How Americans really feel about gun control
(The following are excerpts from the article. They are completely in context.)
Spring 2017 surveys show 89% of Americans — including gun-owners and non-gun owners — tend to agree on one thing: the mentally ill should be prevented from purchasing guns.
But Trump saw fit to allow them to buy guns.
The so-called “gun show loophole,” through which people can purchase firearms without background checks through private sales and gun shows, is similarly non-controversial. Surveys show 84% of US adults — including 77% of gun owners and 87% of non-gun owners — believe the loophole should be closed.
But the NRA fights tooth and nail to keep such loopholes open and so do many congressmen who are recipients of NRA funds.
Another 83% of American adults believe people on the FBI’s no-fly list should be blocked from buying guns. But civil liberties groups have decried previous attempts to push such legislation through Congress, arguing the no-fly list is arbitrary, frequently inaccurate, and discriminatory against Muslim-Americans.
I think that the solution is to fix the faults of the no-fly list and then use it to block those on it from buying guns nor allow gun ownership to be grandfathered in.
The major disagreements begin when assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines come into play. Fewer than half of gun owners favor banning assault-style weapons, compared to 77% of non-gun owners, while those numbers are 44% to 74%, respectively, for banning high-capacity magazines.
If you need a high capacity magazine to hunt Bambi you should be allowed to handle a weapon. You’re a danger to yourself and everyone around you.
The National Rifle Association’s lobbying power is a similarly polarizing issue. Just 19% of US gun owners say they belong to the National Rifle Association — fewer than one-fifth of all the gun owners in the country.
So a supposed non-profit with 19% membership of American citizens and a shit pot full of money (some from Russia?) enforce their extremely biased view of the 2nd Amendment.
But 44% of American adults believe the NRA has too much influence over gun legislation. Meanwhile, 40% believe it has just the right amount of influence, and 15% believe it has too little.
These are interesting and surprising figures. I would venture that this is due to an effective propaganda arm of the NRA as well as Republican congressmen who, by virtue of their gun rhetoric become a tool of that propaganda arm.
Those beliefs appear split along party lines, even among gun owners themselves. Sixty percent of Democratic gun owners believe the NRA has too much influence, while 67% of Republican gun owners believe it has just the right amount of influence.
Ah, Republicans. Now it all makes sense.
Gun ownership in America has actually been declining for years — yet gun sales are at historic highs.
Per Wikipedia: Compared to 22 other high-income nations, the U.S. gun-related murder rate is 25 times higher. Although it has half the population of the other 22 nations combined, the U.S. had 82 percent of all gun deaths, 90 percent of all women killed with guns, 91 percent of children under 14 and 92 percent of young people between ages 15 and 24 killed with guns.
This suggests that America’s dwindling group of gun owners are stocking up on firearms more than ever. In fact, the average US gun owner possesses eight guns.
For hunting I can understand an owner having multiple long guns but for self protection, owning more than 3 guns makes a farce of that.
Among gun owners, 67% say protection is a major reason (as opposed to hunting, sport shooting, collecting, or job-related reasons).
See my comments, above.
Nearly three-quarters of gun owners believe owning a gun is essential to their personal freedom.
If you need a gun to be free you need to move to a different neighborhood.
In general, 55% of Americans want gun laws to be more strict, 10% say they should be less strict, and 34% want to keep them as they are now. It remains to be seen if those numbers will go up after another deadly mass shooting.
The above assumes there will be another mass shooting. This was written in February of 2018 shortly after the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Since then there have been 16 more shootings in 2018 and so far, 2 in 2019. The easiest prophecy to make is, there will be more mass shootings in the U.S.
When reasonable people call for reasonable gun control we are called gun grabbers (even though most of us are not calling for a ban on all guns) and are told that gun control will not work in the U.S. The only reason reasonable gun control will not work in the U.S. is because of unreasonable gun nuts and the bribery of congressmen by the NRA.February 10, 2019 at 19:54 #10285
North Carolina State Rep. Cody Henson – who was endorsed by the @NRA – was served with a domestic violence protection order last month. He‘s not allowed to buy firearms and has been ordered to surrender any he currently has to the local sheriff. https://t.co/evP28mZTNu

What a lovely thought. You enforce the idea that guns are made for killing and think that killing people is a good thing. And you wonder why Hillary called you deplorable.February 13, 2019 at 19:39 #10483
Mass shootings are almost always committed by men. Women with violent sociopathic tendencies are usually spokespeople for Donald Trump.
