Cruz is right....

That scumbag said that...."...the proposals the Democrats have — none of them would have stopped this.”
That's because the Dems will propose some kind of rational step that almost anybody could agree with. Not Repubs, of course.

Why not go for gun registration, shooter registration, competency testing, safety training... the whole enchilada?

Nothing the Dems propose will pass anyway, but at least we'd be on the record as favoring real reforms that really would work.

1. I propose the south and western states secede from the Union.

And every single person who owns a gun can go live there.

And leave the rest of us the hell alone.

I know, a tad bit draconian, but that is where I am now.

4. OK you are right, West Coast can stay.

But if they are hungry they need to go to the grocery store or order pizza not shoot up stuff.

If they can't afford food, we buy the groceries for them.
Cheaper than all this gun misery, death and destruction.

2. Watch Beau of the Fifth Column's commentary...

The numbers of guns are staggering.

*600 years* if we confiscate guns one a minute every minute of every hour of every day.

Domestic Violence? No gun for you.

6. Oy, math

OK, I'll math:

31,556,926 seconds per year.
x 600 years
-----------------------
18,934,155,600

No. He made a very awkward point about how a tombstone would be for a kid born today.

However,
it might take decade(s)


More guns in America than Americans, yes?
330,000,000
434,000,000 guns in US estimated. Likely far more.

We should limit gun ownership and prevent those prone to domestic violence from having them.
We should buy back as many as possible--money talks.
It's the guns.
