    Saying things of that nature only makes those of us whom oppose any gun control stand more firmly. How about we have I.Q. Test for voting. Let’s start with that and I bet things change for the better real quick.

      Right, that's what I meant. Rock Rat made it sound like the East was the hotbed of stupid, incompetent people who should have their ownership rights restricted (to be fair, he did mention California, too, i.e. "west of the Sierras.") -- and I was saying, Hey, they're not all in the east, look at out West, too -- and definitely including the Left Coast.

      Did I use that expression about cornering the market incorrectly? Could be; I was never all that sure how to use that expression.
      You used it just fine.

        Maybe a basic intelligence test, we don't want armed imbeciles. Ask things like who won the 2020 election or do horse pills cure covid.
        You mean east of the Smokey mountains.

          Thousands are leaving CA for Mexico. Might be some low IQ in that group.

            Here's EXACTLY why you tell liberals "NO!" when it comes to gun control!

            "... Democrats are not operating in good faith. Joe Biden himself has said that he and his party will not stop with this compromise. So why compromise? ..."

            https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/06...ks-out-n579614

            If I went in to negotiate, my first, nonnegotiable condition would be to repeal the GCA '34, the GCA '68 and dump background checks and nix Form 4473!

              I don’t think it should be the Wild West. But I also think the penalties for using a gun in commission of a violent crime should be so severe you would think twice. What’s a few years in prison to a criminal. 3 hots and a cot no bills or taxes. Shit they got a better deal than we got working everyday. Possibly an I.Q. Test I definitely know some people who shouldn’t be allowed to walk with scissors let alone own a firearm.

                I understand your reluctance, 'dawg, but I don't think it would turn into the "Wild West".

                  The Wild West was pretty tame compared to the mass shootings we have here today.

                    BTW, 'dawg, we've had laws against using firearms in the commission of a crime on the books for ages. It doesn't stop them if they are determined.
                    Shooting a LEO, whether fatal or not, should be an automatic death sentence.

                      The gun issue is sticky ! I do agree with dawg, it should not be all or nothing, but in saying that, that catches me agreeing with Bubba to a point ! As I said, a sticky issue. Dimwits can not be negotiated with where the 2A is involved as they leave no room for such ! As long as the SC is in the corner of common sense, we are still on the winning side. The midterms may very well be a determining factor if the D’s hold Congress, there is the outside chance they could pack the court and then all bets are off as to firearm ownership being protected. But as long as the SC is our backup I have to agree with Bubba in general, but not to the point of being the “Wild West” per dawg !!!

                        Florida shooters didn't give an inch on raising the age to buy semi-auto rifles, and so the legislature just raised to 21 the age for the purchase of ANY firearm, including .22 single shot bolt action target rifles.

                            I think most probably don't know the Sierras other than a pick up.

                              I guess you're right, generally E of the entire appalachian chain. W Virginians and Ohio have fairly sensible people.
