    Bluntly, gun control is unwed parent control
    >>Most shooters are the products of unwed parents, by a long shot…pun intended.

    About 96% of shootings are with a hand gun, each year, every year…..an AR-15 is not a handgun.
    Apart from a handful of Dem run cities high in unwed parenthood and their children who commit crime 2000% more, America is safe.

    They’re NOT assault weapons … y’all are so damn ignorant when it comes to firearms. How can we even listen to people spout off about gun control laws when it’s out of pure ignorance!!
    COME AND TAKE IT

    This dishonest ballot measure not only bans all semiautomatic rifles and shotguns with detachable magazines it also creates an alarming backdoor registration of law abiding gun owners. Nevermind that more people are killed with knives, hammers, or fists and feet than are killed with rifles of all types combined. This ill considered anti 2nd amendment measure is bankrolled by a hypocritical billionaire gun confiscation proponent who's hired bodyguards and security detail uses these same types of weapons and more to protect him that he wants to prohibit you from using to protect you and your families.
    I genuinely feel sorrow for the families and victims of the vile killers and criminals that are the perpetrators of these heinous attacks but it is wrong to use their pain and loss to disguise the true source of this dishonest attempt to disarm law abiding Floridians and leave us defenseless against those who mean to do us harm. Please do what you can to oppose this foot in the door to gun confiscation before it's too late.

    All dem gun haters need do is simple. Name a gun control law that only affects criminals. It is clear dem gun haters cannot name one! There is one reason and only one reason to own a so called assault weapon. It is my right!

    So when a mass shooting happens you blame the gun, but when a cop shoots someone you blame the cop? How the hell does any of this make sense?!? I will never comply with those gun control laws.

  • stuck in a vase

    It doesn't matter what firearms these criminals choose to use to carry out these shootings many will die as slow as emergency response is.

    Damn media only plays one side. They are a big problem with issue. All the fake news has the same talking points. Go look at the stats the fbi put out you media morons.

    10,000 people die every year from DWI in cars!!!!
    650,000 people die every year from heart disease
    Of the 40,000+ people killed by guns 65% are suicide
    Less than 1% of shooting are used with rifles
    Fact: FBI study shows in 2018 gun violence down again from 2017.
    These idiot are focusing on the scraps instead of the meat!!! Which is the criminals!!! How about enforcing the current laws hold criminals accountable

    Fact:Chicago’s letting convicted criminals out of jail the next day after being arrested for gun possession? Please some explain is it really the gun? Or our justice system and law enforcement

    The rifle owners are saying they are willing to die for keeping the firearms, then there will be 35% less American people after the gun confiscation
