If drug control didn't work, why will gun control?

    I do support gun control in spirit but I just don't understand how we can see the war on drugs for the complete and total failure it is and yet somehow a war on guns will work?

    The mafia and criminal gangs got fantastically wealthy off the idiocy of criminalizing narcotics so how will criminalizing guns do anything besides making smugglers and the mob that much richer?

    Because science!

    Here in Cloud Cuckoo Land, there are no rules: There's no government, no baby sitters, no bedtimes, no frowny faces, no bushy mustaches, and no negativity of any kind. And there's also no consistency.

    i don't think anyone's really talking about criminalizing guns in general.

    'cause, you know, the second amendment and stuff.

    oh none of it is going to work. thats for sure. this country is gonna be as strung out mess a few years from now... and strung out people with guns can't be too good a combination.

    It worked in Australia. Google it.

    Which is weird because if anyone needs guns it's Australians. Everything there evolved to kill them.

    If an Aussie style assault weapons ban isn't on the table then end the war on drugs. These are the options to reducing gun violence in a meaningful way. Everything else the Dems are currently doing is self-righteous transparently ineffective political gamesmanship authoritarian police state bullshit, and I include Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Hillary Clinton in that assessment

    In all seriousness some gun control can work, like background checks and the like.

    I justdon't like hokey grandstanding when I see it.

    But the paranoia over mass shootings ignores the fact crime is down literally in half or to be specific 49 percent since 93 per FBI stats.

    There are reasonable thing we can do without all the pointless theatrics.

    I'm far more afraid of the police state of over paid cops targeting me and minorities than I am of street muggers or ra@nd on psychos.

    Australia has no porous land borders, no stupid gun culture that would feed demand and they dont have the levels of smuggling or gangs that we do either.
