They still have violent crimes despite the gun buy back program, murder is murder, you don't need a gun.

Move there, If you don't like it here then leave.

Since your Mister History, tell all the good folks why Japan never invaded us after they bombed Pearl Harbor.

The Emperor wanted a ground invasion until he was told everyone  here has a gun.

You are so willing to give up your rights...You are willing to become a subject instead of a citizen.

You want other peoples rights to be taken away, you can't see they are also yours.

You are not a survivor.

You think i play the lottery to win $4? The whole point of me playing the lottery is to get enough money to abandon the United States (although Portland is my fav place in the US) and move to one of five countries (Australia, New Zealand, Canada,Britain or Israel).

The whole point of Pearl Harbor was to delay the US buildup as they bogged down in China and couldn't spare much men to fight the US. You love to spew whatever nonsense you read on " Totally Legitimate Lizard People Network".

    Sully I'm surprised that you have weighed in this on this thread. I think you should have kept that to yourself. And now that you have weighed in it shows what your political affiliation is and it also will show that you and your party and people like you don't understand the everyday Americans who gets looked down upon by the millionaires and billionaries and it will not fly with the American people.

      The US has hundreds of mass shootings each year?  Please go ahead and choose one year and run down the "hundreds" of mass shootings that occurred.

      And to say that Australia has no mass shootings is wrong, sorry to burst your bubble.

      Besides, if there're no guns available, murderers and terrorists just find another way to kill people.  The 84 killed in France by the truck driver terrorist is just one example. 

      The only thing a gun ban does is take guns out of the common law-abiding citizens' hands.  Makes people easy pickings for murderers and terrorists.

      From the start of 2016 to today there have been 207 mass shootings 

      http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/ 

      No mass shootings in Australia in 20 years

      http://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/no-mass-shootings-australia-20-years-how-did-they-do-n597091

      gun bans are stupid, we need real gun control 

      one gun shop per congressional district, you must use the one in your district

      You must show verified proof of identity, including your birth certificate, passport, and licence

      Ban all non-citizens, those with any criminal record,  and those under 21 from buying a gun

      100% tax on all firearms and bullets 

        Mandatory 60 day waiting period for each gun purchased.

      Mandatory 3 visits to atleast 2 psychiatrists who will verify you are mentally capable of owning a gun at your own expense

      No more than 20 rounds can be purchased by an individual

      If bringing a weapon outside your district, you must notify the law enforcement in the area you are going to.

      Terrorism kills almost no one in comparison to "regular" criminals and mass shooters. The more difficult you make buying it, the less likely they'll be able to get one. 

      I know it'll never happen but this would end gun violence as we know it.

        I am neither Republican nor Democrat.  I follow my conscience and vote Independent.  I vote how I "feel" based on what options I have to choose from.  I voted for the Bush family twice.  I supported the Bush War.  I also voted for Obama twice.  I decided last year in 2015 that I would never vote for Hillary Clinton.  I considered Donald Trump, until he started running a Hate campaign.  Thus, I have rejected Trump.  I considered Gary Johnson, but I don't agree with some of his political positions, and he seems to hedge on some issues.  I think he would change his mind back and forth like Trump does.  I considered Bernie Sanders, but he always comes across like an Angry, Old, "***" Man.  Talk about temperament.  By process of elimination and default, that leaves Jill Stein of the Green Party.  Thus, I will vote for Jill Stein for President in November 2016.  I know she won't win, but I will continue to follow my conscience and vote Independent of the norm, when I feel that it is necessary. 

        If I lived in Canada and were betting on the next US President through the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, I would wager on Donald Trump to win, however, I would vote for Jill Stein for President.

        I admire what I perceive as your stated desire to vote your conscience after discernment. Presumably, part of your decision making process includes informing yourself in an unbiased manner- after all isn't that the great banner of the "independent" voter, that they are the only group able to cut through the Republican and Democrat party claptrap to make an intelligent voting choice. What baffles me is that you label Trump as running a "Hate campaign"; talk about falling into the trap of the crap that the media and Democrat party always place upon the Republican nominee, no matter who it is and which election cycle it is. Seems to me that a critique of Trump may rightfully lead one to conclude that he is not a tried and true Republican and/or that his positions on many issues seem to have evolved/changed over time, but hateful?  Everyone recognizes that America has millions of foreign born persons living here without legal status; Trump is a hater because he has stated his desire to stop this illegal action for future persons that would disregard American immigration laws and to also punish in some manner those that are already here illegally? If you are a country without enforceable borders and enforceable laws, what kind of country are you? Further, his stated position to thoroughly vet refugees to insure to the best of our ability that we are not allowing anyone into the country that would cause us harm is hateful?  I wish you success in your quest to make an intelligent voting choice but it is my opinion you have more work to do to arrive at an unbiased choice.

          That anti-gun website does not follow the common definition of a mass shooting, and is simply propaganda for anti-gun people.  Like you.

          Hopefully you don't face a murderer on your front porch while waiting 60 days for your firearm.  Because the murderer didn't have to wait when they got their illegal firearm.

          All of the various things in your post are stepping stones to a complete ban.  Not happening in this country.  Deal with it.

            Put your money on Hillary.  Hillary has the Hispanic, Black and White (except for some of the male white voters) voters.  Even corporations are pulling away from trump.  There was no one special at the RNC convention, oh wait, Scott Baio (chachi) was there.

                I have the solution...Anyone who uses a gun in a criminal act and takes a life should receive the death penalty.  And it should be carried out within two weeks.  That would solve the repeat offender problem.  Had a gun in my home for years and it hasn't shot anyone yet.  Looks like we have a people problem not a gun problem huh?

                    As a friend of mine jokingly says " Guns are too loud. I prefer a machete. No 60 days background check waiting period."

                              every graduating high school student should be given "free of charge" not one but two guns. now that is real gun control.
