    Saw this "Stop handgun violence" billboard

    Happened to be in Boston yesterday and this billboard caught my eye.

    The billboard in general irritated me given the ATF's responsibility in the recent gun sales to Mexican drug cartels. I'm not entirely sure what the private sale laws are in MA, but I do know its still pretty draconian and requires both buyer and seller to be licensed by the state. Not exactly a loophole. Not to mention that the group's main argument seems to be about preventing accidental shootings involving children, which no amount of background checks is going to solve.

    The "Gun Show Loophole" I'm pretty sure refers to private sales. You can buy a firearm from another person without a waiting period or BG check. At least that's how it is in FL. No paperwork required for private sales.

    Maybe that is an ATF advertisement?

    There is absolutely no way to stop violence be it hand gun, or just any kind. It could be knife violence, physical violence, automobile violence and the list goes on. Attempting to close a so-called "loophole" will do nothing to thwart violence at all. Humans reek of it and until attitude changes and people stop being violent in the first place, it will continue unabated.

    Our Utopian thinkers are still convinced that if you ban the object then violence will cease. They need to live in the real world for a change and see that what they propose is useless. Firearms can also be used to prevent violence but the anti's do not see it that way. Still, they keep trying and our elected one's do listen to their feeble voice.

    So why is there a silhouette of an AK-47 on a billboard for stopping handgun violence? Are these people stupid?

    I agree. most likely private sales. Outlawing guns is not going to stop gun violence it will only increase it and hugely at that. This may actually shock some people, but there are people out there who actually breaks the law, yeah I know, hard to believe but it's true. Drugs are illegal, but even in my small town you can get anything you want easily. All making gun illegal will do is make sure the bad guy has nothing to worry about if he/she decide to go into some place and start killing people. If more people carried there would be far fewer incidents. Its a simple fact

    Yes they are, their level of stupidity is indicated by the absolute non-sense that they spew.

    The debate between Socialism and Capitalism is only over because Capitalism was bound, gagged, and locked up in a deep, dark dungeon around about the time the Fed was established and income taxes started being levied. Capitalism didn’t lose. Capitalism was never even allowed to show up for the debate—because if it had been, it would have won hands down. The best way for the Socialists to assure victory has always been to cheat.

    The people who push gun control ( i.e. Hillary Clinton Michael Bloomberg) are actually really intelligent. They know that gun control has no effect on crime, they simply do not trust guns in the hands of the common citizen. So they disguise their bills that limit ownership to civilians as ones that will fight "illegal guns" or "gun violence" or other BS so they can get public support for their disgusting ideas.

    Talking common sense to a liberal is like trying to teach table manners to a pig.
