I'm not sure who should be more worried in America right now, Jews or non white people? I'd hate to be either one with what is going on.

She probably called her NRA handler after that interview to ask how she did.

I looked for a state that’s taking gun violence seriously. I found Massachusetts.
Quote:
Drive a few miles south to Massachusetts, though, and the process is very different. First off, it doesn’t begin at a gun shop; it begins by obtaining a permit to purchase a gun from your local police department — basically, a gun license. Obtaining this permit is a potentially weeks-long process, which requires paperwork, an interview, a background check, and, even if you pass all of that, the police chief has some discretion to deny the license anyway — if he or she, for example, knows something about your past that may not necessarily show up in your criminal record.

Only once you clear that entire process can you go to a gun store. Then, you have to show your license and pass additional background checks. If you do that, you can get your gun, which will have to be registered in a database of all the state’s firearms, the Massachusetts Gun Transactions Portal.

There are also rules for private sellers: Even if your dad gives you a gun, he has to make sure you have a firearm license and that the transfer of the gun is recorded in the state database — or seriously risk legal troubles of his own, since police may notice he’s not in possession of a firearm the database indicates he owns.

Quote:
The system, experts said, is one of the major reasons Massachusetts consistently reports the lowest gun death rates in the US. Based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, Massachusetts had 3.6 gun deaths per 100,000 people in 2016. In comparison, the top three worst states for gun deaths in the country — Alaska, Alabama, and Louisiana, all of which have loose gun laws — each had more than 21 gun deaths per 100,000 people.

As David Hemenway, director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center, put it, “All other things equal, [places] where there’s strong laws and with few guns do much better than places where there’s weak laws and lots of guns.”

The idea is not to remove the ability to own a gun, which is, for better or worse, a constitutional right in the US. In fact, at least 97 percent of license applications are accepted in the state, according to a 2017 analysis by Jack McDevitt at Northeastern University and Janice Iwama at the University of Massachusetts in Boston.

But Massachusetts’s laws create several hurdles that make it far more difficult for people, particularly those with ill intent, to purchase a firearm.

Sandy Hook Elementary School evacuated after bomb threat on 6th anniversary of shooting

What a [expletive] up world we're living in.


Daughter of murdered Sandy Hook principal remembers day of school shooting six years later

See if you can read this and not tear up.

A heinous murder of a family in St Charles MO by a guy who loves guns.

The chorus line response is already death penalty. Kind of like with the Catholic Supply store murderer, and gun nutter.

We really have a [expletive] up culture in America. You are a law-abiding gun owner, until your not. Then it's the gallows for you. Death is the only deterrent. And more death.

Gun owners have to get charged for this kind of thing.
