    Not from the sampling on this board. DGF, MichVandal, and others have basically said "No Exceptions, PERIOD!". A gun is a gun. Ban them all. Too bad, so sad on your "traditions". Use a bow.

    I've been attacked on this multiple times. I also see this reaction outside the board as well.
    First of all: it took quite a few mass shootings to get to that point for them. (I have known DGF for 20 years so I know she wasn't always this militant about it)

    Second: you understand that 5 posters on a random message board doesn't prove your point at all and actually proves mine right?

    Third: Minnesota is a rock solid Blue State, one of the most reliable Dem states that exists that hasn't had a Red candidate win a statewide election since The Dubya administration. Hunting is a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge deal here. Deer Opener is like a friggin holiday. (not as big as fishing opener but still) The amount of Democratic hunters in this state (not to mention the surrounding states) disproves your entire premise.

    Now, do we think that regulations on the type of weapon available need to be upped hardcore...sure we do. If you need an assault weapon to kill a deer then you aren't hunting you are just sad.

    None of these limits interfere with hunting.

    Pass them now.
    Exactly.

    I would 100% support this.

    The facts are that responsible gun owners will not do what is necessary to pass laws like that, and we already know that irresponsible gun owners will not do it either. So, we're right back to putting Democrats in charge of everything while the country itself is a sea of Red that buys into everything the orange fuckwop says.

    Ban them all. That's where anyone with a brain starts the negotiation at. When ban them all actually has some power than maybe, just maybe what you stated above is the compromise position.

    As a reasonable step, this country should re-institute the 1994 assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. Then, it should beef up the ATF to enforce said weapons ban. It's not gonna happen though.

    So let's end a pastime of millions of Americans because some stupid/dumb stuff happened. Again, you lump everything as the same...

    Capacity limits that I mentioned would get you the goals that you want while leaving hunter's alone. What's wrong with that?
    I mean, we do things all the time because a handful of people die. We recall peanut butter nationwide because of a possibility of contamination. Guns shouldn't be treated less stringently than fucking peanut butter.

    They banned lawn darts. How many people did those kill?

    They changed completely the way over the counter medications were packaged. Because how many were killed, exactly?

    So, tell me more about guns and how safe they are, and how responsible their owners are.

    I never injured anyone with a lawn dart. Why can't I have them?

    Good luck with a complete ban, the gun owners I know and plenty of them have your favorite "military style" weapons are completely responsible and have caused no issues.

    Or do you not know/understand the nuance of different hunting firearms when compared to military guns?
    You just don't get it do you.

    Ban them all.

    Drew thinks we should ban them all.

    Just so no family has to go through the tragedy of losing a loved one to gun violence. Not a single one.
