Stolen vehicles often start their life as LEGAL VEHICLES . . .  thus . . .the more legal vehicles the more chance they become illegal vehicles . . . and the more chance that  legal vehicles cause other harm and death  . .  . accidents, suicides etc

People steal vehicles for the purpose of causing harm, death, and suicides? Funny, I though they stole them to use them for the same purposes as people who legally own cars use them for. Transport.

Following the same logic, it would seem that people steal guns for the same purposes as they legally acquire them, for the purposes of having a means of inflicting lethal force and intimidation.

Actually,  in most cases,  thieves steal guns for financial gain. There's good money in selling guns.....the guy robbing usually already has a gun.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Right some are sold on the street, sold elsewhere. They filter down

Gov Scott signs a bill to help keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill people and there are tens of thousands of objections from gun owners across the country. lol. Even the Florida NRA rep supported the legislation, man.

Mental illness should be addressed (although it seems a few gun people object-lol), just not to the EXCLUSION of other measures.

"Gun logic" upon the approach of a Cat 5 hurricane:

"Damn, the 'real problem' is global warming . . .  . yeah . .  no need to evacuate or put up sand bags . .  . just fix global warming." ;-)

I agree with your point on politicians for sure, but just read through this thread and you will see many pro-gun people making my nonsensical hurricane argument about mental health and guns (i.e., suggesting that nothing should be done about guns, its all mental health).  With 300 million guns in the US and 30,000 gun deaths or so a year . . . . the cry of "mental health" by a pro-gun person is just like an ostrich putting its head in the sand

Don't have a problem with background checks myself......Just that most of us know what that leads to.

I get the "slippery slope" argument.  I am actually a small less intrusive government person myself.  It's just that gun laws are so absurd now.  Tons of laws on the books that create an illusion that politicians care, but really they are just terrified of losing their jobs
