Gun control and "prohibited persons"...Submitted by ChristianAnarchist on Fri, 04/05/2013 - 06:48
So now we see a video of prisoners locked up in a New Orleans prison shooting up, drinking beer, and showing off their cell phones and loaded firearm.
What can we determine from this video? I'd say that the idea that “certain persons” are not capable of owning a firearm because they are going to indiscriminately start shooting people is wrong. Here are some very desperate and dangerous people who have very little to lose shown using “restraint” with their firearm even though they are “mentally impaired” on drugs and alcohol.
So why do you suppose they HAVE NOT started shooting the guards and tried to get out of there? It's because they KNOW it's not going to end well for them. If they were to try something like that the black boots will come down on their heads and they will be dead in short order.
People use restraint with their firearms because the know OTHERS have them too and they don't want to have someone kill them. It's that simple. No background checks needed....
