    We haven't tried my idea yet, which is banning all guns except for police and military, but that's unlikely to happen in a nation so devoted to weapons.
    Because no politician or government official is that suicidal.

    No, just the opposite, if you actually cared you'd be using their deaths and their families suffering to shame those of you who continue to defend against a strengthening of the gun laws.

    No, the above is just your excuse for treating human beings like dogs.

    Thing is, what they'll do is worse for conservatives. At least with an outright gun ban, they know what's coming and what they need to do. Instead, they'll ban guns with gradual gun control creep. Red Flag laws, for example, is the epitome of a trojan horse gun ban.

    Is something bothering you? You're not usually this level of jackass.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    better to treat them like weapons to bludgeon your political opponents with huh?

    You seem to be the type to hope for more mass shootings so you have more ammunition to use to get your way politically.

    Prior to the TDS epidemic I'd scoff at such a statement as the ravings of paranoid conspiracy theories, but since that time we've had folks like Bill Maher admitting to hoping for economic collapse just because that would hurt Trump politically and then on Netflix's "The Break with Michelle Wolf" they asked the audience the question "Are You Sort Of Hoping We Don't Get Peace With North Korea So You Wouldn't Have To Give Trump Credit?" 71% said yes. These idiots would rather see a nuclear armed North Korea than Trump get any credit for disarmament.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    It may depend on the command policy. The Marines at our installation were not routinely armed. The times I could recall seeing them with weapons were after the Lebanon barracks bombing and 9/11. But there certainly were armories at both locations (Barstow Marine Base is split 11 miles apart between Barstow and Yermo)

    Edited: oh and when highly classified projects were at the depot there certainly were Marines with sidearms on duty.
