Theres somebody in the uk who the police made become a firearms dealer when his lee enfield collecting got to a silly stage ( the paperwork is easier on plod) he does sell the odd rifle but usually buys three more:D

His main threat to peoples health is if he corners you anorak does not even begin to cover it.

10,000 rounds sounds a lot but with with several diffrent calibres thats only a 1000 rounds a weapon which is a serious day out at a range with a semi automatic

Condescension and embedded self importance
Added. Everyone knows mass gun ownership is way wrong but well bribed politicians won't do shit.
The whole thing can be sorted with one bill, that banning bribes to elected officials, but way too many of them have their snouts stuck in for that to happen

At this point its the culture as well half of americans own guns but a lot of gun owners own a lot of guns.

Theres some very strange bloke on utube cycling about with a full size loaded ar15 on his back! To try to reassure people everyone carrying a loaded semi automatic rifle isnt a mass shooter!

Just more expensive. Knew someone who worked for accuracy international they make sniper rifles. Cost thousands of dollars for complete systems. They would sell some to Americans that would never be fired.
President Obama was their best salesman unlimited overtime after he was elected.

Something I can sadly relate to. Not the owning weapons that can kill people, but having something that's perfectly functional and yet desiring another similar one. :facepalm:
Indeed, UAOS, your puffer collection must be eye-watering.

I have a bit of a plant thing going on - over 100 massive rambler roses has turned my allotment into an impassable jungle. And salvias. And umbellifers. And hellebores. And tulipa.
Yeah, I get the collection thing. Harmless though...even to my minuscule bank balance.

President Trump spent at least 30 minutes on the phone Tuesday with Wayne LaPierre, the chief executive of the National Rifle Association, the latest conversation in an aggressive campaign by gun rights advocates to influence the White House in the weeks since the back-to-back mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

The call ended the way that Mr. LaPierre had hoped it would: with Mr. Trump espousing N.R.A. talking points in the Oval Office and warning of the radical steps he said Democrats wanted to take in violation of the Second Amendmen

And another last night:

Ten teenagers were injured Friday night during a shooting at a high school football game in Mobile, Alabama, according to local police.

According to Mobile Police Chief Lawrence L. Battiste IV, two people were detained for questioning. Saturday morning, police arrested Deangelo Parnell, 17, and charged him with nine counts of attempted murder, according to local news outlet WKRG.

Local news outlet WPMI reported that all victims were listed in police reports as injured. According to the Associated Press, at least six of the injured had been shot, and one appears to have had a seizure after the shooting began.

Five victims are in critical condition, but their injuries are not life-threatening, according to Steven Millhouse, a spokesperson for the Mobile Fire-Rescue Department. The victims range in age from 15 to 18, according to Battiste.

This shit is so depressing. If there was any justice in the world, the NRA and Trump would be in the dock for allowing this to keep on happening.
It’s just tedious now. I’m jaded with the subject. I was horrified with Columbine but it’s just business as usual now. Guess a lot of the US really love guns. I remember one of the bereaved fathers from Sandy Hook talking about gun control shortly after the tragedy. This shit must be a slap in the face to him every time history repeats itself.

After the Sandy Hook shootings I realized that nothing was ever going to happen on that front. Not because we tolerated little children getting shot, but because we tolerated little kids getting shot and tolerated their parents having to move seven times in the years since because of death threats and harassment. Anyone who would harass and threaten parents after a loss like that isn't even close to rational any more. There's something really sick going on in the culture right now.
