Hell, if Jesus's 12 dudes had been armed he might still be alive.

The phrase "common sense gun laws" was, is, and always shall be a red herring. Those who use it are generally in favor of confiscation, or at best, severe restrictions and a national registry.

Why aren't anti-gun advocates ever specific in their desires? That's easy, and was demonstrated by the collapse of Beta O'Rourke. If you tell people you are going to take their guns, they will be against you on principle (often, even non gun-owners will be against in on principle).

"Common sense gun laws," to an anti-gun person or organizations (most of the left and all of the media) means confiscation.

"Common sense gun laws," to a reasonable person, means not going out and shooting someone (and prosecuting to the max those who do).

This picture proves it!
Jesus hates your faggoty-assed M-16 clones!
If you're such a pansy that you ever need more than one shot, get a Man's Gun!

6:02, they were armed. Peter cut off a soldiers ear, & Jesus told him to stop & put up his sword.

I don't know, common sense to me means, enforcing the laws on the books already. Banning a rifle that holds 20 or 30 rounds in magazines that can be swapped out in about 2 seconds. If you can tell me why people need that for "sport", I'm all ears. If you're convicted of domestic abuse, you don't get to have guns. If you're convicted of other violent offenses, you don't get to have guns. Idk, maybe 2nd or 3rd degree assault???? A national registry. If you're not a thug ass criminal, you got nothing to worry about right?

It is logically inconsistent and intellectually dishonest to claim to be against violence but also in favor of the essentially unrestricted gun laws we now have.

If you're really "pro-life", you need to be anti-gun.
