New Texas law allows people to carry handguns without permits

Hello:

Ain't freedom great?

They're something like the 19th state to do that. I don't get why people were making a big deal out of it. I live in a state with constitutional carry and our crime rate is almost nonexistent. I'm carrying a gun without a permit right now. The fuck do you care?

It's better than New York, or any other state with a may-issue permit system which encourages bribery. You can basically only get a permit in NY if you're rich and/or famous.

If you live in a state with an almost non-existent crime rate why do you want to carry a gun?

Due to a specific threat I obtained a legally issued and properly licenced Smith & Wesson .38 revolver for years but handed it in as it was cumbersome to carry and when the threat abated I felt such a weapon was more of a liability around the house than a security aid.

In New York firearm licences are issued on a points system basis which has nothing whatsoever to do with one's financial status.

Texas experienced two mass-shootings in recent years just as the gun laws were being relaxed.

Having to apply for, and be granted permission to buy and retain a firearm helps to deny those whose personal profiling shows the presence of psychological issues, from easily obtaining such a lethal weapon.

You mention that ''a may-issue permit system which encourages bribery''.

If there is any bribery & corruption happenings I would attest that the small-arms weapon manufacturer's pro-gun lobbyists are the ones doing it.

None of your business, but I'll tell you anyway.

One, I like guns. Two, I work in the gun industry. Three, almost non existent and non existent are two very different things. Four, as 2020 showed us with massive runs on guns and ammo in the wake of civil unrest, the time to buy a gun is before bad shit happens. Five, competition. Six, the idea that we require the permission of a bureaucracy to defend life and liberty is directly contradictory to our founding values as a nation, especially when said bureaucracy wouldn't pass its own background check. Seven, the idea that when you choose to lay down arms dangerous people will do the same , or that you do anything but leave yourself at the mercy of them, is naïve wishful thinking to the point of insanity. Eight, if you trust the government about anything, including the idea that they will or even can keep you safe, then you're an idiot. Nine, a general faith in humanity that there are more good people than bad, and that while the latter may not be persuaded to the path of righteousness through propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good people with guns. Ten... Well, I'll stop there. I could go on for awhile. The reasons get plenty scarier from there.

And I've talked about pretty much everything else you've mentioned here ad nauseam before. Really, I just don't give enough of a fuck to hash that out again. Trust me, that way lies madness. You enjoy your opinions, I'll enjoy filling my gun safe.

O.K. side-buster, go for your bazooka.

It would have been amusing if, in the showdown scene of the movie;- For a few dollars more Ramon had had a bazooka instead of a rifle which was ineffective against the metal plate which the man with no name had placed on his chest.

Aqui no Brasil isso não daria certo em nenhuma situação. Até porque batemos o recorde de maiores mortes de transexuais no mundo e o 5º que mais mata mulheres. Então, pode ter certeza. Armas aqui são mais usadas em acidentes ou feminicídio do que auto defesa

Why can you greasers not establish your own debating forum?
