The “Thought and Prayer” approach to gun control works as well as you think it does.

Now, you’re being childish.

A high-powered firearm is overkill unless you are law enforcement or military. I don’t believe you are either, therefore owning a gun like that is irresponsible.

Thank you for sharing your opinion on this matter. You may rest assured I will give it all the consideration it deserves.

The regulations I’m suggesting are similar to the ones on cars.

Try as I might, I can’t find any “Right to Own a Car” in the Constitution. Which means that the analogy is puerile.

Why would firearms be different from alcohol?

See above. But to your point, it’s not. If you were to put a tax on a bottle of vodka that put vodka out of reach for anyone outside of the top wage earners, you’d create a de facto state similar to Prohibition, and history tells us how well that turns out.

False. It’s a mis-direction. CITIES with strict gun laws are often a short drive to some place with lax gun laws.

True. And sans a Constitutional Amendment, cities with strict gun laws will always be a short drive from a place with lax gun laws.

So we’re back to thoughts and prayers. Thanks, but no thanks.

It’s not like you have a choice. :-), other than to huff and puff and blow nothing down.
