A politicians approach to regulating anything is not prohibition (particularly in the US they've got the T-shirt about how well that works)..Bdien will attempt to begin the encroachment of the regulation. But Obama failed and Biden will too, which is very, very sad in my view. The right to bear arms is total bollocks. Except for being surrounded by right-wing looney tune survivalists threatening civil war if they lose their toys.

You'd hope with control of the House & Senate they'd at least be able to get tighter gun control laws. Even that though could be reversed by a future president or the courts.

I think they need some kind of referendum on gun control. A majority of the public voting for it would be much tougher to overturn.

The right to bear arms is total bollocks. Except for being surrounded by left-wing radicals starting civil war cause they couldn't get their etatistical laws by legal way.

The right to bear arms is not bollocks at all.

Not everyone lives in a major city and can rely on the Police turning up in < 5 mins. Many Americans live miles from local law enforcement where they could wait upto 30 mins for help to arrive. If your in the middle of a home invasion then you need to be able to protect yourself, family and property. And dont forget some people live near to some prettry wild animals being Bears and Wolves.

For many reasons Biden and all other presidents will always fail to dissarm its citizens, mainly because the horse has already bolted. There is no firearm registry, so nobody knows who has what or how many. Asking people to just hand them over would never work in countries where each firearm is not listed, some being USA, Canada, Austria and New Zealand.

If you take the UK then from personal experience getting a shotgun is a piece of piss unless your known to the police for the wrong reasons, have mental health problems or spent x years in prison.

Most households assume their neighbours are armed in rural America, deterring all but the most determined criminals.

Guns are a great leveller and great for crime prevention. Should have the same rights here.

25,000 troops in DC under Trumps order. Why? To protect Biden or to protect Trump. Trump hasn't conceded, will Biden keep his promise and have Trump pulled from the Whitehouse? One thing is for certain (imo) this is the best real time movie ever... the whole world is watching & everyone is talking about the plot.
