    Suppressor or no? What's the MV on that?

    Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    How is gun ownership the "larger" point given that an increase of one SD in that rate results in just 16% of the increase from a single SD increase in the proportion of Black population. When did 12.9%>82.8% become a true statement? You really can't do anything about the gun ownership rate, so...

    Variable IRR (95% CI) P Interpretation Gun ownership 1.129 (1.061, 1.201) .001 For each 1-SD increase in proportion of household gun ownership, firearm homicide rate increased by 12.9% Percentage Black 1.828 (1.536, 2.176) .001 For each 1-SD increase in proportion of black...

    For me, an AR for home defense is a fairly specialized firearm with specific design features: SBR, suppressed, .300 Blackout.

    Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    I've looked at all of the points that the authors of the study you selected chose to include in the results of their study. How can science and data from the authors you quote be racist? Why did they decide to include this variable in their study? Are they racist? Yes, one of the findings was...

    Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    It's not my jam; the authors of the study that you brought to us list it second in their lists of causes of gun violence. They discovered that the science and data shows that a higher proportion of Black people in a population indicates a higher homicide rate. Shouldn't this lead us to press for...

    ACLU: Racism is foundational to the Second Amendment and its inclusion in the Bill of Rights.

    How does the Supreme Court case that first spoke to the 2nd Amendment and the right to arms, United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 (1876), fit into your position? Cruikshank recognizes the right of two Freemen, former slaves then citizens, to possess and carry arms for self defense, in...

    ACLU: Racism is foundational to the Second Amendment and its inclusion in the Bill of Rights.

    "The Fourth Amendment provides: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly...

    ACLU: Racism is foundational to the Second Amendment and its inclusion in the Bill of Rights.

    Like this: "Colorado: The right of no person to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property," How can this be misread as only protecting the people? The right to protect his person seems separated from "the people and the state". Or this one: Arizona: The right of the...

    ACLU: Racism is foundational to the Second Amendment and its inclusion in the Bill of Rights.

    Pot, kettle. No, but it empowered Congress to do so. At the federal level, only Congress can define "militia". They've done so multiple. That's a Constitutional power in play. I use Colorado as an example because I live here. We could use other states if you wish. "Well regulated" means...

    Why won’t Democrats offer “common sense” compromise solutions?

    Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    Laws are semantic. I bet I can. Some people have used a gun to keep them and their loved ones safe. Are you able to read the future that well? Doesn't the US have the highest homicide rate in the developed world? So if a person living alone on a sheep station 100 kilometers from his nearest...
