Officer’s Murder In TX Undermines Gun Control Arguments

In the United States, no firearm is as tightly controlled as machine guns. You have to get permission from law enforcement to buy one, then you pay a special tax, all to get a fully automatic weapon. It’s everything the gun control crowd could want. Especially since people can’t buy anything made after the 1987 machine gun ban, thus making the surviving weapons extremely expensive.
Based on the arguments of anti-Second Amendment types, this should mean no one is ever killed by a machine gun.
And yet, a Houston police officer was killed with one earlier this year, as the officer’s bodycam footage makes clear.

What these people tend to forget is that criminals are ingenious.
More specifically, some criminals are ingenious. They will find all sorts of ways to do illegal things no matter what you throw up to stop them. We now have to sign in order to get certain allergy meds because some used the stuff to make meth, but since the rule went into effect, meth manufacturing has chugged along just fine, simply shifting to a different ingredient.
Guns are no different.

I like to say that USSA (United Socialist States of Amerika) has the finest light infantry in the world. Our drug gangs and others have enough munitions to resist an invasion for decades.
Remember: “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” — apocryphal unsourced quote attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto
So to the “crime” problem will NEVER be solved.
Look at NYC with no bail and no insane asylums. How’s that working out for us?
And look at the “lab experiment” in the Pepuls Republik of Kaliforkneeah, where the streets are covered in human (synonym for excrement) and drug stores are closing due to shoplifting on steroids.
