I agree with you about the Democrats not actually improving the living conditions of the destitute in America like they promise, but you lost me at gun control.
Prohibition in the 1920's and gun control today aren't the same thing. The ban was put on alcohol back then for moral and religious reasons. There is a debate on gun control today because it is slaughtering thousands of innocent people each year. Prohibition was implemented poorly and many bootleggers easily operated breweries illegally. They are not using "the exact same methods and ideas" for gun control. In fact many legislators and lobbyists aren't even asking for a blanket ban. Just background checks and tighter enforcement of existing laws would go a long way in keeping dangerous firearms (like military grade assault weapons) out of the hands of criminals and the mentally unstable.
Only ban something when there is no other alternative because otherwise your just increasing the black market value and there is a good chance that the problem will increase.
Guns are almost nonexistent in Japan, yet it is one of the safest countries in the world, with a substantially lower crime rate than the al'mighty United States of America.
btw i had a couple of lingering questions after reading your post
Im getting sick of all the 2016 political talk. Lets move on shall we?
if you want to move on, then why bother to write several paragraphs on political talk?
I posted this after debating the most closed minded 13 year old liberal twat I have ever heard. I won the debate, at least the teacher thought so, but ignorance mixed with arrogance always puts me in a fighting mood
are you referring to yourself as the ignorant and arrogant one?
