In an EIGHT YEAR period, lawn darts ("Jarts") were implicated in the deaths of fewer than ten people. As a result, the CPSC issued regulations banning them in this country. You cannot legally buy them in America or import them from outside the USA.

However, in a ten-minute period in Las Vegas on October 1st 2017, semi-automatic weapons, high-capacity magazines, bump stocks, and high-velocity ammo were responsible for the deaths of 58 people. Time for the CPSC to step in and impose another ban, right? HA!! So long as you are over 18 and can pass an anemic background check, you can still legally buy as many of these as you want and can afford.

Today's marches and rallies show that I'm not the only person who believes there is something wrong with this kind of 'logic'.

There is no constitutional protection for lawn darts.
Assault and murder are illegal, and have been for sometime... Knives were used to kill more people than rifles, are you ready to ban knives, how about scary looking knives with specific cosmetic features? When a firearm is designed with a 20 or 30 round magazine, there is such a thing as a low capacity magazine, but, calling a standard magazine, high capacity is ridiculous and dishonest. A bump stock, something I'd bet 99% of the country knew nothing about before this hysteria began, isn't a gun, doesn't work like you were told, and oh, by the way, the same effect can be reached by using your belt loop. Ban belt loops, it's our only chance!

Wow! Those are very powerful! I hope these young people keep pushing until there is real change. From your neighbour to the north I hope you feel our solidarity to the cause!

Why should we listen to kids about gun control, when 2 weeks ago they were eating tide pods.

No, muskets didn't fire 950 rounds per minute, however, the whole of human knowledge wasn't available via a pocket carried device either. Ban cell phones.

Wow when I was their age I took an oath to protect and defend the constitution, not to shred it. Times have changed

No one is shredding the Constitution. We'd just like our well-regulated militia to be well-regulated.
