Democratic presidential candidates holding a forum on gun violence

Ten of the leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination will gather in Las Vegas on Wednesday for an all-day forum on gun violence. All candidates who qualified for last month’s debate will answer questions for half an hour at the event, co-sponsored by the gun safety advocacy group Giffords and March For Our Lives, a student-led organization.

The only thing they know for certain about guns is they need armed men to defend them. Us peasants aren't worthy.

'Gun Violence' Translation: an umbrella term created in order to lump any action with a firearm together for the purposes of ballooning statistical information for political expediency. 'Gun violence' includes homicides, suicides, and accidental deaths; despite its typical use of implying solely homicides. Homicides account for a small fraction (roughly 1/4) of 'gun violence' statistics. Politicians and pundits will claim 30,000 - 40,000 'gun violence deaths.' Per the FBI, roughly 9,000 firearm-related deaths are homicides, of that less than 500 homicides are from murderers using ALL types of rifles, including .22 bolt-action to the demonized scary black ones. This means that homicides from ALL types of rifles only account for roughly 1% of 'gun violence,' and roughly 5% of all firearm homicides. When someone uses the term 'gun violence,' one can presume that the individual is either ignorant of the statistical facts, or they are a bad faith actor.

Does anyone care? This is just going to result in each candidate trying to distance themselves from the other elebenty candidates by going further and further in their "suggestions". I predict that there is going to be quite a bit that would be unconstitutional.

That’s like a group of architects having a conference on biochemistry. They’re all completely uninformed.

Can't wait to see the creative ways they'll blame legal gun owners and proposals to get rid of the 2nd amendment.

Las Vegas, that's a funny place to pick for a gun control forum. I vaguely remember a shooting there that the media tried to ignore as best as possible. Weird since they usually have very lax definitions for branding something a mass shooting!

Simple answer... FUCK OFF with that violence shit! The upmost majority of gun carriers and owners use it for purposes of defense or as a deterrent!

Maybe they can get a group discount to go out and shoot machine guns while they are there. Highly recommended!
