Hmmm, what happened in the last year or so . . .

Oh, that's right Texas passed Political Carry (aka Constitutional carry which it is not).

A new report from the Texas Council on Family Violence, a nonprofit coalition, found that the domestic violence homicides in the state increased 8 percent last year, and that the total number was the second-highest in a decade. Over 70 percent of those killed were shot.

I don't think he blocked you. If he had, you wouldn't be able to see his posts. nt CaliforniaPeggy Oct 2023 #5
I thought blocking someone meant you couldn't see their posts, yagotme Oct 2023 #6
My understanding is that it goes both ways. I could be wrong. nt CaliforniaPeggy Oct 2023 #7
I don't know. yagotme Oct 2023 #8
I think he's blocking you the old fashioned way... discntnt_irny_srcsm Oct 2023 #9
Possibly, possibly... yagotme Oct 2023 #10
So what is your hypothesis about the causal connection? SYFROYH Oct 2023 #11
Just data. AndyS Oct 2023 #12

No entity except the owner of private property has the slightest right to even an opinion on what firearms I have or have on me.

Then on to reinvigorating the CMP, making all surplus military firearms available to the citizens who want them.

not the other way around. If he hasn't blocked me, then he's not responding to me. He said he was going to block me, so I took him at his word.

BTW, I have never blocked anyone. Can't learn by sticking your head in the sand.

It seems that every time a state passes Stand Your Ground laws the homicide rate increases 15% over the next two years.

It is the same for Political Carry. 15% over two years.

Pass 'em both and 30% over two years.

Just data, just numbers, just a fact that more guns means more death and misery.

Maybe researchers will be able to do the deeper dive on the specific cases showing that but for constitutional carry, the additional domestic violence homicides would not have happened.
