If I remember some of the worst gun laws we’re past by Republicans…hmmm

Wasn’t Reagan the one who advocated for a gun ban while he was California governer?

One main reason gun confiscation worked in Australia, is that it's an isolated island. Mexico, for example, bans just about all guns and ammo. Yet how many shootings does Mexico have? Cartels have little or no interest in an island such as Australia. Mexico isn't an isolated island and neither is the US of A. However, every legal US citizen will turn in their weapons because the government can and will seize bank accounts and make arrests. But be forewarned, there will be those that will not give up their weapons without a fight.

What about that time Reagen wrote an op ed in the New York Times in support of the Gun Control Law titled "The Brady Bill" https://www.nytimes.com/1991/03/29/opinion/why-i-m-for-the-brady-bill.html

What about 3 years after this speech when he signed one of the most comprehensive gun control bills in the nation? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firearm_Owners_Protection_Act

Does that not fit the narrative?

And yet, as governor he initiated the term "assault rifle" he also helped ensure passage of one main gun control law/and several small ones…history and facts matter

Like all politicians, Reagan was a zero made into a hero but still a zero

Reagan, then why did you support the Assault Weapons Ban and sign the 1986 Machinegun Ban, you worthless sack of shit? If you're so goddamn smart, why did you give illegal immigrants their first amnesty? What a crock of piss. If you're a conservative, I ain't with you.

But Reagan wanted to ban semi auto rifles

Sadly, libtards are too stupid to understand this! Even when their lives are saved by law abiding citizens, they still blindly spew their rhetoric. Sad and pathetic.

Funny but Ronald Reagan was know as the Governor in California that started gun control.

Marx is more pro-gun than Reagan.

What a racist he had no problem taking away guns from black people.

How many mass shootings have happened in the UK, this year? To help the pro gun side, the answer is a number.

Travis Decker - posted on April 23, 2019 6:20 pm

And then he supported a total ban

All you have to do is to enter every house in the United States unprovoked with a secret police (abandoned house or not, doesn't matter), find all of the guns (ALL) and just confescate them, and if they refuse, beat them for good measure. If for every state you deployed 6 squads of policemen each you can do that without alarming the populus, for extra safety, make the madia shut their mouths (through money or coercion) and make the internet companies shut down the web for about 5-6 days.
All in the name of safety, security and order comrades!

President Reagan, if you are so strongly, (even after you got shot in March 1981 by the world's greatest gun-owning freedom fighter), against all firearm laws, then you, on April 1981 you should have dropped all criminal charges against John Hinckly Jr. and let him go free and really forgive him as if it never ever happened as there are some US citizens feel that you are a tyrant!!!!

Funny. How about they drop the heavy currencies and go for a cashless society altogether? Other European countries have successfully been relying on just their cards.
That'll stop money funding of new gun purchases. And much, much more, including incapacitating small-time drug lords. And anyone concerned about protecting a Jewish school should just get a special gun license for the guard. Reducing American guns to 200 million is still a good thing. Statistically speaking, we don't want more deaths, whether of criminals or innocent civilians.
I would say screw your security if you think you want to have a gun license for no particular specific reason.

Reagan also thought "assault weapons" should be banned…

Australia had a mass shooting, enacted sensible gun laws, no more mass shootings

Funny thing that President Reagan or his administration never brought about gun control legislation. This is the legislation that he did sign. I seen comments on a ban on machine guns; however, no mention on how the amendment made it into the legislation (illegally of course by the Democrat Chairman): In the morning hours of April 10, 1986, H.Amdt.777 Amendment passed the House by voice vote, and the House held recorded votes on three amendments to FOPA in Record Vote No's 72, 73, and 74. Recorded Vote 72 was on H.AMDT. 776, an amendment to H.AMDT 770 involving the interstate sale of handguns; while Recorded Vote 74 was on H.AMDT 770, involving primarily the easing of interstate sales and the safe passage provision. Recorded Vote 74 was the Hughes Amendment that called for the banning of machine guns. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), at the time presiding as Chairman over the proceedings, claimed that the "amendment in the nature of a substitute, as amended, was agreed to." However, after the voice vote on the Hughes Amendment, Rangel ignored a plea to take a recorded vote and moved on to Recorded Vote 74.[9][10][11] The bill, H.R. 4332, as a whole passed in Record Vote No: 75 on a motion to recommit. Despite the controversial amendment, the Senate, in S.B. 49, adopted H.R. 4332 as an amendment to the final bill. The bill was subsequently passed and signed on May 19, 1986 by President Ronald Reagan to become Public Law 99-308, the Firearms Owners' Protection Act.

Wasn't Rangel still in Congress until recently? He refused to do a role call vote on the amendment, so as usual Dems changes the rule to put more "control" over the American people.

Didn’t Reagan pass one of the first gun control laws in the country, when he was Governor of California?

J. Derek Williams - posted on August 8, 2019 4:08 am

Are we just going to ignore the gun control laws that Reagan signed as governor and as president?

Gary Smith - posted on August 12, 2019 1:25 am

Didn't Clinton apply gun laws against assault weapons and it reduces mass shootings huge?

CJC - posted on August 25, 2019 1:30 am

Conservatives need to stop hiding behind Reagan, he singed the 1986 gun act, meaning Reagan supported aspects of gun control!
