    The stats didn't show that other forms of violence went up, rather that violence overall continued to drop with the gun control.



    Because Chicago isn't a country. Most of the guns used in Chicago crime come from out of state. I believe in states' rights, but when it comes to guns, we need federal laws.
    We have federal laws. Which you appear to be completely ignorant of

    The definition of "racist" as "anyone who is white" is itself racist.

    Because people get guns from other parts of the country. Gun control works when the laws are national, not local.
    Gun control doesn't work, period, unless there's no need for it in the first place.

    Where guns are restricted, dumbfuck, the gun death rate is lower. Deny all you want. You merely look stupid

    How are those "gun free zones" working out for you?
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    I don't believe in abortions at all, but I do believe that it's not my place to make someone else's decisions for them. I am not pro-abortion, but I AM pro-choice. Women need to be able to have abortions in a safe, legal manner.
    More innocent lives are going to be taken if these laws aren't allowed to stand.

    If you support a choice that allows abortion, you're pro abortion. The only person you're trying to convince and make feel better is yourself.

    Give them coat hangers.

    A heart CAN pump without a brain. It does not require signals from the brain to pump. However, without a brain, there is no breathing. The heart muscle dies as a result of no oxygen. It pumps useless blood until it dies.

    In the womb, of course, the umbilical cord takes place of oxygenating the blood. Therefore, no brain is necessary to pump that blood through the developing body. As long as the mother is breathing, the fetus gets oxygenated blood and no brain is required because breathing is not necessary.

    Heart muscle cells will naturally start twitching at regular intervals. If one touches another heart muscle cell, they will synchronize and twitch together. As the heart develops, a few cells take the role of pacemaker and produce the master twitch on their own. This is all you need to make a heart beat. As long as the muscle cells receive oxygen and nourishment, they will continue to beat completely on their own without any brain.

    A brain can adjust heartbeat rate, but it is not necessary to make a heart beat.

    No, life is living cells. No brain, no heart, no organs of any kind are necessary. Life is living cells.

    The first living cell with the number of chromosomes and DNA necessary to grow into a human being occurs at conception.

    Doctors do not consider a person dead when brain activity stop functioning. There are still many living cells in the body that will go on living for some time. They will eventually die of course without oxygen from breathing (which requires the brain), but they DO survive past the brain itself. Doctors consider loss of the brain a committed path leading to death, not death itself. They stop treatment at that point brain activity is lost because there is nothing more they can do. The result is inevitable.

(in an uncles cabinet or such)

    I would personally define an assault rifle as any automatic rifle that is magazine ready or can be fed a continuous supply of munitions so that the operator can fire dozens of rounds in seconds. You can sort out the measurements yourselves.
    The U.S. government does not have authority to ban either bumpstocks or automatic weapons.

    Most mass shooters use pistols or shotguns. An automatic weapon is not the same as a semiautomatic weapon. You obviously have never learned anything about guns. Who are you to decide what is allowed or not? Who are you to decide what gun is appropriate to own or not? You are not the king.

    Nah. Usually what happens when government tries to seize private property like this is a war.
