Response to Mosby (Reply #22)

23. Actually, they aren't brave

They are virtue signalling fools who want to say they are doing something about violent crime, when in fact they are doing absolutely nothing of value. Like registration, does nothing but provide public sector jobs. Gun registries cost money and provide no benefit, which is why Canada and New Zealand ended registration of several types of guns. No crimes are solved, no evidence of crime dropping, no empirical value at all. If a policy or restriction doesn't provide any empirical benefit, then it shouldn't exist. For example, when my state liberalized concealed carry, nothing bad happened. In fact, no noticeable negative effects anywhere that does. That tells me the restriction shouldn't have existed in the first place.
Actually, some members on the city council did, I doubt the majority of the citizens support it or care.
