… everyone who doesn't lock up their weapons, with ammo locked up separately.

Not criminal misuse under most circumstances.

… everyone who leaves a firearm where a child can find it.

Not criminal misuse.

… everyone who sells a firearm to another person without doing a background check.

Not criminal misuse.

… everyone who has an arsenal of semi-automatics.

Not criminal misuse.

Your obnoxiously, murderously, narrow definition of "criminally misuse" is rejected.

And your expanded defintion with little or no basis in current law and is also rejected.

Like a typical sociopath, you hide behind technicalities of the law.

Actually the law protects everyone the same — it is the criminals we need to deal with.

Yep, the criminals I listed. The ones your NRA-dictated murderous laws don't criminalize. You're happy when children are killed. Their blood is on your hands.

You're happy when innocent concert-goers are killed. Their blood is on your hands. You're happy when people commit suicide with guns, when other methods might not be fatal as often; their blood is on your hands.

Yeah, more than 30,000 people dead each year and it's a big joke to you.

Fuck off, murder-lover.

more than 30,000 people dead each year

which is 1.3% of total deaths in the US.

Of that 33,000: 21,000 were suicides, 11,000 were homicides, 505 were accidental, & 218 were undetermined

Of the 11,000 homicides (gun crimes), in 80% of the cases the perpetrator was not a lawful gun owner but rather in illegal possession of a weapon that belonged to someone else.

Ah, so then all those people are suddenly and magically not dead! You've solved the gun problem! Hooray!

I never said they weren't dead. I said that 80% of the gun crimes are committed by people that were not lawful gun owners. 

Rather than bitch and moan, why don't you suggest something that will affect the criminals and not the legal owners?
