Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. announced the formation of Prosecutors Against Gun Violence on Wednesday. They have already enlisted 23 prosecutors from major jurisdictions nationwide to join the non-partisan coalition, the first effort of its kind.

Prosecutors unite nationwide to fight gun violence - The Washington Post

Why not be against all types of violence? Are these prosecutors are OK with knife violence?
Yes, better if it were for "prosecutors pursuing criminal prosecutions". That would cover every act of criminal violence, including gun violence. Remind me to stay away from whatever filtered water it is that they are drinking.

Prosecutors Against Gun Violence or PAGs announced today that they are out to destroy **** or Firearms are good and annouced a buy back programs foa all defective firearms . All owners of firearms that have never snuck out of a gun safe and started shooting people are being advised to turn in their guns now before it is too late.

Yes, we went to college and were told by our professors that guns are evil and dangerous and kill people and we are scared. Said the PAG leader and all those *** guys make me pee myself. So we are gonna do everything we can to eliminate the senseless gun violence caused by these guns.

Exactly - I'd rather be shot in the dome than beaten to death with a baseball bat or stabbed to death with a dull knife.

Sounds like a meeting of pea-brained libtards more than anything else.

when they eliminate plea deals on gun charges because that carries a longer sentence.....it might have some substance

Maybe they should just do their ****ing jobs before worrying about "uniting" with a bunch of other overpaid failures.

Prosecute every felon caught with a gun for 5 years and then get back to me. As to the federal statute, 10 years imprisonment. They won't.

Instead they'll have a convention on the taxpayer's dime and whine about universal background checks.

If they are prosecuting someone, doesn't that mean the violence has already been committed? When your life is the line and seconds count, you're DA will be on it, three months later. Probably prosecuting you for defending yourself.

A great time to post my previous thoughts about gun violence.

In life, words mean a great deal. Words are very powerful and the words we choose can significantly change the meaning of conversation and dialogue. Although some may consider it semantics, it is important to make this distinction. Custodial engineer or sanitation engineer sound very different than janitor or garbage man, and can change the whole tone of a discussion.

When was the last time you heard of someone killed by a drunk driver being called "alcohol violence" or "car violence"? When was the last time you heard of a stabbing referred to as "knife violence"? When was the last time you heard of a bombing killing innocent people described as "bomb violence"? I find it interesting that in those situations we blame the driver, attacker and bomber, not the instrument they used to harm others. Alcohol, cars, knives and bombs are nothing more than tools or things. They are inanimate objects. We don't make them into entities. Why isn't that done with guns also? Why do we blame the gun and not the person who shot the gun? The reason is very evident to me.

It is used this way by those who have an agenda, by those who have fear, those misguided and ignorant. It is done to accomplish a goal. That goal is making society so afraid of firearms that people will stop at nothing to get rid of them. All of them. It perpetuates the myth that guns are solely used to do harm without any ability to protect and do good. It is used by those who want to "feel safe", even though nobody is owed safety. Safety is not a birth right, only life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are. Don't get me wrong, I am all for people feeling safe and secure. In fact, that is why I believe in the ability for a law abiding citizen to own firearms and do so myself. Unfortunately there are those who feel the need to take away my right so they can feel "safe", when the real root of the problem is their fear. If someone chooses not to own a firearm, they have that right. They just don't have the right to make me defenseless so they can feel "safer".

Lets now look at the word "weapon". Can a hammer become a weapon? How about your fist? Any object has the ability to turn into a "weapon". We don't however refer to most objects as "weapons". You don't normally refer to something as anything other than what it is. Can a hammer build something? A hammers main purpose is to drive a nail. Can your hands create something useful? Well, like it or not, a firearm is designed to do something and that something is shoot. The purpose you use it for is a whole other story. Since a firearm can be used to protect and for sport, it shouldn't casually be referred to as something that only has the intention of doing harm, a weapon. Again, it can be with bad intent, but it is the intent or individual that makes the distinction, not the firearm.

Lets also take the term "illegal gun". When it comes down to it, there is also no such thing. Here we go with semantics again. Someone who has a gun that shouldn't is either an illegal (gun) owner, a person who has a gun illegally, or a person who illegally owns a gun. The gun itself isn't "illegal" because it is just what it is, a gun. Nothing more, nothing less. Don't misunderstand or misrepresent what I am saying here. Nobody is saying that a gun in the hands of a bad or stupid person doesn't have the ability to lead to a violent outcome, but the person is the reason. The individual would be the violent factor, not the gun.

To sum things up, in order for there to be "gun violence", the gun needs to get up, get dressed, load itself and leave the building to cause death and destruction on its own. Guns have no more of an ability to become "violent" than any other tool or inanimate object. Why not "human" or "people violence"? By using the terms like "gun violence", "illegal gun", etc., we make the mistake of making the gun responsible instead of the person using it, just as those who want to take our rights away would want. Please watch the words you use and correct others when they use them.
