My home range gives a free rental on machine guns for birthdays to members, I chose the gold AK47 and it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time! Wish I could legally own one of these 😎

Question How can i carry on campus?

20 Upvotes

Im going to college next year and (sensibly) wouldn’t want to leave naked. I want to bring something with me but am unsure of the laws surrounding it. I want to bring a revolver or a 9mm with me, and the college im attending will be most likely in my home state ohio or maybe michigan. But would it be legal to bring one with me to my dorm or wherever i live and carry?

We are fighting because she told me not to bring my concealed carry along when going out with her parents. Her parents live in SF California and her dad wears a Ukraine bracelet for reference. How might I go about her getting to see my side of things?

Politics Help me debunk the argument that the expiration of the assault weapons ban caused a surge of violence in Mexico.

Upvotes

Hello, I was recently listening to a podcast where they were going over the history of the opioid crisis and the war on drugs. Apparently in 2005 there was a surge in cartel violence in Mexico and the host of the show blames this surge in violence on the US allowing their assault weapons ban to expire.

The argument I suppose is that during the assault weapons ban all the really dangerous guns were kept “off the streets” so smugglers were unable to supply the cartels with anything truly effective. Then the ban expired and “the streets” were flooded with “weapons of war” allowing smugglers to sell much more dangerous weapons to the cartel and thus increase the violence.

This argument seems dumb to me but I don’t have any hard evidence as to why it is dumb. If anyone had any references to any studies on the affects of the assault weapons ban on the smuggling of guns into Mexico I would appreciate. Also just any general counter argument to debunk this argument in case I run into it in the wild would be nice. Thanks.
