NOWTTYG: No One Wants To Take Your Guns - dedicated to indexing news stories where law makers try to ban/confiscate/or otherwise severely limit the second amendment.

Welcome to /r/NOWTTYG, "No One Wants to Take Your Guns," detailing evidence contradicting the gun control movement's claim that they merely seek moderate "common-sense gun safety measures."

What we are looking for:

Specific legislative proposals (or laws) which involve seizure of existing firearms or outright bans of guns currently in circulation, or restrict/remove gun rights from people.

Editorials from reputable, substantive media outlets, or written by personalities which can or will affect the debate in months and years to come (i.e. not unknown bloggers or celebrities.) In order to accurately source quotes and make it hard to dismiss them as fabrications, links to original source content are preferred.

What we don't want:

Posts from other redditors, no name figures, people of no importance should go to /r/shitguncontrollerssay

Sites with ideological agendas make it easy for skeptics to dismiss any claims as exaggerations, out-of-context hit jobs, or outright fabrications. Whatever you may make of these outlets, they tend to be considered unreliable by advocates of gun control:

Newsmax, National Review, Breitbart, The Blaze, etc..

Media specifically concerned with firearms

Pro-gun political groups like the NRA, GOA, SAF

Well-known pro-gun writers (Kleck, Lott, etc.)

Relevant content on these sites should ideally be tracked down to their original source. Mainstream media is preferred (e.g., The New York Times) and submissions should be titled without further editorial comment. In every case, a skeptic ought to be able to follow the link and verify its veracity directly. Accordingly, unsourced quotes (the sort you commonly see on hysterical memes) or out-of-context quotes are unwelcome.

Each submission should end with the date of the quote or publication in the form (mm/dd/yy).

Specific legislation ought to be linked to directly, rather than linking to pages discussing the legislation. Quotes of interest from the legislation may appear in the title or comment section.

All posts must include the date of the content (Month/day/year)

"Ambler, her aide and adviser, tries to clarify that she means no more gun violence, but Giffords is clear about what she’s saying. 'No, no, no,' she says. 'Lord, no.' She pauses another 32 seconds. 'Guns, guns, guns. No more guns. Gone.'" [04/26/2023]
