Ideas are good because it is a logical approach to solving a complex issue. I'm not complaining or opposed. What causes such the uproar is when people run their mouths based on fear, anger, and what the media portrays i.e. emotions. I have always wondered why the background checks and permits issued for weapons was relatively lax anyway. Same can be said for motor vehicle licenses.

Same can be said for producing children, too, lol.

Many people would be outraged having to do a background check for children. I wish we could though.

Dumb post is dumb. Monaco is the size of Manhattan, and is full of nothing but rich people. As for their policy, Chicago and LA do the same....hows the crime rate?

What is gun control...you seem to support it, so I'd like to know what IT means.

Without a problem, and probably within 5 business days. Most legal gun owners will just turn them in (people like casino, that claim to be "pro gun" but for regulation etc etc etc. The rest will start a war.

It would never work and I wouldn't seriously advocate for it, but it is funny to think about.

I will be ok with gun control if we can have children control too. You need to be approved, and under a MAY ISSUE statute to have children. Once that happens, we can talk about gun control, since they are both rights...Oh, and the funny thing is, child control WILL actually reduce crime.

I have yet to see any serious politician talk about banning ALL firearms.

How so? Kaput asked I provided. Perhaps he should have framed his question more specifically to get the result he wanted. But that wouldn't call for accurate results only desired ones.

The fear of Feinstein!

Everyone is on panic mode. Right now its all turbulence. But the panic and the louder voices in the gun community will extend the length of this turbulence.

Background checks for starters. I would like for some level of training to be mandatory, but for it to be subsidized by the Government to avoid limiting those who are not financially able to receive said training. I would even be comfortable with a written test similar to a driver's license. If you fail, you can come back next week and take it again.

I think another form of gun control is strict penalties for those who use them in crimes or acquire them for illegal means. And while it may not be a deterrent to some, it will at least hold them accountable and keep them off the streets.

I am okay with gun free zones in certain places like court rooms and schools. I understand the inherent risks of people not being able to protect themselves, but when you take a step back and realize the statistical insignificance of the events and remove yourself from the sensationalism it's really not a big risk at all.


Many things we already have in place. Some simply need to be reformed. I don't think limiting people's right to a CCW benefits anyone. We simply need to hold deviants accountable.

That sounds like all the rules that are currently in place... I had to take a 8 hour NRA safety course,involving shooting 3 different pistols,submit my finger prints to the town,and another set to the Feds for background checking,and a home visit from local PD to verify my true existance at my address. Also if I commits a crime with a weapon I am sure I will face legal charges. Now what MORE do you want??? Also when I buy a new firearm my CCW licence is instant checked with local and fed database...

The bold to be mandatory. Also support the background check.

Dont support the fingerprinting, registration, or address verification. F that (but don't tell ).
