    The distinction can indeed blur.

    In your opinion what do you consider what new laws would make "well regulated" a fact and give your reasoning behind each law.and how you would enforce each new law

    So? It still happens. This are should be closed, the loophole made non-existent.
    Good luck proving it.

    I get that alot, myself. Called a shade of anti-gun, even though I'm not, I used to be an owner, and what I'd actually like to see is safety being enforced and laws made to not make them impossible to get, but a lot harder to get, particularity for violent criminals and those with a history of aggression and violence.

    Those laws are already on the books, they have been there for years. Domestic abusers cannot legally purchase, own, or live in a residence where there are firearms.

    Mandatory safety training is not.

    Many gun shops offer safety training courses to those who feel they need it.

    Mandatory safety training will not stop those bent on inflicting injury and or death to others, just as drivers education does not stop automobile accidents.

    Training isn't about stopping accidents, just minimizing them.

    Safety is a concern it seems in this cases. No, it won't stop those, but safe and proper storage of firearms can help prevent theft, and general safety will help reduce the number of accidents.

    The only problem with storage is the cost of a safe that can not be readily removed. That would entail of a safe costing in the neighborhood of $900 or more and weighing in at a minimum of 600 lbs.

    Ah, so yet another law that will not be enforced....

    Especially in states where one is not required to register your firearms.

    It could very well be argued that if some of these mass shooters had had the type of training proposed they would have been much more effective in killing....

    And? Guns aren't necessarily cheap, and gun safety is paramount when guns are involved.
    And I've seen safe Way cheaper than that, including gun safes. I have no idea where you got that number (other than pricey safrs), but there is no reason anyone would have to spend that much.

    Yeah, they have for around $300 but you can pick one of those up and walk off with it. In other words .......will not deter a thief in the slightest and it holds only one revolver or pistol.

    That only works for 1 handgun correct? How about your rifles and shotguns and other handguns.

    I only carry 1 handgun in Mr van.
    However it will fit several.
    Long guns go in the safes in the basement.
