I don't want to ban guns, I want to keep them out of the hands of irresponsible idiots (of which there are many among us). That means the drunks, the drug addicts, the domestic thugs, the bar fighters, the stalkers, the conspiracy nuts, and those who physically cannot responsibly use a firearm. What I want is sensible and effective universal regulation that limits who can own and use firearms by testing and licensing. Similar to the way we regulate who can possess and use dangerous motor vehicles, dangerous drugs, dangerous pathogens, and so on.Considering the premise would be because someone might use them illegally what is your next target to ban?
That s NOT NEARLY LIMITING ENOUGH. Right now I could have three DUIs, proving that I am dangerously irresponsible toward the lives and well-being of my fellow citizens, and I could still buy all the guns I could carry, including assault weapons, at my local gun shop or 'gun show'. And I could even give them away as gifts to all my fellow drunks down at my favorite bar.If a person is adjudicated by a court as being mentally defective or have been committed to a mental institution they are legally barred from purchasing a firearm *with exceptions*
This is not effective gun regulation. This is idiocy.
